**This started as a reply to uglydog under Gerald Celente’s new interview about the 2nd american revolution. Ugly Dog brought up the book the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn.
Was a fascinating read uglydog, my father gave it to me over the summer for vacation reading. It’s a good read of fiction and I won’t deny that anything is possible when dealing with events larger than ourselves. I can prove neither way but it is interesting the correlations between old Israel and Modern U.S. It would seem if correct that 2015 will be an interesting year for the U.S.
Now for my personal opinion. I consider myself a Christian because I do follow the teachings of Christ and see him as one of the greatest revolutionaries of spirit this world has ever known and I trust him completely. However, as a human being full of wonder I cannot deny that the scope and grandiosity of the universe could actually render a being of such intelligence, one that is beyond our arrogant view of a God that men have influenced. The Wrath of God, The Vengefulness of God, The Jealousy of God etc. These are not actions of a perfect all knowing being, these are actions of men and emotions of sin in man given to a man made idea of God.
My problem with modern religion, and why religion, just as modern government can’t understand it’s a dying dinosaur. My father is HIGHLY religious and he speaks of my generation as the “Great falling away” spoken of in the bible, but I try to explain to him that the church body yourselves are the falling away with your empty rituals and hypocritical pandering to “the house of god”. I see a group of people who have many reasons for being at church, but let me tell you only find very few who are there to actually and truthfully have their spiritual cup filled.
Young people aren’t found in churches generally anymore is because we don’t see God working there. I grew up my entire life until the age of 18 in a very strict Baptist home and going to 3 to 4 church services a week was normal. These people talked behind each others backs, they judged others that didnt come to church, They proclaimed, as if God themselves, that they knew who wasn’t saved and was just lost, they acted all holy on Sunday but lived like hell the other 6 days. Mind you this was not one church or just one denomination inside protestantism but a vast array of Christian churches, even Non-Denominational.
This is the part of the paradigm shift that is coming that people from my Fathers Generation do not understand. What we have now is a dying concept of how we worship the greater power most all of us can feel. I am not asking or condoning some new age religion, what I am asking for is a return to true spiritual reform within ourselves (the same way we are asking for constitutional values in government and society). To re-examine our inner being to see whether we are in tune with light, love, truth, justice and that universal feeling of “this is right because it’s intrinsic value of being right.”
Ultimately, I am tired of living in a world that is spending everyday pretending that something magical and amazing isn’t going on. Spending time walking among the walking dead with their heads to the ground in defeat, instead of craning their eyes to the heavens in amazement that we have but only fleeting time here and something about this journey is holy.

Call it a Petit Mal, mild stroke, or just a temporary lapse of sanity, but I went against my junk coin roots last night. Earlier, I had stated my preference for junk. This remains true to this day, but last night I purchase some silver from Apmex that in no way can be considered junk:

" The error I see stackers making is the value of their stash in fiat. Fiat that is rapidly losing any purchasing power and is losing its usefulness.
