I’ll say God seems to have a kind of laid-back management style I’m not crazy about. I’m pretty much anti-death. God looks by all accounts to be pro-death. I’m not seeing how we can get together on this issue, he and I.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. This is all so sad and depressing. This is off message and so please forgive me. From the recent news, I am wondering if he was not a closet gay man who was very conflicted because of his Muslim faith.

    I read the following on 7/13/14 Aljazeera article by Edward Wycoff Williams:

    “Born in the suburbs of Seattle to a close-knit middle-class American family, Omar said he felt pressure to live up to his family’s expectations, as a man and as a Muslim.”

    “At UCLA, he attended prayers and participated in the Muslim Student Association. But in secret, he started dating men. Unable to reconcile being gay with his faith, he stepped away from Islam.”

    “I did try to divorce myself from Islam because I was gay,” says Omar, who asked to be identified by only his first name. “Growing up, I was taught that being gay was not OK … You were completely excommunicated or lived on the fringes or had to come up with a lot of solutions that weren’t honest.”

    He hated himself. This would create a lot of internal rage that exploded killing himself and so many innocent decent peoples.

    I am convinced this was not about siding with ISIS but with wanting to save face with his family.

    • From what I’ve read, he was born in Queens, I think, not in Seattle ….. very close to the donald …. that angle is coming through now. He may have been a closeted gay. He was married and had a child. The ex-wife spoke yesterday about how bad the marriage was … abuse, violence, etc.
      So many more details are still surfacing. It’s still ongoing …. 😦

  2. No, I don’t agree with the quote about God.
    Goddess/God created all of life and sustains life, not death, that is what humans do (kill without any reservations, all to frequently, thus “love death”), it’s wrong to blame God for free will that is God given, which humans abuse.
