God Thinks You'Re Stupidby William Russell Jacobs
It's a strange phenomena; the spirit's desire to experience existence as a mortal. The idea is counterintuitive to most of us - which is strange as well because most of us came here as spirits. The vast power of a spirit chooses limitation. I suppose that if we could choose to be limited in ability for a short time we might, but only for a short time.
This book assesses a true warrior within the world. The unknowing soldier's hopes, visions, and intentions are examined to determine if he shares God's dissatisfaction with the world. The story takes a look at one or two of God's creations, destine to die by their own hand. The soldiers are suspended in time and knowledge. Before they become aware of what has happened to them, they are examined to determine if their motivations within this world are worth defending - to see the genuine motivation that defines their actions. By knowing what they know, we see the true vision of humanity without the disingenuous haze that surrounds and compromises our existence. This is a dialogue between either a man and God or a man and madness - You decide.

Really - best ever. I wrote this book over the course of about 20 years. It started as a collection of writings on various topics that I would veer into usually during a college lecture (I'm a lawyer with two advanced degrees and 3 undergrad majors)... As time passed I realized that most of my musings/writings would have common elements - those being the contemplation of life (what it all means - defining our place in the universe sort of thought) and how those questions would be addressed by various players in the universe - not the least of which include God and Eddie Van Halen. I think that you will find this book entertaining, funny, sad, emotional, raw, & by my own admission a bit flighty (heuristic leaps here and there...). It is beyond all else an address to the generations that will follow - as the John Stuart Mill quote indicates, "If society lets any considerable number of its members grow up mere children, incapable of being acted on by rational consideration of distant motives, society has itself to blame for the consequences." I hope you enjoy my book - Bill Jacobs.
It's funny, romantic, and crazzzy... I loved reading about your love for your children, your wife, and your family. You make it very clear to have no proclamation as to the reason we're all here or where were going after...the honesty in that is breath taking in a world that so many believe, in the certainty of it all. I've always been a what, where, why, how kind of person, if there is no rational, I feel the need to keep looking.. somewhere along the pages in your book, I felt that it's okay not to have all the answers, and be good with that too...
