I absolutely love the message in this, it's universal! It crosses all borders and speaks to the enlightened part of our individual selves. I believe that those whom choose to live outside the illusion, those whom want to make a difference are the best of us. I think that what you've done here with earthscriptures is a great way of sharing the truth's of our world. To share our collective experience.

For a while, yeah. But then the government banned all schools from teaching it, especially Greek philosophy. The reason: Greek philosophy promotes Christianity! This was during the mid nineties, when I was in school.
A lot has changed now, but they still censor textbooks that makes even as much as passing reference about Hinduism or Hindu Deities, for fear that the images of "busty, semi-clad, female demons (Hindu Goddess) will corrupt young minds (especially boys) into rejecting Islam and entice them into following Hinduism."
Yeah, that's what an Islamic studies teacher at my son's school told me the other day.
Funny thing was that she actually believed it!!!

Sorry but "Greek philosophy promotes Christianity"? Hahahaha.... yeah, right!
First of all... the arise of Greek philosophy was about 6th century BC until 3rd BC.
Another good point is that the Christians burn and ruin every ancient temples and monuments ;)
For their love to the philosophers.
A company of stupids who ruined one of the greatest cultures of the world in the name of god.
Pfff... anyway...

Naaaaaaah! I'm sure you know all those kind of stuff my friend.
It was just an explosion 'cause I'm really bored and tired.
Every side is telling the history as they like... all the time lies and lies... and only a few people are interested to learn the truth.
Anyway...

I hope that these explosions of yours are contagious, because the sooner more people get infected by it, the better! :lol:
This world would be a nicer, more truthful place to live in.

The biggest problem with all religions is just that: Religion!
Throw in some Politics, and BAM! A match made in heaven! :XD:
