Successful meditation begins with the activated mantra of a particular plane and ends with the realization of the power of the mantra by merging with its innate degree of vibration.

That's not the accepted definition. A species is determined by the ability to interbreed. Genetic type has nothing to do with it.

JEWRY:

The sharpest tensions between Israel and American Jewry crystallized during the “who is a Jew” controversy that followed immediately after the 1988 Israeli elections. Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, anxious to include ultra-Orthodox parties in his coalition, offered them the prospect of amending the “who is a Jew” clause in the Law of Return to specify that Jewish status existed only by halachic criteria-meaning children of Jewish mothers and those who converted to Judaism “in accordance with Jewish law.”

No one is denying the standard definition. If tomorrow technological advances make it possible for say chimps, aliens (?) or cows to interbreed with humans would that make the hybrids a species? I've heard that covert science has already done this....

What I was hinting at in my post was that there exist structural and functional differences based on genetic distinctiveness among various groups of humans as seen among Africans, Caucasions, Mongolians, Dravidians and others....

If males can be circumcised in accordance to backward religious laws then why did they not mandate the circumcision of females as for instance the cutting off of the clit? WHO defines female circumscion as: "...all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons."

If homosexuality invites the death penalty as per barbaric religious teachings, why did they fail to mention lesbianism and anal sex between man and woman as being equally abominable and prescribe capital punishment for all of these?

Did the ignorant prophets know anything at all about the root causes of homosexual instincts and the damage caused to the nerve currents and synaptic connections by anal sex?

Whereas evils like animal and human sacrifices were considered perfectly valid by the deluded prophets...

Defining truth, God, prophet, revelation, peace, messiah and salvation would expectedly invite dozens of definitions from people with various belief systems and not one of these definitions would be invalid with each being a partial definition but for everyone to agree to one rigid definition of any of the above terms is impossible and so the quest for global uniformity is bound to end in failure. Why, even within a religion there exist several denominations as various followers of the same faith may not agree on every aspect of their common scripture. ROFL.

No one can claim his scripture is divine and those of others undivine on the basis of language, archetypal God and customs. There's no universal definition of divinity as there is no single definition of God, scripture, prophet and truth. Besides, we observe that each scripture is in many ways a copy of some older or contemporary book with a few twists being given to the borrowed teachings and a few new ideas being given. The very teachings of all scriptures are mostly of a questionable kind, while the verifiable and beneficial ones are rare. Mosr religions preach personalities and fail to dwell on universal and imperishable principles and ignore life-uplifting techniques based on cosmological, psychological and material laws and their effects. WE have scriptures promoting evils and nonsense like incest, ritual murder, creation from nothing, flat earth, propagation of the human species from a single man-woman pair, untouchability, cremation and pedophilia. So, what can be said about such religions? Religion is trash, the prophets were to a large degree madmen, their God(s) were/are imperfect beings and religious types are nuts.

HINDU ABOMINATION - TOUCHING THE FEET OF OTHERS:

The foolish, superstitious and spineless Hindus have a horrible custom of touching the feet of elders or of religious leaders.

This is a damaging custom that must be stopped forthwith since the soles of the feet radiate a strong force field that's associated with the subconscious impressions of mind, vital and physical aspects of personality.

So, by touching the feet they establish a direct connection with the subconscious force field of the person whose feet they touch and in the process they draw in various vibrations most of which would be of a distorted kind since the subconscious is the repository of most of our undesirable traits that constantly transmits impulses into the our surface personality to act upon.

Yawn. Please re-read what you wrote.

1. "would that make the hybrids a species?"

2. One cannot take a word with an accepted scientific meaning and attempt to redefine it to mean something entirely different. I causes others not to know what the hell the former means. The scientific classifications of living organisms is a fixed system.
