God is Dead, or Not?

Some days ago, it happened to me to read an old article of The Economist. It was an article taken from the Millenium issue, the one that was in newsstand at the end of December 1999. It was in the Obituary section of the magazine; The Economist has an obituary section every week with the obituary for an important person who recently died. In the Millenium issue, something like five years ago, the obituary was for God. The article is interesting as it pictures in what ways the Almighty recently passed into history (or not so recently, do you remember Nietzsche?) even if in the end this article underlines the fact that remarkably few people deny the possibility of a supreme being. So what?
About one month ago, everybody heard in the news that a new Pope was elected: Joseph Ratzinger succeeded to Karol Woytila with the name of Benedict XVI. The same Joseph Ratzinger that in the Mass Pro eligendo romano pontifice had warned the humankind against the dictatorship of the relativism, that doesn’t see nothing as definitive and leave the ego and its desires as the ultimate measure. I think these are quite powerful words in a moment of the human history when there are so few certainties and so many doubts, even about the survival of the Almighty. However, this is the way the story goes.
In three weeks time in Italy there will be a referendum with some questions about artificial insemination, embryo’s rights and scientific research on stem cells. These are important questions and I think that they concern the private sphere of decision of everyone. The Italian Church has immediately clarified that all the Catholics must abstain from going to the referendum, making it useless because of the lack of the majority of the possible voters. In the same days, the Spanish Parliament has approved a bill in favor of the marriage between homosexuals or lesbians, in contrast with the Spanish Church (as with the Vatican) that consider this like something against the normal concept of family. And this is the point that put together these three paragraphs!
Like in the past, I ask you: what is NORMAL? What is right or wrong about thinking that God is dead or not? What is good or evil in the relativism of present days? What?As usual, a lot of questions with so few answers.

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
