Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Does Drumpf really want a trade war?

Dear Friends: With the war of words continuing in the trade battle between the United States and Canada maybe Don the Con Trumplethinskin should look at this map of who is the largest trading partner for each State and then decide if he really wants to cut off his nose to spite his face!

The way I see it anyway!

God is in the eye of the beholder!

Dear Friends: Since its Sunday we have a quiz for you: 

What would you say if you saw this stranger on a bus?

Well, if you’re Christian, you might say he’s God.


Psychologists from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill surveyed 511 Christians in the U.S. and, based on the participants’ combined perceptions, this is roughly what they thought God should look like.

From the pages of Discover magazine:

By Lacey Schely:
The team, led by Joshua Conrad Jackson, showed the volunteers 300 pairs of random faces. For each pair, people were instructed to flag the face they thought looked most like how’d they picture God. Afterward, participants completed surveys inquiring about how attractive the participants felt, their political leanings, gender and age. Finally, the team combined the participants’ picks into a single composite image.

Political leanings also influenced people’s perceptions of the man upstairs. Liberals imagined God as younger, kinder and more feminine, while conservatives thought he was more likely to be Caucasian and powerful. “These biases might have stemmed from the type of societies that liberals and conservatives want,” says Jackson in a press release. “Past research shows that conservatives are more motivated than liberals to live in a well-ordered society, one that would be best regulated by a powerful God. On the other hand, liberals are more motivated to live in a tolerant society, which would be better regulated by a loving God.”

And even though liberals were more likely to conjure up a more feminine version of the Almighty in their heads, the researchers didn’t find any biases in how the volunteers saw God’s gender: Both men and women equally thought of God as a man. Sorry.
Well, I don't know about you folks, but I've seen God twice and although he looked different both times I've got pictures of Him!!!!!

Let's have a hand for Melania.

Dear Friends: As I have mentioned before on these pages while I dislike, and even detest the things being don by Don the Con............., my heart goes out to Melania Trump because she has no other choice but to wait in the background and "grin and bear it" no matter what comes her way!

I guess I'm just being an old softy but when I think of all the embarrassment and and pain that I imagine her situation is causing her I think she should be the one getting the "Nobel Peace Prized" for keeping the peace in that family!

Anyway, my heart goes out to her!


Sunday Morning Funnies about the Canadian Wall!

Dear Friends: With all the illegal immigrants now crossing the Canadian border to get away from conditions in the States your humble reporter proposes that we put up our own "wall".............!

 

Now in typical Canadian fashion we should put up a "Privacy Hedge" along the entire 5000 mile (8000 km) length of our mutual border with the States and then place access points every few miles to better process the people attempting to make this land their home! (We don't want to make it too easy for them so the gates should be in the form of a maze instead of all that stuid paperwork!)

 

As far as water crossings like in the Great Lakes we can put in those lane markers like they have in swimming pools so everyone knows where the border is!

That should keep everything under control!
