Islam - Essays & Comments
After almost 15 years I have decided to cut back on my commenting except
as it relates to my books.
The election of a climate change denier as President could put an end to any chance we have of saving our fragile home in space. But, why worry about a slow
burn when Doomsday fanatics on both sides of the religious divide are working hard to see us all incinerated in a nuclear fire so that
their variation of a fickle god can bring us back to life to be judged.
They may not agree on where we will all meet after death to plead for a place
in Paradise, Dabiq or Megiddo, but there seems to be a consensus among the
fanatics that our time is nearly up and let's get on with it. The only question
remaining to be answered is who will come out on top: Jesus or Muhammad?
Boreal will now become mostly an archive site where you can research more than a thousand always relevant postings. Thank you, it's been fun.
