Down with Evil! Up with Good!

Hello everyone,

My time is a bit limited this morning but I wanted to address this article I found at Yahoo. Apparently Feb 9th is/was Darwin's birthday, and many macroevolutionests came out and had a big party. That poor sad little man. This theory of his has done more then almost any other teaching of our time to corrode Christianity, morality, and basis of right and wrong. As Sam Ashwood recently said in his great article "The Moral Base of Monkeys":

"I often wonder, Why do the college textbooks I study, that promote evolution,
and scorn any idea of Biblical creation, also condemn Hitler, Stalin, or any
other monstrous tyrants? Those dictators were simply acting out Darwin's
doctrine. How can any evolutionist/atheist say that racism is wrong?(I do not
include in my argument here those who believe in deistic evolution; though I do
strongly believe that they err, not knowing the Scriptures or the power of God,
and in all likelihood are unbelievers).
Is it not logical that some humanoid
apes are more highly evolved than others? Then why should not one group, if it
can accumulate the power, lord it over another group? Why can they not slaughter
them, if they think that other group stands in their path to power? After all,
it is only survival of the fittest. If they don't kill them now, that other
tribe of apes may some day gain enough power to kill them. So, we should issue
an apology to all the dictators who have received our calumny in time past. They
were only fulfilling the will of the Monkey-god."

As this article points out, if a person truly believe in "natural selection", what problem can he have with one group of people taking over, killing, enslaving, another people? A macroevolutionests/liberal response will likely respond that no one should be able to take away the rights of another human. Then you respond, who gives these people their rights? The government? That cannot be! Because in Hitler's day killing Jews was a government endorsed thing to do. No it cannot be the government that gives people rights... They will him and haw for a bit, and then you will say, let me tell you what our founding fathers said about that. He will look at you and wince a bit, then you quote the Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among
these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

There. That is who gives all humans rights. Not a government made with human hands, but the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. And this plague called macroevolution is working daily in the schoolrooms and universities of our land to undermine the Christianity and moral fiber upon which our nation's foundation rests. Why did Northern soldiers march into battle during the Civil War with the words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic ringing from their lips?

"As He(Christ) died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is
Marching on!"

I'll tell you why! Because they where obeying and believe the verse in John 15 which says:
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.These man where Christians! Our founders where overwhelmingly Christian! And yet, schoolchildren in our school are told none of this. They are made to believe that our founders where deists, atheists and other such. This is simply false. In the words of Teddy Roosevelt:

"Almost every man who has by his life-work added to the sum of human achievement
of which the race is proud, of which our people are proud, almost every such man
has based his life-work largely upon the teachings of the Bible."(1)

This is where the battlelines are drawn. Either we are going to study history as it truly is, or we are doomed to repeat the errors of those who have gone before. The greatest danger to our country lies in the camp of evolution and humanism, the two camps of forever one. If a person believe one he believe the other. Let us define humanism.

"Humanism is the belief that the human being is the supreme being. Humans are
capable of self-fulfillment, ethical conduct, etc, without recourse to the

Humanism set man up as God, by placing him in judgment throne above God. It is the ultimate form of rebellion. This is what happens when we tell schoolchildren they can't look at the Ten Commandments in school because it might make them think about obeying them. People turn themselves as a deity. In this land of ours, our founders created our form of government in such a way that to corrupt it, one has to corrupt the entire people, because our government rest in the people. The goal of evil is to overthrow all that is good, all that is right, and all that is Christian about our people, and to twist that into such a form of self promotion that our virtue will vanish like a mist at noonday. America has a long track record of fighting evil, and the author of evil knows this. Therefore he has chosen to attack us at our most vital point, our hearts, minds, and souls. If the evil one can corrupt us in this most vital area, we will fall at the first sign of trouble. I must get ready for work, but I leave you with the cry of Elijah to the nation of Israel:

"How long {will} you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal(evil, humanism), follow him."

America! May we ever follow Christ, the One and Only, True God.

Computer Repair

Hello everyone!

The last few days have been a whirl of activity. With school in the mornings and work in the evenings life is pretty busy. Yesterday, while I was checking at the grocery store, a man came in and asked my manager if she knew of anyone locally who worked on computers. My ears perked up, and I asked what the problem was. He responded that his computer was running slow and seemed to have a virus. After we talked a bit, I took his name and number and talked to mom about working on it. So this morning, I gave him a call and be brought his computer in. It is an AWESOME SYSTEM! With a 64 bit processor! Oops, sorry about the geek speak. :-) But this computer, in good running condition is what all my buddies and I drool over at the store and online, this one just happens to have a bit of a head cold.

I looked it over, looked in my A+ book (Computer repair guide) and after some work got it into working shape. It still has a lot of fine tuning to do, but it is out of the woods for now. This has brought me back to thinking about opening my own computer maintenance business. I could make much better money then I am currently at the store and I would get to work from home.

Something to think about anyway. :-)

Thanks for listening to me think out loud. :-D

Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies

Hello everyone!

Today, my family watched the opening night of the Olympics. We enjoyed watching the US team stepping onto the field in the Parade of Nations and hearing about who is considered a front-runner this year. However, just as they were beginning to end the ceremonies, I was stunned by a song that the Olympic Commission had apparently chosen to be sung. It was called " Imagine" by John Lennon. It asked you to "imagine a world, without a heaven(or a hell)" It asked you to imagine a world without religion and nothing to die for. The whole of the vile lyrics can be found here. And what shocked me most was, not only were people not booing the singer off the stage, they were clapping and even joining in!!! Our very athletes from the good 'ol USA were singing along with this heinous melody!

Oh America, from what heights you have fallen! When you stoop to calling for the falling of your nation and the rejection of your God! This world you claim to wish for is a doped up "peace man" kind of world which will never come about! In a world without government, in a world without law, morals or right and wrong, it would only be a matter of time before some ambitious evil minded person took the opportunity to enslave us all. That is just one of the many problems with this song and its philosophy.

And I am not the only one who feels this way! A quick run through Technorati will show you that there are other who picked up on this. Take this one for example.

"Have Europeans already forgotten that we just got through a century in which militant atheists (Mao, Stalin) and pagans (Hitler) staged the worst crimes in the history of man?

Oh America (and the world in general), what has happened to you?

I may at some future date write the reasons I feel America has fallen short of the mark and why our nation is drifting into the nuttiest stuff evil can conceive.

May God have mercy upon us, and bring our nation to a state of awakening and repentance.

Ps 9:17 ¶ The wicked will return to Sheol, {Even} all the nations who forget God.
Ps 9:18 For the needy will not always be forgotten, Nor the hope of the afflicted perish forever.
Ps 9:19 Arise, O LORD, do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before You.
Ps 9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD; Let the nations know that they are but men. Selah.

Senate To Vote On Homosexual Marriage Ban In Early March

Here is an email I got from the American Family Association. I have not heard much about the Marriage Definition Bill as of late, until I received this email. I hope it passes 100-0.
The Blogging Boy Scout,

Action Needed Today!

Help Send U.S. Senate One Million Letters Supporting Marriage Protection Amendment

Dear Travis,
The U.S. Senate will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) in early March. This constitutional amendment will make marriage between one man and one woman the only legal marriage. Your help is needed in sending one million emails to the Senate in support of the MPA. Senators who vote against the MPA, or support a filibuster to avoid a vote on the MPA, are supporting homosexual marriage. ACTION NEEDED TODAY! Those favoring homosexual marriage are already contacting their Senators urging defeat of the MPA. Time is short! Please send your letters today! Ask members of your Sunday School class and church to send an email in support of the MPA. Ask your pastor to put an announcement in the church bulletin and newsletter. They can send an email by clicking on AFA.net.

Click Here to email your two U.S. Senators now!

Remember, it is very important to forward this to friends and family if we are to reach our goal of one million. (Our system will not accept invalid email addresses.)

If you think our efforts are worthy, please help us promote traditional marriage with a small donation by clicking here.

D-Day and My Book Bag

Hey everyone!

Well, I had a paintball fight yesterday in which we reinacted D-Day! That was so much fun!!!! In the course of doing that, we discovered something that the Allies should have done on D-Day. All the troops should have been armed with full automatic weapons. A person with a automatic can make their own cover. :-D Almost everytime a guy with an auto-type weapon would attack the German bunkers, all the defenders would duck, allowing the rest of the Allied troops to reach cover on the sea wall. :-) We had a great time.

Also, I was hoping to do a Square Talk show on the State of the union address, but I am not sure if we will be able to get it together. HOWEVER, Alex told me of a cool new way to do a micro show all by one's self. So I may do that here pretty soon.

My Current book bag is:
When Character Was King (About Ronald Reagan, really good book. There is only one bad word in it, and that is included in a quote by an aide.)
Unfit for Command (About Kerry)
To Renew America by Newt Gingrich (Good Book)

President Bush's State of the Union Address

I was also at work when President Bush addressed our country last night, BUT my mom recorded it for me! I hope we can do a Square Talk Radio show on that soon.

It was a very good speech from what I have seen so far. On of the things that struck me funny was the Democratic response. It seemed...well...Conservative. It looked to me as if the Liberals are doing what they do best...flip flop...to try to regain power in a country that is leaning further and father to the right. The Democrat Governor of Virginia spoke out for them, and he seemed to be pandering to conservatives, speaking of "God" and "working together for the good of our nation". Both of those things are good, but strangely "Carter-ish". If the liberals are so willing to cooperate why don't they quit trying to filibuster conservative court appointees? The answer?

They are not moving to the right, they just want you to think they are. They are playing off a Southern "down home" Democrat with the goal of throwing the Republicans out of the White House and out of power. They have done it before with Carter and Clinton and they are going to see if it will work again. So do not to tricked, ladies and gentlemen, the Democrats are still liberal and it is only YOUR movement to the right that has changed their tune. And do you really want people who flip flop on every issues depending upon the latest poll making decisions for your country?

Very interesting. More later, hopefully with the other fine members of Square Talk. :-)
