Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

God and fear and darwin and light and discernment, and a lens


I’ll leverage my recent post: it’s the rule if not the Law as my inspired preamble for this particular post. And, of course a historical archive of prior thoughts with which you are likely familiar (if not particularly fond of), as well.

To wit…

I’m confident God inspired Darwin, and discernment – in one formed result, or another, proves their collaborative point.

Our recognition of God was born of an ultimate fear – and, realized, always, in our DNA. The application of using fear as a tool for survival is a further demonstration of Darwin’s views – depending on the quaility of light and the requisite lens.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

drink heartily from that cornucopia of Fear


I won’t end here. Possibly, it begins here. A rage of debate, hidden beyond the comments section of that post would certainly suggest so. And, where, my point begins it’s journey.

It can be easy, possibly preferred, to forget how dark the darkness, the bleakness of fear, can be.

And, we often forget, too, it’s terrible smell, like the stench of rats, the odor of suffering.

Fear is the mind killer, seated deeply in the unknown. Dread freezes our heart.

Don’t read too much into this post reader. Or, dare to do so. It might just mean shedding light on the self, the untried, the untested, a weakness.

This is an exercise in assigning words that might read pretty to a feeling that is ugly. To recognize what we don’t like, so that it can be replaced with what we want or dare hope for.

Discernment? A replacement for ignorance?

And, this is a reminder, or perhaps a hopeful lesson that, if and when, we steel ourselves to face our fears – be they great or small, and take a leap (possibly of faith), a step, a chance… Trying never represents the Kobayashi Maru. We can emerge from the experience in a new light, outside the gloom of uncertainty that is the torrid companion of fear, and know, then, what we are made of.

Peace be to  my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
