Christian Author to Bill Moyers: Renounce Campbell or Christ

Author: Solving Light Books
Dateline: Wed, 02 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ANNAPOLIS, MD /Send2Press Newswire/ -- In an open letter to Bill Moyers sent today, author Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr. of Solving Light Books, has called upon the PBS icon to cease promoting the work of atheist mythologist Joseph Campbell or renounce Christ, one or the other.”

ANNAPOLIS, MD /Send2Press Newswire/ -- In an open letter to Bill Moyers sent today, author Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr. of Solving Light Books (www.solvinglight.com), has called upon the PBS icon to cease promoting the work of atheist mythologist Joseph Campbell or renounce Christ, one or the other.

"Since 1988 when PBS first aired the six-part series Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth, Moyers, an ordained Baptist minister and professing Christian, has ardently promoted the atheistic writing and thinking of the Scripture-bashing Campbell," Mr. Johnson said. Johnson's letter asserts that Moyers has used Campbell's books and tapes over the past eighteen years to delude millions of high school and college students, lure them away from belief in the Scriptures, undermine their faith in Christ, and to profit financially. "For a professing Christian to push Campbell's atheistic works is a flagrantly immoral, self-serving, and deceitful act. It's the ultimate in hypocrisy," Mr. Johnson added.

Read the Open Letter to Bill Moyers at
theparthenoncode.com/pressreleases/OpenLetter.htm

Johnson points out that during the PBS presentation, Campbell referred to the resurrection of Christ as "a clown act, really." Also, in his book, The Power of Myth (with Bill Moyers), Campbell predicts a happy future for humanity when belief in the God of Israel will be considered "an abomination." A disciple of Friedrich "God is dead" Nietzsche, Campbell pockmarked his books with passages scornful of those who believe in the Judeo-Christian God, and he proclaimed the defining atheistic belief that God did not create man, but rather, man created God.

According to Johnson, the author of "The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble," Campbell called all myths "metaphors" to cover up his ignorance of their true meaning. "Moyers used his journalistic platform to promote an atheist as the great 'authority' on myths, and yet one of the many ironies here is that Campbell himself knew virtually nothing about the true meaning of those myths," Mr. Johnson said.

"The moral contradiction here is so obvious, and Moyers' motives and credibility are so questionable, one has to wonder why and how the PBS leadership in particular and the American media in general have let him get away with this irreverent sham for so long," Mr. Johnson added.

Located in the administration building of the Department of Coroner, the gift shop helps fund the department's special programs and public relations efforts.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- "Skeletons in the Closet" is the Los Angeles County Coroner's gift shop, now online at www.LACORONER.com. Located in the administration building of the Department of Coroner, the gift shop helps fund the department's special programs and public relations efforts. Some of these programs include the "Youthful Drunk Driving Visitation Program" (YDDVP). A court ordered alternative sentencing program for youthful offenders, this program takes participants through the Coroner facilities and exposes them to the realistic and traumatic consequences associated with their offense.


Caption: Sherlock Bones on the Beach.

The Department also participates in "Every 15 minutes," this powerful program challenges students to think about drinking, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved.

Started as a T-shirt sale for employees in 1993, popularity of the shirts grew rapidly. Soon people outside the department were clamoring for shirts with the "Body Outline" and more. Today, "Skeletons in the Closet" carries over 50 items, has a web-site for E-commerce and does over a quarter million in sales each year.

Until recently, the Store's sales consisted of orders processed by mail and walk-in clientele who could only pay by cash or check. Recently, the Department finalized the system for online marketing and E-commerce. This was the first Los Angeles County departmental attempt at an E-Commerce application.

As a model for government agencies to generate revenue, this innovative program has led the way for civic self-reliance. As County budgets get tight and tax revenue shrinks, it is important to look for new ways of generating revenue. The success of this entrepreneurial venture stems from years of perseverance by staff and tremendous support from their customers.

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ATLANTA, GA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Pretrieve (www.pretrieve.com) today announced the launch of their free, comprehensive public record search engine, making the collection of information about people and businesses from free internet sources more efficient and accessible to consumers. Pretrieve's unique service connects researchers to a variety of county, state, and national public records through categorized links that deliver users directly to their search results, not just the homepages.”



A R T I C L E:

TLANTA, GA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Pretrieve (www.pretrieve.com) today announced the launch of their free, comprehensive public record search engine, making the collection of information about people and businesses from free internet sources more efficient and accessible to consumers. Pretrieve's unique service connects researchers to a variety of county, state, and national public records through categorized links that deliver users directly to their search results, not just the homepages.

"Finding public record information on the Internet has always been a challenge," said Paul Bunting, President of Pretrieve. "In our investigations, we found that the big search engines didn't go deep enough to find the searchable databases that we were looking for, and we needed a way to tap into the resources of the deep web. Our goal was to develop a specialized search engine for retrieving public record information that was familiar to operate but delivered results in a more meaningful way."

Pretrieve's public record search engine offers users the ability to quickly corroborate facts about people or businesses from official sources. Homeowners can perform a background check on their service contractors, child care providers, or even search for sexual offenders and parolees that may be living in the neighborhood quickly and at no cost. With Pretrieve, small business owners, legal researchers, private investigators, real estate appraisers and other professionals now have multiple public record sources right at their fingertips.

"We've seen a sharp increase in the number of visits to our website from consumers who are curious about what information is available about themselves, their neighbors, and their community," said Bunting. "In the wake of recent news stories regarding data security breeches at information companies that may have resulted in criminals accessing personal information, as well as concerns over extended access to personal information through the Patriot Act, there has been heightened interest in public records from consumers."

Pretrieve LLC is a privately owned, Atlanta-based company, focused on developing deep web search engine technology for public record retrieval. Pretrieve licenses its search technology to information providers that seek to enhance their product's value by integrating access to free data sources.

Euro Leaders Support Native American Olympic Inclusion

Author: Native Voices Foundation (NVF)
Dateline: Fri, 25 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “VEYSONNAZ, Switzerland and ASPEN, CO /Send2Press Newswire/ -- At French Princess Caroline Murat's recent '1st Ski and Music Festival in Veysonnaz' (part of 4 valleys, including Verbier), a team of Europe's Who's Who stepped up to champion Native American inclusion in future Olympic Games as Sovereign Nations, announced Native Voices Foundation (NVF).”



A R T I C L E:

VEYSONNAZ, Switzerland and ASPEN, CO - Feb. 25, 2005 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- At French Princess Caroline Murat's recent "1st Ski and Music Festival in Veysonnaz" (part of 4 valleys, including Verbier), a team of Europe's Who's Who stepped up to champion Native American inclusion in future Olympic Games as Sovereign Nations, announced Native Voices Foundation (NVF).



Caption: Celebrating Veysonnaz Switzerland as the Training Center for the Native American Olympic Ski Team - L to R: Tulalip speed ski champ Stew Young, Veysonnaz owner Jean Marie Fournier, Ski and Music Festival host Princess Caroline Murat, and Olympic/Freestyle ski champ Suzy Chaffee.

Stew Young, a member of the newly-formed Native American Ski Team and World Cup speed skier from the Tulalip "Killer Whale" Tribe, and Olympic skier Suzy Chaffee, co-chair of NVF, had come as special guests of the Credit Suisse-sponsored event. Chaffee and Young's intent was also to meet with IOC officials in nearby Lausanne to discuss how to create more opportunities for Indian youth in future Games. Running into an IOC roadblock, NVF Euro leader, Princess Murat (world-renowned pianist inspired by a Ute Chief in Aspen), rallied her friends to give the Americans a hand. Included were Jean Marie Fournier, owner of the Veysonnaz Swiss Ski Resort, Francoise Zweifel, former Secretary General of the IOC, and Princess Lea of Belgium, joined by NVF's other leaders, Olympian Prince Albert of Monaco (adopted by Lakota-Sioux Tribe), and the Guinness's, the most ancient tribe of Ireland.


Canada Leads Way

Following the brilliant IOC Eco recommendation to include Indigenous Peoples in the Olympics to enhance their sustainability, spearheaded by President Jacques Rogge, "the First Nations of Canada received a $3 million Legacy Fund from the Vancouver Olympic Organizers, to train a team of Snowboarders, with the help of our Olympians, to compete our 2010 Games," said Aaron Marchant of the Squamish Nation near Whistler.
"Likewise our focus for the IOC meeting was the tribal-oriented Vancouver Games," said Billy Kidd (Abenaki), captain of the Native American Ski Team and 1964 Alpine Silver Medalist. Only one Native American, Naomi Lang (Cal Karuk Tribe), 5x US Ice Dancing Champion, has competed in the last two Games, and only a handful in history. Yet a group of world Olympians at the Athens Games honored the American Indians for inventing the roots of 10 Olympic sports.

Not used to defeat, Princess Murat, the closest descendent of Napoleon, rallied her friends, many guests of the festival that showcased some of the "awesome" progeny of Europe, like 15 yr old Russian violist Sasha Saume, elated to have Native American and Olympic/Freestyle stars teach them to ski. "We were amazed how Zweifel offered to graciously guide us with the IOC; Princess Lea offered to hand deliver a letter to her countryman, President Rogge; Fournier (and Princess Caroline) announced on Swiss TV that Veysonnaz, with its fun apres ski Tipi on top, will host a Native American Olympic Ski Team Training Center."

"Indian Country so appreciates how Princess Caroline and her friends are fighting to open the Olympic doors for our youth to be able to dream and realistically have a chance to compete in future Olympic Games. Especially after feeling unwelcome after IOC/USOC President Avery Brundage illegally took away Jim Thorpe's medals," said Young.

The question on everyone's minds there was: could the American Indians prove they are Sovereign Nations?
Back in America, Oren Lyons, Chief of the Onondaga Nation of the Iroquois Confederacy, supplied the legal ramifications: Considering: The existence of the treaty relationships between the United States and sovereign Indian Nations: "Indian Nations preexist the United States... Indian Nation Sovereignty is recognized and protected by the U.S. Constitution, legal precedent, and treaties, as well as applicable principles of Human Rights." -- from joint occasional papers on Native Affairs no. 200403 (from book, "Myths and Realities of Tribal Sovereignty: The Law and Economics of Indian Self Rule" by Joseph Kalt [Harvard's JFK School of Government & Native American Economic Development], and William Singer [Native Nations Institute at Udall Center for Studies of Public Policy at U. Arizona.])

Further: "The Iroquois Nationals (traveling under Haudenosaunee Passport) compete in the International Lacrosse Federation's (ILF) World Championships (Iroquois-invented game), and currently rank 4th behind USA, Canada and Australia," said Chief Lyons, Grand Master Lacrosse player, CEO of Iroquois Nationals Team, and history professor at U of Buffalo.

Native Americans are on the lowest economic ladder in America with a 20 year less life expectancy..., and are "still too depressed (from the abusive government boarding schools...) to want to get healthy," according to a Senate study. Sports, especially skiing in their ancestral lands, have been found to be the No. 1 motivator of Indian youth, and now over 100 ski areas want to welcome their tribes to ski and snowboard to "start a new beginning," inspired also by the economic-lifting snow ceremonies the tribes have shared.

"Through the IOC's opening their doors to welcome American Indian Nations into the Olympic Family, as Sovereign Nations, Native youth can finally get the health, appreciation, encouragement, healing,and sponsors to train teams in some of the sports they invented to be able to compete with honor in future Games. This is also the best chance to preserve our quality of life, and our 100 year old Modern Olympics to last as long as the Ancient Olympics, which lasted 1,000 years," said Chaffee.

NVF is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3. It is a partnership of US Tribal leaders and Olympians whose mission is to create joyful unity through sports to help preserve Mother Earth for all our children.

OMAHA, NE /Send2Press Newswire/ -- The Enigma Radio Network recently added a podcasting division to their popular programming lineup of Internet radio shows. This addition helped the network reach over 100,000 MP3 downloads per day on February 21, 2005.

The Enigma Radio Network began broadcasting in August of 2004, with a weekly update from international best-selling author, Kathleen Keating. This update proved to be immensely popular. Kathleen is a frequent guest and commentator on radio programs and has hosted several radio shows in the past.

The constant demand for her radio appearances sparked the network to add The Enigma Files, a weekly, hour-long show featuring Kathleen and a variety of different guests. This show began broadcasting in December 2004 and became instantly popular with Kathleen's global fanbase.

In February 2005, the network started podcasting their MP3 format shows. The addition of the shows to many popular podcasting directories brought in even more listeners.

The Daily Dig is the latest show produced by the Enigma Radio Network. The Dig is a daily news program featuring headlines from all over the world and commentary. This new show received over 6,000 listens in its first week.

The Daily Dig will be introducing a new host, Jon Dougherty later this week. Dougherty brings a unique perspective from his many years as a respected print and radio journalist.

The network will continue to add new and innovative programming in the near future in response to its listener's demands.

The Enigma Radio Network is pleased to be involved in podcasting. Kathleen Keating stated that, "No one should be force-fed programming. People have the right to listen to what they want - when they want it."

The Enigma Radio Network is dedicated to this philosophy and looks forward to the growth of the network as it heads towards 200,000 listeners a day.
