Throughout recorded history majority of humanity has seen existence of the Creator, Who intentionally brought the Universe in to being and sustains all life as an obvious truth. This truth does not stem from doctrine or belief system, but it is at the heart of all religions, and is underlying, indispensible principle of most spiritual practices. In Buddhism, misrepresented as an atheistic tradition, recognizes existence of guiding consciousness. As the Zen Buddhist master, Soyen Shaku, said, “Let me state that Buddhism is not atheistic as the term is ordinarily understood. It has certainly a God, the highest reality and truth, through which and in which this universe exists.” Scientific discoveries have only reinforced this realization, as it becomes even clearer the Universe was carefully designed. Prominent British mathematician Roger Penrose calculated the probably of random chance producing a Universe conducive to life at vastly less than scientifically accepted definition of “zero.” Even if one were to accept arguments from those who claim the Universe is not so “fine tuned,” we must rely on the mind-boggling, and empirically unproven, concept of multiple Universes, and then probability of random events leading to life only budges from staggeringly unimaginable to extraordinarily unlikely. And we are still left with such clearly designed, incredibly complex, mechanisms as DNA and the brain. This is not “God of Gaps” explanation, any more than looking under the hood of a car and deducing a designer is “Engineer of the Gaps.” To postulate a random, undirected, meaningless, existence in the face of unbelievable complexity and purpose of life is, in actuality, the much more irrational, and less logical, conclusion. This has been compared to proposing that a hurricane whipped through a junkyard and randomly assembled a jet plane. Late in his life the previously ardent atheist Anthony Flew famously noted, “What I think the DNA material has done is that it has shown, by almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce life, intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinarily diverse elements to work together.” For his honesty, courage and humility, Flew was mocked, and even labeled as senile, by many ardent atheists, who saw his statement as an unforgivable, heretical violation of their strict dogma that any hypothesis is acceptable except God.
To make the scientific claim that one will “go where the evidence leads,” and yet consider such utterly unsupported hypotheses as multiple Universes, alien seeding (which, of course, still leaves the questions of where the aliens came from), mind memes (a total fantasy) and lightening strikes animated primordial chemical soup to create life (which has never been scientifically reproduced), while not even considering the obvious possibility of a deliberate Creator, is to be intellectually dishonest at best. What are the reasons for this irrational, and often very nasty, refusal by some to even consider the existence of a Creator as a viable hypothesis? I offer several possibilities:
A Childish Concept of God
For many, the belief in a Creator is rooted in a personal, direct encounter, in God experience, others often is pure consciousness, pure creation, endless love, animating energy of everything, or the Ultimate Reality. For those who experienced God Presence God concept is sophisticated not childish, based on immaturity, knowledge and innate gifts. Jehovah God is a man seated on throne in white cloak, long beard who made the world according to Isaiah in the Bible.” Richard Dawkins, for example, said, “We are all atheists about most of the gods societies have ever believed in; some of us just go one god further,” he showed a childish image of God. And he showed a lack of any experience in the spiritual realm. If he had any direct experience he would have known that all these societies were attempting to describe the mystery of Spirit in human archaic terms and idea of competing gods is a literalistic and immature one. Jehovah is the Most High God Above all gods made by man so must humbly recognize theology is an activity for which, frankly, he has little talent or understanding. Such a childish view of God is not limited to atheists but applies to religious folks who place dogma over personal experience, and for whom any digression from dogma is punished.
Tyranny of the Mind
The human mind is a powerful tool, but can also be a cruel tyrant. While it is skilled at storing and analyzing data, it cannot feel, and so there is much such as art, music, compassion, love, sex or Spirit that it cannot truly know. The mind, though, insists on analyzing these things, and tries to convince us that its analysis is the only way of knowing. It does this because it has little trust or no respect for anything not measurable and linear, and consequently it resists recognizing the other essential human facilities: needs of the body, the wisdom of emotions, and most especially, the guidance of Spirit. For those who have developed strong connections to body, emotions and Spirit, the mind can be managed and used properly. There are those who for a variety of reasons, have weak connections to body, emotions and Spirit. Their mind has free reign, dominating their lives and seeking to eliminate anything it cannot rationally comprehend. Then the mind eliminates anything that challenges its supremacy. For such a tyrannical mind, concept of a Creator God Ultimate Superior Being of intelligence that dwarfs theirs own is completely intolerable.
An Ego Strategy
As I’ve written in several previous blogs, the ego is the software implanted in us to ensure survival. Its job is to scan for threats and devise strategies to avoid pain and death. The ego knows only fear, and it will fiercely fight anything that threatens its survival. And nothing is more frightening to the ego than sharing or ceding control with another, because this feels like death. So the ego’s favorite strategy for protecting itself is the refusal to surrender to anything or anyone. It will even go so far as refusing to acknowledge a mistake, to apologize, to recognize superior abilities in others, to admit a weakness and, most pathetically, to ever express gratitude. I recently heard a man state that he “does not believe in gratitude,” but instead prefers the word “appreciation”: “I appreciate a delicious meal or a beautiful sunset, but I feel no need to say ‘thank you,’” he proudly proclaimed. This is the voice of ego. And to make the claim, as did the late Christopher Hitchens (who I deeply respect for his exposure of injustice), that there is no Creator/Designer because Hitchens did not approve of the way that eyes are designed, is also the pathetic voice of ego; it is the refusal to say “thank you” for the gift of life and miracle of sight. This is sad. Clearly one does not need to believe in God or follow religion to be wonderful, happy, caring, human being. What matters most is how we treat each other. But the refusal to even consider that a Creator may exist often accompanied by the adamant desire to “prove” otherwise and to ridicule those who do especially in the face of much blatant evidence, is an indication that a psychological mechanism is at work. Perhaps what is needed for such irrational position may not be more intellectual investigation, but psychoanalysis.
Global Earth Day highlights destruction of environment by this hotel made with waste collected from European beaches. In addition, recycled waste regenerates fuel from rubbish so the hotel points out damage to emphasize an overwhelming rate of superabundance. So highlighting huge tons of waste daily, environmental campaigners built this temporary hotel largely from rubbish in Italy’s capital Rome to raise awareness of European beach pollution. Save the Beach Hotel is taking guests for 4days only, adorned with debris from the world’s beaches. It had 5 rooms, reception lined with 12 tonnes of rubbish, including toys, cans, car exhaust pipes. Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, who has stayed at the hotel, said it was a striking work of art. “When inside the house, there are walls as would be in normal house but they are all made of inorganic waste,” Ms Christensen, also an environmental campaigner told the BBC.
outside is completely covered in everything thrown away at the beaches. You can basically go around that hotel to look at a lot of very personal objects so some makes you wonder what makes the human beings throw things away on the beach. The hotel, stands beside 2nd Century Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the Tiber, created by German artist HA Schult. We are in the trash time,” he was quoted as telling AFP news agency. “We produce trash and we will be trash. This hotel is the mirror of the situation. “We have to change the world, before world changes us.” Would be guests at the hotel will have to hurry to book a room as opened from 3-7 June, and bookings hard to come by on 5 June which marks World Environment Day. Another similar hotel is made entirely of rubbish opened Spanish capital Madrid.
Environmentalism needs to be taken very seriously as walls of BeachGarbage Hotel is covered with detritus deposited by tide in Europe and the waste found in dumps and some items bought at flea markets. There is a big gap between the rate of production and purchasing new items used once and discarded despite being in perfect condition. The idea of keeping anything to be reused by some people seems hoarding so minimalists prefer using item and get another again when the time arrives. The disposable instant generation grow with too much super abundance taken for granted. The impact affects outsourced regions that do not benefit from the huge profits of constantly changing products for thrill of novelty and boredom of resuse. Still many lack awareness of how long item takes from seed, growth, to processing stage of fabric knitting and weaving to garments, cost of transporting, whole sale storage, retail rent, maintenance in shops to buyer affects environmental carbon footprints reflected in weather changes. Advertising and irresponsible marketing, consumerism damage earth causing imbalance of carbon cycle and destroys natural habitat beauty. So acid rain falls with toxic chemicals on plants ruining crops, rivers hence the droughts and famines damaging earth. The desire to only use brand new things always is the cause of not reusing perfectly good items because after event thrown away.
Chart 1: Disruptive Technologies FastIntegrated Design as the example, cited by the academic leading commentator on the role of technology as disruptor Dr Tony Seba, story of telecommunications giant hiring consulting firm McKinsey in mid 1980’s forecast adoption of mobile phones for next 15 years. McKinsey’s prediction was 900,000 subscribers in 2000 but it was 109 million people using mobile phones. McKinsey underestimate by the range factor of 120. History shows some experts consistently do understand these exponential nature of disruptive technology impact. Investors continually identify the key technological changes to understand once it begins it accelerates very quickly. Identifying new trends is cornerstone of a process see opportunity current emerging group of disruptive technologies. Harnessing an Sun Energy efficiently, store in smart building smart trains smart cars from Sun energy.
A key emerging disruptive technology combines cost competitive Solar power and battery storage technology. Even if ignore carbon benefits of solar power in energy grid ability for homes generate enough power for own needs, for cost competitive and does not increase over 20 year time period is enticing prospect. Encouragingly, obstacles standing in way of goal increasingly disappearing, with cost of solar technology falls. Economics and realities of finite fossil fuel industry look increasingly less attractive as the production costs of renewables fall and economies of scale increase. Solar Costs plummeting mean cheap clean energy compared with the renewable sources.Another current limitation of the solar energy is intermittency; the sun shines during middle of day but we consume most of our power in the evenings and in the morning. The solution to problem may be around the corner in the form of improving battery technology. So home batteries could allow energy stored in day to use in evening. ‘Power Wall home battery charges electricity generated from solar panels day utility rate low power evening is disruptive technology potential revolutionises home energy usage. Portfolios invested in the number of firms benefit from changes to solar technology advance energy storage. So SunPower, specialist design manufacture energy saving environmental protection products like solar cells; Manz, supplies and services integrated production lines panel displays, thin film solar module lithium-ion batteries, IP Group portfolio CleanTech company CeresPower develop fuel cell technology.Figure Power WallSmart buildings are another disruptive technology that may well be at a tipping point is the network technology behind smart homes and buildings, which is emerging as next big potential change to everyday life. Just as smart phones took a semi-conductor chip and transformed our mobile phones into an intelligent hand held computer, semi-conductor chips integrated everyday appliances home refrigerators, air conditioning and office lighting transform the way energy used and cut costs for consumers and businesses alike. This technology allows air the conditioning systems to connect lighting system ensure harmoniously adjust to various different factors like a human occupancy and sunlight levels to ensure no energy is wasted. Meanwhile fridge will soon be able to connect home energy system to optimise when it draws power avoid peak energy cost. The Smart Buildings hightech electronic gadgets. So advanced is Zuckerberg’s AI Toaster in an interview with The Verge, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that he has a goal of making his entire home run on AI technology, including his toaster. So his pet project real challenge, he says, is making AI aware of when to actually make the toast. Once it effectively learns his exercise, meeting, and eating habits, it will know what time of the day he’s in need of some toasted bread. More and more people are multitasking through gadgets putting confidence in electronic technology. Life is becoming much more mechanised by a smart high technology implementing innovations so people can allocate time to other issues at hand. On the surface of it sounds great and useful to save time to do other things. However fascination with a modern sophisticated technology ambitious goal expectations of corporations affect environment. Constant desire and excitement to create a utopian ultimate lifestyle consumes an energy level by 1% few use 99% resources and 99% use 1% resources left shared. So disproportionate use of global resources among such few create the disadvantage of hardships. Excessive desire to acquire the most impressive and design items to signify status and wealth damages earth. Rate of material thing instantly disposed of correspond with amount of waste of perfectly functing gadgets thrown out causing landfill pollutions. Yet research continues to fastrack new designs daily.Portfolios of companies driving smart revolution or Acuity Brands in lighting and Daikin air conditioning technology semiconductors design controls, an Arm Holding pioneer widespread adapting a semiconductor in everyday appliances. Smart trains and smart cars are desired more and more so automobile industry is in the news recently. Volkswagen among others in industry trying coping with the challenges of disruptive technologies. So the irony is cars a disruptive technology themselves displaced the horse and cart. Industry adapts to increasingly stringent environmental standards demand for a smaller, more efficient vehicles. Cars of the future will be more like computer on wheels than complex mechanical motor, and technological advances here are moving very quickly. Again, leading the way proven electric cars makes better performance vehicles than those with traditional combustion engines at the same time as five times more efficient. Currently many value and invest in these companies enabling changes pioneered Linear Technology NXP semiconductors.Autonomous driving technology, which a few years ago considered science fiction, is rapidly evolving and the possibilities are very interesting. These ‘self driven’ cars will almost certainly use roads and infrastructure more efficiently, meaning fewer accidents and more time to work and relax rather than drive. These are technological advances happening so the traditional car manufacturer scrambling to adapt to changes. Cars made today are already increasing electronic software content significantly. 70% of the valued cars consist of software electronics with engine forming smaller component by traditional competitors, whose vehicles are typically around 30% software and electronics. This figure is moving up as a number of companies set to benefit from growing electronic content auto industry such as NXP, Infineon, Hella and Linear Technologies. These companies are key players in technology industry in areas as semi-conductor chips which process information in and around car. What is most interesting disruptive technologies interrelated. Electric vehicles become so popular, demand for solar technology increases, driving down costs. Advances in battery technology reduces costs for home batteries and electric vehicles, and feed into smart homes smart buildings. The cusp of revolutionary process built portfolios are set to benefit from change.

So Earth depends heavily in some parts on these sources natural electric energy survival. Ozone solar activity of high anomalies affect earth as Ultraviolet rays or lasers impact weather natural light colours, are causing change in some ways. So energy from Sun combines to generate heat on objects absorbing or deflecting energy. Notice climate change major concern gadgets inbuilt protection to avoid the burning radiation.

Individuals can learn to apply the mass psychology to understand the illicit world of finance operates to make profit. Understanding how financial world operates is key to understanding bankers create the wars, boom and bust cycle problems plaguing mankind. Accumulation consumerism contnues unabated if not checked time is running out for earth. It is unfortunate because material stuff does not improve quality of life and does not contribute essential happiness. Why destroy the natural earthly things if people happy for few days get another. Vicious cycle costs beautiful earth God Gave mankind. Incessant consumerism of the material possession to lose precious soul in hell? When nothing is taken out after death? Delusion of grandeur damages earth and conflict over natural resources. So Peace harmony traded garbage waste dumps is spreading fast. Natural energy resources like dams affect supply price shortage. That is reason our mission to bring this awareness to all as more important than ever to understand the times in relation to world events. With the help of friends like you, using communication medium available to speak the truth about God to rally salvation support to save mankind. The solar flares generated and directed to this planet are intended for the sole purpose of disrupting electrical devices and disabling power grids. The darkness satan brings upon planet inhabitants to cause literal darkness to deprive source of energy when the sun sets until it rises again. Targets complete communication system, power stations power houses, battery powered satellite failures, loss of power grids. Fighting over oil wells and nuclear power sources is latest combat attempts satan plans to use to keep his prized children under attack. Sweltering heat or drowning kills thousands. So the scorching Sun and flood policy continues damaging the earth and its population. Constant secret efforts to try to knock communication satellite satan’s latest chess move tries to affect the satellites unshielded in some categories. So those which remain in working order are used but increases costs. Individually targeted satellites and power sources are repaired or rebuilt cost taxpayer money could be used on other vital needs. Cost of living increasing faster rate than happiness promised from such intensive heavy duty material nation building. Pressure mounts on people world events get worse simultaneously but God saves.This is why a non communication will throw entire world of people into chaos panic mode. The source of information highway solely directed online maintain control and power to dominate thought process cause counter domino effect on world. Overwhelming constant sourced bulk information if not properly stored and if not handled effectively interrupts work. It is written in Revelation 16:8, 9 the 4th bowl poured out is bowl on Sun. God’s Wrath gives power to burn things or some people with fire and people were burned by intense heat. So Blasphemed the Name of God WHO HAS POWER over plagues if not repent to give God GLORY. Those without Seal of God have the mark of beast so destroyed. Scenes of screams emerge in hellish conditions going on as a result of Wrath of God happens during Great Tribulations period. God gradually reducing people to reveal what is ahead for all of mankind if they do not repent, seek God in Christ in Truth. The weather and other natural phenomena like insect problem worsen so note the news media reporters will puzzled at what’s coming upon this planet. They will do so by the looks upon their faces and comments they make in puzzlement of continuous terrors and plagues like those of ancient Egypt. The worst is still ahead in Great tribulation God Says all will perish if He Does not Shorten evil days. Eventually, entire planet will be made to know these events comes from Father’s anger. Jesus restores earth to perfect peace forever.
