NWO, Illuminati, Blood Moons, And Hot Dogs: Practicing Political Atheism While Living In A Zealously Theistic Country

It seems over the last decade we have more things to be afraid of.

Between the advent of engineered disease, and surreptitious attacks of mind boggling computer viruses that could potentially bring down banking systems globally, it would seem we need to look at everything we…

World Reaction/Capital Punishment

Warning: This is a long essay!

Although capital punishment received a three-year hiatus in 1973, it was right back on the books by 1976.

Since then, the United States executed more than 1,000 prisoners placing it in the limelight with…

What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?

http://tonyjordan37814.blogspot.com/

One thing that every Christian regardless of whether they are fundamentalist, moderate, or liberal, believes, is that the universe and everything in it, including the earth and all living on it, is the product of design by a perfect being (God).

Jews and Muslims share this belief also to a greater or lesser degree. What, however, would be the nature and…

Thoughts of an Aug. 9 birthday child

“Hell no, we won’t go!”

60s anti-war slogan



It’s nice to have a birthday in the summer – guaranteed good weather (almost).  My early parties were well attended (everybody home from vacation) and outdoors.  But I know why seniors tend to disregard birthdays: as the number of enjoyed August 9ths gets more numerous, so does the number of anticipated August 9ths shrink.

As a speechwriter, I learned such obscure facts as my shared birthdate with Francis Scott…

Mondo Diablo Episode 334: A Christmas History Timeline

This week I read a list of solstice and Christmas events in history, starting with the Newgrange around 2500 BCE: this is apparently not that far from Noah's Flood, which was in 2304 BC, according to Ken Ham. Considering Stonehenge was supposed to have started around 2800 BCE and added to for another thousand years is quite curious indeed. Seems that Noah's immediate family must have made their…

I wonder if they are willing to give me all their money and assets on May 20th?

Mondo Diablo Episode 300: It's a Conspiracy II





Does anyone think I need to celebrate because we have a big, round, and soft number here? I mean, should I wait until 500? That could be a long time from now.



Anti-irregardless, I hope everyone knows that this is one way to find out about what I'm doing, but there's also Facebook, which I, uh, "do." You can find "my facebook" at… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 299: It's a Conspiracy





This is a two-parter, so today you'll be getting the first half of "It's a Conspiracy," which includes clips from The Hitler Channel's "Secret Societies," with crazy old David Icke. Now, some of you may be familiar with Icke from Alex Jones and the like, so you may not know that Icke thinks there's a race of alien lizard people disguising themselves as powerful leaders. He really thinks this. Hey--some… Continue

Chapter Eight; SPORTS AND RELIGIONSpart thirty-one





This section is not the review of how so many sports heroes choose to solicit God's favor on their athletic endeavors but how who or what sports you choose to support has much to do with the same processes that one will select their religion. There has been many books and articles about that phenomenon. What I am referring to is the phenomenon of how who and what sport…

Ever wonder what will happen to your pets after the Rapture?

Cross-posted from my blog.



My grandmother is a huge fan of the 'Left Behind' books. I find them to be generally distasteful, but interesting in concept. The question of what the rest of us would do if some significant portion of the population was 'gone' (abducted by aliens, turned into zombies, killed by a plague, wiped out in a war,… Continue

How many times has the world ended so far, exactly?

Cross-posted from my blog.



When I first read about this a few weeks ago it made me chuckle. Agape Ministries, an Old Testament cult in Indiana, convinced several of their followers to donate large sums of money to the church based on the idea… Continue

Panama

Just spent a couple of weeks vacationing in Panama and doing the Canal. What a major engineering feat. I read The Path Between the Seas a couple of years ago then again for this trip. The book really helps in understanding the accomplishment. I stayed in a jungle cabin in a very catholic and superstitious community. Ten children and no birth control. They are very proud of their organic farming techniques. It is just a reminder to me of how far the third world has to go before they can even… Continue
