Christmas 2012: New Year's Eve And New Year's Ending

Cambridge-trekearth
















New Year's Ending

Due to the relative popularity, pageview wise of my Christmas and New Year's Eve posts, from now on in December these will mainly be the posts I will produce. I am not a populist post writer, for the most part, obviously, but on other hand, for marketing and ministry purposes I should 'listen' to my followers and readers and I do.

Obviously, I pretty much write what I am led to write, but again I do want to be sensitive to followers and readers. Overall, I am pleased with the progress of the blogs and still plan to continue with them, Blogger allowing, for the rest of my life as ministry and as an outlet for academic Theology, Philosophy of Religion and Biblical Studies.

Although presently working in the family networking marketing business, I am always interested in potential academic teaching possibilities, but I am not interested in putting all my eggs in one economic basket, especially with the mediocre United States economy at this time and the fact that most career work in academia, publishing and media related to my degrees will be in the United States. I will use my Blogger blogs as a media to maintain my PhD skill level and also look at any church relate teaching opportunities.

This blog's pageviews are basically matching the monthly highs from 2008 and 2010 and so there is an increase from 2011. My other blog, thekingpin68/Dr. Russell Norman Murray is likely at an overall month to month high at this point but it is still at about 40% of pageview level of Satire And Theology, even with me intentionally writing more posts on that blog and shorter posts, the Satire blog is simply, even with the same message, easier to read, and more visual and humourous. 

Even so, as far as Technorati rankings, which is primarily concerned with links, the blogs are fairly equal with the Dr. Russell Norman Murray blog perhaps being slightly ahead, when one blog is ahead, more often than not. This may because there are more citations with the posts. As well, my other blog is ahead with followers.

The disappointing issue, and I am trying to comment on the blogs of others, is lack of comments. I try to limit SPAM comments to the most humourous and informative, but they do assist in boosting my comment numbers and making the blogs look professional. I realize that many Blogger bloggers or other bloggers have dropped out or suspended blogging and I have blogged on this issue previous in regard to Facebook, I do realize Facebook and related sites with a type of blogging have their benefits, but if one feels so led I would appreciate some assistance with comments.

Obviously, I accept anonymous comments and if you are already a frequent pageviewer you already show up on Statcounter/Sitemeter and so if I have not figured out who you are by now, anonymous comments probably will not assist me, much.;)

It could be worse, I could be asking for ca$h...

Thank you to readers/pageviewers, followers, links, and commenters for 2012 and for the next years.:)

My brother and I drove back to Sea-Tac International Airport Tuesday and older brother went back to Arizona to join most of the family. Border patrol was not difficult this time with either country. In November when I went to pick him up there was first of all a forty-five minute wait at the border and then I was asked to pull aside by US Customs/Homeland Security for over an hour as they looked through my car and I stood in a long line-up only to be asked the same questions again and again, and then asked to sit down more than once. I do not venture over the border much but when I go to the Excited States of Americana from the Socialist Paradise of Canada by myself I receive some kind of interview about 33% to 50% of the time.

Perhaps it is all that martial arts combined with muscles and the glasses?

Once I even left the baseball bat in the trunk...woops. They did not say anything.

I do receive some pageviews from Canadian and United States security agencies (probably employees) and so I do wonder if when someone reads work about 'New Heaven and New Earth' there could be some misunderstandings.

No revolutionary here.

However, once I am checked out I always come out a saint. After all, I do have a lot of female readers relatively, some Americans read me and toddlers love me, so I cannot be all the bad...

On a serious philosophical note, I realize that since 911, and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security the United States Border Patrol has needed to increase security and I support it. What I would like to see is increased technological advances made at border crosses, ports, train stations, and airports in order not to waste so much time. When I first picked my brother up there was the forty-five minute wait at the border. Efficiency should be increased. This was a morning on a week day in November, not a major holiday. In my mind if one wants security there should be efficiency, there was too much delay in having the security officers check the cars in the first place.

Another example comes to mind when flying to the United States back in 2009 with my disabled Mother and her metal artificial hips and joints. Clearly she is elderly (prematurely due to disability), basically deaf, and struggling and therefore very likely not a threat. A machine/computer should be able to determine that nature of her physical being without her having to take her shoes off, which is a great struggle, holding up tens of other people. As basically deaf she cannot hear the instructions well from authorities not familiar with her and I was asked to step away and could not assist the officer. In any other case with an official, such as Medical Doctor or Bank Manager I would serve as Guardian basically, but with the United States Department of Home Security, which are still basically friendly people at the airport, and their airport employee associates, they required Mom to be taken aside alone.

Again not efficient.

I read where TSA removed an adult's diaper for a pat down. With another person they patted down, the TSA officer broke the seal on the person's urostomy bag, and the person ended up soaked in urine. The TSA agent never apologized. Worst of all is when they pat down toddlers. When they allow political correctness, multiculturalism, and religious tolerance (for every religion except Christianity) and take God out of schools and government, and try to remove God from all public displays, and turn against God more and more (and let immorality in more and more, with things like abortion and gay marriage), then common sense and logic go out the window.

'Worst of all is when they pat down toddlers.'

One would think that there would be technology available to avoid such treatment. Common sense, I agree.

This Sunday @ church.

I stated I was good with toddlers. Well this one is a bit older as in just five. My good friends D&A and their son and their little princess visited our church. I had seen them Friday @ Christmas party. They stated princess was now my #1 fan. Not a shock for a few reasons...

I have several years experience with my own nieces playing the dumb monster, dumb dog, so there has been trial and error, getting the little girl to love you etc..

Where as with a nephew you just 'beat him (play fight)' to love. Be his pal, etc..

The daughter is a lot like Mommy who although not much younger than me basically sees me, and Uncle Chuckles as a 'big dumb dog' that can talk.

As well, I have additional training with church friends and their little angels, some have now moved away and I basically often ended up the dumb dog.

After church and clean up, which was my turn, and some people were nice enough to help me so I could get to lunch on time, we went to lunch and the little princess did not want to watch any movies with kissing on the pub screen. I did my usual 'mock speed kissing' in her direction that I also do with the Mother by the way. She is like a bratty little Eastern European sister at times. The little girl turned away and whispered to her Mother a message. The Mother stated: 'She wants to ask if you are looking for a girlfriend'. I stated that at 5 years old she is a teddy bear and must be at least 18'. Mother stated she will lock her away if I am still single then...;)

At the end of the lunch I of course charmed the ladies away in their family car with funny faces and kisses as they drove away laughing and smiling.

I am not concerned with it. I will sometimes publish my Technorati rankings on Facebook. My blogs are usually approximately in the top 5% in the world for blog rank. Decent.

The question on everybody lips seems to be: is the alien abduction paradigm dead? Many are ready to throw the whole meme out, bathwater, infant and all.

Satire And Theology said...

I am no expert on aliens and UFOs but I am suspicious that many of the alien events occurred post World War II and so in the Cold War era.

There have been documentaries on television that last few years is regard to post World War Two experimentation with unmanned aircraft that would perhaps defy some previously assumed or misunderstood laws of physics in regard to aviation.

I lean toward many UFO sightings that are legit, and I have seen one mysterious object in the sky, being military aircraft.

As well, in regard to aliens as creators of human beings, as aliens would be likely physical beings of matter they would be finite. One would have a vicious regress of a cause causing a cause causing a cause etc.. The only reasonable solution would be an infinite first cause, likely, based on what science understands about finite matter, which is immaterial. And based on philosophical and theological reasoning.
Yes, this philosophically lines up with a Biblical God. But does not prove the Biblical God.

A non-physical alien as human creator would still have to be infinite and eternal to avoid the vicious regress and the need for the first cause non-physical creator of all things.

As far as close encounters, again I am no expert, but some that are legit may be due to demonic events.

Those New Year's Eve celebration and fireworks photos are pretty, but I would not really want to be in a large crowd with thousands of people. I don't feel comfortable in crowds. That's why I'm glad we have TVs and Internet videos, so we can enjoy such celebrations from the comfort of our computer desk! LOL

Satire And Theology said...

Agreed on the huge crowds, Jeff, been there down that, as was discussed here on the slightly higher ranked NYE's post..

I would consider it again from a safe perspective, however.
