The science of why Superman would need dark-colored skin to power his special abilities.
Superman should be black.
By that I mean he should have dark skin, and not that he’s African-American or any other person of color. After all, the Man of Steel is from the planet Krypton, not Earth.
In the movie Man of Steel, Superman asks his biological father why he’s different from humans. As Jor-El explains: “Earth’s Sun is younger and brighter than Krypton’s was – your cells have drunk in its radiation, strengthening your muscles, your skin, your senses.”
Photosynthetic species – including a Kryptonian like Superman – living on a world orbiting a relatively inactive star would need dark pigments to harvest light.
In an article “Ice T Explains Why He Cherishes White Women Over Other Races”, the rapper-turned-actor offered his reasons for preferring white women. Among them was this one, #4:
White girls have WAY less restrictions in the bedroom than other races. You can basically do whatever, wherever with them. And they’ll smile through it all.
To this one commenter, “Darlene” clapped back, and damn near outed him:
And in the bedroom, well we prefer a classy persona but do not underestimate the intimacy we display under the sheets. If we do not want to be dogged out or allow your latent homosexual moves to destroy our anus that is our choice.
There you have it, Terry: “We don’t do that…”
This article is the summary of the results of a fact-finding mission, presented without value judgments in favor of or against people who engage in anal sex.

From “Why Girls Should Only Have Anal Sex”:
YOU SHIT CUM
How is this nothing other than hilarious? For a millisecond it feels empowering to be expelling baby-creation liquid from your female body, and then you remember that it’s coming out of a tunnel for shit. The image is so bizarre and backwards, it it’s like a college art project on recontextualization. Or feminist literature. “POOPING SEMEN: At the Dawn of Matriarchy.” 
The Circle of Manias
Part of the thrill, though, is disobeying your fundamental physiology. Butt sex is fun for the same reason it’s fun to piss off a teacher or take a piss on a cop car, or burn down a church—except, get this, the only authority that you’re rebelling against is yourself. 
The Circle of Shit
No matter whether you use an enema or spent an hour earlier in the day getting rid of everything in your system, there’s still a chance you could poop during anal. It’s a fact of life, and it’s perfectly okay. “Think of his penis as a plunger,” says Ross. “Sometimes, it dips in and might bring out a few particles or smearing. Other times, the plunger creates enough suction that a large amount of stool is evacuated.” It can sound kind of terrifying, but if you’re using a condom and it’s just a little, all you have to do is roll it off, toss it in the trash, and change the sheets ASAP, says Rachael Ross, M.D., Ph.D., co-host of The Doctors.
“Some guys who are into anal are also sort of turned on by the poop smell and seeing particles of poop throughout the event,” says Ross. “Don’t be embarrassed.” 
* Mainstream and industry endorsement of “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom”:
- A large group of artists, including Martin Scorsese and Alec Baldwin, and SCHOLARS signed a legal brief arguing the film’s artistic merit.
- TV Guide gave the film a mixed review awarding it a score of 2.5/4 stating it had “moments of undeniably brilliant insight”.
- A 2000 poll of critics conducted by The Village Voice named it the 89th greatest film of the 20th century.
- In 2010, the Toronto International Film Festival placed it at No. 47 on its list of The Essential 100 films.
- According to film review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, reports that 69% of 26 surveyed critics gave the film a positive review; the average rating is 6.4/10.
- Academy Award & Palme D’Or wining director Michael Haneke named the film his fourth favorite film when he voted for the 2002 Sight and Sound poll.
- Award-winning comedian and actor David Cross named it one of his favorite films.
- Acclaimed filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder also cites it as one of his 10 favorite movies.
- Award-winning director John Waters said, “Salo is a beautiful film…it uses obscenity in an intelligent way…and it’s about the pornography of power.”

pass into (a different state, especially a worse one); degenerate.
The ‘animal’ form and behavior which man adopts for the external vehicle of his consciousness does not make man an animal, any more than the hirsute coverings of the animal render it part of the plant kingdom. (177)
Creationism vs. Darwinism: The False Dichotomy
The way in which these esoteric allegories and metaphors have been simplistically travestied by ignorant medieval theologians and then allowed to maintain their existence by modern ‘creationists’ causes nothing but confusion. The fact that these distortions are currently regarded as the only alternative to Darwinism and its theory of evolution by chaotic natural selection, shows just how far modern understand both of Nature’s workings and of ancient philosophical teaching technique has gone astray.
Creation as understood by the Ancients
We start with a set of clearly stated assumptions –
- There are planes or states of being and consciousness other than those of which we humans are generally aware.
- A state of being and a state of consciousness are not the same.
For example, we and the animals and plants and minerals all exist within the same objective, terrestrial state of being; but humans both experience and rationalize higher states of consciousness which the other kingdoms cannot access.
- Whilst a state of consciousness may require some form of bodily organism in order to perceive and experience it, that bodily form and its faculties must be appropriate to the associated state(s) of being within which the consciousness itself exists. (169)
Why there’s no missing link
The ancient tradition had it that there was an absolute break between the soul nature of each kingdom in Nature – hence there could never be any such thing as the objective ‘missing evolutionary link’ which Darwinian evolutionists hope to find.
Thus, the ‘animal’ form and behavior which man adopts for the external vehicle of his consciousness does not make man an animal, any more than the hirsute coverings of the animal render it part of the plant kingdom. (177)
The Reality of Enlightenment
Understandably, just as our considerably expanded consciousness gives us access to perspectives of possibility of which the Animal kingdom does not even begin to be aware, so the spiritual Adept – having made an equivalent onward transition – is said to have access to a range of faculty and inclusively wider perception of which we can only be aware in theory, or by virtue of descriptions passed down. However, something of it has been perceived by humans in fragmentary moments of deep mystic introspection. (174)
It is commonly imagined by the majority of people that just because a being is far more evolved spiritually, its nature must be all sweetness and light and thus a permanent joy to be in contact with all the time. However, there is no rational justification for this entirely simplistic viewpoint. The psychic power and influence in any ordinary person’s aura becomes supercharged through either intensity of subjective focus of simple enthusiasm. It is due to this that the infectiously magnetic nature of open enthusiasm or of flaming oratory is capable of developing in others a sense of group purpose and involvement – and this for either good or evil. Charisma is a very double-edged faculty.
But just imagine to what degree a really advanced being’s presence would be expected to produce automatic side-effects in a less powerful aura. It would be equivalent to that of a small-scale generator put right in the immediate vicinity of a powerful electro-megnetic force field’, in other words, complete disorientation and ‘electrical overload’. Thus, one of the major effects of spiritual development involves an inevitably commensurate increase in psycho-spiritual power which needs to be approached (or used) very carefully. (172)
If God is Real, Why Won’t He Show Himself?
Practical common sense should in any case tell us that the power of such a divinity making even a fraction of its presence felt within an unprepared individual nature would result in no less than immediate disintegration of all that person’ faculties of sensory perception – if nothing else. As Euripides is reputed to have said, ‘Those whom the gods wish to destroy [for their arrogance], they make mad’ Even in the potential case of the gods appearing in the vicinity of ordinary mortals for any length of time for supposedly beneficial reasons, we would anticipate psychologically disruptive side effects.
Where’s the line between a “black” person who can pass for “white”, and a “white” person who can pass for “black”?
Before the One-Drop Rule
America used to classify its ethnic African minorities into two categories.
Those with no known non-African ancestry were known as “Black”, “Negro” (apparently for Spanish speakers) and “Colored” because everyone else, apparently, was clear.
Anyone with African and any other ancestry, especially west Asian (“European”), were known as Mulattoes.
West Asians (also known as “Europeans”) with no visible or known African ancestry, were called “White” even though white is a color, so technically they were “colored”, too. (If you are confused about the use of the terms ‘west Asia’ and ‘West Asian’, click here.)
At some point, the ‘Mulatto’ category was abolished, and all people with any African ancestry were lumped into the first category. Thus formed the “One-Drop Rule”: if you had any known or visible African ancestry, you were Black/Negro/Colored.
But what about people with so little African ancestry, or specifically so few African genes expressed in their phenotype, that they appeared West Asian or “white”?
They ‘passed’ for “white”. They hid their African heritage, abandoned the non-passable members of their family (often at their suggestion) and blended into the dominant west Asian society. They did this to qualify themselves for affirmative action, also known as “white” privilege: 100% quotas at colleges and universities, 100% quotas on in the workforce, 100% quotas in the military, access to credit and housing, and basic human rights.
You never know who could be passing for “white”. With as much as 25% African ancestry, a person can have blonde hair and blue eyes. Even without those, a person with African could have little enough of it showing to not be swarthier, as Benjamin Franklin, put it, than the swarthier races of west Asia. (Keep in mind, as the first and frequent settlers in West Asia, Africans have contributed considerably to their genes and phenotype.)
More importantly, a person could be passing and not know it. If your father passed with 25% African ancestry, then you are a full 1/8th (12.5%) African, but your father obviously wouldn’t have told you. Keep in mind that 12.5% is as much west Asian ancestry as the average African-American has, after centuries of pure Africans mixing with multi-ethnic and/or west Asians.
In fact, an estimated 28 million, representing ~10%, of west Asian Americans have African ancestry. Those “white” people are “black” (according to the One-Drop Rule) and don’t even know it! There are almost as many “whites” with “black” blood than there are “blacks”!
What About Rachel?
Is she in that 28 million?
She wouldn’t even know it if she was, like the white supremacist who found out he was 14% African (making him, therefore, “black”). So how do we know she’s not? How do we know that, according to the one-drop rule she shouldn’t be called “black” or African-American (Spanish was dropped as an official language at some point, so “Negro” is out of fashion)?
Only a genetic test could prove she has no African blood, and if she does, she’s “black”. This isn’t a stretch. We regularly celebrate and/or out supposedly “black” people who look completely white, because they have a mixed ancestor even generations ago.
Genes affect more than just phenotype. That’s why Don Cheadle, with dark brown skin, tightly-curled hair, and broad facial features, can still be 19% west Asian: his west Asian genes don’t express themselves in his phenotype.
There are genes for everything: immunity, hormones, metabolism and a lot of things we don’t think about. Genes also affect behavior and personality. Genes are even passed through breast milk- and how many west Asian Americans have been suckled by African women throughout history? What’s more, memory is passed through genes.
So it’s perfectly normal, or at least possible, for a person to have genes affecting those areas coming from an ancestor that they don’t physically resemble.
This explains “white” people who identify with a distant African ancestor, and why so many African-looking people have difficulty opposing “white” supremacy: it’s in their blood.
“Race is a social construct.”
That really is true.
Where I live in Arabia, “blackness” is defined by the opposite of the one-drop rule: if your skin is not very dark, or if you have loosely-curled hair, or a thin nose or lips- signs of possible non-African ancestry, you’re NOT “black.”
My dark-skinned African-American friend, who inherited wavy hair from his Hispanic mother, was told by his Afro-Arab wife that he’s “white”! “White” to them means one-drop of non-African blood!
Further, Arabs identify a person by his or her father. No matter who the mother is, the child is an Arab if the father is Arab. There are Indonesians who are 100% Indonesian in language and appearance, but are considered Arabs because there is an unbroken paternal line to Yemen.
By that logic, by having a “white” forefather, many African-Americans are actually “white”!
For Jews, it’s the complete opposite: the child of a Jewish mother is Jewish, no matter who the father is.
By that logic, my dark-skinned African-American friend is “white” because of his West Asian maternal grandmother. And the dark-skinned son of my friend, who has a west Asian mother and ethnic African father, is also “white”.
And I have one friend who is “white” to the Arabs because his skin is light brown, “black” to Americans because his father is ethnically African, and Jewish to the Jews because he has a Jewish mother. He should go on tour!
The American concept of race, and every concept of race, and the concept of race itself, are all stupid. Black? White? So what’s a “mixed” person, then- Grey? What should I call my friend’s wife who has a Chinese grandfather- Dark Yellow? We’re just making it up as we go along- and mostly getting it wrong…
Don’t Ask Rachel
I’m not defending or attacking Rachel Dolezal. Her family and identity issues are hers and her family’s: not ours.
I just want to know why African-Americans get so happy when they find out a “white” person is really black, but offended when a “white” person says they are “black”.
I wanna know how a west Asian woman pretending to be African can provide more leadership than ethnic Africans who claim to be African, and are supposedly proud of it.
That’s what matters- not what she did, but what you have.
The whos, whats, whens, wheres, whys and hows of urban gardening… with picture proof that you can do it!
YOU! Your family, neighbors and friends.
- Growing your own food, herbs, spices and medicine
- Supporting bee populations by planting flowers they can collect pollen from, and trees they can build hives in (Bee populations are collapsing, and without them plants can’t cross-pollinate)
- Mulching and Composting to create fertile soil to use in garden beds or potted plants
Why not now?
Any place you can find or put dirt.
- If you have a yard, you’re already good to go.
- If you live in an apartment or condo, you should be able to ask the property owner for permission to use a plot for growing.
- If all else fails, buy some pots or make them out of used buckets or bottles. You could also buy a large bin from a local home supply store.
- Make the garden in your house, or on your porch or patio!
- To eat better food- the radishes we grew last year were so much more sweeter and tangier than the ones I bought yesterday.
- To avoid pesticides and GMO: If you don’t put them, no one else will. Growing your own food gives you knowledge and control over what you and your loved ones put in and on their bodies
- To save money- You can’t believe how many tomatoes a tomato patch can yield. When we harvested, we HAD to give some away, eat some, then freeze the rest for later.
- A new, healthy hobby- Gardening is VERY fulfilling, and hard work = good exercise! Remember how fun it was play in the mud as a kid? It still is!
- Learn about nature and connect with the earth
- Have food supplies in times of crisis- You never know!
- Extra income- Sell your surplus at a farmer’s market!
- Interior decorating- Beautify your living/work space with flowers, and remember that indoor plants naturally purify the air and increase oxygen!
- Tools you’ll need: shovel, hoe, rake
- Pots: Buy some, or use any used buckets or bottles (a great way to recycle by the way)
- Study the local climate to learn when is the best time to plant what, and how to plant it. Ask a neighbor, elderly family member or anyone with experience farming or gardening for advice (a great way to make friends). Buy the appropriate seeds and plant them!
- To create the right soil, you could mulch or compost. This basically means letting organic waste decompose in dirt, and then using that dirt, which will be very rich in nutrients, to plant in. You can start by collecting all your organic waste- eggshells, food that has gone bad, coffee grounds, tea leaves, plant rinds, etc.- and burying it at the end of the day. This should be done AWAY from your house, because it will attract bugs. Make sure you cover each deposit well, so it will actually decompose, and not smell.
Our Experience with Urban Gardening
I live in an apartment complex in Saudi Arabia- not exactly the place you’d expect to be able to plant crops. But you’d be surprised what you can grow here:
We’ve successfully planted and grown orange trees, lemon trees, garlic, potatoes, eggplant, chili peppers, radish, onions, tomatoes, coriander, aloe vera, basil, and various flowers.
A year ago this month I had two major setbacks: tearing my achilles (unable to do work for 5 months) and was moved by my university from a house on the compound that had a yard, to an apartment complex. At the same time, my wife was also pregnant with our 4th child, and summer was coming. It wasn’t looking good for our garden…
But we found a few solutions.
1) Potted plants
When we tried to move our lemon and orange trees from the ground to pots, they died. But we bought new ones, and they’re coming along:
We also have flowers and aloe vera in pots inside our house and on our patios:
Aloe vera, by the way, is a very effective medicine. We use its juice for cuts, sunburn, rashes, and aftershave (no more razor bumps!) It’s a hardy plant that just needs water, so I recommend it to everyone.
2) Find potential garden beds and use them
There are a lot of empty plots in the concrete around our house that weren’t being used. The one right below our apartment is now growing flowers, coriander (which we just harvested), and eggplant.
Another one nearby has chili peppers, garlic, onion, coriander, peppermint, and tomatoes.
In the highest terrace, we just put two trees of a local species that bees like to use for hives. We hope that they’ll also provide shade in the extremely hot Arabian summers when they mature.
They don’t look like they’re doing too well, but that usually happens when you re-pot plants. As long as they bounce back before summertime, they should be fine. If they don’t, we’ll try again. You win some, you lose some, especially starting off. It takes patience…
3) DIY Compost Heap
I just dug a compost bed this morning. It was a sand bed full of rocks, concrete, glass, and some scary-looking red beetles! My girls and I dumped out all the rocks and glass.
I had to take a hammer to the concrete (dumped there by local workers) and before shoveling it all out. Then I dug up half of it, dumping the sand on the other side.
To compost, I’ll just take our day’s- or meal’s- organic leftovers or garbage, dump it on the sand, then bury it, like so:
By this fall- which is planting season here due to the extreme heat of summer- the waste should be decomposed. We may or may not have to add dirt to it before using. We’ll see.
4) Hire a gardener
OK, I cheated.
With me in crutches and then a cane, my wife in late pregnancy and then postpartum, we really couldn’t do anything. Luckily, for us, we met a very man with an honorable disposition named Muhi adDeen who works as a groundskeeper on campus. His expertise and willingness to help have been essential, and we hope he will continue to share his expertise with us and our children.
5) Use House Plants
These are usually very low maintenance- just flowers or vines that you have to water a few times a week. If you travel, make sure you have a reliable neighbor take over while you’re gone.
We’re open to suggestions. Send yours in the comments and I’ll put them into the article. Let’s learn and grow together!
Pale-skin is no more adapted to cold, dark climates than it is to anywhere else.
Contrary to popular claims, pale skin is not an adaptation to lack of sunlight. If that were so, then the darkest places in West Asia (“Europe”), which have the world’s palest people, wouldn’t have the highest rates of skin cancer. If pale skin “evolved” because people needed to absorb more sunlight rather than be protected from it, then the sparse sunlight of northwest Asia (northern “Europe”) would not harm the pale people there. But this is not so. In fact, that is the place of the highest rates of skin cancer:
It should be noted that, this is an EU map, and Norway is not part of the EU. If it were, it would likely be amongst the other northern countries (Sweden,Denmark & Finland) with the highest skin cancer rates.
Now the following maps does not list country names, but if you have some knowledge of where the previous chart’s leading countries for skin cancer are, you will see that they coincide with paler skin (1st map below) and paler eyes & hair (2nd map below).
So if pale skin were an adaptation to sparse sunlight, then why are pale-skinned people so ill-adapted?
And if you don’t need skin color to be protected from the sun in dark, cold, snowy climates, then how do you explain snowburn?
You’ve heard this “theory” many times, but it’s simply not true. If it were so, Far West Asian (Western “European”) explorers would not have needed winter clothes in South America while brown-skinned natives went naked:
Despite the extremely cold climate in which they lived, early Yahgan wore little to no clothing until after their extended contact with Europeans. They were able to survive the harsh climate because:
They kept warm by huddling around small fires when they could, including in their boats to stay warm. The name of “Tierra del Fuego” (land of fire) was based on the many fires seen by passing European explorers.
They made use of rock formations to shelter from the elements.
They covered themselves in animal grease.
Over time, they had evolved significantly higher metabolisms than average humans, allowing them to generate more internal body heat.
Their natural resting position was a deep squatting position, which reduced their surface area and helped to conserve heat.” (wikipedia)
This is what cold-adapted humans look like:
And if paleness were an adaptation to cold and lack of sunlight, then why aren’t native Siberians and Alaskans pale?
(Photos from Real History Worldwide)
White Skin for a Black Sun?
Pale-skinned people need as much- or more- protection from the cold than everyone else. And even in the darkest of places, their skin is still not protected from the sun. So neither the pale skin, nor the relatively narrower facial features, nor any musculo-skeletal or cranial features of the “white” “race” are an adaptation to cold.
Pale skin is not suited to sunlight, at least not the light of this sun. So why do people keep claiming that it is? Perhaps the reference is not to this sun, but the Black Sun of Theosophy & Esoteric ‘Nazism’/Esoteric Hitlerism, popularized in the Soundgarden hit “Black Hole Sun”?
Could the source of energy and life on earth have once been another sun, to which pale skin was suited? Could the earth have later broken away somehow until being captured by the gravity of our current star? That would certainly make sense out legends of floods and underground civilizations, and the documented Ice Age and need of West Asians (“Europeans”) to live in caves. Here’s an interesting video about life on earth between suns:
64,000 African-American women and girls are missing. Where are they? The dark past of the American medical history, and the miraculous applications of melanin, hold important clues…
Dedicated to Kenyon Mason
Bring Back Our Girls
64,000 African-Americans girls are reported missing, but nobody’s looking for them. Why?
Despite representing 12.85% of the population, black Americans accounted for nearly 226,000 — or 34% — of all missing persons reported in 2012. According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, the comparison with other racial groups is unfavorable: Whites and Hispanics are a combined 80.1% of the population, but account for 60% of missing persons.
This is especially troubling when you break down the numbers by age. Black and Missing reports that 37% of missing minors and 28.2% of missing adults in 2013 were black. No fewer than 270,000 minorities have gone missing since 2010, 135,000 of whom were black and 64,000 were black women, according to the Atlanta Black Star.
Essence points to a 2010 report titled “Missing Children in National News Coverage,” which found that while black children accounted for 33.2% of missing children that year, the media exposure rate was an unimpressive 19.5%. While black men go missing at statistically higher rates, coverage of black female disappearances is particularly telling in light of the attention similar stories get when white women are involved.
“In the field, I’ve seen a majority of black missing children classified as runaways, who don’t get Amber Alerts.”
No way the same US government and media that gave so much attention to 2-300 Nigerian girls would ignore 64,000(!) its own, unless there was a reason. The most likely reason is organ harvesting, and the the skin is the body’s biggest organ. Considering America’s dark history of medical exploitation of Blacks, this isn’t as far-fetched as it seems at first.
First of all, there’s a long history of medical research using unwitting/unwilling African-American women for medical experiments:
on the 19th century medical plantation—a locality spatially separate from the agricultural plantation—black women’s bodies were imagined as the ideal test subjects of research and innovation within what became modern gynecology.
That trend has continued from Emancipation until today, at the GOVERNMENT level: ”
throughout their long history in the USA, African-Americans have been secretly used as guinea pigs for medical experimentation by various American governments
It’s a MARKET. The medical industry cannot advance without unwitting/unwilling Black subjects. Cells secretly harvested, and later cultivated from a Black woman are the source of ALL cells used for medical research- vaccines, cloning, testing, etc. “This represented an enormous boon to medical and biological research” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks
So, yes, if a multi-billion dollar, multi-national, centuries old industry is based on the bodies of stolen and captive Black female bodies, then it will continue along the same lines that it has succeeded: stealing black women, experimenting with them, and harvesting their biological material.
Melanin: More Than Just A Color
You also need to be aware of just how badly pale (“white”) people actually need melanin, the many ways that they use it, and the price of melanin on the market.
Though people will go so far as to sniff nasal sprays to increase their melanin, its medical and cosmetic applications go far beyond tanning. Let’s look at one example: Meladine.
Meladine is “an “Accessory to a Surgical Laser Instruments used for Hair Removal” to enhance the effects of lasers for the treatment of non-pigmented hair”.
- It “simply deposits natural melanin into the hair follicle which aids the laser in targeting the hair follicle for removal… simply deposits natural melanin into the hair follicle which aids the laser in targeting the hair follicle for removal.”
Now you tell me, wheretf do they get this “natural melanin” that has to be so frequently applied? They certainly don’t say so on their site: http://www.sunrisemedicalsupplies.com/FAQMeladine
So, to think that the pharmaceutical industry, which, like any other industry, puts profits before morals, would take “unethically-sourced” melanin is probably a very sane thought, making the opposing thought, of course, insane.
Melanin: Fountain of Youth?
Let’s go back to Henrietta Lacks, whose cells are the source of all medical research cells. What made her cells so special? They wouldn’t die.
The cells from Henrietta’s tumor were given to researcher George Gey, who “discovered that [Henrietta’s] cells did something they’d never seen before: They could be kept alive and grow.” Before this, cells cultured from other cells would only survive for a few days. Scientists spent more time trying to keep the cells alive than performing actual research on the cells, but some cells from Lacks’s tumor sample behaved differently from others. George Gey was able to isolate one specific cell, multiply it, and start a cell line. Gey named the sample HeLa, after the initial letters of Henrietta Lacks’ name. As the first human cells grown in a lab that were “immortal” (they do not die after a few cell divisions), they could be used for conducting many experiments. (wikipedia)
This was probably because of their melanin. My theory is that Lacks’s cells were the first black person’s cells harvested and tested, hence their surprise at the difference melanin made.
There’s a popular expression “Black don’t crack”, and it’s true that healthy melanated people who eat a healthy natural diet don’t seem to age. This woman is 74 years old!
So the need for melanin goes far beyond avoiding skin cancer. It’s the key to life itself.
When you consider that a body fails to produce melanin only if and when the pineal gland is calcified- a fossilized organ in the center of a living brain!- you see how melanin is involved in much more than skin color and skin cancer. Read this astounding comment to the Washington Post article “Scientists Find A DNA Change That Accounts For White Skin”
Europeans also have a calcified Pineal Gland which is responsible for the production of melanin (skin pigmentation), melatonin (the hormone that induces sleep), and seratonin (responsible for strong mental health and ‘happiness’) this is NOT true for Albinos. Albinos can produce a child of COLOR this is NOT true for Europeans. 70-80% of Europeans have a calcified Pineal Gland, whereas Black people have a fully functioning Pineal Gland.
Melanin is a natural skin block from UV rays of the sun. This is why White people put on things like sunscreen. Sunscreen is nothing more than an artificial form of melanin. Melanin basically converts sunlight into vitamin D which is essential for bone growth, and the natural protection against diseases. Black people, much like plants, LITERALLY convert sunlight into vitamin D. White people can’t do that that is why, as the article states, EVERYTHING has Vitamin D added to it. That is for the benefit of WHITE PEOPLE not for us. That is ALSO the reason that Black people are the most prone to being lactose intolerant and White people AREN’T. You are NOT supposed to drink milk after a certain age because you body no longer NEEDS IT. White people do. How many animals in nature do you see still drinking their mother’s milk after a certain age?? You don’t because they DON’T NEED IT. Black people need to STOP drinking milk.
The calcification of the Pineal Gland meant the extremely LOW production of melanin which caused White people’s skin to become ‘white’ NOT Albino white. I guarantee if you do some research into decalcifying your Pineal Gland which is most commonly known as the ‘Third Eye’ you’ll find about a million websites on it. Now why is that?? Because White people are just now finding out what the Pineal Gland is FOR. They used to think it was an unnecessary appendage like the appendix. So they have to mislead you into thinking it is nothing more than a small genetic mutation that ‘doesn’t matter’.
To Infinity and Beyond
Watch the following short video, showing how the skin looks in UV light. It gets really interesting at 1:18 :
There definitely are planets with atmospheres similar enough to ours to sustain human life. However, they may not have the same kind of sun or source of light, or the same kind of atmospheric protection from the many different types of light and other radiation that ours does.
