THE RELIGIOUS ORDER "THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR"


YOU  MAY  HAVE  HEARD  OF  THE  HISTORIC  "KNIGHTS  TEMPLAR"  -  A  GROUP  THAT  WERE  NOT  ONLY  RICH,  HAD  CASTLES,  BUT  THEY  WERE  A  LITERAL  FIGHTING   FORCE.....SUPPOSEDLY  TO  DEFEND  THE  CHRISTIAN  RIGHT  IN  THE  HOLY  LAND.

I'M  UPLOADING  A  BOOK  ON  THEM;  GIVING  THE  HISTORICAL  FACTS.

IT'S  ON  MY  HISTORY  PAGE  ON  MY  WEBSITE.

BUT  YOU  HAVE  TO  ASK  YOURSELF,  WOULD  JESUS,  WOULD  THE  APOSTLES,  ORGANIZE  SUCH  A  FIGHTING  FORCE?  MEN  WITH  HORSES  AND  ARMS  TO  CHARGE  AND  FIGHT  PHYSICAL  BATTLES.  DOING  IT  ALL  IN  THE  NAME  OF  "CHRIST"  AND  CHRISTIANITY  AGAINST ISLAMIC  HORDES  OR  OTHER  ENEMIES  OF  A  ROMAN  CHRISTIANITY,  AND  TO  PROTECT  CITIES  LIKE  JERUSALEM  -  THE  WELL  KNOWN  "CRUSADER  WARS."  

IT'S  JUST  VERY  HARD  FOR  ME  TO  ACQUAINT   JESUS  AND  HIS  DISCIPLES  LIVING  BY  THE  SWORD.

I  SEE  NO  TEACHING  IN  THE  NEW  TESTAMENT  FOR  CHRISTIANS  TO  FORM  SAINTS  IN  ARMOR  AND  SWORD  TO  DEFEND  THE  CHRISTIAN  FAITH.

WHAT  HAS  BEEN  DONE  IN  THE  NAME  OF  CHRIST  OVER  THE  CENTURIES,  JUST  HAS  TO  MAKE  YOU  WONDER  IF  THEY  WERE  TRULY  READING  THE  NEW  TESTAMENT.  TO  ME  IT'S  LIKE  THE  CONTRADICTION  OF  THE  ONCE  WARS  OF  IRISH  CATHOLICS  AND  PROTESTANTS,  NOT  SO  FAR  BACK  IN  OUR  MODERN  TIMES.

WELL  THE  HISTORY  OF  "THE  KNIGHTS  TEMPLAR"  IS  INTERESTING,  THOUGH  SURROUNDED  BY  MANY  THINGS  I  HAVE  TO  CONSIDER  UN-CHRISTIAN,  EVEN  TO  HOW  THEY  CAME  TO  AN  END.

READ  FROM  MATTHEW  TO  REVELATION  AND  SEE  IF  CHRISTIANS  CAN  IN  THE  NAME  OF  CHRIST,  FORM  ARMIES  TO  LITERALLY  GO  OUT  AND  LITERALLY  FIGHT  AND  KILL,  THOSE  OPPOSED  TO  JESUS  AND  CHRISTIANITY.

SAD  TO  SAY  BUT  CHRISTIANITY  HAS  HAD  ITS  FANATICS  OF  VIOLENCE  AND  KILLING,  AS  THE  ISLAMIC  WORLD  HAS  AND  STILL  HAS.

SOMETHING  TO MEDITATED  ON.  HISTORY  IS  NOT  PLEASANT  TO  ACKNOWLEDGE  EVEN  CLOAKED  IN  THE  WORD  "CHRISTIANITY."

BEE DEPLETION ANSWER....A SHOCK !!

SOME  TIME  BACK  I  REPORTED  ON  A  DVD  I  BOUGHT,  ABOUT  THE  SERIOUS  CONCERN  OF  THE  DESTRUCTION  OF  THE  BEES..... A  MAJOR  IMPORTANT  FACT  FOR  POLLINATION,  AS  40  PERCENT  OF  OUR  FOODS  COME  FROM  POLLINATION [SOME  OTHER  INSECTS  POLLINATE  BESIDES  THE  BEES].

TODAY  ON  A  CANADIAN  SCIENCE  RADIO  PROGRAM  THE  ANSWER  TO  IT  ALL  WAS  GIVEN.

THEY  WERE  INTERVIEWING  A  LADY  SCIENTIST  FROM  ENGLAND.

WHAT  THEY  DID  OVER  THERE  WAS  TO  HAVE  POLLEN  WITH  SUGAR  ADDED;  AND  ALSO  POLLEN  WITH  SUGAR  BUT  ALSO  BATCHES  OF  THREE  WITH  THE  POPULAR  PESTICIDES  USED  IN  MODERN  FARMING.

IT  WAS  CONDUCTED  ON  THE  RATIO  THAT  WOULD  BE  OUT  IN  THE  FIELDS.

THEY  HAVE  ALSO  DISCOVERED  BEES  DO  NOT  HAVE  THE  TASTE  BUDS  WE  HUMANS  HAVE;  SO  TASTE  IS  NOT  IN  THE  EQUATION.

WHAT  THEY  FOUND  SHOCKED  THEM !

THEY  EXPECTED  THE  BEES  WOULD  GO  FOR  JUST  THE  POLLEN  WITH  SUGAR  --  THE  OPPOSITE  WAS  TRUE!

THEY  WENT  FOR  THE  POLLEN  WITH  SUGAR  AND  THE  PESTICIDES  !!

ALL  THEY  CAN  FIGURE  AT  PRESENT  IS  THE  BEES  GET  SOME  "HIGH"  LIKE  GETTING  ADDICTED  TO  CIGARETS  OR  COCAINE.

IT  GIVES  THEM  SOME  MENTAL  "BUZZ"  [PUN  NOT  INTENDED].....

SOME  BUMBLE-BEES  WOULD  DO  NO  WORK,  JUST  LAY  ON  THEIR  BACK,  LIKE  "BRING  IT  ON  JUST  LOVE  THE  TRIP."

THE  ENGLISH  SCIENTIST  SAID  THEY  HAVE  MOST  DEFINITELY  PROVED  HUMAN  PESTICIDES  ARE  INDEED  THE  CAUSE  OF  THE  DEPOPULATION  OF  THE  BEES!!

WHAT  DID  SHE  SAY  COULD  BE  DONE,  MUST  BE  DONE..... WE  HAVE  THE  SCIENCE  TO  DEVELOP  PESTICIDES  THAT  WILL  TARGET  THE  BAD  GUYS  THAT  DAMAGE  THE  CROP,  BUT  LEAVE  THE  BEES  FREE  AND  HEALTHY.

OF  COURSE  THE  SCIENTISTS  ARE  IN  NO  WAY  GOING  TO  COME  OUT  AND  SAY  ALL  PESTICIDES  SHOULD  BE  BANNED.

SO  NOW  WE  KNOW  FOR  SURE  WHAT  THE  PROBLEM  HAS  BEEN..... SILLY  HUMAN  ERROR  FOR  THE  GREEN-BACK  DOLLAR!

Nepal earthquake: Death toll climbs to over 3,200

The cawing of crows mixed with terrified screams as the magnitude 6.7 aftershock pummeled the capital city early Sunday afternoon. It came as planeloads of supplies, doctors and relief workers from neighbouring countries began arriving in this poor Himalayan nation.

KATHMANDU, NEPAL—The death toll from Nepal's earthquake rose to 3,218 on Monday, two days after the massive trembler ripped across this Himalayan nation, leaving tens of thousands shell-shocked and sleeping in streets.
Aid groups received the first word from remote mountain villages — reports that suggested many communities perched on mountainsides were devastated or struggling to cope.
Landslides hindered rescue teams that tried to use mountain trails to reach those in need, said Prakash Subedi, chief district official in the Gorkha region, where the quake was centred.
"Villages like this are routinely affected by landslides, and it's not uncommon for entire villages of 200, 300, up to 1,000 people to be completely buried by rock falls," said Matt Darvas, a member of the aid group World Vision. "It will likely be helicopter access only."

Saturday's magnitude 7.8 earthquake spread horror from Kathmandu to small villages and to the slopes of Mount Everest, triggering an avalanche that buried part of the base camp packed with foreign climbers preparing to make their summit attempts. At least 18 people died there and 61 were injured.
In Nepal, the Home Ministry said the toll had risen is 2,789, and ministry official Laxmi Dhakal said that besides rescue efforts the government was focusing on distributing relief materials. Another 61 people died from the quake in India and a few in other neighbouring countries.
Aid workers also warned that the situation could be far worse near the epicenter. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered near Lamjung, about 80 kilometres northwest of Kathmandu.

Kathmandu district chief administrator Ek Narayan Aryal said tents and water were being handed out Monday at 10 locations in Kathmandu, but that aftershocks were leaving everyone jittery.
"There have been nearly 100 earthquakes and aftershocks, which is making rescue work difficult. Even the rescuers are scared and running because of them," he said.
Tens of thousands spent the night sleeping in parks or on a golf course. Others camped in open squares lined by cracked buildings and piles of rubble.
"We don't feel safe at all. There have been so many aftershocks. It doesn't stop," said Rajendra Dhungana, 34, who spent the day with his niece's family for her cremation at the Pashuputi Nath Temple in Kathmandu. "I've watched hundreds of bodies burn."
The capital city is largely a collection of small, poorly constructed brick apartment buildings. But outside of the oldest neighbourhoods, many in Kathmandu were surprised by how few modern structures collapsed in the quake.
The earthquake centred outside Kathmandu, the capital, was the worst to hit the South Asian nation in more than 80 years. It destroyed swaths of the oldest neighbourhoods of Kathmandu, and was strong enough to be felt all across parts of India, Bangladesh, China’s region of Tibet and Pakistan.
Nepal's worst recorded earthquake in 1934 measured 8.0 and all but destroyed the cities of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan.

Rescuers aided by international teams spent Sunday digging through rubble of buildings — concrete slabs, bricks, iron beams, wood — to look for survivors. Because the air was filled with chalky concrete dust, many people wore breathing masks or held shawls over their faces.
Hundreds of people in Kathmandu's western Kalanki neighbourhood nervously watched the slow progress of a single backhoe digging into the rubble of the collapsed Lumbini Guest House, once a three-story budget hotel.
Most areas were without power and water. The United Nations said hospitals in the Kathmandu Valley were overcrowded, and running out of emergency supplies and space to store corpses.
Plumes of smoke, meanwhile, rose above the capital as friends, relatives and others gathered by the river to quickly cremate loved ones’ remains.
Most shops in Kathmandu were shut; only fruit vendors and pharmacies seemed to be doing business.

“More people are coming now,” fruit seller Shyam Jaiswal said. “They cannot cook so they need to buy something they can eat raw.”
Jaiswal said stocks were running out, and more shipments were not expected for at least a week, but added, “We are not raising prices. That would be illegal, immoral profit.”
The quake will likely put a huge strain on the resources of this impoverished country best known for Everest, the highest mountain in the world. The economy of Nepal, a nation of 27.8 million people, relies heavily on tourism, principally trekking and Himalayan mountain climbing.
The first nations to respond were Nepal's neighbours — India, China and Pakistan, all of which have been jockeying for influence over the landlocked nation. Nepal remains closest to India, with which it shares deep political, cultural and religious ties.
Other countries sending support Sunday included the United States, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Britain, Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Israel and Singapore.
An American military plane left Delaware's Dover Air Force Base for Nepal, carrying 70 people, including a disaster-assistance response team and an urban search-and-rescue team, and 45 tons of cargo, the Pentagon said.
