'Witchcraft' case gets instant attention of astrologers, palmists.. '

By NOUMAN KHALIL


An alleged witchcraft practitioner, who claimed to have the ability to change people's future with 'black magic,' is now seeking God's help in police custody.
Forty-four-year-old Yogendra Pathak of Brampton was last week arrested for fraud and pretending to practice witchcraft after police received at least one complaint of cheating and defrauding a family.

"He was offering to practice 'magic' in solving people's problems and was charging money for that," Peel Regional Police's Sgt Zahir Shah told Focus.

At his residence situated at 23 Richgrove Drive (Castlemore Rd&Goreway Dr) in Brampton, Pathak was offering to solve, with guarantee, a range of problems such as disputes or barriers in marriages, love affairs and several health related issues by healing a person spiritually.

In his public advertisements, the suspect described himself as a renowned Kenyan astrologist, palmist, gifted psychic and spiritual healer.

He also claimed to have the ability to clear any barriers in issues such as immigration, unemployment, financial problems as well as helping students in academic careers and examinations.

The case is being watched closely by some who fear any fallout could inevitably impact them.

Pandit Prithipal, another well-known service provider in the GTA, said roughly 200-300 people are currently practicing astrology to help clients in different ways.

Apart from South Asians, communities from the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and elsewhere also offer parallel services.

Sgt Shah agreed there are other people who are also offering the same kind of services, but said: "We cannot act unless we have a complaint."

A matter of 'chemical imbalance'

Prithipal said he has been practising for more than 30 years but not a single person complained or got upset with him.

About others, Prithipal said: "I don't know which one of them is genuine or fraudâ?¦ these numbers are huge, but I can tell you about myself that I offer services of advising in good faith as how to heal from a 'chemical imbalance.'"

He said that actually clients suffer from 'chemical imbalance' due to which they feel sick and disturbed. "This 'chemical imbalance' can be fixed through eating healthy foods like colourful vegetablesâ?¦ and that's what I advise," said Prithipal.

Police believe Pathak has been offering these services for well over a year and are trying to determine how many people may have been victimized due to the suspect's alleged actions.

He has been charged with one count of fraud under $5,000 and one count of pretending to practice witchcraft and will be making a court appearance Oct 7.

Anyone who may have been victimized by the suspect, or who may have information pertaining to this investigation, is asked to contact the 21 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-2121, ext 2133 or Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
Australia’s New Prime Minister is an ATHEIST!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard

Congratulations Australia!

Former prime minister Kevin Rudd was a regular at Canberra church services and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott is known as a devout Catholic.

In contrast, Ms Gillard says that while she greatly respects other people’s religious views, she does not believe in God.

Ms Gillard has been quizzed on personal topics including her attitude to religion and her relationship with her partner during interviews this morning.

She says does not go through religious rituals for the sake of appearance.

“I am not going to pretend a faith I don’t feel,” she said.

“I am what I am and people will judge that.

“For people of faith, I think the greatest compliment I could pay to them is to respect their genuinely held beliefs and not to engage in some pretence about mine.”

“I grew up in the Christian church, a Christian background. I won prizes for catechism, for being able to remember Bible verses. I am steeped in that tradition, but I’ve made decisions in my adult life about my own views.

“I’m worried about the national interest. About doing the right thing by Australians. And I’ll allow people to form their own views about whatever is going to drive their views.

“What I can say to Australians broadly of course is I believe you can be a person of strong principle and values from a variety of perspectives.”


Comedy writer Ariane Sherine, (L) Professor Richard Dawkins (C) and Guardian writer Polly Toynbee (R) pose for pictures beside a London bus displaying an advertising campaign with the words: 'There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life," in London, on January 6, 2009. Ariane Sherine objected to the Christian adverts on some London buses, which carried an Internet address warning that people who rejected God were condemned to spend eternity in "torment in hell". She sought five-pound (7.80-dollar, 6.25-euro) donations towards a "reassuring" counter-advertisement -- and received the backing of the British Humanist Association (BHA) and atheist campaigner Professor Richard Dawkins. 800 buses around Britain will carry the slogans as well as posters on the underground system in London.
Obama is Atheist, Not Muslim

Nearly one in five Americans think President Obama is a Muslim, according to a recent poll -- but conservative commentator Ann Coulter says instead that he is an atheist.

"The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop," Coulter wrote on the conservative website TownHall.com. "I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist."

Coulter, known for her brash, often humor-tinged commentary, wrote that the "only evidence for Obama's Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years."

While 20 years of attendance at a church may seem like good evidence, Coulter ruthlessly slams Wright, reducing his sermons to "hate-filled demagoguery."

Coulter makes the case that questioning a public person's religion should not be out of bounds, pointing to Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, televangelists who were disgraced in a series of sex and money scandals, as examples of people practicing false Christianity.

"No sentient human is required to take Obama's profession of Christianity any more seriously than if it were coming from a 1980s blow-dried, money-grubbing televangelist with a mistress on the side," she wrote.

After making her case about the president, Coulter declares, "All liberals are atheists... There's only one true Christian liberal in the country and that's Mike Huckabee."
CAUTION

Caution: The following topics are taken from BIBLE!! If you are Under the age of 21, you may be offended by strong sexual matters, or things Violent in nature, please refrain from continuing to read this post.


This article includes:
Abortion, Bestiality, Cannibalism, Child Abuse, Family BreakUp, Homosexuality, Incest, Prostitution, e.t.c. crimes which are condemned.

Abortion:

Exodus 21:22
"If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. "

"Departing of fruit" imply miscarriage.

Number 31:17
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him."

"Knowing man by lying with him" implies losing virginity or deflowering, and also pregnant women.
In the passage Moses says kill all the deflowered women, and all the male children, in a order so that Nobody is left to take revenge for the murder of their mothers.
And only male children so that Girl children are left for the so called "Men of God" and Moses himself.

Adultery:

Leviticus 20:10
"And the man that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death."

2nd Samuel 11:2-4
"And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon."

"And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?"

"And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house."

What do you think about David?
Corrupt Politicians of Today do just the same. They make Laws, Break Laws,
They do what they want. David didn't follow Bible...
How can we expect the politicians to follow laws of their country..

Cannibalism:

2nd Kings 6:28-29
"And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow."

"So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son."

How disgusting. So mythical cannibals followed BIBLE and got the idea to taste human flesh...
How cruel their heart might be, that they boiled a small boy alive, AND ATE HIM!!

I now feel sorry about the mother who complains, that she gave the other woman to eat her child but got nothing in return!!

There we have it a list of people living to apparently incredible ages and being sexually active well past their sell by date. This is as far as we know completely unheard of, one of the things creationists use to support their fallacy. Including the 6,000 year age of earth. So is it true ? The Answer quite simply a big NO!!
Why?
Well it seems that the ancient people needed to exaggerate the ages of their ancestors. Perhaps some thing to do with your position in society, take a look at the Sumerian King list.

The surviving clay tablet was dated by the scribe who wrote it in the reign of King Utukhegal of Erech (Uruk), which places it around 2125 B.C.E

"After kingship had descended from heaven, Eridu became the seat of kingship. In Eridu Aululim reigned 28,800 years as king. Alalgar reigned 36,000 years. Two kings, reigned 64,800 years. Eridu was abandoned and its kingship was carried off to Bad-tabira. . . .

"Total: Five Cities, eight kings, reigned 241,200 years.

It does continue I will be looking at it again later.
There are other fragments dating much older from other copies but all copies essentially stemming back to one source.
Genesis 4

1.And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.


So Who was the father Adam or god?


2.And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.


The implication here is her children were born adults ????
So Eves Minge that god made must have looked like a hippo's yawn.


3.And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
4.And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

This early "god is showing his true colours. There's Cain working his arse off, tilling, seeding, weeding and harvesting. Able lazing around watching sheep chew the cud, and who does he favour?


5.But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6.And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?


Again gods alledged omniscience conspicuous by it's abscence.


7.If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.


You can understand him being pissed off lets face it this is possibly the first example of a prejudice that is still rife today.


8.And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

I can't help thinking that the original moral of this tale was intended to try and prevent this kind of unfairness in the work environment.


9.And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
10And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
11.And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
12.When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
13.And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14.Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
15.And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.


Wait a minute! Who is there to kill him ?


16.And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.


So now god is not omniprescient either.


17.And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.


Wife? Where are all these other people appearing from all of a sudden ?and how does one man build a city, a hamlet or maybe a very small village I can believe, but a city.!


18.And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.

Just an observation but....No mention of women here.


19.And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20.And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
21.And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
22.And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
23.And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
24.If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
25.And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.26And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

What a talented family, mastering all these diverse talents but no mention of the brewer's of beer , the vintners, coopers or potters which must have existed because the narrator of these last few verses must have been very drunk.
