Is maternal fillicide the result of mental illness?

Some mothers commit the unthinkable act of maternal fillicide because they are mentally ill or sick. According to the news story, "why do moms kill their children"- the Washington Post many people commit this unthinkable act because they are mentally sick with disease. Lashuan Haris, who is a 23 year old homeless mother had a history of schizophrenia and other mental illness. According to multiple family members, Lashuan told them a week before the maternal fillicide that she was going to feed her children to sharks. A week later she walked to pier 7 in Oakland and tossed her children in the bay. She told the police that if she threw her children into the water then they could reunite with the gods of heaven. This shows that it was out of her control and most of the mothers who commit maternal fillicide have mental illness.

How can Taoism deepen our understanding about Chinese history?

Taoistic texts help to deepen our understanding about Chinese history In many ways. One way these texts helped our understanding of Chinese history is their religion and philosophy. Their philosophy of that Taoism is degenerate. Although back then Taoism was a degenerate philosophy now it seems totally different. Now it is a part of their culture and religion. "Taoism is embraced as part of the traditional Chinese culture that the government is promoting".

Why would got let such a terrible thing happen?

The story of Moshe Yosef Daum and Fela Nussbaum is similar to the book of job in many ways and thoughts. One thing that is similar in both theses religious stories is the question why would God let a thing so terrible happen. In the book of job, God killed jobs family and made him suffer for no apparent reason. Why would God do that? Does he like watching people suffer? Is that why he created the Haulocaust that killed millions of people. Although he stores are similar in a couple ways, they also differ. One way they differ is the Haulocaust is proven to happen but the book of job isn't. I believe that the book of job was a reality at one point. Do you?

The book of job part 1

The book of Job and the Old Testament both relate and differ in a couple ways. For example in both stories God pressures people for his own pleasure. Gods instability or insecurity of himself makes him do terrible things. Such as in the Old Testament make Abraham kill his most loved value, his son. Many people ask why does God, "the most superior one of all" force people to do terrible things, and why does he do such terrible things to people? My though on this is maybe God isn't as powerful as people think he is, and maybe God isn't perfect. Another way both of these stories relate is in both of their stories the death of loved ones or near death of loved ones played a role. In the book of job, his whole family died because God created winds that blew over and destroyed the house they were in. And in the old testement God told Abraham to prove his loyalty and faith to him by telling Abraham to kill his own son. God puts other people in danger just so he feels superior and looked up to. Also in both stories he main characters are very religious and are afraid of God and his power. They both pray and obey his command thinking that God with protect them but he is making their lives even worse. Although God may be some people superiors, he may not be the most trustworthy person.

How do I feel about the high school?

So far the best thing about high school is the freedom the teachers give you. For example they give you iPads as a student, and they trust you to pay attention and only use it when necessary. Another way you have more freedom in the high school is that for you lunch or free period, your allowed to go out. For example I have lunch seventh period, so I go to the pizzeria a block away and eat there. Although you have a lot of freedom in the high school, you also have a lot of expectations and work that has to be completed. Such as getting to class on time, it is a little more difficult then said because he classes are spread out all along the school. For example I have art near the gym and math near the parking lot. I have to jog pretty fast to get there on time. Although the long walks to class are bad, that isn't the worst thing about the high school. The number of tests a week is the worst thing about high school. It is very time consuming to study for so many tests. I have at least two to three major exams a week and I'm only a freshman! Although it is very time consuming to study for tests
and the long walks to classes, in the end it pays off. I am looking forward for the rest of the year and the responsibilities that come with it.

Who really is God/

After reading Genesis 6-9 I realized that God has emotion and isn't perfect. I learned that he can get mad and that he has the power to do very bad things such as he did. I also learned that God isn't the nicest person in the world. He said "I have determined to make an end to all flesh". This means he wants to kill everyone. This leads me to my conclusion that God might not be as perfect as some people say tha he is.

Who should take the blame?

I would blame the serpent for getting Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden. I say that because the serpent convinced eve to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge and evil. The serpent convinced eve that God doesn't have the power and is not capable to kill her. He said " you will surely not die". And because the serpent convinced her to eat the fruit, she then convinced Adam to eat the apple and God was not happy. He punished not only the serpent for convincing them to try the fruit but he also punished Adam and Eve and kicked them out of the the garden.
