A Great Prophecy. Subtitled the Bible can turn your mind into oatmeal.

ti's as if Professor Ginsberg had a crystal ball the way he describes today's insanity 25 year ago. Just like my Youtube video on the “endmeme” it shows how belief in the second coming is very dangerous for the entire planet and the future of the world. Gog and Magog, it shows how Biblical belief can turn human brains into mishmash. I hope President Trump doesn't eventually come to the same conclusion: He needed a bomb.

Allen Ginsberg, Torino, Italy, Janurary 24th 1992.

I agree. I also like the neuroscience research that shows that what ever type of theism that you believe in is in the same part of the brain.

Another line I agree with from Howl, "Molach who robbed my of my childhood ecstasy and joy of like."  (Something like that)  Rachel Carlson in The Silent Spring brings up the same idea with a "sense of wonder" that is taken away from us.  Ever see a newborn colt jumping and stretching its legs for the first time?  Same thing.

He had another prophecy in Howl:

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness,

     starving hysterical naked,

I agree. So much nonsense floating around with an apparent flare of authority to it. The "end of the world on 9-23" being one of them. I didn't even read past the headline. The scary thing is that I remember when I would have. This takes me right into today and the Trump supporters who believe his words and his nonsense without fact checking a damned thing. Will some of these be people who might be writing history for tomorrow? Let's hope not. I have enough trouble with reality now. I need more nonsense just like I need to understand more about twerking.
