LIONEL PODCAST: The Destruction of Critical Thinking in the Name of Gawd

It’s the quiddity of human nature. To think and to dissect and to parse that which is apparent and real and not which is gift-wrapped and force-fed via mythology and folklore. While the world burns, while terrorism infects humanity, while hate and dissension and distance rule the day you can always post some syrupy and saccharine pic about peace and sunsets and bunnies and feel like you’ve done something. Forget historicity, e.g. that the Easter story comes from inter alia the Sumerian legend of Damuzi (Tammuz) and his wife Inanna (Ishtar), an epic myth called “The Descent of Inanna,” that was found inscribed on cuneiform clay tablets dating back to 2100 BC. Forget that. That involves though and more than a drive-by conversance of recorded fact.

Look up if you want to be amazed. Look up and open your eyes and heart. They’re here, Sparky. They’ve been here. In the multiverse.

“I’ve been convinced for a long time that the flying saucers are real and interplanetary. Another words we are being watched by beings from outer space.”

– Albert M. Chop, deputy public relations director, National Aeronautics and Space Administration,(NASA) and former United States Air Force spokesman for Project Blue Book.
