Comments and Asidesrandom thoughts

SINCE

1- We haven’t really had a Random Thoughts OR a Comments & Asides for several months; and,

2- We have a LOT of stuff which has piled up in various places where stuff piles up,

IT was decided to combine Random Thoughts AND Comments and Asides this week!

So, this is Comments & Asides 5 AND Random Thoughts 11–all in ONE piece!

  • First, a few links from our email box.

1- Forget COVID, Global Oligarchs Are Now Rehearsing For A ‘Cyber Pandemic’

2- The U.S. government has set up a website to report bad vaccinations.

(h/t:KJ) -who supplied both of the links.

  • The same folks who supply the Word of the Day (Today it was CIRCUMLOCUTION.) also supply WORDS OF THE WEEK.
  • Found an UNUSED joke.  So, we’ll use it NOW.

“A New York City judge struck down a proposed law to ban sodas larger than 16 ounces. I think Mayor Bloomberg should spend his time trying to improve stuff like education. New York needs a better education system if kids didn’t figure out they could get around the 16-ounce soda ban by simply purchasing two 12-ounce sodas.”
–Craig Ferguson (2013)

  •  2 quotes on MAGIC were also found in our assorted  piles of STUFF.

At one time, there was probably an article which would have used these.  But that time seems to have passed LONG ago. So, here are the two quotes.

“The genre of fantasy is about magic and occult characters.”
Shawn Ashmore

“Once upon a time, forests were repositories of magic for the human race.”
John Burnside

  • A few links which explore the bridge between Science! and the occult.

Ancient Magic IS Real: New Revelations in Occult Science

The occult beginnings of authentic science

Jack Parsons and the occult roots of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory

As well as a few more unused quotes on the matter and a few more links.

Until the 17th century, there was very little distinction between what we now call chemistry and what we would label as alchemy or magic,” [Nayeli Pena ’22, a potential economics major in the class] explains.

Medieval society in particular was an integrated space, where science, religion, magic, and emotion all overlapped and intersected. Witchcraft per se is invented when people in power separate it out as a category of being and layer on misogyny, anti-Semitism, and racism onto it.
Class Stirs the Pot of Witchcraft’s History

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
–Arthur C. Clarke, Clarke’s 3 Laws

This seems to be as good a place as any to remind the reader: There is NO such thing as magic.

There are, however, ways to make what most folks would call “magic” happen.

  • And lastly, some assorted quotes on those Sunday meetin’ places we call CHURCHES.

“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.”
–Billy Sunday

“If Jesus came back and saw what was being done in his name, he’d never stop throwing up.”
― Woody Allen, Hannah and Her Sisters

“Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.”
― Émile Zola

“The story goes that a public sinner was excommunicated and forbidden entry to the church. He took his woes to God. ‘They won’t let me in, Lord, because I am a sinner.’

‘What are you complaining about?’ said God. ‘They won’t let Me in either.”
― Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out

“I know whom we must fight…it is the Church. For all its history, it’s tried to suppress and control every natural impulse.That is what the Church does, and every church is the same: control, destroy, obliterate every good feeling.”
― Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife

“When there’s something in the Bible that churches don’t like, they call it ‘legalism.’”
– Leonard Ravenhill

“If Jesus preached the same message minister’s preach today, He would have never been crucified.”
– Leonard Ravenhill

 

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
