Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War

Creationism: “Endowed by his Creator”
[courtesy Google Images]

Back in the 1990s, I published a magazine called the AntiShyster.  That publication focused mainly on criticizing lawyers and the judicial system, but I also touched on issues of religion.  I’d also sometimes touch on extraneous subjects that simply impressed me as interesting and important.

One of those subjects was Kent Hovind’s arguments in favor of Creationism–the idea that man really was created by God in the way described in Genesis.  According to Hovind, man is not the result of evolution.

At the time, I was in my 40s and regarded myself as semi-educated and reasonably intelligent.  Therefore, I knew that the Theory of Evolution was rational, scientific and undeniable. I wasn’t a “holy roller,” and I dismissed Creationism as a myth unworthy of consideration.

And then I read one of Kent Hovind’s articles that both advocated Creationism and also pointed out great logical flaws in the Theory of Evolution.  I was amazed. I no longer regarded Evolution as rational, scientific and undeniable.  I could see that while “evolution” meant “change” and offered a very logical theory as to how animal “A” changed/evolved into animal “B” which, in turn, changed/evolved into animal “C”–the theory of evolution cannot explain how animal “A” was created and came to be in the first place.

A Reader Wonders — Art. 1.10.1 vs Art. 4.3.2

A reader (“D.”) posed the following comments and questions:

 

“I’ve been ‘thinking’ and since I’ve watched the 3-part series of ‘Money as Debt,’ I’m now asking the question:  Labor is what really gives “money” its value and I understand that all currencies are fiat or unbacked.  Any clue or idea on how to measure the value of different types of labor performed in terms of gold and silver which I understand is the true money and of course what the Illuminati only deal in.”

 

I don’t know what form of currency the Illuminati prefer, but I do know that 99% of the American people don’t understand anything more about money than how to count it. More, I know that the concept of money is far more complex, mysterious and influential than mere counting might suggest.

For example, I disagree with your premise that “Labor is what really gives ‘money’ its value.”

If labor is all it takes to give money value, then there’s no reason why we can’t use fiat currency as money and no reason to prefer gold. We can measure the value of our “labor” in terms of corn cobs, pebbles, gold or fiat currency.

Changing Times?

In the aftermath of the September 11th, A.D. 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, a number of government spokesmen crowed that “this changes everything.” What they meant was that, in light of the 911 attacks, we could no longer afford the protections of the Constitution and must instead embrace a growing police state.

Although the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda was officially blamed for the attacks, much of America still believes that 911 was a false flag operation conducted by, or with the complicity, of our own government. Regardless of whoever is truly responsible for 911, the resulting police state (and correlative distrust for government) continued to grow for the next 13 years.

A.D. 2013 was especially scary as numerous domestic government agencies were exposed as having ordered over 2 billion rounds of ammunition, plus rifles, handguns, body armor and even submachine guns.   It was virtually impossible to explain these purchases except as evidence that the US government was preparing for violent conflict with the American people. The forces of fascism were either on the march or terrified by growing public distrust.

However, in the midst of our growing police state, a number of events took place in the past five or six weeks that seem surprising when taken individually and almost astounding when taken together.

Eleven Reasons Why You and your Family are Poor–and likely to stay Poor

The Wall Street Journal reports in “Five Reasons Why You are Poor” that, according to the Federal Reserve, household net worth rose to $80.6 trillion in the fourth quarter of 2013, up from $70.83 trillion for the same period in 2013–an increase of nearly $10 trillion over the last four quarters–thanks to rising values of homes and U.S. stocks.

Maybe so, but those numbers don’t make sense to me.

There are about 120 million households in the US.  If their total net worth is $80 trillion, their average net worth is about $670,000.  I don’t know how the Federal Reserve computes average household net worth, but I don’t know very many people whose average household net worth is anywhere close to $670,000.  If America’s average household net worth were really $670,000–and if that wealth were distributed on a bell curve basis–I can’t imagine that we’d have any economic problems at all in this country. There’s something wrong and fundamentally misleading about the $80 trillion number the Fed used to describe American total household net worth. . . .

The Wall Street Journal continued to report that “But . . . employee pay as a share of national income has fallen to its lowest levels since 1951.

“Here are five reasons Americans still feel poor:”

Going Postal: Gov-co Stocks up on Ammo

“Going postal” just took on a whole new meaning.  Apparently, Postal Employees are no longer content to shoot each other and are therefore preparing to shoot the public.

We know this because the USPS has joined the list of federal agencies that are stockpiling ammunition and firearms.

For example, the Social Security Administration put in a request for 174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point bullets.  Do they fear that the retirees are about to grab their walkers and storm the SSA buildings?

The Department of Agriculture requested 320,000 rounds.   Do they fear farmers and ranchers—or an attack by cows and pigs?

The Department of Homeland Security has requested 450 million rounds.  That’s enough bullets to shoot every American about 1.5 times.

The FBI has sought 100 million hollow-point rounds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also requested 46,000 rounds.  Why does a weather service need ammunition?

To date, over two billion rounds of ammunition have been purchased or ordered by a variety of domestic federal agencies.

The Bretton Woods Committee


[courtesy Google Images]

[courtesy Google Images]

In A.D. 1944, an international conference was held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to establish a new monetary system for the post-WWII world.  A fundamental principle of the resulting “Bretton Woods Agreement” was that the US dollar would be backed by gold and would come to be used as the world reserve currency.

In A.D. 1971, President Nixon closed the “gold window” and stopped redeeming foreign-held US dollars with gold.  Some people suppose that when the US dollar became pure fiat and was no longer redeemable in gold, the Bretton Woods Agreement ended.

However, the original Bretton Woods Agreement involved much more than merely promising to redeem foreign-held dollars with gold.  Vestiges of that Agreement continue to function and exert influence under the oversight of The Bretton Woods Committee.

President Obama–Stop “Helping” Us!


[courtesy Google Images]

[courtesy Google Images]

A recent article in The New York Times (“Obama Will Seek Broad Expansion of Overtime Pay”) reports that,

 “President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated.

“On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.”

The rationale for this increase is probably the belief that if people’s incomes rise, they spend more and theoretically stimulate the economy.

But, on the other hand, if corporate labor costs rise, either corporate profits fall and/or prices go up.  If prices rise, the economy tends to slow.

So what will happen?  By raising some employee’s incomes, will we stimulate or slow the economy?

Answer:  That’s the wrong question.
