    As we all know, the sea has played a very important role in the creation of life.

    Yemayá, as goddess of the seas, represents the power of the oceans. She is the universal mother and the mother of all the Orishas.

    Today, 7th September, is her day. If you are wise, you will go to the river or the sea and make an offering to her today.

    It can be a flower (white roses are her favourite) or something like a beautiful stone or shell. Or a dessert such as coconut. This can be thrown into the water while you ask for Yemayá's protection and power in your life.

    Maferefún madre. Mucho aché y blessings to all Hornets and Hornettas on this special day.

    Remember also that while the sea has power and force, every wave will break and like every bad intention, it will roll back to its point of origin.

    As I walked along the canal side yesterday, it appeared many people have made many offerings to Yemaya.

    My dog took her daily early morning dump by the River Chess today. Is that an acceptable offering?

    Might take a few more centuries before we can shed the following of religions Filbert. Keep fighting the good fight.

    The people of Pakistan could have with chucking a few flowers and some mars bars in their rivers this year.

    Apparently according to the religious nutjobs over there the floods are due to people not reading the Qu'ran enough. Forget about science and live in the stone ages is what these people want. No thanks as Hitch said many times.

    What caused floods before the Qu'ran was written?

    Religion is such a poisonous pile if sh*t. The mental gymnastics people go through to defend their vain, jealous, bloodthirsty god is amazing.

  14. Presume the fact no-one had bothered to write it. Did the floods drop off a little after it was drafted ?
