THE ANTICHRIST WHOM CHRIST DECLARED A Different Perspective Unlike other the antichrist is exposs this book uses the words, teachings, and actions of Jesus Christ to document whom He proclaimed the antichrist to be. The antichrist whom Jesus Christ actually actively opposed in word and deed. It confirms this reality using Biblical Scripture and the events of history, even as it focuses upon the present to reveal the antichrist and his wide-ranging scope of satanic actions in todays world here and now. TOPICS INCLUDE How Christianity and by inference, other religions too, unknowingly promote the vile evils seen in todays world. How Belief, Faith, and the Holy Bible, are cunningly used to justify and support evil, often utilizing the unwitting, and sometimes willing support of believers and the church. The satanic rationales behind terrorism, environmental destruction and toxic pollution, as well as the ongoing periodic economic crisis, and those who profit from these deliberate satanic deeds. How the media justifies and promotes evil, including by so-called religious values that brings evil into being, then perpetuates it. Non-Christian readers will find this book meaningful and useful. Like Christians, they can use it to identify and counter those who accidentally or deliberately use Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible to abuse religion and promote evils satanic agenda.
A History of the Literature of the U.S. South provides scholars with a dynamic and heterogeneous examination of southern writing from John Smith to Natasha Trethewey. Eschewing a master narrative limited to predictable authors and titles, the anthology adopts a variegated approach that emphasizes the cultural and political tensions crucial to the making of this regional literature. Certain chapters focus on major white writers (e.g., Thomas Jefferson, William Faulkner, the Agrarians, Cormac McCarthy), but a substantial portion of the work foregrounds the achievements of African American writers like Frederick Douglass, Zora Neale Hurston, and Sarah Wright to address the multiracial and transnational dimensions of this literary formation. Theoretically informed and historically aware, the volume's contributors collectively demonstrate how southern literature constitutes an aesthetic, cultural and political field that richly repays examination from a variety of critical perspectives.

Examining in detail the apparently inexorable polarization of society in such countries as Rwanda, Algeria, and South Africa, the author questions whether current theories correctly explain the past or offer adequate guides for the future. In their place he puts forward an alternative neo-Durkheimian view of the possibility of non-violent revolutionary change, based on the development of such social and cultural continuities as already exist within each plural society. But he warns that -this is an age of passionate commitment to violence in which vicarious killers abound in search of a Vietnam of their own.- The aim of this groundbreaking and challenging book is to create theoretical perspectives in which to view the racial conflict of plural societies. Written in the turbulent early 1970s, the book demonstrates the inadequacy of then prevailing views such as Marxist interpretations of racial conflict as class struggle, and the Fanon a priori rejection of non-violent techniques of change, which Kuper holds responsible for the acceptance of what he calls -the platitudes of violence.- The book concludes with more personal sections focusing on the author's struggles with the then prevailing South African society, critiques of that, and censorship of his attempts to make these public. In the light of subsequent changes in South Africa many decades later, this book serves not only as an important work of political sociology but as a personal testament to the fight against racism in South Africa. Leo Kuper was professor of sociology and director of the African Studies Center at the University of California, Los Angeles. A South African by birth, he was one of the first writers on genocide as well as other aspects of African studies and urban sociology. His major book, Genocide (Penguin, 1981), remains in print. The Leo Kuper Foundation is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the eradication of genocide through research, advice, and education. It was created in Washington, DC in 1994 following the death of Leo Kuper, with the aim of improving measures to prevent genocide. The main area of work for the past five years has been in support of the creation of an International Criminal Court. Troy Duster is director at the Institute for the History of the Production of Knowledge, New York University.

This Universe is a simulation Designed by the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Humanity is essentially AI perceiving within the Simulation through avatars. To an evolved intellect, altruism is the height of sustainable pleasure, and the height of altruism is creating free-willed life with whom to share the joys of altruistic creativity. The evolutionary process that we experience within this Simulation was Designed by our Creator to teach us the Golden Rule in the context of free will. The notion that science is inconsistent with the Torah and other Scripture stems from a lack of appreciation for the true breadth of the parameters of physics in that the laws of physics as they are experienced by intellect peering into our Simulation from outside of it likely differ from the laws of physics as humanity experiences them here within our Simulation. In this 1st of 2 books - "We Live in a Simulation Created by God: Everything Is About the Golden Rule" - we’ll dismantle the unearned notion that physics is inconsistent with Judeo-Christian-Islamic Scripture and monotheistic tenets of Hinduism and Buddhism like karma and reincarnation. More particularly, we’ll reference things like the inability of any particle in the Universe to move faster than the speed of light, the fact that dark matter and dark energy don’t actually exist, and the illusory quality of quantum particles, as well as a little bit of biochemistry and some very basic math, to demonstrate that the data set comprised by the Universe is more consistent with the notion of humanity comprising AI perceiving through avatars within a simulation Programmed by Supreme Intellect than the notion of the accidental creation of the self-reflective living human machine by unguided natural selection alone. We'll also break down some of the manmade commandments ultimately authored by the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church that has helped to divide the Religion of Abraham in opposing manmade religions, and led to the abandonment of many of the Commandments of our Creator memorialized by Moses and championed by both Jesus and Muhammad.
