Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
Four Types of God
Well, the Bacon-Eating Atheist Jew buttoned this one down. Others have cited it, and I’m sure others have cited it first. But his link seems to be the most substantial one, and his own thoughts are the most original ones.
Of course, anybody who’s been watching the media for any length of time at all, knows that they have their own agenda about things and it just stands to reason that they do — they’re people. And, it’s a settled pattern by now, that when “most” people agree with the media’s agenda, we’ll hear about that over and over again. George Bush is an idiot, George Bush is an idiot, George Bush is an idiot. Iraq was a mistake, Iraq was a mistake, Iraq was a mistake. Three out of four Americans agree on this, 62% of us agree on that, etc. Ever wonder what the media does when their agenda is contrary to the views of most Americans?
The God thing is a great example. It turns out over 91% of us agree there is a God…what is the media to do? They divide and conquer.
Just keep in mind how incredibly selective the media is when it comes to this dividing and conquering…like for example, I’m sure you’ll be waiting awhile before you see this. Most Americans agree Saddam Hussein was not a threat to us, but in what kind of harmless Saddam Hussein do most Americans believe? Or this…Most Americans think we did the wrong thing with Iraq, but what do they think we should have done? No, we’ll just work on God for right now thankyewverymuch.
You know, I can’t guarantee that everyone hostile to the concept of God, wants to run the world, has malicious intent in this ambition, and wants to be accountable to no one. But I can guarantee you that everyone who wants to run the world with malicious intent and desires accountability to no one…is going to be hostile to the concept of God. So speaking for myself, I’m taking this with a grain of salt. But that’s just me.
