Don’t be confuddled—

I’ve just watched a wee u-toobe vid on the Big Bang Theory. It was all good clean fun but the only memorable thing about it was this treasurable snippet:

“I don’t know who discovered water … but it wasn’t a fish!”

The sort of thing I wish I’d said …

WOOF~!

“Most people believe sin began in the Garden of Eden, but it didn’t.  Sin began when God’s top angel Lucifer, decided to flex his power, and wanted to become equal to God…Isaiah 14:12-14…”

Quoted from what certainly appears to be a very devout and devoted Christian’s blog.

So before anyone might even think about the statement above, please grant me liberty to post the refresher below—

—and I wouldn’t dream of suggesting that there might be apparent contradictions inherent on/in D&DC’s blog* . (And now with due apologies I’m off to consult an expert—don’t wait up …)

OK, THEN—

Screen Shot 2019-12-31 at 19.02.13.png—WE GIVE ALL OF YOU

“climate change global warming heat death” geniuses exactly what you want. Here it is:

YOU now have

total control

 

Yes, Miss Thunberg, you now have the con. You shriek and we’ll all jump to your bidding. You, Ma’am, now have Absolute Power over all the means of production and distribution, everywhere.

You may delegate authority as you wish, and to whomsoever you wish.

NOW, PLEASE TELL ME

what you want me to do. I shall do it without reservation:

GO GET ‘EM, TIGER!

I (we) await with bated breath the outcome—command us and prepare us to maintain your Saviour changes. So:

WHAT THE HELL SHOULD WE DO FIRST?

 

The clock is ticking … Jump to it, Miss Thunberg!

In the meantime I’ll keep plodding—

dodo

—while you snap to it (you do actually have a plan?*)

Perhaps—

  • ground aircraft everywhere for a start

Good one.

But shipping uses fossils too, so we’ll

  • park all the ships in the nearest port and remove the keys.

Motor vehicles (MVs)? That’s easy—

  • only Thunberg-approved MVs may move (displaying the licence).

Coal?

  • Effective immediately, anything coal = shut down

down finger

(This is easy! I missed my calling, I should have been a Greenie)

And of course we’ll promptly close all the steel mills and aluminium smelters and oil wells, just for starters.

Nuclears may stay on only until we can decommission them properly (no point in saving us from soot if atoms get loose) …

ODT THIS AM

3-gerbilsokay … from the

OTAGO DAILY TIMES

this morning:

“WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: Fiona knew there was good in her husband Paul. But she had to endure years of his anger and verbal bashings, as he tried to deal with being sexually violated as a boy.”

Fair enough, too, some might say. But I don’t. This headline is excuciating excusianism at its unsubtle PC most very best. Play to the audience, no? Come across as the good* victim?

Line, simple thin

Screen Shot 2019-12-27 at 09.54.12.png

I gather from the context of the above headline that “what they are” doesn’t at all mean what they are, but what tinted vision might desire them to be? The headline suggests that ‘what they are’ ain’t really all that nice.

I judge ’em not by what they claim but by what they do. And ‘who they are’ is in fact what they do—all else is smokescreen, camouflage, and delusion.

THIS TIME:

any takers? No?

Wimps …

devil

ARGUS!

(Eeek!)

“… … … … Er … … Yes, Mr Satan, Sir?”

“Cool it Dog—if you make ’em think you’ll put me out of a job!”

dodo

(Argus exits stage right …) (Quietly, in low profile …)

Line, blacker copy 2.png

* It means forgiving. (You know: to err is human, to forgive Divine; and all that rubbish.)

or

you can do the good Christian thing and toddle off to Ecclesiastes (KJV) where if patient you’ll find this bit—

“The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun. {1:10} Is there [any] thing whereof it may be said, See, this [is] new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. {1:11} [There is] no remembrance of former [things;] neither shall there be [any] remembrance of [things] that are to come with [those] that shall come after.”

—which might suggest that either

  • the scribe thereof  went to the same school as Ouspensky
  • or Ouspensky was personally inspired directly by God
  • or The Scribe was into the concept of Eternal Recurrence

But I’m a fatalist myself

—even though the word ‘predetermined’ might be construed as suggestive of a ‘predeterminer’. (I prefer the word ‘inevitable’ which lacks that feeble connotation.)

AND AS ALL

rivers eventually return to source …

OH GOD—

DAMMIT~!

I want to take The Spouse into town, and here I am fighting the dragons of superstitious nonsense. Blast these indoctrinated tiny little pea-brains and all who sail in them!

OOPS …Crazy Cat

your quote, try this on for size—

“Sin involves nothing less than flagrant rebellion against the will of Almighty God. Sin cuts us off from the living God entirely. This is no trifling matter. God, as our Creator, would be perfectly righteous in sending every one of us to death for our sins. It is only by God’s grace that He doesn’t do so. In fact, the problem of our eternal, sinful separation was so bad, that God sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins on the cross (see also Dawkins’ dilemma: how God forgives sin).

—and I’m already late so shall leave the pleasure of cocking my leg against this guy’s kennel until I get home. Hell, I haven’t even finished reading his inspired verbiage yet … a pleasure I look forward to.

CUE: theme song from “Never Ending Story” …

STAND

Death chatteringAGAINST

CENSORSHIP?

Stand against those who would control the thoughts of others—and by so standing help preserve our (illusory) Freedoms?

OPEN FORUM

is the valid path to Truth. So let us hear everyone out—give all equal space on the altar to make their offerings; that we the hoi polloi may evaluate and decide whom to fund (via our taxes).

So—

 

JUDGE THEM NOT BY

WHAT THEY CLAIM,

BUT WHAT THEY DO…

 

So our grandiose illusion-of-the-day is: Academic ‘Freedom’.  Truth in universities, our temples of learning. But is it truth established by independent research/thought or by vested decree?

Listen to this guy—

—who, if he ever gets another job will damned well know when to keep his gob shut. Being a martyr carries no coin, I tell you … but my old Dad used oft to quote—

This above all, 

To thine own self be true

Dad had a sense of drama and liked to ham it up. For myself I form my own conclusions and to hell with the mob. Would only that scholars may do the same; live and let live. But that takes real courage … especially in at least one Australian university.
