To believe in a universe as young as six or seven thousand years old is to extinguish the light from most of the galaxy. Not to mention, the light from all the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe.

"Christianity neither is, nor ever was, a part of the common law."

Thomas Jefferson, in a letter written to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 1814

Jefferson was the principle author of the Declaration of Independence and third U.S. president (via whats-out-there)

This will continue to be relevant until its influence no longer affects the future of our civilization.

Throughout history, most currency (including the US dollar) was linked to valuable commodities, and the amount of it in circulation depended on a government’s gold or silver reserves. But after the US abolished this system in 1971, the dollar became what is known as fiat money, which means it is not linked to any external resource but instead relies solely on government policy to decide how much currency to print.

From the TED-Ed Lesson What gives a dollar bill its value? - Doug Levinson




Animation by Qa’ed Mai



It’s important to remember that money is only empowering because we still live amidst a society still struggling to perpetuate a system of monetary exchange/distribution so disproportionate in its management that the “power” granted by currency is actually only due to its ability we’ve given it by which it throttles “access” to a better way of life, yes, but more specifically, abundance.

To further illustrate the incredibly hypocritical society that governs our lives, I encourage everyone to explore my Peter Joseph archive, watch his “Culture in Decline" series, explore my Peter Diamandis archive, and especially THIS POST, highlighting the importance of this very topic.

Modern Life Is War - Stagger Lee

My name is Stagger Lee.
And I’m walking through the ice and snow.
And my girl threw me out last week.
And I’m fucking broke.
Nothing but this dollar in my pocket
And my Colt .45.
Don’t look at me the wrong way
Cause I got nothing to lose tonight.

Walk into JD’s.
 And put a dollar down.
Turn the dollar into a few.
I start drinking and I turn around.
Cause I feel a pair of eyes
Burning into the back of my neck.
He’s whispering to the barkeep.
“The goddamn fool won’t stop staring at me.”
So I shoot up from my seat
And press the cold steel to his head
And said
“Don’t you know who the fuck I am!?”
He said, “Stagger Lee,
Please don’t take my life.
I’ve got a kid back home
And I’ve got a wife.”
He said, “Please, Stagger, please.
I’m a friend, not a foe.
But your girl’s with Billy
At the Flamingo.
I just thought you should know.”

So I pistol whip him in the teeth and walk outside.
Steal the first fast car I see.
And as my blood starts to boil…
I start, to take a little ride.
I leave the car running.
Pull down the brim of my Black Stetson Hat.
Look around and I see no witness.
One last drink from my silver flask.
I kick open the door.
I see their bodies intertwined.
I see the fear in their eyes.
I point my Colt .45
And I feel divine.
WOAH!

Stagger Lee… you’re a bad, bad man.
Oh Stagger Lee, you’re going straight to hell.
Stagger Lee, you’re a bad, bad man.
Oh Stagger Lee, you’re going strait to hell.

"If there is a God, He will have to beg my forgiveness."
