Why is the State Department Funding a Chinese Cult?

I kept seeing these ads for the Epoch Times, starring an obnoxious geek claiming to be the sole source of truth in this dangerous world. He is an annoying actor with a repulsive propaganda message and I wondered who was behind the Epoch Times. Falun Gong is behind the propaganda. Falung Gong is a spiritual … Continue reading

Saint Pat Making the World Better-Little Bit By Bit

We often hear of extremely evil people; so much so that we may begin to think they are in the majority. They are not; most of us are somewhere between saints and conscienceless sinners. But now and then we do run into saints, who deny they are saints, which is one characteristic of their saintliness. … Continue reading

What is it all about?

I’m an artist and thinking is kind of a hobby of mine, so I sometimes think about art. What is it all about? Why do we create illusions on a flat surface (because it’s fun?) and why does anyone else want to hang it on their wall? I haven’t figured that one out yet. I … Continue reading

(US) Kill all … Continue reading

Just saw a news article that says the creation of life is no miracle. Why is that? Because now they have a theory that explains it. Which defines “miracle” as … Continue reading

Symbols In Our Brains

Ndebele Mural We think in symbols. We say “Life is a journey,” Zach’s been on a rough road,” She’s reached the top.” We know we don’t mean those things literally, yet we instantly perceive more from the symbol than we do, say, from a long list of troubles Zach has had on his ‘rough road.’ … Continue reading

L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology: North Korea-nukes+Tom Cruise

It boggles the mind that good, intelligent people were sucked in by Hubbard’s con. It boggles the mind, but it shouldn’t. If you found a self-help therapy that could also help others, stop wars, stomp out mental illness and psychosomatic diseases, wouldn’t you go for it? Maybe, you reply, but when it got absurdly expensive, … Continue reading
