“On any subject, especially in religious studies, there are a thousand books in the library. Of these, only a hundred are still worth reading at all, and ten of them are the best. One of those is the best of all, and in it one chapter will summarize the essential information; given that, you can keep up with current research. The real task of a graduate mentor is to tell you how to find that chapter, because life is too short to waste time on those other 990 books.”

xmas day walk-phoenix indian school park

Posted by richard on April 11th, 2014

started entry Tuesday – 12/25/12

 

it reminds me that history, at least the history written in public parks and on brass plaques is written by the winners of cultural battles.

the informational pieces on the circular walk around the remaining 3 big buildings of the phoenix indian school park is no exception.

In 2012, an estimated 356,000 mentally ill inmates were being held in state prison, compared to just 35,000 in state-run psychiatric hospitals. In other words, the number of mentally ill people in prisons is ten times that of mentally ill in state-run psychiatric hospitals.

re: “Most of it said the same stuff”…. how to use a google search to determine if things are likely true or not? when lots of places use the same words then you should suspect a single point origin for that information followed by a wide distribution. look at “stock tips” for a very good example. it is when the same information is being found that is different in wording and structure that indicates more reliable information oftentimes. because it has multiple sources. look at the snopes article about the nursery rhyme. it’s method is to find variants both through time and in wording. why? in the same way at textual criticism organizes the new testament witnesses into families, they are looking for probable points of origin for the words. the point? you can say the same stuff exactly and in different ways, those different ways often point to a greater reliability that in the identical/copied way.

http://www.salon.com/2014/04/03/creationists_endure_rough_few_weeks_why_the_flat_earth_crowd_is_in_trouble/

quote:
It’s obvious why creationists would not want to be associated with flat-earthers, but it’s not at all obvious why we should let them get away with it, given how similar their arguments, assumptions and purposes are. In discussing the internal divisions of Bible science, Shadewald wrote:

“Though flat-earthism is as well-supported scripturally and scientifically as creationism, the creationists plainly do not want to be associated with flat-earthers….

“[Y]oung-earth creationism closely resembles the flat-earth movement. In fact, young-earth creationism, geocentrism, and flat-earthism are respectively the liberal, moderate, and conservative branches of the Bible-science tree. The intense hostility expressed by the scientific creationists toward the flat-earthers does not extend to modern geocentrists, who hover on the edge of respectability among creationists. Indeed, though the Bible is, from Genesis to Revelation, a flat-earth book, the geocentrists have combined forces with liberal creationists to cast the flat-earthers into outer darkness.”

so instead of funding child care and employment services or homeless help we pay for CPS, police and jails. instead of a hand up our society offers a ball and chain. why is it so much easier to pay for force and violence then for love, concern and help?

bad karma

Posted by rmwjr on March 6th, 2014

anthony roberts 520-270-6238, he lives in catalina, pima co. arizona. i believe on n Lago Del Oro Pkwy.

his girlfriends name is tracey fox, the phone is in her name, i suspect because of this review he will change his phone number for he emailed me that he had found it. he is undoubtedly doing the same thing to other people as he did to us. sad, he is more than capable of making a good living, it is a shame he’d rather steal than work well and honestly being content with his wages.

we hired him to clean out and repair our retirement mobile home in picture rocks.
in dec he repaired the garage roof, put tin we bought on it, then he “fixed” the mobile roof. then he told us he could remove the trash and make it livable, that was 1st week of jan…..

we paid him half for materials then 5 weeks later he insisted we pay the rest so he could get a dump trailer in new mexico for a gonga of a price.

and he stopped working and disappeared, his girlfriend tracy even showed up one day looking for him, less than half way through the project. first he told us he was at disneyland, then that his mom had a stroke in SLC and a week later that she had died. now we’re nearly at the end of feb, when he told us it would be livable. but what we have is: a double door we supplied was attached with just a few fasteners, it took us 2 weekends to get it installed right. the drywall was not completed in the house-not taped or textured, he claimed to be an expert at drywall. the garage had only the ceiling done. it’s a long way from being livable which is what he promised to do for the money. because of my arthritis it will literally take me a year to complete a job we already paid for. without any savings to buy materials.

we are out our carefully saved retirement money that was saved literally a dollar at a time as we raised 6 kids. and we still have to fix up the mobile before my wife can retire. so all our hopes and dreams have been stolen along with our money.

do not hire this man. he is a liar and a thief.

for example,

he told us the trailer he was using to haul out trash he bought for $12k. it was actually borrowed from his neighbor.

he used white roof coating to seal the rolled roofing. because WE had already bought it. they make rolled roofing adhesive, we had to redo and paint the roof so it won’t leak, over $450 for paint we expected him to buy with our money. because the first rain every room on the west side leaked and the edge blew up because it had not been properly glued. two more weekends of work for us, that we had already paid for.

we had 3 windows to replace.  he never bought them. now we have to board them up until we can save enough to get used windows.

he said he was going to fix the floor joists before replacing the damaged areas of the floor. it took us 2 days to remove his floor and put in new pillars to fix the sag in two rooms. things any good craftsman would have done.

warning signs:

in retrospect we should have seen.

he didn’t get along with his workers. a steady stream of new people were at the house working.

he never did give us receipts for what he had bought with the first half of the money. kept saying he would tomorrow, that they were in his wife’s truck. we should have stopped right there.

we should have asked for a roc number. required if work exceeds $1000, something we didn’t know then. it is your only protection from dishonest people in the construction trade, use it, ask for it, don’t be penny wise and pound foolish as we were.

anyhow, if you googled here with his name or phone number, don’t deal with him. he has advertised in the past the he does car mechanics work as well as home repairs. please learn from my error in judgement. we are out our lifetime savings and no way of ever making that money back because i foolishly trusted this man…..if you need a photo of him to be sure you are dealing with the same person please email me.

we contacted a lawyer via those first 30 min free offers, he said we could report the fraud to the police but it’s unlikely without a written contract or him having an ROC number that we can collect our stolen savings from him. but we are worried that we are just one of many of his victims, so i am writing up my experiences dealing with him here.

as Calvin said, there is enough justice in this world that we know what justice is, but the larger amount is left unpunished leading us to believe a greater judgement is coming. i sincerely hope he was right.

gay laws

Posted by rmwjr on February 27th, 2014

i know gay marriage is a hot button issue. it’s a big deal here with gov brewer’s veto of the discrimination bill. i’m interested in the parallels between gay marriage and miscegenation laws. they are defended the same way, with the same passion, by the same cultural communities.

what i see is a visceral dislike of specific groups followed by a justification of this using tools at hand.
