Religoius scams, 3 for 10¢

I wish I could say: "It has been a long time since I have seen a good religion-based scam."

Well it has not been a long time and there have been more scammers than I count on all my fingers and toes combined. The longer you live, the more you see - the PTL Club and Heritage USA, Fall-Well and the girls basketball team, Swaggert and the hooker, and so on (ad nauseam)

P.S. The lawyers say you have NO EQUITY in the property.

Legal announcement Heritage USA - you lost EVERYTHING.

Lifetime partners have no rights!

In other words, F*ck Y*o fools!

PTL Claims Clerk... (for thems thats willing to identify thems selves as bein' screwed).

He's dade! And the line was short!

Above, the faithful on the steps of the church.

Later, they staged a big send-off.

"Finish the towers, which we are committed to..." LOL

It's a stupid world, after all.

Half of the people on this planet have a BELOW AVERAGE I.Q.!

(Hint: what does average mean?)

Need I even remind you of who Palin is???

"The People Don't Elect U.S. Presidents, God Does"
Upon being asked by James Dobson if the McCain ticket's precipitous slide in the polls gets her down:
... [it] strengthens my faith, because I'm going to know, at the end of the day, putting this in God's hands, that the right thing for America will be done at the end of the day on Nov. 4. So I'm not discouraged at all.
... and I can feel it too, Dr. Dobson. I can feel the power of prayer, and that strength that is provided through our prayer warriors across this nation.
Ah yes, the always helpful "prayer warriors," whose appeals to the Almighty actually count for more than the average American citizen's vote. Apparently the next president of the United States will be handpicked by God.

Except Barak Obama was NOT (in the nutty Right thinking) god's choice.

Well. perhaps not one, among the many gods, made a choice!

"It's a young Earth, after all."

Or is it?

In a developing story from Kentucky, the Creation Museum is running out of money due to declining attendance, bringing their “Ark Encounter” project to a stand-still because of a lack of funding.

“At the end of the day young earth creationism requires you to throw out pretty much everything we know about science,” says Josh Rosenau of the National Center for Science Education.

“We would just need one piece of evidence...”
“We would need the fossil that swam from one layer to another,
we would need evidence that the universe is not expanding,
we would need evidence that the stars appear to be far away but they’re not.
We would need evidence that rock layers can somehow form in 4000 years…
We would need evidence you can reset atomic clocks and keep neutrons from becoming protons.”

We would need a significantly higher I.Q. over on the Right.

Photographic PROOF Body Thetans

Seeing is believing!

The above is a body thetan - in the shape of an OT beetle - that Shiro expelled on the sidewalk.

And a manifestation or apparition of L. Ron (circled below) appeared to be supervising the entire operation.

And, an extra bonus point, when turned upside-down, ET is also in on the scene.

This is PROOF POSITIVE that Dine-o-Biscuits is 100% accurate.

L. Ron deserves - is entitled to - a halo for this. I gave him one here.

It just doesn't GET any better than THAT! Body thetans have the same shape as the OT beetle, shown below. There IS a bug in tech!

A well-oiled sewing machine...

I have a friend who teaches music. He was asked to evaluate a young piano student.

So he went to a recital somewhat like a downsized version of this thing:

He didn't recall the title of the composition but he said it "was like listening to a run-away sewing machine that had been recently over-lubricated,"

A kind of thug who was at the recital walked up to my friend and said: "that boy played the piano without a single error."

"No," my friend commented. "His error was that he played the composition far too fast."

The thug said: "I'll pay $100,000 to the teacher that even TRIES to teach my son to play that song on the piano that fast."

"Oh!" said Dennis. "His lessons start next Monday afternoon. here is my card."

VALIS and MATRIX? I dunno...

To Illustrate my point, I will start here.

"In VALIS, Philip K. Dick uses the parameters of the science fiction genre to ponder the meanings behind divine revelations. He does this through the character of Phil/Horselover Fat, a schizophrenic who is tormented by the loss of loved ones and a vision which he believes to be divine in origin. It is the redemption of this character, and how this human character reflects the divine, that becomes the central focus of the novel. The unique idea that Dick is developing is that of the divine being represented by a schizophrenic mind in a contemporary world that is slightly different than our own. Dick is asking the reader to share in his fascination with the divine by introducing a new way of thinking about it through the narrative world he creates in the novel." That's ONE perspective. It may be another 'through the looking glass (mirror) Or NOT...

When it comes to "Science Fiction Studies," Philip K. Dick is a subject unto himself. That's a second perspective.

Between Faith and Melancholy: Irony and the Gnostic Meaning of Dick's "Divine Trilogy" That's a third perspective.

How about between LSD and a bottle of Thunderbird - the world of Philip K. Dick's journey through the Bay Area? That's a forth perspective.

"Wolfgang Hagen argues that media technologies are linked to schizophrenic hallucinations and trance states, as they illustrate “a linguistic structure articulated by the unconscious” (113; my translation). Dick’s late writings similarly represent the experience of the electric media environment as a process of pattern recognition or noise filtering, and they even outline a quasi-mystical theory of the collective unconscious as a product of information technologies. Consciousness becomes, in John Johnston’s words, “a secondary effect, the result of a mechanical interplay between a perceptual apparatus, a recording device, and a symbolic system” (215)" HERE That's a fifth perspective (other than Thunderbird).

So what?

As I have often said: "Perception is perfect in that it consistently FAILS to inform us of reality."

"And Philip K. Dick Wept" is another must read - I just refuse to rip it off. Go read it for yourself.

So, did Philip K. Dick write the Matrix or did the Matrix write Philip K. Dick? I don't see the difference.
