God and Allah are one' when passion of humans are to be curtailed. When the twin earthquakes struck mountainous north-western Iran, one of them measuring magnitude 6.4, struck the sparsely populated region around Ahar and more than 180 people were reported killed and 1,300 injured the response of clergy was sickening. Evangelist Pat Robertson and Ayatollah Saeedi of Tabriz with Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi are eccentric and weird bedfellows, combined in a fanatic passion to curb human sexual inclinations. All claim to derive their powers from God/Allah. No amount of moral/ religious legislation can change the problems of men, they need to discover themselves and act as a gentlemen this is the best 'we' can do. Liberty for all is a goal we all cherish.
I have been reading some intriguing and fascinating reports from 'devout' men calling Earthquakes as fury of 'Gods or Allah' on mankind. Reverend Pat Robertson said the earthquake in Haiti was caused because the Haitians made a pact with the Devil and Napoleon. Ayatollah Saeedi and Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi pronounced these natural recurring disasters as wrath of Gods or earth mechnasim was 'regulated' by the Zionists. Ayatollah Saeedi believes that women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society that increases earthquakes.
Man is fearful of rage of Gods; this fear of providence is exploited by clergy and is not something new. After the 1755 Lisbon earthquake killed 60,000, “Priests roved around the ruins, selecting at random those they believed guilty of heresy and thus to blame for annoying the Divine, who had then ordered up the disaster. The priests had them hanged on the spot.” The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in what is now Indonesia fuelled the growth of an extremist strain of Islam, bent on purging society of impurities displeasing to God.
These are/were no boobquakes; these are 'Ring of Fires' playing their settling role. Hojjat ol-eslam Sediqi, may wish to know that we are prisoners of our birth. The tectonic plate movements are happening; shall happen and these phenomenon are geological where 'Gods' after creating us are now resting to see how their works are cooling down. The hands of Gods are tied now, the internal forces of the earth crust have taken over. The Pacific Ring of Fire is home to 452 volcanoes in total — that's 75 percent of the world's active and dormant volcanoes. Earthquakes along that fault can affect the rest of the world.
Why should women's body without a veil should become the arena of interest where Sheikhs, Imams and Hajot-ul-Islams accentuate utmost interest? It is because of PERVERSION IN THEOCRACY is rampant. Authority and identity of all Abrahamic religions is centered around over-obsession with sex. Undoubtedly zar, zamin,zan remain the heart of most of the major conflicts between men but allure and fascination with sex and death have consumed man from the beginning of times, those of us who accept this defencelessness are better than others who hide their pre-occupation behind walls of Godly injunctions. It all started with the biblical myth of ‘Eve’ as the foundation of all temptations in Abrahamic faiths. Clergy realizes that incorporating venomous, lethal guilt and poisoned thoughts about ‘sex’ is the shortest way to manage the internal affairs of man eternally.
Earthquakes are caused by movement of the Earth's tectonic plates and how much of a 'cleavage of a women' is seen plays a very little role. It is estimated that around 500,000 earthquakes occur each year, detectable with current instrumentation. About 100,000 of these can be felt. Minor earthquakes occur nearly constantly around the world in places like California and Alaska in the U.S., as well as in Guatemala, Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, the Azores in Portugal, Turkey, New Zealand, Greece, Italy, and Japan, but earthquakes can occur almost anywhere, including New York City, London, and Australia. No one is out to punish us. We live in a very benevolent environment. The laws of nature are secular and uniform. Understanding the phenomena that lead to disasters can help us relax. Interpreting the disasters in the wrong way can make us lose hope. And without hope one cannot build a future.
The total control of rituals of birth, sex and death are hallmarks of all religious society. Suppression of sex, abortion, abolition of contraception, denial of gay lesbian rights, limitation on stem-cell research are tools of modern day clergy in which Ayatollahs, Imams and Pope are partners in transgression of basis human rights, HIV/Aids kill two million die a year but condoms are prohibited for poor mothers. Suppression of women and her beauty is the key through which clergy hold down the 'importance of sex' as key element of human anticipated emotional behavior. Bastardisation of beauty and sex as devilish thoughts have destroyed the innate beauty inherent in the act of sex. Masculitnty and femininity of humankind is dictated by the natural instincts, yet clergy has over legislated on these relationships and taken control of natural flow of feminine inclinations to make them subservient to men demands.
One time putting them in veil and others making them weak; these fatwa’s are aimed at relegation of woman who has contracted a continuing marriage to a status of sexual slave; she must remain at his disposal for the fulfilment of any one of his desires, and may not refuse herself to him; it is all part of vicious control that religion allows. Women Saudi bloggers reflect the frustration of battling against an extremist male ideology that oppresses women by manipulating and twisting religious rhetoric to facilitate them in every possible way to serve men’s’ pleasures.
The interest below naval cavity of women is beyond any doubt very well documented. Christianity lost its control over women with movement of emancipation and renaissance that freed women from clutches of clerical orthodoxy but unfortunately so far Middle East remains inundated with perverted thoughts; the greatest of the Mullahs have shown great inclination to write comprehensively on the theme. As true vicitms of 'ideology' Iran had a face off with 'Cultish Khomeinism' on the day that he appointed interim prime minister on February 4, 1979 he clearly explained Islamic absolutism by stating:
Through the guardianship [Velayat] that I have from the holy lawgiver [the Prophet], I hereby pronounce Bazargan as the Ruler, and since I have appointed him, he must be obeyed. The nation must obey him. This is not an ordinary government. It is a government based on the sharia. Opposing this government means opposing the sharia of Islam ... Revolt against God's government is a revolt against God. Revolt against God is blasphemy.
Cultish Khomeinism in Iran today one example of governing cradle of mankind by 'force and fraud,' it is a plunder and 'Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.' Ayatollah Saeedi and Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi statements are just extension of rampant self-righteousness of thought process within the society licensed by the power of Velayat .
Every bad omen is thrashed on the door of women conduct. Women becomes an object of sex, derision and ridicule. Even Saudi Sheiks have produced a number of fatwa’s allowing men to enjoy different types of sexual relationships ‘marriages’ seen by the majority of women as allowing men to take advantage of women by denying them the rights of married women according to Islamic Sharea’h. Tahrirolvasyleh is an Iranicised version of its Arabic title 'Tahrir al Wasilah', Khomeini's on fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence). It comes in two volumes and was written by Imam Khomeini whilst he was in Turkey. The 'literary masterpiece of perverted minds' can be download from Tahrir.zip
When a mind is devoid of logic and reason and science, its only refuge is religion. For Ayatollah Saeedi and Hojjat ol-eslam Sediqi ''There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam's moral codes." Iranian mullahs think that women should stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves and the world from being buried under the rubble. Modesty will probably ensure that earth’s tectonic movements will stop. Mr Sediqi delivered a televised sermon at the Tehran University campus mosque on the need for a "general repentance" by Iranians when he warned of a "prevalence of degeneracy". In his view the earth reawakens from slumber when women wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously and this reawakening of earth causes big earthquakes. Tens of thousands of people have died in Iran earthquakes in the last decade. Global plate tectonic movement cause Earthquakes not degeneracy of morals.
I think 'Religion' has been rightly called the opium of masses by Marx. Unquestionably, religious-based prejudices have led to disintegration and division of man over our short conscious history.
The Indian Ocean earthquake on December 26, 2004, generated a tsunami that killed approximately 275,000 people, making it one of the deadliest disasters in modern history. Earthquakes typically happen along faults, which are breaks in the rocky plates of the Earth's crust. These faults build up strain over the years as two plates butt heads.
The ever-increasing connectivity has turned our planet into a huge ‘neighbourhood’. It has been just more than a century since we were able to conquer distance. The last two decades have been all about global togetherness in terrestrial space; our ‘village’ has shaped up so fast that our minds are unable to cope with its new realities. Pleasures and pains of the entire world have become our own. We tend to learn about disasters and their gory details far more minutely than we did ever before. Human race has to find answers to disasters; in the dinky little existence of over 10,000 years of known history we have discovered one thing that is the most important, i.e., that we are just at the cusp of a major bout of new knowledge, yet this realisation has given us tools of not being shocked by anything. All this mass epidemic news is exaggerated response of a very hypochondriac cynical mankind. It appears as if we have become a sickening collection of killjoys.
The Universe is complex, so why should we dumb down our conversations. We live in a world of staggering complexity, a world poised at a dangerous turning point with science and technology living at the root of both our problems and our possibilities. And yet, in this poised world and at this critical moment, our leaders speak to us as if we were minors.
Mankind will go from strength to strength; our survival is a story of victory over adversary. Conceivably there are so many anxieties if you really want to add one more bad news in addition to viruses and bombs, here’s the bad news. According to the calculations, the Solar System will be passing through the galactic plane in the near future, and should see an increased risk of impact. Our risk of impact could increase 10-fold. In fact, one of these high points of comet activity would have been 65 million years - the same time that an asteroid strike wiped out the dinosaurs.
Some can argue that exaggeration is a process that expedites healing and action ('When the fire department puts out your house do you claim that since it is out the house would have never burnt down in the first place?') Preparation is important but to embellish our inability to respond to ruin does not help. Life is about moderation and measured appropriate timely response to effective threats without blowing or killing ourselves up with nameless fears. Ayatollah Saeedi should know well thathe Earthquakes and natural disasters have no co relationship with how Iranian women are dressing up or Zionist are not moving tectonic earth plates; let the women look pleasant and appealing and let all people live peacefuly with each other. 'Allah and all the Gods' are quite happy the way world is progressing along on the path of becoming one global village, dont cast your evil spell on progress of mankind, these earthquakes and natural disasters are part of our tests and tribulations, sad and tragic but we shall survive.
