Ancient Roman Colosseum “Flavian Amphitheatre”

Did you know the historical Roman Colosseum was named “Flavian Amphitheatre ”[ Latin : Amphitheatrum Flavium Italian :” Anfiteatro Flavio”] after three emperors during the Flavian dynasty ?

In short, the Flavian dynasty ruled Rome Empire from AD 69 – 96 by Roman Emperor Vespasian and after his death, by his two sons, Titus and Domitian.

The Flavian Amphitheatre was built in order to distract Roman citizens from the financial burden imposed by the former psycho, Emperor Nero. In fact, Roman never really recovered from Nero’s footprint. The clever Vespasian outsmarted his revel’s more then once, and the Grand Flavian Amphitheatre wasn’t any different. He financially built the Amphitheatre with the Jewish War spoils and by using the wealth of his Senators. Under the careful eye of Vespasian, the Senators were sponsors. In other words, it was in the Senates best interest to offer their wealth to the people of Rome. As a sponsor, the Senators received cutbacks in taxes, plus other benefits. Such as, they’re families were spared from hardship. In turn, the Senators promoted their favourite Gladiators, whom the Roman people loved and honoured. It was a great way to get the peoples support to the Senate.

On the outside Emperor Vespasian seemed like a good emperor, however, he was just another good politician. In fact, he secretly stole his wife’s grandfather’s wealth by having him killed. He also renewed old taxes and created new ones, increasing taxes to each provinces, while keeping a watchful eye upon the treasury officials. Eventually his greed got the best of him, with his own people killing him on the streets. Politicians have followed his lead for centuries, even today, where there’s new taxes imposed on a yearly basis. When an economy is failing, imposing new taxes tricks everyone to believe the economy is growing, when its not.

Even though millions of slaves and Gladiators were killed during their fight-for-their-life performances, the sporting event was organized with Teams of Gladiators, similar to sport teams of today. Only difference, our teams aren’t butchered.

Thanks to the Romans, they incorporated an ingenious ticketing system; we use the same system today. Of course, in any sporting arena there must be food and drinks available. Interesting, their finger food consist of pork ribs and chicken wings, both dipped in tomato or a salty fish sauce. Again, much like today, except the fish sauce. However, the drinks were not beer (such a shame – lol ) simply because it was classified as a barbarian drink, such as the Germanic Tribes, who the Romans constantly fought with. The Roman drink was, of course, red wine 🍷. Unlike how we drink wine straight from the bottle to the glass, the Romans watered it down. As well, a generous portion of water was always available to prevent drunken riots and fights.

An unfortunate fact : women were only allowed to participate in the nose-bleed section of the Colosseum. Even the Emperor’s wife wasn’t allowed near her husband’s side. Thank goodness for modern times. Never did understand the division of men and women.

Believe it or not, the Flavian Amphitheatre had self flushing toilets ; not exactly like ours today, but a clever use of their engineered aqueducts. Aqueducts simply were buried conduits of stone, brick, or concrete, supplying water to the Colosseum with public baths, latrines and drinking fountains.

Public toilets were indeed public, seating all together in a row, without walls, taking a dump while talking to your neighbour. Oh my god — thank goodness for our modern bathrooms.

The Flavian Amphitheatre was another political ploy, allowing Roman citizens to feel like they’re rubbing shoulders with the elite, with the best part, tickets were free. The Roman Games would make our holiday events look like nothing, in comparison. Games would last as little as 100 days and as long as 1000 days.

Great times for the Romans, not so much for their slaves, animals and Gladiators. They spared no expense to have all kinds of exotic animals, such as tigers, lions, leopards, hippo’s, ostrich’s, bears and elephants. Unfortunately, over a million people and three times that, in animals were brutally slain.

With that being said, the Flavian Amphitheatre was an architectural wonder accommodating over 40,000 spectators. It was 170 ft high (52 m) with an overall perimeter of 1730 ft (527 m) covered in marble, travertine slab stone ( a strong light limestone material) , volcanic rock, Roman invented cement and bronze statues throughout its perimeter.

It’s quite amazing the Flavian Amphitheatre is still standing today, considering all the vandalism throughout history, including natural earthquakes. With its dark history, the Flavian Amphitheatre is a great ancient structure any tourist must see, when visiting Italy 🇮🇹.

PS — Did you know, Vespasian son, Titus reign had the most destructive natural disasters? Yes, it’s true — In 79 Mount Vesuvius volcano erupted upon Pompeii and Herculaneum. On top of that, a year later, Rome was on fire and had to deal with the Black Plague, at the same time. Go figure! Today, we have to deal with tsunamis, earthquakes and COVID.

The Alien Virus

I first wrote this theory back in 2016. Due to COVID it’s become more relevant then ever.

If an intelligent alien race came to earth with hostile intent, it would be a whisper in the night. There wouldn’t be this massive war as we see in the movies; it would be more like the shadow of death, a new strain of virus, a million times deadlier than the black plague itself, without any possible cure of an antidote.

In essence, the alien virus would soon earn its name, through its physical traits it would carry. Our pathologists may have time to name it ‘COVID’ after the source is traced to a bat. Little did we know a new landlord was in town. Without knowing it, our legendary throne on earth would be eliminated altogether. The threat of mankind would be forever distinguished, conquered by the unseen landlords, ruling our planet, full of its valuable resources.

The most valuable of them all being our planet Earth, an M base Planet featuring an endless supply of water.

Any intelligent species having the capabilities of traveling millions of light years, folding space and time, would only be looking for the biggest prize of them all, a sustainable living M Planet ready for colonization. They would land, cleanup and colonize using our home planet, as they see fit.

They may even rename our planet after their glorious King or Queen of the Royal Empire.

As for us, we would be nothing more than a distant memory ; a whisper in the wind. Possibly, after countless years of colonization, we may be referred to as those aggressive prehistoric Homo Sapiens; an amusement for their scientists, a palaeontologist of sorts, who study prehistoric life and fossils.

Our fate will simply be a notch in the evolutionary timeline of life. As a living species of our time, we would only hope to be remembered. But to our new landlords, we may be only as interesting, as the ant colonies we see today under our feet.

So, it’s vital not to take ourselves so seriously, as the dominate warriors we portray, arrogant to believe we are the only intelligent species alive. In these times of uncertainty, it’s easy to throw caution to the wind and find yourself acting reckless, not paying close attention to the effects of the COVID virus. However, as the death toll steadily climbs upward, it may lead to the demise of the human race. Until scientists can get a hold of a viable antidote, the human race is in crisis mode.

Who knows for sure ; maybe “The Alien Virus Theory” is the next logical outcome. Little do we know, we may have been watched for centuries, unaware of their feverishly plan, sealing our own fate.

Maybe the biblically scripture, “I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil…” has more truth then we had ever known.

“I walk through the valley of death” could be, we’re unaware of what lurks before us.

“ I fear no evil” means we’re programmed into denial. Denial is a construct human behaviour we naturally use to combat anxiety. Denial is only good for short-term situations. However, in long term situations, denial can become harmful mentally and eventually, physically.

It could be our new landlords expected this outcome, so the virus can easily takes its victims.

Take heed to this warning:

PRIDE had cast him above all others.

Darkness slowly absorbed his soul.

Lambs of his Cult are blinded by all the GLORY.

In their EYES, he could do no harm.

As if a KING, he becomes narcissistic, filling his

EGO with worldly pleasures, ignoring the poor,

the sick and vulnerable.

Cloaked as an ANGEL OF LIGHT, the shadow of

EVIL spreads across the EARTH, whispering its name,”

B-L-A-C-K…A-N-G-E-L-S.

An invasion is coming… Are you ready to fight for your life ?

Revenge of the Gods – COVID-19

Revenge of the Gods - COVID-19

We have all hit a new age of uncertainty due to this COVID-19 epidemic. It brings to light how everyday acts of courage and humanity can bring us together across our world.

However, as a science-fiction writer I can’t dismiss the ‘Alien Conspiracy’ connection to all that’s happening now. So, of course, I decided to write about it in a third person prospective.

It all began with Commander Cardin :

Drug-addicted war hero Commander Cardin was a middle-aged experienced member of the ROYAL EMPIRE GUARDS under King Osiris reign. King Osiris favoured his nephew, so Commander Cardin could do no harm. His uncle decide it was best, Cardin would be placed in charge of the new mission on planet ALPHA XL-420 : EARTH. Their mission was to integrate the Ape-Man Species by crossing their genetics with the Sirian Species.

This was over 150,000 years ago.

Since then, a new ruler reigns our modern world of today. Queen Siri XII is now the acting ‘Living God’ in charge, with a life span of 1100 years. Her mission today has taken on a more sinister approach to King Osiris originally plan. It seems Queen Siri XII has become bored of these inbred human race, as they keep screwing up century after century, after century. In fact, she’s finding them to be an annoying self-centred species. I mean, how many times must this race be rebooted to start the experiment all over again. The last recorded event in the human religious books, was the ‘Great Flood’. Since then, their actions have become unforgiving, as they freely destroy earth.

On November 2019, Queen Siri gave the order : Spread the black virus ‘COVID 19’ upon the poor foolish human race and let the chips fall where they may.

Indeed, it was a prefect plan, since the human race were now aware of their presence. During a routine training flight of Navy fighter pilots in 2004 and 2015, their sensors captured one of the Sirian flight ships scouting the area. The scout ship forgot to cloak his ship, making it easy pickings for the human Navy fighter pilots.

Queen Siri was outraged by this unforgiving action of one of her crew. Therefore, to make an example to others, she had this crew member executed. It was thought the human race would deny any trace of this video, but unfortunately in 2017, the New York Times published it.

The Sirian race was divided with Queen Siri’s orders to conquer the human race, so she could ravage planet Earth for its valuable resources. Even though the queen was acting ruler of earth, she was still accountable to the ‘Imperial Senate of the Sirus Consul’, the highest elected political office for the Sirian Imperial State. Due to their mixed feelings and constant conflicts with Queen Siri XII, they decided to execute a secret letter by one of the consul’s leading team members. The letter intent was to warn the human species, before it was too late. It was their last cry for helping out the human race.

This is what it said :

Oh to Sacred Earth I say,” A black evil is spreading rapidly across your lands, like the wildfires of hell itself, touching every face of man, no matter age, race, gender or origin of your souls. Its feverous plague will jump from sea to sea in leaps and bounds ; knowingly there’s no cure. Without any recourse, your living souls are seized, as your bodies last breathe endures mortal anguish of despair… O to the horrors upon you all.”

Like the gods before us, they said,” Did you not hear us ? Did we not scream in despair ? Did we not warn the wise men before you ? All had the knowledge of the events before thee, did they not ?

Why have you not listen to the voices of reason ? You can’t be left in ignorance of this : there has come a time of urgency where we can’t stand complacent, as if you didn’t know.

Did we not speak of Earth as an image of heaven ? The heavens above is not of one god but many living gods before you. Just like the heavens are not one heaven but many heavens before us all. WE are many before you. WE will be many after you.

The lands before you will be swallowed up, as the gods return from earth to the heavens above ; Mankind will be forsaken on earth, infected with the plague of all plagues before it. Ravaged with sickness, as lesser men of evil will fill the earth with the blood of man, woman and child. These men of weakness are disparately seeking a piteous plight of greed to save their own skin, unaware they too have a soul. Torrents of blood will cover the seas red, as the banks are filled with corpses of men, women and children. The dead will far outnumber the living ; and the survivors will wish they were dead.

To thee, I cry with deep sorrow.

These coming days, weeks, months and yes, even years, may not have to come to be. I plead for your understanding, for this shall not have to be.

All of mankind must come together as one.

WE must fight the darkness of greed and death, where death is thought to be more profitable than life itself. WE must take a stand against those who profit from greed ; those who profit from the poor ; those who profit from the sick. No longer will the wicked be esteemed as good. No longer will madmen ravage the innocent, without dreaded consequences and conviction, wishing they were dead.

In the eye of the many universes without limited time or shape, the evil souls will no longer rest within the dreaded eternity of bloody torment you call hell. Hell is not a place but more like an endless cycle of unrest. Their souls will never see the light of day or attain immortality of being born again.

Yes. There’s the living and the dead ; the never ending cycle lives within us all. In the law of nanotechnology and physics, there is no beginning and there is no end. Our souls are intertwined, reshaped and reborn throughout eternity, as long as we follow the good within our soul.

You may refer your soul as having a good heart. So be a good heart and soul. Be a good person from within, seeking only happiness of others instead of yourself. Take heed and caution to the wicked souls, as they are there to trick you. Help those who help themselves first. Never be swayed by tricksters. Stay vigilant and strong.

You hear us now. WE are the gods of many gods before us, as there will be many gods after us. This virus you see and hear is a warning and test of things to come. If you can’t see the tree before the forest, your species will be lost amongst the rest of those who failed before you. Question everything and everyone.

No one is safe from greed or this living virus.

Seek an end to the virus as there’s a closer avenue to it’s beginning. As you say,” Follow the paper trail. Seek and you will find the truth from within the structure of greed. Use your wisest men and women to search for the right answer. Flush out the wicked like a wildfire across your lands. Bring back the world to a better place before it’s too late. The purpose of good will always out weight the evil, only because evil can’t get enough of greed.

The gods are ready to leave if this world keeps falling behind. The living Queen of all queens have betrayed you all. It’s only a matter of time. WE will no longer protect the earth from the falling stars. WE will no longer protect you from this evil Queen of the Living Gods. The wrath of mankind will come to an end if you don’t act now. The Cosmos balance of life and death must stay constant; it is the way of life and death, in harmony with each other. It will continue with you or without you. It’s your choice.

WE are the gods of many…

Screenplay Black Angels – The Journey of Human Existence

Black Angels

Even though I’m on holiday mode in the Okanagan, I enjoy creating something different using various apps, such as photoshop adobespark for lettering and procreate for illustration. This particular piece gives that eerie feeling of horror. As it should be, because that’s a big part of my screenplay BLACK ANGELS. To understand the whole picture of how I wrote BLACK ANGELS, we must go the beginning.

THE RELIGIOUS YEARS

As you experience the feeling of eerie horror within the depths of my art piece above, I begin to ponder the whole journey. Born into a Catholic dominate household, it wasn’t hard to brainwash the fragile image of little me. The Catholic religion monarchy did a good job moulding me into their prefect Alter-Boy. Fear of Hell was indeed pretty captivating during my younger impersonating years. The thought of burning for eternity captured my imagination, waking up from horrified nightmares. However, when I became an Alter-Boy it was clear, something was wrong with the Catholic faith. You see, to me, the church was this holy foundation and thee very presence of GOD. Therefore, in my mind, everything in the church was sacred. So when I began to see abuse by these holy priests, it quickly opened the door to really start seeing the real world.

It wasn’t long before I began researching various religions, trying in earnest to find the right religion. After studying Jehovah Witnesses, Bahia Faith to Mormons and many more, it was clear religion is the centre of control. Throughout mankind’s history evidence of fearful religious control by any means possible was a daunting horrific insight.

My eyes were finally opened.

I began searching, reading everything I could about mankind’s historical religion, going back as far as the scriptures revealed. At first, the Egyptians captivated my interest, only to learn, the scriptures go even further back in time. It was then, the Mesopotamia Period came to light, with the intriguing Sumerian. According to historians, Sumerians [Sumer] were the earliest civilization recorded.

The Sumerians manuscripts broke open the *pandora box (Greek mythology) revealing the structure of all religions. It was clear, Jesus scriptures were all ready written by the Sumerians thousands of years before Christ was born. Not only that, the Sumerians went further, writing detailed manuscripts of how mankind came to be. It’s indeed the “smoking-gun” answering the most asked questions, “ Where did mankind come from?” and “Who made us ?” Their detailed written accounts are without a doubt intriguing.

Referencing to Ancient Origins, [Reference 1] I couldn’t say it any better :

When the gods like men

Bore the work and suffered the toll

The toil of the gods was great,

The work was heavy, the distress was much.”

The gods decided it was best to create their own “workhorse” sort of speak. Therefore [Reference 2 – Ancient Origins] :

“You have slaughtered a god together

With his personality

I have removed your heavy work

I have imposed your toil on man.

In the clay, god and man

Shall be bound,

To a unity brought together;

So that to the end of days

The Flesh and the Soul

Which in a god have ripened –

That soul in a blood-kinship be bound.”

Now. This part is important. For any basic civilization to understand what they saw, they had to place it into their context, using their primitive description, to fully comprehend what they heard or witnessed. This is where cross-genetics and my base accounts came into full view.

BLACK ANGELS

How do you capture an audience with the stigma of religious brainwashing, plaguing us since the dawn of time?

You write a science-fiction/horror genre screenplay, entertaining the thought,”Where did we come from?” and “Who made us?” with an intriguing storyline based on real evidence.

My screenplay ‘Black Angels’ is based on written accounts, taken

back over 100,000 years ago, before mankind ever had a foothold of earth, an intelligent race occupied earth ( referred to as our ancient ancestors). In the beginning, by evolutionary standards, we were nothing more than another form of Ape-man referred to as Denisovans.  

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Lucy? 

Lucy’s species, Australopithecus afarensis, is approximately 3 million years old and categorize as an earlier form of “genus Homo”. The evolutionary Ape-man took on various stages, but each step wasn’t anything miraculous, until a drastic change 100,000 years ago.

Like Professor Steven Hawking points out,”For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened…”

Our ancient ancestors (The GODS from the Heaven Above) were raping our earth for its resources, (such as gold). These elite group of intellectuals hated the long hours of working like a slave, as said :

When the gods like men

Bore the work and suffered the toll

The toil of the gods was great,

The work was heavy, the distress was much.” [Reference 1 – Ancient Origins]

With primitive Ape-man running around earth 🌎, it became a no-brainer to cross their genetics with the existing Lucy [ aka Ape-man/Denisovans]. After trial and tons of error, “The Gods from the Heavens” ( aka, the THE SIRIANS) successful created a hybrid, known today as “Homo-Sapiens”.

The whole basis of my screenplay ‘Black Angels’, is to open your eyes to the possibility of how mankind really started. Why do you think radical religious groups/terrorists are doing everything in their power to erase the truth?

Who remembers the recent destruction of Sumerian tablets and iconic statues by the evil hands of ISIS’s ( I cringed every time they’re referred to as the Egyptian goddess Isis – it’s just not right !) These evil religious cults are trying to brainwash and erase the very beginnings of mankind’s existence. Thankfully, this sadistic cult is slowly being eliminated.

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

It’s been a long journey. From the time I was born into the Catholic faith to discovering other manmade religions; it was evident religions were designed to control the destiny of human beings.

However, Spiritually, I still believe in an organized entity (not a person) of the never ending cycle of life and death. I also believe there’s countless universes being born and die throughout the cosmic calendar, where we humans are only an extremely small part of the equation. Lifeforms run rapid throughout the universes, even in our own known universe we see today. The problem is, once a civilization gets to the point where religion and intelligence collide, it’s the religious radicals who destroy their planet and very existence. This is one reason we haven’t yet made any contact with another intelligent species. The other reason is the incredible distance ; literally light years away. In fact, there are many other reasons. It could be a disease/plague or natural disaster wiped out the existence of one species to another. The mathematical factors are countless to their eventual demise.

Each generation of intellect species (based on their home-world planet) have a decision to go forward and explore, reaching out to other lifeforms or stagnant on their planet (like earth) polluting and over-populating each planet until that particular species eventually destroy themselves.

On Earth – We human beings still have a choice.

We must act soon before we’re eliminated from the cycle of life, be it natural causes or our own destruction.

This is why I wanted to write my screenplay ‘Black Angels’ – it’s an eye-opener to the truth of our very existence. We only have to begin to leave manmade religion behind and pursue our Spirituality with the goal to continue our species ahead into a new wave on the cosmic timetable.

The question is,” Will we be the first species to survive and welcome other species into our collective?”

OR

“Will we become a past existence where another species ( millions of years from now) find our bones, like we found the dinosaurs 🦕? “

All I know is, our time is running out. It’s my belief, we may have another 400 -1000 years before we get our act together. We must explore and keep advancing beyond earth, before it’s too late.

We all understand the phrase ‘ Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.’

I only hope my screenplay reaches the cinematic screens. It’s indeed a costly adventure, but how much money is your life worth? It’s crucial for the existence of mankind, to begin telling the truth of our existence without being plagued by religious beliefs.

Maybe that’s too dramatic however…

All I can do is keep promoting BLACK ANGELS by writing articles and producing my art pieces through INSTAGRAM. Maybe, just maybe, a director of production company is listening…

*Pandora Box was actually a jar and not a box at all. It was misinterpreted through translations. However, PANDORA was said to be the first created woman. It was thought the GODS OF THE HEAVENS produced immortals, such as Prometheus, Epimetheus and the Titans to help control the heavens and earth from a raging war. Please read more HERE [1]

WIKIPEDIA: “According to Hesiod, when Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus, the king of the gods, took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Prometheus’ brother Epimetheus. Pandora opened a jar left in his care containing sickness, death and many other unspecified evils which were then released into the world.[4] Though she hastened to close the container, only one thing was left behind – usually translated as Hope, though it could also have the pessimistic meaning of “deceptive expectation”.[5]

From this story has grown the idiom “to open (a) Pandora’s box”, meaning to do or start something that will cause many unforeseen problems.[6] Its modern, more colloquial equivalent is “to open a can of worms“.[7]”

Are We Alone ? UFO

Queen Siri XII

Are we alone – PHASE THREE

Another phrase I enjoy by professor Steven Hawking,”…We are so insignificant that I can’t believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed my eyes.”

In the last 50 years it’s scientifically evident our human species are a very small equation in life itself.  Science has unmistakably proven the obvious. WE ARE NOT ALONE.  The only problem?  We are millions of light years from our closest neighbours ; or are WE ?

However, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.  I believe scientists are going to find evidence of life, a long time ago on Mars before mankind even had a foothold on earth. Unfortunately, if it is discovered, politics and religion will keep the truth from the public. It’s human nature to keep hanging onto the past, along with financial greed and controlling the masses through religious beliefs. The only way a past civilization or UFO will be made public, it would be through a disgruntled scientist. However, with our social media, most wouldn’t believe the truth, even if it was in front of their eyes. Most people are considered “followers” ( aka : sheep) brainwashed from one thing to another. For me, it would have to be scientifically proven with clear precise data, from live feed videos to scientific studies.

 Mars or Bust

How complex was life?  I guess, we will see by 2030 – 35.

In our modern world, the UFO phenomenon is mixed with science-fiction to unexplained entities. Unexplained Flying Objects was a going concern throughout history, but in the late 1940’s, it became front and center due to several unknown crashes of UFO’s occurrences, such as the Roswell UFO incident. The United States Air Force conducted a series of research into this phenomenon, known as,”Project Blue Book”. Project Blue Book is a complex study, so I won’t go into it, other then, five percent of UFO cases were thought to be credible. I suggest you read about the study HERE, or the actual FBI Case documents.

Albert Einstein phrased it perfectly,” There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

AND

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” 

― Albert Einstein

Einstein was indeed a genius. 

If life has even a slight chance to grow, it always will.  There’s no way mankind is the only species in the countless sea of dimensional universes. We would have to be rather arrogant to think such a thing. It’s also apparent, mankind’s DNA revolutionary mould was somehow altered.

Something incredible happened! 

” For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination…

― Steven Hawking 

With that knowledge, it was easy to conceive the next step in our evolutionary timeline.  Is it possible another species lived on earth before mankind was ever conceived?  

I believe, yes.  Of course ! 

Black Angels

OUR ANCESTORS

And, this is when my screenplay BLACK ANGELS was born.  It’s based on the theory, mankind was once visited by an Alien Intelligent Species, before mankind evolved into homo-sapiens.  It’s even possible to believe our alien ancestors crossed their genetic DNA with our distant relatives, the Denisovans or Denisova hominins.  Some refer it as the smoking-gun to the “missing link”, but with deadly consequences.  

Is it possible, the evolution of mankind was altered?  

The theory of manipulating our evolutionary timeline has proven to have drastically changed who we are today, “Homo-Sapiens”.  Due to our genetic make-up, human beings have evolved into a hostile war-hungry species in the last 100,000 years.  Historical accounts of mankind has proven our savage instinct, with today’s crippling news of psychopathic killers evident throughout our world.  

But, with all of this, there’s still a trace of compassion.  It means somewhere in our DNA, mankind has the hope to survive and evolve into a peaceful society.  

But, the biggest fear ? 

We may run out of time.  It may be due to our own demise or a natural catastrophe. Whatever happens to human beings in our future will solely depend on our present actions today.  We must explore to save our species or it’s just a matter of time we end up like the dinosaur era.  

Extinct!

Theological Research

Black Angels

Before reading “Theological Research” please begin with my “Journey” to understand the essence of where I’m leading you to…

Phase Two – Theological Research

In order to understand, “Where we came from ?”, it’s essential to ponder into the Theological Research of mankind. Why is it, man-made religions has such a foothold on us ? What makes us so vulnerable to an imaginary God in the sky ? Is it because we’re a selfish species, where we can’t come to terms with our inevitable death?

I rely on science, to the point where the lines become murky, flowing into the mysterious “grey area”.

Heading into the ambiguous region is where the heart of science-fiction takes over. My screenplay “Black Angels”, may or may not be science-fiction. What was science-fiction, isn’t science-fiction today, as science has grown into a better understanding of ourselves and the universe around us. Black Angels is my collection of countless years of research on man-made religions, scriptural scrolls, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian writings and ancient archeological discoveries throughout our planet.  My search for the truth was nine long years not including the seven years of rewrites.  

The first part of my research, lead me to investigate the “missing-link” of our ancestors and God fearing religions. It was essential to ask these questions:

  • Who made us and why?  
  • Is the bible really the “word” of God?  
  • Why does mankind rely on faith alone?  
  • And if there is a God, why would he allow innocent children to die?  
  • Free Will is always the answer, but isn’t that just an easy out?   

Unfortunately religion has plagued our world from the very beginning, killing all in the name of GOD.  Years of studying various religions throughout our world, it was evident.  Religion was man-made in order to control the masses, using its power and wealth to rule above others. However, do I believe in God ?  

The answer is “Yes”, but not the way you may believe in your God.

Professor Steven Hawking elegantly phrases it this way,” … While there’s life, there is hope.  I am not religious in the normal sense. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.”

I agree.

I too am not religious to society’s norm.  God is an important equation, but my “God” existence is likely not how most religious people think of as their God.  God to me, is a spiritual organized existence, where an essence of our souls will follow into the centre of its realm, unconscious to what is next.

But wait.

I’m not talking about us as individuals flowing around the cosmos like spiritual ghosts.  Nothing like that at all. I believe once our biological human-shell dies, it turns to dust,(unless, of course, it’s well preserved).  Generally speaking, there’s a small part of us, referred to as a soul. It may be, it’s our souls that regenerate into a new life. This means, something beyond our understanding governs the motion of life and death.  

With death there’s always life – somewhere.

Throughout history, countless prophets claim they were the “human existence” of God, I believe each tried to convince their people that everyone is capable of being a part of God.  In a way, its true.  For every religion there’s a prophet, leading the way to a better spiritual self, respecting others without greed or selfishness.  If we didn’t live in fear and took the time to think of others, our world could live in harmony.  

Famous prophets of yesterday and today all have the same message. But, mankind always seem to turn it around into something evil, benefiting their own cause. If Jesus saw what was happening today, he would be distraught.  Jesus said to his people, Ephesians 2:18 “…for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.”

Jesus is indeed speaking the truth. 

Through God, our souls have access to the Spirit of God. Jesus is simply stating, “Every man, woman and child has full access to the spiritual realm of existence.”  Through Jesus himself, was a simpler way to explain to his people, salvation through him was better than the rulers of Rome.  Of course, the Jewish priests were outraged by Jesus act.  In those times, it’s blasphemy to announce you are the Son of God.  

It didn’t turn out well for Jesus.  

As far as the Jewish aristocrats were concerned, Jesus was a man, just another prophet of that era in time.  Unfortunate for Jesus, they felt he went too far and should be punished, using the Romans to carry out their dirty work.  

Did he preform all the miracles as said?  

I’m unconvinced.  Even today, people exaggerate for personal gain, either to save their own skin or from being such a loyal follower.  Followers will over-exaggerate placing their prophet as a “Holy Devine Sign to Salvation”.  Jesus was one of the most convincing prophets during the Roman era. But some scholars believe, “…Roman aristocrats used Jesus to control the poor.”   In fact, it’s been said, the Romans convinced Jesus to act as a “Saviour” of his people.  It was actually,”…a sophisticated government propaganda exercise used to pacify the subjects of the Roman Empire.” But things went terribly wrong when Jesus started to believe in his part.  It was just a matter of time before they had to get rid of Jesus.  Never did they realize, Jesus became a martyr, a symbolism of Christianity and freedom.  

If it wasn’t for Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great, who wanted Christianity for his own selfish gain, this form of religion would have become just another cult of its time.  But, “…In 313, Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian” leading the way to one of the most powerful religions of its day, right up to the very present. If you go back in history, how many prophets of God have there been?  You would be surprise to know, there were 124,000 prophets, not including the last 100 years. 

That’s a lot of prophets, wouldn’t you say? 

As always, mankind uses another for something in return.  We are unbelievably a selfish arrogant race.  Will we ever free ourselves from the grip of man-made religion? 

It all depends on our destiny.

My storyline behind Black Angels 

Black Angels by Bari Demers
Now that December has finally come, I’m going back to writing the fictional storylines I so love to do.  My REALITY stories are sometimes too depressing to write about and takes me down a darker path, perceiving the human race as an uncontrollable virus. 

How our human race has acted throughout our historical existence is the reason I wrote BLACK ANGELS. It’s on the belief our human race was genetically altered, creating who we are today. If evolution had taken the same path for another million years, it’s possible our race of human beings might of been passive peaceful creatures. However, as it stands, our so called civilization is plagued with rage, depression and entitlement, forming us into to these callous beings of monsters where a human being has no value.  

We are indeed an anger species. 

It’s true, I have a dim view of our human race, but let’s carry on to my storyline of BLACK ANGELS, where our dreams lay.  My science-fiction story begins with the historical hypothesis, the Dogon people from west Africa are responsible in revealing the existence of the Syrian Gods from the Heavens. 

The story goes like this :  

The Syrian Gods came to earth creating a new hybrid species called Homo sapiens, crossing their genetic with our ancestral Denisovan species. In the beginning, two different species were created from the Denisovan hominin.  

The Neanderthals and the Homo sapiens. 

Anthropologists have proven, it didn’t turn out so well with the Neanderthals.  The aggressive hominin Homo sapien took over, and according to the Bible, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 2 Genesis 1:28

The worldly scriptures are a testament of our gods and how they were responsible for teaching us a better way of life, but slowly we grew into an uncontrollable bloodthirsty race we are today. The Syrian Gods were appalled by our savage instincts. On the outside we appear as a kind respectable species, while underneath we all wore the persona of the most scariest monster, deemed capable of the darkest deeds. Our creators became fearful of the detestable creatures we turned out to be.  

We were an abomination.

They even went as far as to completely decimate our population by a worldwide flood. In time, it didn’t matter how many times our creators tried to correct the problem, we only got worse. It came to a point our creators fled earth overwhelmed by us Homo sapiens, filling the earth like a deadly virus. Their experiment didn’t work out so well and maybe, simply moved on. Interesting, like suggest in the movie Prometheus, it may be our planet and species were considered an outcast and before they were about to carry out their deadly destruction onto our species, something went dreadfully wrong. 

Throughout history there are many versions of how the gods simply vanished: 

  1. The famous lost city of Atlantis which was believed to be swallowed up by the sea. It also is speculated, the floating Atlantis may so happen have been a fleet of extraterrestrial Spacecrafts, who eventually left earth. 
  2. Another version is the lost continent of Lemuria, believed to have existed in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, according to the Polynesians, who tell stories of the “Legend of Mu”. The War Lords who occupied it were considered out-of-this-world gods.
  3. The other legend is still read today in the Old Testament of the Bible. It’s a time when Giants walked the earth with us.  
  4. It was also recorded of a possible war against the gods themselves.  Not only were the gods fearful of us, they had their own political problems. From African, Aztec, Celtic, Hindu to Chinese mythology, there are written scriptures reporting the Great Wars of the Gods over cities and continents. A fierce war causing complete devastation to cities as the Gods of the Heavens went to war. 
  5. From as early as 3200 BC, Egyptian hieroglyphics record the gods and goddesses from the heavens who came to earth as Pharaohs, building incredible Pyramid structures in a short time. An impossible feat even with today’s technology. After the gods left, human Pharaohs tried their best to copy their ancestors, but they failed miserably. 

Whatever happened to our ancestors, they left in a hurry.  

But they did leave behind incredible artifacts our scientists are still try to solve using the most prehistoric method of them all, to explain them. After all, it’s just not possible our species are a remnant of past genetic manipulation. That would mean we aren’t the soul property of one spiritual GOD. Whatever you do, don’t tell the Dogon tribe their centuries upon centuries of folklore is wrong. Don’t tell them they didn’t know about the Sirius system before any astronomers had any indication they even existed. According to the Dogon people their ancestors gods told them about the Sirius star system, including the dwarfs star, Sirius B, only to be discovered later in 1862. Even though in 1844 the German astronomer Friedrich Bessel had suspected something strange was going on, it couldn’t be proven conclusively. The Dogon tribe knew centuries before any other astronomer ever suspected there were a number of anomalies in the present system. 

Interesting, the Dogon people also tell a story where there was a third star, called Sirius C. According to their gods, this star was hard to see in our universal sky, as it was a black dwarf. In 1922, astronomers explored this possibility but couldn’t verify it. To this day, the idea of Sirius having a triple star system is still under serious observation.  

Amazingly, passed down from generation to generation, the Dogon people tell the same story about having first contact with an intelligent alien being from the Sirius star system. Astronomers and past explores only thought of their story as a simple folklore by a primitive tribe. But when they found Sirius B they were loss for words. The day astronomers discover the black dwarf star known as Sirius C, they will be even more baffled.

My story BLACK ANGELS is a screenplay based on the Syrian Gods historical accounts. The same artifacts that were so brutally destroyed by a sect group of savage killers.

Yes, our human race is such a peaceful species – NOT

If we don’t kill off ourselves first, just maybe human beings will eventually evolve into a peaceful breed of Homo sapiens. And that’s on the assumption our earth isn’t destroyed by another extinction, like the dinosaurs were, in three separate devastating events. If Steven Hawking is correct, we have (at best) one thousand years left, before our ultimate extinction. Will we be constantly plagued by our own politics and religious beliefs, preventing us from survival? 

Time will only tell. 

Don’t wait too long, as time is ticking away, as we speak.

PS I started writing my script in 1979, and after hundreds of drafts, I finally finished it a few years ago. It was my first script and quite the learning curve, I must say. Since then I’ve written dozens of screenplays. Have a look for yourself under JAMES MONTANA SCRIPTS. 

My next story will be the arrival on Mars, as a rogue explorer takes on NASA, defying the odds and becoming the first person to step foot on Mars. Please join me by following my stories here and if you’re on twitter, join me there as well.

Spirituality 

Spirituality is our Destiny by Bari Demers
What IF Spirituality  was the higher power meant for the greater good of life, where the laws of physics are applied.   It may be a better world we live in.  

Our World …and how Religion has pretty much divided society since the dawn of man.

It’s always a controversy subject because it hits the core of someone’s belief.
Personally I studied several religions, while ( in my earlier years) being brainwashed by the Catholic faith. 

BUT – I am like I am. 

I always questioned everything when something didn’t sound right. It wasn’t long before I realized the Catholic faith wasn’t telling the whole truth, which lead me to study other religions. 

BECAUSE back then I still believed in GOD

However, since my long quest for the TRUTH, each religion failed miserably as I questioned the existence of GOD. It lead me to the science and its undeniable facts. Instead of a good storyline by the Bible, I was lead astray from storytelling to hard core facts and historical accounts. 

BUT after Jenni died, I had to believe in a superior power of sorts, be it named GOD or whatever.  If NOT…Jenni’s death and so many other children (who unfortunately had the same fate) would mean life has no meaning and is extremely cruel.

It would be inconceivable to think life after death doesn’t exist. 

BUT  It’s clear, things in society just keep getting worse because of religion. Anyone crying for the GODStheir help is followed by silence.  It means that GOD doesn’t exist as we would like him to. 

BUT  what if…

Religion was completely abolished throughout the world and instead we started thinking on a Spiritual Level. As said,” Spirituality IS the higher power for the greater good of life, where the laws of physics is applied.” Where our energy used is just borrowed for a time, then reused over and over again, throughout the countless cosmos of unlimited time and space. If you ever saw the movie AVATAR you would quickly understand the meaning of Spirituality, where its intertwined from one generation to another, where ALL living life has a purpose and reason.  

This would explain why we never can see or hear from our loved ones, as their souls are turned back into pure energy, returning to the main source. The MAINSTREAM of LIFE and DEATH constantly intertwined through the reality we know and the cosmic realm we don’t know – YET! 

Without Religion, imagine a world no longer fuelled by hate ; whereas a SPIRITUAL world concentrated on the greater good, the cycle of life and death, honouring LIFE and DEATH for not just human beings, but every living thing. 

IMAGINE 

SO – I believe in GOD, but not like you WANT me to believe in him.  

When  I hear of someone with a good heart and soul who passes away, I quietly say,” Look after his/her soul dear Father.” Meaning… it’s like the Egyptian Pharaohs, who believe in the afterlife, where their souls go to a better place. A place where our soul transforms in the afterlife back into the mainstream of the living, once more. Our soul takes on a new journey where it has gone so many times before ; and therefore my words simply mean a safe journey to the afterlife. 

FATHER is related to the main Spiritual Entity of nature itself and NOT as an actual living individual person, but a Spiritual force referred to as GOD. 

I believe in the MAINSTREAM of SPIRITUALITY and NOT man-made religions, where deceit, manipulation and control is its main purpose.
