Lots of wonderful things going on at our website too.... We are averaging 300 people a day and are now ranked in the top 99,000 in the US according to Alexa.com a web information company. We have had over 5000 visitors since we launched our site last month. We are averaging 6 pages a visit and 90% of our visitors have entered through Nathan's ebook/article on 50 Harmful Effects of Genetically Modified Foods. If you haven't read it, please do. It's a classic on the web and through the years it has gathered some hundred references from all over the world linking to it. The vast majority of visitors have been English speaking but we have also attracted 3 percent outside the US of which the Chinese are the largest group.
The information we provide on our website we feel is critical for implementing a shift in the western world from a death-centered culture to a life-centered one. We have recently added a google translator widget in order to assist people from all over the world to better understand our message. Please take a moment to read Nathan's main article What is raw-wisdom? in order to get a clearer understanding as to what we mean. Also he has included an article called Moving Away From a Death-centered Vision of Nature and a new one soon to be published on Moving Toward a Life-Centered Vision of Nature.

There are also new google gadgets on the right side of every page where you can get local and world news and weather. Make us your home page -- directions on how click here. This is a way of supporting us because it will bring up our ratings with the search engines and then more people will be able to find us. Several highschool students have contacted Nathan and we have also been contacted by people who are looking to educate their local Government representatives and voters.
