Animals and Sun: Remembering Religion Unspun?

The earliest religions in the Middle-East and the Americas both worshipped nature they could see; like darts legend Bobby George; in the sky, water and on the Earth. There are remarkable similarities in the religions of the world, such as across the Atlantic, although they are not supposed to have had any contact until Europeans crossed about half a millennium ago.

Meghan Markle’s Handbag… Of No Interest

If you’re more interested in Meghan Markle’s handbag than this, you’re probably in the wrong place, but this post just might show you where your tastes come from, and why you are attracted to such things… going back to the ancient gods… or space race.

One of the most amazing similarities in the ancient worlds that didn’t have any known connection is that both Sumerians and Mayans were shown carrying similar handbags, and they are also inscribed on the top of relatively recently discovered Gobekli Tepi stones (close to the Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia, Middle-East, but half way across the world from the Mayans in Mesoamerica), built 12,000 years ago, when there were only supposed to be hunter-gatherers around; and thousands of years before creation according to the later monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam in that order; I’m none really, although am Christian by birth).

The first monotheistic religion was arguably the ancient Egyptian, started by Akhenatan, who declared himself the son of the sun (Aten), the one and only god. There were also similarities across the Atlantic in sun and animal worship, as shown in this image from the Ancient Connections website:

They also have relevance for my decade-long greenYgrey website idea, and story development. The Greenygrey started off as one, before splitting into two, divided by the Y, making a triptych 3, which partly symbolised the yellow sun.

I’ve been open to those ideas through the media all my life, and have been to Egypt and the Americas too, so I have absorbed quite a lot of information over my lifetime, but when I saw the above image last week connecting the Middle-East and Americas I thought it was particularly reminiscent of how the greenYgrey ended up; and how I and Blighty; and the i in Blighty; are between them too, unevenly in the middle, like the Y in greenYgrey.

The greenYgrey was always meant to be a sun wolf anyway, but that was more down to my preference for the sun over the moon, and daytime to night. Not to mention being contrary to the normal wolf image; but not me being the King Contrary man like Mourinho (whose honesty in discussing his injury list shows why in religion many are attracted to the anti-Christ, viewing the Church; or its representatives at least; to have become dishonest, misleading and out of touch – hiding or demonising the ancient religions and wisdom is one example), oh no, just coffilosopher contrary… but a rather good one, up there with the great songwriters at least – although they can write music too!

Pollution Figures Justify Immigration Controls: I.S. Supporters Most Unwanted

Inspired by the fashion for wearing Che Guevara t-shirts by people who didn’t know who he was I once joked that most of the people frequenting the Sandinista bar in the city I live in, the city of (Chilis song), probably thought it was a Spanish island! It’s real meaning features below. If that ‘joke’ sounds arrogant and obnoxious, I think I’m only average on general knowledge, and am no University Challenge contestant; not a great one anyway!

It’s ironic that in Blighty, after non-white people who want a non-white majority (I’ve heard journalists Ayesha Hazariki and Yasmin Alibiah Brown supporting more mass immigration lately on Sky News newspaper round-ups; the latter said we’ve got it coming for what happened in the colonial era, amazingly using the example of Australia! Meanwhile, Chuku Umunna is one of the leaders of Labour’s Open Britain campaign slogan.) it’s usually the hippy counterculture types; such as Momentum; who advocate open borders mass immigration, while also protesting against more energy use (fracking etc) and nature destruction (city tree-felling etc).

Welcome New Alliances

They are entitled to their opinions, as I am to mine, and I’ve heard Alibiah Brown speak well against Islamism before. I’ve been pleased to see farmers and countryside types joining protests against fracking on the news recently; traditionally people on opposite sides of the animal welfare debate united in trying to protect the countryside environment.

During the greenYgrey years I seemed to provoke negativity from both sides; as well as women and men now seemingly united in protesting against institutional bullying and grooming, which was also high on the gYg agenda.

40,000 Reasons Why Team GB Should Choose Best Team

Pollution figures released yesterday showed nearly all cities and towns in Blighty at disease-causing levels, with 40,000 deaths per year attributed to it. Yet those who argue against mass immigration are treated negatively by the ‘nice leftie types’, who think politics is just making ‘nice’ decisions, spending all the money, and hoping for the best!

I was one before New Labour took Blighty to the brink of civil war and bankruptcy, inspiring the Brexit vote to leave the EU. I am worried about Blighty post-Brexit, especially for animal welfare and the environment, but Labour’s Open Britain policy just seems worse.

My Left-Wing Proof

I write this knowing that many on the right-wing would probably deport me if they could, because I’ve been critical of Blighty, and was a socialist counter-culturalist ‘enemy within’ during the 1980s and 1990s. Maybe because they think I’m a ‘J’ too!

My ideal image of a post-Brexit Blighty is of a semi-socialist environmentally aware utopia, with Cuba and Scandinavia the main inspirations. When I visited both I saw a lot of patriotism, alongside the socialism, and that’s how I think Team GB should be in the future.

I know socialism hasn’t worked a lot of the time, with Venezuela a recent example, although they have apparently faced embargos from the West?

Although I studied the Balkans in university, and the Middle-East was high on the agenda as usual, my main interest in international affairs during the 1980s was the Latin American civil wars. Although the socialists eventually gained power in countries like El Salvador, and the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, apparently they were usually a disappointment. The main left-wing group in El Salvador had been the FMLN (Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front), and I posed by a poster supporting them when travelling through in 1993:

I’m in the greenYgrey middle now, but still support the ‘primero the gente’ people first slogan. I don’t follow international affairs much now, not believing I can change anything, and it’s not really my business, and doubting how much influence I can even have in Blighty, or should have; I am after all only 1 of 65,000,000, thought to be rising to 70,000,000 in the next few years.

Which means much more pollution without less immigration or more greener policies; electric cars are not set to take over until 2040, which is 23 years x 40,000 deaths or more, which is about 1 million according to a quick web calculation.

And then I hear of nice hard-working Europeans having to leave, while I.S. volunteers are welcomed back! The Yazidi sex-slaves victims of the attempted genocide wasn’t even a topic in the interview with a play-station playing I.S. volunteer.

Sexual harassment in British institutions is high on the agenda, and sexual crimes on the streets is rising, yet some want to welcome back those who were tempted to fight for an enemy of Britain that boasted of their sex-slaves rape, and that have a culture dominated by female subservience and child marriage.

If we’re going to have a limit on non-British people, needed for a country fit to live in, environmentally and socially, can Team GB’s leaders choose the right ones: such as Nepali Gurkha veterans, Asian vegetarians, European allies/non-threats and those from around the world who support our good values and morals (admitting that in the past we haven’t always acted that way, as most or all other countries and cultures haven’t).
