Memo to the leftists: You don’t really have to exploit every serious crisis

Memo to the leftists You dont really have to exploit every serious crisis

The nation’s Left needs to know that trying to politicize and exploit every tragedy will only serve to further divide the country.

Word comes in over the wire of a tragedy and the twin emotions of horror and dread take over. Horror that people have died and dread knowing that certain elements of our society will jump into the fray trying to exploit the attack for maximum political effect following this tragedy.

Within minutes of the news breaking on the mass murder in Christchurch, New Zealand, the usual suspects sprang into action trying to callously use the deaths of other people for their crass political gain.

The infuriating reaction to the Judeo-Christian action of offering thoughts and prayers

Our political discourse has devolved down to talking point shorthand meant to ‘Rahm’ certain agenda items down our throats without consideration of human tragedy that has taken place. There is no better exemplification of this than the usual controversy of offering ‘Thoughts and Prayers’. As is typical of certain memes in our dysfunctional society, the Judeo-Christian action of prayer is often mocked by many on the Left.

The short hand of this meme is that we’re supposed to immediately think of how we can offer up more of our Liberty as a sacrifice for our ‘collective’ guilt. It is not enough to offer sympathy to the victims of a tragedy, we must instead think of ways to mitigate our ‘guilt’ in this matter. Whether those make any sense or will do any good is irrelevant.

An ever shifting blame narrative

It’s almost a sick obsession of some of the Left to use the pain and suffering of others to further their political power. They couldn’t make headway on Liberty control, since guns are tightly regulated in New Zealand. Therefore, they shifted the narrative to the next best thing, attacking some on the Pro-Liberty Right and going after free speech. It is ever supremely ironic that those who falsely cast themselves as being ‘Liberal’ have the cause of Liberty as their first target in the exploitation of these tragedies.

What they don’t realize within the confines of their echo chamber myopia is that they’re supposed holding of the moral high ground is only a circular logic construct on their part. They seem to think they are on the ‘right side of history’ because they tell themselves they are on the ‘right side of history’. This is what happens when one is unmoored in basic principles.

At this point in time, we are well apprised of what works and what doesn’t. Limited government imbued with Liberty is the gold standard, while other systems based on collectivism belong in the dustbin of history. This should be self-evident as in the words of Thomas Jefferson. Never the less, there are those who insist on replicating the same mistakes that have brought ruin to experiments in collectivism for over 4 centuries.

Collectivists are on the wrong side of history

Those who favor the dead-end of collectivism are on the wrong side of history. Those who favor Liberty and Limited government are on the Right side of history. Being on the side that is adverse to Liberty entails the need to take advantage of every opportunity, thus it those on the wrong side who have to exploit every crisis.

There is one distinct disadvantage of being disconnected from logic and reality as those on the nation’s Socialist-Left. If someone is so disposed, they may think that each crisis exploitation will bring them to their ultimate goal of ruling over everyone else. This is why they try to exploit every crisis.

The problem for them is that this does nothing of the kind. Granted, they will gain some short-term victories here and there, but after a while most people see what they are doing. We really only witnessed one prominent Leftist attempting to use the ‘thoughts and prayers’ admonishment.

The Takeaway

It’s always shocking to realize that the very people who by their cynical self-labeling consider themselves to be champions of Liberty and progress are nothing of the kind.

That their incessant exploitation of crisis only serves to empower themselves an enslave the people, moving backwards on the arc of history. Each time drives everyone further into separate factions, each time fosters more dissension and division. That while they try to use every crisis to unify the country under one banner this is more akin to bringing a team of horses under one whip.

Speculation about ancient human skull in Israel points to unscientific method of modern science

Speculation about ancient human skull in Israel points to unscientific method of modern science

What does an ancient human skull found in a cave in Israel tell us about the past? It all depends on which perspective you take and whether you want to follow sound scientific practices or manipulated conclusions from circular reasoning.

Modern science can give us a tremendous view of the past. With nearly every discovery, we can see God’s work at play in molding the planets and the stars, the oceans and the lands, the people and the other wonderful creatures. Unfortunately, scientists often distort the findings to fit in with their secular worldview. A clear case of this comes to us from a study published four years ago in the scientific journal, Nature, titled Levantine cranium from Manot Cave (Israel) foreshadows the first European modern humans, that is still being erroneously taught today.

First, watch the way that it is being reported. Then, let’s discuss the conclusions.

This is an important discovery, one that clearly points to a Biblical worldview of the roots of man from the garden of Eden working its way from what is now Africa into what is now the Middle East. It jibes with the story of the great flood, stories from the life of Adam through Joshua, and a centralized end point of ancient man in the region along the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa up through modern day Turkey.

Of course, that’s not what the scientists doing the research concluded.

“The is the first evidence that shows that, indeed, there was a large wave of African migrants coming out of East Africa and inhabiting the Eastern Mediterranean region,” said Israel Hershkovitz of Tel Aviv University.

One of the biggest problems with modern science is that our society blindly accepts their conclusions. They know, right?

Proper scientific method that we all learn in high school tells us the conclusions of the research are completely unscientific. We know a few things that are truly observable:

  • Humans very likely started in Africa and Neanderthals were in the Middle East.
  • Humans and Neanderthals interbred to form the basis for Europeans. Today, everyone other than purely African people have at least a little Neanderthal DNA.
  • A human skull fragment was found in Israel.

Given this information, it is obtuse to draw the conclusion that this represents a large wave of African migrants inhabiting the Eastern Mediterranean region. One skull fragment does not tell us that there was a large migration. One skull fragment does not tell us that it was a migration at all. Modern science must establish hypotheses based upon observable facts, but it almost always extrapolates too much.

This wouldn’t be a bad thing if it extrapolated based upon the Bible. We are told the general story of everything that happened from creation through the rise of the Greeks within the Old Testament. Every scientific and archaeological discovery in the region supports this general story, but a culture that utilizes far more distant time frames to explain the discoveries has generated the faulty conclusions that scientists present to us today.

The evidence tells two different stories depending on the observer’s worldview. It’s unfortunate that most have pushed aside the obvious and verifiable conclusions in order to perpetuate the paradigm of secularism.

Seriously, ‘eat mor chikin’ at Chick-fil-A

Seriously eat mor chikin at Chick-fil-A

A month doesn’t pass without some organization protesting Chick-fil-A to exclude them from participating in some program or even open restaurants in certain locations. This month’s version of Chick-fil-A hate was the last straw for Senator Ted Cruz (and me) as San Antonio’s city council has voted to prevent the fast food chain from operating at the airport.

Let’s call this what it is. Any individual, organization, or company that supports a Biblical worldview or donates to Judeo-Christian causes are considered to be anti-LGBTQ. The only ones who are not labeled as such are those who go out of their way to embrace the LGBTQ community and who promote such things as gay marriage. Faith-based institutions that prioritize modern day’s version of “tolerance” over the Bible’s teachings are often considered to be A-OK to the leaders of the LGBTQ community (as compared to the actual members of the community, most of whom are not involved in pushing the leadership’s agenda beyond believing marriage is not only between a man and a woman).

Chick-fil-A has done nothing to attack the LGBTQ community. They’ve always been stalwart defenders of equal rights and do not deserve the type of treatment they get from people like the six who voted against them in San Antonio’s city council. Yes, they donate to Christian causes. Yes, they let their employees off on Sunday except in those rare circumstances when they’re presence on Sunday is a blessing. Yes, ownership expresses a Biblical worldview. But such things shouldn’t earn them a place on the blacklist.

Nevertheless, they are, and it’s time for patriotic Americans to commit to a sustained campaign in support of this company which has become a symbol as a primary victim of the left’s contempt and discrimination.

Starting tomorrow (can’t start today since it’s Sunday), it’s time to eat out at Chick-fil-A whenever it makes sense. But don’t just do it once. Make it a regular thing. Thinking of other fast food joints for lunch? Whenever possible, don’t. We need to let them and everyone else know that if the left is going to continue to denigrate and block Chick-fil-A, that we’re going to counter their maneuvers by supporting them with our business.

It can’t stop there. We also need to let those who act against Chick-fil-A know, such as those discriminating against religious freedom at the San Antonio city council, that it’s unacceptable. Notice that I’m referring specifically to those who act against Chick-fil-A and not average citizens who protest Chick-fil-A. Protests are protected by the 1st Amendment, so anything beyond respectful discourse should be avoided with the people who have a conscientious difference of opinion. But those who act against Chick-fil-A, especially if they’re part of the government, must be dealt with at the ballot box. A strongly worded letter wouldn’t hurt, either.

Chick-fil-A doesn’t need our help. They’re doing just fine. But that doesn’t mean we can’t expand our support for them anyway. The best way to show or deny support is with our business. Give it to them. Withhold it from those who oppose American freedom.

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died?

Did Jesus die exactly 1000 years after King David died

History doesn’t tell us exactly when Yeshua was born. Luke tells us that He was about 30 years old when He began His ministry and we know it lasted approximately three and a half years.

And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, – Luke 3:23 (KJV)

We know that King David died in 970 AD. The math might start sounding pretty cool at this point, but I’ll elaborate.

Scholars put Yeshua’s birth to likely fall in the 6-4 BC range. Experts place the range of His death (and resurrection) between 30-33 AD as a result of the data that they’ve worked out.

If He did die in 30 AD, that would mean that he died exactly 1000 years after his human ancestor King David.

Some will point out that the calendars were changed, going from 364 to 360 up to 365 at different points within this time range across the various regions, but using the accepted calendars, we can claim that it’s possible for it to be a 1000 year gap. Knowing the amazing order and precision with which our Father has established His creation, it wouldn’t shock me to find out some day that it was precisely 1000 years all the way down to the second.
