Reality Check

Greetings from The Cave. I am changing the name of this blogsite. The address will still be http://www.patriotscave.blogspot.com/, but only because I do not know how to change the address without wiping out the entire website. Regardless, I am now calling this place simply: "The Cave". I don't presume to call myself a patriot per se. The truth of it is, last year I was inspired to create this blog when I started reading Michael Boone's blog. Then I started listening to Big John's radio show and I got REALLY fired up and inspired. Those guys are cut from a different cloth than I am. I have immense respect for them. But I do not wish to mislead folks. I have done nothing to speak of in the way of patriotism. I am a family man who just wants his kids to have a better life than he did. And a new world order does not sound any better to me. So I am against it. And I will always be against it. But I am no backwoods good ol boy who knows how to fish and hunt and build cabins and rally men to action. I am what I am. Honesty is my only exuse. I am an honest man. But patriot? That's a stretch. I'm sorry. I did not see it before. So I rename my blog. The Cave. Welcome. I'm sorry for any problems I may have caused by misleading you. I am a work still in progress. Forgive me. +++++++ Here is part of a post I did in 2008 about prophecy: Brothers and sisters, please read this prophecy from the ancient scriptures.In the dark time to come, wealth alone will be considered the sign of a man's good birth, proper behavior and fine qualities. And law and justice will be applied only on the basis of one's power. Men and women will live together merely because of superficial attraction, and success in business will depend on deceit. Womanliness and manliness will be judged according to one's expertise in sex, and a man will be known as a preacher just by his wearing a suit. A person's spiritual position will be ascertained merely according to external symbols, and on that same basis people will change from one spiritual order to the next. A person's propriety will be seriously questioned if he does not earn a good living. And one who is very clever at juggling words will be considered a learned scholar. A person will be judged unholy if he does not have money, and hypocrisy will be accepted as virtue. Marriage will be arranged simply by verbal agreement, and a person will think he is fit to appear in public if he has merely taken a bath. A sacred place will be taken to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a distance, and beauty will be thought to depend on one's hairstyle. Filling the belly will become the goal of life, and one who is audacious will be accepted as truthful. He who can maintain a family will be regarded as an expert man, and the principles of religion will be observed only for the sake of reputation. As the earth thus becomes crowded with a corrupt population, whoever among any of the social classes shows himself to be the strongest will gain political power. Losing their wives and properties to such avaricious and merciless rulers, who will behave no better than ordinary thieves, the citizens will flee to the mountains and forests. Harassed by famine and excessive taxes, people will resort to eating leaves, roots, flesh, wild honey, fruits, flowers and seeds. Struck by drought, they will become completely ruined. The citizens will suffer greatly from cold, wind, heat, rain and snow. They will be further tormented by quarrels, hunger, thirst, disease and severe anxiety. The maximum duration of life for human beings in the Dark age to come will become fifty years. By the time the Dark age ends, the bodies of all creatures will be greatly reduced in size, and the religious principles will be ruined. The path of the Holy scriptures will be completely forgotten in human society, and so-called religion will be mostly atheistic. The kings will mostly be thieves, the occupations of men will be stealing, lying and needless violence, and all the social classes will be reduced to that of serfs and peasants. Cows will be like goats, spiritual hermitages will be no different from mundane houses, and family ties will extend no further than the immediate bonds of marriage. Most plants and herbs will be tiny, and all trees will appear dwarfed and stunted. Clouds will be full of lightning, homes will be devoid of piety, and all human beings will have become like asses. ************************Truely we are in these Dark times even now. Knowing this, we act. We use common sense, right? If we know a storm is coming, we take shelter. If we know bandits are heading towards our village, what do we do? There are a few different options. If the bandits are in great number, and have superior weaponry, we may evacuate while we still have time. Maybe come back when the bandits are long gone. Or we may ambush the bandits if we can take them out effectively. The point is, we use the knowledge to act, to do something. We dont just ponder the news and put our heads in our hands and wait for Doomsday.
