Greek Geek Gawk

I am sad to say that one of my self-acclaimed and sometimes mildly amusing Mite Be Funny cartoons is NOT the all-time most-viewed post on this blog. It is this monstrosity …

It registers well over 3000 views, and that number continues to grow daily. If you search on Google for “maga hat mark of the best,” my post is at the top of page 2. I hesitate to post a link, but if someone is really interested in the original satirical post on Biblical/political (Biblitical?) numerology, click HERE.

In July, I added this post to disavow the original post as UTTER NONSENSE. It didn’t work. I could just kill the original post, but the views alternately entertain and terrify me. And then this comment from a reader arrived …

“re MAGA numerology; suggest you might recalculate using old Greek alphabet as it would have been written when this was prophecied; uppercase Mu / M was 12th (not 13th as now), upper case Alpha A was 1st, lowercase Zeta the original symbol of g was 6th letter at time (not 7th as now) plus Alpha again 12+1+6+1”

That may very well be the case, but it’s all Greek to me.

Thank you. I’ll be here all week, folks.

What is our fascination with the Bible, end times, prophecies, and relating Trump’s four year reign of terror to all those? A dear friend of this blog sent me this WaPo article about exactly that …

For full article, click HERE. If you can’t stomach the insanity, here are a few lowlights …

“Anyone who think this ends tonight is totally mistaken … you are still the president and we need you to stay on the front lines, sir,” prophet Mario Bramnick, one of Trump’s faith advisers, said Jan. 7.

“In December, (Prophet Lance) Wallnau said on a prayer call that God would “overturn” the election because Trump’s “assignment” from God has not yet been completed.”

“And the charismatic queen of American prosperity gospel, Paula White, has been by Trump’s side through his presidency, overseeing his faith office. In November, a video went viral of White prophesying that God has dispatched angels from Africa and South America to help Trump achieve victory.”

Here’s Paula White in action speaking gibberish …

Now where have I heard something as dumb as that before? Oh, yeah, maybe here …

Really, how does anyone take Paula White seriously? Sure, I guess when she’s making sweet music along with some special guests …

Paula White and her ilk are not prophets, but they do like to profit from the gullible who blindly swallow their hogwash. I just find it sad that so many people refuse to live in the reality of the here and now, but rather seek comfort in believing fairy tales that will never come true.

And speaking of tales that will never come true, don’t forget to buy my book called Beyond: Tales of the Afterlife. How’s that for a gratuitous book plug snuck in to mercifully end a meandering blog post? There’s a story in my collection titled “Save Yourself” about a prosperity gospel preacher facing his fate in the afterlife. Click HERE for the Amazon link or buy from this blog. I prophesy that you’ll love it and I will profit.
