Meanwhile In France...

Specially for Ascension Day:

France has banned schools from using 'gender neutral' spellings, saying they are a threat to the French language. 

The country's education ministry issued the ruling last week after a push to include full stops in the middle of written words - dubbed 'midpoints' - which allow both male and female forms to be represented simultaneously. 

But the Academie Francaise, which is responsible for guarding the French language, said the move is 'harmful to the practice and understanding of [French.]'

France has banned schools from teaching 'gender neutral' spellings that place full stops in the middle of words because it is 'a threat to the language'

The Myth Of "Based" Eastern Europeans

 There is this myth going around in right-wing circles that Eastern Europeans are somehow uniquely based due to blessings of communism not being under Western influence for some time, apparently. 

I would say that with a possible exception of Poles, this story is just that, a myth. I could go on with my personal experiences of what they are currently doing in my neighbourhood, but that obviously would be subjective. Instead, I'll point you to some hard facts.

I'll give you one example which American traditionalists really love, Hungary and Victor Orban. He was pronounced the most based leader on Earth some time ago, because of his plans to increase birth rates. So let's actually look at these initiatives more closely. 

According to BBC news, they included women with 4 or more kids being exempted from income taxes. You only pay income taxes when you work, so clearly we are talking working mothers over here, something that American conservatives are supposed to be very much against. But wait, Mr Orban also promised to create more nursery places, i.e, daycare, again, something which President Biden is being heavily criticised about. 

In addition, grandparents will be eligible to receive a childcare fee if they look after young children instead of the parents, Orban said.

Because what's more traditional than Granny babysitting while Mommy is at work, right?

These plans may look revolutionary to American middle class folks who aren't accustomed to getting anything from their own government, but guess what? We have exactly the same rule in this country and many people are rightfully against it, because children belong with mothers, not with grandparents. 

We also have housing subsidies for low income families, and countries like Germany and France offer such amount of benefits per every child born that you could probably live on it, without any need for either parent to work. The only demographic who enthusiastically use them are third world immigrants or their descendants. White European women are above such nonsense, and would rather work a job, apparently.

Fundie Christians in my country do have lots of kids, btw. So it's not really about money, it's about mindset. The only thing which actually sounds based in Orban's plan is the interest free mortgage loan which is supposed to be cancelled after 3rd child. 

So why am I writing about it now, 2 years later? I've been following coronavirus debate on Roosh's forum and there are some folks who currently live in Hungary. "Based" Orban was the 1st to introduce vaccination passports and other draconian rules which would probably cause another revolution somewhere in the USA, yet he is still touted as an example by the same folks who criticise lockdowns in their own countries.

I know of one European country which currently forbids abortion, Poland. There is none to my knowledge which forbids divorce or restricts married women's employment. Yes, some are less progressive on alphabet stuff, but is it enough to qualify as "a based Christian country''?

I'm not so sure.

Happy Mother's Day!

 How did we ever come to the point when the word Mother, arguably the most important word in any language, the first word you learn, has become politically incorrect?

Personally I want to wish Happy Mother's Day to every mother, expectant mother and wannabe mother! We had a great day at the camping, it was +29*C in that part of the country (we left yesterday with rain and +11*C).

We went out and ate cake and drank tea and coffee, the sun was shining, the terrace was full, and everybody was happy that we are finally allowed to enjoy life again.

Temps will get lower the coming week, but still reasonable for May, and Thursday is Ascension, so a long weekend again, for many. Hope you all are having a fine day today with your loved ones!

Can New Vaccines Save Western Family???

In a shocking turn of events, Melinda Gates has changed her mind about divorcing Bill Gates only minutes after receiving the COVID vaccine.

"I have changed my mind and do not want a divorce from this amazing and handsome man," said Melinda with a glazed look in her eye. "Bill is perfect in every way. I cannot live without him. Also, Windows is the best operating system and Internet Explorer is the best way to surf the world wide web."...

..."I live only to serve my wonderful husband, Bill." She then changed into a 50's housewife dress and began cooking him breakfast.

Should We Trust MSM?

 Should we trust mainstream media narratives? My guess is not so much. Take the story about India I mentioned in my last post. Unlike some on the right, I don't think corona pandemic is fake or was planned, or that no one is really dying from it. However, I absolutely do believe that politicians all over the world have been using the situation to their advantage, and that the MSM create and funnel mass hysteria to some nefarious ends.

Last couple of days every time I go to UTube on my phone, the app shoves a new India story into my face, though I  never search for it. I watched some of them and read the comments. I don't doubt that they are in the middle of the 2nd wave and their healthcare is currently overextended which leads to more deaths and suffering. However, Western news agencies constantly insinuate the government's fault in all this to such a degree that some Indians were accusing them of interference into their domestic affairs with the explicit objective to hurt their Prime Minister.

That is the same MSM which constantly lectures us common folks about racisss. I mean isn't it like neocolonialism to try and interfere into a sovereign country's affairs? May be let Indians sort it out? Italy also wasn't doing that great last year but I can't remember constant attack on their government in the press. Also, some India citizens were wondering why do they always show the same open air cremation pictures accompanied by dramatic music, and even suggested that some images were actually from an accident years ago (a big gas explosion or something similar).

Especially British media seem to be very much involved, to me this also looks like propaganda designed for domestic use as well: isn't it great that we have vaccines and lockdowns, otherwise it could be just as bad.

India's numbers look downright scary until you remember that their population is about 1.3 billion and that it's like  31 mln people currently residing in the Delhi area and about 24.5 mln in Mumbai, and that horrible overcrowding often makes social distancing impossible. In fact, we know from the past that areas with high population density and poor hygiene standards were always hardest hit during any epidemic. I'm afraid the worst is yet to come.

Strange enough, the MSM don't draw the most obvious lesson from it all: the West is crowded, too, and if the borders stay completely open, we'll have exactly the same situation, complete with slums, extreme poverty and lack of clean water. They prefer to bash India for their problems while simultaneously shilling for big corporations, cheap labour and increase  in the amount of consumers, accusing anyone who dares to disagree of "hate".

So actually I totally understand why some folks go full blown conspiracy route, their instincts tell them that the MSM isn't that much about news any more, but all about creating narratives. The question is, if they are lying about all this, what else did they lie about?

Freedom At Last!

 Groundhog day is officially over:) Stores are open again though not to full capacity yes, you can enjoy your drink on a terrace outside (12 to 6 only), and the curfew has ended, too! In 2 weeks they're planning to open all the sport clubs, zoos etc and if everything goes well, in August there won't be any restrictions at all!

In the meanwhile, there are some scary news coming out of India, their hospital system appears to be overwhelmed and they can't offer treatment to those who need it any more. I guess that's what they were afraid of over here.

Anyway, I prefer to think that the worst is behind the back and I'm planning to enjoy the newly restored freedoms to the fullest. What about you?

Was "Titanic" Immoral?

 I have always suspected so, and it appears I was not alone:

These zealous enforcers of propriety are part of what is known as the sanguan dang, or “Three Outlooks Party.” Together, they form one of the most distinctive and surprising groups in China’s internet ecosystem: strict moralizers in an increasingly amoral world.

Despite what the name may suggest, the party is not a close-knit organization with a clearly defined platform. Rather, it’s an umbrella term for a wide array of netizens — mainly young women — who share a similar outlook on life, the world, and morality, the “three outlooks” of the party’s name. At its core, however, their mission is simple: Re-sanctify traditional marital and familial values by any means necessary, which includes attacking anyone deemed to have violated either institution...

...On online literature platforms, party-aligned users take it upon themselves to rewrite well-known stories they believe harbor “bad outlooks.” For example, the site is home to a number of fan fiction-like versions of “Titanic” in which Rose’s fiancé Cal is the sympathetic hero, while the handsome young Jack is portrayed as a callous homewrecker.

Read the whole article over here

P.S. Whatever you think of Titanic (I thought they weren't married only engaged), real homewreckers should be shamed, imo.

Just To Cheer You All Up

 I don't know why, but when I'm looking at these dresses I feel happy (no affiliate, don't get paid anything for promotion, just found their site yesterday by chance).

May be we should return to dressing like this, at least on Sundays?

They Still Make Decent Movies

 sometimes:)

Here is another movie review. Ice is a British B-film from about 2013 and it's surprisingly good, if you don't mind its premise, namely man-made global warming and its consequences (and some propaganda about refugees). The main character is a climate scientist Tom Parker (a Brit, of course) who is trying to stop  Arctic oil drilling, predictably with little success. When the disaster finally strikes, he tries to get back to UK to save his family. 

Ice reminded me of American disaster movies from the 1980s. The protagonist is a European male, there is no s8x or nudity, little graphic violence and mild swearing, diversity isn't obnoxious and even a female sidekick isn't some *itchy stronk womyn but rather sympathetic and even more or less realistic. Tom's wife, who is a homemaker instead of complaining that he is a workaholic who is never home actually tells him to go do his duty. 

There is self-sacrifice and keeping a stiff upper lip and boys saving girls who predictably get hysterical when they should and a manly man who is equally good with scientific research and assault weapons and who finally comes home to his family. It is actually quite scary because it makes you realise that if a catastrophic event really occurs, it's every man for himself, as there will be neither government nor police to help, and the female survival will depend on men in her life.

It's quite entertaining, too, and can be watched for free on YouTube.

If You Don't Know What To Do With Fish

 Here is an idea:


It's called Fish Goulash and is probably Hungarian, courtesy of this book:


 I changed the recipe slightly, as usual.

You will need frozen fish fillets, (4 to serve 4) I used Alaska pollock

Fish or vegetable bouillon cubes

onions, green bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes (save some for serving)

tomato puree, olive oil, salt, chili sauce

Heat olive oil in a large frying pan, add sliced green pepper, onion and carrot, stir-fry for some time. Add frozen fish fillets, pour enough water to cover, add 1-2 bouillon cubes, tomato puree and some tomatoes, salt and chili sauce to taste. Cook until fish is ready, for about 15 min. Serve over rice with sliced avocado, some fresh sliced tomatoes and sour creme. Simple and delicious!

Is Female Empowerment All About (Attention) Wh8ring?

 For some (many?) it is, apparently. 

Fun fact is that the Scriptures mention running around nekkid as  one of the signs of demon possession. Coomers in the comments to the original tweet got very happy, though. Guys, please, don't be that pathetic!

Modern Christianity Is More Akin To Satanism

 I believe one of the reasons our society is so degenerate is because Western Church (and here I mean different churches/denominations as a whole) has lost the moral compass and isn't teaching what is right and wrong any more. Do whatever thou will shall be the foundation of your morality is the 1st satanist commandment from what I heard and that's exactly the position many churches take nowadays.

Say what you want about Islam, but their religious leaders have no problem teaching that nudity in entertainment, immodest clothing, fornication etc are grave sins. Yet for modern Christians, everything is a grey area. Like yeah, living together before marriage is kinda bad, but we should really look at the heart, and their hearts are in the right place so...Or yeah, divorce is bad but Jesus would want you to be happy and if you fell out of love and this loser wasn't nice enough to you and always forgot your wedding anniversary it's OK to divorce him, etc etc

Of course, there are some preachers who attack this status quo but they are extreme minority. Most Christians will always talk about not being judgemental, and let the one without sin cast the 1st stone. this attitude of moral relativism isn't new, either. I believe it was Leo Tolstoy in Anna Karenina who mentioned that the only thing people remember out of the Gospel is this woman taken in adultery, all the rest is conveniently forgotten.

All the admonition against sin, that is. Yet the New Testament mentions Hell fire countless times (of course, modern Bible translations try to get rid of the concept altogether by using words like Sheol which don't have the same negative connotations). But modern churches chiefly avoid talking about it and are mostly busy sucking up to politicians as not to lose their privileges and inventing reasons why the latest round of liberal degeneracy being pushed is actually OK and shouldn't bother Christians at all.

That is at the best, at the worst they will push downright worship of the foreign power and supporting suicidal immigration policies as being "Christlike". Is there any wonder young people, especially men, don't want anything to do with it anymore? Women of a certain type often thrive there, though. Not only does modern church fulfill a social function for them, but it also gives them a perfect opportunity to bring out their inner Karen, or I should say their inner pharisee and to virtue-signal.

There cannot be a moral revival of our society without the spiritual guidance. In the West, it used to be Christianity, but unless the Church starts confronting sin again and substitutes feminine pearl-clutching with masculine spiritual warfare type of activities, I'm afraid some other, more aggressive culture will win in the end.

Should Women Train Hard?

 I posted this video a couple of years ago, but it was later removed from YouTube, plus he added some new links to it. I should first of all put a DISCLAIMER, saying that I'm obviously not a fan of the guy due to...well many things, but he is the only one I know so far who talks about it.

A strange thing is that just as we are hitting the high levels of obesity and overweight in the West, we are also obsessed with physical fitness to an unhealthy degree, especially for (young) women.

I'd like to draw your attention especially to the 2nd link which states that urinary incontinence occurs in as many as  25% of young female athletes (average age of 20) who have not had children or other significant risk factor (ref 9).

It doesn't just happen in top athletes, but actually in such "feminine" professions as yoga/fitness instructors:

Urinary incontinence is also prevalent in fitness instructors, including Pilates teachers and yoga instructors, and at rates similar to that seen in other groups of athletic women (ref 2).

Even many "traditional" men fall into the trap, promoting things like weight-lifting and unnatural thinness for women (hence Varg's video is a reply to another guy). He is also right about most women not even having a natural menstruation because they are on the pill. By the way, the link above tells women they should NOT stop training hard, but just learn some techniques which could minimise their problem (basically being in diapers at an age of 20+), while admitting that 1 in 4 women could be affected. Apparently, it would interfere with female right to choose or something. Yet, young healthy women are pushed into getting vaccinated against corona, a disease they have less chance dying from than flu.

Strange how this freedom thingy works, isn't it?

Of course, if the objective is to make young Western women less fertile, then it starts making sense, doesn't it?

Strawberry Cheesecake Roll

 I baked it yesterday, and we ate it all already (I did share some with the neighbours :)

The recipe comes from Lidl magazine (for those who don't know, Lidl is a German supermarket comparable to Aldi), and as usual, I changed it slightly. Not all changes were for the best, but more about it later.

For the cake, you will need:

4 eggs (I used 3 eggs and vegan egg substitute powder, and it worked fine)

7tbsp sugar     

a dash of salt and a bit of honey (the recipe called for agave syrup but I don't really like it)     

 1c flour    

1 tsp lemon juice      

For the filling, the recipe says to use 400g cream cheese,but you'll be fine with 200g. I added a bit of yogurt which proved unnecessary and made the filling a bit runny; 4 tbsp honey (instead of agave syrup, see above); strawberries (about 6 big ones) and strawberry jam to taste.

Split the eggs and beat the yolks with sugar until thick, then beat the whites with a bit of salt and honey, they should be airy but not too stiff. Combine yolks and egg whites, add flour and lemon juice and mix well. Line the baking tray (25 by 30 cm) with baking paper, spread the dough evenly over it and bake at 200*C 10 to 15 min. Take out of the oven, cover with another sheet of baking paper, place on a clean towel and roll it up. Let cool. In the meanwhile, mix cream cheese with honey. Unroll the cake, remove the paper, and spread it first with jam, then with cream cheese mixture, then with sliced strawberries. Roll it all up again and place in the fridge for about 2 hours. It should look like this:


You can decorate it with extra cream cheese and strawberries. It's very sweet and fat. Enjoy!

Dreaming Of A White...Easter?

 I wasn't actually dreaming of a white Easter, but that's exactly what we got as it started snowing yesterday. We drove home practically through a snowstorm!

It's still snowing today, all this after the warmest day in March ever (like +26*C somewhere in Limburg). Weather patterns this year are strange...

Christ Is Risen

 I'll write more tomorrow, as we are heading to our new summer cottage for a short Easter break (yes, we did get rid of our allotment last autumn and now have a very cosy caravan; not the sort that you take with you but the sort which stays in one place and has to be moved by truck) at a nice camping/vacation park. 

Have a blessed Easter Sunday!

Criticising Female Entitlement

 It doesn't happen very often nowadays, but I actually did find a recent movie doing exactly that, criticising an entitled female. (Yes, it's going to be yet another movie review, please be patient:)

It's called Beautiful Beast and can be watched over here.

Despite it being yet another chick flick, I liked it more than your average Hallmark movie, it's less saccharine sweet, and has some elements of a real drama. 

The main character is a wealthy New York socialite called Isabelle who is about to turn 30. Her parents died and she was raised by her (very indulgent) uncle who is also her financial guardian and has the power to cut her off which he refuses to use even though Isabelle is blowing  her money like there is no tomorrow. She is a vain, empty, egocentric person who expects others to wait on her  hand and foot, especially if they are less fortunate. 

Instead of attending a charity event with her uncle, Isabelle chooses to take a ski trip to Switzerland, gets into an accident and loses her way in the forest, but luckily stumbles upon a present day hermit called Jeremy who is probably the first man in her life to tell her, no, and to put her in her place. Yet Jeremy himself, though very handsome, is hardly a Prince Charming as he has his own skeleton in the closet. Could such different people ever be happy together?

The movie touches on some serious social issues which are plaguing modern day America. It also has some Christian themes, namely redemption and forgiveness, and shows prayer and (presumably) Bible reading in a positive light. It's not feminist. When Isabelle finally realises how meaningless her life used to be, she doesn't rush to suddenly find a job, but turns to charity instead. 

I also liked how she isn't rewarded with a perfect man. Both she and Jeremy are broken individuals with the past that is far from ideal, which is again, quite different from many modern romantic stories where a frivolous heroine with several broken relationships gets a white knight to rescue her from her own mistakes. 

Further there is no nudity, explicit content of any kind or "language". I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Strong Women In Iran

 and other things...Today I'm going to talk about three movies I have watched recently. 

The first one is called Mazar Sharif . It was produced in 2015 in Iran and can be watched on YouTube with English subtitles. 

Genre: war drama. Based on real events. It's 1990s and Taliban is taking over in Afghanistan. Ten Iranian diplomats are stuck in Mazar Sharif, where their only hope lies in their diplomatic immunity. However, mujaheddin have other plans. They break into the embassy, rob it, then line everyone up against the wall and shoot them. One guy manages to survive, but will he make it to the border though? (hint: he wouldn't, without a strong woman to help.)

The moral: war is bad. It's also the fault of the West.

The next one is A Bullet For The General, a 1967 Italian film, which can be watched over here.

Genre: spaghetti Western. A mysterious American joins with Mexican rebels, ostensibly to share in the profits of the illegal arms sale, but what is his real objective? 

The moral: while others fight for common good, gringos usually fight for money (sorry, my American friends, I do love you:)

The last one is a (quite recent) film by Johnson Production Group, the one which makes movies for Hallmark Channel. It's called Three Weeks, Three Kids and is also on YouTube.

Genre: chick flick. A frivolous young woman is forced to grow up when the circumstances demand that she watches her eldest sister's three kids. 

The moral of the story: taking care of a family is not for ditzheads. 

All three movies are very different, so you can choose whatever suits your taste:)

Doctors Aren't Arbiters Of Morality

 Tell me why we should respect "healthcare professionals" again:

A mail survey was conducted among all physicians and paramedical professionals involved in late TOP (termination of pregnancy) decision-making in all eight centers with a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Flanders, Belgium (N = 117)...

Late TOP was highly accepted in both lethal fetal conditions (100%) and serious (but not lethal) fetal conditions (95.6%). Where the fetus is healthy, 19.8% of respondents agreed with late TOP for maternal psychological problems and fewer respondents (13.2%) agreed with late TOP in the case of maternal socio-economic problems (P = .002). Physicians more often preferred feticide over neonatal palliative care in the case of non-lethal fetal conditions compared with paramedical professionals (68.1% vs 53.2%, P = .013). Almost nine out of ten respondents (89.1%) agreed that in the event of a serious (non-lethal) neonatal condition, administering drugs with the explicit intention to end neonatal life was acceptable. Behavioral intentions indicate that even in situations with an unclear diagnosis and unpredictable prognosis, 85.6% of professionals would still consider late TOP. 

Neonatal refers to a 
the newborn and especially the human infant during the first month after birth, so we aren't talking abortion any more but straight out infanticide which most Belgian doctors working in this care unit are perfectly OK with. I would be perfectly OK with redacted.

Sometimes I wonder whether there is still something worth fighting for in the current version of the West...Glad we still have enough Christians over here, but for how long?

Palm Sunday

Assisi-frescoes-entry-into-jerusalem-pietro lorenzetti.jpg 

It's Palm Sunday today for Western Christians, the 1st day of the Holy week. 

We went to church today as we are planning to go on a short vacation Easter Weekend. To attend, we have to write ourselves down beforehand on Monday (!), but we are now allowed to sing the last hymn all together, which is nice. A friend in Norway told me everything is closed over there, till April 11. How are things in your neck of woods?

Gold Is The Girl's Best Friend

 Well, I don't know about the diamonds, but gold appears to be good for your health:

 From the ancient times, benefits of gold like healing and curing properties are used, and you’d be surprised to know how gold can actually improve your overall well-being. Moreover, one of the researches confirmed that wearing gold on skin can improve and alleviate rheumatoid arthritis symptoms in a significant proportion of sufferers...

So if you have some gold jewellery which you don't regularly wear, it's time to take it out of the drawer and put it on! It'll make you feel more feminine, too. It's not wrong to feel pampered.

 Gold is in itself something that makes most happy. However, its influence on the wearers health and life is more important than a fashion statement that if portrays while wearing them. Moreover, if it would help you to feel better by buying, receiving, or wearing an expensive piece of gold jewelry then it is worth a buy and anytime you feel slightly stressed or depressed, you can always look at it, and let it help you to become more positive and motivated in life.

Going Back In Time

 Feeling nostalgic right now, who still remembers when this song was popular???

Slandering A Woman's Honour

 In Islam, slandering a chaste woman is punishable by 80 lashes. 

They appear to take the issue quite seriously, and while the penalty sounds rather extreme by modern Western standards, the idea behind it is not without merit. In fact, I think the casual slander of women by some figures on the right is quite disgusting.

I'll give you some examples without naming anyone. When discussing a divorce in certain circles, not only all the blame would be automatically assigned to the wife, but her motives would often be presumed as the desire to wh*re around. The fact is, since we have a no-fault divorce nowadays, you aren't obliged to give any reason, and you guess what? Many don't. Some people were still raised with the principle of not hanging your dirty laundry in public. People will cite "irreconcilable differences" exactly because they don't want to malign their spouse and the father/mother of their children.

And actually, it's not really your damn business why some couple on the internet divorced. Unless you have the proof female adultery was behind it (which, of course, happens) it's really not up to you to judge. There is something creepy behind it, too.

Still, one could argue that those who choose to have a presence on the internet are a fair game, since they are now a public figure. OK, there is some truth behind it. But it often goes further than that. Instead of the presumption of innocence, there is the presumption of guilt. What about all the talk about church girls being sl*ts, who only bother to behave decently on Sunday? I mean, WTF? These girls are your sisters in Christ, and  they are also someone's daughter, sister and cousin. 

And then, how do you know they are all wh8res? Did you fornicate with all of them? Well, then it makes you a wh8re-monger, hardly something to be proud of. You are just as guilty as those women, and a snitch as well, and we all know what happens to snitches...

I have a feeling that some of these men don't really want a return to "traditional patriarchy" and they wouldn't fare too well in some of these societies, their idea of "tradition" is a 1960's James Bond movie. Every woman he wants he gets etc.

Also, young girls are under authority of the families/fathers. It's not up to some random man who probably just wants to bang her, to presume any sort of authority above her, unless they get married.

BTW, I'm not trying to say that one can't criticise women (or men, for that matter), or the general degeneracy of society, however, it's not really Christian or traditional or even charitable to always ascribe the worst possible motives to someone's behaviour, without sufficient proof. It certainly won't win any converts to your cause, either.

Is The Roman Empire Finally Coming Back?

French call to replace English with Latin as Europe's official language 

The Le Figaro article, penned by Sundar Ramanadane, claims Europe’s divorce from the English is complete, and says the feeling that French should be Europe’s lingua franca is hardly unique, pointing to articles by Germans that asks whether German should be the EU’s foremost language.  

But for Ramandane, Latin is ideal. How does one revive an ancient, largely dead language? The case of Israel’s revival of Modern Hebrew is used as proof that it’s possible. 

This is perceived as crucial and necessary if Europe will ever fulfil its dream of becoming more than a common market. The issue is an identity based on a common language and past, and this can never materialize in the status quo, he says.

Latin, he argues, is a natural choice. This is particularly given that every shared historical political experience in Europe leads back to Latin. From the Roman Empire and Christianity, to the Renaissance and Enlightenment, Latin was present throughout it all. 

It’s not lacking for culture either, says Ramandane, used through nearly 2000 years of history as the only common link between European minds, leaders and scholars. He goes on to argue that it's no stranger to modern languages, having shaped them deeply.

More importantly, he argues, Latin is well-suited to politics. In fact, some of the greatest orators and legal experts spoke in Latin, and one that will make it possible to train political leaders and civil servants in rhetoric and logic, much like ancient Greece and Rome.

 Time to brush up on my Latin? Boy am I glad now I went to the university, I still have my Latin study book at home...

The State Of Western Fatherhood

 Wife wants to take care of her baby, is accused of being mentally ill by her own husband:

 My wife’s company has a generous maternity leave policy, and she has been at home with our daughter since the birth and is scheduled to go back to work just after her first birthday in January. She recently told me she doesn’t want to go back to her job and would like to be a stay-at-home parent instead. I asked her why, and she said she enjoys being a mother too much to leave our daughter to go back to work when she doesn’t need to...

...one of the things I was most attracted to was her ambition and tenacity. It’s really surprising to hear that her career isn’t that important to her anymore...

... I really admired my wife for her work ethic, and I want her to set a good example for our daughter, too. Seeing her give up like this is really disappointing. I gently asked her if she thought her change in attitude could be related to a possible mental health issue... 

It's actually called maternal instinct, even cats possess it. It's what makes you a good mother. Yet, there are some women on the internet who will defend this loser and say that the wife needs to obey him unconditionally, and that the well-being of a baby is less important than the father's feels.

And yes, I met "men" in real life who pushed their (unwilling) wives into the workforce and then had the audacity to complain. The state of modern Western family isn't only the women's problem.

P.S. I've read a twitter discussion on the topic and some folks apparently have a reading comprehension problem. Nicole isn't the father's name, it's the lady who runs an advice column and she quotes a guy who wrote to her.

Obesity Crashed Western Economies

 That's why we have lockdowns:

Nearly 90 percent of coronavirus fatalities have occurred in countries with high obesity levels, according to researchers — who now want overweight people to be prioritized for vaccinations.

Death rates were 10 times higher in countries such as the US where at least 50 percent of the total population is overweight, according to a World Health Organization-backed study released Thursday  by the World Obesity Federation.

Not that vaccinations will help much in this case:
 
Researchers at the National Cancer Institute Regina Elena found that those considered obese — defined as having a body mass index over 30 — produced about half the amount of antibodies compared with people who had a healthy body weight, the Guardian reported.

Even WHO is worried:

“[This] must act as a wake-up call to governments globally,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus...

For Pete's sake, fatties,  overweight fellow citizens, lose some weight, otherwise we all will stay in quarantine forever:)

Civil Disobedience

 We had a civil disobedience action yesterday.  Restaurant branch opened its terraces, so that you could sit outside and drink something. It was actually in the whole country, but in many places police interfered early and shut everything down.

Our city government didn't intervene and the action went on till 5 p.m. after which everybody closed their doors again. The weather was very good, and it was full. Mothers took their children from school and went to a nearby cafe right away.

Today stores partially opened. You have to write yourself down, and the number of clients is very restricted. Some shops are closed still, others want you to use internet for an appointment, which I'm not going to do as there have been numerous security breaches everywhere.  By smaller stores you can write yourself in at the door. I've been to town and bought some things I needed, which was a nice experience, after 2.5 months.

The number of infections/cases keeps fluctuating so I'm not very optimistic. But today I've enjoyed myself anyway:) How about you?

A Word Of Warning

 about herbal teas. 

Herbal teas have become widespread the last years, you don't have to go to a specialised store any more, you can just buy them in a supermarket. 

They are sometimes promoted as a healthier alternative to "real" tea as they contain no caffeine. While they can offer some health benefits, there are also things you should be warned about, namely, that they can influence your estrogen, just like soy.

We all know that your estrogen/progesterone levels can be affected by caffeinated drinks, but it's also true about herbal substitutes.

A funny thing is that we often talk about "soyboys", but research shows that men seldom suffer from side effects of these drinks/supplements, while in women, and especially older women in can contrubute to severe hormone imbalance/estrogen dominance.

For instance, one of the most popular teat substitutes is rooibos/red bush tea. While it can boost sperm counts, it can also increase estrogen to very unhealthy levels

The same is true about licorice, another popular tea substitute, and hops, which are a component of some sleep aid herbal combinations.

Dandelion tea has been widely promoted as a means to balance your hormones naturally, but it has estrogenic activity, too. It can also lower your blood sugar. The same is true about milk thistle. 

Granted, for many people it won't be a problem, and they can experience many positive effects from these drinks, but it's good to know that there also could be some drawbacks connected to their use. Apparently, the effects can also vary from woman to woman. Thus red raspberry tea can be both progesterone- and estrogen boosting, which is rather confusing, so you probably should approach it individually, as in what works for you.

It could probably be helpful to search for info before one starts taking a new herbal tea.

 P.S. There is research which indicates that green tea, nettle root  (not sure if the tea has the same benefits) and possibly chamomile tea can reduce or block estrogen. Just so you know...

Neo-liberalism Killed Grandma

 It's time for our periodical corona-update. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel: since Wednesday next week, we will be allowed to visit "non-essential" stores again, by appointment (which in practice will mean that small stores will just open for everyone). And then, 1 week later, they promise us we'll be able to eat outside in a restaurant!

I already wrote myself down today for one store, others weren't so far with their planning yet. Let me tell you something, not everybody is happy! Some high-placed doctors were so free as to express their discontent with the government publicly. Which naturally leads to some heated discussions, where as usual killing grandma is still used as an argument. (WARNING: don't click on the link, it's very wicked, so there, I have warned you all:)

It's true that corona virus is especially dangerous for older people. However, apart from the ethical question whether it's fair to sacrifice the future of the (relatively) young to save 80+ers, there is something else to consider. Suppose Grandma died from corona, whose fault it really was? Was it because someone walked around without a mask, or spent too much time in the stores, or, Heaven forbid, ate in a restaurant? 

Or was it because the government cut the amount of IC beds more than in half (2300 in 2015 vs 1000 in 2020), there are problems with organising an efficient vaccination campaign and 60% of the hospital staff works part-time

By the way, it's not exclusively the fault of women, as the article implies. I have some 1950/60s pockets about "hospital romance" and an average doctor used to work 60 hours a week, and sometimes more (yes, they were nearly all male). Later, they discovered "work/life balance". It's now quite common to have married couples where both spouses are doctors/health care specialists and work 30 hours per week each. So we now need 2 specialists where previously 1 was enough.

Doctors used to be these noble heroes who would bravely sacrifice themselves for the public good, by entering a cholera barrack in a poor neighbourhood. They were supposed to take risks, just like soldiers do during the war. Yet, later, it just became another well-paid white collar job, while nurses changed from nuns/single women into married mothers who all want to work 2 days a week and have their vacations on time.

It's not exactly their fault, either, it's the way the powers that be have structured our society since at least mid-1970s. 

I dread to think what will happen in 20 more years, when boomers and early Gen-X massively retire, and the male-female balance in health care will shift even further, while more than 50% of the population will be over sixty. Enfin, may be these doctors from Syria we have been importing lately will save us.

On the other hand, with our technical advances, we are artificially keeping people alive who would be dead 60 years ago, after their second heart attack. There is something very wrong with a society where1/3 of the population is in the risk group, and while you can't help getting older, being overweight/obese is your personal choice. 

We also collectively decided that Grandma's place is in an institution, not at home; because taking care of the elderly generally interferes with fun activities, and nursing homes are exactly the places where the most outbreaks regularly take place. 

So to sum it up, who it was that killed Grandma? Was it anyone in particular or is it just the way our society functions nowadays? There is too much market fetishism on the right. Some things, like health care, should be about care and prevention of dangerous diseases, not about profits. So if you want to blame someone, blame neoliberalism. We have tried communism, we have tried capitalism, may be it's time for the third way/populism?

Speaking Of Nigerians

 Since Western movies are getting worse and worse, I turned to non-Western sources and recently watched a Nigerian 2016 film called Childless Wife But I Love Her

Based on the name, you'll probably think that it is a melodrama, but in reality, it's a HORROR movie (or a mini-series, to be more precise), with some soapy elements.

The story goes as follows: the chief character Chibuzor and his wife Mirabel have been married for 6 years but have no kids still. While Chibuzor keeps hoping it will happen some day, his mother isn't so optimistic. She is mocked by other women in her village for having no grandkids. 

About the same time, Chibuzor, who has a well-paying job in town, buys a new house and his mother comes to visit. She tells him Mirabel can't get pregnant because she sold her uterus to the Devil for the powers of witchcraft. Her son doesn't believe her, but at the same time Mirabel starts behaving very strangely and claims their villa is haunted, which makes him change his mind. 

The marriage deteriorates further because Chibuzor is being pursued by his colleague and ex-mistress Sophy, but when he becomes dangerously sick, it's up to his wife and his best friend to solve the mystery surrounding the villa in order to save his life...

As you see, there is quite a lot of content here to unpack. In the beginning it's rather boring and soapy, but as the action keeps developing, it gets really thrilling so that I stayed glued and watched it all in one day (its like 3 hours long).  The main drawback was a s*x scene. Though there was no apparent nudity, it was somewhat too realistic to my taste, and some other things were borderline, too. The acting was not always up-to-date, but the mother-in-law was superb. You did want to slap her at times (many times, actually:).

On the positive side, the film gives a glimpse into a very different culture which is still very patriarchal. The wife, for instance, instead of running straight into a divorce court, is trying to win her husband back. She refuses to take revenge, saying that her God will fight for her. Religion, in this case, Catholicism, is given a very prominent place in the movie and shown a lot of respect. There is also a positive depiction of housewives.

Another thing I found interesting, were clothes. While at home, Mirabel is wearing a short skirt, but for official occasions, she changes into long formal skirts/dresses, and when going to church, adds a veil, which is unthinkable for many Western women. 

The lesson of the story is quite straightforward, the end doesn't justify the means; and if you sell you soul for worldly goods, you will pay a high price, but repentance is still possible for everyone and faith triumphs over evil. 

So would I recommend this movie? I will admit I'm not entirely comfortable with horror as genre and this film is not an exception. I'm not sure Christians should be busy with things like sorcery and witchcraft, even though I did watch it. If you are OK with it, then you can give it a try.

The Eye Of Sauron Falls On Nigeria

 Nobody is safe any more, even Africans. Whatever one thinks about the issue, every sovereign country should be free to decide it for themselves. Sanctions are an act of war. Dear Americans, people around the world don't hate you "for your freedoms"...

Want To Stay Healthy? Avoid Hospitals!

 All the while "non-essential" stores stay largely closed, except for "click and collect", the truth about the real source of corona infections keeps coming out, like the fact that it is spread through hospitals:

Up to 40 per cent of coronavirus infections in hospital patients during the first wave of the pandemic could have been caught on NHS wards, scientists have claimed in evidence presented to No10's top advisers.

It is as I have always suspected. Another 40% is spread through nursing homes and similar institutions, at-home care and social workers going door-to-door to remind the unemployed to brush their teeth on time. And the last 20% will be visiting, school and workplace, but, of course, we can't admit it since it would highlight our society's real problems (like outsourcing of elderly care from family to strangers), so we'll have to keep these stores closed another month, or until Germany opens theirs.

The current epidemic is a good reason to engage in fat-shaming though:

Anthea Turner has been accused of fat-shaming and an attack on disabled people with a Twitter rant on the NHS and the Covid pandemic.

The ex-Blue Peter presenter, 60, shared a cartoon of a large woman in a wheelchair, who is carrying a McDonald’s bag, warning a maskless female: “Put a mask on! You’re putting my health at risk.”

She captioned the image: “Go for it!”

She went on to criticise the “selfish attitudes” of people who she accused of “lazy lifestyle choices” that “endanger us all”.

Is Being Nice A Virtue?

 We are all told to believe that yes, it is so. But is it really true? Now I'm not saying that you should go around starting fights and being in general nasty. Yet, I do believe that modern Western niceness has been taken to a very unhealthy degree. I remember how I was taught in my English class that "English people are always saying sorry." (Not that it's much different where I live). Is it really healthy? Should you apologise when you did nothing wrong? Should you always go out of you way to please others? I don't believe it.

Before you start talking about Christian morality, Eastern and Southern Europe are much more Christian than the West, the North and the Anglos and yet they aren't afraid to stand up for their rights. They aren't such pushovers. Imo, what is presented as "Christian" nowadays is just bourgeois (Anglo-) Protestant Victorian morals. There lies the root of the modern moral crusaders and virtue signalling. Bourgeois people often hate working class because they see them as "crude" (nowadays mostly accusing them of various "isms"), and constantly virtue signal in order to prove themselves superior.

Upper classes will virtue signal in public but in private life will just live like they always used to, btw. Their status isn't in danger so they don't really have to prove anything. Bourgeoisie, on the other hand, is constantly socially striving. Think Hyacinth from "Keeping Up Appearances." The latest trend by bourgeois youth is snitching on their own family being politically incorrect for social upcummies.

This is truly despicable behaviour and no other group outside of Anglo-Europeans is doing it. "Snitches are *itches who wear stitches", comes to mind. Unless someone of your family engages in really horrific/criminal stuff (like child s*x abuse, for instance) you don't snitch, period. Snitching on your own flesh and blood for making a politically incorrect joke is lower than low. Only someone totally devoid of all honour would do it.

Being bourgeois doesn't equal being honourable or Christian by any means. Don't be bourgeois. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. Don't apologise when you've done nothing wrong and you know it. It's even worse when it comes to politics. Conservatives always lose because they always want to keep moral high ground. They equal being right wing or trad with being bourgeois. The other side will fight dirty and stick by their own, no matter what, but conservatives will thought-police and disavow. 

There was a (now defunct) Christian site which used to republish religious tracts from the times of the Reformation. One of them dealt with fighting your political enemies. It rightly pointed out that "turning the other cheek" was a command on how to behave in your private interactions and had nothing to do with political struggles. "In politics", the author wrote, "one answers words with words and steel with steel". 

But even in private sphere, "turning the other cheek" simply means not starting a personal vendetta because of every little thing, it doesn't mean you should just allow yourself to be used and abused. Christian doesn't equal a doormat.  

So is being nice a virtue? In general, there's nothing wrong with being nice.We all should strive being agreeable to people around us, as far as possible. Just don't take it too far and turn into  pathological altruism.

Horror Winter Is On Its Way!

 We are supposedly getting a horror winter this weekend. First, it'll start snowing and it will keep snowing till Monday morning. They predict 20 cm of snow. Then the temps will drop all the way down to -5*C and stay this way during the day, but at night it will sink even lower, all the way down to -10*C, some unbelievable figures for my part of the country. And it will be this way for at least 10 days, and then while the day temperature will rise, at night it will stay below freezing point.

We went to town and prepared ourselves for the coming trial:) Though we are still in a lockdown, some stores are open and we could find all that we needed. Below are pictures:

This one is for me:


I do look cute in it even though I'm saying it myself:)

And some warm Canadian gloves:


And this:


Of course, we have other stuff already, like warm jackets, boots, socks etc. But it's always nice to shop for new things:)

I'll keep you all updated about our survival efforts, with pics:)

The Problem With Modern Western Marriage

 Why they suck fail.

We are moving together, if it works out, we'll get married, if not, we just separate.

Ever heard that one? Apart from it being a) sin, and b) a low class behaviour, from a purely pragmatical point of view, this approach is setting one up for failure. Why take such a drastic change (which often involves buying a new house together, a serious investment) when you aren't even certain "it will work" ? This attitude is prevalent in marriage too, "if it doesn't work out, we'll just divorce". 

You know what? Most couples who have been married for a long time have had their share of problems, sometimes serious. They stayed together because they were determined that whatever happens, it will work out in the end. They made a commitment to making things work out. It didn't just happen by a coincidence.

This brings me to my next point. People nowadays, both men and women, but especially Western women, are terribly entitled. They are the center of the universe. They only deserve the best. They can't except anything less than perfection from their spouse/partner. If a problem arises, it's obviously never them who is at fault, they just should find someone better and more suitable. Just read an average discussion board where women congregate. One will start talking about her husband and all the rest will join and tell her: "honey, you deserve better than this loser!"

Here is the funny thing, though. If you chose "that loser" it's probably because there were no princes lining up, so that's exactly what you deserve. The chance that you'll get anything better as a middle-aged, divorced woman with kids isn't really very big. It's even easier for older folks because after a certain age you'll deal with widows/widowers, not another divorced person with a baggage. 

The same goes for men, btw. Unless you are wealthy, you won't get "a nubile young woman" or whatever nonsense you read on some PUA site, but just a worse version of your own wife, plus kids of some other guy to take care of. I've seen it happen in real life, too. Divorce game only works for either very young people or those of the upper class who have more possibilities, not for the common folks.

And then there is something else. Westerners are extremely competitive. It's always "more, bigger, better" with us. Few people are just happy with what they have. Take the vid I posted previously. The lady gets lots of comments from British, French and American women who all tell her how they love what she is doing. Many of the same women just go to work the next day, often full time or close to it. They'll tell you they need money. Are we really poorer than Koreans? I don't think so.

What I noticed is that the Korean lady lives in a quite small apartment. Most of them do, even those with kids and seem content. While here in the West, families are getting smaller but the houses bigger. 

There are other Eastern women on Utube, some from Muslim countries, some from India. I even watched some African TV lately. All these ladies seem to be very husband- and family- oriented, so to say. They are pleased to create a cosy environment for their loved ones. While with Western women, it's often all about themselves, even with homemakers. It's her beautiful house, it's her successful children, she is the star of her show and the husband exists as an after thought. This way of thinking is a recipe for disaster.

Most countries in the world allow divorce. Yet in Hindu India, divorces are like 2% of all the marriages while in the supposedly Christian countries it's close to 50%. OK, our governments are secular, but many people still claim the name of Christ. Are we really in a position to send missionaries anywhere? 

I wonder.

Noah 2014

 a review.

Noah 2014 is a movie starring Russel Crowe as Noah and Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah and it is rather loosely based on the Biblical narration of the Fall and the Flood. It depicts antediluvian world as a dystopian wasteland reminiscent of Mad Max films (for those of us who still remember them:) with roving bands of men destroying and devouring everything they can get their hands on.

Already in the beginning the movie departs from the Scriptural narration showing Lamech (Noah's father) murdered by Tubal Cain, the story's chief villain when Noah is still a boy, which is, of course, unbiblical since according to Genesis 6 Lamech lived 595 years after Noah's birth and there is no reason to think that he died due to violence and not of a natural cause. 

The film features Watchers who are somehow positive characters but no Nephilim. Watchers help Noah build the Ark and redeem themselves in the end as they fight to defend it from Tubal Cain's hordes which frankly, borders on blasphemous, imo. The plot further gets a very unexpected twist since when Noah's family finally enter the Ark they are still lacking wives for Cham and Japhet, leading to lots of drama. 

Noah is shown as a misanthropic character bordering on religious fanaticism unlike his grandfather Methuselah who is a very wise and likeable person. It all ends well though, with Noah reconciling with and blessing his family.

Despite all this, the movie has some plus points, too. It is entertaining. Russel Crowe's acting is superb and others also do their best. It has some touching moments and some stunning scenery. It's also not feminist, Noah is the family's Patriarch and treated as such by everyone. I guess it is OK when you just view it as a dark fantasy story with some Biblical motifs but don't expect more. 

If we want real Christian movies, we probably should build a Christian version of Hollywood, if you know what I mean. Until then, that's the best we can get.

Beware Of Internet Crazies!

 Anyone putting their personal info online, especially if they run a popular blog/YouTube channel should be aware there exist whole communities of internet stalkers obsessively following any semi-famous figure and spreading malicious gossip. Most of them are educated English speaking females with apparently nothing better to do with their life than filling in hundreds of pages with their bile. I'm afraid they are doing it on their boss' time, too! 

They obviously think themselves witty, but  they come across as sore bitter losers trashing any woman more pretty/accomplished and feminine. If a woman kept her figure after having kids, it's because she has an eating disorder. If she's pleasant to be around, she's brainwashed by the patriarchy (no, seriously!) If her children show her respect, it's because she abuses them. If she likes to be a mommy, it's because she's a deviant.

These miserable harpies positively detest anyone who is happy and productive. It makes me realise there was a reason we used to have a punishment for malicious gossip. Now many men will complain how difficult it is to vet a potential romantic partner. Not in the age of social media, though. Here is some free advice for you, guys: just check your prospective wife's/girlfriend's internet history. If she participates in any of these *itch sessions, than run, not walk:)

People Losing Their Minds Part 2

 Today when I was returning home from a supermarket, a car parked on the other side of the street. The driver came out and started shouting about the police, corona and face masks. They are losing their minds, literally...

 

Friday, January 22, 2021

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:)
