ON ANOTHER’S BLOG

I had a brief flurry on the topic of

TIME

—and am now throwing down a gauntlet for all comers. I’ll open with this simple range-finder—

“TIME DOESN’T EXIST”

—which I can cheerily expand*. Savage it if you can. (Sure, time exists—what else do we measure with all those clocks, hmmm?). Anyway it’s blatantly and absurdly obvious: movement is change of position (obviously with respect to time) and everything in the universe is moving …

AND NOW (ouch)

I’ll leave you with this challenge (which you won’t have time enough to accept) (so make some time) and

indulge yourself

in Fitzgerald’s translations of Khayyam’sRubaiyat. The original Khayyam is a bit different from Fitzgerald’s, so I gather that the work we love is mostly Fitz’s (he was too modest).

As for Time not existing—there are schools that hold Time to be simply an eternal ‘now’. Cute. Others think that there’s no such thing as a ‘now’ … the moment you find a now it’s promptly a ‘was’ and the next ‘might be’ becomes an is.

Any thoughts?

Enough for now*, more soon.

WOW!

Wow~!

* Notice all the ‘temporal’ references? ‘Open‘, ‘brief‘, ‘soon‘, and ‘now‘ … and I’ve only just started*  (ouch). Everything is time based. (Get used to it:  no time = no nuthin’.)

A NEW TERM

Crazy CatNEW TO ME,

at any rate.

Possibly to you too …

“realized that luxury beliefs have become fashionable status symbols. Luxury beliefs are ideas and opinions that confer status on the rich at very little cost…”

(Rubric mine.)

I wish I’d thought of that— “Luxury beliefs” … wow!

FOR YOU ALARMISTS

AND YOUR BUDDY SHEEPLEs:

—just a wee bit “Out of the mouths of Babes”? Or does she perhaps (eeek, surely no!) have a point?

Don’t ask me. We dogs are more concerned with Anthropogenic Kennel Fleasing (tell me there’s gonna be a tax on flea powder and I will … )

OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF

Vulture 2a(be careful! We aren’t allowed to call ’em ‘babes’ any more) (PC GC, U C)*.

OF YOUNGSTERS:

“Washington has many, many things that it needs to fix, and many responsibilities and duties to uphold. Global warming, however, is not one of them. Studies show that if the U.S. fully implemented the Green New Deal, the temperature of Earth would decrease by no more than 0.097 degrees Fahrenheit over a span of 30 years.  

But the price of electricity would increase by almost 10 times its current amount. The price of gasoline would increase astronomically, so that drivers would have no choice but to drive Priuses and Teslas.  

Further, it is estimated that in the state of Texas alone, such regulations would cause the loss of over a million jobs. And that’s just in Texas; across the United States, the numbers would be devastating and the effects on our economy and society possibly irreversible.”

Well now. Who would I be to find fault with any of this? I mean, the writer is a mere seventeen-year-old, for gossake. And even more worse, it’s a (brrrrr!) … girl

For me … I’ve said it before, this whole polarising ‘Global Warming’ thing is the New Religion. I’m an atheist … and here, have unto thee a nice chart—

—make of it what you will. I found it on some (damned!) agnostic website, but it seems to be ubiquitous anyway. (Except in the Alarmist literature, where those guys tend to overlook the other way a bit …)

GC? Grammatical Correctness … just so ya know …

TWO GREAT MODERN

Vulture 2aRELIGIONS:

  1. anything Abrahamic that advocates antisocial behaviour
  2. anything that offers Salvation against a non-existent threat

Truth? What is truth? Truth is whatever YOU personally believe it to be (all else is heathen heresy). The latest Great religious Polariser to enter the lists is the spectre of Man-Made Global Warming. Now regardless of whatever side of The Great Divide you personally are crusading for—do any of the other (mistaken, idiotic, doltish, gullible) proselytisers make any kind of sense at all?

Hah! I suspected as much. None. They are simpletons—despite any ‘academic’ quals; whereas you (meaning us, we) are all The Man (unsung geniuses, with the only valid grip on Reality).

ye Gods

“Aaah … but who made The Man, hey?”

 

devil

“Aah … and who promptly returned the favour, hey?”

And now, a brieffie:

Does this guy have a point? Or is he another idiot dupe?

                                     (Don’t fret—it’s less than two minutes.)

Meanwhile, back in the suburbs …

A NEW RELIGION

TRULY UNIVERSAL

Death chatteringin scope!

Try us instead of all those worn out and effete cliché belief systems—we offer the only real hope of Salvation!

ARE YOU TIRED

of God?

And Jesus?

And the Bible, Koran, Abrahamic pie-in-the sky religions, Buddhas and Krsnas and myriad deities all selling you salvation for a price?  Salvation—from what? From demons and hells conjured up by the purveyors of Salvation … to scare YOU into parting with your hard-earned cash? Or hells on Earth that you bring upon yourself by ignoring our prophecies?

WE OFFER

Salvation! Follow us and YOU will be saved! But—ignore our prophets and great doom will befall you; and your children’s children’s children, yea, for ever and ever!

UNLESS YOU CHANGE YOUR WAYS

and follow our Commandments—you will suffer the endless heat of damnation and suffer the hot torments of Hell!

YES, FRIEND—

—your world, your planet, your way of life is doomed to a heat-death … that YOU may have avoided, had you just have obeyed our commandments!

BUT THEN,

you might try listening to the Devil espousing this other point of view—

—after which you must make your own mind up and by using your own great mental powers form your own conclusions. And be warned, that to do nothing is to play into unholy hands~!

SO, FRIEND

if you truly repent your evil ways, sign up with us—

Eschew all forms of evil fossil fuels!

The ONLY path to salvation is to eschew all forms of fossil fuels: only Mother Renewables can save you us now …

devil

“Argus!”

(Eek~!)   “Yes, Mr Satan, Sir?”

“Cool it, Dog!  I had them!  Right there in the palm of my claws! And now you go making them think! Not good, Dog—”

“Sir … that’s the nicest thing you’ve ever said to me … sniff …”
