Breaking Down The Bible.
Genesis 6. The Sons of God and Noah’s Ark

This is one of my favourite chapters of the Bible, and, from my point of view, one of the most enigmatic, too. If only someone had gone to the trouble of thinking about it carefully in the 2000 years that have passed since it was written.
Almost every line poses mind-boggling questions.

1. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

Who were the mothers of these daughters?

2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Brainstorming Ideas for a Thriller. Weird Crime Scene.

For some unaccountable reason most visitors to my blog prefer to make queries through e-mail rather than use the comment feature. Anyway, one of the recurring themes I’m asked to pitch a few ideas for is unusual or weird crime scene. Guess what, I haven’t had to rack my brains too long: fact is stranger than fiction.

The other day I came across one of the weirdest stories of crime scene investigation, either fictional or true, I’ve ever heard, read about or seen on TV. It could be made into a terrific thriller, I doubt I could have come up with anything that bizarrely grotesque.

The story kicks off when a worried father goes over to his son’s place after he hasn’t heard from him for days and finds his son, 45, dead on the entrance hall floor stark naked. Police ruled out robbery since there was no evidence of forced entry, picked locks, or signs of struggle, no suspicious fingerprints, and nothing was missing.

The Unsustainable World. Economic Meltdown or Global Systemic Crisis of Capitalism.

‘These elites do not have a vision. They know only one word: more. They will continue to exploit the nation, the global economy and the ecosystem. And they will use their money to hide in gated compounds when it all implodes.’ (Chris Hedges) 

Money. Rolling pound coins

Any economic system built by humans is in itself unsustainable since it’s always based on some kind of exploitation and eventually degenerates through unbridled greed and corruption. In the end, The Excess of Evil Destroys the Evil.

First and foremost, any Ponzi scam is bound to tumble down sooner or later like a cardcastle, and basically that’s what modern capitalist economy is — a giant global Ponzi scheme disguised with fancy terms and phoney financial structures (stock exchange, bonds, fiat money, shares, legal speculation like short-selling, swaps, deferred taxes, etc.) wrapped in convoluted equations, and as such is riding for a fall.
