The Rennaissance is a good example of what happens when people are freed from the constraints and restrictions imposed upon them through superstitions wrapped in the cloak of religion. History reveals that Europe’s great reflowering of knowledge happened despite the middle eastern Abrahamic beliefs which had colonized them.
For 1000 years, during what are called the Dark Ages, Europe dwelled in the doldrums of superstition due to the grip of Abrahamic Religion.
While China was undergoing a “Golden Age” and introducing paper money, tea drinking, and inventing the compass, printing and chemical breakthroughs such as gunpowder. Europe languished. China broke ground in economics, navigation, education, mining, science and warfare. Economics were made simpler and easier through paper money, people were able to work longer and more efficiently with tea, navigation was enhanced via the compass, the sharing of knowledge, history and education was made more efficient via the printing press. Mining was made easier with gunpowder.
Science if our friend
While European “priests” were hanging female herbalists calling them “witches” when they healed their fellow citizens. China was exploring the science of herbalism and producing cures for numerous health challenges.
While you might believe that the US was created by a group of Abrahamics with copies of the King’s James Bible, history reveals that the US was formed by Free Masons. Facts are not subject to whim. Your rights will belong to you as long as you exercise them. Just as your body and mind will continue to work as long as you exercise them. Know your rights. Read them, share them, protect them, exercise them: Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). While it is a fact that the highest wisdom given to humanity is the Universl Declaration of Human Rights and these rights were recognized in 1948, this does not mean that you will still have these rights in the future unless you ensure that you protect them for you and for all others.
For any person or group of people to have rights, they must first recognize them. Recognition is also the first step in what New Thought folk call Spiritual Mind Treatment. After we recognize our Universal Rights, then we must declare our Unity with those rights which means these rights are for all people.
After knowing the truth of our Unity with these Universal Human Rights, we realize that for rights to have value, they must be realized for all people. Each and every day, we give thanks for the truth. We share this truth.
