Up to now I’ve never shared my personal feelings on my blog. That may be partly because I’m in touch with who I really am, and what I’m really like, and how un-like the majority of people I am, and so how few people can tolerate me! As my brother once said to me so succinctly, “You’re weird!”.

He didn’t realize it, but that was one of the nicest things anyone’s ever said to me. Weirdness has its benefits. Give me “weird” any time…

I remarked to someone the other day on the importance of talking to yourself. In open conversation we all make fun of the practice, but I suspect the reality is that a good many or most of us do it. After all, sometimes it’s the only way to have an intelligent conversation, right? So I said to this person, who I won’t name, that by talking to ourselves we stay in contact with who we really are. We reconcile ourselves to an otherwise hostile world. We organize our thoughts and make them more solid in our consciousness. We pragmatically consider both or all sides of the issues at hand (if we have any sense), and we provide friendship for ourselves which may not otherwise be available. Who can we trust if we can’t trust ourselves?

We may be afraid of being considered to be slightly insane if others see us talking to ourselves, and that’s understandable, because we all feel that those who do so with no self-consciousness at all may well be unhinged in some way. But surely we all have thought-conversations with ourselves, inside our minds, don’t we? It’s impossible not to (I think). And we don’t consider ourselves to be mad for that. So what’s the harm, now and then, with a little one-on-one conversation, when nobody else is around? We talk to our pets, we talk to the television, we talk to the driver in front of us: why not talk to our best friends-ourselves?

Looking at my view count lately, I may well be talking to myself now…

Ah, but someone else is always around-God. Statements like that one make the atheist and the unbeliever become certain that I and others like me are not playing with a full deck. They forget all the many benefits believers with great minds have given the world-men like Pascal, Francis Bacon, Kepler, Newton, Boyle, Tolkein, C.S Lewis and countless others.

God hears us. In fact, he knows our thoughts, and hears all our words. Herein is one of the potentially huge benefits of talking to ourselves, whether in our minds or out loud. When we do it within the knowledge and control of God’s spirit, and while also talking to our God, we can talk ourselves into a right way of thinking:

…be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2).

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits (Psalm 103:1-2).

GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS

Some people believe that there’s a “global consciousness”. Humanity, they think, is all coming together in one giant Mind of peace, love and harmony.

Well, if you want a glimpse of it, spend fifteen minutes within the swirling cesspool of human thought known as “Facebook”…

I scanned the weather forecasts a couple of weekends ago in desperation, praying that the below-freezing winds passing straight through my body as I worked outside would soon abate…

Sure enough, temperatures, said the official forecasts, were going to rise daily over the next week until pleasantly mild. However, the cold remained locked in throughout the week. The forecast was wrong. I know I’m not the only one to ask this, but how can “experts” predict what our climate will like be in thirty years, if they can’t always predict the weather correctly for the next few days?

Climate change? Hasn’t the climate always “changed”? Isn’t that the history of earth? Why do I read about ice ages? Why do I read about fossilized palm leaves and camel and rhino remains in northern latitudes, where there is now permafrost and polar bears? Why were there farms in Greenland a thousand years ago where there is now ice, if climate change and global warming are brought on by human industry? And why have the dire predictions of our time made a couple of decades ago come to nothing? Why did warnings of “global warming” morph into “climate change”?

More to the point, why did the previous US administration want to cede large amounts of money and sovereignty to international organizations: to “global governance”?

I’ve recently observed several more challenges to the hysteria still being encouraged in many circles. In the first of three examples, 49 former NASA scientists dispute man-made climate change. Follow this link to the details:

Secondly, I read Roy Spencer’s recent book* in which he reviews Al Gore’s sequel movie “Truth to Power”. Among Spencer’s accomplishments is his work as a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA. He was principal observer on missions to observe the Earth from the Space-Shuttle. Spencer, in his conclusions, writes:

Most if not all of the weather events Al Gore presents…occur naturally anyway, and we have good evidence that they have happened in the past…

…none of it has evidence that humans are making it worse…

In some cases, Gore’s claims…can be shown to be outright false.

Finally, a physics professor who taught at Columbia and Princeton expresses in this video his understanding that it’s impossible to predict the climate years in advance:

From the far left what most of us know to be reality seems to be at the far right of the spectrum…

…or perhaps they know it’s not. Perhaps they just want to shape your view of things.
