We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..?

The Resurrection

Some say it is impossible. The dead, they say, cannot come back to life. Some say the scientific evidence is against it. Some say that our faith is misplaced, or that we are irrational idiots, zealots, extremists. They pour scorn on our efforts to re-establish the Kingdom on Earth. They even actively oppose us, citing "ethical" concerns, or by seeking to limit our activity using legislative means and preying on the unwarranted fears of a gullible public.

But they will not succeed.

Our faith is strong, we have right and reason on our side. And in that day of rejoicing, as the nay-sayers gaze in awed terror, we will welcome the re-establishment of a state of glory that has not been seen on Earth since the infancy of humanity.

Yes, one day the mighty mammoth will be cloned from its DNA, and once more majestically roam the Siberian tundra.

Hallelujah!

  1. What's the point if you can't clone a T-Rex?

  2. And why set the Mammoths loose in Siberia? Why not the Giant's Causeway?

  4. You have the DNA in your lab don't you?
    If this is bio-terrorism, I want IN!

  5. Ha ha! I don't need the DNA - all I need is the *sequence*! :-)

  6. The first wholly new interpretation for 2000 years of the Gospel and moral teachings of Christ is on the web. Redefining all primary elements including Faith, the Word, Law, Baptism, the Trinity and especially the Resurrection, this new interpretation questions the validity and origins of all Christian tradition; it overturns all natural law ethics and theory. At stake is the credibility of several thousand years of religious history and moral teaching. What history, science and religion have agreed was not possible, has happened.

    Using a synthesis of scriptural material from the Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha , The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Nag Hammadi Library, and some of the worlds great poetry, it describes and teaches a single moral LAW, a single moral principle, and offers the promise of its own proof; one in which the reality of God responds directly to an act of perfect faith with a demonstration of His omnipotence, an individual intervention into the natural world; 'raising up the man' correcting human nature by a change in natural law, altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries. Intended to be understood metaphorically, where 'death' is ignorance and 'Life' is knowledge, this experience, personal encounter of transcendent power and moral purpose is the 'Resurrection', and justification for faith. Here is where true morality and perfect virtue, called righteousness begins.

    Here then is the first ever viable religious conception capable of leading reason, by faith, to observable consequences which can be tested and judged. This new teaching delivers the first ever religious claim of insight into the human condition, that meets the Enlightenment criteria of testable, verifiable, direct cause and effect, evidence based truth embodied in action. For the first time in history, however unexpected, the world must measure for itself, the reality of a new claim to revealed truth, a moral tenet not of human intellectual origin, offering access by faith, to absolute proof, an objective basis for moral principle and a fully rationally, justifiable belief!

    This is 'religion' revealed without any of the conventional trappings of tradition. An individual, virtue-ethical conception, independent of all cultural perception in a single moral command, and the single Law finds it's expression of obedience within a new covenant of marriage. It requires no institutional framework or hierarchy, no churches or priest craft, no scholastic theological rational, dogma or doctrine and ‘worship’ requires only conviction, faith and the necessary measure of self discipline to accomplish a new, single, categorical moral imperative and the integrity and fidelity to the new reality.

    If confirmed, this will represent a paradigm change in the moral and intellectual potential of human nature itself; untangling the greatest questions of human existence: consciousness, meaning, suffering, free will and evil. And at the same time addressing the most profound problems of our age.

    Trials of this new teaching are open to all and under way in many countries. For those individuals who will question their own prejudices, who can imagine outside the historical cultural box, with the moral courage to learn something new, and test this for themselves, to stand against the stream of fashionable thought and spin, an intellectual and moral revolution is already under way, where the 'impossible' becomes inevitable, with the most potent Non Violent Direct Action any human being can take to advance peace, justice, change and progress.

    Published [at the moment] only on the web, a typeset manuscript of this new teaching is available as a free [1.4meg] PDF download from a variety of sites including:

  7. Well, that sure sounds plausible and not a lot of bollocks; chaps, what do you think about Klatu's interesting suggestion? Peter, this sounds very like your worldview. Comments?

  8. No, I've seen the remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still"...

    http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0012788/

    these films seem to get steadily worse.
    This means that Klatu's link will take us to acting even *worse* than Keanu Reeves', and direction cheesier than Scot Derrickson's. Derrickson wrote the terrible "Bruce Almighty".

    I'll think you'll find that the Torah demands that we should take Derrickson outside the city and stone him. And I'm sure that secularists and Christians will agree that this is a reasonable punishment for a man who thinks Jim Carey is funny.

  9. I think I've just seen a black cat go past me, and then another one like it... what could that mean?

  10. It's a pity, because I think we've detected a weakly-interacting massive particle of dark matter just zipping through our region of space, never to be seen again.

    Not the Higgs, unfortunately.
