Fun With the Book of Revelation

< Writers of the new testament 4+1 gospels (includes Acts) cribbed liberally from the OT, especially Isaiah. >>>

And where does The Book of Revelation fit in?  After all, it’s St. John the Divine’s bad LSD trip.  There has to be something sacred about that.

Aside:  How the heck do you get a name like St. John the Divine?  Do you think he called himself John the Divine?  He was a prisoner/slave working in the quarries on a remote Roman possession…

Violent Video Games Reduce Violent Crime

With the recent shooting at a school in Newtown Connecticut and the shooting in Aurora Colorado violent video games are in the news again. The old men in the old media are blaming violent video games as they always do when a shooting hits the national news.

Violent video games have been the target of old media and conservatives for years. They will spout dubious studies and claim there is a link. They will blame any act of violence on violent video games even if the perpetrator never…

"During a nighttime service, as Christian rock played, boys overcome by emotion fell to their knees and cried. Drill instructors hugged them, held them and whispered prayers into their ears."

Me thinks, traditions have faltered and the neo-modern? youths get the brunt of the bs mantras...…

1000 pageviews for my blog

Ok, ok, I know that this number (1015 page views at the moment) might not seem very high for a blog that has reached an age of 2,5 months.

Goodby to all that. Hello Goodwill.

Last week I drove by an estate sale sign, and had to stop and check for bargains. My god, that lady collected a lot of stuff. I asked the people at the sale, was this one estate or multiple. They assured me it all belonged to one widow who may have lived in that house for 45 years. Stuff was packed into banana boxes, piled up and packed solid into rooms in the basement, then the garage, then the spare bedroom.

I bought a couple of glass pie plates. The one thing I can…

Some People Just Don't Get Satire It Seems

I keep getting comments, pm's, and emails regarding a satire piece I wrote for Christmas. There's even a 'Stumbler' who thought the article was serious and reviewed it as if it were here.



I've gotten messages from Christians telling me that mistletoe isn't a Christian religious symbol and messages from pagans insisting the same. I've even gotten a… Continue
