Hollywood fakes   Leave a comment

So many times we are supposed to elevate and appreciate actors or actresses that made movies by some kind of award etc, but consider this….

Most Hollywood movie depictions are in no way beneficial and are for the most part very detrimental, even cancerous for natural human desire for peace and security.

Flight experience   Leave a comment

My friend’s wife wanted to reunite with her hubby in Cranbook B.C. where he was temporarily assigned by his employer, Zerox Corp.

I was a willing pilot with a Mooney M20A airplane. So his wife and I flew from Victoria to Cranbook, but only after a critical decision along the way. I attempted to take a shortcut but soon realized the weather had blocked it, so made a major 180 turn that scared her. After that, fuel was a factor, so it was just after sunset when we made it to the Cranbrook’s uncontrolled airport on minimal fuel.

The next two day’s proved to be another challenge;

solid overcast prevented VFR (Visual Flight Rules). Finally I decided to risk it, so we took off in a planned Northerly direction to gradually brake through the valley overcast by flying on instruments.

Once on top of clouds it was CAVU (clear and visibility unlimited) in glorious sunshine over beautiful pristine 8-10K Coastal Mountains, then over the Fraser valley and Georgia straight back to Victoria. Another very fondly remembered flight forever!!

iGeneration or what?   Leave a comment

There is much debate as to what, and/or who make up the so-called iGeneration.

My own humble opinion is this is simply an attempt to define what is an ongoing decline in respect, morality, and dignity for family and neighbor by successive generations. The evidence has been accelerating since WW1 & 11. In fact there has been a measurable accelerating breakdown since then; why?

The reasons are actually fairly obvious; as mankind has been encouraged to engage in progressively more and more bloodthirsty murderous militant engagements as promoted by religious, commercial, political or other worldly elements, moral principles governing humankind that may once have been held sacred by society have been seriously eroded if not completely overshadowed.

You simply cannot direct and encourage national populations to kill their fellow man, or be killed, and expect that they will still maintain principles of decency, morality, or humanity, it just aint’ goina’ happen brother! PTSD and other such mental problems today further confirm this reality.

So iGeneration is simply another attempt to define present problems by comparisons with the past, particularly since the beginning of the 20th Century, namely a steady moral decline, and hedonistic, self-centered march toward destruction.

Arguably it was further fueled by the promises of the industrial revolution, and continues today through the promises of technology. There is little doubt it is leading to a self-destructive world by undermining any remaining desire for genuine human development and elevation!

CLOUDS..0

Fleeting structures designed for the sky
Surely their maker with an Artists eye
Shrinking and growing, ever changing form
Like thoughts of mankind, each new is born
Eagles have insight whíle sharing His pallet
A ballet of flight, the heavens their stage
With clouds as curtains a dance unafraid
The Artists brush, ever changing venue
Grateful observers now give him just due!

Empowering   Leave a comment

After first installing the newest Itunes program I deleted it and found that to be quite empowering, why; because the almost infinite number of choices was not only confusing but simply unfulfilling, to say the least.  Indeed I cranked up my old stereo box and foujnd local radio stations much more satisfying.

New Fossil Discovery??   Leave a comment

Once again the media is simply thrilled to report on a factually unsupported discovery of fossils, stating they were a stepping stone in evolution.

How unscientific is this?  First of all these bones cannot and will not be dated accurately by any known means, and I do include carbon dating which is a notoriously flawed method.

But not only that, these bones are quantitatively similar to basically contemporary, so called ‘modern’ human bones, not at all evolutionary in kind.

No, once again, efforts to support the false doctrine of ‘evil-lution’ proves to be the figment of human imagination, and promotion, period.

Mark Train wrote: ” There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.”
(Preceding the above quote by Twain, he noted that the Mississippi had shortened 1.2 miles per year for 100 years. At that rate, he stated, the Mississippi had extended past Cuba in the past, and would someday be only a couple miles long in the future. Of course he was being sarcastic. THAT is the type of irrational thinking that assigns such ages to our earth. Scientifically, since we know the moon moves away from the earth each year, the moon would be in the center of the earth, as an example. I have yet to see ANY scientific FACTS to support that age assumption. Even the venerable Pottasium/Argon dating is irreleveant: the 1975 Volcanic eruption in NZ was dated by America’ finest argon lab to be 2 million years old. As Twain stated . . .)

Air Canada flight 831 disaster   Leave a comment

On the news tonight It was the 50th anniversary of Air Canada flight 831 crash after taking off from Montreal in 1963… all 118 were killed.

I was booked to be on that flight, weeks ahead, it was a connecting flight from Halifax to B.C.  But while celebrating (honorable) release from the RCN (Royal Canadian Navy) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, I made a last minute decision in the late afternoon to cancel, and re-book for another flight very early the next morning.

When I arrived at the Air Canada desk the next morning, the staff had just arrived and nervously whispered glancing at me while I waited for ground transportation.  I thought I must have revealed some evidence of late night partying.?  Completely unbeknown to me, apparently, they had just learned of the crash and realized I had been booked on it, many days in advance.

In my case this is just trivia now of course, but as Solomon so well said it “…time and unforeseen events overtake them all.” (Eccl. 9:11)

Our lives are so limited by circumstances we have no control over, I most truly sympathize with those who lost family members on flight 831, but thankfully we all still have hope to see loved ones in the future provided we exercise faith in the loving ransom of Christ Jesus… while that opportunity still exits.
