Monsanto Wants to Know Why People Doubt Science
http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/02/27/monsanto-wants-to-know-why-people-doubt-science/

Philosopher Paul Feyerabend argued that science is not an ‘exact science’. The manufacture of scientific knowledge involves a process driven by various sociological, methodological and epistemological conflicts and compromises, both inside the laboratory and beyond. Writers in the field of the sociology of science have written much on this.

But the answer to the question “Why do people doubt science” is because they can see how science is used, corrupted and manipulated by powerful corporations to serve their own ends. It is because they regard these large corporations as largely unaccountable and their activities and products not properly regulated by governments.

People’s faith in science is being shaken on many levels, not least because big corporations have secured access to policy makers and governments and are increasingly funding research and setting research agendas.

Ultimately, it is not science itself that people have doubts about but science that is pressed into the service of immensely powerful private corporations and regulatory bodies that are effectively co-opted and adopt a ‘don’t look, don’t find approach’ to studies and products.

US waging wars to push economy
http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/02/26/399335/US-waging-wars-to-push-economy-Analyst-

“The United States should not be waging more wars. It has not the capacity economically to support” these wars, said William A. Cook, a professor of English at the University of La Verne in southern California and author of several books.

“The consequences of that to my perspective is that the United States is acting in this fashion in order to sustain the military operations that have been the only fuel to push its economy in these past ten years,” he noted.

End of the War Dollar

End of the War Dollar
http://thedailycoin.org/?p=19756#sthash.bajGpuWY.dpbs

The past several years I have heard the US dollar being referred to as the “petro-dollar” insinuating that oil is actually what backs the dollar. Close, but not exactly accurate. What backs the US dollar is war. The military is the backing force for the US dollar. Saddam Hussein and Moammar Gadhafi are prime examples of what happens if you decide exchanging your oil for something other than US dollars is a good idea.

Is Matriotism The Future of The Divine Feminine?
http://www.wakingtimes.com/2015/02/25/is-matriotism-the-future-of-the-divine-feminine/

The sacred linguistic roots of our words for ‘mother’ tells us a lot about the reverential, matriotic roots of our ancestral societies. Indeed, there are traces of ancient cultures in which women were not just respected but revered as manifestations of the divine feminine.

The feminine influence on our cultures, and correspondingly, the manifestation of feminine nature of our collective consciousness, has diminished throughout recorded time – an era of increasingly patriotic global elitism. As our reverence for the nature of ‘the feminine’ has diminished, so too has the influence of women on the priorities of our civilizations. Around the world, entire civilizations have lost their energetic balance, becoming overtly militaristic, competitive, nationalistic and institutionalized. Uncivilized. Our societies embrace priorities that undermine the ‘feminine’ virtues of individualism and sustainability. Without the natural feminine balance, our most influential institutions are competitive and not co-operative, controlling not enabling, scientific not spiritual, and structured on the irrational principles of militarism, consumption and perpetual economic growth.

Such widely held expectations of feminine ‘normality’ undermine the very divinity of the true feminine nature. They treat femininity as a value that must be achieved through outside means, a goal, not a divine sacred essence. Today, women are socially encouraged toward the “masculine” roles of provider, competitor and protector, not only by an increased economic necessity but in part by the common interpretation of “feminism” as a woman’s right to embody “masculine” roles such as military, competitive sports etc., rather than a broader opposed to a social movement to instil “feminine” values into our broader culture.

Radical Oppression and the Rising Ecocide

The definitions above represent one of the more subtle ways the divine feminine is undermined by the radical patriarchy. However much more overt oppression of the sacred feminine is evident in other extremes; in cultures like our own, where femininity has been objectified by popular culture into the realms of over-sexualized male fantasy, while at the other extreme, in certain Middle Eastern countries (among others) for example, women’s value is considered to be far less than that of men – and in some cases, less than that of the animals the family raises. There are cultures in which women are routinely given lashes in public… or worse… for causing men to rape them. And those where women cannot go anywhere alone, and remain hidden behind garments that conceal their appearance. In China, this perceived inequality of genders and chronic overpopulation results in countless female babies being discarded at birth. And let us not forget the great tradition of the ‘chastity belt’. Or the practice of routine female genital mutilation, which prevents women from experiencing their whole sacred female sexuality.

Such practices don’t just violate the individual rights (and lives) of females but pose a collective attack on the very nature of the divine feminine. They undermine the sacred gentleness, compassion and wisdom inherent to humanity’s feminine nature, and facilitate the dominance of the decidedly un-sacred masculine.

The oppression of the sacred feminine is further obvious when we look at the psychology of systemic environmental destruction. The sacred feminine once kept whole communities intuitively tuned with our Mother Earth, valuing her as the nurturer of life, and honouring her need to be nurtured in return. By conditioning entire populations to perceive disconnection from their natural environment and the nurturing energy she embodies, the patriarchy has managed to undervalue the need for sustainable, compassionate thinking in our collective plan, and gained our ignorant but willing consent to destroy great swathes of our beautiful planet – on our behalf but to their benefit – and all in great the name of human progress. And while this ecocide continues, so too does our collective affront to the divine feminine – to Gaia herself.

Edgar Cayce Talks About Consciousness
http://www.zengardner.com/edgar-cayce-talks-consciousness/

According to the secret teachings, the universe was not first created out of matter, but existed prior to material creation in spirit form. Imagine a consciousness similar to our own, except that this first consciousness was boundless, a Universal Consciousness. This is God. At some point, the Universal Consciousness desired to express itself. It began to conceive, to imagine, and to express Its inner promptings. And so the creation began – light, sound … eventually stars, galaxies, trees, and rivers. This point in creation was still prior to the physical creation of the universe that science records. This was a realm of thought; no physical forms existed, only thoughts in the consciousness of the Universe. The physical universe had not yet been created.

According to the secret teachings, there came a point in this creation where the Creator’s Consciousness desired to bring forth companions, creatures like unto Itself that would share in this expression of life. In order for the creatures to be more than creations, they had to possess individual consciousness and freedom so that they could choose to be companions. Otherwise, they would only have been servants of the Original Consciousness. So within the One Universal Consciousness many individual points of consciousness were awakened and given freedom.

The great paradox of humankind is that we are now both spirit and flesh. That’s like saying we are a combination of oil and water, two substances which do not combine. The mystical analogy would more properly be fire and water; these, too, don’t combine. How can anything be made up of two substances that are impossible to combine? Yet, such is the nature of humanity. We are constantly forced to reconcile the seemingly irreconcilable: mercy with justice, cooperation with independence, unity with diversity, tradition with change, feeling with thought, love with truth, and on and on.

“Lucy” : A Movie About Luciferian Philosophy
http://vigilantcitizen.com/moviesandtv/lucy-movie-luciferian-philosophy/

Luc Besson’s Lucy is a movie about a woman who unlocked the full, 100% potential of her brain power instead of the 10% humans reportedly use. While many viewers were confused by the movie’s odd mix of pseudo-science and action scenes, the core of the movie lies in a whole other realm: It is about the Luciferian philosophy of the occult elite and its futuristic pendant, transhumanism.
