the leper’s zeal

Watch the video on Face Book.

Someone who knows Telugu better than me, please provide a better translation than mine. Google’s translation is the worst!

Here is my take on it.

A 60-plus-year-old woman, a beggar stricken with leprosy, impressed a Hindu priest by her Christian prayers after he gave her some money.

When asked, she refused to take names of Hindu gods/goddesses.

The Hindu priest then challenges all Hindus to be zealous for their religion like this Christian is zealous for hers.

He was not disrespectful but appreciated her zeal for her religion.

His complaints:
1) the church she went/belonged to took money from her. They are doing their business very well. The religion lives on the money funded by beggars and lepers.

Well, we do not know the full story.
Did the church demand tithes even from this old lady? We don’t know. But she seemed all the more willing to give/pay tithes/offerings from what she had/earned as a beggar to the church.

2) Christianity is a copy/paste religion.

3) Christians and Muslims build their places of worship on Hindu places of worship

4) Why did Jesus not heal you of your leprosy?

5) India is the land of rivers: Godhavari, Ganga, Jamuna, Krishna.

But wherever Christianity and Islam is, there is no water

6) Hindus pray to any god. We are all inclusive. But this woman is not.

This (her zeal (and her religion) ), according to the priest, is poisonous.

7) Hindus do not even know how many chapters are in Bhagavad Gita.

8) In our temples, giving money is voluntary. But in Christianity, they dont even spare an old woman, a beggar.

He is a good man. He did not hurt anybody.

socialism vs capitalism – Prager U

Socialism vs capitalism.

This post is solely based on a video by Prager U.

The subtitle on this video by Prager University is quite catchy:

The Market Will Set You Free

Here is the video or the link thereto.

Graph: GDP per capita – From the book “The Wealth of Nations” by Adam Smith, A Scottish Economist and Philosopher ( June 1723 – July 1790). First published in 1776.

The most important graph in the world.

Jonathan David Haidt (/haɪt/; born October 19, 1963) is an American social psychologist, Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University‘s Stern School of Business,[1] and author. His main areas of study are the psychology of morality and the moral emotions.

Why does he say that?

Because he knows that there is no substitute for free-market capitalism as a promoter of human prosperity.

Trump Acquitted forever

Trump Acquitted is the article on the first page of many newspapers today.

Trump holds a thank you conference for all those who worked for or stood with the President through the ordeal.

Here is the video.

Trump calls it ‘total acquittal.’

Some people told (even prophesied) that Trump is a man of few words.

After watching this speech and many others like it, it makes it very clear he is not a man of few words.

His son, Trump Jr., calls himself long-winded. Wonder where he got it from…..

He talks a lot.

Japanese government bans all microwave ovens – fact check

Japanese government has banned all microwave ovens by the end of 2019 – a fact check

A post on Whats App, a social media app for mobile devices has gone viral.

The post is regarding the Japanese government announcing ban on all microwave ovens by the end of 2019.

I received it today in my Whats App android app on a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 through a relative who lives in India who uses ‘internet for Whats App.’

This is a limited connection/bandwidth to internet over the air exclusively for Whats App users. Costs about $4 a month.

Immediately I said to myself: This sounds suspicious. I need to do a research on it instantly.

So, this post is a research or fact check of a viral post on a social media app.

My very first page of results for “Japan Microwave” on Google answered the question with a big ‘NO’ or ‘FALSE’ from multiple fact check organizations or websites.

They are Snopes (May 3, 2019), India Times, AFP( May 13, 2019), Rappler (Oct 22, 2019), Research Gate, Who, You Tube (Jan 22, 2020), Alt News, Quora, Medium (May 17, 2019).

In that order. This is just the first page of results on Google!

I said, okay, that’s enough. This is fake.

Just looking at the date of publication of this fact check on some of the above listed website, it is obvious that it has been viral from over 7 months.

None of the Whats App users ever bothered to check the facts before sharing. Ridiculous.

The original post was published by a Russian Satirical website.

This is an instance where a satirical (joke) post was taken for real.

Let me close with a rhetorical question.

People, when will you stop being Sheeple?

Paula White

Paula White, is the spiritual adviser to the president, Donald J Trump.

There is a post circulating on Facebook in which Paul White is quoted as saying something weird.

we command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now

Quote of Paula White circulating on the internet.

Here is the full quote based on the video on youtube.

Let pride fall. Let pride fall. In the name of Jesus, we command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now. We declare that anything that is conceived in satanic womb, that it will miscarry. He will not be able to carry forth any form of destruction, any plan of harm

Paula White in a meeting

When I first saw this on Facebook, I thought somebody just made it all up.

But, I was wrong. I found the video in which she says the exact thing word for word.

Here is the video from Youtube.

I do not know when or where she said this.

Some one in the comment section on that YouTube video, tried to explain this way ….

Carnal will never understand spiritual ! She is not talking about babies she is talking about the plans and agendas of Satan and his kingdom to be miscarried. Satanic wombs are the people Satan uses to carry out his agenda.

Yolanda Galloway https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPajZZbGBrGIMK4zwf38fGA

Is Yolanda Galloway right? May be. Cannot confirm until I find the full video this excerpt (just 19 seconds) is taken from and circulated all over the internet.

Here is a video (not 100 percent similar to that of White) of another pastor ‘casting out’ a false pregnancy! Dono what to make of it. Very weird.

Here, I found the video of Paula White that show a little more context.

It does sound like she is talking symbolic.

This video by “Christian Preaching” has its comments turned off.

I hate it when people turn off comments on their videos on YouTube. What are they afraid of?

Corona Virus from Wuhan, China

The Corona Virus from Wuhan, China is rapidly spreading like a plague!

The Chinese government lied about its seriousness and tweaked statistics in their reports to the world outside. This is a communist regime. Can you expect any better?

A nurse from China tweeted “the actual impact could 30 times higher, than what the Chinese government has revealed” (paraphrasing).

The Israeli government says the virus probably spread from the bio lab in Wuhan, China.

As of today, there have been more than 60 deaths from the virus.

Two cases have been identified in Texas. One of them was found negative later.

Sources: WBAP, a news/talk radio station in Fort Worth, Texas.

More about the virus:

https://news.yahoo.com/everything-know-wuhan-coronavirus-185100983.html

According to a Situation Report from the WHO, there have been 282 confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV across four countries (China, Thailand, Japan, Korea) with 51 cases of severely ill people who are presenting with at least one of the following: dyspnea, a respiratory rate of 30+ bpm, hypoxemia, or chest x-rays showing multi-lobar or pulmonary infiltrates that are progressing rapidly (“more than 50 percent within 24-48 hours”).

See link above

It spreads without symptoms. That makes it even more dangerous.

US has not issued a panic alert yet.

According to Tucker Carlson (last Friday), it spread through raw flesh consumption of snakes and bats in/from Wuhan Wet Market.

money in your wallet multiplies

Money in your wallet! Watch it multiply!

Money in their wallet multiplies as the man of god Charles Ibrahim prays for believers in a church in India.

In this video, money for some multiplies in their wallet. For some, they get an SMS confirmation from their bank of an immediate transfer (balance) even as the man of God prays.

This happenned in Paul Thangaiah’s church in 2018 which is in Indira Nagar, Bangalore, India.

I never met him in person. But did hear a lot about him when I was in Bangalore, India.

Who is Charles Ibrahim?

Charles Ibrahim is a Christian Minister heading “Arena of Liberty Internation” ministry based in/from Jeppestown, Johannesburg.

Calls himself a Prophet on his Facebook handle.

Claims in this video

SMS notification of a transfer / balance

In this video, Ibrahim claims to ‘cancel the debt of believers.’ A revival of prayer. He further claims ‘Miracle money is appearing everywhere.’

In a group of 200+, it is highly possible for a few to get SMS from their bank within that hour. That’s not a surprise.

In the testimony of the first person, who claimed he got about 50,000+ India Rupees, it was obvious that it was a notification of balance/transfer.

He claims it was a transfer from another bank (HDFC) account which he had closed about 3 years ago. That’s another possibility. Not a miracle.

No followup investigation whatsoever. This is a problem with almost all claims of miracles. Nobody follows up with their miracle receivers. Nobody verifies the claims. No supporting documents. No disclaimers from parties involved.

No one verified with this person or his bank. None called the bank to verify. Will HDFC accept it? Could that be an error on the part of the bank? Or, was it his own money from another bank to begin with?

No answer.

Money gets added into to this person’s wallet.

Another person (pony tails) claims to have received new currency notes in his wallet.

Yet again, there is no followup investigation. No body asked him if his parents, friends, or family placed that money in his wallet?

No answer.

YouTube video comments turned off

Oh, by the way, the comments for the following video is closed or disabled.

Why is that? Why won’t he allow people to add their ‘praise the Lord’ in the comments? That is what most believers do at the sight/smell of a miracle.

Oh, I get it. It is because he doesn’t want to see any critical / negative comments or an expose of a magic that this is.

By the way, in all the articles/videos I made/posted on YouTube or my blogs, I never disable(d) commenting by others. I have nothing to hide and am open to criticism or correction.

Ok, enough talking, watch it for yourself. Here is the video.
