  1. I listened to teals video and from what I understand she is talking about the two most damaging religions or doctrines. I understand that when she talks about Muslim religion being the most destructive. She is talking about Muslims who take their religion to the extreme are the most destructive than other religious people. I agree with that because we have seen radical Muslims that blow themselves up. Now, this doesn’t mean all Muslim people are destructive or radical. This is what Elohim has not bee able to See. Also, it is true Mormons are very secretive and have lots of power. You just have to research or live in Utah and see all the crap Mormon leaders get away with. Just recently the Mormon movie director was sentenced to jail for abusing little children. This man was a prominent business man, Mormon leader and was considered worthy to enter the Mormon holy temple, now he is jail. There are more cases like this one and lots of information on all the crap Mormon leaders do, in my experience is mostly Mormon leaders involved in this stuff. Most me,bears don’t even know what is happening. This is the reason there are many Mormons who are nice good people. But ultimately, these Mormon leaders abuse their power and damage others, including their own people. They keep their members in darkness with the inability to question or trust their own judgement. I live in Utah. I see this everyday. I still choose to be nice to Mormons and Muslims who are nice and not crazy radicals.
  2. Good question. I have thought about this myself. I do t believe in cutting America into pieces. America is the whole continent. Big and beautiful north and South America makes a whole America. I will say we live in the US but America is the whole continent. We should not cut in half the mother land.
  3. If you want to call Connie Muslim sympathizer, should we call you Muslim hater then? Should we just hate each other? Is this what you suggest? I wonder how this would make things better.
  4. Great comment. I went to school with Muslims and they were mostly nice people. It’s only those who become extreme and radical that cause problems. I also have catholic friends who were very nice. And I have mormon friends who were very nice too. There are nice people everywhere.
  5. If America is so great, then why many Americans also live America? What a stupid questions man. There are so many reasons to leave a country that have nothin g to do with religion. Anyway, let me spell it for you. Most countries are great. People leave because they have bad governments, corrupt leaders, violence, not because their country is not great. Even here in America people leave too. I have a friend who is selling his house and moving to Spain.
  6. Yeah What a disgusting comment from Elohim. What a jerk. I guess that from Elohim comments I could say all Americans are jerks, but because I’m not an idiot, I know that not all Americans are jerk, some are nice Americans and some are elohims. If I have to be fair, I’ll say not all Muslims are the same. I know there are Muslims who are terrorists but I have met Muslims that were very nice people. Elohim is the one in denial cause he wants all Muslims to be evil terrorists instead of having rh courage to see that not all Muslims are terrorists. Who is denial there? Can’t you see that? It’s just so stupid to say that all Muslims are terrorists, same as it is stupid to say all Americans are Jerks.
  7. I think the problem here is that Elohim doesn’t like the reality that many American Christians are not real Christians. Teal tells the truth about it, but she never said they were evil people. She said these so called Christians are unconscious, meaning they can’t see or realize that they preach love and Christianity but they support war and violence. Their words don’t match their actions. When someone can’t see themselves as they really are, they cannot make changes.
  8. Hey Elohim, all religions can be dangerous, not just Islam, I live in Utah and Mormons do some crazy stuff some times. But also, there are good things about religions as well. Religion is more a tool that can be used for good or for bad. And one thing, “freedom isn’t free”, this idea is something that has been taught to Americans but is not entirely true, it depends. We are all born free without making any sacrifice. The only sacrifice you have to make to have freedom is when someone takes your freedom away using military power, only then you have to fight for freedom. See what I mean? There are poor countries no one cares to invade. They have freedom and don’t have to fight for it or make any sacrifice. The reason we have to fight for freedom is that men take it away from us. The false idea freedom has a price is to justify spending money in military equipment. People who believe this idea doesn’t mind when the government spends tons of money in military. Religion can blind people to reality in the same way false ideas blind people to reality. Maybe is you who needs to move to a little country to see how other people have freedom without making sacrifices.
  9. I have to say racism is a big problem in the USA, to the point that even some religious people are racist. I live in Utah where the majority are mormons and racism here is bad, of course you notice this if you are a minority or if you befriend a minority person. Otherwise, most mormons think utha is heaven. my first year of college in Utah, one of my roommates (Caucasian) , started dating a man from Colombia. They got engaged and were very much in love. Both of them were mormons as well as their families. One day her family came to pay her a visit to let her know that if she didn't stop the wedding, they would not pay for her college tuition, food, room and board any longer. she had to choose between her man and her family. The family even contacted the bishop in the area to talk to her a about it. In the end , after a lot of conflict and many days crying, she agreed to stop the wedding. The family inmediately transfered her to another university in a different town far away. I was very upset about this family claiming to be followers of Christ when the truth is that they were just super racist. Of course, in their eyes, they saw no problem with this. years have passed and I have met many racist people in Utah who find no problem with harrassing minorities and then go to church the next day like nothing happened. The Level of hypocrisy and unconsciousness is shocking.
  10. Hello there, interesting commnet. I agree with with you when you said that by creating minorities, we are creating " separation", or Alt right. However, the rest of your comment was really long and did not explain why white supremacists are not racista in your view. As as I understand, white supremacists, believe the white race is superior/ supreme, above other races; which in turn makes the other races inferior to white race. Now, isn't believing other races are inferior called racism? And. Let's not forget that the idea of being above or below someone is not oneness. Oneness= you and me are the same/ equal. I agree with teal that denying to accept that racism exists is a big part of the problem. EvenStar

    Pura Vida

    Yeah, it makes sense people get angry when others are happy. I suppose it's understandable. In the end, they are the ones getting angry, theyare the ones creating suffering for themselves. Then they spread this suffering with hateful comments and they become one more source of the same suffering they claim to care about. Ironic. But that's how life is or as the Costa Ricans would say: " es pura vida." I myself have been very sick now since March and I'm recovery very slowly. I feel crappy most of the time and my husband is happy and singing while sitting next to me on the couch. Really, there are time s when I just want to punch him on the stomach and tell him to shut up. Partly because in wish I could be healthy already, mostly because he is very annoying. But I dont do this, because I know I'm very annoying myself. Do I feel like a bad person for feeling this way? Guilty? Bad wife? Not really. I used to feel bad about it when I was religious because I wanted to be perfect. Now I just t want to be honest with myself. So, even though my husband annoys me and I want to punch him, I let him be happy. I don't stop him or make him feel bad about being happy. I have learned to feel happy for him even though I feel like crap. And about teal's pictures, I love them. If I was as pretty as her, I would take pictures of myself all the time. It's because of her pictures that now I am more interested to visit Costa Rica some day.
  12. Yeah, this blog really reminds me of my own experience. I used to be a mormon for 30 years. I was taught that our church was the only true church. At the moment I didn't realize it, but this idea gave me a feeling of superiority. Everyone else was wrong and I was right. After we left the church we expereinced the disapproval of mormons who saw us unfaithful. We learned what it felt like to be treated by others as inferior. We were on the other side of the coin. When I realized I have made others feel this way, I felt awful. We left the church after we were bullied in the street by a church leader. It's true mormons teach charity but many times in the practice they do the opposite. We were rejected by our leaders for complaining about things that were not right. People we thought were our friends stopped talking to us. It was obvious the leadership warned everyone about us. And I hated mormon church leaders. I also fantasized about temples and chapels blowing up. But not only that, I imagined these leaders being hit by lightning or getting hit by a train. And it felt good. Sometimes I felt I was evil for thinking this way. I felt guilty. But I learned to accept my dark side without condemning myself. when the time was right, I was ready to move on and start healing. If I ever lived in the Middle East and people killed my family, I'm sure I would have become a terrorist and killed everyone, just like Rambo in one of those movies everyone likes; because it's ok for Rambo to kill everyone and it's ok to to watch this and enjoy it, right? Because Rambo is the good guy. see the irony? The hypocrisy of the society we live in? Someday we will be faced with the ugly truth that sometimes we do things that make people hate us. (Like when I acted superior, for example).
  13. I'm a little confused. I thought source was pure love and light. And that fear and hate were the abscence of source. Now I hear source is everything, source is war and is peace, etc. does this mean source is fear and evil too? Can source be love and hate at the the same time?
  14. I may not agree with you in everything you say but I think you made a good comment. I myself have wobdered about this. I wonder what teal means when she say people live more like animals than like people. What does she understand by a " primitive state"? In my view, there are no many differences between us and animals in general. And by us I mean all of us in every country, including the US of course. In fact, I like animlas better than people, since they are more authentic than us. If teal means people are in a survival mode, then I will have to agree with that, however, this happens in the US too. Maybe at a smaller scale but still happens here too. I live in Salt Lake, Utah and walked by the homeless shelter downtown once, I was terrified. I felt people were going to rob me and I had to get away from there right away. In that moment I realized why that street was so empty and why it was so easy to find a parking spot there.
  15. Teal just described most Latin American countries. I myself , many times, wish I could blend the best of all worlds in one. I started with my own family. I try to learn from the best features each member of my family has. In the future , I like to go backs to spain, but I would like to be able to live in a nice home, like the one I have here. That's the hard part.
