The amazing biochemical cocktail I was given is doing a slash-and-burn in my 'Varky bod, killing the Viral Horde or whatever by the millions. Obi-Wan would stumble and impersonate an aspirin advert.
This to say I am feeling better.
Here is a book worth reading:
Gary North (Yes, THAT Gary North, the Y2K Harbinger of Note - he was correct as to the danger; he was incorrect as to how much had been done to mitigate the problem.) wrote a book of amazing depth regarding causes of our cultural decay, and did so while avoiding Muppetly arm-flailing. Key is recognising that the renascence of occultism signals the approaching end of a culture. Vox Day has elsewhere postulated that the shiny-happy-rational-sci-fi society as prophesied by the New Atheists like Richard Dawkins is not the ultimate end of a culture who rejects God, but rather a dark paganism, given (human) Nature's abhorrence of vacuums. See the rise of paganism at the end of the humanist Italian Renaissance. Unholy Spirits is a work that avoids sensationalism, but rather uses Reformation sensibilities to see through the miasma of hype surrounding everything from the Beatles to UFOs, psychic surgery, and other New Age stuff. Think the X-Files in Jesus' name. (I have actually resurrected my copy of the book to prepare for a Sunday School series at church. I hope I can sell this to the elders!)
That North offers the now OOP book gratis on his website is a testament to his seriousness about people knowing about his message. He offers a LOT of free and very good and thoughtful stuff there.
Have a lovely week-end! In a couple of days I shall share our latest radio ad, courtesy of Vidad.
