Before I get into expressing my point I feel first I have to defend my religious/spiritual beliefs about "God". Alas, welcome to America today. USA, USA, USA wave flag, we are free to express what we believe, we are free from religious/spiritual persecution? I feel I have to go off all DEFENSIVE about this first.
It seems to me it is getting popular to ridicule "God" or anyone that has belief in "God". You know? "They believe in an invisible man that lives in the sky whom needs lots of money?" "God loves us and is forgiving but he will make us burn in hell forever if we do not do as he says?" Sounds pretty foolish... doesn't it? That's because IT IS!!!
The application of "Logic" can help us to deduce and know things that may not otherwise be readily apparent. Here is THE classic "Logic" example:
- A = B
- B = C
Therefore, believe it or not, we can logically deduce that:
Understand in order for "Logic" to work correctly for you, that is a valid useful logical deduction is achieved, it requires that you:
Here is a simple example to illustrate how logic can be defeated. This example may not be true in ALL cases but could be true in many cases.
- Your spouse is cheating on you
- A cheating spouse does not care for you
Therefore we can deduce:
- Your spouse does not care for you
Can you understand how the conclusion here could be completely rejected regardless of it's validity? Can you understand also how someone may have a tendency to alter, or even completely reject, the values that are inserted into this formula?
Customer: Yeah. I'd like a double major cardiovascular medical issues with cheese. A large side of unknown Dow Chemical medical Russian Roulette compounds and a 6 piece general dietary deficiency.
Order Clerk: Would you like something to drink with that?

Valentine's Day, February 14, 2014, is almost here. Here is something I wrote several years ago. I'm sharing it here and now as another pebble thrown into the pond of life. I hope the ripples that span out across the water from this pebble get to echo off receiving shores.
Looking around where ever I go
Do not understand why it is so
So many people in this sea of life
Have no husband or no wife
Even some that have been wed
Still feel alone in their bed
We are all human, very much the same
A heart, needs, desires, and a name
Someone special in their lives most do yearn
Its instinct, natural, something common we learn
Why all the confusion and trouble
To find and have for us a double
We all seem to know what it is and should be
This is what we show if this we want to see
It is very basic and primitive inside us
Why all the complication and all the fuss
What has happened to us as a collective
So many unable to achieve this imperative
It really is a simple and basic thing
If this we want, this we must bring
I will give it to you and you to me
Alone no longer will we be
Yet sadly in life it is not that simple
Thoughts, emotions, experience define people
To many what we see and hear
Is influenced by want and fear
What we can receive and can give
Depends upon the life that we live
Individual and unique we are this way
Finding exact match is hard try we may
Are some just lucky and happen to find this
Or did they search the right place finding bliss
Do we search outside ourselves in this quest
Or is it inside us were we will find the best?
I was in my local grocery store picking up a few items when God dropped this one on me. Just appeared out of no where, popped right into my conscience. I say God as I'd like to believe it is his doing rather than just crazy going on in my head. Call it "The Force" if you like.
This song came out in 1972. It tells a sad story of an innocent man being hung by a dysfunctional justice system. That, in and of itself, is my main argument against capital punishment. The justice system is flawed, we are flawed. No one should have the authority to administratively order the execution of another. Why should we be cold blooded killers about this? Just put them in a cage for life. Why not? We do that all the time with people there wasn't even a victim. Plus they have a chance to vindicate themselves if they can.
How does Jacques Pépin keep garlic from sticking to his knife as he is mincing it???
Let's not even talk about giving a corrupt, criminal and clearly they just love being homicidal government the "Authority" to easily execute whomever they desire simply by using their corrupt and criminal court systems.
