Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + V (A Nation Under God, XXXI)

In my return from a visit to Oklahoma City, Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009. He was born in 1958 and thus died at the young age of 50. Although all deaths are major human events, the cause of the early death of any person requires investigations by police and science. As a scientist, who is developing a new science and is unifying this new science with a theology, I will offer an opinion of his death. I limit my opinions to Jackson’s use of drugs and plastic surgery.

To explain the problem of using drugs, fill a container with water. Then, watch all the water evaporate in time. However, our bodies are not containers that will evaporate all the water we drink. When we drink water, we add needed things to our bodies. All unused water is passed out of our bodies through a urinating system, a bowel movement system, pores, or the hair on the body. There might be other waste channels.

However, when we add a drug to our body, we add unnatural things to our bodies. These things are not like the things we add to our bodies when we eat healthy food. Drugs are thus unnatural (or foreign) things that become related to the natural things that form our bodies. This is why drugs can cause ‘side effects.’ Since we have very little knowledge of how long these unnatural relations can coexist with the natural things of our bodies, the accumulation of drugs can produce deadly side effects. I believe that Jackson’s heart failure might have been due partly to the excessive use of drugs.

I view plastic surgery as the practice of changing the parts of a human whole. Since the number of parts of a human whole is infinite, I conclude that this practice is changing a thing that God made. Some people say that this practice can also change a person’s skin color. Jackson says that he only had his nose changed so he could develop higher singing notes. I believe that Jackson’s heart failure might have been due to atheistic experiments with the natural parts of his God-made body.

A belief in evolutionary theory and thus the belief that God does not exist seems to lead many people into the use of drugs and the use of plastic surgery. As I continue to say, building America, as the U.S. founding documents say, will remain impossible as long as Americans do not want to build a nation under God.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + IV (A Nation Under God, XXX)

In yesterday’s blog, I show that the world consists only of things and their relations. Our senses give us these relations. However, the things cannot be known through these relations. In the Preface to Second Edition of his 'Critique of Pure Reason,' Kant says that we must think of things as things in themselves, otherwise there can be appearance without anything that appears. A thing thus has two senses, as appearance and as thing in itself.

In the first book of Nicholas of Cusa, "On Learned Ignorance,’ one finds that humans cannot know the whole knowledge of the world and that we must learn our ignorance. (Click) In his writing on ‘God as Not-Other’(Click) Cusa expands his work on the subject of human ignorance with Plato’s negative in the Sophist Dialogue (at 257b). (See Hamilton, Edith and Huntington Cairns, Editors (1961) ‘Plato -The Collected Dialogues,’ Princeton: Princeton University Press.) In Cusa’s writing on God as Not-Other, at Proposition 15, he says, ‘in something hot What-is-not-hot is the hot thing.’ In this statement ‘something hot’ is an appearance. And ‘What-is-not-hot’ is a thing in itself.

Atheists say that man has only one sense, the sense of appearance. And all things are thought to have an environment. The function of a thing is of interest only if the thing is a mechanism or one of its parts. To the atheist, a thing does not have a spiritual life. Thus, the thoughts of our atheists and scientists can be challenged.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + III (A Nation Under God, XXIX)

In this blog I expand my thoughts on the concept we know as ‘relation.’ To my knowledge this concept was used first by Moses when he was identifying the relationships among families in the Book of Numbers of the Old Testament. Today these relationships are known as relatives.

This meaning of the symbol relation was expanded when the Middle Ages ended with the work of Nicholas of Cusa and modern science began with the work of Galileo on the motion of pendulums. This expansion occurred when the concept ‘function’ was added to the subject ‘relation’ as an adjective by mathematical physicists. This combination became known as a functional relation. An example is the physical law expressed as ‘force equals mass times acceleration.’ Mathematical physicists found this law and express it as F = ma. Mass and its acceleration functions by producing a force, which functions for the infrastructure of life in the universe. In a similar way, a human sperm, human egg, and human soul function to produce a human being, who functions for itself and other human beings.

Because relations are not physical things, all functional relations must be spiritual. Thus, since mind is a spiritual thing, only human Spirits can know functional relations. Here then is a deeper understanding of science and truths. The nature of the universe and its creator can become more real with spiritual studies.

In this blog, I am thus saying that the science of today must be reformed drastically. Further, I say that the people of the USA must turn to God and make America a nation under God.’

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + II (A Nation Under God, XXVIII)

Some teachings of Jesus Christ are not understood by most people but are also not understood by many religious leaders, theologians, and scientists. This is because the words of man’s symbolic languages can have vague and multiple meanings. For instance, the phrase ‘living water’ is not understood as a means for developing self-knowledge. In this blog I discuss the symbol ‘in’ and the symbol ‘within.’Jesus uses the symbol ‘in’ at John 14:20. And he uses the symbol ‘within’ at Mark 7:23.

Words, such as living water, in, and within, are evidence that Jesus Christ studied the work of Greek philosophers such as Anaxagoras, Aristotle, and Plato. So we cannot say that nothing is known about Jesus for the first thirty years of his life. This kind of evidence also tells us that Jesus is not ‘the Only Son of God,’ as some Christians say. I say that all humans are Sons of God. I conclude that the teachings of Jesus are new, turbulent, and excellent for his time. I expect history to eventually say that Jesus was one of man’s ‘big thinkers.’ Thus, other ‘big thinkers’ can be expected to appear.

When Jesus studied in Greece he brought to all Jews the idea that ‘things’ are not containers in which other things will be found. A thing can only have ‘relations’ with other things. At John 14:20 Jesus is really saying that ‘We have relations with God, ye have relations with me, and I have relations with you.’ Unfortunately the idea of ‘relations’ did not appear to man until modern science emerged. At first, philosophers thought that relations are physical things. But physical relations have never been found.

At Mark 7:23 Jesus says, ’All these evil things come from within and defile the man.’ Thus, he is saying that a defiling thing relates to man. This defiling thing is the human mind, which is developed by symbolic languages. So, the defiling thing is the national language of a nation. Jesus was thus telling us long ago how to eliminate crime in any nation.

Only if religions and scientists work together with our symbolic languages, can a nation become ‘A Nation Under God.’

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 + I (A Nation Under God, XXVII)

In this blog I want to discuss a pair of religious errors because they are impeding the advancement of the USA as a nation under God.

These two errors emerge in the current biblical interpretations of the teaching of Jesus Christ in Ch. 24 of Matthew. One interpretation says that Jesus Christ returned to God after his death, but will return to this planet.

Since all created things are finite, all finite things must have their origin in something infinite, which we call God. But our symbolic languages say that finite things cannot exist in any infinite thing. So science says that it was impossible for Jesus to exist in God after his death. Since science and faith are not opposing concepts, faith and science must be unified. When unified, science and faith speak together and say that faith alone cannot save this false interpretation of Jesus’ teaching.

The other religious error occurs when religions interpret Matthew Ch. 24 again by saying that Jesus Christ will return to this planet and cause new major events. The second appearance of Jesus Christ will lead to the following events: (1) life will end as we know life today; (2) judgments will be made of all humans; (3) judged people will find a new life either in Heaven or Hell; and (4) an apocalyptic event will end the universe.

However, if the universe ends, there is no place for Heaven or Hell to exist because Heaven or Hell cannot exist in God. So, where are Heaven and Hell? Further if finite things lose their reality, our linguists would say that the concept ‘infinite’ must also lose its reality. If these religious interpretations are true, these events would end the universe and God. Again, faith cannot save the teaching of this false interpretation.

Faith and science must thus be unified. I unify them and name the unity ‘theological science.’ I develop this new unity on this website with over one-hundred blogs from 6/6/08 to 1/16/09. I wrote one-hundred more blogs to apply theological science to help President Obama remake America.

I continue to give thanks to Google because some new generation will eventually wake up and learn how inconsistent the teachings of the field of religion have become.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea 100 (A Nation Under God, XXVI)

In this hundredth blog, I want to discuss the possible fall of the USA in this century. This possibility has developed because the U.S. government is tossing the 1776 founding documents away and making the people of the USA vulnerable to foreign forces. One of these forces is the Pope and the Catholic Church and their control of the U.S. Supreme Court.

While the USA was founded under God, the teachings of God in the USA by the Catholic Church are outdated and have many errors. Unfortunately, these false teachings can be practiced by a majority of catholic judges in the U.S. Supreme Court. A majority of judges in our highest court form a silent force that can develop legal powers over the people of the USA and the body of U.S. laws simply by controlling the symbolic language used daily by all other U.S. judges. Under this silent force for ninety more years, I conclude that the USA will be very different.

All religious teachings have errors because humans are fallible. But the Pope is said to be infallible (incapable of error). The fallibility of all humans is true because our symbolic languages can only express a person’s perspective of reality. Since all scriptures are constructed with symbolic languages, all scriptures are man-made and can only express one’s perspective of reality.

Catholic teachings say that Jesus Christ is Lord because he is the only Son of God. These teachings also say that Jesus was conceived supernaturally as a human without a sperm in a woman called the Virgin Mary. According to the Pope, all other humans are viewed as lower beings and are born naturally as Darwin’s evolution theory says. This teaching is ‘not even wrong’ as Wolfgang Pauli would say. Instead, this teaching is worse than a wrong idea and is thus completely inconsistent with God.

To build the concept of infallibility into Christianity, the early Christians made a major error when they selected to use the simplistic logical thinking of Aristotle over the complex dialectical thinking of Plato. Because of this error, the people of the Middle Ages did not progress. Since this simplicity of logic is still promoted today in the USA, Americans are losing their mathematical and scientific abilities.

Christianity split into Eastern and Western factions in the 4th century because the Eastern Christians say that Jesus Christ was created by God. My studies of the teachings of Jesus indicate that he was created by God and learned many of his teachings from Greeks. Later, Christian teachings split the Western faction into Catholic and Protestant factions.

The people of the USA must study the problem that I am describing above. The force of the Catholic Church over the USA must be reduced.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXIX (A Nation Under God, XXV)

In my last blog, I show that the human sperm/egg thing is a whole and that the human soul can form a relation with it. This relation explains, in general, how spiritual things (or Spirits) can develop relations with physical things. This relation also explains why spiritual things are immortal, why physical things are mortal, and why the relations between immortal and mortal things are temporary. We can thus say that a living thing will eventually die but that its Spirit will never die.

The lives of spiritual things are based on the pair of opposites we call ‘rest’ and ‘motion.’ But the symbol ‘rest’ cannot be equated to zero motion. Coexisting opposites, such as rest and motion, have confused our atheists, logicians, and physicists. When Moses used the word ‘rest’ and said that God rested on the seventh day, Moses was telling us that an Intelligent Design exists and has different phases.

Religions must stop teaching that humans go either to Heaven or Hell after death. This teaching is inconsistent with a monotheistic God. Unfortunately, this ugly ancient teaching is still taught today. The development of new knowledge by man about Spirits and the universe created by God tells that this teaching is false. Today, we know that a relation exists between our souls and the human sperm/egg thing that gave us life. So, when a human dies, that human only comes to rest. The phrase ‘coming to rest’ means that the soul has entered a new phase of life. Today, this new phase of life is known as reincarnation.

The new phases of life are still unknown by man. Some researchers on birth marks are saying that some humans seem to return to planet earth. But other researchers are saying that humans appear at other places in the universe. Since human life on planet earth is becoming more godless and more irrational, unless life changes, I hope that God places me at another place.

You might understand Spirits better with geometry. A right triangle, for instance, is formed by two lines that form a 90-degree angle. See pic below. Both of these two lines can be shortened to the point where their finiteness is transformed into an infinitesimal thing. In math, they are said to approach zero length, but do not become zero length. When both become infinitesimal, both lines become Spirits. When man gives these Spirits some finite lengths, a triangle is formed. Thus, when God creates Spirits, many different finite things are formed.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXVIII (A Nation Under God, XXIV)

In this blog, I want to expand my thoughts on the 6/2/09 blog. There I discussed the infrastructure for a free market. What I want to teach her is that infrastructures can be found among all things that God created for the universe. Here, I will polish my thoughts on the human soul and the sperm/egg thing.

In my earlier discussion of abortion, I say that the human sperm and human egg form the infrastructure for the human souls. Let me explain this statement. Since the sperm and egg do not form a container in which the soul lives, as water lives in a glass container. Instead, the soul forms a ‘spiritual relation‘ with the sperm/egg thing. This thing is a whole that obeys physical laws.

However, the soul is not related physically to the sperm/egg thing. Since the soul is not a physical part of the sperm/egg thing, the laws of the sperm and eggs and the laws of souls work together to create harmony, as Gottfried Leibniz says in his Monadology. The spiritual relation between the soul and the sperm/egg thing implies that all human sperms and eggs form an infrastructure for those human souls that will live in the universe as functional human beings.

Since these functional humans are created by God, they are given personal and social responsibilities as defined best through the development of self-knowledge, as taught by Jesus Christ.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXVII (A Nation Under God, XXIII)

I have come to the conclusion that many Americans and the younger Republicans of today do not understand the change that President Obama hopes to make. One of these changes had its beginning long ago, when I was still working at the U.S. Department of Justice. So, I will discuss a specific change that President Obama is trying to make. This change would use national government money and expertise to solve the rising crime rate and drug use because the lower governments had no technical abilities or money to solve them. In 1971, the Nixon Administration hired me to help solve these problems.

In the 1980s, the drug problem and crime were still rising because drug users had to become criminals to pay for their drugs. Soon, many ‘neighborhood watches’ began to emerge. Out of these organizations came the community policing experiments that I managed in Houston and Seattle.

Community policing experiments are modeled after General Douglas MacArthor’s earlier effort to build community policing in Japan using Kobans, which are police offices. In the early 1990s, I funded a computer-based community organization mapping program in the Chicago Police Department. I even met some of the community organizers in Chicago and I was impressed.

I retired in 1994. However, I understand that President Obama was involved in the development of community organizations in Chicago in the 1990s. Thus, I assume that my computer mapping program in the Chicago Police Department was a success and led to the growth of community policing in Chicago. I also understand that a new national project called ACORN will spread the community policing program throughout the USA.

Americans must thus understand why President Obama must convince the people of Afghanistan to stop growing drug-producing plants. Afghanistan produces more than 80% of drugs sold in the world. If President Obama is convincing, the U.S. problem of crime and drug use will fade away.

I believe that this crime and drug use change is connected to the other changes that President Obama hopes to make.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXVI (A Nation Under God, XXII)

In this blog, I expand my thoughts more showing that Judge Sotomayor should be rejected. I also offer a theory that explains why Justice Roberts did not respond to my August 2, 2007 paper on ‘The Declaration of Independence and the New 1776 Political Experiment.’ (This paper was posted on this website on the same date.)

On this website, I have said often that the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence form a law because it defines our Society, which is the first party of the two-party social contract of John Locke. The second party in Locke’s social contract theory is Government. Society and Government were thus used by our founders to form the USA and its New 1776 Political Experiment.

However, in order to follow the teaching of the Catholic Church and the Pope, every catholic judge in the U.S. Supreme Court must argue that the Declaration of Independence has only one authority, the authority to go to war against England. Thus, this catholic argument does not accept the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence as a second authority, that is, the authority to form the Society defined by John Locke. This catholic argument shows how the U.S. Supreme Court was able to eliminate the Declaration of Independence from the U.S. body of laws.

Why does any catholic judge want to eliminate the Declaration of Independence from the U.S. body of laws? The answer is that the statement in the Declaration of Independence --- all Men are created equal --- is opposed to catholic teachings.

Catholic teachings say that humans are not equal. So the Pope, Saints, and Jesus Christ are thought to be created specially by God. In the case of Jesus Christ, Jesus is given birth through a woman, who is called the Virgin Mary. President Bush, who nominated Justice Roberts, said that his presidency was ‘blessed.’ Did Roberts teach Bush about inequalities? Also, it seems that the catholic teaching of inequality is used to rationalize child molestations.

This catholic teaching is not accepted by Protestant churches, Jews, Muslims, and the Eastern Christians. Further, there is no scientific evidence that supports this ugly catholic teaching. Furthermore, Jesus Christ taught self-knowledge in the Gospel of Thomas. Christ’s self-knowledge is opposed to this catholic teaching.

Congress must reject Judge Sotomayor. It must make the above catholic teaching unlawful. And it must recover the laws in the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXV (A Nation Under God, XXI)

On August 2, 2007, I sent a paper to Supreme Court Justice Roberts, President Bush, and my West Virginia representatives in Congress. The paper is on ‘The Declaration of Independence and the New 1776 Political Experiment.’ It was posted on the same day on this website and identifies major U.S. problems, such as the growth of atheism, the teaching of evolutionary theory, the silent failure of U.S. science, the Supreme Court misinterpretation of the Declaration of Independence, and the turning of our nation away from God. These major U.S. problems brought no response from Justice Roberts or President Bush but did bring responses from Senator Rockefeller and Rep. Capito.

Senator Rockefeller’s response dealt with my charge that the Supreme Court is misinterpreting the Declaration of Independence. However, the Senator did not believe that the Supreme court misinterpreted the Declaration of Independence. Instead, the Senator said. ‘While the Declaration of Independence is not considered as law in the same sense that the Constitution is considered law, throughout our nation’s history, it has been looked upon by the Supreme Court in order to frame a historical context of legal and constitutional issues.’

The words of the Senator are hogwash. In my blog dated 2/8/09, I show that the Declaration of Independence authorizes Society whereas the Constitution authorizes Government. These authorities form two different and unified laws. These two laws have their origin in the social contract theory of John Locke. Philosophically, the Society is permanent. It is ‘the people’ or ‘Union.’ Since Society is permanent, it is sovereign. Society is unified with Government, which is changing by laws. It self-governs Society.

Congress must question Judge Sotomayor about the above two authorities. If she agrees with Senator Rockefeller, she should be denied the new position in the Supreme Court. Further, any Supreme Court member should be impeached if he or she agrees with Senator Rockefeller.

Clearly, the reasons why ‘the people’ of the USA are dividing will be found mostly in poor thought in the U.S. government.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXIV(A Nation Under God, XX)

If Judge Sonia Sotomayor is confirmed to the Supreme Court, she will become the sixth Roman Catholic of the nine justices. The other three justices are two Jews, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer and one Protestant, Paul Steven. As a diabetic, I would never accept such an important judicial position at the top of any nation because the thoughts and behaviors of a diabetic are not stable.

Beyond diabetes, confirmation means that the Supreme Court would become under virtually full control of the symbolic languages of the Catholic Church, these six Justices, the Vatican, and the Pope. Too often, people forget that the symbols of man’s languages form the mind of every human being. At 2/3 control of the Supreme Court, the Vatican and Pope can control the U. S. Supreme Court and thus the USA.

At this time, the USA is developing a very new nation with an excellent leader, President Obama. Knowing that no person is perfect, this development could be impeded or even stop this newness because the theological and scientific thoughts of the Vatican and Pope are wrong. For instance, Darwin’s evolution is wrong, the end of the world is wrong, and the Bible is not taught correctly. Further, Jesus was only a good thinker of his time. He was not God and cannot be worshiped as if he was God. The people of the USA should give members of the U.S. government only equal power. So, I think another person should be selected by President Obama.

Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea XXXXXXXXXIII (A Nation Under God, XIX)

In my last blog I showed that two different economic policies are currently used by the Republicans and Democrats to turn the U.S. economy away from a potential depression and high unemployment. The Republican policy expects to expand the ‘free market’ whereas the Democratic policy expects to expand the ‘ State and local infrastructures.’

I believe that these two economic policies can be used continuously because they are partners and are not related logically as if they cannot coexist. I view these two policies as one thing, that is, just as I view a rose bud that coexists with its infrastructure of roots, stems, and leaves. If these economics policies are unified, the Republican policy would serve people of the ‘here and now’ and the ‘wants and needs’ of their life. On the other hand, the Democratic policy would serve people of the ‘future’ and the wants and needs of the same people. By unifying these economic policies, Congress must change its debate by debating over the contents of the ‘free market’ and ‘State and local infrastructures.’

If these two economic policies are unified, the very rich class and big central banks will slowly fade away and the national self government and its representatives of the people would become the only source of capital in the capitalism of the USA. With this change, local banks, and the people it serves, would become an expression of ‘all godly Spirits in the USA.’ Stated slightly differently, the U.S. economy would no longer function as the primary cause of life in the USA. Instead, the people of the USA would return to the founding documents and the nation would again become a nation under God.

In my last blog, I show that the trickle-down economic policy, which reduces the taxes of the rich class, does increase the wealth of the middle class. However, this policy is successful only at the expense of reducing the wealth of the poor class. This trickle down policy of the Republican party does not seem to work. I conclude that it does not work because it focuses only on the jobs needed to expand the ‘free market economy’ and does not focus on the jobs needed to expand the ‘State and local infrastructures.’ I argue that new infrastructures are as necessary in a nation as new products are necessary for a free market.

I voted for President Obama because he told the people that he will focus capital on the nation’s infrastructure by raises the nation’s debt. However, Obama will not use the trickle-down policy by flowing capital through the rich class, as the Republicans do. Instead, the capital will trickled-up through new jobs that expand the nation’s infrastructure. This debt will be paid off by taxes received from the people who hold the new jobs. This trickle-up policy, which is better known as the Keynesian policy, was also used by Presidents Roosevelt and Clinton.

Below the second pic below shows the Republican Party failures of the trickle-down policy installed by President Reagan and the two Bush presidents. It also shows the Democratic Party successes of the trickle-up policy installed by Roosevelt, Clinton, and Obama. (click) The first pic shows the nation's more recent unemployment. Red was Father Bush, blue was Clinton, and the purple was Father Bush's son. The third pic (click) shows the long history of the nation’s unemployment rates.
