Life of Agony - Weeds

Life of Agony - Weeds
Today I cut off all the ties
Been led blind for all this time
But somewhere in between the lies
Are the hearts and minds of those who tried

And although I've heard your lies
And I don't know why
I keep searching for something that I never found
While these weeds get deeper as I turn around
And time grows older and I've grown colder
So long has passed that I forgot to count

These weeds have grown where the sun once shone
And I can feel it

This space between us...

Accept Jesus & forget Tolle or Chuck Norris will kick your ass

Oprah's new Easter by Chuck Norris

This post is directly related to the previous one. Here's the funniest bit of the Chuck article:

"As C.S.. Lewis -- the great Oxford scholar and writer of "The Chronicles of Narnia," who was once an avid atheist -- wrote:
"A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a good moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse.

"You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great moral teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to."
That might not be what Oprah, Tolle or others around the world want to hear on their webinar, but he is everything we all need to obtain peace with God and peace with one another."

Yes obviously, that's what 2000 years of history have clearly shown!

Geez, here's another article by this wise man: Would Jesus support War
The answer according to Chuck is yes, duh!

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." G-sus
A sword is also a freaking metaphor for "intellect" & "reason". Ironically...

Hilarious site: Chuck Norris is the second coming of Jesus Christ, deal with it.

If you don't think this is funny, let me just pull this Walker Texas Ranger lever...

update: Holy shit Chuck Norris woke up exo-politically!

Ordinaries with bad taste

Today I was eating at my folks and singer Mika came on the radio, now if you don't know this product keep it that way lol. My mom said "I heard he's a real asshole when he performs, an arrogant prick who's intolerable to deal with."

So finally I was able to mention some PKD to her haha, as I just started reading "Flow my tears the policeman said." Which has excellent commentaries on society as always from PKD.
Excerpt alert!
Jason Taverner has never and will never disappoint his fans. However Heather may feel about hers.
"You don't like them," Jason said as they squirmed and pushed and ducked their way down the steaming, sweat-smellin corridor, "because you don't like yourself. You secretly think they have bad taste."
"They're dumb," Heather grunted, and cursed quietly as her flat, large hat flopped from her head and disappeared forever within the whale's belly of close-pressing fans.
"They're ordinaries," Jason said...
Heather grated, "Don't say thatword."
"They're ordinaries," Jason said, "and they're morons. Because" - he nipped at the lobe of her ear - that's what it means to be an ordinary. Right?" ...
"You really do hate them, " he said.
"Yes." She nodded briskly. "And so do you."

Daily Dedroidify: Atlantis

Daily Dedroidify: Atlantis

The earliest (recognized...) references to the island of Atlantis are in Plato's works "Timaeus" and "Critias". In his story, Critias describes the origins and form of Atlantis to Socrates and his guests.
The story abruptly ends with Zeus, the god of gods, seeing the corruption of the Atlanteans, determined to chastise them. Zeus begins to speak; but what he says, and everything that follows in the Critias, has been lost.

The dialog of Timaeus is a continuation of Critias's tale, and delivers a more thorough history of ancient civilizations and mentions the state of Atlantis and its foreign relations, albeit briefly.

Although 'mainstream science' considers Atlantis to be a myth, Plato repeatedly
lets his characters state their reports are true, for example:
"Listen then, Socrates, to a tale which, strange though it be, is yet perfectly true,
as Solon, the wisest of the seven once said..." Critias

Plato's Timaeus & Critias

Over 11,000 years ago there existed an island nation located in the middle of the Atlantic ocean populated by a noble and powerful race. The people of this land possessed great wealth thanks to the natural resources found throughout their island. The island was a center for trade and commerce. The rulers of this land held sway over the people and land of their own island and well into Europe and Africa.

Atlantis was the domain of Poseidon, god of the sea. When Poseidon fell in love with a mortal woman, Cleito, he created a dwelling at the top of a hill near the middle of the island and surrounded the dwelling with rings of water and land to protect her.

Cleito gave birth to five sets of twin boys who became the first rulers of Atlantis. The island was divided among the brothers with the eldest, Atlas, first King of Atlantis, being given control over the central hill and surrounding areas.

At the top of the central hill, a temple was built to honor Poseidon which housed a giant gold statue of Poseidon riding a chariot pulled by winged horses. It was here that the rulers of Atlantis would come to discuss laws, pass judgments, and pay tribute to Poseidon.

To facilitate travel and trade, a water canal was cut through of the rings of land and water running south to the sea.

The city of Atlantis sat just outside the outer ring of water and spread across the plain. This was a densely populated area where the majority of the population lived.

Beyond the city lay a fertile plain surrounded by another canal used to collect water from the rivers and streams of the mountains. The climate was such that two harvests were possible each year. One in the winter fed by the rains and one in the summer fed by irrigation from the canal.

Surrounding the plain to the north were mountains which soared to the skies. Villages, lakes, rivers, and meadows dotted the mountains.

Besides the harvests, the island provided all kinds of herbs, fruits, and nuts. An abundance of animals, including elephants, roamed the island.

For generations the Atlanteans lived simple, virtuous lives. But slowly they began to change. Greed and power began to corrupt them. When Zeus saw the immorality of the Atlanteans he gathered the other gods to determine a suitable punishment.

In a single day and night of misfortune it was gone. The island of Atlantis,
its people, and its memory were swallowed by the sea.

Worldwide there are an estimated 500 mythological stories referring to a paradise island that sunk into the sea due to disaster.
What a coincidence... :p

Bonus points for people who noticed that the first image has concentric circle stargate symbolism, and the second image is from Stargate Atlantis. Gotta love it.

Oh and gotta say this at one point or another, if you see posts with lousy formatting, please scroll on first and refresh in a few minutes, I can't help it if the Blogger preview or compose function are totally useless for my style of posting :p I also edit posts later on, a lot!

Secret Images of Google Earth

This vid is rather old, but as I hadn't seen it yet,
I'm sure some of you haven't either ;)

Just some thoughts:
1. Sungod? makes me think of a Louis XIV mask
2. Native American face, Pacal?
3. Nazca-line alien or therianthropic figure?
4. Merkabah (aka Star of David).
5. Triangle with Concentric Circle Stargate.
