Things are not always what they appear to be!!


I can not believe at how sappy I was when I first saw this article...I was like "awwww, that is so beautiful". A warm embrace that transcends thousands of years.

I do however have to do my thing and put a spin on it. Hmmm.....let's challenge the way that we think for a moment. The media can and will depict any story the way that they want us to think. For that reason alone, I question the suggestion of assuming that the couple was definitely a man and a woman. It has yet to be proven..and even if that is the case...could they be related. Call me a cynical person if you like, I just want to form my own opinions. I choose to look more objectively, rather than be led by the media and draw my own conclusions. I want to incite people to think for themselves today...just maybe it may spark something wonderful that transcends economic status, ethnicity and gender.

Being the thinker that I am, something that sprang to mind was involuntary death...I know that sounds morbid, but everything isn't always what it appears to be. Everyone wants to immediately believe that it was a suicide...because it seems so romantic. Let's challenge that for a moment...First!! The embrace could be due to fear, pain or suffering from an outside entity. Other cultures are known for killing people that stray from their religious beliefs or customs.

What if this couple was guilty of trying to be together without consent...killed...then placed together and buried? What if the couple are brother and sister? Again, the sex of the skeletons has yet to be determined..Think people!!!!

Or....what if it had nothing to do with love for each other at all? What if it was a form of sacrifice for some religious cult...That's been known to happen more than a few times. Take for example...


Jim Jones led almost 1,000 people into drinking poison kool-aid including nearly 280 children of which some of the partakers were killed. Murder/suicide in the name of religion? AND...had the nerve to even call it "The Last Supper"


I won't lend too much thought to negative that comes from reference to Jim Jones, but the speculation of just calling it a "Romeo and Juliet" forces us to think a way that I refuse to accept.

It was a remarkable archaeological find...scientists all over the world are excited and should be...I just want to hear the facts...let me...I mean we paint our own pictures.

Let's challenge each other to elevate our way of thinking!

Interesting blog today! The important message here has been clearly outlined by you and that is that we do not have all the facts yet. The media certainly gives us a skewed view! On this one I have to agree with everything that you have said and for ONCE I have nothing to add. Good blog-after all , all of your blogs can't be freaky, nasty or of sexual content right?

All of your blogs can be freaky,nasty and have sexual content.Right? ;o) The amazing thing that impresses me about you is your way with words no matter the content of the blog. Thanks again. Looking forward to the next one.
