Hundreds of Billions of American taxpayer dollars by the US Federal Government are funneled to the US Military complex and it's enormous number of defense contractors to design, build, engineer and implement ever more lethal weapons, explosives and machines which cause death.

Far less than 1/100th. of that enormous amount of money, science, resources and engineering into causing DEATH goes into solving ancient problems of LIFE such as 'cancer'.

There is a very good case that could be made that the US Federal Government and other Country's across the world DO NOT want to extend human lifespans, DO NOT want to cure MS, Cancer, Diabetes, MA, and Alzheimer diseases. Big Pharma makes Hundreds of Billions treating these people and AMA Medical Doctors make Billions of dollars seeing but not curing these victims. If you are not a victim it seems like Win-Win.

There are many types and 'kinds' of cancer. Some do have effective treatments, others sadly do not.

Suggestion, cancel a new hyper expensive F-36x Fighter jet program, take that money, technical team, engineering team to solve one or more of the 'cancers' that currently have no effective treatments for.

The American public should begin standing up and demanding a substantial change be made towards Eugenics. Medical treatments and Medical Philosophy which includes a Better, Longer, Healthier Life thru specific supplements, diets, exercise and nutrition. Include treating 'healthy' people to be even more 'healthier' and 'smarter'.

If Dr. Oz is a AMA MD, his Medical Licensing Board prohibt's Medical Eugenics, the application of Medical treatment, drugs, supplements and life styles which enhance the human body's health, longevity, intelligence and emotional depth.

How does Dr. Oz legally operate in such a heartless and callous Medical Organization and attempt to portray himself as a 'champion against these age old diseases and problems plaguing humanity'?

Susan, twin to Robin   September 9th, 2010 7:37 pm ET

My identical twin sister's death was preventable. There is a test, a vaginal ultrasound, that has been in use for years. We got the diagnosis on our birthday, had never been sick a day in our lives. A vaginal ultrasound detects five kinds of female reproductive cancers. Every woman should be offered the option to have this test at age 50. It is CRIMINAL that we were not told of this test. We had a baseline mamogram at age 40, colonoscopies at age 50, bone density tests, we would have had a baseline vaginal ultrasound, had we know of its existance. My twin would be alive today.
I urge every woman to ask for one. And every person to ask for a simple blood test, a CA125 (my sister called it a Cancer Alert 125)to detect cancer. We had blood work with every annual check up and no one told us about a CA125 or offered to run one.

I have lost my eternal best friend, till we are reunited in the afterlife. The day she died, I tried to go with her. If not for our parents, two brothers, sister in law and many friends, I would try again.In her memory, PLEASE tell every woman to ask for one of these tests.
I am now a twinless twin and sign our names in her honor, as the international twinless twins do,

Susan, twin to Robin

Imam Abdul Rauf stated, on Larry King Live, "If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse. The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. And I’m less concerned about the radicals in America than I am about the radicals in the Muslim world."

Sounds like a threat to me.

We do not negotiate with terrorists. Or their advocates.

Tristan   September 9th, 2010 9:03 pm ET

Hi Larry, great show, will you adress how Spainsh Doctors are proving that cannabis is highly effective at combatting cancer and how it may be kept illegal solely to profit the pill industry?

Can we see the peace mosque near ground zero and burning Quran

Bill   September 9th, 2010 9:09 pm ET

Pakistan can burn our flag. We as American's can not say are do anything to affend a Araib. Why?

Barney   September 9th, 2010 9:17 pm ET

I am confused with this Koran burning. NBC implies its a hateful act. Is that like when gay groups desecrate holy things in other religions like the Eucharist? Didnt ACT UP do that? Why isnt that a hateful act! Im unsure of you media people! Why are some religions considered safe and others not. Who is Opie and what did he do? I think the media needs to explain!

Bennie   September 9th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

AC and Ben seem like a smart, cool happening NYC couple (sorry for the corny jargon). The parties in the firehouse are going to be hopping! It figures that Anderson would hook up with someone like Ben, he has a lot going for him.

Anderson used to be so private about his private life, and to see him with an openly gay partner who is in the news himself is a big leap for Anderson. He must really love Ben.

CJ   September 9th, 2010 9:23 pm ET

Hi Larry,

I am watching your show tonight and I need some help. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer recently. I am 35 years old and work. I have no medical coverage and either make to much money or do not qualify for other types of coverage. Without treatment my life expectancy is five years. Do you or the panel have suggestions for me?

Mark Borsenik   September 9th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

I am so happy that someone is trying to do something about the epidemic of Cancer. Good luck!

ckesling   September 9th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

i would like to know if this money is REALLY GOING TO CANCER RESEARCH ??? i donated to the haiti releif and anderson cooper reported about a month ago on "keeping them honest" they have not received ONE PENNY !!!!! why ????? so i hesitate to donate unless I AM SURE they are going to get the money !!!please do not delete this question !!!! ASK THEM TO LET US KNOW !!!! it is important to me to find out the truth.... thank you. i also donated to the gulf releif for the animals. they cannot help themselves !!! please ask them to be "HONEST"!!!!

Kathy   September 9th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

Question for Dr. Oz – Pulmonary Fibrosis

I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis a year ago now or ideopathic intersitual lung disease. In that arterial blood work shows my oxygen level has gone down from 96 to 83....3 mths ago. My lungs are each damaged by 30%...air sacs only working at 42% a year ago.

I have read that most with this condition the mortality is about 5 years! At time of illness oxygen level was down to 46%. Spent month in hospital ...both surgeon who did open lung biopsy, and respirtorologist said I was very lucky to have survived this!!! All tests came back inconclusive. I feel each day is getting worse.....would like to have your opinion on this....and I know without knowing me personally and seeing my case makes it hard. But could you please try?


Diane Dagenais Turbide   September 9th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

Good evening to you Larry and all your lovely guests!

Thank you for posting for all of us the poem For our world from the late Mattie Stepanek.

Thank you for reminding us!

We all know people either living with cancer or having passed away because of cancer. So much more research needs to be done! We have a lot of human talent in need of more funding to research and save more lives! We know more about cars and computers then we know about our own human body! We all need to Stand up to Cancer!

Linda Murphy   September 9th, 2010 9:38 pm ET

I've been diagnosed with carcinoid cancer which had already metastized to my liver. I know it's considered a rare cancer, but now it seems it is being diagnosed more and more. Could you please talk about it and give me some guidance on this type of cancer. I know the FDA has recently approved a new treatment that was available only in Europe (Itrium 90?). Could you please give some information on it? No one seems to ever mention it on these programs.

Thank youy,

Linda Murphy

Cyrus Manavi   September 9th, 2010 9:44 pm ET

I am a bit disappointed that on the topic of cancer and cancer research there is no talk of the role of pathologists and their invaluable contribution to the diagnosis and classification of cancers. To me, us pathologists are out there and making the diagnosis and other doctors take credit for it.....

Robert Schlitter   September 9th, 2010 9:47 pm ET

$ years ago I had Avirtual colonostapy, They found a 2cm. polyp. I was told not too worry. that was in Sept. In Feb. of theyy next year I had a rregular colostpy. the tumor was now 5cms, and to large to remove. I had to have part of my colon removed later. I since have had 2 more colonosapys and all is clear, the polyp was precancerous btw.
this past April I had my prostrate removed also. My father had colon cancer, and my youger brotherr haad prostrate cncer. I am 58 years old now and very thankful I finnaly went for these tests.

Robyn   September 9th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

Can the stool test tell if a person has polyps or just cancer? My partner is hypoglycemic felt that she couldn't fast. I'm concerned that the stool test is not enough. I am 11 years younger, and I had polyps! Thanks!

carol   September 9th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

I had my first colonoscopy a couple of years ago on a Monday. That made a Sunday the prep day. I spent the entire Sunday doing laundry and cleaning carpets. No one told me I needed to buy a tarp to protect the floors in my house!

There was no getting to the bathroom in time. It was horrific. My scope was clean and I will never get another one. The test on Monday was easy but, the prep was horrid!

Joe Baugh   September 9th, 2010 9:50 pm ET

Don't feel too safe with a negative colonoscopy. I had a clear colonoscopy and was told to come back in 10 yrs. In 4 years I had a large tumor in the colon and mucinous adenocarcinoma in the abdominal cavity, type IV. Just recently had HIPEC surgery and am curremtly clear. Err on the side of too much screening!

igor fuchs   September 9th, 2010 9:51 pm ET

am watching the program in Brazil right now. I´d like to ask dr. Mehmet Oz that i´ve got ulcerative colitis and is it possible to turn to cancer.. i am taking mezalazine and got better but i already have done 2 colonoscopy and its ulcerative colitis... should i do somenting else apart of what i am doing....

Rhonda   September 9th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

You asked Dr. Oz about the gap in seniors getting colonoscopys. I have the same question for my Mother's PCP. She's 72. Just had her 1st one. And was diagnosed with rectal cancer. She's undergoing Chemo/Radiation 5-6 weeks, then surgery, coloscopy bag-permanent, and another round of Chemo/Radiation. I'm angry. Her PCP knew of her symptoms a year ago. I'm not a doctor. I didn't know the preventative care calendar or "standard" of reasonable care... any comments from you or Dr. Oz?

P.s. Mom's doing well. She's a fighter. We'll get throught this. I have many other questions about other things re: cancer. Maybe another day 🙂

rj   September 9th, 2010 9:53 pm ET

Great show larry…and good work John Zarella with the breaking news that this mosque controversy is now thrown into a cloud of uncertainty, which helps diffuse the situation.
Thanks to the IMAM…I think Donald Trump can help with his ideas also…can’t wait to hear his views next week.

And great announcment regarding the LKL show last night. Hope the new guy is cool, but am glad LK will be on thru 2010…Soledad handled the interview very well 2.

terri   September 9th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Dr. Oz a family member has CNS what we believe is Lymphoma. What do you know about cancer centers of America ? We are on the east coast and looking for the BEST place to take her.
Thank you

Cat   September 9th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

I am a female in her 50's and haven't been to a doctor in over 20 years. Until we have free healthcare i this country I don't see medical care in my future. Even if the tests were free what if they find something? What then? No way could I ever afford to go to a hospital. I know many, many people in my position.

Baba saviour   September 9th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

Dr oz am 29 years of age and my stomach is becoming bigger each day i want my stomach to be flat what do i do now that i dont even have the time to exercise.   September 9th, 2010 10:00 pm ET

how important is the CA125test?

audrey   September 9th, 2010 10:03 pm ET

Dr. Oz I'm 55 years old don't smoke or drink I weigh 132 lbs. I wear a size 0 I walk and I teach Yoga. I have struggled with high cholesterol
for many years. I've tried all natural products and can not get it down.
I recently started taking flax seed oil and omega 3 fish oil tablets. When I went to the doctor the other day I found out my choleterol had went up even higher total 285. I don't eat a lot of cakes, cookies or candy. What is causing this, could it be the flaxseed and omega.
My father died of a heart attack at 35. My physical body is great I'm muscular. Please help.

Joni Stein   September 9th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

Ater an annual PSA test my husband's surgeon did a biopsy because of the sudden change in numbers from the years before.
His Gleason number is 9 with an aggressive cancer shown. Today we met with the surgeon again, to schedule surgery for his prostrate to be removed. Had he not had his PSA regularly checked we might have missed this change. Thank goodness he had gone every year since he was about 50 and he now is almost 70, He never had any symptoms and is in otherwise good health. He had a bone scan and CAT scan on Tues. and no sign of cancer was indicated as best as they could detect. Now we hope and pray that the surgery will be able to end his battle with this killer. I am not ready to lose my dear husband of almost 50 years!

Suzanne   September 9th, 2010 10:10 pm ET

Have been watching tonight. Will definitely contribute tomorrow. I'm a 64year old female,129 lbs. 5'3". Non smoker, avid golfer, full time job, not a big drinker and yet I was diagnosed with stage 2b pancreatic cancer in May of 2009. I've been through the Whipple, chemo, radiation , trial vaccine all ending in January of 2010. In April two spots returned, one on my liver and the other near the surgical site. I had two more months of GTX chemo and had a very difficult time. My liver is now clear but still one spot left. My Oncologist is researching another "chemo cocktail" that i can tolerate My blood pressure is 118/68 without meds and cholesterol very low. Very healthy and the 5 things we are all supposed to watch, I did. How could I have prevented this deadly cancer?

susan   September 9th, 2010 10:12 pm ET

What was the simple way to check colon health Dr Oz alluded to that was without having a colonoscopy? Thanks.

Beth Covetts   September 9th, 2010 10:13 pm ET

On your information about colon cancer and the time to get colonoscopies. I have first-hand knowledge that what you said about getting a colonoscopy at age 40 if you have family history is incorrect.

My husband died in 1999 of colon cancer which had metastasized into his liver at the age of 39. His family has a form of polyps called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis. My children were at great risk and have been having colonoscopies since the age of 10. They were 8 and 6 at the time of their dad's death. With Familial Adenomatous Polyposisyou have a 100% chance of having colon cancer by the age of 40 if you have this disease! PLEASE CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION!!!! We have been to two major hospitals in larger cities, while many doctors are aware of this I have still run into some doctors who aren't as knowledgable about this diease and say, as you did, that if you have a family history of colon cancer then you should be checked by 40 years of age. Both my children inherited this disease and my son had his colon removed at the age of 15. He had many complications and was in the hospital for 3 months and then at home confined to bed for almost a year, while I took a year's leave from work to care for him. My daughter which is 17 now will have her surgery in the near future.

PLEASE CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION! My husband and I spoke with a doctor about his need for a colonoscopy with his grandfather dying of colon cancer due to this and we were told "start having your colonoscopies at 40". My husband would still be alive and my children would not have had to grow up without their Dad if this incorrect information were not still being told!

Respectfully submitted,

Beth Covetts

My husband was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer (with mets to the liver) at age 31. The only risk factor he had was being obese. The only symptom he had was blood in his stool. He ignored the blood for about two years. I was going through nursing school during the time that he had the blood in his stool. I kept trying to get him to have a colonoscopy, but he would avoid the problem every time he went to the doctor. By the time he had his colonoscopy, the doctor told him the tumor in his sigmoid colon had probably been growing for about 10 years. He has been on chemotherapy since June of 2008. He was taken off chemo in June of 2009 and the doctors were going to try to do surgery. By the time he went for his pre-op testing, his cancer had grown and spread to his lungs and one lymph node (according to CT scan). He has fought this disease for over 2 years and I am afraid he is getting close to the end of options for treatment. The first and second line treatments have stopped working, so the doctor has started him on a chemotherapy that "might" work.

I would like EVERYONE to be more active in their medical care. I wish more people would have screenings when they have symptoms and/or when it is recommended. My husband says he would rather have 10 colonoscopies a year than have to live like he is now. I wish the ACS would change their recommendations on ages, too. I have seen so many young adults be diagnosed with cancer. The bad thing is, when it is found, it is so far advanced that it is hard to treat. Young adults need more education so they can be more aware of the risks.

Cynthia Block   September 9th, 2010 11:06 pm ET

Dr. OZ, I am now a widow. My husband died 5/28/2010, of colorectal cancer,metastic liver cancer, & lung cancer. I did everything you said to do to get him to see about getting tested, when I first met him at age 56, and even asked if any family members' had been tested. One, a male tested positive for polyps. He confirmed, yes. I said, "No pun intended, but you are 6yrs. 'behind' ". We were just dating then. He became agitated and told me to lay off. This was in 2000, when we just began dating. We eventually fell in love with each other married in 2003. I still did what you said and stayed on him every year we were married. He would get angry and curse me out horribly, and yell at me. My only son died in 2007, 2008, my husband was diagnosed with stage 4, colorectal cancer. In the interim he became hostile towards me even more, and took my medical insurance away. He turned into a 'Nightmare'. I am now past fifty, no medical insurance, visibly saw the devastation of this disease in terms of the ravinging effects of multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, chemo brain, and seeing a 6'5 man reduced to looking like a 'preying mantis'. He honored my wish and I honored his wish to not see him die in the last few months of life he had left to live, reconnect with his children and ex-wife to reconcile their differences before he died. I told him to give to his family. They do not know this. I allowed one of his daughter's to spill out her curse words towards me, his ex-wife to revile me, and his lawyer to laugh at me. My husband had to leave this world in excruciating physical pain, fear, and paying monetarily to be loved and forgiven by his children and ex-wife, all at our expense to 'TRASH' our marital union. I now hold two death certificates of two men I loved who tragically made decisions to depart from this life early than expected. MONEY is what is keeping a large majority of African Americans and Whites from gaining access to a colonoscopy, plus most people are frightened to have anything inserted in their rectums', particulary males.

Monica   September 9th, 2010 11:21 pm ET

Beth Covetts you are 100% correct any one w/colon cancer in the family needs to be checked early I started at 18 and now at 33 this year had my colon removed in Feb 2010 May 2010 was a reversal of my small intestines to hook to my internal j-pouch no external ilostomy bag. Yes I suffered set backs like getting dehydrated when I was released from the hospital so back in for 4 more days, Scar tissue pain in March of 2010. Now in August 2010 went to the local hospital w/severe pain told I had the stomach bug but 11 days later had surgery in Boston where my original surgery happened for removal of scar tissue. The doctor said by 34 the polyps would have turned to cancer. My father put his surgery off by 1 year & it was too late the polyps turned to cancer which spread. less than a year later he died. Every one w/FAP will turn to cancer & need to be tested early in their teens. My children will get tested around 15 & probably need the surgiers too. BUT if you wait till 40 you probably won't make it to your 45th b-day. Shame on you Dr. Oz for giving bad information.

nelliefogarty   September 10th, 2010 12:36 am ET

There has being cures for cancer but the unfortunates have ended up in mental instutions billions of dollars lost to the pharmaceutical companies. In this age of tecnologies the only cure polio since the fifties Wake up america!

Vince   September 10th, 2010 12:51 am ET

Ok guys, what gives? We're in a fight against cancer, but you don't want to post information about a previous Larry King guest, who is an internationally acclaimed orthopedic trauma surgeon and best selling author who was for 15 years on the faculty of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine as Associate Professor and Vice Chairman of the Department of Orthopedics. She was also Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at San Francisco General Hospital and is recognized world-wide as an AIDS expert. I'd say she has pretty awesome credentials.

Doctor Lorraine Day cured herself of cancer naturally, this is the third time I've tried to post something about her... Why do you keep deleting this information? We should be looking under every stone!!

Andy   September 10th, 2010 1:03 am ET

Doctor Oz, I am a young mind researching with different, possible medical breakthroughs. My question for you, as a man with more knowledge than I, are skin cells able to be re-stimulated from their constantly dying state. Skin cells constantly die off and I wish to know if we can keep them from doing so.

Denise Salamoni   September 10th, 2010 1:10 am ET

My comment is for Dr. Oz regarding Myotonic Dytrophy and heart disease

Olivia Torres   September 10th, 2010 1:26 am ET

I have a question for Dr. Oz: I am 42 (female) . 3 years ago I had a DVT, I made a terrible mistake maybe because ignorance and did not go to the Dr. until my right leg was very bad ( it was 3 months after the 1st. sign of dvt) . I was on coumadin for 2 years and my clot never dissolved. A year ago I found a Dr. who helped me. He told there was 50 % chance of taking away the clot with his "Angiojet mechanical thrombectomy" , the surgery was successful. But, he said my veins were very damaged . I'm very active but my legs are tired and swollen all the time. I feel almost handicap. Is there a solution for my problem? Thank you in advance

zz   September 10th, 2010 3:40 am ET

dr oz make colonoscopy sound aint

Charisse Buchanan   September 10th, 2010 6:49 am ET

I thank God so many people are taking cancer awareness very serious, being I had alot of family and friends die of this deases. True education is the key and getting early testing for everyone.

agnes behrens   September 10th, 2010 7:09 am ET

Do you get a colonoscopy at age 78 or older? I read that it is more risky for older people.Did you use a laxative containing sodium phosphate?

GoodGrief   September 10th, 2010 10:08 am ET

Susan, Twin to Robin, have peace of mind knowing that your sister is back with our Father in Heaven.

Ecclesiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.


Marilyn   September 10th, 2010 11:02 am ET

I could only watch a little of the special last evening featuring Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer & Brian Williams..... I have been diagnosed with cancer twice in my life; the most recent in the last year causing me to undergo surgery to remove the cancer. I am changed forever. With all that said, I do not ask for sympathy. I am grateful to be alive. However, I was offended & not at all amused at Katie Couric's giggling & joking... you would think she of all people would not find this discussion amusing. Does she not remember her husband? I will not watch another program featuring this self absorbed, shallow woman. Kudos to Diane Sawyer & Brian Williams for handling the topic with dignity.

Mary Gruner   September 10th, 2010 12:41 pm ET

Am wondering about the gamma knife procedure for brain cancer?

Tracie L. Russell, RN, BS   September 10th, 2010 2:36 pm ET

Dear Dr. Gupta,

I felt a familiar flush of anger when I heard you referred to cancer patients “failing therapy” tonight on Larry King Live in discussion with the three major network anchors prior to tomorrow night’s Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon. I lost my mom to a glioblastoma in 2006 and my brother to esophageal cancer at age 38 in 2008. I’m a former oncology nurse, now in drug development in the biotech industry working to discover new medicines to treat cancer and other life-limiting diseases. I feel it’s my, and your (as a physician ) and the bench scientists’ responsibility—and our collective failure to do so—to provide a therapy to cancer patients that cures them. They do not fail us; we fail them. I respectfully ask you to consider discontinuing the use of the expression, “The patient failed therapy” and to encourage colleagues to do the same. Physicians in particular use it regularly in many settings and it’s troubling to me as a nurse, a patient myself and as a family member. You have a highly visible position of leadership and accessibility to both laypeople and fellow professionals and a unique opportunity to model language that accurately reflects the respectful dignity with which patients and families hope they‘re held by those who care for them. May they never feel that the surgeons and other caregivers who hold their very lives in their hands regard them as failures.

Hi Dr Oz

What are the four things to know, that can safe your life?
Thank you, and a good show you have.

but who created the creator?

KING   September 10th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

Our personal experiences in life prove to us beyond every reasonable dout that God exist. It doesn't make sense to say this complex but well designed universe came out of nothing. Now when it comes to who created God, God himself has said in his word that the number of his days cannot be searched. There have been numbers of miraclous healings doctors have witnessed so no one can disprove the existence of God.

arwa aledwan   September 10th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

Yes, I strongly beleive that God is the creator of the whole universe. and regarding each question that Mr. Howking ask it if God is the creator or not. and regarding his other question about the unvirse or God , I strongly recomand for Mr. Howking to read the Holly Quran and I am sure 100% that Mr. Howking will find the answers that made him not sure if there is a God or not.

mary bienemann   September 10th, 2010 11:27 pm ET

I agree completely with Stephen Hawkins. and hope this is the beginning of an enlightment needed in this confusing organized religion driven world.

Susan, twin to Robin   September 11th, 2010 12:16 am ET

to Good Grief Thank you for the kind words. We believe in any path to God and I welcome prayers for Robin's soul and for me(Susan) from people of all faiths.

to Jan re CA125. Normal for most women is a number between 7 and 35. If your number is much higher, and rising after a second test, you must look further,have more tests.It only costs $75.00 and can be included in routine blood work. One CA125 during one of our annual check ups, and my twin would be alive today.

re the Stand Up 2 Cancer show tonight. As Neil Diamond was singing, they scrolled that "there is no test for ovarian cancer", this is not quite true. A vaginal ultrasound can detect ovarian, cervical, vaginal and several other cancers. It may not be foolproof, but it is an indicator and would give many woman a warning to check further.It saved my life and would have saved my twin's life. All women should be given a choice to have one at age 50!

Susan, twin to Robin

Regarding the universe and the existence of GOD: I strongly feel that our consciousness guides us. Goodness vs evilness lead us the outcome, the betterness or distructiveness of the world, hence there is a purpose of our existence of earth. Hence there is a GOD – our death leaves behind our consciouness and spirituality that assist with our future. With every birth, the "spirit" guides us – to either become a better world or a more distructive one. The "Power" that GOD gives us human through our consciousnes that GOD has created. Explain color, explain feelings, emotions, brains. Math may calculate feelings but the existence of feelings and feeling itself? What about intuition – that's from consciouness and spirituality that GOD has created. The purpose and meaning here for human is to either make a "Heaven" or "Hell" of this earth.
GOD should have a purpose for the bigger universe too – the ENEGY that GOD creates transform from one to the other to evolve which the sciencists call science.

Goodness vs evilness lead us the outcome, the betterness or distructiveness of the world, hence there is a purpose of our existence on earth. There is a GOD – our death leaves behind our consciouness and spirituality that is in constant existence. With every birth, the "spirit" guides us – to either become a better world or a more distructive one. The "Power" that GOD gives us human through our consciousnes that GOD has created. Explain color, explain feelings, emotions, brains. Math may calculate feelings but the existence of feelings and feeling itself? What about intuition – that's from consciouness and spirituality that GOD has created. The purpose and meaning here for human is to either make a "Heaven" or "Hell" of this earth.
GOD should have a purpose for the bigger universe too – the ENEGY that GOD creates transform from one to the other to evolve which the sciencists call science.
