My name is Spencer (formerly known as Dr. Paleo Ph.D.).
I am many things. I'm a 22-year-old, Bible-believing Christian. I trust my savior Jesus Christ above all else, and strive to follow Him unceasingly. My soul is that of the warrior's, and I seek to fulfill my duties as such. I am science-minded, and am pursuing a career in dinosaur paleontology.
I am for my God, and His Word, the Holy Bible. I am for the literal six-day interpretation of the Creation account as found in the book of Genesis. I am for my country and its military, and I will give my support to those who defend this nation and its people, even if it means that we are forced to wage war. I am for homeschooling, the rights of parents and the unborn, the Biblical family, and courtship. I am for the rights of gun owners, and believe in carrying. I am for martial arts, and advocate the study of those means necessary to protect the family, the faithful, and the defenseless. I am for the dying ways of chivalry; "Women and Children First!" is a creed well worth dying for. I am for conservatism, and did I mention that I'm also a states' rights Confederate flag-waving Rebel?
This is me.
Welcome to my blog.
"Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. Captain, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." --Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson

"Never give in—-never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." --Winston S. Churchill

I don't know about you, but this one looks pretty exciting to me! (Sans Timberlake and what appears to be possible sex scenes, of course.) I'm loving the idea of time as money--works well for a dystopian story, one of my favorite genres of all time. I could see this potentially coming about, in small ways (likely never as completely as in this piece, but then again, that's my usual approach to all dystopias--I tend to believe a little of each of them is soon coming).
One, I loved the director's other film Gattaca (which, by the way, everyone should see as it's a chillingly accurate vision of the future), and I also enjoy Cillian Murphy's work (and do I see a leather trench?). I also see in this trailer a small view of the future (as something seems to be imbedded in their arms). A day will come when we have no IDs, no cash or credit cards, no papers; it will all be installed on a little chip that is inserted in the body (likely on small children, perhaps even infants at birth). This chip will also surely serve as a tracking device, and, who knows, perhaps a form of control as well (I'm thinking perhaps some sort of stun or a nervous system shutdown option, just to make it easier for them to come and "apprehend" you if they so choose).
But just about any new dystopia is something I'll check out, pretty much. What do you guys think?
