This question is a major objection that atheists put forward to justify their disbelief. Bertrand Russell (1872–1970), a famous British philosopher, in his influential little essay, Why I am not a Christian, put this forward as his first objection.1 Today’s atheists repeat the objection, including Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) and Australia’s own Philip Adams at the 2010 Global Atheists’ Congress in Melbourne Australia, who said, “The great argument for God was that there had to be a Creation, a beginning. … But my objection was simple. If God was the beginning who began God?” This principle of causation is so fundamental that if I said that the chair you are sitting on, which must have had a beginning, just popped into existence without any cause, you might justifiably think I need a psychiatric assessment! The universe had a beginning; almost no one disputes that, because the laws of thermodynamics demand it: the universe is running down and it cannot have been running down forever, or it would have already run down. No stars would be still churning out energy and we would not be here.

Tea-the second most consumed drink in the world--does not have its origin in Britain, England, France ir Holland. Camellia Sinensis--Tea's official, biological name--is a native of China, found its way to Japan by way of traveling monks and through to India by various other means.
By the time Europeans encountered this fabulous beverage, it had been in use in Asian countries for untold thousands of years. It was just not called Tea.

in The Bible
Many Blacks/People of Color in America grew up without any knowledge of who we really are. No race on Earth history started 400 or so years ago. Some like to make this our starting point. Anything past the 400, we thought, was even more embarrassing than the slavery history we must deal with. Only, it was all one big lie. A nightmarish tale told to keep us from the knowledge of our true history...our glorious and tragic past. Heavenly Father told daddy Abraham ... 'Know for sure, your children will be enslaved and mistreated for 400 years in a land that is not their's." And so, we have come to the end of that 400 years. And, it is time for us to awake from our lost memory.
We will discuss our precious Black Bible history along with various secular history books. We will explore Biblical, historical and scientific evidence to prove Black people in America... once known as the "people of the Book" (Bible)... are the true children of Israel, the grandchildren of daddy Abraham. I hope you will come along and travel with us through the exciting pages and doors of time. We are sure to receive a a great awakening of our minds with the real knowledge of us.
Though this vital Black Bible history will be our main theme, we will also focus on many other issues that affects the Black community, as our survival is daily challenged.
'Today' is nothing more than a product of our 'Past Decisions' - a 'Looking Glass' of sorts; The images it reflects are filled with the decisions of our past and are 100% constructed using only materials harvested from the consequences of our actions - and inactions.
The upcoming Election will become known - in the future - as one of the most important times in our history. Never has so many VITALLY IMPORTANT issues been called to question - all within a single election. Rarely has there been so much at stake. The unfortunate part about that is that so many people - being in full possession of the ability to affect those outcomes - will make a CONSCIOUS DECISION to do, instead......absolutely nothing.
These are the facts:
The financial credibility of the USA is all but gone, with a deficit hoverin around $20T (that's $20 Trillion): How, then, will our currency continue to compete - or even survive - in the future 'Marketplace of the World'?
We've all but exiled and made null those few citizens who are the ONLY LINE of defense and barrier between the 'Safe Haven' that is our country and the cold, cruel world that lies beyond our borders - our Veterans: How will we continue to count on those who have VOLUNTEERED to serve their country?
Status Quo Politicians have all but erased the separation of Church and State, creating laws with unspeakable demands: When the Catholics in our country are summarily forced to perform abortions, will anything that we hold sacred remain?
Our Nation is bursting at the seams with those whose Jihad would see them die - just to see us die: Will this massive influx of non-Americans, purposefully brought to our country by a Falsely Inserted POTUS dilute and muffle the Great Voice that used to be the Heartbeat of our Nation?

Carter Godwin Woodson (Dec. 19, 1875 – April 3, 1950) was an African-American historian, author, journalist and the founder of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. Woodson was one of the first scholars to study African-American history. A founder of The Journal of Negro History in 1915, Woodson has been cited as the father of black history. In Feb. 1926 he announced the celebration of "Negro History Week", considered the precursor of Black History Month.
Carter G. Woodson was born in Buckingham County, Virginia, the son of former slaves, James and Eliza Riddle Woodson. His father helped Union soldiers during the Civil War and moved his family to West Virginia when he heard that Huntington was building a high school for blacks.
Coming from a large, poor family, Carter could not regularly attend school. Through self-instruction, he mastered the fundamentals of common school subjects by age 17. Wanting more education, Carter went to Fayette County to earn a living as a miner in the coal fields. He was able to devote only a few months each year to his schooling.
In 1895, at the age of 20, Woodson entered Douglass High School, where he received his diploma in less than two years.From 1897 to 1900, Woodson taught at Winona in Fayette County. In 1900 he was selected as the principal of Douglass High School. He earned his Bachelor of Literature degree from Berea College in Kentucky in 1903 by taking classes part-time between 1901 and 1903.

Historians and archaeologist have confirmed that the first people in the Americas were black. Does this mean the indigenous Americans are black? Yes. Although this information has been kept from us, our true identity is starting to unfold. For years we’ve been told that we arrived to the Americas by slave ship, when in fact most of us were already here. Is it possible that the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade is a fictitious story used to trick indigenous black people out of their homelands and history?“…Omission, not distortion, is the far more serious culprit in hiding the story of the black Indians of America.” Williams Lorenz Katz, Black Indians.Many black people who trace their heritage will not find any African slavery in their family. It’s also not a coincidence that many of us blacks have been told by an elder in our family that, “We have Indian in our blood.” There were no ‘red Indians’ until the colonizers began mixing with the indigenous blacks. Below is a short list of black native tribes:
Queen Chief Warhorse (Elwin Green Gillum) is chief of the Chata tribe. She resides in New Orleans and is very vocal about the injustices the indigenous (black) Americans receive from the government. In a television broadcast, Chief Warhorse said:
“The first thing you have to do is go through being classified as crazy. The United States has fixed it so if anything is not by their rule, it’s crazy…”
Tonight, we will be sharing a replay in honor of Black History month. Listen in to this very informative and candid conversation about how Jim Crow Laws still exist today. America is the most diversified country in the world, and yet, racism is still alive and well in this great country we call "land of the free".
Let's talk about the issue. Can this country learn to tune out the divisive rhetoric and unite together to Make A Difference? We would like to hear your thoughts. Tell us what you think in the comment section.
