The Root of All Evil? Us!

In a stunning decision Lewis Black slammed down that gavel to say that the blogger is the root of all evil over the "ultimate fighters" in Comedy Central's show called “The Root of All Evil

It was a hard fight until Patton Oswalt made me giggle like a school girl, in his introduction, asks if blogging "unfiltered brain leakage is somehow changing the world?" that blogging takes "...one of the most essential activities of communicating and degrades it to 'poo flinging'... If left unchecked, blogging will educe all human expression to abbreviated grunts, emoticons and pictograms"

After picking myself up off the floor from laughter. Sorry I forgot 'ROFL'. I questioned how evil we really are. Do we change people's mind by doing this? Are we just flinging poo at each other? Would I be more effective on a milk crate at a crowded event? I need a couple of days to think about this one.

Another important question to ask myself: Am I just feeding the machine and blogging about the subject of blogging?

I believe they got it all wrong. The root of all evil is all of us, bloggers or non-bloggers. We are wicked sinners, and that all are in need of a savior. We have transgressed God's Law and we all need to repent. Forgive my poo flinging to any of you.

Am I evil? This makes me think of a song I heard the other day, I haven't heard it in a long time and it won't get out of my head. Please join me. Warning, clicking below and listening may render you involuntarily singing to the Lord throughout the day. Which is a good thing!



"What's going on inside of me? I despise my own behavior. This only serves to confirm my suspicions that I'm still a man in need of a Savior. I want to be in the light" DC Talk

I want to shine like the stars in Heaven. Oh, Lord be my light, and be my salvation, all I want is to be in the light.

Best Viewpoint: G.E said: "but I think we lost communication for a tremendously long while, and somehow, blogging instead of sitting in front of the tv brings communication back." Well said! Bravo!

  1. One of my favorite songs of theirs...

    Another is "You Consume Me"

    come to think of it though, the lyrics are kind of a mystical new age type deal...

    I'll take a good ol' hymn any day of the week - there's scripture in there - but if you need rap, Shai Linne spits the Truth accurately...

    "spits the Truth???" I'm such an old white guy...

  2. Benjamin,

    "I'm such an old white guy..."

    Ouch! please don't call yourself that, seeing that I am almost a decade older then you (40 next month). I wonder if I will keep this belly, when I get to Heaven?

  3. Hum, if I had to pick what to say about this whole post, maybe it would be:

    Opinions are opinions. Blogs might be filled of poo, but I think we lost communication for a tremendously long while, and somehow, blogging instead of sitting in front of the tv brings communication back. It is the highest quality? Poo flinging? Who cares! We are talking to MANY others again!

    So, I am an old school guy who was worried about the lack of interaction who find himself, suddenly with good news (opposed by other old school guys). Blogs might get us back to be talkative and might help us recuperate and develop our abilities to write. At the very least, despite all the bad habits also forming, you have to learn that you are not always clear, and thus learn to improve your sentences ... blah, blah, blah.

  4. G.E.,

    "but I think we lost communication for a tremendously long while, and somehow, blogging instead of sitting in front of the tv brings communication back."

    Well said, I absolutely agree. I was hoping someone would take this approach. I wanted to talk about wickedness of mankind and repentance so I took a different approach. I feel you are spot on though.

    Wow, I agree with G.E., I told you the world is coming to an end soon

    To be serious for a moment, I find this blogging to be a very healthy way to clarify my belief system. Atheists have challenged me a great deal to seek truth, and I like that. I have met some nice people, and not so nice also. We shall see what fruit this blog will bear over time.

    Nice job G.E.

  6. Keep your learning going on Dan (yep I am constantly keeping mine going on too). I agree with you that your blog is a way to clarify your belief system.
