Dooms Day Provided No Doom – Atheists Rejoice!

Dooms Day Provided No Doom – Atheists Rejoice!
                I woke up on May 21st, 2011 and I was still alive. Not only was I alive, but I also received my tuition bill for school, and I had to buy food to survive yet another day in this world.  Unfortunately, many in this world are not able to afford these luxuries at all, and many have also woken up this morning and will not eat before they go to bed again at night. Most people will never be able to realize their potential, express themselves and grow with an education or even the basic healthcare to allow them to live out a full human lifespan.
                Atheists rejoice! You have one more piece of proof that there is no god because judgment day did not arrive on May 21st, 2011. Now you can make this claim with a little more confidence. And now is it your turn in the spotlight. So what are you going to do about it? And what have you been doing all this time anyways?
                I went to the Atheists of America website ( to see what all the fuss was about, and to see what Atheists are planning on doing to help fix the problems of the world. In the ‘About Us’ section I read quite a noble statement:
About American Atheists

Since 1963, American Atheists has been the premier organization laboring for the civil liberties of atheists and the total, absolute separation of government and religion. It was born out of a court case begun in 1959 by the Murray family which challenged prayer recitation in the public schools. That case, Murray v. Curlett, was a landmark in American jurisprudence on behalf of our First Amendment rights. It began:

"Your petitioners are atheists, and they define their lifestyle as follows. An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment."

                This new information led me to further investigate how exactly Atheists are going about bringing heaven on earth “for all men to enjoy.” They are not doing it through prayer, but rather through their “inner conviction.” The achievement thus far, according to the website, reads as follows:

The organization was founded by Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the noted atheist activist, as the result of her successful battle against mandatory school prayer and Bible recitation. Over the last thirty years, American Atheists has:
Fought fervently to defend the separation of religion from government
Appeared in all forms of media to defend our positions and criticisms of religion and mythology
Held atheist conventions and gatherings throughout the United States, including "Atheist Pride" marches in state capitals
Demonstrated and picketed throughout the country on behalf of atheist rights and state/church separation. The organization    has marched to defend the rights of intellectuals such as writer Salman Rushdie, protested the use of government funds to support public religious displays, and conducted the first picket of a Roman Catholic pope in history
Published over 120 books about atheism, criticism of religion, and state/church separation
Published newsletters, magazines, and member alerts 
Built a broad outreach in cyberspace with mailing lists, an ftp and web site, FaxNet, and other projects to keep members and the general public informed 
Fostered a growing network of representatives throughout the nation who monitor important First Amendment issues and work on behalf of the organization in their areas
Grown a network of volunteers who perform a variety of important tasks in their community, from placing American Atheist books in libraries to writing letters and publicizing the atheist perspective 
Preserved atheist literature and history in the nation's largest archive of its kind. The library's holdings span over three hundred years of atheist thought.  Provided speakers for colleges, universities, clubs, and the news media
Granted college scholarships to young atheist activists.
                After I read this I was left wondering where in these achievements are the practical solutions that will bring heaven on earth for our fellow man? It seems more like the Athiests involved in this particular organization are making things better for their fellow Atheists in America.
                Declaring there is no god is fine by me, as is the separation of church and state. But it’s about time to start considering the next step. Religious people at least have the excuse that they are waiting for god to save them. They have obviously not lived the words of the profits that touted love, equality, peace on earth and to judge not, because despite all the religious heads of state, there has been no decline in starvation, suffering and war. Actually, the religious leaders of the world’s ‘super powers’ have profited off the suffering of their fellow men, as well as plants and animals, and have continuously accepted donations from corporations which do the same.
                All the while, Atheists have lived in the comfort of this system, being provided for and living the good life as we all do here in America (as well as all developed countries), without ever standing for what they claim to be their mission. So where are the atheist leaders, and why have they never stepped up?
                This is the point where the argument of charity comes in. However, it is blatantly obvious that charity has not fixed the problem. Charity has given limited aide to those in the world who are suffering due to our lifestyles and attitudes in elite countries. As we continue to live the way we do we cause others to struggle to survive, benefitting from their vulnerable positions, and much of the time profiting off of their abuse (for example ‘slave labour,’ deforestation, the mass production of meats etc...). Charities do not offer a solution to the core problem which is our economic system, which supports what I have named above. In fact, charities almost guarantee the continued acceptance and allowance of the system the way it is, because they make people think they are helping. They allow people to feel good about themselves that they are giving their money away to those less fortunate. They take the guilt and shame factor out of the scenario (watch this short video on charity for further insight:
                Furthermore, many, if not most of us in the elite countries are starting to also become enslaved by our economic system. Prices are rising, our countries are going bankrupt, unemployment is rising, social services are being cut, budgets are tightening, and so on. We are now becoming less and less able to support and provide even for ourselves, which takes our attention even further away from those who are not able to afford even the basics such as food and water.
                Back to the main point: we humans can go back and forth for lifetimes debating whether or not there is a god. All the while children are dying of starvation and being sold into the sex trade, families are living in squalor and working like slaves to survive, our environment is being destroyed beyond measure, animals are being treated like they cannot feel pain, and we are busy keeping up appearances.
                It’s time to realize that there is a group who has not only made a practical proposal for a solution, but one that we are working towards implementing in actuality. At this point in time, the mere fact that a solution has been proposed is a huge step. The solution is what we call an Equal Money System, wherein we will change the economic system as we know it. This proposal will solve a vast amount of the world’s current problems in many ways and it is a first step towards the actual existence of equality on earth. Equality cannot exist unless financial equality exists because we live in a world where you have to be able to pay to survive.
                The Equal Money System offers a basic income that will provide each human being with all the essential necessities for a dignified life (to see how we propose to do this visit Human beings, as custodians of the earth, cannot support their environment if they aren’t even able to support themselves. Today’s sustainable solutions are simply not affordable to the vast majority of people, even in developed countries. Environmentalism has been dubbed a ‘concern of the wealthy’ because they are the only ones who can afford to support it. But why should they? They are such a small group that even if every one of them did all they could and spent all their money on trying to make a difference – no difference would be made because the money they earn is supporting the abuse they are trying to prevent. It’s a vicious circle which needs to end, and the only end in sight is an economic change.
                So Atheists: if there is no god, what are you going to do about these problems? If you truly love your fellow man, what are you proposing other than supporting your own beliefs? And how is this behaviour any different than those of Christians for example, who support their beliefs but still do nothing to practically change the situation? The Equal Money System satisfies both of your missions. If we implement an Equal Money system we will be living Christ’s words in fact, in that it will allow us all to love our neighbours, to do unto others as we would have them do unto us, and it will allow us to love our fellow man by providing him his daily bread. It also satisfies the Atheist message of changing the world by ourselves, that is, without divine intervention, and it is something we can do now, right NOW!
                In terms of the knowledge of self and of our fellow man in order to understand our nature and how we have arrived at this point: the Desteni I Process is one which offers a complete explanation of human nature, the human mind, and tools to change oneself in order to be an example to our fellow man ( Many people are already taking this course and offering their experience as support for others. Visit to try out these tools for yourself, absolutely free. Then, once you see the common sense and the effectiveness of the tools, you can sign up for the Desetni I Process to streamline your effectiveness, support the implementation of the Equal Money System and eventually support yourself financially by supporting others to do the same.
                Please start now, stop this insanity before it’s too late. Walk with us as a group so we may bring about a change that will bring dignity back to existence.

     In Bahrain many oppressed people have begun to protest in their demand for equal rights and a more transparent and accountable government among other things. These protesters are being arrested, tortured and murdered by their own government on the world stage while all powerful countries stand aside and watch.

     This is not surprising to anyone, in fact, we may not even raise an eyebrow because we have heard of this type of abuse so many times before. But the difference is this is going on right now, and in our inaction we are accepting it. It is normal to us and it will continue to happen so long as we don't change.

     Why is change so scary to us? Why are we so docile? How would we feel if it were us and not them who were being tortured and murdered after having been oppressed for so long that we just couldn't take it anymore? And most importantly, how would we want the rest of the world to react?

     I have never been religious but I do agree with the principle of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. When I put myself in the shoes of the citizens of Bahrain I would want help. Not military help, not more war and more conflict, but a huge group of people who will not stand for this kind of outright abuse. This is what we are doing at desteni with the proposal of the Equal Money System. We are taking a stand using social media and proposing a system that will allow all to gain the basics for a dignified life.
     Nobody who is currently in a position of power and great wealth will ever act to change the current system because they require it to live in the lap of luxury as they do. They do not have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, and they keep that security by supporting a system that benefits them in this way at the expense of others. This is why mainstream media will never be the voice that changes the world, it has to come from us. This is not a choice, it is a responsibility we have to bear in the name of life, in our name.

     Where will we find the strength, the energy and the compassion to dedicate ourselves to such a venture? This is where the desteniiprocess comes in. It is a process of leadership training that will assist each one to maximize their human potential to the fullest ( This is the process that answers the questions of why we fear change, why we are so docile, and how we can separate ourselves so much from other beings that we do not even care enough to know what's going on in the world. In a way we can be seen as desensitized and brainwashed, having been raised without the proper tools to support ourselves as decent human beings. Instead we are directed by greed and lust, or fear and depression. It is time to learn the tools that will free us all to direct ourselves to a place where we can clearly state: till here no further.

     As we stand here accepting this abuse to take place we blame the elite, however we neglect to realize that we too are the elite. We live in their shadows and reflect their behaviour and live comfortably off the scraps they throw us to keep us content. We are growing fat and medicated, we are slowly losing our rights and every day it becomes a little more difficult to survive. But instead of stopping we continue to hope, to drink away our problems and to work like slaves to pay our way. In our belief that 'at least we have it better than most in the world' we live in the constant fear of having it all taken away and becoming like 'them.' We do not realize that we are them already, not in situation, but in fact. As they suffer, a part of us suffers, and instead of realizing our oneness we go insane. That is why both oneness and equality are required, and the only way we can achieve that is to guarantee each and every human being's basic needs are met, with the opportunity to work for the luxuries in life. This will be the reality in the Equal Money System, a reality that IS possible.

     In Bahrain horrible abuse is going on in our names. Do we stand here, powerless and depressed in our own lives, or do we find how much of a force we can become by taking in to consideration the commonsense of taking care of all life as we would like to be cared for?

     The answer is obvious. Do unto others because others are in fact you. Lets start to take care of ourselves in this world like we should have always done. An Equal Money System will end this repeating cycle of madness once and for all.

Why am I blogging?

No Voice
I am writing this blog to be a voice for the people and things in this world which currently have none. The fact that I have access to the internet is an indicator that I am of the elite in this world, meaning I have a voice, and in that, I have a responsibility. I have a voice because I have money to survive and participate in society in a way that supports me in my daily existence, but there are too many who starve, who suffer and who are abused due to the gap in wealth which continues to grow. There are too many things that I see that I can no longer accept and allow myself to live with without taking a stand and speaking up about. It’s time to reveal the system we live in for what it really is, read on to find out how:
I have joined a group called Desteni by standing up through being a visible supporter of global equality and the Equal Money System. In doing this I state the principles by which I am currently training myself to live, which is to act only in ways which take all life in to consideration by doing what’s best for all. In this I hold true the fact that nothing is equal unless all are equal (
                The Equal Money System is a proposed solution and alternative to our current economic system. It is a practical common sense solution which will utilize political and democratic means for its implementation (www.equal The Equal Money System will be supported by the Equal Life Party, a political group which is in the early stages of development whose intent is to work from within the current existent system to create a new system (
Desteni, the group of people who proposed the idea, also take into consideration the role of human nature and its place within the systems within which we live. These systems are mainly the economic, religious and educational systems. The Desteni website offers tools with which one can change one’s own nature as a first step toward the global change that exist within the realm of possibility, and which will require a large group of like-minded people to back it. By ‘like-minded’ I’m talking about a group that cares about those who suffer, about the destruction of the environment, and about the devastation and abuse of all life that goes on in this world on a daily basis.  We were all born into these systems the way they currently are therefore this reality is all we know. However, it is possible to look beyond the status quo to a world where all life is valued equally, and all life is supported with adequate food and shelter
The Equal Money System is the first proposal of its kind because it implies equality for ALL, not just some, not many, not the majority, but ALL. This solution is practical because it utilizes the technological, systemic, institutional and physical infrastructure which already exists, and requires nothing more than a change of how we think and act in our daily lives. Yes, it will require work to implement and yes, there will be a time of transition within which we will require to adjust, but how far would you go if it were you or your child that were starving? I’m sure you would be willing to commit your life to it, as many of us are already doing.
I’m writing this blog because I stand for a system that will end child prostitution, animal abuse, environmental degradation and many many crimes against humanity committed in the name of profit. If we don’t stand against these things, then in our inaction we support them. Anyone who can read this has a voice and therefore the responsibility to be a voice for those that have none. Join me, join the group, and let us act now to bring about this solution that will end the hell on earth we may only hear about, and bring about heaven on earth that all may enjoy.
Follow my blog until you understand how this can work, read the Desteni and Equal Money material until you are comfortable with thinking outside the box, and look into the Desteni tools until you realize how much power you, one individual, actually has. Take your time, but take it now.
