Suppose the headline was “Town denies a Christian church…”

Suppose the headline was “Town denies a Christian church…” Just saying – just saying! – replace the word Muslim with Christian in this statement and tell me that people wouldn’t be flippin’ out yelling “WAR ON RELIGION!!!!” “A Georgia town has rejected a request from a neighborhood Islamic group for the right to rent a local retail space for worship services, frustrating local Muslims looking for a place to pray and sparking debate over theLearn More

Possible Pyramids Discovered From Space : NPR

Yet another of the many reasons I <3 science: By studying infrared images taken by NASA satellites, Sarah Parcak and her team from the University of Alabama at Birmingham identified the suspected pyramids in Tanis, Egypt. The ancient city, abandoned centuries ago, is famous as the fictional home of the Lost Ark from the Indiana Jones movies. Satellite images also showed other lost structures, like tombstones and houses, buried for thousands of years. via PossibleLearn More

Neil Gaiman’s Introduction To Doctor Who

There’s a big blue box.  It’s bigger on the inside than the outside. It can go anywhere in space and time, sometimes where it is supposed to go.  Something will go wrong, and there’s some bloke called The Doctor who’ll make it all right because he’s awesome.  Now sit down, shut up and watch Blink. via Neil Gaiman’s Perfect Introduction To Doctor Who For New Viewers – Bleeding Cool.

All good things must come to an end… NTiR

I started this project in April 2010. I finished in December of that same year. Eight full months dedicated to reading the New Testament and then writing down my thoughts for the world to see. I have to admit that I have come away with a slightly different view of Christianity. It was very enlightening to read through the entire story of Christ starting from Jesus’s birth. It was illuminating to see how the storiesLearn More

The end is here! (New Testament in Review)

Those of you who read my last entry will realize that we have reached the end of the New Testament. For better or worse, this project is just about finished.  I started reading and reviewing the New Testament in April 7th of this year (2010) and I will put a capstone on this project this coming Tuesday, December 28th, 2010. Just in time to ring in the new year! I am going to take aLearn More

One resurrection, two deaths and a thousand years – Revelation 20-22

We have arrived at the end of the universe, at the end of all things, and the creation of the new Heaven. At the end of Chapter 19, Christ led heaven to a final, climactic battle with the armies of evil. The White Rider trampled all enemies, and banished both the Beast and the Anti-Christ to the lake of fire. One might wonder what is there left to do? Evil is vanquished. Doesn’t that meanLearn More

Babylon is about to get fucked up – Revelation 16-19 (NTiR)

It is getting harder to keep track of what is happening in Revelation. Everything seems to happen again and again. Angels unleashing major carnage on the earth. The sun and moon first turning black as cloth, then red as blood, then green as cheese. Or something like that. All I know for certain is that God is letting an eternity’s worth of wrath loose upon the earth, and mankind is getting screwed. Take the trialsLearn More

The anti-Christ and the Beast – Revelation 12-15 (NTiR)

Once upon a time, back in my wild younger days, I had an actual alcohol-induced hallucinative episode. I blacked out, but continued to function. My friends said I left the apartment we were in, ran to the park across the street, then started climbing up a hill. I was yelling that I had to get to the top of the hill so I could greet spirits that had come to save earth from its destruction.Learn More

Angels can be bad-asses! – Revelations 9-11 (NTiR)

One theme in the book of Revelations is the importance of the holy numbers. Threes and sevens are littered throughout the book. Three angels. Seven seals. Seven trumpets. John wanted to make sure that we knew divine numbers are in use here. Expect many more instances of the divine numbers, and we’ll be adding in twelve to go with them soon. In the previous chapters, the destruction of earth begins. And then begins in aLearn More

The Four Horsemen of the apocalypse – Revelation 6-8 (NTiR)

There are a few theories tossed about regarding why, exactly Revelation is so bizarre. Some of my favorite theories are: John was stoned out of his mind John was extremely drunk, or had sobered up and was having the DTs John was starving/dehydrated during his imprisonment and banishment, and his fevered brain pulled up a number of hallucinations. Whatever the true source, Revelation is one hell of a trip. Chapter 6 The seven seals areLearn More
