Blind belief has nothing to offer clear-sighted government

From a blog that I follow, now and again he comes out with an essay well worthy of being seen by a wider audience. This I believe is one of those, I have Reblogged it in full, it has some hard hitting, but I believe fair comments.

===================================

THE SATURDAY ESSAY: blind belief has nothing to offer clear-sighted government

George and the ‘ISIS Bride’ Shamima Begum

There as been many comments in the media; ref Shamima Begum the young girl who went to Syria in support of ISIS/DAESH. Whether or not she should b] Allowed to come back. Or b] leave her where she is and revoke her British citizenship.

I was going to make a comment but I came across an article on Off Guardian that gives a good summing up of the problem. This and the subsequent comments are worthy of a read.

My three things for Christmas

Instead of my usual, it’s Christmas and no one really cares, or we worry that we might offend people by celebrating Christmas. My dig at the PC Brigade, here are three things that may or may not be worth thinking about?

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day (Civil War background)

A poem by Longfellow set to music and pictures. It is about the American Civil War of 1861-65. But it could be about many wars, civil or not since, when many millions have died and suffered.

The final assault is about to take place against ISIL and others in the Syrian city of Idlib

The final assault is about to take place against ISIL and others in the Syrian city of Idlib. Before it does, the western media is already talking of a Human rights tragedy and innocent lives being lost.

Two things spring to mind, 1] Lack of media coverage on the Genocide in Yemen by the Saudi led coalition. 2] Can we trust the media? Here is the full transcript of an article, whilst a decent reading does shed some light on the media and their masters.

Is it not time Britain decided to accept it cannot afford to play in the big league anymore?

In search of genuine intelligence

There was an article proposing thought provoking articles which may or may not create interest. here is an article [in full] of one of my favourite Bloggers

=============================================================

We live on a planet where spoken language sets us apart from other species, and the possibilities for perversion of that skill are infinite. That is a dangerous world in which it is the duty of all responsibly intelligent humans to highlight and condemn the counterfeit currency of propaganda in all its forms. Before it leaps headlong into the anarchic creation of Artificial Intelligence, Homo sapiens needs a far more discerning definition of what useful intelligence is….and how to encourage it.

Who are your Friends? Who are your Enemies?

Who are your Friends? Who are your Enemies?

Tough question, but do I know the answer? No, but I believe that I can give a few pointers, leaving the rest up to you.

We [or the world] as been going through some trying times. What with the Arab spring, starting with the Tunisia, then Egypt with the election of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its rise and fall?

If it is not my fault, then whose is it?

If it is not my fault, then whose is it?

You have all heard of the story of Adam and Eve, but here is a new angle.

God had created the Garden of Eden and then created Adam and Eve. He told him, you can eat of the garden any plant or animal, it is there for your needs. But;

There is always a but; Do not eat from a certain tree, the tree of life, which is also the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the middle of the Garden, the rest of the garden is for your pleasure and needs.

Part fifteen, Jesus’s teaching continues. The Parable of the Rich Landowner

Most of the three Abrahamic religions talk about the coming of the Messiah, or his return,

But in one of Jesus’s stories he brings another point of view. On our death, we meet our maker and have to answer personally for our faults.

Two things spring to mind a] are we ready for this coming, date, time and place unknown. And b] in certainty we shall all die [when who knows] are you ready for this fact?

The Parable of the Rich Landowner Luke chapter 12 verses 13 to 21

Part fourteen, Jesus’s teaching continues. The Parable of the Bags of Gold, sometimes called the Parable of the Talents.

Was Jesus a supporter of capitalism?  These parables have been used many times to prove that he was, but were they right. Judge for your self.

Matthew chapter 25 verses 14 to 29

The Parable of the Bags of Gold, or Talents [a]
