In this blog I will be trying to get to the truth about what is really important in life, and to write satirically about what is not - all in my quest for The Stuff Reality is Made of.
I also write articles on Religion, History, Travel, Flying, Philosophy, Physics, Meta Physics, Natural History. Mathematics and Psychology.
You can also read my religious articles on our Christian website at www.whatafriend.co.za
My closing arguments - Part 1 - by P.K.Odendaal - 20 December 2013
time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax
Of cabbages, and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings."
From the Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll.
The time has come for me to conclude with my closing
arguments in this trial where I have placed Great Arguments before the Great
Judge. I myself and how I think and experience life have also bowed to these arguments. I have over the
past six years enjoyed writing my blog articles, and I have now exhausted all
the ideas which I am passionate about and it is time for me to move on. I have
also enjoyed the patronage of my readers who have inspired me to consider all
sides of every argument, and I hope I have been objective in giving voice to
the proponents of my adversary arguments. However - I never expected to have the last word.
There is no chapel on the day On which they hang a man: The Chaplain's heart is far too sick, Or his face is far too wan, Or there is that written in his eyes Which none should look upon. So they kept us close till nigh on noon, And then they rang the bell, And the Warders with their jingling keys Opened each listening cell, And down the iron stair we tramped, Each from his separate Hell.
