    The chief trouble with our society I say is that it does not spend enough time delving into the antonyms of bullshit. It is easy to point out but this song speaks to the actual challenge of the antonym - our actions speak louder than our protestations about BS.

    I also love to write. One of my personal favorite writing is my personal journals. They are great for putting my mind at ease when I am really excited and need to stop brainstorming.
    I have been writing in journals for almost 20 years and try to keep at it at least once a week. I have already completed four journals. They go into detail of my personal feelings, goals during each time of my life, and trials I had to overcome. My objection is for them to be pass to my children when I am older. I want my kids and grandchildren to know the type of people my wife and I were when we are gone. They may learn more from these stories of my life better just from Psalms and Proverbs because I am family. They will notice that I packed a lot of scripture in there for them to read. I pray they pass them down through the generations, like we are doing with my great-grandfathers.
    For now, the books are mine and they are fun to read once and awhile. Some of the days and events, I don't even remember. I am very glad I wrote them done. The dullest pen is better than the greatest memory.

    #15 ...which means, you are related to someone who has sinned. Again, some societies punish relative 3 pedigrees up and down. Which somewhere in the Corinthians it states you get to go to Satan, the advisory, and spend some time in slavery. Which is why, I suppose, one of the reasons why we can't end slavery today. Besides the fact it is a revenue pipeline and employs lots of people world wide. So, it's a cycle. People wont stop committing crimes or being imprisoned for thinking/speaking off the "proverbial" plantation [political dissidents] and it doesn't matter which dogma camp because they are all intertwined.

    #15 Everlasting life in physical only occurs if someone has a child. Which is the original meaning of marriage. We fell off course when we deviated and made marriage a civil contract between the two parents and not the parents and the offspring. Regardless, 'til death we all do part from this physical realm. Even if we divorce our partners or distance ourselves from our relatives does not mean we are not married to them via DNA or the influence they had on us.

    The risk in sinning is obvious. Self destructing via medicating is something you opt into or something you can be subjected to. Which is why the US Constitution has a clause the is breached called Corruption of Blood. Also,. If you choose not be heterosexual or if you choose to castrate yourself or abort your future selves is you risk ending your line.

    The risk in being a saint is that in some places they do Corruption of Blood in other forms by arresting and imprisoning your relatives 3 pedigrees up or down. They are gearing up for that in the US, we know this by the hearings held regarding the banking of DNA and the testimony given about "3 pedigrees up or down".

    As far as the scripture and the VERY WORD OF GOD, it is very specific about what that word of God is. It is not the scripture. So read again until you find it.

    The trouble with picking and choosing is that people will always try to manipulate old army field manuals without considering their space in time. The Bible states that it was built on precepts upon precepts which is why they are having issues getting the masses to trust them.

    Incidentally, Deut. 24/7 is pretty clear about slavery and everyone who does not want to be slave calls themselves Israelite and everyone who wants to be a master calls themselves Israelite. Yet, do we really have a way to prove who is? Well, yes, if you go by the Bible, it states that all blood was mixed in 500BC.

    Original sin refers to the fact that we are all related somewhere in our ancestry

    Since you want to mix Scripture with street vernacular @Timothy Welsh, my point is, DUDE, that both salvation and original sin began as a leap of faith, meaning they're no different in that respect. To say that eternal life is a "free gift" is a leap of faith. Outside of reciting scripture, can you prove it is, in fact, FREE or even real? Do you have proof of that? If you can't back it up without scripture, that's theoretical not proof. Saying my theology is appalling suggests that what I believe is appalling. In terms of the original premise of my article, since all you're doing is reciting scripture, maybe you don't believe in writing what doesn't exist. If you don't, why criticize those who do? The Bible was something very new at one point. Doesn't that prove my point?#13

    Interesting perspective but the theology is appalling... you wrote Salvation is no different than original sin. Uhhh Yes it is Salvation is of the Lord. Just read the bible. you then state ' you can't be a saint or sinner without risking something." you cannot mix works with grace. Romans 6:23 says eternal life is a free gift so sinners risk nothing Jesus risked it all by dying on the cross. Saints pursue Christ in discipleship to receive rewards in the afterlife. 1 Cor 3 :13-15 brings this out in the context. If you cannot back it up with scripture dude dont put in print.

    Yes, Stanwyck did in a western series called The Big Valley. I remember that, but don't remember her in The Thorn Birds oo The Colby's. Great variety to her work and, supposedly, a very nice person (not common when you think of actresses like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Olivia de Havilland, her contemporaries).

    #10 To me, beauty encompasses all that. Not just looks. She managed her movie career very well and was one of the few who made the transition to TV. I think Barbara Stanwyck did as well, but don't quote me on that.

    #3 Thanks, @Ian Weinberg. Still haven't gotten used to a bank account in the red (even after 40 years) but I will some day. Thanks for reading. Over dinner conversation, when someone says, "Who actually reads you, Robert?" I'd like to throw back, "Well, I get the odd neurosurgeon." I used to say "groupie" but nobody believed it.

    Thanks @Paul Walters. Yes, very few brave clients these days. I want to write something about how Volkswagen and Apple have degenerated into appalling advertising. What a shame after so many years of brilliant stuff. The bravery goes, so does the advertising.#1

    Thanks for an inspirational piece @Robert Cormack As a seasoned maverick I can say with some conviction that going against the grain is only fearful at the beginning. Thereafter it comes a lot easier. It's like landing in the red with your bank account - after a while it becomes a way of life ...

    Thanks for the good advice and inspiration, Robert. Also, kudos on your book. You know that saying, "No risk, no reward." If someone has proverbial "thin skin" then writing online and off probably isn't for them. BEE brave. BEE bold. BEE buzzing!

    @Robert Cormack Iโ€™m not funny,โ€ Lucille Ball once said. โ€œWhat I am is brave.โ€ How absolutely true. As an Ad guy Robert you would know only too well that great commercials are only made when you have a very brave client! So often ground breaking writing is simply stifled by fear. Great post, thank you

    #18 @Phillip Hubbell ahh...the mystery of the tryptych [sic]; I think that Francis Bacon (not the the natural philosopher --although he too may have made a similar metaphysical observation regarding the empirical/scientific method... but the post WWI artist --"Lost Generation Painter") said something along those lines --it may have been a different rationale; but it had to do with the fact that some of them started out as "stand alone" works...but then --once finished ...they couldn't stay that way...the oft repeated theme of philosophers and writers...a "three car train" in which yesterday, today, and tomorrow are sort of "in the same room" and the the whole thing is moving as a single unit...I found an interesting link about him at the Tate Gallery/Museum: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/francis-bacon-682

    #17 @Gerald Hecht a funny thing...since I started out to write a single book, the titles ended up being backwards from how I would have done it had I wrote all of them before giving them titles. Standing Still should have been the first one and God's Motive the last one. Infinity Squared would still be in the middle but that's the nature of trilogies.

    #15 @Phillip Hubbell yeah, it's more difficult than one might think...the existing scenarios from the world's largest religions make it all seem so obvious...
    ...but maybe that's why the number of religions that have scaled up and out to such a tremendous magnitude...ain't all that many...AND, there is also some overlap between a few of of them!

    Having created a religion myself, I commiserate with the effort to describe the death of the protagonist. Since my guy dies near the beginning and finds himself in the afterlife, I believe I came up with a pretty good process for getting from here to there. It even lent itself from naming book 3 โ€œStanding Still.โ€ Good luck.

    #3 @Jim Murray an interactive performance art "bible"...that would be cool ...like that theater troupe in the 60's that was always getting arrested...originally, I was thinking of many characters (cast of thousands) like the Abrahamic bibles...but --really, that's not really necessary, I suppose.
    I think that the reason the Abrahamic religions have so many...was just to "cover all possible ways of messing up"...if you start at Adam...by the time you get to Jacob's 12 kids; you already have a crowded stage, a shipwrecked ark, pillars of salt, enraged offspring of Esau...3 or 4 enslavements...and Moses is still just an infant abandoned by his mom --a lowly refugee/immigrant "dreamer" --in a picnic basket...in a state of complete da' nile.

    I think your main characters should, sit face to face inside a long steel tube and read the Conmysticism bible (or brochure) to each other. The natural vibrating frequencies of their voices in the tube will cause their eyes to bulge their noses to bleed and, eventually, their heads to explode. It will be messy but effective. All you need is a real pithy Conmystical for them to go out on. It also has the advantage of working on the audio and visual levels. Talk about surreal.
