The World Will Not End on 9/23/17

There are several prominent prophecies about 9/23/17 being a day of bad omens. One links a prophecy from the Bible’s Book of Revelations about a virgin giving birth as the dawning of the dawning time of tribulation. Others interpret it as the birth of the Antichrist. There actually will be a planetary alignment in which the stars in the constellations of Leo (power) and Virgo (the Virgin) and the sun, the moon and several planets in our solar system on that day.

This unusual alignment of stars and planets will have some magnetic effect on Earth but it will not cause the end of the planet. It will not trigger the birth of the antichrist. It will not trigger the beginning of tribulations. It will, however, augment whatever perceptions or beliefs people already have. Until it passes and people realize that 9/23/17 didn’t trigger anything significant at all.

In Defense of Black Lives Matter

By The Prophet of Life

From The Book Black in America a Kindle e-book available worldwide through Amazon.

President Obama compared the Black Lives Matter to the Suffergete and Abolitionist movements. Newt Gingrich said that its very name black lives matter, was racist because it inferred that only black lives matter. The movement has drawn criticism for the radical things they have done to protest the perpetual slaughter of unarmed African American men and boys by armed, white police officers in America.

The Black Lives Matter movement does do more than just march down public sidewalks and in front of public buildings carrying protest signs and placards (although they do that too). The have blocked major public roadways with their bodies, shutting them down for hours. Some people among their group claiming to be their followers have gotten violent. The attack on the Dallas Police Department by a single, black assailant and the killings of two more African Americans at the hands of police officers this week, have exacerbated racial tensions. In my book Black in America, (available exclusively on Kindle) I wrote a piece of literature which I believe, explains why The Black Lives Matter Movement is called that. It Follows below:

Why We Say Black Lives Matter

When we say

Black Lives Matter

We are not saying that ONLY black lives matter

We do understand that All Lives Matter

And we are not negating that fact

 

When we say Black Lives Matter

We are issuing a call for JUSTICE

We are issuing a plea to stop the murder of our children

Who, as members of the human family, represent all of our children

 

And we wonder why we must call for justice

If we live in a Just Society

We wonder why there should even be a reason for us to call for justice

If we live in a Just Society

And we wonder why the blood of our children runs in the streets

Beneath the tainted shadow of racism

 

So next time you hear someone say

Black Lives Matter

Know that it is a call for justice

And think about

Why we need to call for justice

If we do, in fact,

Live in a Just Society

 

If you still think that the Black lives Matter movement is racist and that African Americans don’t have a real cause for concern about whether or not their men and boys will return alive, after leaving the house, and if you, after reading this article still believe that America actually is a Just Society then I suggest you ask yourself one more question. Would you have the same point of view if there was an epidemic of armed African American police officers killing unarmed white citizens?

Muhammad Ali, A Life that Impacted The World

By The Prophet of Life

For a time, he was one of the best known people in the world. He completely changed the sport of boxing. He changed his religion and his name at the height of his popularity. He even defied the U.S. Government when he was drafted to go to war. Muhammad Ali became an icon in sports, in the counterculture, in the African American Community and in the cult of Personality. He was a media sensation of his own making.

Born in Louisville KY in 1942, Cassius Clay, began boxing when a policeman suggested he do so to channel anger he had after someone stole his bicycle. By the time he was 19 He won a Gold Medal in boxing for the U.S. team in the 1960 Olympics. He entered professional boxing soon afterward and by 1963 amassed a 19-0 record. He had defeated all of the other contenders for the heavyweight crown and was scheduled to fight champion Sonny Liston.

Ali taunted Liston in the press everywhere he went. The press reported his exploits and taunts but few took him seriously and fewer thought he had any chance of beating Liston who was bigger and stronger than Ali. When the first blows began, Ali was a 7-1 underdog but his superior speed and powerful blows forced Liston to quit the match before the seventh round bell. At 22, Ali was the youngest boxer to beat a reigning Heavyweight Champion.

Ali was considered the greatest boxer of all time because he defeated every major boxer in what is considered the golden age of boxing. His emphasis on speed and colorful self-coined descriptions of his style like, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee” captivated people. He revolutionized the sport, which had been dominated by gigantic men, of huge strength for decades. His gift of self-promotion, confidence, pride and his personality all played a part in making an Ali fight an entertainment spectacle that filled seats and garnered mass media coverage.

Ali was a unique and revolutionary figure in many ways. He touted pride for himself at a time when many black people lived under Jim Crow and Apartheid. He converted to Islam at a time when a majority of Black Americans were Christian. He even stood up to the might of the U.S. Government.

Ali refused to go into the army when conscripted during the height of the Viet Nam War. He refused on the grounds of being a conscientious objector. This was unheard of. Ali’s public popularity rapidly declined. He was jailed. He was stripped of his championship title and banned from boxing He appealed his incarceration all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and won. He was then reinstated into boxing but he lost four of his prime boxing years during the process.

Over the next decade, Ali won and lost the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship twice. He regained it from Joe Frasier and took it from George Foreman. Two of his fights the “Rumble in the Jungle” against Foreman and the “Thrilla in Manilla” against Frazier were epically successful internationally. Ali declined as a boxer after that but continued to be a success. He penned a best-selling book about his life. The book was made into a major movie which he starred in. There were other acting roles and media events he was part of. He even got Saddam Hussein to release hostages when he invaded Kuwait in the 1990’s.

Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1984. He was still active while battling the disease which he had for the rest of his life. He raised a lot of money for charity and garnered the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005.

There has never quite been another sports personality like Ali. In the heyday of his boxing career, he was able to control how he was presented by the media and in doing so, was able to control the public perception of  his persona. He was always colorful and controversial. He was both polarizing and inspirational. He never shrunk from a fight both in and out of the ring, no matter how daunting the odds. He broke many molds and became a unique individual whose existence had a global impact in many different fields. It is unlikely that there will ever be anyone quite like him again.

EgyptAir 804 Wreckage Found!

By The Prophet of Life

Paris—The wreckage of an Egypt Air Airbus 320 plane flying from Paris to Cairo that disappeared in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea has been found. Authorities are now working on the theory that a bomb took the plane down.

Egypt Air Flight 804 left Charles De Gaulle Airport at 11:09 P.M. on Wednesday May 18, 2016 and was due to land in Cairo at 3:15 AM on Thursday, May 19, 2016. At 37,000 feet above the ground, just off the coast of the Greek Island of Kea, the plane disappeared. There were clear skies when the plane disappeared from the radar screen

According to Greek Air Traffic Controllers the flight appeared to be going smoothly the entire time it was in Greek airspace. Air Traffic Controllers talked to the pilot of the plane when it was above the Greek Island of Kea. At 3:27 A.M. the shortly before the aircraft was supposed to exit Greek airspace Greek air traffic controllers attempted to contact the aircraft to transfer control to Egyptian Air Traffic Control but they couldn’t get a response. About two minutes later, the aircraft entered Egyptian airspace. About forty seconds after that, it disappeared from the radar.

66 people from 12 different nations and three continents were aboard the aircraft. About half were Egyptian nationals and 15 were French Nationals.  There were also Europeans from Britain, Belgium and Portugal. There were Africans from Chad, Sudan and Algeria. Saudi Arabians and Iraqis from The Middle east and Canadians from North America. Three of the 66 passengers were children.

The Greeks and Egyptians both launched sea rescue operations immediately. A distress signal was detected in the general area where the plane disappeared about 90 minutes after it disappeared. It is unclear if the signal was from the aircraft or a ship at sea. If there are any survivors and in the water, Spring survival times in the Mediterranean Sea are between seven and 48 hours.

French Authorities have opened an investigation into the plane’s disappearance. Although investigators haven’t said it went down as a result of a terrorist act, they haven’t ruled terrorism out either. Flight 804 underwent routine maintenance in Cairo before going to Paris to pick up the passengers and had flown to Eritrea & Tunisia earlier that day. Investigators will be checking maintenance logs and looking into possible security breaches everywhere Flight 804 traveled yesterday.

The Commitment

I read an interesting short story that is a parallel to current world events in regards to terrorism. The story focuses on what is going through the mind of a suicide bomber as his mission draws near. It’s taken from a book 9: 9 Stories of Fiction on Kindle by Author Mark Wilkins. I wrote the publisher and obtained permission to re-print it here.

Here is a link to his author page:

https://www.amazon.com/Mark-Wilkins/e/B01BCK92IC/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_1

Oofa Poofa made a commitment to join the terrorist organization. He came from a poor family in the village of Mamalulu Southeast Dadastan. He was opposed to the tyranny of President Gogo’s brutal regime. He hated the oppression against his village. He hated the persecution of his family for following the Mamasect instead of the more popular Dadasect that most of his nation followed. The previous regime had shown tolerance for his people but Presdient Gogo wanted to wipe Mamaism from the soil of Dadastan forever.

Oofa was indoctrinated into the terrorist mentality. He was given a constant verbal barrage listing the acts of oppression his people had struggled with all of his life. He learned that it wasn’t normal. He was made to believe in the virtue of dying for the cause. He was trained in military tactics and how to shoot a gun. He was trained on how to blend in with a crowd while being packed with explosives and how to pick targets.

Last night, he was sent to the nearby Military town of Kilakilla. He spent the night at a terrorist hideout disguised as a book store. He ate a wonderful meal, perhaps the best of his life. He filmed a video stating that he was opposed to the injustices his people had suffered. He gave cryptic goodbye messages to his friends and family without naming them.

Today was the day that he would make the ultimate sacrifice for Mamaism. He emerged from the terrorist hideout in the guise of a fat man. He walked down the narrow streets into the marketplace. He saw a group of the dreaded Mustafa Guards, President Gogo’s Elite Special Forces. As he walked towards them, one of the soldiers made a statement meant to imply that a fat slob was coming towards them.

 

As Oofa got closer, he began to have second thoughts. He knew that the government would condemn his actions. He knew they might take their anger out on his family. He knew that his death would be a tragedy.  He realized that he didn’t really want to die. He decided to turn around and walk away in the next five steps. He counted them off, one… two… three.

Just then, one of the soldiers noticed a wire hanging out from Oofa’s shirt. The soldier shouted something as he reached for his holster. Oofa knew it was too late for second thoughts. As the soldier drew his pistol, Oofa pressed the button. He didn’t do it as a result of his training. He didn’t do it out of a commitment for the cause. In the end, he did it because he knew he was going to die anyway. An explosion rocked the marketplace killing all of the soldiers. Oofa was a martyr for Mamaism. Or was he?

Brussels

A Poem by The Prophet of Life

BRUSSELS

In a nation of two languages

Neither of them it´s own

Where the king of a democracy

Has his palace

BRUSSELS

The seat of power for the European Union

Where Intra-European deals are made

By movers and shakers

That speak many different languages

BRUSSELS

Where a modern Metro

Connects many parts of the city

In minutes

Including

Where many Muslims live in a segregated section called Molenbeek

MOLENBEEK

Where the Paris terror attack was plotted

MOLENBEEK

Where people knew that one of the Paris terrorists was hiding

But no one told the police

MOLENBEEK

Which has some sections even the police are afraid to enter

Out of FEAR

FEAR in the seat of power of the European Union

FEAR of a culture and languages unknown

MOLENBEEK

Where a dual, divided culture exists

A culture of one religion

But two cultural generations

One of assimilated old timers

The other of expatriated youth

Who speak the same language

but fail to communicate with each other

and give rise to a fertile crop

Of easy terrorist recruits

BRUSSELS

Where a Paris terrorist was captured

But vowed further attacks

BRUSSELS

Which will shall henceforth be known

For a suicide terror attack

And bombs that blew up

An airport

And a metro stop

BRUSSELS

The seat of power for the European Union

Pockmarked by ISIS infiltration

With an infrastructure in panic

and FEAR of TERROR

Now TORN between

The IDEAL of a FREE, Civil Society

And the TERRIFYING REALITY

of the Implementation

Of a POLICE STATE
