"Beautiful post.  I take it to mean, you don't need people who dig you just because you support their eccentric belief system.  Prayer is cheap. It is words of no value to me and to many others. In fact, when I hear those words,…"

"George, I think you're right. Just tactfully avoid the subject. In the grand scheme of things these people will slowly die off to be replaced with a new more humanist belief system. Let's hope so anyway. As much as I hate this "Christ…"

"Michael, don't forget about "faith."  I once defined it before a group as, "letting yourself believe in something you know can't be true."  They almost threw me out the door.  "

Craig's List Killer

Posted on February 17, 2014 at 1:00pm 15 Comments

Pennsylvania 'Craigslist killer' says she slayed dozens more across U.S. as part of satanic cult: report

 

My point is the failure of the educational system is leading to horror and chaos. Miranda Barbour was 19 years old when she and she husband committed this horrific “thrill murder.” At 19, she should have been studying science, history, comparative religion and literature. An educated mind would dismiss “Satanic cult”…

Pot Stories Review

Posted on December 24, 2013 at 6:56pm 1 Comment

OK, I'll admit it; I was down about the apathy and indifference that greeted my Pot Stories. It was my magnum opus after a life of inescapable unconventionality.  Viet Nam, NYU, the ‘60s, New York City and a smorgasbord of pot and hash, pretty much blocked the straight and narrow path.  Studying social psych with Phil Zimbardo made it improbable I would allow myself to be drafted in 1966 when I graduated, just before the Tet Offensive. In my opinion, every new Army recruit…

Ratzinger and Chaos Theory 

 

As I watched Pope Benedict's helicopter sail off from Vatican City with an escort of angels taking him to some forlorn monastery, I wished the fuckin’ thing would crash!  No bull.  Hey, I’m a nice guy.  I’m a graduate of one of the best Catholic schools in Brooklyn.  Did I really write that?  I sure did, underscored and I’ll put in bold print.

All right, the following can’t be proved.  It’s pure supposition but it’s…

Fun With "Actually"

Posted on August 10, 2013 at 11:00am 11 Comments

OK, I’m tired of hearing the word “actually.”  I’m actually sick of it.  Really. 

I mean, what does “actually” really mean?  Most dictionaries define “actually” as “in reality”, really.  I mean “really.”  But why is it actually necessary to say “in reality” every couple of sentences.  “In reality” I feel sick.  Or “in reality” I don’t like people using “actually” every few sentences. 

As opposed to what?  Fantasy or unreality, right?  But why should I have to quality my…

Hi Richard.
I agree these bellicose religious bomb devotees need to take stock of reality.

I still don't see an Endmeme group. Did you change your mind?

Hi, Richard. It took along time to find the roach story in my backup drive. It was intended to be a video, created with Poser. The learning curve was steep, and trying to create the room and objects with yet another program eventually defeated me. In order to send you the rough draft I'll  need your email. If you want you can send it to me at ruthanthonygardner@yahoo.com or friend me to use a private message. I appreciate your curiosity.
