Islam; Christianity and Terrorism


Let me start by pointing out that Islam, Judaism and Christianity are all monotheistic religions of the same god. Call him Allah, Yahweh or Jehovah he is the same god. Something that most Christians do not know and do not want to know is that Muslims worship the same god, read the same Bible; Old and New Testament and they also believe in Jesus Christ. They, like the Jews just don’t believe he was the son of god, Islam does however see him as a prophet of god. They also differ from Christians on the Resurrection as they believe that god ascended Jesus into heaven before he died on the cross. They all three believe they are descendants of Adam, of Abraham and of Noah.

Another not well know fact and also a commonly disputed fact; as much so as their god being the same god and their holy books being the same is that Muslims claim the Quran was given to Muhhamed by the Arch Angel Gabriel. Yes that Arch Angel Gabriel.

What does all this have to do with terrorism? Just as Christians can’t all be lumped in the same group as Jim Jones, Davis Koresh, Adolf Hitler or those that took part in the Inquisitions or the Crusades, not all Muslims can be lumped in the same groups as terrorists; ISIS, Al Queda or Boko Haram.

Should Children Be Taught To Respect The Religious?


I am fortunate enough to be in a position where I not only have a hand and a say in the raising of my 2 year old twin grandsons, within this position I am also fortunate enough that they are being raised as atheists. Like my atheist father I and their father will be teaching them about religion as much as and as often as possible, but unlike my father throughout their younger years they will hear Bible stories in the same context as fairy tales and children’s stories about dragons, Hobbits, Trolls or giants. I grew up going to Sunday School in Protestant churches to learn about the Bible all the while knowing my dad did not believe in god. But I took those that did believe and their beliefs seriously; I don’t want my grandsons to think of religion as anything other than make believe. There is one drawback to this that I can foresee however; that is how do I teach them to be respectful or at least not disrespectful to the religious who take their beliefs seriously? Or do I end the unconditional respect that is granted to religion, the religious and their institutions beginning with my grandchildren.

I say I begin to end this unearned respect demanded by and given to religion. The twins will grow up looking at those that believe in the Bible and worship god the same way they would look at someone who believed in Grimm’s Fairy Tales or worshiped the Wizard of Oz. If I am going to teach them what I believe then they are going to grow up looking at god no different than Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny. The boys are not going to be lied to about these fictional characters and told they are for real, but I also cannot raise them as if they don’t exist because at least as far as Santa is concerned during the Christmas season; yes I refer to the holidays as Christmas because that is what it has always been to me, Santa is everywhere and all the other kids are lied to about him. I remember trying to explain to my youngest daughter why Santa was at every store we went to one afternoon, I think I told her he had helpers that dressed like him because everyone wanted him to be everywhere and she told me that the elves were his helpers, to which I had no reply. My grandsons however will be told the truth, Santa is just pretend, and that it is fun to pretend so lots of people pretend to be Santa and parents pretend that presents they buy were really brought from Santa just because it is fun, no other reason. I will tell them the same about the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, it’s just things we do for fun.

Although I will have a tough time selling the fun to pretend in god story; there is very little if anything about god that is ‘fun’ or ‘funny’. But then we humans do find it fun to scare the hell out of each other so I guess that works as well.

What If God Didn’t Sacrifice His Only Son What If He Punished Him


Let me start by stating the obvious, I am a non-believer. But……what if god didn’t forsake Jesus but Jesus actually forsake god by breaking his commandments and preaching against the words and commandments given to Moses by god? From the get go Jesus comes out saying the way to heaven is through him, that we are to obey him as we obey god. Christians call him the Lord. Now, given the fact that the first two commandments, and to theologians the most important ones, clearly state we are not to worship anyone or anything but god. There you go. Was not Jesus blatantly and defiantly breaking these commandments?

In the New Testament Jesus says that Moses went easy on the Israelites because he understood their sinful nature. Jesus says that if you lust at another mans wife even just with your eyes if you notice her beauty then you have committed adultery. He says that god has sent him to tell them that they need to get to him by way of his son, not the way Moses had told them. He basically throws out Moses’ credentials and says he didn’t do what god told him to do.

God had already commanded the deaths of many people for crimes not much worse than those that Jesus commits. What if god told the leaders of the Jewish Temples to accuse Jesus, what if he told Pontius Pilot to crucify Jesus, what if at the very least he let it happen as punishment for Jesus defying god?

Just a thought.

 

Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel


 

I have always had a standard statement if you will to those Christians who try to sell me on The Bible. It is simply, if you can tell me where Cain’s wife came from I will convert right now. No one has ever given me the answer.

I already know the answer but still challenge a Christian to give me one.

Not just a where from answer either, but a why was this information omitted from the Christian Bible? The lost books of Eden are in the Torah. (For any Christians reading this that would be the Hebrew of Jewish ‘Bible’ which is what would be renamed (and edited to fit in the time alotted) the Old Testament in the Christian Bible.

This omitted or lost book does more than tell where Cain’s wife came from. It does more than explain why Cain killed Abel. It actually adds some validity to the Christians ‘Intelligent Design Theory. The claim that one man, one woman, their two male children one of which is murdered, could populate the world, really? A 2 year old can see the flaw in that story.

Here is how the story originally went.

Eve bore Adam his first son Cain (Cain means Hater) and his second born was Cain’s twin sister Luluwa (Luluwa means Beautiful). 3 years later Eve bore Adam two more children, a son named Abel and his twin sister Aklia…

When their children had grown up Adam and Eve set out to wed Cain’s twin Luluwa to Abel whom they favored above them all, and to wed Abel’s twin Aklia to Cain.

Thus was made the motive which moved Cain to kill Abel. Once Cain slew Abel he then was wed to his sister Luluwa.

Seven years later Eve bore Adam another son whom they named Seth.

When Seth was 15 years old he was wed to Abel’s sister Aklia.

Validity. Thin veil of it but more a more plausible story that Adam and Eve had two sons and hence forth populated the world.

Why omit this book? Incest of course. It’s a sin. Oh but wait…..Adam, wife Eve, their two sons Cain and Abel, one kills the other leaving only one son Cain. His mother Eve would have to bear Cains children being the only womb and all……but wouldn’t that be incest? Okay next reason for omitting the book that includes 3 more children 2 of them women one who would bear Cain’s children the other the children of Adam and Eve’s youngest and third son Seth. It tells why Cain killed Abel, over a woman. One might think the Christians would use this to show how a woman can lure men to evil.

Given the information or lack there of provided I can’t swallow that teaching Adam and Eve in schools isn’t an around the water cooler chat but an actual case before the Supreme Court….WTF? Really? Assuming this illustrious panel of Judges all hold at least a law degree, what 6-8 years worth of Ivy League Education why are they not at the very least insulted to be asked to consider this bullshit has any semblance of a valid argument.

 

 

 

The Extermination of Jesus The Jew


If Jesus would have been put on trial in Rome by a Catholic Court and Judged by the Pope instead of being tried in Jerusalem by a Roman General who ordered he be given 40 lashes and made to walk up to the top of Golgotha to be nailed to a cross and crucified for being a Messiah he would have been crammed into a box car of a train and shipped to Auschwitz where he would have had a number tattooed on his arm, where he would have been stripped naked then sent to a gas chamber where he would have been exterminated for being a Jew.

The Gap Where Lilith Should Be


According to the original Hebrew text Eve was not the first woman God made Lilith was.

Genesis 1:26 And God said Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that crepeth upon the earth.


Genesis 1:27 So God made man in his own image in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Adam and Lilith were made both together in God’s own image. Lilith was sent into exile because Adam didn’t like her sexually aggressiveness. When the Christian re-wrote the original Hebrew text and called it the Old Testament Lilith was left out.

Geneses 2:15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Genesis 2:18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him an help meet for him.

Genesis 2:21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept, and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof.

Genesis 2:22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

When Is It Wrong To Protect Rights


I am not for censorship. I am not against the First Amendment. I understand how important it is. I also know that as American’s we have a responsibility not to abuse those rights. With different ideas of what is offensive or inappropriate the First Amendment boils down to a matter of opinion. Or does it.

Using the film The Innocence of Muslims as the obvious example I think the unbelievable over reaction is nothing short of extreme fanaticism. I don’t see the anti in the film, in fact the film is a pretty accurate script taken right out of the Quran. Let me state my point of views on religion here before I go any further. I have always been VERY outspoken about my feelings towards Christianity and organized religion. I feel the Catholic Church should be held accountable for Crimes against humanity, that Christianity as a whole is responsible for Crimes against Humanity. I entertain the idea that Jesus and Muhammed were no more than another David Koresh, Jim Jones, Charles Manson or any other Cult leader. I think that anyone  who actually believes the Bible is  borderline retarded. Religion is nothing more than another way for man to control women and government.

That being said, does the First Amendment give anyone the right to speak freely outside America? Isn’t it rather arrogant of us Americans to expect other cultures and countries to just take insult when they don’t have the same political views? What gives us the right to voice our opinion outside of America? Under the Constitution we have the right not to listen to anyone expressing their right to free speech. Under the Constitution we have the right to disagree with our government. Other countries don’t know or understand this idea.

Should our government have apologized like they did? Absolutely not. Should our government have taken the movie off or banned it here? Absolutely not. Should it have available on You Tube in the Middle East? Absolutely not.

We have the right as Americans to express our views, our ideals, our opinions, or insults, and our jokes in the form of speech, print or video. American newspapers, television stations, record companies and movie theaters have the right to air, record or publish these opinions. But we shouldn’t have the right to impose these rights in someone else’s country.

The First Jewish Ghetto’s


I grew up and lived most of my adult life believing that Hitler was the sole founder of the Jewish Ghetto. I grew up believing that the restrictions placed on the Jews, where the could work, what they had to wear, who they could marry, and of course where they lived was all Hitler’s idea. I grew up believing that Hitler pretty much acted on his own separate from any other world leader. I was wrong.

1096 A.D. First Crusade. Crusaders massacre the Jews of the Rhineland.

Massacres of Jews takes place in the First Crusade, destroying entire Jewish
communities in Mainz, Speyer, Worms, Cologne and other cities.

The number of the slain was eight hundred in these two days.” The chronicler Guibert de Nogent reports that the Rouen Crusaders certain Jews, a race more inimical to God than any other”.* said: “We desire to go and fight God’s enemies in the East; but we have before our eyes certain Jews, a race more inimical to God than any other”.*

1144 A.D. First recorded blood libel. In Norwich it was alleged that the Jews had “bought a Christian child before Easter, tortured him with all the tortures wherewith our Lord was tortured and on Friday hanged him on a rood in hatred of our Lord.” (England) This notorious allegation that Jews murder non-Jews, especially Christians, in order to obtain blood for the Passover or other rituals is a complex of deliberate lies, trumped up accusations, and popular beliefs about the murder-lust of the Jews and their blood-thirstiness, based on the conception that Jews hate Christianity and mankind in general. It is combined with the delusion that Jews are in some way not human and must have recourse to special remedies and subterfuges in order to appear at least outwardly, like other men. The blood libel led to trials and massacres of Jews. Its origin is rooted in ancient almost primordial, concepts concerning the potency and energies of blood. It is one of the most terrible expressions of human cruelty and credulity. These blood rituals are expressly forbidden in Judaism. (See Leviticus 17;11 etc.)

The Jews, realizing that they would not escape alive, preferred to kill themselves. . . They chose one of their number (and) this man put some five hundred of them to death, with their consent. He then descended from the castle tower with the few Jewish children who still remained alive. . . They killed him by quartering. They spared the children, whom they made Catholics by baptism”.*

1347-1350 A. D. During the Black Death, Jews are accused of poisoning wells in order to  overthrow Christendom, and many thousands of Jews are killed. Pope Clement VI defends the Jews against these charges.*

1389 A.D. MASSACRES in Bohemia, Spain.

windows to street mobs below, due to preaching by Dominicans against the Jews.

1598 A.D. Ritual murder charge that sent three Jews to their deaths. Execution of the supposed guilty was done by QUARTERING. (In his book the “Birth of the Prison” Michel Foucault describes at length the quartering of a condemned man in 1757. It was done eventually by six horses instead of the four original ones and other means had to come in to play due to the failure even of six horses as the prisoners limbs were tied to ropes harnessed to the horses. Each horse pulled in a different direction. One horse fell to the ground unsuccessfully. Knives had to be used for severing…)

The word designates more particularly the attacks carried out by the Christian population. Each pogrom surpassed the other in savagery. KIEV, ODESSA; Here murder of whole families was a common occurrence. Partial data are available for 530 communities in which 887 major pogroms and 349 minor pogroms occurred.

1919 A.D. 3000 Jews killed in Hungarian pogroms.

It wasn’t until 1938 that Hitler joined the rest of the world and carried on the 1900 year tradition of persecuting the Jews. Father Pacelli, who later became Pope Benedict the XVI, was called Hitler’s Cardinal.

A Concordance was signed between Hitler and the Pope not only giving Hitler the Church’s blessing but their support financially.

1938 A.D. Burning in AUSTRIA & GERMANY of Synagogues. Jews sent to concentration camps. Beginnings of the Holocaust

1939 A. D. Josef Tiso, a Catholic priest with a doctorate in theology, became president of  independent Slovakia. An extremist hater of Jews, he allied Slovakia with Nazi Germany and, with strong objections from the Vatican, deported most Slovakian Jews to their deaths in the camps. He declared: “It is a Christian action to expel the Jews, because it is for the good of the people, which is thus getting rid of its pests.” Monsignor Tiso was executed after the war as a war criminal.*

1940 A.D. Gassing, shootings in Polish Ghettos (Jewish).

1941-1945 The “Final Solution” takes place in Nazi-occupied Europe. This Holocaust, the  killing of some six million Jews, “happened in the ‘heartland’ of Western Christian Europe. . . It happened with the passive acquiescence or active collaboration of most European Christians, and no decisive protest from church leadership, Catholic or protestant” (Rosemary Radford Ruether).*

1942-1945 Cardinal Adolf Bertram, Archbishop of Breslau and head of the German Bishops’ Conference, opposes all public protest against the deportation and massacre of the Jews. He maintains a cordial relationship with Hitler, and in May 1945 he orders requiem masses for Hitler be offered in all his parishes.*

1944 A.D. EXTERMINATION OF HUNGARIAN JEWS.

1945 A.D.HOLOCAUST Final Count: 6,000,000 Jews slaughtered.

1946 A.D. Pogroms in Poland – 42 Jews murdered.

The surrender of Nazi Germany in WWII didn’t end the Vatican’s support for the concentration camps, In 1988  a cross was erected in front of the gates at Auschwitz. The Catholic Church and the Pope Benedict XVI even went so far as to hold mass at the Gates of Auschwitz with the inclusion of a prayer by the Pope calling for the conversion of Jews. The Cross is there to this day.

Massacres of Jews takes place in the First Crusade, destroying entire Jewish
communities in Mainz, Speyer, Worms, Cologne and other cities.

The number of the slain was eight hundred in these two days.” The chronicler Guibert de Nogent reports that the Rouen Crusaders certain Jews, a race more inimical to God than any other”.* said: “We desire to go and fight God’s enemies in the East; but we have before our eyes certain Jews, a race more inimical to God than any other”.*

1144 A.D. First recorded blood libel. In Norwich it was alleged that the Jews had “bought a Christian child before Easter, tortured him with all the tortures wherewith our Lord was tortured and on Friday hanged him on a rood in hatred of our Lord.” (England) This notorious allegation that Jews murder non-Jews, especially Christians, in order to obtain blood for the Passover or other rituals is a complex of deliberate lies, trumped up accusations, and popular beliefs about the murder-lust of the Jews and their blood-thirstiness, based on the conception that Jews hate Christianity and mankind in general. It is combined with the delusion that Jews are in some way not human and must have recourse to special remedies and subterfuges in order to appear at least outwardly, like other men. The blood libel led to trials and massacres of Jews. Its origin is rooted in ancient almost primordial, concepts concerning the potency and energies of blood. It is one of the most terrible expressions of human cruelty and credulity. These blood rituals are expressly forbidden in Judaism. (See Leviticus 17;11 etc.)

The Jews, realizing that they would not escape alive, preferred to kill themselves. . . They chose one of their number (and) this man put some five hundred of them to death, with their consent. He then descended from the castle tower with the few Jewish children who still remained alive. . . They killed him by quartering. They spared the children, whom they made Catholics by baptism”.*

(In his book the “Birth of the Prison” Michel Foucault describes at length the quartering of a condemned man in 1757. It was done eventually by six horses instead of the four original ones and other means had to come in to play due to the failure even of six horses as the prisoners limbs were tied to ropes harnessed to the horses. Each horse pulled in a different direction. One horse fell to the ground unsuccessfully. Knives had to be used for severing…)

They are perfidious murderers of Christ. They worship the Devil. Their religion is a sickness. The Jews are the odious assassins of Christ and for killing God there is no expiation possible, no indulgence or pardon. Christians may never cease vengeance, and the Jew must live in servitude forever. God always hated the Jews. It is essential that all Christians hate them.” He was called the Bishop with the Golden Tongue. St. Ambrose, Bishop of the Church offered to burn the synagogue himself.

395 A.D. St. Gregory of Nyssa in sermons and writings characterized Jews as assassins of the Prophets, companions of the Devil, a race of vipers, a Sanhedrin of Demons, enemies of all that is beautiful, hogs and goats in their lewd grossness.

ACCUSATION of Ritual murder by the Jews during Purim. Christians confiscated synagogues in ANTIOCH. These were not hooligans but Church Fathers! AUGUSTINE, JEROME, AMBROSE AND LESSER SAINTS AS ST. CHRYSOSTROM AND CYRIL, added to untruths the new ones that Jews were dishonest and prone to sexual perversions.

1144 A.D. First recorded blood libel. In Norwich it was alleged that the Jews had “bought a Christian child before Easter, tortured him with all the tortures wherewith our Lord was tortured and on Friday hanged him on a rood in hatred of our Lord.” (England) This notorious allegation that Jews murder non-Jews, especially Christians, in order to obtain blood for the Passover or other rituals is a complex of deliberate lies, trumped up accusations, and popular beliefs about the murder-lust of the Jews and their blood-thirstiness, based on the conception that Jews hate Christianity and mankind in general.

It is one of the most terrible expressions of human cruelty and credulity. These blood rituals are expressly forbidden in Judaism. (See Leviticus 17;11 etc.)

But because Calvinists were steeped in Old Testament theology, the Dutch people respected the Jews as “the Chosen” people; and were not anti-Semitic in their faith. The reformation was a time of turmoil as the Roman Church and feudalism lost their supremacy. There was a rising up of Nationhood and Luther was a German nationalist. The Talmud was seized and burned everywhere by Papal authority. Jews in Catholic countries and Polish Jews suffered greatly.

This spectre of a worldwide Jewish conspiracy aiming at reducing the Gentiles to slavery or extermination loomed up in the medieval Christian imagination and grew out of legends about well poisonings and plague spreading. It was concocted in Paris by an unknown author working for the Russian secret police. It was an alleged conference of the leaders of World Jewry. It was translated into all the world languages. In 1963 a Spanish edition was published. During World War II, the Protocols of the elders of Zion became an implicit justification for the GENOCIDE of the Jews and Nazi propaganda relied on them until the last days of the Third Reich. Smaller pamphlets of it have been distributed in B.C. 1983 published in California… Required reading in most Arab countries, in schools, to this day.

1904 A. D. In an interview with Zionist leader Theodor Hertzl, Pope St. Pius X says: “I know, it is disagreeable to see the Turks in possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with it.

If you go to Palestine and your people settle there, you will find us clergy and churches ready to baptize you all”.*

In a pastoral letter on January 23, Bishop Johannes Maria Gföllner of Linz, Austria, declares that while the radical anti-Semitism preached by Nazism is completely incompatible with Christianity, it is the right and duty of Christians to fight and break the harmful influences of Jewry in all areas of modern cultural life. The Austrian episcopate condemns the letter in December for causing racial hatred and conflict.*

1933-1939 The general consensus among the Catholic papers in Poland is that Jewish influence should be reduced in all areas of life, that the Polish and Jewish communities should be separated as much as possible, and that the most desirable option is mass emigration of the Jews from Poland.

1936 A. D. Cardinal August Hlond, the primate of Poland, issues a pastoral letter, stating: “I warn you against that ethical attitude that is fundamentally and uncompromisingly anti-Jewish.

You should close yourselves to the harmful influence of Jewry. . . But you may not attack Jews, beat them, hurt them, slander them. In a Jew you should also respect and love a human being and your neighbor”.*

1937 A. D.

1937 A. D.: The Palestine Post reported that a large number of Jews had been attacked and beaten in riots in Memel, Shavli and Wilkomir in Lithuania. This outburst of anti-Semitism took place two years before the outbreak of World War II. This is an example of the inherent European anti-Semitism that helped to make the Holocaust possible and provided the Nazis with willing accomplices in completing the Final Solution.*

1938 A. D. In a speech before Belgian pilgrims, Pope Pius XI denounces antisemitism and says: “Spiritually we are all Semites.” His comments are reported in various newspapers but not in the Vatican’s L’Osservatore Romano.*

The Jews have led Europe and the world towards disaster, moral and economic disaster. Their appetite grows till only domination of the whole world will satisfy it.” Bishop Aksamovic of Djakovic teaches that “today it is the sacred duty of every citizen to prove his Aryan origins.” Meanwhile, Archbishop Aloys Stepinac of Zagreb preaches in a sermon that “it is forbidden to exterminate Gypsies and Jews because they are said to belong to an inferior race”.*

Nietzsche and The Nazi’s


A Personal View by Stephen Hicks, Ph.D.

DVD, Ockham’s Razor Publishing, 2006

Stephen Hicks is a professor of philosophy at Rockford College,Illinois.

This documentary looks like his philosophy students filmed it. Never the less is an interesting viewing. It is a ball buster, 2 hours and 45 minutes long. It is just Hicks talking to the camera with occasional photos a film footage. At times I drifted and had to watch it a couple of times to absorb it all.

It definitely offers a unique perspective of the history behind Hitler‘s socialistic interpretation of the Philosopher  Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra. He examines every phase of Hitler’s rise to the Fall of the Third Reich. He explains socialistic ideology and Catholic doctrine while defining Nietzsche’s existentialism interesting to viewers well versed in  philosophy and understandable for those in philosophy 101. I watched this with my teenage daughter and she walked away with new knowledge.

 It gets 5 stars.

Available on Netflix.

Constantines Sword


By James Carroll

This documentary blew me away. It is the most informative and comprehensive presentation and well researched I have seen. Masterfully presented with such conviction that I felt a pit in my stomach like I was at an exhibit in the National Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, which I visited with my daughter in 2010. I have studied the history of the Catholic Church and Jewish history including Hitler for 20 years. Reading anything and everything I can get my hands on. But Carroll taught me something new from a unique point of view. His remarkable life. I don’t question his integrity, sincerity, or his information. I am prompted to learn more of what he opened my eyes too. That in my opinion is what a good documentary does.

(Source Wikipedia) Carroll was born in Chicago, the second of five sons of late Air Force General Joseph Carroll, and his wife Mary.  At the time, his father was a Special Agent of the FBI which he remained until being seconded to, and later commissioned by, the US Air Force as an Intelligence Officer in 1948.  After this, Carroll was raised in the Washington, D.C. area and in Germany.  He was educated at Washington’s Priory School and at an American high school, the H. H. Arnold, in Wiesbaden, Germany.  He attended Georgetown University before entering St. Paul’s College, the Paulist Fathers’ seminary, where he received his B.A. and M.A. degrees.

He was ordained to the priesthood in 1969.  Carroll served as Catholic chaplain at Boston University from 1969 to 1974.  During that time, he studied poetry with George Starbuck and published books on religious subjects and a book of poems.  He was also a columnist for the National Catholic Reporter (1972–1975) and was named Best Columnist by the Catholic Press Association.  For his writing on religion and politics he received the first Thomas Merton Award from Pittsburgh’s Thomas Merton Center in 1972.  Carroll left the priesthood in 1974 to become a writer, and, in the same year, was a playwright-in-residence at the Berkshire Theater Festival.

I give this 5 stars.
