Forum Post: The Internet of Babel

I was thinking about Noe and the covenant of the rainbow, after the flood, when I asked myself, "Who do we appease by sacrifice and what do we offer to curb the ignorance and stupidity of conservatives, who unchecked will surely kill themselves and take the righteous with them?"

With our Tower of Babel [made so by commercialization/advertising] Internet, and most for profit communications, getting the word out is still easy enough but it's so distorted most of the time communication is unintelligible.

In Genesis 11, the people made bricks and began to built a tower to heaven. God feared they would succeed so he confounded them by changing speech from a single language to many. The city, called Babel, was abandoned and the people dispersed. Not much more is said and the chapter continues with the generations of Sem, starting two years after the flood. It concludes with Thare taking his son Abram (and Sarai) and his grandson Lot "and brought them out of Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Chanaan: and they came as far as Haran, and dwelt there."

I hope you aren't counting on the god of Abraham to confound the conservatives, who are building their tower to heaven by impoverishing and enslaving the rest of us with debt. For one thing it's our masters who're making language and communication unintelligible by disinformation lies, spin and just plain bullshit.

I'm sorry - But - I think you actually mean = Main Stream Media "Of Babel". The internet media being of communication depending more on honest report - except where the mainstream can force it's way in to disrupt "honest" communication on the internet.

I should have said main stream media including the commercialized internet that's harder and harder to extract info from as google et al inserts dozens of advertisements and parasite links ahead of the actual source sights I'm looking for. Many of the parasites try to insert pay for links to the free info sights of the old free internet. It's more and more babel everyday and soon the net will be as useless as FOX pseudo news.

It's not just the Conservatives who have the problem of recognizing statistical facts over the longer term. You know the ones who often talk "God, God, God!" while thumping the Bible "Hell, Hell, Hell!" and have seemingly Never ever studied and understood what they hold as the Holy Book. Other religions are not exempt, either.

Even as intelligent as Obama was, it took him quite a while to "get climate change." His idea was to "compromise," which was not much different from the triangulators of the 1990's. Moderating while triangulating using a point at infinity means any stupidity is very rationally determined.

I knew we had a disinformation problem with "climate change" when ordinary folks threw up technical terms online and yet didn't know many definitions. China surpassed us in recognizing the perils of climate change. When the Politburo moves, things get done - bw was right about that our corporatocracy would make us eat the dust eventually. "You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life." - Genesis 3:14.

We certainly had a Dust Bowl before so we know for sure that we'll have a bowl available to catch all of our abundant food as promised by God. Every President of ours is a newbie, now we also have bombies on the world stage. No more baby boom, bombie boom is in vogue.

The equivalence of Archimedes' lever to move the Earth exists in Mathematics. Append divide by zero as a legal operation to the axioms and one can prove anything logically. The end is near so I'll sell you insurance to take care of your loved ones left behind when the Rapture takes you, righteous one, away to be a Child of God, by God, and with God.

One only ever hears from the bible thumpers who are radicals (racists - sorry - I believe I meant to say insane fanatics and NOT radicals = fanatics/racists) in the belief that they are of the holey people and everyone else is scum to be trod upon. True believers (those who really try) - see everyone as being equal and deserving of all that is good in this world as well as in the next - regardless of whether these others belong to the same church or not and that no one is scum to be trod upon.

Oh, yeah, I just love the Hebrew Frank's ingenious slogan, "We answer to a Higher Authority." The rest are just salami's and bacon, I suppose. When we discover the newly created superior form of government called "free democracy" and understand it, we'll achieve the flights of the meats. Here's the ode to the American salami's and bacon.

Being an honorary tribal member of Petero Pan (Homo) troglodytes, channeling the musical spirit of the Red Rock on The Hudson, I must seek a rock within that red river valley to crawl under, too.

Fanatics do not have one race nor do they have one religion - they come from all corners of the world and make life miserable or impossible for those they feel are not like themselves.

"All men are created equal." - our Declaration of Independence. Fanatics are therefore non-men. They'll just love hiding the American salami's and licking the very greasy and salty American bacon. Communism got things pretty close to the ideal, "All men are created equally miserable before the State." Capitalism got, "All men are created equally miserable before Mammon." I'll go for, "All men are destroyed equally after bombie boom." Happy Chinese New Year, cock-ad-oodle-doo!(愉快的春節, 公雞廣告八面鬥。)

The ruling elite parasites certainly think themselves righteous and like the god of Abe. They're bloodthirsty, petty and inconsistent except in their expectation that the rest of us live as they command. Bible and Babel! Hmmm?
