AI is a wonderful tool. The problem is what you do with that tool. We cannot trust companies to stop disinformation nor trust them with our data. It stands that we cannot trust them with their use of AI. There was hope that the World Wide Web would help bring humanity together. We’ve seen how that has gone. The same is true for AI. Companies want as much money as possible so if that means getting rid of workers to make even more that’s what’s going to happen.

To and fro

We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine, by people’s trickery, by their craftiness in deceitful scheming.

Ephesians 4:14 (NRSVCE)

If He came now.

If Jesus came now as he did 2000 years ago the liberals would crucify him for not being woke enough and the Republicans would crucify him for not being conservatives enough.


Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2 (NRSVCE)


(This isn’t about medically diagnosed depression or other psychological issues. Although, it could be for some. Seek professional help.)

Are people sad or so addicted to trying to be happy or fear of sadness that they don’t know it’s OK to be sad? And that there can be a happiness in being sad. There’s such an addiction to being happy it’s sickening in itself. Hearing people talk about topics of their life, like relationships, there’s usually the friend that says “Yes, but are you happy?”. As if the answer to that makes it OK that your life is a train wreck morally. Or that he only hits you once a week which is less than the last guy.


Why should I interrupt my education by going to school?

Marshall McLuhan

Dear diary,

New record high. Reach 137F (58C) today. Cried a lot, missing my family. Wondering why they are gone. About 2 billion died in the last 3 years. So thirsty. So tired. I want to be with them. I love them.

Misguided prophets

If you claim the world will end tomorrow, and make that claim every day, sooner or later you will be right. Why would anyone want to live a life like that?

Preparing for a disaster by having extra food, water, medical supplies, etc. is a great idea. Whether there is a natural disaster, power outage, or other calamity, it’s great to be prepared. Not many people can afford extreme prepping where you plan for every disaster, which really isn’t realistic or possible.

The issue is the doomsday prepper prophets. The one’s who post a video or blog post every week or more and rant about how they “see the signs” of what’s coming next. And what’s coming next has a broad range from financial disaster, weather prediction, or war. These events are all going to happen within a month or less. You might watch the video and become afraid (or annoyed). Then you notice that the said prediction was posted two months ago. Of course, it didn’t come true.

Then there are the religious preppers. They prep for a disaster and are ready to fight off anyone that comes near them. They spread fear about how you will lose your life if you don’t prep, you’re going to be one of the first to die. Either they believe in God or they don’t. What are they so afraid of?

People talk as if these events never happened before. Maybe not on a larger scale but that would be expected since there are more people on the planet and they are interdependent.

Every generation thinks theirs is the last.
