Chinese Rivers Prettier Than Ever

colourful-chinese-rivers-001.jpg

Chinese and indolent capitalists alike have been marvelling at the colourful state of the nation’s rivers, which have lately even managed “red as blood.”

Residents of a city in China’s Henan province recently found a river running through their city “running red as blood.”

The red waters flowed down from a culvert to the north, and residents reported nothing untoward the day before.

Even local environmental officials were surprised, and could only speculate that “upstream rainwater and sewage have mixed to cause the effect,” although they still have no idea what exactly caused the issue.

Online, there is some wonderment at the range of colours, and even textures, now visible in China’s waterways:

    [Chinese and indolent capitalists alike have been marvelling at the colourful state of the nation’s rivers, which have lately even managed “red as blood.”]

    And thus it was written that one of the signs of the 2013 Apocalypse will be rivers running red with blood...

    Yeah, right. It's ultra capitalist. China's plan to world domination is by money. None of these limiting environment rules etc. Just do do do with no worrying tomorrow and ruin the whole environment. And yes, they call themselfs communist, but anything communist about them is their totalitarian rule.

    Interestingly, China's one-child policy had made most people abort their first children once they found out that it was a girl.

    You forgot to mention that inheritance, by law, goes to the male/husband. That's why nobody wants to give birth to females.

    No truer statement especially for China where they have a one child policy, if they haven't aborted/abandoned their firstborn.

    It's probably because we know that you can't populate the earth by incest. We also know that only black people could populate the earth. It is possible for them to turn white, the other way around just doesn't work.

    Thus we conclude the bible must be a fairy tale.

    A few parts of the Bible are mystical allegories (Revelations being the prime example), but the majority are not. And the mystical Gnostic texts never made it into the Bible.

    @Riiku
    Some parts of the Bible advocate killing innocent people and taking their land, some parts advocate the death penalty for sexual "immorality", some parts advocate human sacrifice... and you're criticizing the few parts advocating non-violence!?

    00:57 is wrong though, the Bible was intended by the writers and compilers to be taken as divinely revealed truth, and was proclaimed as such by the Church.

    Of course, it's fine to use the Bible as a kind of self-help guide (as long as you cherry pick the good advice and ignore the shockingly awful advice), but that's not what the Bible was "meant to be".

    Anyway, why even make that comment in the first place if it's supposedly "unfitting for this site to discuss"?

    90% of Christians DON'T know what they're doing. Instead of taking the bible for what it is, they come up with their own ideologies outside of the bible and teach their ideology to be the utmost truth and other Christian religions are doomed to hell.

    The Bible isn't meant to be read literally, yet all people do so as it is. That's unwise.

    The Bible isn't a story that wants to say "HEY, EVERYTHING WRITTEN HERE IS ALL TRUE AND LITERAL AND YOU MUST LISTEN". Only retards (which are the majority, including lots of priests) believe it to be so.

    The Bible is rather an un-literal collection of story meant for a kind of guide on achieving moral goodness and spiritual fullfillment, that's it and it's unfitting for this site to discuss, I believe

    "...you can't populate the world by incest..."

    I feel the need to defend the bible and further confuse people:

    The bible never claimed Adam and Eve were the only people on the planet. In fact, when Cain (the older son) is exiled for killing his brother Abel (the younger son, and the only other child mentioned at this point) he goes to the land of Nod, and there he finds a WIFE who bears him a son, named Enoch.

    Obviously, there is a lot of discussion about the land of Nod, as it confuses the whole "Adam and Eve are the only people on the planet" idea that was going on before Nod is mentioned. Maybe Adam and Eve had already had *tons* of kids. Maybe God decided to make more people for genetic diversity. Maybe people evolved from apes and God "breathed the breath of life into" two of these newly evolved humans, giving them a spirit, or something else, but these "breathed into" humans can breed with the normal sort, so that's what Cain did. I've heard a a discussion on this, and those are some of the arguments I remember.

    And obviously, you have the "it's just a story" argument as well.
    (However, anon 00:57 -"The Bible isn't meant to be read literally, yet all people do so as it is. That's unwise." Have you actually read the bible at all?? I'll agree that this can be said for the creation story in Genesis, but after that, the old testament is mostly a historical record of the Jews. The New Testament is essentially a collection of letters written by 1st century christian leaders to encourage specific churches with their specific needs. Yes, Revelation probably isn't meant to be interpreted literally, but iirc, the intended readers then would have know that, as it was written in a style they would recognize, and know how to interpret it.)

    for those who care:
    Genesis 4:16-17
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_of_Nod

    For what it's worth, I'm of the opinion that it really doesn't matter what happened or how it happened, but God did it. For the rest, I'll be sure to ask God the next time I see him.

    Finally, please don't think I'm trying to be preachy... I just felt the need to clear up some things when it seems like both sides are just making stuff up...

    Now, stop bringing up the bible when you have no idea what you are talking about! I don't come to this site looking to discuss this kind of stuff.
