Time is a false god

There are many stories told about daylight saving and faded curtains, but the origin story is a strange one. An older report from the BBC that resurfaced last week says that before alarm clocks were common in Britain, workers would pay “knocker uppers” to wake them up each morning by tapping on their windows. It’s not clear whether anyone actually likes changing the clocks around, but using our time well is a subject close to most Mad Christians’ hearts.

Those who follow Stop the White Noise, will know that setting up your day around prayers and Scripture reading is always recommended by the Rev Fisk. We found a great set of graphics from christisthecure.org about time spent Bible reading in America (below).

Trapped Inside the Dream Machines

If your TV was really brainwashing you, how would you even know?Don’t tell me it wouldn’t make a thrilling movie. I imagine it beginning with MI6 finding the “spark” in a cache of Nazi-tek that they intercepted on its way to Stalingrad and ending somewhere in the throne room of Cthulhu.

Psychological warfare is powered by symbols. The most independent symbols are words. To subject a people without their awareness, replace all their words with pictures. Then they will be unable to speak clearly and will resort to yelling about how everything is obvious and how you should listen to them yell you into agreement about that.

But all that really needs to happen for the demons to keep winning is for us to keep watching movies rather than praying the psalms, reading the proverbs, and pondering the red letters.

Diagnosing the problem over and over again is not a solution.

The Christian thing to do is to plan to die well.
