GAIA MAI TAI RECIPE

GAIA MAI TAI

* GAIA, meaning Earth, elated to the Avestan word gaiia ‘life;’ cf. Av. gaēθā ‘(material) world, totality of creatures’ and gaēθiia ‘belonging to/residing in the worldly/material sphere, material’; or perhaps Av, gairi ‘mountain’.  Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. She is the immediate parent of Uranus (the sky), from whose sexual union she bore the Titans (themselves parents of many of the Olympian gods) and the Giants, and of Pontus (the sea), from whose union she bore the primordial sea gods.

Mai Tai is an alcoholic cocktail based on rum, Curaçao liqueur and lime juice, associated with Polynesian-style settings. “Maita’i” is the Tahitian word for “good”.

EVOLUTION DOES NOT CREATE BIODIVERSITY

“Biologists are still trying to count the number of different life organisms on the planet. Consider the probability that an estimated TWO BILLION SPECIES have lived on Earth, of which as many as 99.9 percent are now EXTINCT! So, there probably aren’t that many left, right?

Wrong.

There are still estimated to be about 30,000,000 (thirty million!) different species of organisms still living on Earth. There are estimated to be more than 400,000 species of plants, alone. Do you like bugs? There are more than 1,000,000 species of insects (yes, that’s one million). There are 30,000 different subspecies of spiders! Not to mention the 30,000 species of beetles, 20,000 species of moths and 20,000 species of ants, bees and wasps. Researchers have estimated that for every human being there are one billion insects on Earth!

There are more than 9,000 species of birds, 4,000 species of mammals (1,700 are rodents), 10,000 species of roundworms, 4,000 species of amphibians, 21,000 species of bony fish and 6,000 species of reptiles. Don’t even think about the nearly unfathomable variety of invertebrate life in the oceans. Scientists will be working for a very long time to identify everything that lives in the waters of the world.

That’s just life in the macrocosm of Earth; i.e., just those life forms that we can see easily with the naked eye. How does this apply to the microcosm of relatively invisible animals?

There are 4,000 known species of bacteria. On the average human body, about 600 million bacteria live on the skin. The skin under your arms carries close to 500,000 bacteria and your forearm is a thriving metropolis that is home to over 12,000 bacteria per square inch! The bacteria population INSIDE your body is too numerous to count.

Then there are all the species of protozoa, algae, fungi and bacteria that eat carbon dioxide and hydrogen and produce methane as a byproduct.

In addition to the vast number of species, consider the fact that each individual cell in any complex organism is, in fact, a separate, distinct life entity. There are about 75 trillion cells in the average human body. The size of a single cell varies from the thickness of a few thousand atoms, to the largest single cell (an ostrich egg), measuring about 20 inches in diameter.

The sheer volume and diversity of life forms would seem to defy the probability of any coincidental, circumstantial, accidental or spontaneous development of the unthinkably vast, complex, intricately coordinated, precisely structured, cooperatively balanced, and yet, ingeniously bizarre, incongruously grotesque and downright peculiar variety of life on Earth. (Remember, we aren’t even counting the 99 percent of life forms that USED to live on the planet, which are now extinct!)

In the 150 years since Darwin and others have re-proposed the Theory of Evolution, no one has ever demonstrated it to be true. Not a single one of any of this immense number of species have ever successfully interbred and created a fertile reproductive combination of two different species.

The point is this: Darwin’s theory does not provide us with a workable solution. The missing pieces of the puzzle are still missing, namely: where did man and the other life forms on this planet come from?”

HYBRID HUMANS

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

is a link on Wikipedia to a list of HUMAN-HYBRID creatures from “mythology”. There are hundreds or even thousands of such creatures all over the world. Are these creatures “fiction” or historical?  Human “scientists” have not had enough time, YET, to perfect the technology of biological engineering, as revealed in the book ALIEN INTERVIEW. needed to create them?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hybrid_creatures_in_folklore

According to an article by researcher Mark Oliver, the “scientific” community is working on creating human hybrids now:

“In laboratories around the world right now, scientists are at work developing real half-human, half-animal hybrids.

It might sound like something out of science fiction, but combining human and animal DNA isn’t the fantasy of some far-flung future. It’s something that scientists have already done several times—and it’s forcing us to reckon with ethical questions we never thought we’d have to consider.

According to the scientists, the part-human animals they’ve created will do nothing but good. They’re a scientific breakthrough that’ll let us run medical experiments and procedures on something they consider less than human.

But we’ve yet to decide where the line between man and animal will be drawn. It’s still an open question: Are these creatures mutated animals—or the beginning of something more human?

99% of MUNCHKINS ARE EXTINCT (Beetles not)

HOW MANY SPECIES OF MUNCHKINS ARE IN THE LAND OF OZ?

“We represent the Lullaby League …”–The Munchkins

“We represent the Lollipop Guild …”–The Munchkins in ‘The Wizard of Oz’

On this planet, there are five major kingdoms of life forms categorized as follows:

1/ Bacteria

2/ One-Celled Organisms

3/ Mushroom, Molds, Fungi

4/ Multi-Cellular Plants

5/ Multi-Cellular Animals

The number of different forms of life–the tremendous variety of life on this planet–is virtually beyond comprehension. Think of how many different kinds of birds you’ve seen. Take a wild guess as to how many species of fish swim in the waters of the world. How many mammals or reptiles might there be, not to mention plants and insects?

INSECTS CAN SAVE OUR WORLD

insectsAre humans the “center of the universe”?  Do you believe that the species “homo sapiens” is the dominant life form on Earth?  Are humans created “in the image of god”?  Factually, if god looked like the most numerous species on Earth, god would be an insect!

There are more than 200 million insects for each human on the planet. The world holds 300 pounds of insects for every pound of humans.  At any time, it is estimated that there are some 10 quintillion (10,000,000,000,000,000,000) individual insects alive.

It has long been recognized and documented that insects are the most diverse group of organisms (on Earth), meaning that the numbers of species of insects are more than any other group.  In the world, some 900 thousand different kinds of living insects are known. This representation approximates 80 percent of the world’s species. Most authorities agree that there are more insect species that have not been described (named by science) than there are insect species that have been previously named. Conservative estimates suggest that this figure is 2 million, but estimates extend to 30 million.”

However, as far as human survival is concerned, all of humanity could easily be fed using insects as food.  Insects have more nutritional value for humans and livestock than most foods and are abundant and inexpensive to produce!
