Marginalizing The Movement That Can Save America

The GOP’s Un-Candidates

mtrmnyWe shouldn’t be talking about 2016. It’s 2014 and there are obviously important mid-term elections in November.

What is the Actual Basis on which Scientists and their Acolytes declare God Dead?

Nietzsche predicted that the ‘generation that is now coming up’, regrettably, this generation, ‘from cruelty against [itself]’, would ‘sacrifice God himself’, and ‘worship the stone, stupidity, gravity, fate, and nothing.’

Nietzsche was right about sacrificing God, but could not have foreseen that this would lead not just to worshiping ‘the stone, stupidity, gravity, fate and [...]
