In a very famous movie staring Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, one of the lead characters yells the famous line, "You can't handle the truth!". Every person hearing that line in the context of the movie and in every other context imaginable immediately thinks, "of course I can". But can we? More to the point, would we even recognize the truth if we heard it or saw it? These are questions that until very recently were mostly rhetorical. Of course we want to know the truth about everything. The truth would be obviously the the truth when we did hear it, read it, see it, or feel it. How could the truth of our reality be otherwise?
In my insatiable quest for knowledge, I started exploiting the internet and its vast source of information. When I was still hampered by slow DSL connections, I was limited to what I could read or download as audio-only. This satisfied me for years and I still have several years worth of iTunesU courses bookmarked in the category of "when I have time". With faster service I am finally able to stream lectures by John Dominic Crossan, Bart Erhman, and many other scholars whose works I had studied. I was also finally able to quickly explore topics that were not covered in typical college and seminary lectures.
I discovered that there was more to YouTube than in inane drivel popularized on Facebook and Twitter. As I worked on my crafts and as I cleaned the house, I watched videos on topics I didn't even know existed. I fell into the proverbial rabbit hole and there is no way to unlearn what I have learned. With the knowledge I have learned, I cannot un-eat the forbidden fruit of knowledge and return to blissful ignorance. Our world is as it is whether we choose to acknowledge the truth or not.
This winter I will be writing a series of blogs and I will attempt a video presentation of the vast information I have uncovered. Many mornings as I drive my youngest to school, we discuss my latest fascination, the latest bit of information that has once again shattered my world. I do not have many answers but my questions have grown exponentially. Most of them boil down to simple ones.
Why are people who ask uncomfortable questions labeled as conspiracy theorists and even sometimes imprisoned? When did it become criminal to seek to understand some of the most heinous events of our recent past? Who really controls the narratives that we are told and decides which discoveries are not worth airing? Why are we allowing our children's education to be dictated by corporate interests and letting the schools be run in the very ways I was taught in my teacher education courses were ineffective and even detrimental?
I am already digressing.
One topic leads to another which leads to another and another. What for me began as a curiosity about Judaism, a shattered world view. However, as a very wise man liked to say, "until you are lost you cannot be found". I am lost.
Things I have learned....(in no particular order except for how they popped into my head as I type)

These are only a few of the topics that have changed to way I see the world. If you have made it this far and not dismissed me as just another nut case, here are a few of the researchers I follow who have opened my life.
Linda Moulton Howe- earthfiles.com Linda has reported science news for decades. She is an amazing woman who does such old fashioned yet vital things like checking sources before reporting a story.
Jim Marrs- another old fashioned journalist who follows the facts wherever they may lead.
Joseph Farrell, Peter Levenda, Richard Dolan, David Irving, David Cole, Stanton Friedman- historians and researchers who use primary sources.
Dark Journalist, Forum Borealis, Giza Death Star, Catherine Austin Fitts, Freedom Of Mind, AronRa, Jews for Judaism, Henry Abramson, Sam Harris, Peter Boghossian, Matt Dillahunty, Steven Greer, Bart Ehrman and Rabbi Art Green are a few of the other sources I study.
Do not take my word for anything. Ask questions. Ask yourself why it is considered dangerous or unpatriotic to ask certain questions. I have not linked any of my sources in this blog nor have I provided any references. That is totally out of character for me. I am the footnote and reference queen. I want to be able to check ever statement made in an article and I want my readers to check my work. If I am wrong, if I have misunderstood something, I want to know. In future articles, I will have so many citations your head will spin. This one is just my Sunday morning rambling and plan of action.
