Geekologie – The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth

Author: Frank London

Although, I wasn't bullied at school, I used to feel sorry for those considered geeks that were. I secretly envied the geeks intellectual ability and pointed out to the bullies that the geeks will end up earning more than them and living a more fulfilling life because of it.

My character was somewhere in between. I looked like a thug and had a temper so was left alone but enjoyed all things technical. The digital age was just beginning when I was a teenager. We had Commodore 64's but no Microsoft Windows as yet so Bill Gates was still just another geek with an idea. He doesn't appear to be a geek now, does he?

If you look at all the great science fiction movies and novels, you will find very cool leading men and women. Captain Kirk always got the girls and was a great leader with a strong and great character. Even Mr. Spock received more than just a little attention from the female crew members and with that many people a long way from home, I'm sure he would have got a little attention from some of the male members too. Both characters highly scientifically minded and probably both the ultimate cool geek.

Films like Star Trek and especially Star Wars have improved the image of Geekologie without realising that they were doing so. All the characters in these two great epic movies would not be considered geeks, nerds, dweebs, dorks or gimps would they? Because being a techy or having a science degree is cool now. Whether we like it or not those more adapt at science and technology will thrive and those that cannot or will not embrace the digital age will crash on the super highway.

My son has used a computer since he was just over two years old and learns very quickly and he isn't one of these super talented children but a product of modern times and being exposed to technology at a young age. This is evolution and necessary for the future of mankind. He and his generation will not be called geeks as they will excel and play their part in the future of this planet through science and technology.

Margaret Thatcher had a chemistry degree and became Prime Minister of Great Britain, but this wasn't her greatest achievement. Oh no… her greatest achievement was discovering how to put more air in ice cream and inventing the soft Mr. Whippy ice cream that we all enjoy the world over. Go Maggy!

So if you are a fan of technology and all things digital, you should be proud and remember Geekologie is the future. I believe and this is my personal opinion only, the ‘Sermon on the Mount' was misreported and what the Lord really said was "Blessed are the geeks: for they shall inherit the earth", Matthew 5.5. If you take the psalms and change meek to geek it makes a lot more sense.

So… if you are hiding your geekiness, be proud and rejoice in the fact and remember: "But the geek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." Psalms 37:11
