MAYBE LOGIC AND REASON ARE BETTER ALTERNATIVES AFTER ALL

"This calls for wisdom. Let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, it is the number 666." Revelation 13:18

This gets a little scary, and it probably sounds a little ignorant and superstitious, but there are times when you just have to throw logic and reason to the wind and act on instinct. Consider this. Did you know that when you work the Decider's numerology chart the number six appears in at least three important situations?

1) When you calculate the numerical value of the letters in GEORGE WALKER BUSH they reveal the self-declared Decider as a SIX on a numerology chart? According to some numerology experts the number six indicates morality, creativity, domesticity, harmony, and trust. But according to the Book of Revelations, it is the number of the Beast. And there's more.

2) When you calculate the value of the Decider's birthday (July 6, 1946) this too boils down to a six!

3) And when you calculate the value of January 20, 2001, the date of W's Inaugural address, this too amounts to a bone chilling six!

Do the math! On a standard numerology chart. the letters in the English alphabet have the following values: A, J, and S =1; B, K, and T = 2; C, L, and U = 3; D, M, and V = 4; E, N, and W = 5; F, O, and X = 6; G, P, and W = 7; H, Q, and Z = 8; and I and R = 9.

The name GEORGE WALKER BUSH adds up like this:

7+5+6+9+7+5+5+1+3+2+5+9+2+3+1+8 = 78; 7+8 = 15; 1+5 = 6! That's right! George Bush is a Six!

Now let's look at the dates The months of the year have the following numerical values: January and October = 1; February and November = 2; March and December = 3; April + 4, May = 5, June = 6; July =7; August = 8 and September = 9.

This is the Decider's birthday:

7+ 6+1+9+4+6 = 33; 3=3 = 6. Another Six.

And this it the date of his first Inaugural address

1+2+0+2+0+0+1 = 6. Yet another Six!

And I still can't get over the fact that the basic numbers in FOX are (GULP) 666, although one might argue that adding the three sixes together will create 18 which breaks down to nine, but still... The FOX and those three sixes looks a little...suspicious.

And let's not forget what the Bible says about the forces of evil.

"For Such are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ and no wonder for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is not strange if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness." 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.

Does this not sound like the insane rantings of the so called Christian Right? The Bible is filled with passages about helping the poor, feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless. It warns us about the dangers of greed and avarice, of acquiring too much wealth. But what does the right wing embrace? Greed, tax cuts for the wealthy, and an obsessive worship of wealth and power.

The Bible issues repeated warnings against lies and dishonesty. But we have elected (some might say selected) a majority political party which has turned lying and corruption into highly polished art forms. Can you say Delay, Abramoff, and Cunningham?

But then again, it might just be that all of this is a coincidence and that I selected the data to suit a given agenda. Kind of like what the Christian Right has been doing to the Holy Bible and basic Christian theology on a regular basis.

Hmmmmm. Come to think of it, logic and reason may well be better alternatives after all.

Yes, logic is better, but logic won't help the puma challenge the lion as king of the jungle.
