The shame of the Russian Orthodox Church

Readers of this blog will know that we have no sympathy for organised religion. Now, the people can, of course, believe what they like but we hold that the priestly classes have throughout recorded history incited their acolytes to do dastardly deeds. Today, the Patriarch, Kirill, of the Russian Orthodox Church has asserted that the slaughter of the innocents, women, children, civilians constitutes a JUST war to recover the independent state of Ukraine for Putin's Russia. Is he mad? Has the man no shame? How can the mindless murder of people in Mariupal and other cities constitute a loving, caring will of God? How? 

We hear today that a coincidence of the Islamic culture of Ramadan and the Jewish festval of Passover has promoted widespread discord in Jerusalem with hundreds injured. 

When will this nonsense stop? It is a problem with the human condition that many believe what the priestly classes tell them about unproven, mystical and mythological figures. They do so to appease a natural fear of death and the aftermath relying on the fact that they cannot be denied by logical or scientific argument. But then they cannot prove the existence of deities by scripture and hearsay alone. Surely it is better that they suspend their rhetoric until they have undeniable proof in order to preserve life and stability in a dangerous world.

The DUMA. Collective name of cowards.

 Is the 'Duma' the collective name of a bunch of cowards?

It is clear that an end to the conflict in Ukraine will come from the death of Vladimir Putin, a paranoid psychopath who has Tsarist ambitions to restore the old Soviet Union. As more Russian women lose their sons and husbands on foreign soil the anger will rise, not only around the world, but also in Russia. But will their voices be heard in the toothless Russian Parliament, the collection of two hundred or so parliamentarians who nodded through Putin's plans, unchallenged. Who amongst them has the courage to speak out against this absurd military adventure? It will be dangerous; failure will result in certain death but someone has to stop this nonsense.

Putin's paranoia was there for all to see when he met his senior generals at either ends of a forty foot table. They said he was afraid of covid but more likely he was afraid of being apprehended at close quarters. I wouldn't be surprised if Putin's food is tested for poisons before he eats.

His threat of a nuclear option is the mark of a madman being forced into a corner. The Duma is being increasingly complicit in a nightmare they can and must challenge.

Russia's shame

 On the pretext of a non-existant threat, Vlad the Impaler II has launched an invasion of the Ukraine. In his determination to restore the Russian Empire he has put in jeopardy the security of all of Europe whatever the cost to the continent including the Russian people.

The man is clearly mad, probably a psychopath and likely to bring shame on the people of Russia. They will be isolated in the world, unable to trade with all except with China and North Korea, unable to compete in international sports, ignored on the world political stage.

I don't believe that the Russian people want this. I think they can see beyond the madness of their President. Only they and sane Generals can stop this and restore the honour of their Country. They know what they have to do.

Post mortem brain activity

 A report in sky news,

https://news.sky.com/story/life-flashing-before-our-eyes-study-records-brain-activity-in-a-mans-final-moments-12549232

reports that scientists have recorded brain activity in a man who had died from a heart attack. They suggest that the brain is showing a review of his life as it flashes before him. They had registered what are known as 'gamma' waves normally associated with dreaming. Could this be evidence of the proof of my hypothesis concerning the multi-dimensional nature of time?

In my you tube talk, part of a series explaining the DAVIES HYPOTHESIS: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iufB2fxjJY

I suggest that the brain functions after clinical death as the 'imaginary' time function continues, via dreams, to prepare the body for full and complete death. It fills the mind with images, typically of tunnels of white light, gardens, Jesus etc as told by those who have undergone a 'near-death experience'. 

The 'imaginary' time function is one of the three dimensions of time that give rise to consciousness in brains. for details please go to the video above or my inexpensive booklet: 'SPIRITUAL MAN: AN INTRODUCTION TO NEGATIVE DIMENSIONS

Ukranian neutrality

 The West insist that the Ukraine, as a sovereign nation, should be able to decide whether or not to turn to the west and NATO or to the east and Russia. This impasse has led to Putin's Russia massing troops on the Ukranian border and threatening war.

But has anyone thought that maybe there is a solution if the Ukraine declares itself, Switzerland like, as a neutral Nation?

There will be conditions but they carry the benefits of having reduced military costs, useful in a country with an emerging economy. 

Just a thought.

Tsar Putin revisited

 It is over seven years since Tsar Putin annexed the Crimea. See:

https://www.kevilldavies.com/2014/03/ukraine-some-thoughts.html

Not much has changed. He still wants to restore the old Russian empire with him acknowledged as the Tsar.

I have a sneaking feeling that the rumour is true; that he will indulge Xi Jinping's request that he holds his forces back until after the Chinese Winter Olympics and to coincide with the Chinese leader's move on Taiwan exposing the US to trouble on two fronts. Putin too sees the opportunity as the Europeans, weakened by covid and disastrously high energy costs will baulk at helping a Country, Ukraine, not within the NATO umbrella.

We live in very dangerous times, requiring strong leadership. UK politicians should remember the old adage: when in a rowing boat full of armless men, do not throw overboard the man with two arms.

Road to ruin 2?

 Prince Harry is set to sue the UK government and therefore the British taxpayers after his expensive security detail was withdrawn following his decision to live in the United States and withdraw from Royal duties.

To my mind it is inconceivable that the Prince, aware of the importance of the institution of Monarchy and the part he plays would begin such proceedings, knowing the hurt he would cause to his grandmother, the Queen. It follows that the move stems from his American (and therefore litiginous minded) wife, the Duchess of Sussex. Indeed, one can trace the decline in affection for the once much loved Prince to his marriage to the American actress.

Road to ruin?

 The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is facing calls to resign. At the time of his landslide election two years ago this would have been unthinkable so what has gone wrong.

I'll tell you what has gone wrong; he has dismissed his adviser Dominic Cummins and married Caroline Symonds. All his woes seem to stem from this time about two years ago.

Road to Anarchy

 A jury has cleared four defendants of criminal damage despite clear video evidence that they were involved in the destuction of the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol. Rather than be judged in a Magistrates Court, the four, no doubt advised by lawyers, opted for trial by jury. A magistrate looking at the evidence would have no doubt of the guilt but a jury of townspeople might see things differently, conflating one sort of justice with another. In the event, the jurors chose to make the case one of the people versus Colston, an acknowledged trader in slaves. That they found the four not guilty of criminal damage suggests that they sympathised with the defendants position and found Colston guilty as not charged.

Doesn't this demonstrate the stupidity of the British Justice system. As long ago as 2012 this blog has railed against the 'presumption of innocence' rules. see:

https://www.kevilldavies.com/2012/10/assumption-of-innocence.html

With such overwhelming evidence, I suggest that, in the interests of the people, the defendants should not be allowed to register a 'not guilty' plea without good reason.

Since the result the Attorney General is contemplating referring the case to the Supreme Court for clarification as clearly it could set a precedent for future trials where people damage images they, personally, don't approve of. A Muslim, for example, could plead 'not guilty', for smashing Christian images and icons on the grounds that they were an affront to Islam and therefore to him. This case demonstrates that the Justice system is leading the Country down the road to anarchy.

A terrible thought

 I've just had a terrible thought following on from my last article. Under what circumstances, if any, would Her Majesty the Queen award an honour to a person deemed unsuitable by  a huge number of the general public, a person widely considered to have lied in public office and sent dozens of men to their deaths in an illegal war with Iraq?

What if this person, a member of the Privy Council, could suggest that he or she might be able to make Her Majesty's greatest worries, her beleaguered son, say, disappear? In such cicumstances, might there be an expectation of a show of appreciation?

No! It couldn't happen as Her Majesty views her duty to the people of the United Kingdom as sacrosanct. Duty before family, but in another world, another ruler, this might not be the case. Or am I just a cynic?
