Science is wondrous! It gives us ourselves! It's gift is release from our devils and hells. It's turned us to *gods* —though a lower case "g"— still it's gone a long way for the "brave" and the "free". It's made us efficient, extended our reach, expanded our grasp... all in all? It's a peach!
...Too, it shows we're a mote in the eye of the cosmic, a flicker of sentience not alone in the dark! It flies in the face of complacent indifference, our pride, self-possession and a hubris gone stark! See, we choose to avoid larger lessons it teaches, that we're a mere speck in the eye of some God who is so far above us he's blithely forgotten to give us attention, and so spares us his rod!
Perforce we are plagued with an odious ignorance... the sordid results of those faults all our own, as some lack respect for the folk shoved beneath them where lacking compassion draws blood from a stone!
Yes, some would ignore, and then keep from ourselves, the secrets improving our lives? Bloody HELL!!
The secret? That —power— to stand quite alone, take control of your "self", and be —safe— in your home? Well, Not trifled by persons providing short change, withholding respect and then showing disdain! There is a free lunch that will keep us alive beyond the constrictions of some, I surmise. But profit's now made with its roots in what's passed and we are obliged to light farts or burn gas.
"Some" worship proud science and grind to a halt! Their message is shallow! Its substance needs salt! Their shtick is a limit imposed to pretend that they, quite alone, are your saviors and friends. But that's an untruth and the same kind of lie that I find in man's Gods I decry and despise. See, worship your science and find, with a start, you're losing direction, your purpose — your heart!
The mainstream's co-opted, distorted, deranged, and pulled from the path of a truth-seeking brain! Its true use corrupted from what it should be — a "sense" that is "common", yet wise, and —YES! — free!
The mainstream's been hijacked by those with "agendas", psychopaths burning our bridges "befriend" us, and we're at a loss in their sea of malfeasance... They've hijacked our will and expect an obeisance!
My common sense tells me UFOs are, forgetting we can't know they come from the stars; though I am amazed at the conscience of some who would discount the evidence, so prove they're benumbed. Numb in a way that insures our dependence... Numb in a way that precludes our release... Numb in a way that is self-manufactured and lurking those shadows? Disgrace and defeat!
The bunkies opposing are busily passionate, the rest of us tired and lacking resolve. The bunkies are focused, concordant, and allied, the rest us back-bite, or quibble and stall. The bunkies get "air time" and coast the main stream, truthseekers self-publish or live in their dreams.
So how does it work that the least has the most; that the few will abide as the rest become toast. Well, the bunkies have "science" and "God" on their side, so the rest of us suffer the psychopath's ride! None call it treason that few would conspire to limit the heights to which we'd aspire. Though we are constrained, and against our best interests! Misinformed and betrayed we are weak and defenseless!
Comes a new dawn when the Eschaton's here. Concrescence is looming to predispose fear. We as we were? Well, we won't have a clue. We as we'll be? Friend, that's a guess, too.
Man's Gods. Memes and ideas, compelling though they may be and created by an individual first to stay on an intellectual incline, are ultimately hijacked and corrupted by the unelected few to do the convenient bidding of those few. These are the the remnants of Truth, reader, caught in an aspic of lies.
See, true stories, myths, and legends once captured in impressed clay and old stone from 8000 BCE and beyond endure, indeed, but, only receiving the most current indoctrinating spin to facilitate pompous priests and klasskurtxian kings of the most common era truth only, these are at last perverted and otherwise distorted to become a vehicle for the authoritarian rule of feckless sociopaths. As history is largely writ by the sociopath, there's a clearer record of same when one reads between the lines.
Praise God, eh? Not so fast, Skippy. Not unless it is the God described by Theodore Sturgeon in his capstone novel, Godbody. His is the only gospel worth considering, imo.
See, like Sturgeon, and Spinoza and Santayana, my "mal-attributed" atheism is born out of my true appreciation and respect for the universe, and not the errant Gods fashioned by men to do their self-serving and convenient will... commercial Gods made and then re-made out of whole cloth to impose the wishes of a predatory few. Remade?
Consider the ages old evolution of the Sumerian god Enlil: where God's evolution must be at least touched by some form of Darwinianism, eh? ...ongoing evolution into the single God of El or AL, morphing through his tortured transition to Yah-weh, the God of Abraham, then on to the God of Peter and Paul... shortly on to Allah, the God of Mohammed... Remade, like I said, to suit the convenience of his most powerful proponent... sorry. That's the alien view...
And then it occurs to me that perhaps we make (or remake!) our bad-penny skeptibunkies the same way we make our lap-dog Gods — by good "press," exclusively and regardless! Consider the highly controversial Kal K. Korff, by way of example, known hereafter on this monologue as triple "K".
"Deliberate Remanufacture" by a corrupted mainstream would seem to be the only thing allowing the triple "K" to do what he does, and that is to spring phoenix-like from the righteous ashes of being caught pretty foul vis a vis Art Bell in the not so dim past, Kevin Randle later on, and Paul Kimball most recently — certainly foul enough (one would have thought!) to preclude his inexplicably "honored" reemergence with such frequency! But not so.
It's something that these "strangely favored" mainstream pundits can do with astonishing regularity. Consider Gerald Posner of "JFK — Case Closed" as another perfect example. Here's another shill for the corrupted status quo very scholarly discredited by Doctor Michael Parenti's History As Mystery, but Posner lives on... a ready example of other well rewarded *mainstream* lap-dogs... earning their chew-toys by keeping the rest of us off balance, dis-informed or happily ignorant of the true state of affairs. I'm not the only one who feels this way...
An expansive search in the UFO UpDate archives for the word "Korff" turns up the following pieces of commentary gleaned from just =3= of 55 total pages of very illuminating contributions, from assorted people, regarding our intrepid triple "K"... 550 plus messages! That's quite a compilation of the less than efficacious on any researcher...
The gist of these messages is tres uncomplimentary... Even "I" don't get that much offended vituperation [g]!
Ordinarily, I'd be favorably attracted to such a wide beamed notoriety, but then I remember the bunch for which he fronts, and besides, triple "K" is wired in such a manner that he raises the hair on the back of my neck along with bile in my throat... view the archives referenced, if you have the subscription—and you really should—to get a flavor for yourself. Though, keep some toothpaste handy:
The referenced posts are intelligently critical of triple "K" (on balance) and begin to outline an individual begging to have his whole program roundly re-criticized, unfavorably re-considered, and thoroughly re-discredited. But up he inexplicably pops, regardless! ...UP he pops, again and again... What's up with that!?!
If it were me, or you, gentle reader, we would be sued, fined, secured to stocks, and otherwise solidly pilloried. We'd be tarred and feathered and run out of ufological town on a splintery rail. We'd be indelibly marked, publicly banished, and then professionally shunned. We'd lose our contracts, our book deals, and our professional standing, and we'd never be able to hold our heads up to be taken seriously again! Ever!
...But our spring-tailed triple "K" tiggers back up like a bad penny with apparently more Teflon per square inch than Ronald Reagan had on his slickest day! Rich Reynolds, the same, but I digress.
The overpowering remainder of the posts on the first three pages of discussion were numerous self-promotions written by triple "K" himself, or they were written by a few contributors taking inappropriate (and unconvincing) pains to be evenhanded. There was but one woman writing a glowing (near worshipful) review for one of triple "K's" typical debunking screeds (as a totally disinterested party?), but weeks before the book in question, reportedly, had been released anywhere in the world...!? But that's a digression, albeit related and pregnant.
I find that odd, at any rate. You might, too.
Eventually, triple "K" is going to get another opportunity to rise up from the justifiable (and well earned) ashes and spread his shadow-making wings again. He'll be ever so chock full of revelations, exposés, and the bearer of many "startling" new accounts!
Another nine-eleven knock-off making mileage on the backs of the sacrificed? How pathetically egregious. See what I mean about bile?
I suspect that he might even appear like he's taking investigative steps bravely forward, but I fear that we are only going to discover eventually, as we all have in the repetitious past, that he's slid us several steps unbravely back, surreptitiously, once again. You only have to remember his porcine squealing on the Art Bell show (like Ned Beaty of Dickey's "Deliverance" fame?) to wonder, as I do, how he would (could!) ever come back, but he does.
How does that work? How is it that any of the persons like this, even more thoroughly discredited, always come back...
None call it treason, but what do you call a betrayal of not just country, but all speciation down to the last critter walking, crawling, or stinking!
