    Our Guest: 

    Mikaila Ulmer founded BeeSweet Lemonade at the age of four, after two major events: She was stung by a bee–twice in one week, and her Great Granny Helen sent a her 1940's cookbook, which included a special recipe for Flaxseed Lemonade. From there Mikaila transformed her fear of bees into a passion for social entrepreneurship. Her healthy lemonade uses fresh mint, flaxseed, with a percentage of the profits form sales going to local and international organizations fighting to save the bees. Her recipe won "Most Creative Lemonade" in Austin's 2011 Best Lemonade contest. Since then, Mikaila has been awarded Teen-preneur of the Year Award by Greater Austin Black Chamber and Best Kid-trepreneurial Biz 2013 by The Austin Chronicle.

    Today, the award-winning BeeSweet Lemonade is buzzing off the shelves of Whole Foods Markets in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana, and is available at a growing number of restaurants, food trailers and natural food delivery companies. In addition to making BeeSweet Lemonade, Mikaila conducts peer-led workshops about entrepreneurship and saving honeybees.

    In Fiction God Is Immoral And Yeshua's Death Is a Crime Against Humanity Why?

    in Music

    The bible presents the word God in a fictional context, because African and Mesopotamian religion has no history for God as a person. The following is what maked God and Jesus a fraud: [The Mesopotamian  first human religion was, of course, {pagan}   and {polytheistic,} and is therefore saparated by a profound spiritual gulf from the monotheism of Judaism and Christianity. Moreover, both the Old and New Testaments are imbued with an ethical sensitivity and moral fervor that have no counterparts in the comparable Mesopotamian  documents. Neither Sumer, nor Babylon, nor Assyria ever  arrived at the lofty persuasion that a "pure heart" and "clean hands" were spiritually more meaningful than elaborate riturals and sacrifices. The bond of love between god and man, while not entirely absent from Mesopotamian  religious thought, is certainly  far less significant there than it is in Judaism and Christianity. But the early Mesopotamians did develop the concept  of a personal and  family god, echoed in the Biblical "god of Abraham, Isaac  and Jacob"--and between this guardian deity and his adoring worshipper there was a tender, close and trusting relationship comparable in some ways to the one that exist between Jehovah and the patriarchs. Mesopotamian literature, like its [religion]  and law,  has also affected the entire Western world.

    From book titled: Cradle of Civilization, by Dr. Samuel Noah Kramer--Chapter 6 top paragraph
