Kurdish Children in Turkish Prisons: Where is the World?

Where is the United Nations? Where is the Amnesty International? Where is the outrage? Who will help?

EU, Israel and USA are clamming that Turkish Government are democratic Governments. And they are running Turkey using rule of laws.

This question has been around for over 2000 years.                             

Kurdish Children in Turkish Prisons
No one has done sufficient research about the three wise men (Magi) to provide an explanation to the Christian community about the reason for their visit to baby Jesus. The visit has been simply explained as a historical happening to honor the greatness of Baby Jesus.

It is thought by many that religious philosophies (theology and spirituality) are in opposition to the philosophies of the Physical Sciences. One are not allowing free discussions to come up with reasons and prove for what they are preaching while the others are semi free from restrictions by political and religious leaders, to do research and come up with prove for everything they are publishing. The Physical Sciences often achieve tangible results; you can see technological progress and an understanding of the Physical Sciences have improved the lives of humans. The religious philosophies (theology and spirituality) have not evolved as fast in order to continue serving humanity. Some religious people actually make life miserable for humanity with their teachings.

Why does no one want to discuss and research such an important historical visit? Why do religious scholars want to keep it as it is without research and analysis? These questions can only be answered by those religious leaders whom are in control of Christian religion but I believe the reason for this is that the three wise men were not Christian. It is because of politics and economic interests that this is not discussed more. I wish the science of religious philosophy (theology and spirituality) was an open field for peaceful discussions. I would like to bring logic and reason into this discussion instead of relying on old rhetoric imposed upon us with no room for thought. As we know, openness and freedom of thought will bring progress. I believe that religious teachings have been helping humanity progress and will continue to help humanity progress even better when we allow freedom of thought within religious communities.

The philosophies of Physical Science enjoy study and discussions without imposing anything on people. They have already accomplished a lot for humanity. Religious philosophy has also served humanity very well and accomplished civilizations and rule of law, but the progress is slower compared to Physical Science.

All of the restrictions imposed on the Physical Sciences by religious philosophies have impaired progress in the past. Human histories are full of examples of this and are well known to educated people around the world. The struggle of scientists for thousands of years has been to convince political and religious authorities to allow them to operate freely in the universities of the modern civilized world. In a very short time humanity has made tangible progress in technology and development.

I believe if the science of theology and spirituality are allowed to be freely discussed and argued peacefully we can make similar progress to that of the Physical Sciences.

Many religious leaders around the world are afraid that their believers will disappear when they are allowed to be free from restrictions. I believe openness and explanations based on logic with a proven record will bring them more members. In many religious organizations the members face death for disobeying the religious teachings. In many countries around the world people do not have freedom of religion. The religious authorities leaders will fight anyone who wants to convert form their organized religions to another religion. They use every means available to them to keep the members in their own organized religions.

I believe open discussions and freedom of religions will attract true members. When someone is convinced that his or her religious beliefs are true then that member will work harder to convince others to join his or her religion peacefully.

The use of force, intimidation and killing is not acceptable to modern humans. The majority of people around the world are well educated. They will only accept meaningful arguments. The freedom of choice is more powerful than the use of force and intimidation.

So I repeat, why did the Three Wise Men Visit Jesus Christ at his birth?

According to many religious beliefs, The Messiah will come to rescue humanity from all pain and suffering. Wars will end and he will bring peace allowing even the wolf and the sheep to drink from the same river. Many people outside of Christianity and Judaism do not understand what the Messiah is. Wikipedia provides us with a basic definition, “Messiah is a term used by Jews, Christians, and Muslims for the redeemer figure expected in one form or another by each religion. The word originally came from Hebrew messiah, 'anointed'. In Judaism, the expected king of the Davidic line who would deliver Israel from foreign bondage and restore the glories of its golden age. The Greek New Testament’s translation of the term, Christos, became the accepted Christian designation and title of Jesus of Nazareth, indicative of the principal character and function of his ministry. More loosely, the term messiah denotes any redeemer figure; and the adjective messianic is used in a broad sense to refer to beliefs or theories about an eschatological improvement of the state of humanity or the world.”

The statement above should be researched and bring forth meaningful discussions.

I am not from the Jewish or Christian religions but I done extensive research for my book, “Return of the Medes”. I found that thousands of years before the birth of Judaism and the existence of the Jewish people, before the existence Christianity and Islam, there were religions which believed that a Messiah would come to liberate humanity from pain and suffering.

We know that the Jewish religion believes that a Messiah will come according to their religious teachings, but most do not believe that Jesus Christ was the Messiah. Christian believers, on the other hand, do believe that indeed Jesus Christ was the Messiah that the Jews were waiting for. These contradictions affected the relationship between the Jews and the Christians believers. The Jewish people have endured a lot of suffering because of this disagreement. Finally this hatred was used by the Nazi Germany political party of Hitler to commit horrible crimes during the holocaust.

The Muslims believe that Jesus is the spirit of God. Shi’a Islam believes that Muhammad al-Mahdī (Imam Mahdi) will return as their Messiah and Sunni Islam does not believe in a Messiah figure at all.

But none of this explains the visit of the wise men. To begin to understand this we must first ask, who were the three wise men?

The three wise men were “Magi” from the Zoroastrian religion.

Magi were one of the six original tribes from the Medes (Kurds) tribe, whom united to form the Median Empire. The Magi are the forefathers of the Kurdish people in the Middle East. They have been working as preachers since Prophet Mehabad established his Mitra Religion over 9000 years BC. They were a segment of the society busy with the study of religion, astrology and religious teaching. They were scientists and scholars, an educated segment of the Airyanem (Iranian) people in the old days.

Emperor Cambyses II, son of Cyrus the Great of the Median Empire, was killed in a mysterious way on his way home after conquering Egypt. The Medes and Pars Nobel, with the help of the Magi establishment, elected Bardiya (Smerdis) second son of Emperor Cyrus the Great, as the Emperor of Median Empire. General Darius, son of Hystaspes (fifth cousin of Emperor Bardiya), with he help of a group of other Median Generals killed Emperor Bardiya of the Median Empire after only seven months and established the Achaemenid Empire sparking a bloody power struggle within the royal family. In the internal wars between those loyal to Darius the Great and those loyal to the son of Cyrus the Great Emperor Bardiya,
www.ekurd.netmost of the educated Magi were eliminated. Over one thousand years later the rest of the Magi were eliminated by the Islamic Arabic army after they conquered the land of the Airyanem (Iranian) nation.

The Prophet Zoroaster tried to reform the Mitra religion in six thousand B.C. Initially the Magi resisted Prophet Zoroaster’s teachings but later joined him and kept with his teachings during their work as Magi. As I explained in my book, the functions of the Magi (Magush – Those who say things from their conscious according to the Airyanem language) for more than 9000 years was to work as preachers, astrologists and dream interpreters before the birth of Jesus Christ (Jesus of Nazareth).

The Kurds and other Iranians are the owners of the oldest civilization in the history of humanity. They started the first monolithic religion 9000 years BC. The religion is known as Mitra (Mehr), with the philosophy that God is not like humans. God is energy, like the Sun. The Airyanem Vaejah was the ones to come up with the concept of one God.

The Magi were a profession similar to a scientist and preacher combined. They studied astrology and also taught the Mitra religion, and later the Zoroastrian religion, to the people. The Magi were preachers of those two religions. They evolved into a wise and knowledgeable group of scientists who could also predict the future of humanity and the future of the Earth. Based on the teachings of both religions, the world is the work of two beings hostile to one another. First there is Auramazdâha (God), the principle creator of the Universe. His wishes are for people to be left in peace, to protect the Earth and its environment so that people may live a joyful life on Earth. Opposing Auramazdaha is Angra Mainyu (the Devil), who teaches the principles of evil. The Devil was allowed, by Auramazdâha, to change the people's minds towards evildoing by collecting worldly physical wealth. It is clear that the Auramazdâha intended humans to be tested to see if they would follow the teachings of Angra Mainyu and steal wealth from others in order to live better than their fellow humans.

The source of wars and killing comes from the greed of a few who never have enough. They pretend to be religious and in some ways they are cleverer than the majority of people. They gather in diverse religious groups and political organizations but they share a common interest. They want to achieve a monopoly of power through wealth, by controlling the powerful elite of nations.

The good in the world comes from the Auramazdâha; all that is bad comes from the Angra Mainyu. The history of humanity is a history of conflict. It is the history of the Angra Mainyu and the people who follow its teachings. They invaded the world of Auramazdâha and marred it with wars and conflict in their own interest. When humanity learns the truth about the evil groups and their intentions, then the world will unite and defeat them--the children of the Devil--forever.

Until then, humanity will continue to create conflict and wars. The evil done by individuals and groups responsible for conflict and war is laid before them by Auramazdâha in the law revealed to Prophet Zoroaster. When the time comes, according to Magi calculations, the lawgiver, not yet born, named "Saoshyant" will appear to destroy the Angra Mainyu and those who claimed to be religious and good people but were, in reality the source of unrest and evil. They are the ones who have caused humanity so many wars, destruction, pain, and suffering throughout history. Men will rise from the dead with joy and happiness, free at last from Angra Mainyu and his disciples, those for whom the wealth of this world is so important. The corrupt, evil monopoly holders will be destroyed, allowing the people finally to enjoy life in a state that will last forever, and the rule of law will reign over the world.

In conclusion, the Three Wise Men believed that Jesus Christ was their Saoshyant (Messiah) according to their own calculations. They followed stars to find baby Jesus after His birth. I found in my research that Magi interpreted many dreams which later came out to be true. They believed that Jesus was the Messiah whom the world had been waiting for thousands of years.

The reader can do more research to find the truth about the Magi. The visit from the Three Wise Men was not an ordinary visit. It is evidence for those who believe in the Creator and spirituality.

Magi or Magush

Magi: the definitions of Magi in the dictionary (Latin plural of magus, ancient Greek magos(μάγος), Persian "..غ", English singular 'magian', 'mage', 'magus', 'magusian', 'magusaean') is a term, used since at least the 4th century BCE, to denote a follower of Zoroaster, or rather, a follower of what the Hellenistic world associated Zoroaster with, which was in the main the ability to read the stars, and manipulate the fate that the stars foretold. The meaning prior to Hellenistic period is uncertain.

Author's Note: Magiism, in its general form, may be summed up as follows before the Hellenistic period: Just to analyze the meaning of the word below will give us the answer what really means to be Magi. The Airyanem Vaejah people lost the scholars from Magi to challenge Greek and Jewish scholars in the past. They wrote what ever served their own people's interest. The Airyanem Vaejah nations without Magi scholars lost a great deal to other nations in the region and out side of region.

Mag: Saying, preaching, speaking

Ush: conscious, knowledge, spiritual, spirituality, theology

Saoshyant

This is the name of the traditional Zoroastrian religion concept for the "Messiah," similar to the traditional Jewish concept.

Saoshyant

Sao-shyant, means "You are everything, you are above and beyond the values, and you are the (Messiah)." Many people believe that Jesus Christ was from the Madayu people of the Airyanem Vaejah nations who settled among Semitic Jews after Babylon took over the region with the help of the Median Empire. Indeed, he could have been their Messiah. He was visited after his birth by wise men (Magi) from the Madayu and Parsu people of Airyanem Vaejah nations because they knew (or believed) he was the Messiah.
