I was having a discourse with Ps Ng Wah Lok on the Olympics yesterday, while watching the finals of the singles badminton match, and I asked a question:
Is the Olympics of demonic origin?
Why did I ask such seemingly riduculous question? Don't I know the whole world is watching the Beijing Olympics and without a doubt it is a major attraction that has drawn all our attention away from the non-sensical fightings, racial tension, injustice, wars and corruption that is going on all around us?
What is the Olympics and what is the origin?
The Olympic Flame or Olympic Torch is a symbol of the Olympic Games. Commemorating the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus, its origins lie in ancient Greece, when a fire was kept burning throughout the celebration of the ancient Olympics....
The Olympic Torch today is ignited several months before the opening celebration of the Olympic Games at the site of the ancient Olympics in Olympia, Greece. Eleven women, representing the roles of priestesses, perform a ceremony in which the torch is kindled by the light of the Sun, its rays concentrated by a parabolic mirror.
The Olympic Torch Relay ends on the day of the opening ceremony in the central stadium of the Games.
