People Losing Their Minds

 So it's official. Since tomorrow evening we are all under house arrest curfew to fight coronavirus. Because like vampire it usually strikes at night, I guess. Last time this measure was used by the invader during the WWII. Judging by the comments on  most sites, an average citizen is just about as happy now as he (it, they) was then.

Now I'm not going to fedpost on this blog, as you well understand, but it sure does give credit to various conspiracy theories. I still think there is a better explanation. Many people simply refuse to realise that Western governments consisting chiefly of nerds, women and deviants are getting progressively more incompetent and resort to draconian measures to conceal it. Take vaccination campaign, for instance: we are nearly on the last place, just slightly better than Bulgaria, which is last. 

In the meanwhile, Turkey already vaccinated more than 1 mln people. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Truth is, corona is dangerous, and its case fatality rate is on the higher side (quite comparable to smallpox, btw). The difference is that 50% of smallpox victims were babies under 6 months, while 50% of corona victims in my country are nursing home inhabitants with an average life expectancy of 2-3 years. The question then arises, is it really fair to destabilise society to keep them alive? 

In the beginning I was pro-lockdown, because we  didn't know anything about the virus, but after 10 months my patience is really wearing thin and I know I'm not the only one. Yet, when you read some reactions online (I wonder whether they are bots or just so autistic) and learn about young healthy 30+ ers hiding in their own homes since March and hardly daring to visit their own parents, you start wondering about mental health of our society. Of course these are all bureaucrats/ office workers. Am I glad my husband works a normal job...

On the other hand (yes, I'm still trying to be fair) you have people who will deny the virus exists or that it's at all dangerous or talk about Great Reset. Well, as I have mentioned before, I don't know about Great Reset but I know about incompetence when I see it.

 Somewhere during the last 100 years the lords of lies the powers that be had arrogance to decide that they could  control Nature and discard old taboos. Something tells me it may not end exactly in the manner they thought it would. Pride goes before the Fall, as they say.

Your Comments

All the comments on old posts (older than 2 weeks) go into moderation, and it usually takes me a couple of months to sort them out. I just did and freed some comments out of blog limbo! I'm sorry for the delay, please keep in mind that I'm not doing it on purpose, there are just so many other things which demand my attention.

Judgement Of The Nephilim

 by Ryan Pitterson, a review.

Judgement Of The Nephilim has close to 1000 reviews on Amazon and is the book on the topic, as I understand. Unlike in many similar works, the author (who is a Baptist, I think) uses only the Scriptures to support his theories and is highly critical of the apocrypha such as the (in)famous Book of Enoch. 

Starting with the Garden of Eden and the Fall, JOTN takes us all the way through the antediluvian world, the story of Cain and Abel, the flood and ends with the victory of Jesus Christ on the cross and the last battle. The author argues that the first Nephilim were the descendants of the fallen angels and women of the Cain's family, that this unnatural mixing led to the corruption of human DNA to such a degree that the flood was necessary to wipe the mutant offspring out, since Jesus could only be born of a fully human woman.

About the time of the Great Flood only Noah and his family were genetically pure, but the wife of Ham had some Nephilim genes which led to the reappearance of giants after the Flood, though their bloodlines were further diluted. However, they spread through the whole of the Middle East with an especially high concentration in Palestine (the land of Canaan) and thus the military campaign of the ancient Hebrews to retake the Promised Land was a total war by necessity. 

Ryan Pitterson argues that modern historians who decry "the genocide" which supposedly took place, fail to understand that the Israelites had to deal not with human beings but with giant bloodthirsty monsters threatening the whole of mankind and it was only because God fought on their (ancient Israel's) side that they succeeded in more or less wiping them out, with the last of giants being Goliath and his relatives.

Despite their military successes, early Hebrews became thoroughly corrupted by the Canaanite religion (worshiping the spirits of pre-flood Nephilim, witchcraft, necromancy etc) which led to further problems, yet Jesus Christ emerged victorious in the end. Still, in the last days the fallen angels will return to Earth along with the Nephilim spirits and try to corrupt the humanity again, but the last battle will reclaim the planet for Christ. 

The book is rather lengthy (443p.) but well-written, engaging, thought-provoking, and quite sobering. It has some drawbacks, though, in my opinion. The author's theology is quite orthodox and traditional but being a Baptist he does talk about things like Rapture and the Millenial Kingdom, which many other churches disagree about. He is rather repetitive at times, quoting Scripture at length, and then quoting the very same passage but longer on the next page. His theories about pre-Flood world and the identity of the angelic ruler of it are just that, theories. 

The part of the book which deals with Noah and his children and what happened later is much better researched simply because there is much more written about in the Bible (Mr. Pitterson also quotes various Victorian and early 20th century theologians at length, btw). 

If you take his theories at face value then you should ask yourself whether modern genetics and especially genetically modified organisms and all research on these matters is something which could better be forbidden.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in this topic.

WWII Fake Meat On Your Table

 

You would probably never guess that one can make burgers from oatmeal and eggs which taste very much like the real deal. It's another WWII recipe called "meatless sausage". I read about it over here 

and at first didn't believe his claims that it's  "the most convincing non meat-trying-to-be-meat recipe" he ever made, but still decided to give it a chance. What should I say? I've tried some store bought meat substitutes and this oatmeal  burger is by far the best of them, not to forget the healthiest.

And even my husband who hates fake meat kinda approved:)

Who Is The Master

When use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’

 (Quoted from here). 

That really sums up the politics pretty well, something which libertarians fail to understand.
