You believe in devil possession ?? I checked out the Exorcism of Emily Rose…That was some spooky Halloween stuff. You dig? The fact that the movie is based on a true story makes it even more eerie . It has to be one of the spookiest movies I have ever seen.

Was that chick really possessed by some kind of evil force (devils) or was she mentally ill? Did that priest actually prevent her from getting the medical help that she needed? The meds she was taking obviously were not working.
I’d love to talk about Psyche med’s. But I don’t want to get sidetracked. Ya know?
Remember the Exorcist?
That crazy movie with Linda Blair back in the day… I saw it with my parents at the drive in.. Fortunately I fell asleep. But that was one scary movie too. It’s said that people were “fainting” and vomiting in theaters from a total freak out! Wow!
Emily is more real.
She brings up lots of spiritual questions for the viewer. For somebody to watch that and not consider something being “out there” is well…unbelievable. (Pardon the irony) There seems to be unseen powers in this universe that can’t be explained.
Check it this Halloween
Yep. Halloween is fun! Watch the movie, then discuss God, devil possession and all that wacky stuff . Atheist’s welcome… Like…Totally 🙂

Well here it is spring time in Tulsa… I look outside and see the black sky and “wall clouds” as they say on TV. It’s an exciting time of year.
The fact that it happens during the TV spring sweeps makes it frustrating sometimes. You know, your trying to watch your favorite TV show but all you see on the TV is a huge radar screen. “Don’t worry, we will replay your favorite shows on Sunday afternoon” Hey, what if I got something to do on Sunday afternoon?
Oh I really don’t mind. It is necessary for all the channels to report about the potential of one hitting your house. I have come close as a child but never really experienced the full-blown tragedy of a tornado. We can put my show’s on the back burner. It’s not all that bad. Lost was the only show I watched at the time, and it’s over now. (As pitiful as it was)
So here in Oklahoma during Tornado season you can expect to see a lot of the colorful radar screen on you high def. TV. All our weather guys got it going on with the Doppler and all that. special gear that helps keep us safe.

Hey, it’s kinda fun blogging again. It’s been a few months since I posted. I’m being a good boy now so I’ll try to build this site back up again. Then I can turn around and sell it for 10 bucks so I can get a pack of cig’s and a cup of coffee. And, watch the storm come in.
Well we all got problems don’t we? A quick surf of the net or a newscast on TV will abundantly confirm this.
I like to ponder stuff you know? I like to try and “figure it all out”. And wonder what a “Higher Power” should be doing about all this. He is supposed to be all powerful right? Can’t He fix this world that we humans have totally screwed up?
Or is it up to us? Religious people tend to be just trying to hold on until they get to the great by and by. Right? I mean, I have heard it said. “This is not our home, our home is in heaven”
Jesus is coming, right? Could be today! But, what if it’s not for another 50 millennia? Hey, that’s a long time. There’s gonna be a lot of generations of people that have to try and make due until they get to heaven. Meanwhile the world get’s worse.
Big Global Problems
- Hunger and malnutrition
- Climate Change
- Financial instability
- Water and Sanitation
- Subsidies and Trade Barriers
- Communicable diseases
- Governance and corruption
What a list. those are real problems. Who is gonna fix this mess?
I have heard Bible teachers say that this “fallen world is too far gone to be fixed. It will take a complete regeneration from God to fix this. ”
Maybe. But, perhaps talking about it would help to get ideas to give the Big Guy a hand in it. Most of us have children and grandchildren right? Each of us do our part?
I’m just a middle aged hipster. I probably got a few years before I go to the pearly gates. Perhaps, there is SOMETHING I could do to make a difference here and now. You dig?
Who goes to hell? Well I suppose it’s people that deserve it huh? We all know or have heard of people that certainly deserve to go to hell for the terrible things they have done. It is, of course, assumed that Hitler is obviously in hell..
But what about that nice gay guy down the street. He is a really nice guy huh? But according to “The Bible” he is damned. And so is the new Hindu guy you met in your new humanities class at collage… He is “damned”
How do I know? The “Bible” tells me so right? See here:
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS. (Matthew 25:41)
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night… (Revelation 14:11),
Oh my… There it is. There’s gonna be a lot of folks in the fire… With my mediocrity in obedience and “Back Sliding Baptist” ways I question rather I’ll make it either… Oh I suppose I could repent on my death bed… (If I have time)
In a word: YES! Smoking is bad for you…Ask any smoker…They (we) all know this. And we are all trying to quit. That would be almost 50 million of us that know it’s bad… And yet we keep doing it… What a trip!
How do you know it’s bad? It says (in effect) that it will kill you right on the side of the pack… Smoking contains carbon monoxide… Isn’t that deadly?
Many cigarette companies offer little pamphlets in the pack or carton that offer websites and tools to help you quit… Perhaps even THEY know it’s bad for you. Go figure… Or it may be that they have been in hot water before because of lawsuits. They knew it kills people and is very addictive…And they made it more addictive. So are they responsible? I don’t know..We smokers already know it’s bad for you… Right?
Gee after typing all that I need a smoke…
