Sometimes I Forget

June 28, 2007

That my life style is an abomination and that God hates me and wants me to die.

But when I forget, I know where to go to be reminded.

You, too, can contribute to Conservapedia. Praise Jesus!


Apology

June 26, 2007

To my knowledge, nothing I write has ever appeared in print. And I have never received recompense for any of my musings. In that regard, I am like most who blog and publish online.

I also don’t track visitor stats on my sites or my blogs. Because I can be vain and narcissistic at times, I don’t need further prods to folly. I am wary of renown because I feel it may become a substitute for what really matters: the friendship and love of those close to me.

If, at times, I seem distant, it’s because I wish to maintain my sanity. Being from New York, I find it hard to talk to people I don’t know. It’s just not something I did growing up in the Big Apple. I imagine I’ll get over it. It just may take some time.


Synchronicity

June 25, 2007

With the caveat that it is a work in progress, I have posted the Synchronicity series at Gaia Wakens. Considering the subject matter, it seems more suited to that site than to loverofwords.com.

I once heard that the whole of the blogosphere is a first draft. It’s taken me sometime to appreciate the truth of that observation.

The Internet is (related to / distinct from) the Noosphere.


In the Garden

June 22, 2007

In time for Seattle Gay Pride, I have posted In the Garden on my homepage.

I’m ambivalent about Gay Pride: at times it seems more a celebration of narcicissm than a celebration of social progress. It’s not like homos need an excuse to consume alcohol.

Oh, and it seems enough people think that Synchronicity is more than an illusion in my deluded mind. But what happens next? I have no idea.


Loving Kindness

June 18, 2007

Compassion is the goal toward which spirituality points.

I am reviewing Buddhism, a non-theistic religion, in the hope of quieting my aggression, negativity, and antagonism: here is Buddha’s sutra on the cultivation of loving kindness.

Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;

I yet have much to learn.


Allah Loves Water Sports

June 12, 2007

After all, drinking the urine of Muhammad is now considered a blessing in Islam.

Religious tolerance be damned: that fatwa is just plain stupid. Especially since the Prophet hasn’t been around to take a leak for over a thousand years.

I wonder if the Supreme Intelligence of the Universe finds the foolishness of his sycophantic mouthpieces amusing.

I certainly do.


Creationism is equivalent to Geocentrism

June 11, 2007

Funny poll: more Republicans than Democrats doubt evolution.

I would love to see a poll of how many people believe in the Geocentric model of the universe. I wouldn’t be surprised to find a correlation between those who believe the Sun revolves around the Earth and those who believe Creationism.

Not only is the Creation Museum an affront to rationality, it is an abuse of the First Amendment.

Free speech should not mean lying is legal. After all, Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany.
