Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

There are days for sunny morning walks in the garden, where dew-bejeweled roses release their fragrance on the light breeze.
These are not those days. These are days of harsh realities demanding sharp answers. This is now … time for thorns.

Terror is religiously motivated…

leave a comment »

So said some of the participants at a three-day Muslim World League debate entitled  “Islam and Counter-terrorism.”   Of course, that directly counters the Obama Administration’s contention that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.  The attendees were members of Islamic NGOs, who one would tend to suspect know what they are talking about.

His Oneness no doubt feels as if the world of reality is conspiring against him,  insisting upon inserting all these inconvenient truths into his narrative of falsehoods.

These high school  basketball players  understand sportsmanship.   Kudos to their parents and coach for raising a fine bunch of students in Texas.

Scientists are wrong…

leave a comment »

And as author Marcus Woo posits,  that’s  often more  enlightening than when they are right.   But faux science can be extremely damaging.   Consider the  “science”  of global warming,  which has repeatedly been proven wrong,  rigged,  and corrupt.   Yet progressives,  desperate to control the masses,  cling to it in an attempt to make their peculiar religion a reason to control us.   Until an experiment has been successfully and fairly replicated,  the theory  being tested is just a theory.  The trouble arises when the corrupt and unethical present theory as proven fact.

American blogger hacked to death…

leave a comment »

Avijit Roy,  a Bangladesh-born U.S. citizen and a  prominent blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death as he walked through Bangladesh’s capital with his wife,  Rafida Ahmed, who was seriously injured.   They were walking on a crowded sidewalk, returning from a book fair at Dhaka University.

A previously unknown militant group,  Ansar Bangla 7,  has claimed responsibility for the attack.   This is  the latest  in a series of attacks on secular writers in Bangladesh in recent years.   Even Hindus are not safe from militant Islam.

UPDATE:  “Religious extremism is a virus.”   That’s the  sort of truth Avijit Roy used.

Leonard Nimoy, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

I was aware of Leonard Nimoy  before he  became Dr. Spock,  simply because I had seen him in other series.   He was a talented actor,  and one with other  creative outlets  which seem to have maintained his interest in life.

Art  and music  were important to him,  and he managed to do as his sign-off always advised  —  live  long and  prosper.

UPDATE:  The interesting  history behind  the Vulcan sign.

UPDATE:  Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin  pays tribute.    This is how  Nimoy came to be in Star Trek.   Current astronaut Terry Virts makes the Vulcan sign from space.

Stolen house…

leave a comment »

Not a mobile home on wheels,  mind you,  but a 1,200 square  foot house last seen sitting on its foundation in a rural area of Klamath County,  Oregon.   Did a thief just come along and disassemble the building?  Color me perplexed.
