A few years ago, I traveled to the island of Kauai to visit my brother and soak in a little tropical sunshine. The day after I arrived, I was invited to join him and some of his friends on a small fishing boat for a day of trolling for Ahi Tuna. We launched just prior to dawn, and the sea had three to four-foot swells; not too bad, and the little 20 ft. boat handled them well. Soon, we were about five miles from the coast of Niihau, and I could see the Ahi boiling the water as they fed on the surface nearby. The fishing was fast and furious, and most of the Ahi we caught weighed about fifteen... Read More
Life is amazing and I find it interesting, insane, and sad (all at the same time) that there seem to be so many people, willing or not, living in the role of “sheep.” Don’t get me wrong, I don’t know everything and don’t claim to know any more than the next person, but I believe myself to have a small amount of practical sense that I use to reach good reason.
I suppose the opening paragraph is the answer to the question of this post…for me. Who do you trust? I trust myself. I trust I can figure some things out and that in doing so, my decisions will reflect intelligence. Recently... Read More
What would you say if I told you there was a battle going on, and the most devastating weapon of the battle was the one you’ll never know is being used against you? I know, sounds dramatic and covert, but when you stop to think about it (as I have), it may not seem so far fetched at all.
There is an old saying that goes “what you don't know can’t hurt you.” There is some truth to it as there are many examples of ignorance being bliss, but I can also think of many more examples where ignorance is destructive and prohibitive to the advancement of oneself. What you don’t know can indeed... Read More
Often I read parts of scripture not because I want to but more so because while researching for a blog or an article I stumble across some. I stumbled across these here (Not the picture, although it is confusing) and I really am asking a question here. If anyone can help me out, that would be grand
Isaiah 13:15-18: Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver... Read More
Professor Blistergot here. Newly ensconced director of the University of 'WHY?' (recently built for adults whose kids frequently drive them insane by their constant monotonic "WHY?") May i say before i elaborate on WHY Uni, with your permission may i proffer "why not?"
For example you tell your kids to wash their faces after a meal and clean their teeth. They invariably baulk at this simple request because in reality and by law, and by virtue of the fact that you are ONLY the parent and as such have little or no control over them. Back in my day your ear was twisted... Read More
“Because we believe that our ethnic group our society, our political party our religion is better than your religion we kill each other” (Neale Donald Walsch). Religion is regarded as true by the men of faith, for the Marxist’s it’s a wasting of existence and for the politicians it’s a serviceable tool to blind the will and wishes of the men who are eager to devote their most precious priorities in its path (religion). The renaissance period for Europe might have started a few centuries back but some would argue that the one who haven’t separated the two yet (Religion and Politics) are still... Read More
Let me just say that I’m just as patriotic as any other American in this country. I was born here, live here...and as selfish as it may sound, put here first. That said, it’s almost impossible to go anywhere and not be inundated by news or personal opinions about current affairs when it comes to Syria.
It is a heinous crime to subject anyone to chemical warfare, be they your enemy or the citizens of your country. As an entity in power charged with the protection of your own people, such an act is particularly horrendous. The death of innocents, especially children, is reprehensible.... Read More

The world we live in currently, one would be very hard pressed to experience rational peace and genuine freedom. "Peace", is a rare and almost extinct commodity. It is a shadow in the memory of humanity, a mere moment in the blink of an eye that we seldom...
Nice piece Credo as usual. You mention in context at the end "for fear of making war with the Gods." The keystone of peace lies crumbling,simply because the 'Gods of war' reign supreme despite race, religion,etc. Hypothetically if religion didn't exist...
I have serious doubts about the reality of Christ, but I have no doubt that if he existed, he did not look the way as the image commonly depicted in the U S and the rest of the West does. As the early Christians made war on pagan civilizations and cultures,...
