SERMONS #25 – The Silence of the Lambs (9/28/22)

29:56 – The death squads of the gods fan out across Egypt, finally convincing Pharaoh to release the Israelite slaves, who have stocked up on borrowed goods that they have no intention of returning. (Is that any way to treat thy neighbors?) The ensuing blood bath is enough to make Dave in Kentucky consider pollo-pescatarianism. How many children of Israel set out on the Exodus? Did they leave from the city of Rameses, or from Avaris? And what’s so special about unleavened bread?

SERMONS #24 – Escalation of Hostilities (9/14/22)

30:31 – When their “Domino Theory” of ecological disasters fails to produce the desired results, the Yahweh Elohim resort to chemical weapons and weaponized weather modification, fittingly resulting in plagues on a Biblical scale, but Pharaoh still refuses to free the slaves. Just who was this stubborn Egyptian king? By piecing together the historical, Biblical and scientific records, Dave thinks he has found the answer.

SERMONS #23 – Ecological Dominoes (9/1/22)

30:00 – A series of ecological disasters ostensibly designed to convince Pharaoh to release the Israelite slaves into Yahwelian custody only serves to strengthen Pharaoh’s resolve to keep them under Egyptian rule. But of course Jehovah El-Sadday knew all along that this would happen, so he has kept a few surprises in reserve. Also: Was Moses’ reluctance to engage in public speaking due to a speech impediment?

SERMONS #22 – Let My Extras Go (8/20/22)

29:59 – The hologram in the “burning bush” gives Moses a mission, should he choose to accept it: to go to Pharaoh and demand the release of the Hebrew slaves so they can serve the Yahwelians instead. Moses is provided with the gadgetry and passwords necessary to complete the assignment, and is teamed up with his slick-talking brother Aaron, who serves as his mouthpiece. Once the hologram self-destructs, Moses applies for and is granted leave by his employer and father-in-law, His Excellency the Priest of Midian. Moses packs up the family, loads them on the family ass and heads back to Egypt, but along the way a near-fatal encounter with a Yahwelian results in spousal conflict and genital mutilation. Then when Moses and Aaron present their demands at Pharaoh’s court, Pharaoh not only refuses to release the Hebrew slaves, he increases their workload out of spite. Oy vey!

SERMONS #21 – Bull Rushers & Bush Burners (8/11/22)

29:56 – A new book of the Bible, a new theme song, but the same old host. Dave in Kentucky begins his exposition of Exodus. Topics include Egyptian Replacement Theory, Habitat for Midwives, Hebrew Lives Matter, Egyptian Lives Don’t Matter, Hebrew-on-Hebrew Crime, the degradation of holographically reconstructed patterns, and the effect of time dilation on the lifespans of the gods. Plus, in a look back at Genesis: How Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt.

SERMONS #20 – Eden Reconsidered (7/30/22)

30:16 – If you think the Garden of Eden story in Genesis 2 through 4 is just a fairy tale, think again. And listen again, because Dave in Kentucky got it wrong the first time around, and corrects the record with this episode, revealing the location of the garden, the real reason man was created, and perhaps most surprising of all, the identity of the serpent. (It ain’t the devil.)

SERMONS #19 – Hebrew Speedwriting (7/11/22)

30:28 – How did the lack of vowels in ancient Hebrew writing lead to mistranslations and mispronunciations? Were the Hebrew patriarchs morally upright, or were they just a bunch of hooligans? Was their morality (or lack of same) determined by their environment, or was it in their DNA? How might German translators have contributed to the mispronunciation of Biblical names? These and other questions are asked and answered as we peruse the final chapters of Genesis, covering the last days of Jacob and Joseph.

SERMONS #18 – The Road to Serfdom (7/2/22)

30:02 – Is the universe teleological, or merely logical? Who or what was the Gnostic demiurge? Did Egyptian cattlemen conduct range wars against Hebrew sheepherders in the Land o’ Goshen? Did Ancient Egypt suffer hyperinflation due to too much silver chasing too little bread? How can people with livestock aplenty suffer from a famine? (No, they weren’t vegan.) Was there an Agenda 2030 B.C.? These and other questions are asked and/or answered as the epic story of Joseph continues.

SERMONS #17 – The Prepper Gene (6/17/22)

29:57 – After bringing in the sheaves throughout seven years of plenty, during the following lean years Joseph gradually releases surplus grain from the Strategic Corn Reserves. Word reaches famine-stricken Canaan that Egypt has plenty of food, so Jacob sends ten of his sons there to buy some, where they fail to recognize Joseph as their long-lost brother. He recognizes them, but he doesn’t let on. Instead he accuses them of being spies, frames them for theft, lets them cool their heels in jail for a few days, then releases nine of them but holds one hostage until they return with their other brother, Benjamin. Paybacks are hell.

SERMONS #16 – Dream Weaver (6/3/22)

30:05 – Joseph interprets the dreams of Pharaoh’s butler, Pharaoh’s baker and Pharaoh himself, and gives such accurate readings that he is not only released from prison; he becomes Pharaoh’s second in command and immediately launches a major government project to deal with a predicted catastrophe.  Soon to become a major motion picture in an alternate timeline.  Scenes include: “Take me, Mandingo,” “Pharaoh’s corn,” “’E’s an ‘Ebrew,” “I Married a Sun Worshipper,” and “Wouldn’t you like to be a prepper, too?”
