God Has a Hard On for the Poor

Silence of Mind recounts a true-life story where the disciple (yours truly) is presented with his very own MISSION FROM GOD.

Silence of Mind being neither of sound mind or body but none the less, a hardy survivor of the great American Bible Belt, does bear witness to the workings of  God most merciful.Blue's BrothersAnd whereas, most devout Christian men hallucinate themselves to be great Pauline preachers of the Gospel of Wisdom, God has laid his heavy hand on the back of Silence of Mind so that he might crawl on his belly like a reptile, his speech being merely the soundless flicking of forked tongue.

“Woe to you who come under the spell of the wily priest.” – anonymous

Many moons ago, I went to Confession to be absolved of my sins.  The priest as is usual gave me penance (an activity, action or prayer of atonement).  I was to do a favor, a kindness for someone.  The catch was that I couldn’t cook up the act of kindness myself.  I had to wait for any random someone to ask me for it.

“Oh brother!” I thought, “What if my sister asks to cut her lawn, rake all the leaves and clean her house?”

I’ll have to say yes, and then my goose will be cooked for the rest of my life.  God couldn’t be so cruel and heartless could he?


The next day I was driving through the wilderness to the nearest town whose size was large enough for a super Walmart.

When lo and behold someone was standing out in the middle of road flagging me down. Traffic was nearly nonexistent on that early Sunday morning so I felt bound to stop and find out what was what.

It turns out that the young man in the middle of road had attended a nearby secret wilderness rave the night before, and he had become so stinking, blackout drunk that everyone just up and left him after the rave had run its course.  He was hungry and deserted and in bad need of a ride back to town.

Immediately I remembered my Penance promise to help the next person who asked me for a favor.

Apparently, God wanted me to provide better than Uber taxi service for a stinking drunk whose friends didn’t think enough of him to load him up in one of their own vehicles and take him home after the night’s drug fueled revelry.

When I say “stinking drunk” I am not being mean.  That kid STUNK.  In fact, he stunk so bad that his rank odor was glued to the interior walls of my sweet little pick up truck for over three weeks!

During the ride back to town, the stinking kid must have sensed my utter disgust. Yes, I was a slave of the Lord but that stinking kid was utterly disgusting anyway. His odor really got to me and I suppose I was having just a little trouble concealing my visceral disdain for his putrefaction.

He asked me if everything was okay.

I replied quite seriously, “For me, today, you are the will the God.”



Gay Rights In Action

A student at the University of Texas Arlington was bullied into suicide by his gay accuser and a university administrator who appointed herself as judge and jury.  The poor student carried out his own execution yesterday, Monday, April 11, 2017.


The full story is here.

“Thomas Klocke, a straight male, was accused by a gay male student of writing anti-gay slurs on his computer during a class.”

The university went after Klocke without due process, thus violating its own sexual harassment policies and the modern Western tradition of a hearing or trial.

There was no evidence presented by the accuser.

The accused was not allowed to mount a legal defense.

This case demonstrates what the gay rights agenda is all about:


The university administrator responsible for this travesty acted legally.

That is because universities are set up just like the United States government.

All power exists in the hands of administrators (that’s a fancy word for bureaucrat). The right to accuse, judge and punish is in the hands of one person.

Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College provides an in-depth comparison of America as it was founded and America as it is now, an administrative state:

Proof of God in the E. coli Bacteria

Scientific proof that God exists is found in various areas of science. Molecular biology presents almost obvious proof of God’s existence. This should be great news for atheists who profess to be champions of modern science.

Before presenting the proof, however, it is necessary to first define where the proof leads.

Since we are dealing here with scientific proof, a secular definition of God must be provided.

God, by nature, would be the first cause of everything.  It follows then that God would have certain attributes:

  1. All-powerful
  2. All-knowing

For this post we will infer God’s presence using his attribute of all-knowing. If God did create the universe it is reasonable that evidence of God’s intelligence is imbedded throughout the physical world.

That means if we can find examples of intelligence imbedded in the physical world, we can infer that God exists.

But what constitutes an example of intelligence?

Well, say you were out rock hunting and you found a stone tablet with patterns of scribbles on them.  Later it was found that the patterns of scribbles were written in an actual language that told a story from long ago.


Figure 1  The Flood tablet written in ancient Akkadian by Gilgamesh.

That the author is intelligent and real is obvious.

Molecular biology provides the same analogy and this analogy was found in the lab rat of molecular biology, the E. coli bacteria.  It’s called CRISPR/Cas9.

CRISPR/Cas9 is the immune system of the E. coli bacteria that has been modified for human use.  And immune system possesses the means and methods to identify, remember and destroy foreign script written into the bacteria’s genome by invading viruses.

For an atheist it would be like the Hebrew modification to the flood story originally written by Gilgamesh. Today everyone knows the story about Noah and the Flood.  However, Gilgamesh is long forgotten, except by ancient history geeks. In microbiology that’s what’s called a viral assault and take over of the original organism.

And in the case of CRISPR/Cas9, the modification from the original immune system makes it just a little easier to understand. The modification to the bacterial immune system makes CRISPR/Cas9 a premier gene editing tool when put in the hands of molecular biologists.

Here is a diagram of CRISPR/Cas9:


Figure 2  CRISPR/Cas9

1. Cas9 is a enzyme protein (the light blue figure with the little cutters). Genomic DNA that has been edited by a virus (dark orange seen on the right of the Cas9 enzyme) feeds into the Cas9 enzyme on the left.

2. PAM (light orange) is an essential targeting component which distinguishes bacterial self from non-self DNA. The Cas9 enzyme snips the DNA strand at the PAM.

3. The guide RNA (purple) provides a template to write the viral DNA into memory so that it is immediately rejected the next time the same virus attacks.

4. In the lab the CAS9 snips out errors that are replaced by donor DNA (green).

Hopefully it has become obvious that literature must first exist before it can be edited.

In biology, the literature that defines an organism is called, genome.  Each organism has its own genome, or detailed literature that defines every aspect of the organism. It is from the genome and the power specified by the genome to edit, repair and remember specific parts of itself that we can infer the existence of intelligence.

From the squiggles on the Akkadian tablet we can infer that the author was intelligently expressing himself in a coherent language.

This is equally true of the genome which defines each individual creature.

In the genome we can infer that the author intelligently expresses itself in the coherent language of life on earth.

Modern science has proven that the intelligent author of life is God and the language it used is the genetic code.

The Truth About Noah’s Ark

Dedicated to the one’s I love (Clare and Violet)…

Atheists cite the biblical story of Noah’s Ark and the flood as indisputable proof that God is a cruel, genocidal maniac unworthy of omnipotence. But could this simply be an example of the moral blindness that atheists so vehemently deny possessing?

Let’s take a look.

Noah 2

The source of atheist ire and offense comes from the following verses from the book of Genesis, Chapter 6.  The following are verses that illustrate God’s reasoning and frame of mind.

“5 And now God found that earth was full of men’s iniquities, and that the whole frame of their thought was set continually on evil;”

“11 There lay the world, corrupt in God’s sight, full of oppression;”

Imagine a world where the meanest, most maniacal  bullies ruled and where weaker men, women and children where raped, beaten, murdered and enslaved for the pure joy of it, every hour of the day, every day, every where.

After witnessing the fascist Axis powers at the beginning of the 20th century the biblical description of mankind’s unbridled moral state is undeniably right on the money.

What was the Allied response to the “oppression” and “iniquity” of the Axis powers?

The Allies had no choice but to exterminate them.

Below is a photo of dead German civilians piled up like so much trash after their city, Dresden, was bombed to rubble by the Allies.2WWdresden2

Here are Imperial Japanese soldiers practicing Bushido on a baby:

1 Rape of Nanjing

Were President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill evil genocidal maniacs for exterminating the German Third Reich and Imperial Japan?

Of course not.

Similarly, was God an evil genocidal maniac for exterminating the kind of worldwide evil mankind saw expressed by the NAZI and Imperial Japanese fascists?

Of course not.

Consequently, the atheist insistence on condemning God for the Flood can only be the result of ingrained, willful, moral blindness.

Any questions?

God of the Bible – What’s Not to Love?

Atheists make the case that God is a cruel, malevolent, genocidal maniac. And since that is so, it is up to the a rational, capable, godless mankind to figure out for himself, how to be civilized.


Here are examples of God of the Bible (Leviticus 19, 1-18) laying out the rules of love to  mankind who is lost in hate, bullying, pettiness and greed.

“You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart.”

“You shall not curse the deaf, or put a stumbling block in front of the blind…”

“Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen.”

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Atheists deny God who taught mankind these rules of love and the Christian Western Civilization that wove them into their global civil society for the first time in human history.

Plato, Moses and Jesus Speak to the Futility of Atheism


Most atheists in the West are captains of whatever endeavor they are involved in.  For the most part they are great students, superb artisans, conscious medical professionals and passionate champions of what they think is right and just.

But what is right and just?

For the atheist’s endeavors as a student, right and just is excellent academic performance which yields an A.

For the atheist artisan (guitar maker in this case) an beautiful, sonorous musical instrument is right and just.

For the atheist brain surgeon what is right and just is the daily pyrotechnic display of technique, knowledge and artistry that lead to healing, healthy patients.

And who could not agree?

Universal agreement is possible in these cases because of a shared, common, objective standard of what is right and just.

But what about rightness and justice with regard to non-physical concepts like morality?

Witnessing the rightness and justice of great students, artisans and surgeons in action is easy compared to examining whether economic or political policies are effective (right and just).

This is because with the complex systems that make up civil society so much remains open to personal opinion with regard to what is right and just even with a shared, common, objective standard of what is right and just.

The purpose of this post is to demonstrate that with regard to the moral needs of civil society (what is right and just), atheism is futile. And for that we look back into Antiquity, a time long ago when philosophers worked out the basic moral foundations of civil society in Christian Western Civilization.


First up is Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher whose tour de force, “The Republic,” examines the nature of the soul using the Greek city-state as an analogy of the soul. Plato makes clear that man must reason his way toward the truth through dialog and prodigious contemplation.

During the dialog Socrates reasons is way to “the good” which is the form or idea which is the source of reality.  Nearly a 1000 years later in late Antiquity, Christians would complete Plato’s contemplation of “the good” with the understanding that “the good” is actually God.

God, the source of reality became the universal standard of what is right and just during the first centuries of what became Christian Western Civilization.

Next up is Moses who lived about 1000 years before Plato.

The biblical literature attributed to Moses provides the foundation for Christianity. In the Bible book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 5, Moses transmits to mankind the universal moral standard given by God. This universal moral standard is called The Law and boils down to a list of rules which govern personal conduct.

ten commandments, Jerusalem, Israel

Here we see that what is right and just begins with the individual and that The Law applies to everyone equally. What is right and just begins with the individual which is a thread common to both “The Republic” and the Bible.

In Deuteronomy Chapter 6, Moses exhorts the Jews to ponder or contemplate the meaning and implications of The Law. Moses’ exhortation to the contemplation of what is right and just is in common with Plato’s admonition to his readers to do the same.

In his letter to the Romans (5:13), Saint Paul issues forth with slam dunk Greco-Roman reasoning based on the teachings of Moses:

“Now, it is only where there is a law to transgress that guilt is imputed…”

That is, knowledge of what is right and just is only possible if there exists a common, universal, objective standard (The Law).

Clearly, the Christian understanding of what is right and just is not a product of religious dogma but of much thinking and reflection.

Finally, are the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.

Upon examining the Gospels in context with the rest of the Bible we come to understand that Jesus was steeped like strong tea in the teachings of Moses and the Wisdom books of the Bible.  That means that Jesus was transmitting moral standards based on The Law given by God to Moses.

And keeping to Hebrew tradition, Jesus taught using the parable. And Jesus used the tool of sound reasoning when conversing with those around him.

The parable requires much thought and contemplation on the part of the listener. This method of teaching used by Jesus along with sound reasoning indicate that comprehension of what is right and just requires rational thought and contemplation.

Jesus also  began each of his miracles with a short dialog with those people involved with the miracle. Also seen centuries later with Plato, the dialog produces literature that lives and breaths and meets the reader exactly where and when he is.

In conclusion, Western Civilization is the result of thousands of years of contemplation of a particular, universal, objective moral standard given to mankind by God, “the good” who is the source of reality.

Atheism is futile simply because it requires the rejection of the existence  of God.

For only from God can come a universal, objective moral standard by which to understand what is right and just.

That means atheism requires the rejection of what is right and just.

Logically then, futile atheism hearkens back to a brutal, uncivilized world where justice was always the advantage of the strong.



Why Brother Mario of Buenos Aires Is the Worst Pope EVER!

At the end of the Christian Middle Ages, it was papal idolatry, the prolonged and profoundly ingrained love and pursuit of wealth and secular power that disillusioned Catholic scholar and priest, Martin Luther, exploded into a megaton fusion blast called, The Protestant Reformation.

Europe was never the same and the once almost unified religion of Catholic Christianity was forever shattered to bits. The Protestant Reformation was European Christendom’s profound, intractable denial of Jesus’ passionate and poetic divine call for unity among his people.

And today, the Christian world (i.e., Western Civilization) is being torn asunder by another idolater: none other than Pope Francis (nee Mario Bergoglio), Bishop of Rome.


What makes Pope Francis an idolater?

Pope Francis is a radical leftist.

That means his true religion is radical leftist political philosophy, not the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ.

And that means that Pope Francis has no regard whatsoever for objective reality and “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” which form the bedrock of the Christian worldview.

Here are a few examples taken from his latest letter that demonstrate the rotten black corruption of Pope Frances:

  1. “I know that you have committed yourselves to fight for social justice, to defend our Sister Mother Earth and to stand alongside migrants.”

“Sister Mother Earth” harkens a return to pagan religions.

And “social justice” is left code for totalitarian state control over every aspect of society.

2. “First, the ecological crisis is real. “A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system.”

Global warming is a proven hoax and there is no such thing as “scientific consensus.”

Pope Francis is thus, a liar.

And like any leftist who is intelligent enough, patient enough and ruthless enough to acquire a position of power, Pope Francis knows that he is lying.

3. “Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions.”

In this truly evil statement, Pope Francis not only willfully lies but he uses the time honored leftist tactic called moral equivalence to deny the existence of the Islamic Jihad.

The fact is that the Islamic Jihad is the perennial enemy of Christian Western Civilization and has been trying to destroy it since the Jihad stormed out of Arabia in the 7th century Anno Domini.

But there is one thing Pope Francis said in his latest letter that I can get behind:

“Where there is error, let us sow truth.”

Pope Francis through his in-your-face lying and brazen idolatry, has untethered Western Civilization from reality: the Gospel teachings of Jesus and the exceptional civilization that they spawned.

Nevertheless, I would like to introduce modern humanity to today’s Martin Luther:


Donald Trump, long may you run.




Christianity – Modern Civilization’s Critical Ingredient

America is truly God’s Country.

Humble servant of Christ, Silence of Mind, once drew the ire of his Catholic pastor by seriously recommending that the Holy See be moved to Topeka, Kansas, the near geographic center of God’s Country, the United States of America.


But once Good Pastor Jim took a moment to get over his ingrained and trained Catholic reverence for tradition, he was able to see clearly into the Silence of Mind:

“In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free — honorable alike in what we give, and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.”

Those are the golden words of Abraham Lincoln after the onset of the American Civil War.

In the centuries of late Antiquity, Christianity rose from a gutter Palestinian religious cult to the cultural and religious coin of the realm of the entire Greco-Roman expanse (Europe, North Africa, Middle East, Asia Minor, Britain).

Rome became the capital of the western area of the Christian expanse and Byzantium (Constantinople) became the capital of the eastern area of the new Christian expanse.

Ironically, Christian eastern expanse retained its Greco-Roman imperial government until 1453 when it was finally conquered and wiped out by the Islamic Jihad.

The foundation for modernity, what the world calls Western Civilization, was laid down in the Christian western expanse (Europe and Britain) during the Middle Ages. The Catholic Church became one of the most powerful institutions in the world, having inserted itself into the secular-political machinery of the decaying and doomed Greco-Roman culture.

Of particular note is that with the Church and various secular power centers constantly competing with and checking each other, liberty was able to break out in Europe.

The Reformation, the Italian Renaissance and the Age of Discovery all heralded the advent of modernity.


Such blazing social phenomena (all powered by Christianity) never, ever happened in any other civilizations throughout human history.

And this is precisely why Christian Western Civilization is the only civilization in human history that was able to advance past the slave and the beast of burden.

Christian philosophers gave us modern science, capitalism, authentic human rights and stable republican government.

It is therefore critically necessary for the people of today to relish the resurgence of Christianity in the American Republic.  This is because the common sense, morality and intellectual vitality infused into culture by Christians, makes modern culture possible.

Unlike Good Pastor Jim, the grand multitude of teaming humanity will never have the opportunity and marvelous fortune to gaze into the Silence of Mind for insight into the mechanics of American civilization and culture.

The next best thing is to watch THE Donald as he goes about establishing and running his presidency.


Dialoguing of the Transgender and Pro-Abortion Arguments to Find the Truth

The dialogue presented here, between a transgender leftist and a man educated in natural theory and modern science, is as rare as hen’s teeth.

Leftists usually explode into psychotic rage when their ideas and arguments are questioned.

But not in this case.

Both sides of the arguments presented here are prodded and probed and tickled by the respective protagonists.

Whatever side of the argument you take, do you see any points that were missed or poorly presented by the two men?

Regrettably, the title of the video is a bit aggressive but don’t be discouraged.

For your viewing pleasure, an argument between two diametrically opposing views,  fashioned like an art piece:



NOAA Scientist Blows Whistle On Global Warming Hoax

“A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.”


The UN and NOAA hoaxers tried to use the UN climate report to make a nearly 20 year period of stable weather disappear.

“The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected.”

What is truly strange and of great concern is how many seemingly intelligent people swallow government hoaxes so easily and so totally.
