The Amateur Society: Frustration, Boredom, And Identity

All of us experience frustration and boredom at various intervals. Occasionally we’ll go through a season where they occur simultaneously, and other times they will take turns occupying the forefront of our attention. Often these conditions don’t rise to the level of our full attention, but perhaps they should. A proper investigation of them can deliver important insights about ourselves and how our identity is developed. Generally, we typically view our routines and standard operating procedures as less interesting because of a lack of novelty and the dullness of repetition. However, proper perspective dictates that the more time we dedicate to something the more interested we should be in it. Our habits and routines are a large part of what defines our decisions and ultimately our identities. How our worldview structures our outlook on these apparently more benign states has much more importance than meets the eye.

Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!

God bless,

The wickedness of pedophilia has been exposed for the world to see. Governments and powerful individuals are attempting to silence the outcry because they are participants in this gruesome sexual depravity and enablers of this most heinous sex trafficking business. Will you be silent in the face of such evil? Many are standing firm and naming names. One such warrior is Liz Crokin. This episode of Soaring Eagle Radio is my conversation with Liz about the part she plays in exposing the darkness.

Chris Baucom – Virtual Imperialism: The Conquest of Your Mind

BrainElectric

Chris Baucom is the co-host alongside Ross Powell of Remnant Radio Network – available as past of the On the Objective podcast network – (http://remnantradionetwork.com/ | https://ontheobjective.org/). Chris is also the founder and editor of Home Grown Prepper (https://homegrownprepper.com/).

The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” —Werner Heisenberg, 1932 Nobel Prize in Physics for the creation of quantum mechanics (which is essential to modern science).

Heisenberg eventually came to the same conclusion as countless other notable scientists throughout history: Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, Sir. Joseph J. Thomson (discovered electron), Robert Boyle, and many more.

With each passing day, the marvel of scientific discovery makes it more and more apparent to the most enlightened scholars inhabiting this heavenly body that only God could have created the unimaginable world we live in today.

In the modern age, another group of evangelizers appear bent on dismantling God’s Creation and surrogating it with their own. It’s not scientific discovery that challenges the future of our species; it’s how profiteers will manipulate it to leaven their agendas at any cost. Dare we say this is an attempt to recreate the world in their own image? Does this sound familiar?

“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” –Matthew 24:24

It’s That Simple – Pastor Tim Dilena – Times Square Church – 07.23.2017

Nicodemus

There is a profound dilemma that is the cause of much confusion. The thing that God perfectly hates – sin – is inside those who He perfectly loves – us. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We need to be delivered and redeemed for our condition. Jesus is our Savior. Faith in Jesus allows us to traverse the gap between us and God. He is the way: the only way. We can’t bridge the gap by our own effort or strength. We can’t pay our own bill. Trust in the Lord.

Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

John 3:5-17

The Amateur Society: Uncertain Uncertainties

ElectronCloud

Amateurs,

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Tuesday 7/25, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at amateursociety@gmail.com. These weekly meetings can be found on Spreaker, YouTube, and on iTunes via the Podcast app.

After spending a month looking into blockchain technology, tonight we will turn back to the dynamics of the current events landscape. In many ways it seems like we are stuck in the same place with respect to the dominant narratives, trends, and themes. In other ways we’re seeing some material developments on key issues. How do we know which version of current events is accurate? Is President Trump on a fast track to impeachment or an overhaul that leads to prosperity? Stepping back, how should we structure our analysis through the lens of uncertainty. This poorly understood area of decision making and critical thinking rarely gets attention because of its seemingly arcane underpinnings in probabilistic mathematics. However, it is both useful and necessary to understand core principles about uncertainty so that we can proceed through the morass of information in a more informed manner.
