"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act." George Orwell
I am Bahram Maskanian, a Persian-American man, advocate of reason, common sense principles and ethical standards, an environmentalist, humanist, political and social justice, human rights, gender equality activist, essayist, songwriter, producer and poet. - I am a person who believes that in all ethical, esthetic and matters of central concerns, such as preservation of life and humanity, Global Warming and Global Warring, I shall put the protection of our environment, our home, Planet Earth and humanity as the two and final purposes of my work and existence.
Global Warming has been in progress ever since the beginning of the industrial age. The consequences of Global Warming are all around us; we simply need to stop believing the universal lies we are fed, take our head out of the sand of deceit and self-deception in order to see and understand the problems.
The criminal ruling elite, who is fully responsible for all of humanity’s ills including our environmental degradation, wants us to believe that the irreversible consequences of Global Warming will kick in by the year 2020, and some paid talking heads say it will begin in the year 2030. These criminal ruling elites, are effectively passing the responsibility of what needs to be done, today, right now, to the next generation, to our innocent children and grand children, except in this case, it will be too late.
Every day, we need to remind ourselves that we have only one planet to live on, Planet Earth. We must come together, unite and begin developing and utilizing new energy technologies, enact new policies and make the necessary political and economic changes, to protect and save ourselves, the 99.99% of humanity.
We need to educate the brainwashed consumers, our loved ones, family and friends by spreading the news and information found on our website. Also through the use of mass media and government public announcements, we must introduce new means of healthy living and environmentally friendly ways to live.
We cannot afford to sit idle and do nothing, waiting for the criminal ruling elite, who brought us to where we are, and for so many years lied and denied the so many facts regarding disastrous tragic climate changes that have been taking place, to do something about it now.
Tragic events such as Global Warming, requires a paradigm shift, followed by taking immediate action. We must realize that prayer offered to any of the dozen or so manmade mythical figures has never actually worked, never fixed anything, and it never will. - We need a paradigm shift, now, not prayer. - We all need to learn and face the simple and obvious fact that, we are not being watched over by a mythical misogynist male god.
We, the humankind have been built through billions of years of hard work exquisitely by Mother Nature equipped with intelligent faculties to think, reason and learn the wisdom of life and the world around us, in order to determine our path in life, to live, love and learn, on our own and thrive.
Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom has established a harmonious life supporting balance on Earth, which has been evolving for billions of years. For the first time in human history, we have gained such destructive powers to disturb Mother Nature’s fundamental laws.
We are effectively digging our own mass grave, by allowing our primitive barbarism and greed demolish and destroy our one, and only home, planet Earth and all of humanity, due to the many stupid consumer choices we make every single day. We all know very well what needs to be done to remedy the on going sickness of Global Warming. We simply must act on it now, beginning in our own homes, local communities and country.
Reform begins with oneself.
As an intelligent primate, we are fully responsible for our own actions and well-being. We must get our act together as human species to work out our silly and mediocre differences to stop destroying our one and only habitat. And to stop killing each other over some mythical misogynist male god’s man-made barbaric laws, and stop relying on nonexistent mythical powers to save, or protect us, history teaches us that it never happened and it never will.
The criminal elite’s blinding greed and their ill-gotten gains of wealth and power brought us Global Warring and Global Warming. - Think about this for a minute, if a deadly automobile accident should occur, due to alcohol consumption, which is to blame: the drunk driver, the road, alcohol, or the car? The criminal greedy ruling elite, drunk with power and plundered undeserved wealth, drove us, the humanity over the cliff, into the destructive zone of Global Warming and now it is up to us, the public to take control, and fix it.
The many unanswered questions such as: where did it all come from, why, how, and where are we going from here, are all valid questions to answer and understand many mysteries of life, which will never be answered and solved, if we continue on our current path of greed and destruction. - The creation argument is very simple, which is that in the service of a transcendent moral obligation and concerns, we, the humankind, need to put aside our silly, idiotic, and mediocre differences for the time being and stop fussing over facts of evolution, or fantasy of creation. - Simply by looking at the overwhelming evidence, we can all agree that Earth's life sustaining ability and elements are fast disappearing due to humankind's stupidity, greedy and criminal conducts. Nothing supernatural about this fact, we are doing it, and we must stop it.
To define stupid, one might say: life is tough, but life is much tougher on stupid people, or, stupidity is doing the same thing over, and over again, expecting different results each time. Or hearing the truth, seeing the truth, knowing the truth, but still choosing to believe in the universal lies!
We are a biological species living in a biological world, well adapted to our one and only home, Planet Earth. We have originated here, on this planet with all of our peculiarities including the stupid ones that are threatening us all, today!
Furthermore, we must never forget that the main key to our success as human species, is and has always been, our ability to work together as a community, cooperating, collaborating and exchanging ideas learning from each other, understanding that a few brains work much better than one, thus adopting the best and wise course of action. But the criminal elites have done their best to destroy the natural system of community, cooperation and collaboration by utilizing the idiotic elitist notion of wealth and happiness for one, at the immense cost of human pain and suffering of millions.
We need to understand ourselves realistically in the context of a biological species and stop thinking of ourselves as semi angels. - Planet Earth is not a waiting station on the way on up to an infinite and idealized life, in a nonexistent heaven up above in the sky. Just think for a few minutes, think of what we are leaving behind for our innocent children and grand children?
Common sense, science, reason, public opinion and politics are the most powerful social forces, which could bring humanity together and unite all of us for a common cause, based on a common ground of survival, where we can exercise our extraordinary powers of unity we have, jointly, together, in order to stop Global Warring and Global Warming.
Or we can do nothing, and let our children and grand children pay the unimaginable price of pain and suffering. “Evil shall triumph only, when good people do nothing to stop it.”
Love of Reason and Humanity:
Love of humanity, is to love justice, to long for the right, to love mercy, to expose the suffering, to assist the weak, to become the voice of the voiceless, to forget wrongs and remember the benefits of unconditional charity.
Love of humanity, is to love the truth, to be sincere, to utter honest words, to love liberty, to wage relentless war against slavery in all its forms, to love wife / husband, child, family and friends, to make a happy home, to create a happy community.
Love of humanity, is to love the beauty in art, in nature, to cultivate the mind, to be familiar with the mighty thoughts that genius has expressed, the noble deeds of all the world, the cultivate courage, ethics, reason, common sense and optimism.
Love of humanity, is to give anonymously and make others happy, to fill life with the brilliance of generous unconditional acts, the warmth of kind, loving and supporting words, to discard error, to destroy prejudices and tribalism in all its forms.
Love of humanity, is to receive new facts and truths with open-mind and open-arms, to cultivate hope, to see the calm beyond the storm, the dawn beyond the night, to do the best that can be done and then to be resigned.
Love of humanity, is to spread the light of truth and hope, either to be the source of light, truth and hope: The Projector. Or to be The Mirror, that spreads and reflects the light of truth and hope to others.
This is my religion, the true religion of reason, common sense, love and the creed of science. This satisfies my soul, heart and the mind.
Therefore: I pledge allegiance to Mother Nature and our one and only home; Planet Earth, one Home, under the wisdom of mighty Mother Nature, indivisible, with life, liberty, equality, justice and happiness for all.
Thank you for your time and attention.

"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as l live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die for the harder I work the more l live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle for me. it is a sort of splendid torch that I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handling it on to future generations." George Bernard Shaw
In early 1995, I established The Venus Project Think Tank, and Venus Project Music Group, inspired by (Venus, or Anahid, Symbolizing Love & Compassion). After a few years of operation I applied for non-profit 501(c)(3) status, which was approved a couple of years later. - The Venus Project Foundation for many years have been an arts, sciences and educational, non-profit 501(c)(3), national organization, based in New York City, U.S.A. - We are advocates of reason, common sense principles and ethical standards. - Our domain name is: venusproject.org.
A few years after The Venus Project Foundation and Venus Project Music Group were established in the United States, Jacque Fresco, a city planner, began an organization and a website called: Venus Project, located in Venus, Florida, U.S.A. - His domain is: thevenusproject.com.
