About this blog

Just some things that leak out of my head! I live in the desert, some people accuse me of wisdom, so a desert sage seemed a witty title.

It's just a dream - but it made me think!

I just woke up from a dream. You might be tempted to think this is a literary device, but I assure you that this is a true story, the dream was real. I dream a lot, perhaps we all do, but what makes the difference, is whether we remember the dream. Most of my dreams either involve things related to my real life, such as people I know, places I have been, or things which have happened. My next most common kind of dreams is usually some unfolding of events. They are more movie-like, having sc

Hamburgers and the Antichrist

How much water, does it take, to make a cheeseburger? It takes 68 gallon of water for the bun. It takes water to grow wheat for the flour. One slice of tomato, 3 gallons. Slice of lettuce, 1.5 gallons. Slice of cheese, 56 gallons. Water to grow the feed that feeds the cow that makes the milk, that gets turned into cheese. That patty of hamburger? 616 gallons. Water grow the feed for the beef steer, as well as for the animal itself. That is 744.5 gallons of water, an

Knowing if we are marriage ready

Recently a young man asked me how one knows when one is mature enough for marriage. I responded to him, with some thoughts that went beyond his specific question. I am about to include my reply here. I should add though that some of these principles are for men and women both, and can also be considered in other aspect of life in addition to marriage. Also, I would like to add, that before getting married, I think it is wise (in terms of human wisdom, not Biblical revelation) for people to

Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme?

June 1st, 2014 Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? I think I originally posted this as a regular post. Later, the worthy news bot published it. However, it definetly qualifies as one of my rants, so I am republishing it in my blog, Also, if you read it, and want to reply, you might want to do so in the regular part of the forum, where some have already replied. Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? Reading a lot of forum comments, I see that when Rick Perry referred to Socia

Lessons from the McDonalds Hot Coffee Law Suit

The McDonalds Hot Coffee Lawsuit - What You Didn't Hear Published May 6th, 2008   Probably at some point, you have heard of the woman who spilled hot coffee in her lap, and sued McDonald’s for millions. What you usually hear, is how this woman drove into the drive-thru at McDonald’s and bought hot coffee, that she then stuck between her legs. Because it was a Styrofoam cup with a slip on slid, the coffee spilled in her lap. Then you hear that that this lady was awarded nearly 3 millio

Don't Jump to Conclusions !

So what is all of the above about? Hopefully, you took a little time to look it over, and to consider it. Given enough time (about a minute), it should have changed a little from when you first looked at it. At the very top, is what appears to be a phrase, with  the letters partially obscured. Most people who look at that, I assume will make a conclusion of what the phrase says. However, since there is some obscurity, not total revelation, it is possible to assume something that is not true

How I Study the Bible

Originally published September 28th, 2008 In as much as several of you lately, and many over the years have asked how I go about Bible Study and why I think my approach is a good one, I have decided to blog on that topic.First off, I do three different types of Bible studies. Expository, topical, and word studies.As I define the terms, an expository study is one were I select a passage, a chapter, a whole book, or some other contiguous grouping of words from the Bible, and then go verse by

Should everyone vote?

Should everyone vote? Going out on a limb here, but, I have always been of the (somewhat unpopular) opinion, that not everyone should vote. Some think it is the right of every adult, U.S. citizen. Some think it is an obligation of every adult, U.S. Citizen. True rights and true obligations, come from God, not from documents written by governments made of men. However, dispensing with this technical opinion of mine, I am saying that I do not believe that being an adult, U.S. citizen, shou

5 Minute Theology

Five Minute Theology (updated from May 8, 2015) I recently purchased a small book entitled "Concise Theology - A Guide to Historic Christian Beliefs" by J.I. Packer. I think the book is excellent, and it is what is describes itself as. Each topic in the book is only a page, or a page and a half, so it is truly concise. The topics also cite scripture verse addresses to support the conclusions. The book is also easy to understand for most people I think, assuming that they have normal capacit

Is the Law (Old Testament) applicable to Christians?

Is the Old Testament for today - one opinion Posted by Omegaman 2.0 on the January 15th, 2007   I got tired of seeing my last blog, as the latest blog, so I did another to bump my position. I came in at the tail end of a conversation in chat one night, not long ago, it was close to venomous between a few, or at least in seemed to me to be so. As near as I could figure out, it began on a topic like war or the death penalty, or something along those lines. Those topics are still

Self Promotion - Table of Contents

In as much as I enjoy writing from time to time, I do so in a blog here. In as much as my ego demands that I assume a few other might enjoy or benefit from what I write, I have made a table of contents of my blog entries. Also, at the bottom, I added a link to diagrams and charts. Occasionally, they are helpfull was to illustrate beliefs, doctrans and other things, so that is a place to store them and find them when I need them, you can look and see too if you like. You might disagree with them
