Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2021-207: Death Is a Sure Thing, Why Rush It?, part 1 of 2

I expect that we will see some dynamic differences in the kind of things that kill us in coming decades.  If you look back in history you see how childbirth and minor infections could kill.  Diseases that are now treatable with hydration and antibiotics took millions.  Tetanus was enough to end your life.  And of course socialism tended to pass all of them in mass murder.

There are always new candidates coming up to bat.  Some are diseases like Ebola that have been around a long time but are just now making headlines in the West.  Others are the products of our modern culture and science that is looking for ethical limitations.  The misuse and abuse of drugs is taking lives all around the world.  Death is very flexible and adaptive.

Technology is a report card that is not finished yet.  Different types of radio waves seem to be coursing through our bodies on a regular basis.  With the proliferation of cell phones, pads, ear buds and all of the new stuff I am not aware of, our cells are under constant attack.  It is hard to estimate how that will come out in cancers and tumors.  Johnnie Cochran comes to mind.  He died of a brain tumor.  Was it caused by cell phone use?  

Wireless devices have increased the exposure to different types of radio waves.  To a layman it would make sense that an exponential increase in radiation going through your body is going to effect something.  The power of the rays decreases dramatically with distance, so much of what we are subject to is diluted.  But picture the power it takes for earbuds and cell phones to do their job.  A little might be shrugged off by the body but we are talking constant barrages of radiation.  As in anything, some people are more susceptible than others.   

Then you have the potential effects of other digital devices.  There is something about the refresh rate and the flickering of the screen that disrupts some people.  I have heard that people who suffer from epilepsy can have problems with certain types of flashing light.  We noticed when our son was young that watching anything that was animated agitated him.  It wasn’t the content, but the medium.  Picture several generations that have been stationed in front of screens for hours each day.  They stare at computer screens, smart phones, game displays and sometimes even TV.  What will be the effects?

To be concluded...

homo unius libri


  1. For what it's worth, I've read that 5G can be used to deliberately trigger illness in people and shot from satellite, can be so accurate as to reach you in your home.

  2. I am traveling and my hotspot connection would not let me respond, so being the ever resourceful person I am I decided to try reading my own blog and leaving a comment. We shall see.

    Being a Conspiracy Theorist is a lot like being paranoid. It doesn't mean they are not out to get you. I would agree the technology is available. Maybe that is what Hillary is using.

    Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
