North Korea Says It Successfully Tested Hydrogen Nuclear Bomb

N. Korea tests an H Bomb that registers on the Richter scale as a 5.1 earthquake (link below.) It may be a lie. Who can assess the truth of international blather. The more important question of the instant moment is where is the human race heading?

J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of the physicists involved in the Manhattan Project, constructors of the nuclear bomb dropped in 1945 by this nation twice -- once on Hiroshima and once on Nagasaki obliterating everything in its path and turning humans who were near ground zero into vapor quoted, after it was dropped, from the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I become death destroyer of worlds."

Between global climate change related ad infinitum catastrophes, eternal war spanning the globe, religious tyranny's choke hold including in our democratic nation, the hate of racism polluting our media's message what are the odds our species will eternally inherit the earth?

I once had a professor who, in 1968, said he thought the chances of the human species reaching the turn of the century was zero to nil. When our calendar reached century 21, I thought his prediction in error. Maybe, though, he was merely off by a decade or two or three.

Even though I am religiously secular there are some Biblical quotes that possess heft which I use in my literary arsenal. "They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind." Hosea 8:7 is one of them.

WOULD YOU WANT DONALD TRUMPET OR ANY REPUBLICAN MAKING LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS ABOUT NUCLEAR WAR?   NEITHER WOULD I.  GET OUT THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE IF YOU CARE ABOUT LIFE!
