Should Cities be Banned?

I have long suspected that large population densities are bad for humans. How bad? Look at the resulting population of every major city in the world, and you come to the conclusion, Very Bad.

What is bad? Bad is families breaking down. People turning their back on social norms that promote harmony and peace of society. Crime, sloth, and acceptance of the perversion of social norms eventually becoming common place.

I ran into this study showing what happens to rodents in a simulated urban center.

city_simulation_with_mice

The summary is that males lose their purpose and eventually become asexual. Females lose mothering instincts and eventually become infertile. The population literally dies out completely, not because of disease or violence, but because it turns its back on all its social norms that originally led to reproduction of the species.

This leads to an insight and a question.

First, if you want to have descendants for as long as there are people on this earth, teach your children to live in the countryside away from urban centers.

Second, the question. Should dense urban centers be banned for the good of culture, society, and the existence of our species? Should there be a legal limit to population density? Honestly, I don’t know, but I think this study says,  “Yes.”

Christmas Carol Filter

I love Christmas music. Every song ranging from Gabriel’s Message to Winter Wonderland, make my December happier. I look forward to the music all year round.

Here’s a quick idea to make the Christmas season even more bright.

Make a special playlist for Christmas music that references the true meaning of Christmas–Jesus Christ. There’s a difference between “holiday music” and Christmas music. Singing about snow, Santa, and food is fun and festive, but that holiday music misses the point. Try listening to a playlist about Christ, doing good deeds, giving, angels’ celebrating, the world finding peace, and nativity scenes.

Having a special playlist of Christmas music devoid of “holiday music” will bring a special feeling into your Christmas season.

Destroy the Foundation, Watch Everything Crumble

Watch many modern thrillers, and you’ll see hints of white supremacists being the terrorists. Take a closer look, and you will see hints that the evil white people have been reading writings of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, or other founders of the United States.

Watch for it. You’ll see it.

When you build a house, a skyscraper, a bridge or a dam, you start out with a foundation. Everyone takes pictures of the great architectural marvels of the world and looks at awe at their stunning beauty and utility. However, only a few notice their foundations that take all the stress of the structures and holds them in place.

All our modern marvels, … medicine, space travel, democracy, the internet and architecture are built on the foundation of the teachings of a few hundred brilliant men. Most of those men are called racists and evil by today’s educators and influencers. So, their fundamental ideas are no longer learned by the upcoming generation.

Without a foundation, all structures perish. Remove the foundation, and the destruction is instantaneous.

The foundations of our global civilization are being removed. When the foundations crumble to the point that they can’t hold up our civilization anymore, it will collapse.

What can we do? Study the lost knowledge of the last 2000 years. Teach it to your friends and family. Preserve the written and printed knowledge of what they taught and pass it on.

Sad Ending for Liberals

Let’s start off with a study out of London–one of the hearts of Liberalism in the English speaking world.

Lonely Lives: Alarming Number Of Seniors Go Entire Week Without Talking To Anyone

I’m sure the link will disappear eventually, as digital means temporary. So, let me summarize the study using a quote from the article.

“These latest figures show that hundreds of thousands of older people in the UK will spend today and the rest of this week alone, with no one to share even a few simple words with.”

-Caroline Abrahams

Two things not mentioned in the article are church and children. How many of these seniors that never speak to anyone in a week fell for the Liberal agendas of aborting their babies and staying away from church? Now they are alone and miserable. God and their children did not desert them. They turned their backs on God and having children.

I’ve seen this situation play out in the lives of acquaintances at work. They’re closing in on senior citizen age, living with aging parents who will not out live them. They’re divorced, if they ever got married in the first place. And, have no children, because that is what the religion of Liberalism told them would bring happiness.

The worst part is that they still stand by this lifestyle of misery.

Lest anyone say, “Good. They brought it on themselves.” Remember the words of King Benjamin.

“Perhaps thou shalt say: The man has brought upon himself his misery; therefore I will stay my hand, and will not give unto him …

But I say unto you, O man, whosoever doeth this the same hath great cause to repent; and except he repenteth of that which he hath done he perisheth forever, and hath no interest in the kingdom of God. For behold, are we not all beggars? Do we not all depend upon the same Being, even God?”

Mosiah 4

He was speaking specifically of giving food and money where needed, but it applies equally to giving emotional support.

This study proves there are many older people around us that need social support and friendship. Look around for older people that have found themselves in this state of loneliness. Relieve their suffering. Be friendly, and give them a reason to smile and talk to someone on a regular basis. Be their friend.

 

Exodus of Israel from Egypt

I’ve been researching the Exodus of Israel from Egypt, and also trying to establish the route of the exodus. Also, I’ve been looking for the time Joseph the son of Jacob came to prominence in Egypt. I feel satisfied that I have narrowed the time periods of both to acceptable ranges.

I believe that Joseph’s Pharaoh was actually two pharaohs. The first pharaoh was Senusret II, during the 12th dynasty of the Middle Kingdom of Egypt. During this time, co-regency was accepted and practiced commonly. Seeing how Joseph was made co-regent after giving pharaoh the interpretation of his dream, this fits the Bible account. Also, the time of Senusret II is within the time period described by the Bible as 480 years before Solomon’s temple (1 King 6:1) plus 430 years before Exodus (Exodus 12:40-41) plus the life of Joseph before coming to power in Egypt. That’s over 910 years before Solomon’s temple.

I Believe in Christ

I don’t believe in magic, and I rarely believe in the improbable.

Growing up, I used to hear the question, “If there was an explosion at a printing company, is it possible for that explosion to result in a perfectly printed and bound copy of the Bible being created?”

The answer of course is “no”. No sane person would claim a fully printed and bound copy of the Bible could be created from a random explosion. The speaker then would continue on to point out that a person needs to create a Bible for it to exist. In the same way, a human being could not have been created by chance of evolution. Humans must have a creator if something much less complex, like a Bible, needs a creator.

I would take this analogy a step further.

Know the Heart by Their Fruit

Look for the results of a person’s labors to know their heart. Do they spread hate and harm, or peace and love? The results of their actions, not their words will show you what is in their heart.

Matthew 7:16-20

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Oceans Rising

For the past couple of years, we’ve been inundated with stories about how we are all going to die from global climate change and the rising oceans if we don’t implement lots of government rules, regulations, laws,  and of course, trillions of dollars in new taxes.

Liberals claim that the ocean has risen 1/10 of an inch, or about the thickness of one fingernail. Then they point to the fact that many sandbars have sank into the ocean–you can’t make this stuff up–so we are all going to die.

I speak about smell tests a lot, and this one doesn’t even come close to passing the smell test.

Scientists claim the ocean levels were hundreds of feet lower than now about 15,000 years ago during the last ice age, but we aren’t dead from climate change. The ocean tides are anywhere from 3-feet to 32-feet per day depending where you live, but we haven’t died from them. Rocky coasts haven’t sank into the ocean, only sandbars, while at the same time other sandbars are being created all over the world.

Liberals love claiming everyone that disagrees with them are close-minded, unintelligent, and uneducated.

*sigh*

MSM Smell Test

Some “facts” don’t pass the smell test. Meaning, if it smells like manure, then it probably is manure.

Many sources are claiming that Trump, … a man I’ve never liked, … hates immigrants. After all, Democrats love everyone, and Republicans hate everyone. That makes it easy to decide he hates immigrants.

But then there is that pesky smell test.

Trump’s immediate family is full of people born outside the USA. Trump married two immigrants, and his mother was an immigrant. That would make him AND his children first generation Americans. According to the news and the ill-informed, Trump must hate his wife, children and his mother. Oh, … and himself. I don’t think anyone could believe Trump hates himself.

The Trump-hates-immigrants line doesn’t pass the smell test. Some people, commenters, and news organizations seem to have been wading waste-deep in manure to produce that line.

I–like many people–surround myself with friends I agree with. That gives us more to talk about. And, it prevents arguments. However, when I know they are spouting “facts” that don’t pass the smell test, then I don’t use them as a source of information that I make my decisions based off of.

Gun Violence Avoidance

I ran into this article about preventing yourself from becoming a victim of gun violence. It definitely isn’t PC, but it is statistically accurate.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-07/how-reduce-your-risk-death-gun-violence

So here are the tips without the commentary. By my estimate, you can reduce your chances of being killed by a gun by 400% by just implementing two of these tips. Pretty scary.

  1. Don’t commit suicide
  2. Deescalate road rage incidents
  3. Don’t join a gang
  4. Don’t buy or sell drugs
  5. Avoid abusive people
  6. Live by a curfew
  7. Avoid gun-free zones
  8. Avoid convicted violent criminals
  9. Practice situational awareness
  10. Avoid people who don’t practice gun safety
  11. Don’t attack or rob people
