About Me

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

Are there any Atheists trying to kill Believers? No. Believers killing everyone else.

Overheard at the "stand-up Sermons" club:

ISIS has declared a Caliphate.  A distant descendant of a "Sunni" (ironically Jewish) family, obscured by the complex history around the Judaic Kaaba in Mecca, has declared himself the Caliph.  The man urges warriors to join him, with promises of pillage and enslaved women.  They walk into banks and take the gold, they sell oil on the black market, and they have killed more Arabs in one year than the Americans killed in ten.

He must be a real genius, this Caliph.

ISIS is boasting of their reintroduction of slavery and children as sexual booty for their "holy" warriors.  http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/10/isis-confirms-and-justifies-enslaving-yazidis-in-new-magazine-article/381394/.  Here is a photograph of a Yazidi woman from times of peace.

Please help.
