New Testament Is the Product of the Catholic Church

Date for the New Testament

The New Testament was the product of the Catholic Church in the 4th CAD and the stories in it are based on mythical avatars and parts of the Old Testament. Because Constantine established the religion at the Council of Nicaea and invented Jesus Christ as its prophet the controversy started at that point. Those who conspired with his fraudulent actions include Jerome and Eusebius, who are both credited with writing some of the book.

Emperor Constantine and the Catholic Church

Emperor Constantine could hardly be called spiritual when his murderous raids left thousands dead and his history is one of greed, bullying, manipulative behaviour and violence that could be compared to that of Hitler. In fact, the latter may have used Constantine as his role model. But he needed to create a powerful force to maintain control over a massive empire that had previously seen five emperors ruling it. One by one he saw to their demise as he worked his way up to sole rule.

Manipulative and Murderous

His rise to this position occurred over the bodies of family members including his eldest son Crispus along with two brother-in-law emperors and all their family, including his nieces and nephews. His wife, the mother of Crispus was also murdered. The religion he formulated was a vehicle for more power and controls through the parliament it maintains. It supervisors the different branches and denominations that have grown from it that are referred to a company of nations or a consortium.

Birth of Christ

In Matthew the story of the birth of Christ is identical to that of Krishna, the third person of the Vedic Trinity. This Indian Trinitarian religion was favored in Greece when Plato produced his theory of the soul and he determined how it is impregnated with stains (sins) that God can read when it rises to heaven. ‘Soul’ is from ‘sol’ which is another term for ‘sun’ and ‘sin’ is from the same source.

Comparison with Joseph

The comparison between Jesus Christ and Joseph, the son of Jacob, is extraordinary. Joseph was sold to the Egyptians for 20 pieces of silver by his brother Judah. Christ was sold by Judas for 30 pieces of silver. What the New Testament authors did not realise is that Joseph was given the inheritance of Israel while they nominated that Jesus Christ was a Jew. The controversy is that the Jews sold Israel for money so why would the so-called Saviour of Israel be a Jew?

Jews Suffered

There was much going on around the Roman Empire at the time of the formation of the Catholic Church and the New Testament. The Jews were a hated lot and they had suffered extraordinary hardship under their captors. The city of Jerusalem had been raised to the ground by Titus in 70 AD and most of the citizens were slaughtered. The temple was destroyed at that time and the stolen gold was used to build the Colosseum using Jewish slaves.

Son of God is a Jew

It as an interesting twist by Jerome and his consortium to have Jesus Christ arrive as a Jew. But it was also clever because the Emperor knew that by nominating him as such that his roots in other mythology would be less likely to be exposed. It would also be considered a generous act to recognise a Jew as the Son of God. There was also the question of illiteracy, as people did not generally read or write so it was highly unlikely that his lies would be found out. Even Constantine was illiterate, having no need to undertake the learning of letters as others did that for him. Jerome, on the other hand, was a well-educated and travelled scribe and student of Plato.

Author of Matthew

The most likely author of Matthew is Jerome who formulated the laws, order of service, calendar and even the costumes and instrument used by the priests. He was also a Roman who knew about the Vatican sitting over the temple of Jupiter (i-pita in Italian). This was nominated as the rock on which the Christian religion is founded. It is also the origin of the name Peter. The clever switch from a Jewish name Simon by the one who called him the rock of the church was part of the conspiracy.

Eight Voluntourism Projects With Silly Species – A Traveler’s Guide to Volunteering With Animals

You’re going to do what on your vacation? Work? With..?

Voluntourism is one of the fastest growing segments of the tourism industry. Combined with the basic nature of people who possess altruist tendencies, it is not surprising that wildlife, animal rescue and conservation projects are also becoming increasingly popular. Few voluntary spirits would not be moved when looking into the eyes of a young chimpanzee or could not become exhilarated by the idea of helping dolphins in the wild. They are, after all, awe-inspiring. Still, there is another side to volunteering with animals – the silly side.

Beyond the awe-stuck factor, beyond the creatures of fame and popularity, there are ‘lesser’ creatures, animals needing your help just as much as the ‘glam’ species – animals that, well, despite their best intentions make people giggle. Let’s face it, some critters are just funny. There is nothing wrong with that. Be it their appearance, their habits or just their name, certain animals bring out a sense of fun or whimsy in the more childish parts of human hearts.

There is more to being an adventure traveler than wandering aimlessly off the beaten path and embalming one’s self with the local hooch or jumping off of a perfectly good bridge with a rubber band strapped to your ankles. Volunteering with animals can take you to places you never imagined. Better still, you go to these places with a purpose. Aiding in the lives of animals gives you a reason to immerse into a culture alongside like-minded people or to head deep into the wildest parts of a country.

Beyond true adventure, altruism, learning and purpose (as if that were not enough), there is also laughter to be had while helping animals. So before you wash up on yet another beach with no real direction, consider these lovable creatures and worthy projects that could use your voluntary hands.

1) Wombats

Yes you can! You ‘can’ volunteer in a Womatorium that is. Who else, but the Australians would bring us such an opportunity?

Read the PDF information on their website to get a real feel for this project and the happy, hardy spirits they need.

6) Lemurs

When nothing but some monkeying around on vacation will do, you can still experience the wonders of Madagascar – The Land of Misfit Primates.

Organization: Location: Beautiful lakeside camp of Lanirano in Fort Dauphin, Madagascar
Cost: From $2,600 for 4 weeks
Duration: 4 or 8 weeks
Overview: Volunteers work on an extensive range of projects from the collection of data on endangered lemur species to environmental education with local communities and tree planting for reforestation purposes. During this time you will get close to the three main species of diurnal lemur you are likely to encounter in the bush – Verreaux’s sifaka, Ring-tailed lemurs and Brown lemurs.

7) Meerkats

There is a reason meerkats have their own television series and land mo
re parts in movies than your average large-breasted starlet. See why for yourself.

Organization: Earthwatch Institute
Location: Upington, South Africa
Cost: $3,750 – $3,950+
Duration: 14 days
Overview: Help observe six habituated colonies of meerkats in South Africa’s Kuruman River Reserve. You’ll learn how to radio-track, conduct focal sampling, use a Global Positioning System and weigh meerkats. The data you collect will help researchers evaluate how cooperative breeding affects the survival of both pups and helpers.

8) Penguins

This one’s for the birds (again, it had to be said)! Some travelers just have to be around marine environments, so if you have salt water in your veins (and a tuxedo under your swimsuit) here is the project for you.

Organization: Greenforce
Location: South Africa
Cost: $2,600
Duration: 6 weeks
Overview: Volunteers learn how to catch, handle, feed, tube and administer medication to a variety of seabirds, as well as assisting in the intensive care unit. Past volunteers have sailed to Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned) to release penguins into one of the world’s largest penguin colonies.

Volunteer travel is truly addictive. Think of each project as a potato chip, every chip is a little different and you can’t have just one. Spice things up with a little humor and you will only add to the experience. So, the next time someone wants to know what you’re doing on your vacation, hold your head up high, tell them you have a hot date with a southern hairy-nosed wombat and make a beeline for the airport. Do it with pride and a smile.

An Introduction To The New HTC Flyer Tablet

When looking to buy a mobile device, there are many factors that play a role in the deciding whether or not a person will make the final purchase. One of the most popular mobile devices to hit the market is tablets. Tablets are a great alternative to a laptop computer and are much faster and can accomplish more than a smart phone. One of the newest and welcomed tablets is the HTC Flyer. It is slightly smaller than the typical tablet computer but it is as fast if not faster than the best tablets currently being sold. With the power of an Android Operating System and having the HTC Sense UI, this tablet could become a huge success.

One of the most noticeable differences about this particular tablet is that the screen size is only 7 inches. This is significantly smaller than the common tablets but the resolution is much better as far as viewing videos and playing games. The resolution of the screen is 1024 by 600 pixels which is much higher than most tablets. Many laptops do not even have resolution equivalent to this tablet and that is what makes this a great device to travel with. The screen also has HTC Scribe technology which allows users to take notes and draw directly on the screen.

Another great feature that makes the HTC Flyer worth purchasing is the cameras that are built into the body of the device. The rear camera is 5MP and is great for taking photos of just about anything. Usually, a 1MP camera will take photos that can be printed out without any noticeable distortion of the image. A 5MP camera is great for printing out larger copies of a picture or for taking pictures of objects that are farther away. The front facing camera is only 1.3MP is meant for video chat or taking photos of the user. This is a good feature because users do not have to stand in front of a mirror to take their own picture to upload to a social networking site.

One of the most important features for a tablet is its processor and memory. The HTC Flyer has a fairly good processor. The processor of the tablet is a 1.5GHz processor that comes with 1GB of RAM. This is enough so that users can play their games without any problems and videos will play smoothly without very little buffering time. The 32GB of built in storage memory will be sufficient for most users but there is an option of expanding by using the microSD slot.

Overall, the HTC Flyer is a very portable tablet and is much more functional than a cell phone but the screen size may be an issue among people that are accustomed to the larger screens. With the speed that the processor provides and the resolution of the screen, users can enjoy full length movies without worrying about not enjoying it because of the screen. The battery life of the tablet is adequate enough to view a movie without the battery needing charged which is always a good thing for devices that are meant for travel.
