If Life Is a Video Game, Why Don’t We All Just Go Grand Theft Auto Up In Here?

Disinfonauts!

Part 2 of my discussion with Elliott Edge, of the Edge Bros gets into the question of morality and why we shouldn’t just steal cars and blow things up.  Check it out!

If you are interested in having these ideas expounded upon, please consider checking out the Edge Bros. fundraiser for making a feature length film about it.  http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/life-is-a-video-game-the-movie… Read the rest

Announcing The Release of “Born Again To Rebirth”

Hello Disinfonauts! It is with great pleasure that I tell you my second book, Born Again To Rebirth is available.

Graham Hancock has this to say about it:

“Gabriel D. Roberts is a writer to watch and in Born Again to Rebirth he shows us why. This is a terrific book at many levels. Part searing indictment of the born-again Christian establishment by a former insider, part revelation of a personal journey into and out of hell, part surgical exposé of the hidden roots of the hatred, fear and suspicion that divide our world, part return to the source in the understanding that unconditional love, unconditional forgiveness and a willingness to seek the truth without compromise are the only real signposts on our path to self-redemption. As an added bonus it’s a good read! Roberts uses language beautifully with no wasted words. I raced through Born Again to Rebirth in a sitting and I predict you’ll do the same. ”

Available in all major formats; I hope you will consider purchasing my book here.
Here’s a reading from the chapter, “Exodus”.

In this world, we see varying levels of what we traditionally call good and evil. We have ways to measure them with our religious notions, but if we see the world through a materialists eyes, what is good or evil? Some may say that good and evil are behaviors that are infringements on the survival of the group, or plan in which the participant is a part of; practically saying, evil is an acting out of animalistic nature that hurts the herd and nothing more. This does not work in all cases though, for there are things people do to themselves that are harmful and therefore seen as bad. The religious crowd sees morality as having come from God: a set of guidelines fraught with consequence and reward if obeyed or rejected, but why are certain things deemed sin? There are things that only seem to hurt us, so how can those things fit with the materialist view?… Read the rest

The 10 Unexpiated Sins That Are Dragging America to Hell

Oedipus Rex, mad with grief

Oedipus Rex, mad with grief

While there were a lot of political oberservations that needed to be made in relation to the recent tragic shooting in Arizona, I kinda feel like we’re beginning to find that comfort groove again.  Some boringly consistent themes are being repeated ad nauseam and it’s starting to bug me.

After Obama’s low-content ”why can’t we just all play nice” speech the gears started to turn.  Something more productive than threadbare conventional plattitudes has to come of this.

Must be my own perverse nature.  You see, some of my biggest heroes have been the guys who f*cked up, but then went on to perform monumental acts of contrition, and in the process redeeming not only themselves but the whole world.  From the (now lapsed) Roman Catholicism of childhood I still can remember St. Colmcille, whose penance for instigating a bloody war was exile and a mission to non-violently preach the love of Jesus Christ to the people of early Scotland.… Read the rest
