Awens to All:

Upon BillMC mentioning I-Ching, I did a quick Google on that and got this Wikipedia Listing:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Ching

The core of the I Ching is a Western Zhou divination text called the Changes of Zhou. The name Zhou yi literally means the "changes". The "changes" involved have been interpreted as the transformations of hexagrams, of their lines, or of the numbers obtained from the divination.

Archaeological evidence shows that Zhou dynasty divination was grounded in cleromancy, the production of seemingly random numbers to determine divine intent. The Zhou yi provided a guide to cleromancy that used the stalks of the yarrow plant, but it is not known how the yarrow stalks became numbers, or how specific lines were chosen from the line readings.




There is a Link to a I-Ching Divination Link of Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Ching_divination

In it, it states that not only do they use 50 Yarrow Sticks but also Coins, Dice, Beads, Rice Grains as well as Astrology.

Wikipedia states that I-Ching is a form of Cleromancy which has another Wikipedia Listing:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleromancy

Cleromancy is a form of sortition, casting of lots, in which an outcome is determined by means that normally would be considered random, such as the rolling of dice.


Upon reading this over, I have found that there is so many forms of Divination involved with I-Ching and Zhou-yi that it is a bit confusing.

My goodness am I sick of hearing about this whining woman.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47276572

"Shamima Begum - the schoolgirl who fled London to join the Islamic State group in Syria - has said she never wanted to be an IS "poster girl".

Ms Begum, who has just given birth, said she now wants the UK's forgiveness and supports "some British values".

She told the BBC while it was "wrong" innocent people died in the 2017 Manchester attack, it was "kind of retaliation" for attacks on IS."

So she wants forgiveness yet still tries to justify murderous terrorist attacks on the UK?

Why are the LEFTIE BBC continuing to give this horrible terrorist all this sympathetic publicity?

You're not coming back here chuck. No. No. No.
