Trib Updates

This is a weekly series that will include a brief summary of the latest articles that have been published on The Tribulation Times Herald-Exhorter.  Hopefully, this will encourage you to go check out some truly outstanding articles that have been published by a number of truly outstanding authors.  Moreover, I hope this will also encourage you to want to become a contributing member/author, as well.  The “Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!” site explanation near the top of the side-bar should answer many of your questions.  Yes, this series also included an “SOS! (Spam On Saturdays)”  segment before, but it just wasn’t working for me.  Therefore, that will be replaced by a republishing of one of the Trib articles.

[Why We Fight] is from Lavender Darwin with a video and some salient points.

[11:11] has some rather spooky observations from Lavender.

[Argumentum Ad-Populum] has Lavender justifying his practice of arguing with fence-posts.

[Outcry in China over hit-and-run toddler left in the street] has Lavender providing a link to a news story that is beyond shocking.

[WDW Pirates of the Caribbean – Ruined with the Johnny Depp Robot…] has Lavender trying to prove (again) that he really was a fun-loving child.

[Oh How I Love Football] gives further proof that there is a good reason why vasectomies should terrify Lavender.

[George Michael – Love is a Losing Game] provides evidence of what Lavender does when manly men watch football.

[Things Charles Darwin Missed, or, Why I am Not a Darwinist – Part #8: “Darwin Awards”] shows where Lavender likes to visit while listening to George Michael songs.

[The Flu Shot and the Grim Reaper] is one of the few pieces by Lavender that I can’t find anything to pick on.

[When it’s time for Lavender Darwin to die…] is not another article by Lavender Darwin that I can’t find anything to pick on.

[Classless Acts] has me bemoaning the acceptance of street-punk behavior by football players and coaches, and Lavender not getting it (still).

[Christians and Halloween (and Pastors who just shrug their shoulders)] is another Lavender rant, and since he is probably serious about this one, I won’t smart-off anything.

A little over a week ago, I published a short review (of sorts) of [Zeitgeist: The Movie (2007)].  Since [Zeitgeist: Addendum (2008)] and [Zeitgeist: Moving Forward (2011)] are basically just regurgitations of what was addressed in the first one of the series, this review will be even shorter.

Well, it will actually have about the same word-count, but considering that it will be covering two movies instead of just one, it is arguable that it will be even shorter.  Don’t believe me?  Okay, let’s do the math.  Let’s see…divide pi (π) by the cube root of x (³√x) times…  Shoot, my trusty old solar-powered Casio calculator just made an awful sound and died.  So, you’ll just have to remove your shoes and socks to complete the computations on your own.

Anyway, there were some additional things to both movies that make them worth listening to the rehashing of the old points.  In Addendum, some fairly deep economics is discussed, and in Moving Forward, some ways to save the human race from extinction are proposed.

I found it interesting that in Moving Forward an effort was made to head-off questions about Marxism being the basis for the movies.  For by claiming to not have any political leanings means that it is not—right?

This is actually a shame to me.  For from what I understand about pure Marxism, it would promote a paradise on earth if implemented properly.  Ah, but with us being who we naturally are, the only thing that can be counted on is more of the same miseries—regardless of what form they may take.

This is, of course, vehemently denied in the movies.  For they promote the idea that we are all basically good at heart, and that it is because of having to fight for survival because of religion and politics that life in this world is not all that it could be.  In fact, they even go so far as to claim there would no longer be any need for laws (not to mention law enforcement!) if things are done right.

Nonetheless, the inhabitants of this world (at the time) will see some of the things proposed in the movies implemented before it is all over with.  For the antichrist will come to power on the promise of peace and prosperity for all, and for the first three and a half years of his global rein, it will appear to happen.  Hey, we’re talking about clean air and water, abundant food supplies, the cure of most (if not all) diseases and love for one another abounding everywhere.

It will be a completely different story the last three and a half years, however.  You just wait and see (if you can stay alive for another 144 years or so).

In the meantime, watch (or at least listen to) these movies.  The parts about capitalistic greed hits particularly hard for me after seeing our cable TV bill go up by around 50% with few other options being available to us at this time.  It is for this reason that this is the first article by me here in over a week.  I’ll tell you all about later on.
