How close are we attaining the answers to God’s nature; His origin; his reason for our existence?
Actually, we are not. As many theories we come up with that are either dead ends or more questions raised. I am a researcher and all my life I have had questions. And still no answers. Originally the Higgs particle was going to be the answer to all the questions. Not!!! String theory too was to be the answer too. Now black matter and Multiple Universes are the future answers. Like the Tower of Babel, all men were confused by different languages imposed upon them by God. And every turn we make to understanding the nature of the universe new dead ends and new questions are imposed. Our modern Tower of Babel.
The message is that no matter how much intelligence we have God and his nature can never be understood. Not even Satan was able to understand.
We must accept our fate. The only answer to these question in Blind Faith.
Our family luckily does not celebrate Christmas and the insanity. We already had our true Christmas a few weeks ago, St Nicholas.
I remember every year after the war my parents and I would go to the orphanage and see if we would be getting a new brother or sister. And St Nicholas would bring everyone one toy. Usually a carved wooden statue of our favorite Saint. It was a beautiful time.
When I came to the states Christmas was depressing. I never seen so many gifts. It was like too much. I was eight. This was the first time I was disappointed in my father’s decision in bringing us here. From then on I did not care for Christmas. Yes I went through the mechanics of it. Smiling and wishing a happy holiday. And in the back of my mind wishing that I was back in Germany.
It was the true Christmas to me. The giving of ourselves. Not the fighting in stores for that last gift. Yes my parents adapted to the American Christmas and gave me a lot of toys. But the only thing I wanted was their love.
It was not a happy life until high school. That is where I found true friends. Another wonderful Christmas present.
Now I have a wife and a sister in law who are the same way. We give a minimal amount of presents and are together in front of the TV at midnight watching and participating in the mass from Rome.
This is the true Christmas. Caring and loving each other.
What happen to the days of politeness? What happen to please, excuse me, thank you, and sorry?
Today I was on a bus and this lady was setting up herself to sit down. And not aware that another person needed to get off the bus. She took her time and finally the bus driver was moving away curb. The woman screamed. He stopped. The lady who was in her way never took notice.
What happen to caring about others? What happen an unselfish act? When is our society going to wake up?
Every year at the end we tend to remember those that we miss. That is a nice gesture. How about instead of a gesture lets make it a lifestyle and remember them all the time. I think they would appreciate that.
They were a part of our lives a great deal more than once a year. So how about it. Lets keep them as a part of our lives in memory.
Happy New Year
We need the draft. Probably cut down the crime rate. These kids today are already killing each other. So lets put their passion to good use. It makes men out of them. And our volunteer military is not so much volunteers. Remember they are mostly National Guardsmen. Backdoor draft. We need to make it mandatory. Excluding women who are married and possibly pregnant. Before they start their lives they should serve their country.
Our murder rate in our country yearly out does the amount of people killed in the Vietnam War. They want to kill. Kill our enemies. My father made a career in the military because he could not get a job after WWII. These guys today are coming back to a country of disaster. We need discipline in our country. It has become a free for all.
The 60’s. Anti establishment and purity. Where did they go? Sadly they are now the heads of banks who are foreclosing on homes and uprooting families. They are the fat cats who are ripping their fellow man off and making them homeless. They are the ones who are running schemes to separate you from your hard earn money.
Now they are the establishments. Sad
