Sacrifice and Ritual
I don’t know whether or not you’re following Dr. Jordan Peterson’s Series on the Book of Exodus. This is the latest entry. Make of it what you will. To me, it’s a study aid.
This is episode one. Right Reason is humble, and rightly so. Idolatry seeks to dethrone the Most High in favor of an usurper. Whether that usurper is the faculty of reason, the pride of man, or the vanity of some high-sounding ideal is no matter.
Some of it is behind a paywall. Is it worth your money? You be the judge.
** You ask why things are screwed up. It’s a fair question. Within my lifetime, America went from legalizing no-fault divorce (California, 1969) to legalizing abortion (Hawaii, 1970) to making abortion a constitutional right (Roe v Wade, 1973) sodomy a constitutional right (Lawrence v Texas, 2003), the “marriage” of sodomites a constitutional right (Obergefell v. Hodges, 2015), to transvestitism and other sexual perversions being protected under the Civil Rights Act (Bostock v. Clayton County, 2020).
** As to whether Hillary Clinton is a reptile or a human, the Babylon Bee offers a DNA-based analysis for your consideration.
** (NY Post) – In Washington DC – According to a report, a CVS location in Washington, DC, was forced to wipe its shelves clean of toilet paper and replace them with framed photos of the products amid rising thefts in the country’s capital.
Suppose customers need to purchase toilet paper or paper towels. In that case, they must tap a buzzer placed on the bare shelves to summon a store employee to retrieve it from a back room, according to an Instagram post from the account Washingtonian Problems.
** NASA – “Webb finally revealed the connection between water vapor in the inner disk and the drift of icy pebbles from the outer disk,” said principal investigator Andrea Banzatti of Texas State University, San Marcos, Texas. “This finding opens up exciting prospects for studying rocky planet formation with Webb!”
** The Queen of Green – Climate Justice for Gaza!
Having sparked controversy by posting a tweet in support of Palestinians last month, Greta Thunberg doubled down by imploring audience members at a climate rally in Amsterdam to chant “no climate justice on occupied land.” A man then grabbed her microphone and, not unreasonably, complained: “I’ve come for a climate demonstration, not a political view.”
I don’t know what will happen if this doesn’t mark the end of the Queen of Green’s reign. It’s hard to imagine any environmental campaigner would have had the gall to interrupt Greta’s flow at the height of Thunbergmania. And she’s not 16 anymore, so I cannot blame inexperience for implying “Palestine” is some beacon of environmental justice.
** My former co-workers are dropping left and right. DP, pictured right, worked with me years ago. She ended her career with the US State Department in the Diplomatic Security Service. My career twisted and turned. So did hers, and we ran into each other in the strangest places.
She’s certainly not the last, but her death hit me out of left field. How is it possible? Yes, we’re all headed for that six-foot drop, but sometimes it’s a complete surprise. She’s the second in a little over a week. Ask not for whom the bell tolls. RIP, DP. You were a class act and a first-class gunslinger.
