In the news we see natural and un-natural happenings. Those who fear losing power attribute the happenings to “the devil” or the number of same sex marriages in California.
Let me explain stuff.
First of all, the mega fires happening in California are the direct result of fossil fuel burning and global warming.
It has nothing to do with any imaginary supernatural personages, but with all of our cumulative behavior since the Industrial Revolution.
If you heat up the air and oceans, you change the weather patterns of the whole planet, and it runs out of control.
We cannot “manage” the weather in California, so our forests dry out, and since a lot of those forests are on government land who is responsible for any so called “management?”
The only recourse to minimizing the loss of life and property is to refrain from building private houses in forests, and concentrate them in larger towns with adequate buffer zones around the settlements.
Something like the “stacks” in Ready, Player One would be suitable.
I can see some pretty comfy and even luxurious habitations using round towers with every homeowner having a view.
Of course, the view may include ashes and charred trees, but you can’t have everything.
Sometimes you end up with nothing.
The fact that we have so many fires is due to power lines shorting out, arson, accidental fires from faulty exhaust systems, and careless cigarette smokers. It has nothing to do with anybody “sinning”.
We now have had several sightings of “UFO’s”.
The government says they are going to investigate. It should turn out to be a natural phenomena, and not because there are alien intelligences spying on us, or beings that look like our mythical “devils” as expressed in Arthur C. Clark’s Childhood’s End. We have so many mythical creatures that appear in stories, song and now media, that no one can sit back and say,”Well, of course there has to be a rational explanation”.
Now, since there is a rise of secular practices in this country, the pastors of radical conservative churches have to go looking for something with which to criticize the female members of their congregations.
First it was “No dancing, card playing ,ankle showing or sex with the lights on.”
Now it is no bare shoulders, only one ear piercing, and no Yoga classes.
I have from a reputable source that yoga exercises are healthful and energizing.
Emptying the mind leads to relaxing, and healthful endocrine balance.
The pastors and cult leaders have seen that their flocks are diminishing, so pull these rules of behavior out of their nether regions.
Some poor gullible women have stopped going to yoga classes just on the say so of their religious leader, but they will be all the more poorer in spirit and unhealthy in body as a result.
