    "New Song for the New Age"

    And many Andean Catholics would agree with you. From what very little I know of Pachamama, she seems more like Asherah, but inasmuch as she and the BVM have both been called "Queen of Heaven," maybe I am attempting to split a hair which still shares the same root. I don't think he or most...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    So much here to which to follow up and to respond to! In the meantime, while we still haven't quite tracked down the definitive New New Song for the Newer New Age, just released today is the New New Song for the Older New Age. For background, YouTuber Taylor Marshall gained mainstream media...

    Coronavirus epidemic news

    Speaking only for my own anecdotal case, I've never assumed that accurate information was available, and I have assumed there is an ulterior (profit) motive. I've tried to maintain a standard of "more informed than the average person," and then just go with whatever settles my gut. When I got...

    Coronavirus epidemic news

    I've been following this gentleman's updates on pandemic news. He's no expert (maybe a good thing, in this case), but he certainly seems to know more than I do (always good), and definitely has some level of skepticism (usually a good thing). I've been meaning to post something of his for a...

    QAnon and John-John

    Oh how deep the conspiracy goes! Good job, Seeker! (if that even is your name :: raised eye brow :: ) Oh, Jerry, you know how that "reasonable talk" makes makes my heart melt! <3

    "New Song for the New Age"

    When Cyberspace Jesus... ... converges with the Digital Messiah... ... I think that's when we'll see the newer New Song. In the meantime, I found this webinar in a few weeks, for anyone else curious

    QAnon and John-John

    First of all, I have to say that I love Network. I think I last saw it all the way through about ten years ago, showing it to a group of anarchist friends. Already at the time, it had been profoundly predictive of the future of media. Now, I think we may have surpassed even the parts considered...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    As good a reasoning for your axiom as any, and certainly better - and more deliberately recognized - than most! The mind of an atheist (witting, or otherwise - and even if only momentarily), obviously! The mind of an atheist could even be said to have a supergodly view. How else could it even...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    ... if they even exist (as we perceive them). It seems to me that you're still beginning with a god's eye view of reality as axiomatic, and then placing us inside that. What I'm saying is that we are the ghost in the machine (in the reality [if it exists]). Our (ghost) face is permanently...

    QAnon and John-John

    So far, I've only gotten to the art where he wasn't killed. Everything up to that point had me nodding along, and then I was like, "what???" ... which isn't to say that I disagree, I will just have to return to finish reading. In the meantime (perhaps "in my current ignorance") my prejudice is...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    Reboots have never been hotter. But would the new #6 have two moms, like Emma, or be more like an unironic American Dad? Hmmm... Well, first: which meaning of "traditional Catholicism," and which of its epistemologies? But I'm conditionally inclined to agree - or maybe just conditioned to...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    Although I'm sure I've said too much already, I will provide some context, for however it may enhance your viewing pleasure... IIRC, Mr. McGoohan had just wrapped up a popular spy-themed show called Danger Man in which he played a Bond-esque character. He was feeling a bit typecast, and...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    Of course, it's not my place to judge. I don't know enough about his day to day routine to know if he prays daily, attends Mass weekly, and receives reconciliation and communion as prescribed, etc. He tends to do a not insignificant amount of humor that I find belittling - even if to people I...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    Some would wonder what is the difference, but not this Anarcho-Catholic Internationalist, of course. And if I may be forgiven for giving a literal answer to a rhetorical question: speaking for myself, I found the site because this was the place where conversations were happening that I thought...

    "New Song for the New Age"

    Yes, of course. But isn't that the mission (however unstated) of every organization? I don't think we would expect that Postflaviana was created to give total domination over the planet to those infidels (infidel to the PF truths, that is) and eliminate all Postflavians. The stated mission of...
