Slavery, 'Colon'- ization & the fall of ethical family structureWritten by Robert Bruce Baird
Catalan is not far from Rennes le Chateau. It is near to certain that Columbus’ family were important Catalan ship owners or Admirals for millennia when Tartessus/Iberian corporate Empire existed. Even Britannica admits he is Jewish which would indicate Cathar development was part of this family’s involvement. There should be much more research done into Huguenot involvement of this family leading to other Merovingians in later eras like John Jacob Astor. The Lafittes also had to flee Spain during one of programs to get Jewish people’s assets. But remember that none of these people are very exact about who or what a Jew is other than a religious cult that practices esoteric rituals which they also practice in their inner sanctums.
Slavery was big business and it is debatable whether things were any better than days when Greece used up so many lives in their mining operations that Joseph of Arimathaea duplicated for Rome. I have great respect for Cathar ecumenicism, women priests, free education, free medicine and other ways or means to give people insight to their human purpose and soul. But there are elements of The Halakah and other rituals of Judaism which are not in line with what my sensibilities tell me is right for management of society. But that kind of thinking would allow Joseph of Arimathaea to operate Roman slave mines wouldn’t it?
One of these rationales is ability to visualize a hierarchy of human rights that allows existence of slavery or servitude in any form, such as still existent 19th Century Scale of Nature. Early in his life even well-educated Thomas Jefferson thought black people came about due to some white man mating with an orangutan. But clearly Cathars were better than all other Old World Nations. The same can be said of Jews and their treatment of their women to some degree. Yes, women were made chattel and slaves or servants to hierarchy of men in Europe and Asia. It allowed little men to feel powerful even though their leaders and Nobles could come by and screw their daughters and priests had ample supply of Scarlet Women and ‘bastards’ to abuse due to break up of extended family which had protected children in Keltic times. It was still going on in Ireland during last decade of 20th Century as forced labor with illegitimates and their mothers were providing laundry cleaning in prisons or what could be called concentration camps.
Chinese Zodiac SignsWritten by Bo Guo
Each Chinese New Year begins on day of first new moon. In western year 2005, new moon began on February 9. It was Chinese year 4702. In actuality, most Chinese began using western, or solar, calendar in early twentieth century, except on important holidays. Many of calendars in China show both solar dates of western calendar and lunar dates of Chinese calendar. Chinese astrology is based on twelve cycles of moon.
The Chinese zodiac consists of twelve animals, rather than solar signs used in west. In Chinese calendar each period lasts for a full cycle of moon, from new to full. There are twelve complete lunar cycles in a Chinese zodiac year, but one animal symbolizes entire year. According to their calendar, Chinese complete a cycle every twelve years. So if you were born in year of rat, you would celebrate your zodiac birthday every twelve years, and your Chinese zodiac sign would be rat. In west your astrological sign appears once each year.
The calendar and its animals were created from an ancient legend. It tells us that animals were all fighting about who was going to be in prime (first) position on Chinese calendar. The gods devised a test in which animals would compete for their position by swimming across a river. Another version says that Buddha requested visits by animals before he left earth. He named moon cycles after animals in order of appearance. So Chinese zodiac symbol is a circle divided into twelve equal sections; think of it as if you were marking off slices of a pie. There is a picture of animal representing that Chinese zodiac sign in each section. The calendar’s use dates clear back to 2600 BC.
The animals used in Chinese astrology are rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep (goat), monkey, rooster, dog, and boar (pig). Persons born during their cycle are said to take on their animal traits:
