Case For WTC Tower
Demolition Sealed By Griffin
Theologian Says Controlled Demolition is Now a Fact, Not a Theory
From Kevin Barrett Coordinator MUJCA-NET
Muslim-Christian-Jewish Alliance For 911

In two speeches to overflow crowds in New York last weekend, notable theologian David Ray Griffin argued that recently revealed evidence seals the case that the Twin Towers and WTC-7 were destroyed by controlled demolition with explosives. Despite the many enduring mysteries of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Griffin concluded, "It is already possible to know, beyond a reasonable doubt, one very important thing: the destruction of the World Trade Center was an inside job, orchestrated by terrorists within our own government."
On Oct. 15th and 16th, New Yorkers filled two venues to hear the prominent theologian and author of two books on 9/11 give a presentation entitled "The Destruction of the Trade Towers: A Christian Theologian Speaks Out." Dr. Griffin has continued to blaze a trail of courage, leading where most media and elected officials have feared to tread. His presentation went straight to the core of one of the most powerful indictments of the official story, the collapse of the towers and WTC 7.
Dr. Griffin included excerpts from the firemens tapes which were recently released as a result of a prolonged court battle led by victimнs families represented by attorney Norman Siegel and reported in the NY Times. He also included statements by many witnesses. These sources gave ample testimony giving evidence of explosions going off in the buildings. A 12 minute film was shown for the audiences, who saw for themselves the undeniable evidence for controlled demolition.
Dr. Griffin listed ten characteristics of the collapses which all indicate that the buildings did not fall due to being struck by planes or the ensuing fires. He explained the buildings fell suddenly without any indication of collapse. They fell straight into their own footprint at free-fall speed, meeting virtually no resistance as they fell--a physical impossibility unless all vertical support was being progressively removed by explosives severing the core columns.
The towers were built to withstand the impact of a Boeing 707 and 160 mile per hour winds, and nothing about the plane crashes or ensuing fires gave any indication of causing the kind of damage that would be necessary to trigger even a partial or progressive collapse, much less the shredding of the buildings into dust and fragments that could drop at free-fall speed.
The massive core columns--the most significant structural feature of the buildings, whose very existence is denied in the official 9/11 Commission Report--were severed into uniform 30 foot sections, just right for the 30-foot trucks used to remove them quickly before a real investigation could transpire.
There was a volcanic-like dust cloud from the concrete being pulverized, and no physical mechanism other than explosives can begin to explain how so much of the buildings' concrete was rendered into extremely fine dust. The debris was ejected horizontally several hundred feet in huge fan shaped plumes stretching in all directions, with telltale "squibs" following the path of the explosives downward.
These are all facts that have been avoided by mainstream and even most of the alternative media. Again, these are characteristics of the kind of controlled demolitions that news people and firefighters were describing on the morning of 9/11. Those multiple first-person descriptions of controlled demolition were hidden away for almost four years by the City of New York until a lawsuit finally forced the city to release them. Dr. Griffin's study of these accounts has led him beyond his earlier questioning of the official story of the collapses, to his above-quoted conclusion: The destruction of the three WTC buildings with explosives by US government terrorists is no longer a hypothesis, but a fact that has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
It is important to note that Dr. Griffin is one of many prominent intellectuals--including the likes of Gore Vidal, Howard Zinn, Peter Dale Scott, Richard Falk, Paul Craig Roberts, Morgan Reynolds and Peter Phillips--who have seen through the major discrepancies of the official explanation of 9/11 and have risen to challenge it. These brave individuals represent the tip of an ever-growing iceberg of discreet 9/11 skeptics. Indeed, 9/11 skepticism appears to be almost universal among intellectuals who have examined the evidence, since there has not yet been a single serious attempt to refute the case developed by Dr. Griffin and such like-minded thinkers as Nafeez Ahmed and Mike Ruppert. As for the general public, polls have shown that a strong majority of Canadians (63%, Toronto Star, May '04) and half of New Yorkers (Zogby, August 2004) agree that top US leaders conspired to murder nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11/01.
How, then, can the mainstream US media continue to ignore the story of the century? Perhaps the best answer was given by Dr. Griffin himself in the conclusion of his talk, and is worth quoting at length:
"The evidence for this conclusion (that 9/11 was an inside job) has thus far been largely ignored by the mainstream press, perhaps under the guise of obeying President Bushнs advice not to tolerate "outrageous conspiracy theories." We have seen, however, that it is the Bush administrationнs conspiracy theory that is the outrageous one, because it is violently contradicted by numerous facts, including some basic laws of physics.
"There is, of course, another reason why the mainstream press has not pointed out these contradictions. As a recent letter to the Los Angeles Times said:
"'The number of contradictions in the official version of . . . 9/11 is so overwhelming that . . . it simply cannot be believed. Yet . . . the official version cannot be abandoned because the implication of rejecting it is far too disturbing: that we are subject to a government conspiracy of "X-Files" proportions and insidiousness.'
"The implications are indeed disturbing. Many people who know or at least suspect the truth about 9/11 probably believe that revealing it would be so disturbing to the American psyche, the American form of government, and global stability that it is better to pretend to believe the official version. I would suggest, however, that any merit this argument may have had earlier has been overcome by more recent events and realizations. Far more devastating to the American psyche, the American form of government, and the world as a whole will be the continued rule of those who brought us 9/11, because the values reflected in that horrendous event have been reflected in the Bush administrationнs lies to justify the attack on Iraq, its disregard for environmental science and the Bill of Rights, its criminal negligence both before and after Katrina, and now its apparent plan not only to weaponize space but also to authorize the use of nuclear weapons in a preemptive strike.
"In light of this situation and the facts discussed in this lecture---as well as dozens of more problems in the official account of 9/11 discussed elsewhere---I call on the New York Times to take the lead in finally exposing to the American people and the world the truth about 9/11. Taking the lead on such a story will, of course, involve enormous risks. But if there is any news organization with the power, the prestige, and the credibility to break this story, it is the Times. It performed yeoman service in getting the 9/11 oral histories released. But now the welfare of our republic and perhaps even the survival of our civilization depend on getting the truth about 9/11 exposed. I am calling on the Times to rise to the occasion.
Dr. Griffinнs speech given at the University of Wisconsin earlier this year, entitled "9/11 and the American Empire," was broadcast twice on C-SPAN. In late September Dr. Griffin was asked to give expert testimony at hearings sponsored by Cynthia McKinney and the Congressional Black Caucus investigating the 9/11 Commission Report. He is currently Professor Emeritus at Claremont College in California.
This weekend's events were sponsored by, WBAI and the Muslim-Christian-Jewish Alliance for 9/11 Truth:
Kevin Barrett, Coordinator, MUJCA-NET
I had been thinking of posting something on 9-11. This is an excellent start. William Rodriques was a janitor and was in the sub-basement when he heard explosions seconds prior to the plane hitting the Tower. He pulled himself and his boss from the bomb wreckage. He has found 27 other witnesses willing to testify to hearing and seeing explosions inside the WTC on 9-11. He has organized demonstrations and informed the media in New York. The media knows the truth but will not tell. Truth telling is up to us. Jimmy Walter has offered a one million dollar prize to anyone who can disprove the the fact that bombs were set off
inside the WTC. See the reward info here: HTTP:// . I also recommend you look into the London bombing of 7-7-2005. Witnesses report that the bombs were placed underneath the subway cars. . At this point you might as well go for the trifecta and reopen the Oklahoma City bombimg case. Go here:
If you want to recommend a good place for a novice to start, then point to this site:

Two men have made arguments against Zionism that we need to understand and to promite if we are to survive this decade. One of these men is Charles Carlson. He is a devout Christian who converts evangelicals from Zionism to a sound and sane Christianity that opposes imperialism. His website - We Hold These Truths- has an article on CI Scofield and the conversion of Christianity to Zionism through the efforts of the Rothschild dynasty.This is a religous argument best made by one evangelical to another though I do recommendeveryone read it. It is here:

The second man is Israel Finkelstein, the archaeologist,whose book, The Bible Unearthed -ISBN 0684869128-makes argunents we all need to know and understand in order to intellectually defeat Zionism. I have written a few of his insights and conclusions below.

The historical sagas of Abraham, Lot, Moses, Joshuaand the Exodus were not miraculous revelations but the product of human imagination. The story of Exodus never happened at the time and the manner described in the Bible.

It is unlikely that the walls of Jericho came tumbling down due to a trumpet blast. The cities of Canaan were not walled and were not well populated at the time of the alleged events.

There is no convincing evidence of a unified invasion of Canaan by Joshua. The Israelites were originally Canaanites. Therefore, the Israelites have no special claim to be descendants of Abraham and heirs to the lands of the Mideast.

There were no mentions of either David or Solomon in any writings of the Egyptians or the Mesopotamians. There is no evidence that there was either a Temple of Solomon or a even a palace. There is not even any proof of the wealth the Bible claims for Solomon.

There is no proof that there was a unified Kingdom of Israel and Judah. David and Solomon were no more than hillside chieftains. Monumental inscriptions and royal seals were not seen in Judah until 200 years after Solomon.

The cities of the north of Israel were built by the Omri dynasty. Ahab and Jezebel were their most famous king and queen. The Omri had 2 capitols. One was at Samaria for their Israeli citizens. Their Cananninte capitol was at Jezreel.

King Josiah "found" the Book of the Law in 622 B.C. The "Book of the Law" interestingly did not appear until after literacy became widespread in Judah. The Old Testament was re-written to make Judah to appearto be the faithful followers of Jehovah. King Josiah died from war wounds. And Judah was taken into exile some years later.

The Passover was not celebrated as a national holiday untilafter the book of Deuteronomy was revised by the later priests of Judah in the seventh century B.C.

Elsewhere, I learned that the oldest Psalms were written by the Canaanites. Additional Psalms were written by Philistines who had been hired by the court and the priests. The Assyrian captivity stirred Jeremiah to make a prediction that in 70 years Israel would be retored as a nation. Years later the prophet Daniel read the prophecy of Jeremiah 25 and reinterpreted it to mean that the restoration would occur in 70 weeks of years after the rebuilding of the wall at Jerusalem. That moved the supposed restoration of Israeli sovereignty to 45 A.D. from 516 BC. In Daniel chapter 9 we read that the last seven years of the 490 was to be a week of trials and tribulations which are prominently featured in the Book of Revelation and in Christian Sunday Schools. The problem is that these prophecies were made for the periodof 38 to 45 A.D. They were not made for modern times. And the prohecies were never fulfilled in ancient times, neither in Jeremiah's predicted 516 B.C. or in Daniel's 38 to 45 A.D. I would not use the above arguments to convert people to atheism. I would say to the disillusioned Christians that the religion of the New Testament is experiential and mystical rather than historical and militaristic. it is time that Christianity and Judaism reject imperialism which claims the right to kill and to exploit anyone who is not like us.

Financing the New World Order

Did you ever wonder where the money the New World
Order crowd uses to manipulate the media, the
politicians and the events, such as, 9-11 and the 7-7
London bombings comes from? There are 2 very brave
women who say it comes from your taxes.

Catherine Austin Fitts was a former managing partner at
Dillon Read, a New York investment bank. She served as
deputy Secretary of HUD under the first President Bush.
She once found one block in San Diego on which HUD
had financed 10 mortgages for buildings that never existed.
She also found that during the Clinton administration the
federal government gave $4,000,000 in flood relief to
Bronxville, New York which had never had a flood in
the past 100 years. Are these exceptions? Catherine says

Susan Gaffney was the Inspector General for Clinton's
Housing and Urban Development department (HUD)
in 2000 when she testified before the Senate. She told
the Senators that 59.6 billion dollars of your tax money
was missing. When asked what she did,she said she
adjusted the books to reflect the fact that 17.6 billion
went missing in 1998 and 59.6 billion dollars went
missing in 1999 from this one agency. No attempt
was made to recover any of that money. And few
attempts have been made to recover any of the
money stolen from other departments. Ms. Fitts
notes that the past 4 Treasury Secretaries have
presided over budgets which feature over 4 trillion
dollars in unaudited federal spending which
were just ripe for looting.

Does the game seem stacked to favor of those
who need to steal billions of dollars from our
paychecks each week? Is this a coincidence?
Probably not. Does the Senate feel empowered to
ask the NWO to return the money they have stolen?
They definitely do not.

The second brave woman in this battle is Indira
Singh. She was a software enterprise consultant
to some of the biggest banks in the United States.
Enterprise wide software gives you access across
departments and agencies even if they are using
different computer systems and languages.

Indira came across a company that had access to
the computers at Treasury, the IRS, the FBI, the
Congress, the FAA, the Pentagon and many other
agencies. This company had the ability to give
anyone who wanted it access to steal billions of
dollars every week from the Treasury which is to
say your pocket. She has claimed in an interview
that they are even stealing billions from the Social
Security trust fund. If you own the, banks, the press
and the government, you have the right to use this
unlimited computer access to steal all the money
you need to bribe the politicians and the press and
to conduct covert operations.

This one company that had access to the computers
at the FAA and the Pentagon and the FBI and Secret
Service on 9-11-2001 was on a terrorist watch list,
because of the supposed links to terrorist organizations.
Michael Chertoff, who is now the head of Homeland
Security, was the head of the Department of Justice's
Criminal Investigation Division on 9-11. He refused
permission to any FBI agents to raid the offices of
this company that had access to the computers which
allowed the second and third planes to hit their
targets. This despite the links to "Arab terrorists"
by their board of directors. When Indira SIngh
talked to an honest CIA agent, he said he could not
talk about a "Front Office" operation. The offices
were raided after everyone fled the country. That
company changed its name and continues in
business to this date. You may have noticed
that I never mentioned the names of the individuals
and companies involved. That was to avoid lawsuits.
You can listen to Indira Singh's interview by
Bonnie Faulkner of the Guns and Butter radio
show here

Indira Singh has not been sued to date. She has
had her life threatened many times. She has been
told that she is not allowed to talk about drug and
gun running in Chechnya under penalty of death.
Catherine Austin Fitts has spent more than 6
million dollars defending herself in lawsuits.

Catherine has earned the right to tell us what she
has predicted the elite is planning. The money being
stolen from HUD, the military, Social Security and
other departments under both Democratic and
Republican administrations has been sent overeas
where it is multiplied through money laundering of
drugs and illegal weapons. The proceeds are invested
in hedge funds that profit from swings in the price
of oil and in the value of the dollar and other currencies.
When, not if, the dollar collapses, Catherine believes
they will buy American corporations for pennies on
the dollar with our stolen tax dollars.

When the dollar collapses, I would expect after tax wages
to be cut 70% for the working class, 80% for families and
individuals making $100,000 a year or more, and
90% for those who live on pensions and savings.
All small businesses will go bankrupt. The unem-
ployment rate will be 25%. We will all essentially
be working for Wal-Mart taking home $2.50 an
hour except for the rich who will take home ten bucks an
hour. The graduated income tax will push the poor
into tax brackets designed for the rich. The elite will
love that because it is our destiny to pay taxes to
support them.

Mahatma Gandhi's Vow of Truth

I vow to never see what is not there.

I vow to see everything that is there.
Call 'Depleted Uranium' what it is
by Daniel Fey, Unknown NewsOct. 4, 2005

Depleted Uranium is uranium-238. True, the gamma radiation has been reduced, but daughter particles do produce beta and gamma radiation. There is credible evidence that there are traces of plutonium present, and alpha radiation, which is harmful to humans, is actually increased.
The Pentagon loves U-238, because it has an atomic mass of 238 and flies right through the armor of an enemy tank. And it is pyrophoric, which means it bursts into flames.It is also used in the armor of American tanks. U-238 is heavier than lead, but what happens to our soldiers after a tank is hit by a roadside mine and they are exposed to uranium-238? One New York state National Guardsman's only exposure was to drive a flatbed truck with disabled tanks back to Kuwait for repair. Sergeant Gerard Darren Matthew became so ill that he received a medical discharge. His daughter was born with a birth defect 12 months after his return to New York She is missing several fingers. Sergeant Matthew has not been asked to testify before any congressional committees about the efficacy of uranium-238.
The New York Daily News ran sophisticated exams on nine Iraq war veterans, and found that four of the nine tested positive for U-238. Two states have demanded testing for all returning National Guard troops from their states.We must lobby the Congress to demand testing for all veterans. And I mean testing for U-238 in their lungs, not just their urine.The military brass is using urine tests to confuse the issue. Any urine test given 30 days after leaving Iraq will be negative. By testing only urine, the military knows they are subjecting the veterans to cancers and other diseases. And they are also subjecting the unborn children of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines to birth defects.

This will probably be worse than Agent Orange. One gram of Uranium-238 is more than sufficient to give cancer to a soldier, and create a birth defect in his or her unborn child.We can stop this war by refusing to call Uranium-238 "DU," and by demanding that every veteran be tested by state of the art methods as the Daily News did.

Uranium 238 causes birth defects.Who would join an army that exposed you to cancer causing radiation and subjected your unborn to high risks for birth defects?

Four out of nine returning soldiers poisoned
by Juan Gonzalez, New York Daily NewsApril 3, 2004

Four soldiers from a New York Army National Guard company serving in Iraq are contaminated with radiation likely caused by dust from depleted uranium shells fired by U.S. troops, a Daily News investigation has found.They are among several members of the same company, the 442nd Military Police, who say they have been battling persistent physical ailments that began last summer in the Iraqi town of Samawah."I got sick instantly in June," said Staff Sgt. Ray Ramos, a Brooklyn housing cop. "My health kept going downhill with daily headaches, constant numbness in my hands and rashes on my stomach."A nuclear medicine expert who examined and tested nine soldiers from the company says that four "almost certainly" inhaled radioactive dust from exploded American shells manufactured with depleted uranium.Laboratory tests conducted at the request of The Daily News revealed traces of two manmade forms of uranium in urine samples from four of the soldiers.If so, the men -- Sgt. Hector Vega, Sgt. Ray Ramos, Sgt. Agustin Matos and Cpl. Anthony Yonnone -- are the first confirmed cases of inhaled depleted uranium exposure from the current Iraq conflict.The 442nd, made up for the most part of New York cops, firefighters and correction officers, is based in Orangeburg, Rockland County. Dispatched to Iraq last Easter, the unit's members have been providing guard duty for convoys, running jails and training Iraqi police. The entire company is due to return home later this month."These are amazing results, especially since these soldiers were military police not exposed to the heat of battle," said Dr. Asaf Duracovic, who examined the G.I.s and performed the testing that was funded by The Daily News."Other American soldiers who were in combat must have more depleted uranium exposure," said Duracovic, a colonel in the Army Reserves who served in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.While working at a military hospital in Delaware, he was one of the first doctors to discover unusual radiation levels in Gulf War veterans. He has since become a leading critic of the use of depleted uranium in warfare.Depleted uranium, a waste product of the uranium enrichment process, has been used by the U.S. and British military for more than 15 years in some artillery shells and as armor plating for tanks. It is twice as heavy as lead.Because of its density, "It is the superior heavy metal for armor to protect tanks and to penetrate armor," Pentagon spokesman Michael Kilpatrick said.The Army and Air Force fired at least 127 tons of depleted uranium shells in Iraq last year, Kilpatrick said. No figures have yet been released for how much the Marines fired.Kilpatrick said about 1,000 G.I.s back from the war have been tested by the Pentagon for depleted uranium and only three have come up positive -- all as a result of shrapnel from DU shells.But the test results for the New York guardsmen -- four of nine positives for DU -- suggest the potential for more extensive radiation exposure among coalition troops and Iraqi civilians.Several Army studies in recent years have concluded that the low-level radiation emitted when shells containing DU explode poses no significant dangers. But some independent scientists and a few of the Army's own reports indicate otherwise.As a result, depleted uranium weapons have sparked increasing controversy around the world. In January 2003, the European Parliament called for a moratorium on their use after reports of an unusual number of leukemia deaths among Italian soldiers who served in Kosovo, where DU weapons were used.

I keep getting weaker. What is happening to me?The Army says that only soldiers wounded by depleted uranium shrapnel or who are inside tanks during an explosion face measurable radiation exposure.But as far back as 1979, Leonard Dietz, a physicist at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory upstate, discovered that DU-contaminated dust could travel for long distances.Dietz, who pioneered the technology to isolate uranium isotopes, accidentally discovered that air filters with which he was experimenting had collected radioactive dust from a National Lead Industries Plant that was producing DU 26 miles away. His discovery led to a shutdown of the plant."The contamination was so heavy that they had to remove the topsoil from 52 properties around the plant," Dietz said.All humans have at least tiny amounts of natural uranium in their bodies because it is found in water and in the food supply, Dietz said. But natural uranium is quickly and harmlessly excreted by the body.Uranium oxide dust, which lodges in the lungs once inhaled and is not very soluble, can emit radiation to the body for years."Anybody, civilian or soldier, who breathes these particles has a permanent dose, and it's not going to decrease very much over time," said Dietz, who retired in 1983 after 33 years as nuclear physicist. "In the long run ... veterans exposed to ceramic uranium oxide have a major problem."Critics of DU have noted that the Army's view of its dangers has changed over time.Before the 1991 Persian Gulf War, a 1990 Army report noted that depleted uranium is "linked to cancer when exposures are internal, [and] chemical toxicity causing kidney damage."It was during the Gulf War that U.S. A-10 Warthog "tank buster" planes and Abrams tanks first used DU artillery on a mass scale. The Pentagon says it fired about 320 tons of DU in that war and that smaller amounts were also used in the Serbian province of Kosovo.In the Gulf War, Army brass did not warn soldiers about any risks from exploding DU shells. An unknown number of G.I.s were exposed by shrapnel, inhalation or handling battlefield debris.Some veterans groups blame DU contamination as a factor in Gulf War syndrome, the term for a host of ailments that afflicted thousands of vets from that war.Under pressure from veterans groups, the Pentagon commissioned several new studies. One of those, published in 2000, concluded that DU, as a heavy metal, "could pose a chemical hazard" but that Gulf War veterans "did not experience intakes high enough to affect their health."Pentagon spokesman Michael Kilpatrick said Army follow-up studies of 70 DU-contaminated Gulf War veterans have not shown serious health effects."For any heavy metal, there is no such thing as safe," Kilpatrick said. "There is an issue of chemical toxicity, and for DU it is raised as radiological toxicity as well."But he said "the overwhelming conclusion" from studies of those who work with uranium "show it has not produced any increase in cancers."Several European studies, however, have linked DU to chromosome damage and birth defects in mice. Many scientists say we still don't know enough about the long-range effects of low-level radiation on the body to say any amount is safe.Britain's national science academy, the Royal Society, has called for identifying where DU was used and is urging a cleanup of all contaminated areas."A large number of American soldiers [in Iraq] may have had significant exposure to uranium oxide dust," said Dr. Thomas Fasey, a pathologist at Mount Sinai Medical Center and an expert on depleted uranium. "And the health impact is worrisome for the future."As for the soldiers of the 442nd, they're sick, frustrated and confused. They say when they arrived in Iraq no one warned them about depleted uranium and no one gave them dust masks.

The Experts behind this Daily News probeAs part of the investigation by the Daily News, Dr. Asaf Duracovic, a nuclear medicine expert who has conducted extensive research on depleted uranium, examined the nine soldiers from the 442nd Military Police in late December and collected urine specimens from each.Another member of his team, Prof. Axel Gerdes, a geologist at Goethe University in Frankfurt who specializes in analyzing uranium isotopes, performed repeated tests on the samples over a week-long period. He used a state-of-the art procedure called multiple collector inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry.Only about 100 laboratories worldwide have the same capability to identify and measure various uranium isotopes in minute quantities, Gerdes said.Gerdes concluded that four of the men had depleted uranium in their bodies. Depleted uranium, which does not occur in nature, is created as a waste product of uranium enrichment when some of the highly radioactive isotopes in natural uranium, U-235 and U-234, are extracted.Several of the men, according to Duracovic, also had minute traces of another uranium isotope, U-236, that is produced only in a nuclear reaction process."These men were almost certainly exposed to radioactive weapons on the battlefield," Duracovic said.He and Gerdes plan to issue a scientific paper on their study of the soldiers at the annual meeting of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine in Finland this year.When DU shells explode, they permanently contaminate their target and the area immediately around it with low-level radioactivity.

God is a Verb

In the english language we have a subject and a verb. We have an
actor and an action. But in many Native American languages the
verb and the subject are one. I recently read Joseph Rael's book,
House of Shattering Light. I had read similar ideas 20 years ago
when I studied linguistics.

The second Indian language Rael learned was Tiwa
which is spoken by the Picuris Pueblo of New Mexico.
I am convinced that the Tiiwa language gave him an
advantage over us when it comes to mystical ex-
perience. (Pueblo is Spanish for people.)

Listen to how he translates the english sentence, person
walking into Tiwa - taa chi who. Taa is stepping forward.
Chi is the sound legs make when chapping. And who is
the second foot stepping forward. In english we have a
noun and a verb. Notice that in Tiwa they have 3 verbs
and no nouns. Rael says the Tiwa really don't use nouns
just verbs. When we open our minds to this concept, we
will all make major spiritual brealthroughs and transform
the world.

If God is a verb, then you only have as much of God as
you allow to be expressed through you. How much Love
and Joy and Healing and Forgiveness is being expressed
by you and by the people you meet from day to day? What
would happen to our religions, our theologians, our churches,
our politics and our world if we all understood God is a Verb?
