How hard is it to mind your own Business?

Please see the following article:

I Have a lot of questions

It is really sad that the Hubris of religion caused this kid to break laws and lose his life in the pointless act of showing up uninvited.
Condolences to his family. I do not however, feel bad for the young man himself. With his misguided faith, he records North Sentinel Island as "The Last Stronghold of Satan"???? WTF? Why? because Christianity hasn't been included there? Why is it that Christianity cannot leave people alone? Why are Christians so arrogant to think that people who said NO to everyone else will all of a sudden say yes to them? Where is the brain power? What benefit to this boy is this new status of Martyrdom? He had his whole life ahead of him, but instead of living it, he decided to illegally go to a place he apparently knew slim to nothing about, to a people he had no way of communicating with, potentially infecting these people with viruses they have no immunity to. he could have done so much more damage than good.

It's upsetting for me because I feel for the Sentinelese and now their whole way of life is in danger because this naive boy decided to recklessly endanger them in the name of Christianity.

Religion is more harmful than helpful.

This story brings tears to my

This story brings tears to my eyes. I imagine the scene on the big screen. Little Chau standing there on the beach with a bible in one hand and a coconut in the other. I hear the voice of Angels singing in the background. Little Chau murmurs, "Jesus will protect me." We see the native's feet running up the beach, spraying sand and water behind their heels. Chau begins quoting a bible verse, "Ye though I walk through the valley of death..." The camera pans to see the faces of angry snarling natives running up the beach with their spears, bows and knives and death in their eyes. And above it all the Mormon Tubercular Choir is softly singing "Hallelujah" We see the spears fly, the arrows free, the coconut falls to the sand. The Choir raises it voice. Little Chao staggers as he is porcupined by bamboo shafts of all shapes and sizes. The narrator picks up the prayer where Chao left off because he is now falling to the sand with the bible in his hands. "I shall fear no evil...." Then I slip to the floor in side splitting teary laughter as the bible hits the sand and the camera zooms in on John 3, 15. "For God so loved the world.... " Face it, nothing ever happens and no progress can ever be made without "BLOOD SACRIFICE AND MARTYRDOM." It's the Christian way.

Wow! That was great! You should be a script writer, or maybe a director. I felt as if I were actually there on the beach with him..... (Hiding behind a big tree a long way off and watching with a pair of binoculars, of course. Hey, I'm not TOTALLY stupid.)

It is likely one way or another the " Sentinelese" will go extinct within the next 100 years. I saw one article mention there is less than 20 of them left on the island. The island cannot support much in a hunter/gatherer sense, and centuries of isolation means heavy incest, especially now that they have been cut off from all human contact. One has to wonder how they would treat a woman that was dumb enough to visit the island.

It is pretty stupid that this guy likely exposed these people to a host of diseases they had no immunity to. I feel bad for this bible thumpers family, a bit, but I did read his family and friends tried to stop him. How do you deal with reckless stupidity? Certainly a more obvious example of the incredible danger religious ideas can be.

Get his pastor to tell him on no uncertain terms that he considers this as suicide and he won't get to heaven.

Hell, they may be the only ones on the planet with the right idea. Water ;and food shortages are just around the corner. Non-nutritious fruits and vegetables are finding their way into the supermarkets so the fruit and vegetable section is no more nutritious than the boxes of bleached white flour.

Cities already crowded and we are heading towards 10 billion people in 2550. Everyone is waiting for the pandemic that wipes out the most populated cities. Capitalism is in its death throes. 70% of the world lives in poverty. Most of the human race could not think its way out of a paper sack without believing some spiritual being had something to do with it.

I'm just sayin... Perhaps those little guys with their sticks and spears have got it right/

According to the fairy tale a

According to the fairy tale a certain number of believers MUST BE killed for their fsith before Jess returns. He demands it. So if you want Jesus to return so that you can get to heaven it is a very good thing when people such as this guy get killed exercising his faith. That adds one more toward the unknown number that must be killed before Jesus returns. And billions of people want Jesus to return so it is a wonderful thing when believers die in such a manner.

Of course it has been 2,000 years and Jesus is still a no-show but maybe the next guy will be the magic number. But even if it takes 2 million more years that is just a short time per Jesus' clock. You always have to read the fine print when making a deal.

It’s worth starting a business only if you understand that you have the makings of being an entrepreneur and are ready to take on this responsibility. At the same time, now you can always count on help and support from companies such as , for example. And this is great because newbies in business often have to face difficulties.

It's hard enough, the main

"Minding your own business" can be challenging, especially in competitive landscapes. Whether it's optimizing online presence, refining services, or staying updated with trends, it demands consistent effort. Take, for instance, HVAC companies: navigating the digital sphere requires SEO expertise to stand out. FieldComplete's blog ( delves into HVAC SEO strategies, indicating the complexity of managing a business in the digital era. Juggling operations, marketing, and innovation while adapting to market shifts poses continuous challenges. Yet, focusing on strengths, leveraging resources, and embracing adaptation can smoothen the path to success, albeit with its share of hurdles.

Shield Your Smart Contracts

It's always frustrating when a deal falls through because of an unscrupulous payer. I prefer to avoid such situations and therefore use this smart contract audit service to know that everything is in order. With crypto it is always worth knowing that the origin of the funds has never been linked to anything illegal.
