Memorial Day

Vietnam Memorial at Sunset


This is the memorial of my generation, decorated with the sun.

The last wars have not granite memorials, but remembrance in the heart.

Is Bush saying, "See, I toldja!"


White House: Bin Laden wanted Iraq as a new base.

If bin Laden had been caught, Bush wouldn't have had to look into a looking glass to help him decide to make war..

Flow it, Show it;
Long as God can grow it, My Hair!

The Arrogance of Angels

I remember watching Cosmos: A Personal Voyage and Carl Sagan speaking about the destruction of Alexandria. He spoke of the library there and described how it has gone up in flames, then spoke of the lost of many books. I felt loss and wonder if there were any copies somewhere else in the ancient world or would anyone know. Then many years later Henry Louis Gates Jr. did a televised tour, Wonders of the African the World and one of the places he visited was Timbuktu in Mali. He found the place that had extremely old books. They were so old; it looked as if they would disintegrate if you blew on them. I wanted to know what was in all those books; to know what knowledge Africa possessed before. Science, mathematics and philosophy in the minds of ancients; we know some of it and yet, even what is known, it is not common knowledge.

Even though there is a debate over evolution, there is the sense among many people that they are different than the ancients. They have moved closer to angels. Their knowledge is almost perfect, they are closer to Eden and science and technology will propagate new science and technology forever. I see these people seeing themselves as angels. They have arrived at the top of the evolutionary scale. Their knowledge is possessed by Western Civilization exclusively, as these angels would see it. Thinking they are the first in creation, their ego destroys the world as they move about it. When we saw this in the extreme, they were called Nazis.

Since the tragedy of September 11, 2001; it is has become common for the angels to discuss their superior civilization, culture, religion and ethics. Since there is no understanding of the enemy and fear; others who do may not consider themselves angels, accept the angel’s knowledge as fact. The fear of others; any others has taken over their psyche. This knowledge has thrown a veil of safety in loathing and not on terrorism. Racism, Social Darwinism, and Eugenics are the new ideas of the 21st century.

Would it be possible to humble the angels with the knowledge of the ancients?
