Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Destruction of Humanity Pending??? Again???

It's always been known to me, I don't know how, and now is becoming accepted knowledge by the average person that there existed civilizations, countries, societies, people deep in the mists of time past, during and before the last ice age. One theory is that the end of the ice age resulted in the end of that civilization or society. Some time ago I did a post on the discovery of a city off the coast of India. If interested you can look in my archives, the article was posted on Saturday 4/3/10.   The underwater archaeological site that could be more than 9,000 years old was discovered about 30 miles west of Surat in the Gulf of Khambhat (Cambay) in northwestern India.  Think about it, at least one city that existed maybe 4000 years more or less before the first acknowledged civilization in "known" history was created. There are more of course, discovered and undiscovered. But if there is just one, it indicates if not proves that prevailing theories are at least incomplete, if not wrong.
Many people have asked, ok, if these mythological civilizations and cities and cultures really existed. With their advanced buildings, weapons, transportation, homes and business's, personal effects, etc. Where are they? Did they use electricity? How did they generate it? Did they have cars, trucks, buses, trains, airplanes? Did they use oil, diesel, gasoline? How did they get it?  Machinery to manufacture, made of metal? What metal? How did they find it, make it, turn it into macinery, lubricate it, fix it?  These and other questions are obvious, but where are the answers? Where are if nothing else remnants? Why are there only stone, stone buildings, stone tools, stone, stone, stone?
Well one answer is that in libraries, for instance the library of Alexandria, there were alleged to be books, in the form of scrolls, tablets, who knows for sure, of history going back thousands of years. How many thousands unfortunately we have no way of knowing now. There were others but Alexandria is said to be the largest number of books of it's time. It's destruction meant nothing to most people of that time, just as the destruction of let's say the Library of Congress would mean nothing to most today. People haven't changed much.  But, it was a destruction of more than a library, even more than the books, it was destruction of history.
Another answer, not a great one maybe, but an answer is the program on the History channel called "Life After People".   It's a television documentary series where scientists and other experts speculate about what the Earth might be like if humanity no longer existed, as well as the impact humanity's disappearance might have on the environment and the artificial aspects of civilization. Lets take a look at a little:This is what happens 150-300 years after there are no people.

The next one is 500-1,000 years with no people.

Finally 10,000 years after people are gone.

Of course this isn't the perfect answer, because some people did survive whatever happened, whether it was a flood (the prevailing myth), earthquake, tsunami, polar or crust shifting, or even all of the above. People did survive. I read that scientists have determined that based on dna we all are decended from a single woman. Mitrocondial Eve, and all men are decended from a single Man Y chromosone Adam. Which isn't to say that there weren't other women and men alive at the time, there were or probably were. But according to this theory
science is able to trace a humans alive today through mitrocodial dna, which is allegedly only passed on by the mother to a single woman, alive possibly 150-200,000 years ago in Africa.
Of course the Bible says something similar. Noah, his wife and sons with their wives survived. I don't remember any grandchildren but there probably were. Supposedly these were the only humans that survived. If true, then we, all people today, are decended from Noah, and through him from an unknown woman, Eve, who lived in the far distant past. Since the story of Noah happened in Africa or the Middle East who can say really?
Personally I think pre-historically man was everywhere, like today, but that the land was different, ie on large continent (Pangea), or different continents the cradle could have been anywhere. 
There is a story or myth that Lhasa, the capital of Tibet and the home of the Dali Lhama for centuries, was one day a town on the beach, and overnight, due to this or another disaster, was a town high in the Himalayas. Could the Himalayas shoot up overnight?  I don't know, I doubt it, but the story says they did. I know, off subject.
Is the destruction of humanity pending? It's starting to look that way but you have to admit it isn't the first time. But we have war in the middle east, natural disasters happening daily it seems, the most recent the earthquakes and tsunami in Japan, economies around the world going in the toilet. Most end days scenarios from Revelation on have all these and more. On top of that the Maya's calender say the end of the age or end of days, take your pick, come up Dec 2012. In eastern cultures, and others, the myths for lack of a better word tell us that there have been four ages, we are in the 4th, what the Greeks called the Iron Age, or the Hindu and Vedic called the Kali Yuga or Age of Kali. At the end of each of the first three ages humanity was destroyed, and the world was started over. As I said we're in the fourth now and less than a year from the end date of the Maya calender. It'll be interesting to see if something, anything, happens, or if it turns out to be another T2K, much ado about nothing at all.
