Shalom Geraldo Rivera:
While watching your FoxNews show this weekend, you and your guests were amused when you portrayed many religious leaders as kooks, because they blamed catastrophic events on Acts of God. And while they are not exactly right, neither are they exactly wrong -- and if you understood the Laws that move all events in this world, then you would perhaps understand the wisdom in what they are attempting to state.
Quoting my article on my opposition to the New York Seat Belt Law: When science makes a discovery that proves many of man's previous ideas in error, how long does it take before he is able to cast away his previous ignorance -- let go of the anchor of the past -- and move onward to a new and more enlightened horizon? Do we continue to promote superstition and folklore, because many people are comforted by the thinking of the past? If science discovers a means to teletransport people from one city to the next, do we continue to use cars, trains and airplanes because that is what we have done for a long time? While on the surface this issue may appear to be about seatbelts, but that opinion is only embraced by the uninformed. And if science was to break the code of molecular decomposition that would be necessary to instantly teleport a person from one city to the next, would there be a stumbling block in our courts because the molecules would be exceeding the speed limit of our interstate highway system? This is the nature of the question that has been set before our courts today.
As presented throughout the article, there is no such thing as an accident -- and every event that transpires in this realm, has a pre-existent cause -- and while this fact which has been attested to by religious visionaries and proven by modern Quantum Physicists, our cultural mainstream remains totally ignorant of the facts. Instead of learning to train the mind to anticipate the events that are brought about by the Laws, they are busy peddling snake oil solutions to disasters which their own blindness permitted to befall those who put blind faith in their judgments. That is not to say that the faith-based ramblings of many religious doomsday prophets is correct in the cause they are proclaiming, but neither are they completely wrong. In looking at the catastrophic events from their doctrinal perspective, they tend to see a very lopsided picture. Only when they come to understand why the Laws wreck havoc in the lives of the people who they would portray as good, would they be able to begin to put forth a more enlightened picture of man's reality. But like a broken clock that is right at least two times a day, they are not entirely wrong -- and those who laugh at their rantings, are often the more gullable victims of what they don't understand.
Take for example my opposition to the Seat Belt Laws ( http://Ebionite.com/seatbelt.htm
). At first glance, the uninformed naive reader (religious and unbeliever) would immediately conclude that such a concept as a religious objection would be utter lunacy. When in realty, it is their own blindness to the Laws that bring all events into man's existence -- Laws that are witnessed to by spiritual visionaries, and attested to by modern science -- that the critics are totally ignorant of. And a truly insightful person would realize that what is presented from a seatbelt perspective, is merely an example of the grave flaw in our cultural thinking that caused William A. Tiller, Materials Sciences Department, Stanford University to write: “The present scientific establishment has grown somewhat fossilized by its current world picture and is locked into a view of reality that has outlived its usefulness. It has begun to limit mankind’s growth and has so increased its sense of specialization, separateness, materiality, and mechanical computer-like functioning that it is in real danger of self-extermination”.
So while the issue of the seatbelt will not in and of itself lead us down the path of a "...real danger of self-extermination”
, it is a tell tale sign of an underlying cultural mindset disease that if ignored, will bring about our own hardships and in some cases, our demise. Like a symptom that a doctor relies upon to diagnose a greater life-threatening disease, the seatbelt mentality is an indicator of our own inability to understand the Laws that control every aspect of the lives that we live. So the real question then becomes: how long do we play the ostrich that attempts to hide their heads in the narrow confines of our cultural mindset, while ignoring the ever looming threat that our ignorance has brought upon us?
