Afghanistan – What You Aren’t Hearing – Part One

If you are like me, you’ve been mesmerized by the utter catastrophe unfolding in Kabul. The Taliban have taken over and demonstrated just how weak and untrustworthy America is. Forty-five years of effort in rebuilding confidence in the US, was lost in just hours. It’s a tragedy of shocking proportions, but it’s not the whole story.

As I have tried to reveal the truth behind this tragedy, I have discovered a tangled web of deceit, corruption and utter incompetence. And, I can only give you a piece of it.

Apophenia

We often to see and hear things that don’t exist. Not always, and we usually catch such mistakes before they hurt us. But, WAY too often.

This ‘ability’ comes from the way God created us. And, we need this capacity to see patterns in the midst of chaos. Learning to speak, avoiding traffic accidents and reading body language are all a part of this God-given skill.

Unfortunately, when we want a certain thing to be true badly enough, we’ll distort our ability to see patterns into something closer to mental illness. It’s what our society is doing, and we call it apophenia.

When The Lockdown Really Began

Governments have been locking us down and controlling our movements for a lot longer than you realize. In fact, it has been going on for so long, that you don’t notice anymore. And, I was brought home to this fact, as I was looking at my own passport.

Why don’t more people realize that the passport is a form of authoritarian control?

Why do I need permission to exist?

Another 70 AD and Another Translation Issue – A Big One

I find it ironic that we stand on the doorstep of a moment in time that is awfully similar to the AD 70 destruction of Jerusalem. Only this time, WE are the ones who will suffer.

Then, I ran into yet another translation issue – this time about the original Greek manuscripts that were the source material for our English translations. I have avoided this issue for too long, so we need to talk about that. And, the translation issue came up because I realized a need to discuss something vital.

Killing Us, Like They Killed Rome

Popular history likes to blame the Germans for the fall of Rome, but reality tells a different tale. It was suicide, plain and simple – the same kind of self-inflicted destruction that the US and Europe are going through, right now.

We are killing ourselves, just like Rome did. The only difference is that our fall will kill a lot more, and the barbarians howling at our gates are mostly Chinese.

Greed and stupidity was what really killed the Romans. Greedy elites and stupid peasants. It’s a story that was old before Romulus was even a glint in his father’s eye.
