Excerpt from ‘What Is’ book by Alexander Braun.
Science is a religion and full of holes as any religion is. Scientists still to this day can’t explain where the oil comes from, something humanity uses every day. According to the official version, it comes from organic matter, but that would produce coal, while there are a lot of offshore oil that comes from under the ocean floor where there is very little organic life and oil being lighter than water would have been then found on a surface, which is not the case. So, what is oil? The answer is unknown by science. Amazingly and ridiculous as it sounds, the stunning revelation is that our scientists as mythological in their “scientific” methods and intellectual constructs as our church fathers’ claims of geocentric universe and whatever number of angels can party on a tip of a needle. The origins of oil is one of the biggest scientific cover-ups of our time and embarrassing realities of science that the academia doesn’t want to acknowledge.
In my reason, since the offshore drilling goes deep under the ocean floor it makes a possibility for a bunch of algae getting stuck there to metamorphose into the vast oil fields all over the world very slim if none. Besides, according to the US NAVY detailed surveys maps done using special sonar technology which measured the age of the ocean floor that showed it to be 600 million years old at most near the continental shelf where it is the oldest as it grows spreading apart from the middle of the Atlantic and the Pacific riffs.

The cosmic spores that landed in water have evolved into plankton and produced the plant kingdom, the ones that landed in moist soil became algae and produced the animal kingdom above the ground and the fungi kingdom beneath the ground, all of the above produced human kingdom, but not the oil, which most definitely came from no algae.
I think that the oil, most likely, is synthesized inside the Earth’s core as by-product of the volcanic activity utilizing extremely high pressures and temperatures, however the science is silent about it. The Earth has actually doubled in size since the extinction of dinosaurs some 65 million years ago and is obviously growing, as anything else in the universe, universe including, and the fact that the most of the ocean floor is only a couple of hundred million years old compared with the Earth’s crust measuring 4-6 billion years, this too is being ignored by most scientists, even though it is obvious that all continents were at one time together in almost a perfect sphere of various minerals and virtually no water whatsoever for billions of years.
Religion is based on morals nurtured by virtues, science is based on method nurtured by experience, both are real and correct in many ways from their point of reference, as when two people standing on either side of a spinning wheel arguing over which way the wheel is turning, clockwise or counterclockwise, however both are correct. So, is it the evolution or creation, some might be wondering. The reality is that in today’s world there is no debate, a mass, about it at all. Then who won this ages old battle?
Well, the evolutionists, since the Pope has agreed with the Darwin’s creed back in the 60′s, granted, as God’s divine plan and direct involvement. No more 5000 years old Earth, aka the young Earth theory, for the Catholics world wide. The Protestants not qualified either since they have embraced the evolution theory before even Catholics did. What about the Muslim world, can it lend significant support to the Creationist camp? Well, not quiet. Remember that modern science in large parts came from the Arab world, where most people are well educated and know better than to believe that the world is only 5000 years old and that the dinosaur bones God placed on Earth to test our faith. OK then, what about the Jews, some may wonder. First off, there are only around 14 million people in the world who identify themselves as being Jewish and majority do not believe the 5780 years Earth anyway, and question everything as part of the Jewish Talmudic tradition, so regardless, that is not a factor in any case.
Moving on. Where then all these masses of religious creationist fanatics who lend significant opposition to the Darwin’s evolution theory today? How many of them are there? What percentage of people are we talking about, 50/50%, 20/80%?? Well, counting occasional Mormon and Jehovah witness and some other obscure fringe groups and individuals, there are actually not that many people in the creationist camp, about 1 to 2 % total of all people alive today. What?! That is it?!!! Then what about all this Creation vs Evolution debate on TV during the George Bush presidential campaigns? It is a so-called “wedge” issue, in likes of pro-choice vs pro-life, big government vs big business, environment vs economy, something to keep public focused on while they’re being robbed or killed or whatever reason for utilizing demagogue tool of the wedge issue polemics.
Polemics or not, where all this Bible thumpers who elected Bush twice into the office? The sad reality is that there never were nor are masses of the creationist religious fanatics now and during the Bush administration days, and the election results were simply fabricated and the election literally stolen, twice, from American people, hence was the need to invent fictional “masses” of creationist-uber-right-wing-conservative-Bible-belt support base for Bush, designed on the old basic principle of war – to divide and conquer.
Excerpt from book ‘Technopoly – The Surrender of Culture to Technology’ by Neil Postman, pages 78-79, chapter ‘The Broken Defenses’.
“[my comments in brackets...] Scripture has at its core such a powerful mythology that even the residue of that mythology is still sufficient to serve as an exacting control mechanism for some people. It provides, first of all, a theory about the meaning of life and therefore rules on how one is to conduct oneself. [...] the theory is as follows: There is one God, who created the universe and all that is in it. Although humans can never fully understand God, He[/She/It] has revealed Him[/Her/It]self and His[/Her/Its] will to us throughout hi[/her/it]story, particularly through His[/Her/Its] commandments and the testament of prophets as recoded in the Bible [and other "holy" scriptures]. The greatest of these commandments tells us that humans are to love God and express their love for Him[/Her/It] through love, mercy, and justice to our fellow humans [and all life]. At the end of time, all nations and humans will appear before God to be judged, and those who have followed His[/Her/Its] commandments will find favor in His[/Her/Its] sight. Those who have denied God and the commandments will perish utterly in the darkness that lies outside the presence of God’s light [God as the bearer of the light? I wonder... but anywho...].
To borrow from [Rabbi] Hillel: That is the theory. All the rest is commentary. [as I say, The body is holy, the rest is a story.]
Those who believe [be-lie-eve] in this theory — particularly those who accept the Bible as the literal word of God [the crazies] — are free to dismiss other theories [they are also free of burdening weight of reason] about the origin and meaning of life and to give minimal weight to the facts on which other theories are based. Moreover, in observing God’s laws, and the detailed requirements of their enactment [such as committing fashion and other crimes], believers receive guidance what books they should not read [that's an easy one], about what plays and films they should not see, about what music they should not hear, about what subjects their children should not study [another easy one], and so on [more like on and on and on...]. For strict fundamentalists of the Bible [what I call hopelessly possessed by the demons], the theory and what followers from it seal them off [in the mental hospitals would be the most appropriate] from unwanted information [which is the rest of the civilized society, Galilei and Bruno would have agreed, to name a few], and in that way their actions are invested with meaning, clarity, and, they believe, moral authority [well, lets just say that whatever moral that there was in the beginning got destroyed by the religious fanatics long before the Spanish inquisition].
Those who reject the Bible’s theory and who believe, let us say, in the theory of Science [aka government officials, lawyers, police, military, etc.] are also protected from unwanted information [so not to warp their fragile little minds]. Their theory [Alas, if there was only one!], for example, instructs them to disregard information about astrology [I thought that astrology was proto astronomy as alchemy was proto chemistry], dianetics [sounds too weird], and creationism [well, I think by now we all have heard about it more than once], which they usually label as medieval superstition [as in global warming] or subjective opinion [i.e. I am the centre of the universe]. Their theory fails to give any guidance about moral information and, by definition, gives little weight to information that falls outside the constraints of science [such as the eugenics of a perfect race to be sarcastic about it]. Undeniably, fewer and fewer people are bound in any serious way to Biblical or other religious traditions as a source of compelling attention and authority, the result of which is that they make no moral decisions, only practical ones [or in other words, More and more people leave church and coming back to God].” Allelujah!
