Anton van Leeuwenhoek discovered microorganisms in 1675, using a microscope. Before his discovery such ideas were consider to be crazy and sometimes even blasphemy. With the invention of the microscope we've opened new doors to our world giving a clearer picture to the true nature of our complexity that had not been visible prior
Welcome to the 21 century, the century for unimaginable opportunity, with the possibility to become pioneers of the new frontier, SPACE. The time to merge science and magic is now upon us if we intend to live up to the expectations of our forefathers.
From the beginning we've known that something is a miss, from the beginning we've been force fed the idea of being worthless, no good, told the natural occurrences in your though processes to be wicked and unclean. That acting out such desire would lead to condemnation of the soul for eternity. Then, in the same breath were told, not to worry, God loves us and, nothing last forever.
Nether of these Ideas belong to me and I refuse to cast them anylonger. Sorry El, but I will spell me own future.
In the Greek mythos we find more than just threats, Aristophanes's Speech plainly illustrates the crime committed and why.
"Now the sexes were three, and such as I have described them; because the sun, moon, and earth are three; and the man was originally the child of the sun, the woman of the earth, and the man-woman of the moon, which is made up of sun and earth, and they were all round and moved round and round because they resembled their parents. Terrible was their might and strength, and the thoughts of their hearts were great, and they made an attack upon the gods; of them is told the tale of Otys and Ephialtes who, as Homer says, attempted to scale heaven, and would have laid hands upon the gods.
Doubt reigned in the celestial councils. Should they kill them and annihilate the race with thunderbolts, as they had done the giants, then there would be an end of the sacrifices and worship which men offered to them; but, on the other hand, the gods could not suffer their insolence to be unrestrained. At last, after a good deal of reflection, Zeus discovered a way.
He said: 'Methinks I have a plan which will enfeeble their strength and so extinguish their turbulence; men shall continue to exist, but I will cut them in two and then they will be diminished in strength and increased in numbers; this will have the advantage of making them more profitable to us. They shall walk upright on two legs, and if they continue insolent and will not be quiet, I will split them again and they shall hop about on a single leg.'
I guess we should prepare for the second part of his treat "and if they continue insolent and will not be quiet, I will split them again and they shall hop about on a single leg."
Is this not spiteful
The crime wasn't just recorded in the Greeks mythos, you don't have to cross the Atlantic to find out the Gods have always been our enemy, just quickly revisit the story on the TOWER OF BABEL.
"According to the biblical account, a united humanity of the generations following the Great Flood, speaking a single language and migrating from the east, came to the land of Shinar, where they resolved to build a city with a tower "with its top in the heavens...lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth." God came down to see what they did and said: "They are one people and have one language, and nothing will be withholden from them which they purpose to do." So God said, "Come, let us go down and confound their speech." And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city, which was called Babel "because God there confounded the language of all the Earth.
