If that was under proper Christianity, Europa would have saved and better than any cultures in the world.The Illuminati or Israelis whom beleiveing the One eyed God or Antichrist are the dangerous to any religon. however said and done even the Satanicchurch.com also believe at the end a Creator though they belive the budhism as their base… their God is KABBALA whom sitting like Lord Buddah. there is a huge connection to this, its damn dangerous.. be careful of Budhiam, Illuminati and Kabbala. this will turn to Athiest .. you will start thinking like Burmise and Sinhalse

    Science, Investigation and Reason triumphs Myths.

    Thank you natural philosophers, Islamic Scientist who values reason over revaluation, , Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton and a host of others.

    When will people give up Nibbana, Nirvana, Samsara, Rebirth, Hell, Heaven, Limbo and Purgatory Myths and put an end to the Hegemony of Priests, Monks, Mullah, and Ulama who are manipulated by the rulers to control the people?
