(A Savage Comment) COVID-19: A Culling Of Our Herd?

COVID-19: A Culling Of Our Herd?

 

The reason for this letter to you tonight is designed to do one main thing, to get you to think! At this moment in time we are all living in a world unlike anything that any of us have ever witnessed before. This COVID-19 is not just a medical issue, it is also a psychological and a spiritual issue for each and everyone of us. To me, this is a good time to learn who we are as a race, the one that calls ourselves human. In this letter to you I am only hoping to open our minds to possible realities on this COVID-19 issue. I am not trying to tell you what to think, thats your job.

 

Back in the history of human time there have been cases of humans being culled out through such things as warfare, discrimination, enter-breeding, religious hatred and diseases. In a sense humans are a lot like animals in the same realities of extension. On a more recent comparison for us in history is when the Europeans came to the Americas with all the germs that they carried with them. Don’t get me wrong, every person that came across the pond could have been totally healthy yet they were still carriers of diseases the Native people had no defense to.  In that case many millions of Native American people died. Yet, not all “Indian” people were killed by white mans and black mans diseases nor even by their bullets nor starvation. Some (a few) do still remain to this day. But, why didn’t the different diseases from Europe and Africa kill off all the “Indians”? It has to be because the Indian folks grew an immunity to each of these diseases. The closest thing to these current events was in 1918 when the “Spanish Flu” killed tens of millions of people in the U.S. and especially in Europe. Folks, yet once again, 2/3 or there about of the people survived. Survivors had to grow to a level of immunity. 1347-50 In Europe the “Black Plague” is said to have killed 1/3 of Europe before it tore off into Russia in 1350. Folks, people in Europe and in Russia survived by the millions and tens of millions even though many million did die.

 

What I am saying is “immunity”. We humans will grow an immunity to it just like our pets and other animals seem to have. This COVID-19 is going to be something that all future people will have as part of their personal DNA from now on. Isn’t the only other option one in which this eventually kills everyone on the planet? If that was to be the case “what kind of world” would it be that we will be surviving in anyway? A Culling OF THE HERD? Think about it for a moment please, if one million people world wide die from this disease or even lets say five million people die from it, there are over seven billion humans on this rock. The percent “culled” is tiny when you compare the two. I just asked Google and it says if 5 million people die on the planet from this disease that would equal about .000714% of the worlds population. What I am saying folks is that most all of everyone is going to survive this, otherwise it would be a world killer and then there isn’t any thing we can do anyway that would prolong any life with a life style worth living for. Personally I get through these issues with a quiet prayer a few times a day, maybe that might help some other folks also. Faith is a wonderful thing, (Faith) and (Love) I do wish upon everyone of us.

(A Savage Comment)—Why That Name?

 

I got to thinking a bit about my decision to call comments or short stories that I write directly to you “A Savage Comment”. To me it seemed a natural thing to do for one and only one reason, thats what I have been called since I was a wee lad. So, if you would, take note, the title has nothing to do with pro intentions of/or for about hate. I just thought that maybe one or two of you’all might have had a question about that.

 

On a much more somber note, I just wanted to say that you are all in my prayers and I ask everyone to stay calm. Spend some time to inflect upon our own self, quietly. Hopefully a bit of personal time in quiet prayer with our Creator. I pray for peace for all of us, no matter what the results around us, stay at peace within our own minds, within our own Soul, comforted with God’s Holy Spirit, our Creator. God’s Peace to you all I pray.

(Philosophy Poem) When Prayer Stops

When Prayer Stops

 

When the prayers we pray stop

Will it be from lack of air, or faith

When or will there be a time we stop

Think if no one had ever, prayed for us

Would we feel special, upset, or insulted

 

If Faith does indeed exists

Would Prayers not soon follow

Is Love not required, for a Soul to live

Can one have Faith if they posses no Love

Without Love a persons prayer is but dust

 

We live and we die by what we believe

Do we only believe that which we see

Or can Faith redirect a persons vision

Can we Believe though we are blind

Our end will be at the end of Prayer

(Another Savage Comment) When The “Use” Of Prayer: Stops

When The “Use” Of Prayer: Stops

 

I as a person of Faith do believe that the “use” of Prayer is ever present in the eyes of our Creator. I believe, it will always behoove the Human Race to Pray as long as we are doing it in Faith.

The question I have for us today is about when or what if the Human use of Prayer totally stopped? I believe that our answers will vary mostly depending on our own personal belief of if we are a person of Faith, or not. If we have no Faith, why would we, why do we still Pray, just once in a great while, or, why don’t we, any longer?

Bring this subject matter in close to our own lives for a moment please. No matter which Faith system we believe in, if any at all, when was the last time that we, said a short little Prayer on something that mattered to you? Seven plus billion Souls on this Rock, all equal Grains of sand. For each of us, how long has it been since we bent a knee in Prayer? The question remains, do we have any faith? Seven billion grains of sand, all singing one song, or is there nothing but silence? Do we pray, do we not, do we care? When will the last Prayer be said for the likes of each of us, you and me?

Israel: Temple Mount status quo should be changed so Jews can pray there

Minister says Temple Mount status quo should be changed so Jews can pray there

Gilad Erdan stresses new arrangement should come from ‘diplomatic agreements and not by force’; draws criticism from Jordan

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Tuesday said Israel should push to change the status quo at the Temple Mount, days after clashes at the Jerusalem holy site.

As part of an arrangement in place since the 1967 Six Day War, when Israel captured the Old City and East Jerusalem from Jordan, non-Muslims are barred from praying at the Temple Mount, which is the holiest site in Judaism and third holiest in Islam.

Erdan, whose ministry oversees police responsible for security at the Temple Mount, voiced support in an interview for changing the existing arrangements there.

“I think there is in an injustice in the status quo that has existed since ’67,” he told Israel’s Radio 90. “We need to work to change it so in the future Jews, with the help of God, can pray at the Temple Mount.”

He clarified that he opposes introducing such a change unilaterally.

“This needs to be achieved by diplomatic agreements and not by force,” Erdan said.

The remarks drew a rebuke from Jordan, whose foreign ministry warned any change to the status quo at the Temple Mount could have serious consequences.

A ministry spokesman said Jordan, which Israel recognizes as custodian of the Temple Mount as part of the 1994 peace treaty between the countries, sent a letter of protest over the public security minister’s remarks through diplomatic channels.

Talk or even rumors of changes to the status quo arrangement at the holy site are typically met with vociferous protest from the Muslim world, which has accused Israel of attempting to “judaize” the site or expand access for Jewish pilgrims.

Some Jewish activists have pushed for Israel to allow Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount as part of the country’s commitment to freedom of religion. On Sunday Tamar Zandberg, a lawmaker from the left-wing Meretz party, tweeted that Jews have a right to pray there but the best way to guarantee freedom of worship is through a diplomatic arrangement.

The compound was the site of clashes between Muslim worshipers and police on Sunday over the entry of Jews during the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, which this year coincided with the Jewish fast day of Tisha B’Av.

On Sunday, Jordan’s foreign ministry slammed Israel for using force against Muslim worshipers at the Temple Mount after clashes erupted there.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar, as well as the Palestinians, also condemned Israel over the clashes.

According to Erdan, 1,729 Jews entered the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av, a new record high for a single day.

Initially, police announced Sunday that non-Muslims would be barred from entering the Temple Mount, where tens of thousands of Muslim worshipers had arrived during the morning. Hundreds of Jews had gathered at the gates leading to the holy site on Sunday morning.

But following an uproar from right-wing ministers and lawmakers, a first round of Jewish visitors was allowed to enter the site. Several dozen visited under close police escort, but Muslim worshipers began throwing chairs and other objects at the group, and the Jewish visitors left the compound shortly thereafter.

With fewer Muslim worshipers on site than there were in the morning, the second round of visits by Jews took place largely without incident.
