Ooo, Tesla, cool. Here are some more from him:

"A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature."

"Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. "

Not sure, I think it was from here: http://www.quotesstar.com/quotes/a/a-single-ray-of-light-174324.html. I probably should have checked the original sources, as the Internet is notoriously prone to misattribution, but I haven't yet heard of Tesla being badly misquoted and got excited by seeing his quotes.

Longevity is only desirable if it increases the

duration of youth, and not that of old age.

The lengthening of the senescent period would

be a calamity.

The history of medicine is a history of conflict.

We should be making awards for infamy, but the

list would be too long and thus no one would

Science became an educated cadaver of thought, above which congregate expert players.  If the encyclopedia of the ignorance of the acknowledged authorities in the history were to be published, it would number many fat volumes.  Nothing will interest scientists anymore.  They are like oxen which feed off fenced-off pasture.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
 hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
 who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen

I've always wondered 1) what exactly this means, and 2) who made this up since the whole Jesus story is based on another story, and both are based on astrology.

1 because I don't really think forgiveness makes sense. I mean, do we really want to forgive Monsanto while we let them destroy our food supply? Obviously not. We want to stop them before it's not just salmon that's gmo, but beef, chicken, turkey, etc. And before it's not just pineapple and papaya, but all our fruits, veggies and nuts are gmo. Same thing applies to every aspect of corporations, government entities, and health care destroying our quality of life.

"Broadly speaking, the story of Horus is as follows: Horus was born on December 25th [S14] [S15] of the virgin Isis-Meri.[S16] [S17] [S18] His birth was accompanied by a star in the east [S19], which in turn, three kings followed to locate and adorn the new-born savior [S20] [S21] At the age of 12, he was a prodigal child teacher, and at the age of 30 [S22] [S23] he was baptized by a figure known as Anup and thus began his ministry [S24]. Horus had 12 disciples [S25] he traveled about with, performing miracles [S26] [S27] such as healing the sic [S28] and walking on water [S29]. Horus was known by many gestural names such as The Truth, The Light, God's Annointed Son, The Good Shepherd, The Lamb of God, and many others [S30] [S31]. After being betrayed by Typhon [S32], Horus was crucified [S33] [S34], buried for 3 days [S35], and thus, resurrected.[S36] [S37]."

Notice they're saying "Horus," not Jesus. Yes, an ancient religion in Egypt, based on astrology, has the EXACT SAME STORY as Jesus'.

Here are several other "sons of God," born in various other places, having the same story.

"These attributes of Horus, whether original or not, seem to permeate in many cultures of the world, for many other gods are found to have the same general mythological structure.

Attis, of Phyrigia, born of the virgin Nana on December 25th, crucified, placed in a tomb and after 3 days, was resurrected. [S38] [S39] [S40] [S41] [S42] [S43]

Krishna, of India, born of the virgin Devaki with a star in the east signaling his coming, performed miracles with his disciples, and upon his death was resurrected. [S44] [S45] [S46] [S47] [S48] [M2]

Dionysus of Greece, born of a virgin on December 25th, was a traveling teacher who performed miracles such as turning water into wine, he was referred to as the "King of Kings," "God's Only Begotten Son," "The Alpha and Omega," and many others, and upon his death, he was resurrected.[S49] [S50] [S51] [S52] [S53] [M]

Mithra, of Persia, born of a virgin on December 25th, he had 12 disciples and performed miracles, and upon his death was buried for 3 days and thus resurrected, he was also referred to as "The Truth," "The Light," and many others. Interestingly, the sacred day of worship of Mithra was Sunday.[S54] [S55] [S56] [S57] [S58] [M]"

Explanation how these made up characters are nothing more than descriptions of astrology.

"First of all, the birth sequence is completely astrological. The star in the east is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, which, on December 24th, aligns with the 3 brightest stars in Orion's Belt. [S60] These 3 bright stars are called today what they were called in ancient times: The Three Kings.[S61][S62] The Three Kings and the brightest star, Sirius, all point to the place of the sunrise on December 25th.[S63] This is why the Three Kings "follow" the star in the east, in order to locate the sunrise -- the birth of the sun.[S64]

The Virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo, [S65] also known as Virgo the Virgin. Virgo in Latin means virgin. The ancient glyph for Virgo is the altered "m". This is why Mary along with other virgin mothers, such as Adonis's mother Myrrha [S66], or Buddha's mother Maya [S67] begin with an M.[S68] Virgo is also referred to as the House of Bread [S69] [S70], and the representation of Virgo is a virgin holding a sheaf of wheat. This House of Bread and its symbol of wheat represents August and September, the time of harvest. In turn, Bethlehem, in fact, literally translates to "house of bread". [S71] Bethlehem is thus a reference to the constellation Virgo, a place in the sky, not on Earth. [S72]"

So, who made up these teachings that so many believe are from a "savior?" Was it government leaders looking to manipulate the masses into letting them do whatever they want?

Seems like it with teachings like "forgive," "turn the other cheek," etc. What would a government like more than people who say, it's ok that you're screwing us, we're going to forgive you, turn the other cheek, and allow you to keep screwing us.
