SOTT Focus: The Truth Perspective: Interview with Russell Gmirkin: What Does Plato Have To Do With the Bible?

gmirkin
Just how old is the Old Testament? If Moses didn't write the Pentateuch, who did? For millennia, people have thought the Hebrew Bible was as old as many of the events it depicts. In recent generations, scholars have thought it was created over a long period of time, with various authors and editors. But the writings in the Hebrew Bible may not be as ancient as we've been led to believe.

On this episode of the Truth Perspective, we'll be interviewing Russell Gmirkin, independent researcher, scholar, and author of two of the most revolutionary books in biblical studies: Russell's work radically challenges our understanding of the history of the Hebrew Bible. He demonstrates that there is simply no evidence that the Bible existed prior to the time of Alexander the Great (ca. 325 BC). All the evidence indicates that the collection of books we know of as the Hebrew Bible was written around the year 270 BC. And not only that: they relied heavily on Greek literature, particularly Plato's final work: Laws.

Listen in as we discuss how, when, and why the Bible was created.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Aging is not just for the aged anymore

aging, elderly, time running out
Diabetes, stroke, obesity, lower back pain, hemmorhoids and sciatica -- all diseases usually found in older people -- are striking children and young adults at greater rates. Many people have the idea that they can enjoy life in their younger years, eat and drink whatever they want, do whatever they like, and not have to worry about diseases or illnesses until they are much older. Unfortunately, this mindset coupled with a plethora of toxic foodstuffs available 24 hours a day and increasingly sedentary lifestyles has led to a world full of youngsters living in elderly bodies.

When it comes to aging, is our society so far removed from what is truly healthy that we confuse what would be considered normal with what is common? Is a sick population, of both the young and the old, our destiny? On this episode of The Health and Wellness Show we'll explore this phenomenon and its causes as well as dietary and lifestyle changes to keep your innards young and supple for as long as possible.

And don't forget that pets age too. Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be caring for seniors of the furry persuasion.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Weapons of mass instruction: The perils of education - Brainwashing, Indoctrination and Robot Factories

Today on the Health and wellness show we will revisit the education system and the ongoing brainwashing, indoctrination and dumbing down of the youthful masses. Compulsory schooling is creating dependent children who grow up to be dependent adults, passive and timid in the face of new challenges, lacking critical thinking and basic life skills. From the looks of it compulsory education is doing more harm than good. What are the social and emotional implications of educating today's youth with useless and needless information while stifling creativity, natural curiosity and the true desire to seek meaningful knowledge? Is the growing ignorance of today's student an example of a failing education system as a whole, or is it a crowning achievement with a more sinister agenda?

Join us as we discuss a side of compulsory education that is seldom studied, researched or looked at with a critical eye. The brainwashing and indoctrination doesn't end once 12 years of mandated education is completed it continues into higher education and university as well.

Stay tuned, as always, for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be the bow-killing vet, Kristie Lindsay.

SOTT Focus: Behind the Headlines: Fake News About Fake News: WaPo Blacklists SOTT.net as Kremlin Disinfo

In the wake of the Trumpocalypse, "fake news" has been in the news. First it was Facebook being blamed for Trump's win because of the pro-Trump fake news floating around social media in the lead-up to the election.

Then, an obscure left-wing activist college professor hastily compiled a list of "fake news" sites and posted it on her social media. The list was picked up by such fake news sites as CNN, WaPo, Boston Globe, NY Magazine, USA Today, Business Insider, and more, with recommendations for serious readers to avoid such tainted goods.

Now, the Washington Post has cited an obscure list of "Russian propaganda" websites to justify its claim that a "Russian propaganda effort" helped spread fake news during the election. Included on the list? SOTT.net, among numerous other great alternative news websites.

Today on Behind the Headlines we share our thoughts on "fake news", who the real fakers are, and what we think about being labelled as Kremlin trolls or useful idiots.

SOTT Focus: The Truth Perspective: Radical political correctness, liberal ideologies and the decline of modern civilization

Gender symbols

The loss by Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential elections, and the surprise win for Donald Trump, rather than exposing the Right's alleged underbelly of racism, bigotry, xenophobia and homophobia, has instead revealed something much more surprising, and potentially catastrophic for Western civilization as we know it: the cult of political correctness, obsession with identities, and a radical Left fringe that has ponerized inclusion and empathy to the point of authoritarianism. Whether it's on the domestic front of gender pronouns, safe spaces, and micro-aggressions, or on the foreign front of humanitarian intervention, human rights and the responsibility to protect, Western liberal values have lost all meaning.

On this edition of The Truth Perspective, we'll be discussing this trend, how it came about, and where it suggests we are headed.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Precious Snowflake Syndrome: Cry ins, safe spaces and microaggressions

crybabies
America is being overrun by a bunch of crybabies whose whining has reached a fever pitch. With the recent presidential election it's as if a switch has been flicked which gives people carte blanche to emote all over everyone else and throw tantrums in public. The ability to maintain a stiff upper lip and deal with adversity is being eroded. Feelings, however misplaced, are all that count while facts and reality are given short shrift. What are the roots of this emotional hysteria? Why do grown-ups need to hold cry-ins in their safe spaces while being protected from microaggressions? What are the effects on the individual specifically and society in general when a culture of narcissism and the eschewing of reality is not only accepted, but promoted?

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness show for a lively discussion of this topic. Stay tuned, as always for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be euthanasia.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Connecting the Dots: Fighting the winter blues, mental health, and the coming vaccine season

winter blues
Join us for another Connecting the Dots episode where we'll catch up on the most recent news and timely topics in the world of health.

Winter is coming and Seasonal Affective Disorder will descend upon millions of people in the Northern Hemisphere. What part does shifting light cycles, either natural or artificially enforced through daylight saving time, play in mood and circadian rhythms? How can the effects of waning daylight be mitigated?

Winter also means that flu season is upon us and if the CDC had its way we'd all be vaccinated. We'll check in with that mega-organization and their partners in crime -- Big Pharma and the FDA -- to see what mischief they've been up to most recently.

We'll also discuss Italy's first Veggie City, protein intake and the wonders of vitamin B12, the disturbing rise of anxiety and suicides in children and how to naturally increase mental well being.

Stay tuned, as always, for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where she connects the dots in animal health news.

SOTT Focus: The Truth Perspective: 2016 US Presidential Election: The American Dream Turns American Nightmare

Take a look at our 'Picture of the day' today. It fairly accurately sums up the generalized feeling of not only Americans but many people around the world, about the 2016 US Presidential election.

To say the 4 yearly contest has become a depressing and contemptible spectacle that is totally unbecoming for the 'world's greatest democracy' is to understate the matter. Then again, was the US ever the 'world's greatest democracy', or was that moniker little more than an example of the comfortable lie that is not, to the dismay of millions, being exposed?

This week on The Truth Perspective, with just 3 days to 'election' day when only about 40% of adult Americans will actually cast a vote, we'll be analyzing the latest news and considering the deeper implications of the apparent transformation of the American dream into a nightmare, and why it's happening right now.

Why is Hillary being attacked by powerful US establishment entities? Is a Trump win likely? If Trump wins, will he be a '21st Century Hitler'? All this and more will be discussed today by your hosts and special guest.
