    Removing the Cross from Christendom

Removing the Cross from Christendom

In the days before the time of Jesus, when Israel was under roman rule and occupation, killing people was a common practice. One could be executed or "put to death" for any number of countless reasons. (One might observe the similarities to some modern day Middle Eastern countries in today's world, sadly.) There were used a variety of different methods [...]

Regarding Truth There Is No Absolute

I don't know how it is possible. I just have a feeling that it is. It is the question I get asked the most regarding my theory that there are very few singular absolutes in the universe, regarding our after-death cosmological beliefs. People have a tough time swallowing the idea that there may be multiple realities co-existing simultaneously in the [...]

Different Versions of "The Golden Rule" from Different Religions

(inclusive, partial) TAOIST: Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain, and your neighbor's loss as your own loss. (selective, complete) BUDDHIST: Hurt not others in [...]

I didn’t know that slavery was still around

This is fascinating, and disturbing: I didn't know that slavery was still around. but it is. all over the world in fact. Check out this site for what people are doing to stop it.

Be Happy Always and All Ways

Our manager called today. ***** record’s London office called about releasing the new CD. brought up my age as a downside to the group if you can fucking imagine. For years we were always too “green”  or too young. And now all of a sudden I am too old... I'm only the fucking singer and songwriter, right, so dispensable. There [...]

Crazy day. one or two more days and counting. Miami is going to be a zoo. And so is my house and yard. I went to the convergence center today. Thousands of mostly college age kids, gloriously long scraggly hair and very smelly standing around and talking and making signs and banners. Had a meeting to discuss the how many [...]
