Facing Reality--Brutality of Compassion?

As our righteous leader, GWB, fantasized early in his first term to bring democracy and freedom to the Middle East by ousting the "brutal dictator" Saddam, he also spouted anthems of Iraqi's in the streets of Bagdad waving American flags and throwing flowers at the soldiers feet. The victory would be quick and democracy would be flourishing in short order. His path to success was Shock and Awe, hundreds of bombs dropped on civilization indiscriminately obliterating the civilians with the... Sign in to see full entry.

Satan and the Devil is your Conscience

Here is my comment to Westwind for his recent post: Some interesting posts, West, are you "loosing your religion?" I hope so--we don't need it, really. Perhaps the "devil" is a part of our conscience, that which helps us think and feel what it is we desire--all the more would priest try and villify such a presence in the heart and mind of mankind. To be sheep and follow the will of the priest and keep the business prosperous, making our nature a fault and perpetual failure to be "like God" would... Sign in to see full entry.

Kooka: Freedom of Religion is NOT what Christians practice

My comment to Kooka for his recent post: Why is it your concern Rreedom of Religion is NOT what Christians practice, yet they hold to their own right to do and say whatever they want, to whoever will hold still long enough. Having been a Christian, I understand the gnawing influence that religious experience plays on its members. The Bible is full of abusive language for those who "let" the standards of God slip and alow tolerance to flourish. From the destruction of Sodom and Gemhorra, to the... Sign in to see full entry.

May the FORCE be known

Our experimentation in Democracy, or rather, a representative Republic, is ever evolving--much as societies of history attest to for thousands of years. There is a pattern to human behavior, like there is to nature, the solar system, the functioning of any thing within the universe. Atheist call it evolution when discussing the physical realm. But there is some ambivilance when discussing society and its construction-destruction-reconstruction habits. I call it FORCE. People are, by nature, able... Sign in to see full entry.

George W. Bush BELIEVES we'll all be dead---if you vote for him--

For Bush fans, look beyond the deception that has been laid on you over the last four years and see just where the Bush Plan for the World is going to take us--faith aside, or maybe because of it, I hope not, humanity is on the brink of distruction-- we need to step back and consider the long range consequence of what military action in the world means. Knowing that North Korea was a danger he taunted them and then ignored them. Knowing that Islam fundalmentalism was the greatest threat to... Sign in to see full entry.

A Prosperous or Limited Future

In these last days before the election, I’ve listened to all of the debates, all the commercials heaped upon the media to captured audiences, the pundents and jabber over who would be the best man for the job of “Commander in Chief” and which policies would improve the welfare of Americans and the security of the world. I was about to shut the whole thing down, having long ago decided that Kerry was the choice I would be making. Then I caught a C-span program which hosted Noam Chomsky, author of...

A response to Kooka

Kooka, what are you thinking? "If there truly is A god then would it not make sense for it to come down and fine a new prophet to write corrected Bible that would be more literal and therefore clearer to us. Yet the Biblical God does not seem to understand such logic. Very strange indeed." You just made the validation for the Mormons. I used to be associated with this branch of the Christian Cult, so I could see it right away. Surely you've heard the story of Joseph Smith and his revelation of... Sign in to see full entry.
