Just got a bunch of books from Borders and B&N... mum got some books for her, and I finally snagged a copy of Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T. E. Lawrence(Yes, E.... can't believe I didn't catch that in my old blog entry. And they give me a wand, can you believe that?)
Also got a nice thick book on the inquisition... fun. Should be enlightening at least.
Looking forward to tearing into them... :drools:
Been a while since I dropped in here so I thought I should sneak in and write something.
I'm not really fond of the direction Ex-C has taken lately... I'm trying to write out a post that explains where I stand and why I think it's wrong - and harmful.
Along the way I had a very nice oppertunity to take a look at some of the editors that come with Linux... I have fallen madly in love with GVIm. Wonderful editor, really powerful and I'm just scratching the surface... It takes a bit to le
It drives me up the wall.
I just typed a reply to a thread asking if Jesus ever masturbated.
Not only is the answer blatantly obvious--he is supposed to have led a SINLESS life--it is very easy to get around, even if you assume he didn't just let his divinity override his natural impulse--it feels like it's just taking an oppertunity to piss on a symbol just because you can now.
I respect that reverence for christian symbols is not something they are interested in at all, but cont
Been feeling rather contemplative.
Friend of mine just made a post about how he 'debates' christians. It was a mind-blowing demonstration of not only the wisdom of his beliefs but how effective they can be.
Trying to convert Eric would be like trying to dent wool... you can use a sledgehammer all you want, but as soon as the head is removed from the wool it resumes it's shape. The only way to reshape it would be to weave each thread into a new piece of fabric... something no soul hunte
I really like how that sounds... very earthy and wiccan. The image of a bright light(of hope as I see it) and a nice serene brook is very idealistic and powerful for me. You could say it's also the meeting place of all four elements... another cool thought.
I need to store that in my sig or somesuch... it's just too good to let it be buried in the forum and blog history.
Again, I have been remiss with the blog... had a nasty case of the flu, so at least this time I have an alibi.
It's a little embarassing to look at my last post... I was really riled. I wonder if that is why no one is reading this... much less commenting.
On a related note, I met someone who shares my view on Ruiner... the last verse in particular.
Strange comfort... but a comfort nonetheless. I'm a weird kid anyhow lol.
Found a very nice bible at the library bookstore... Both old and new testaments, as well as the Apocrypha.
The Bible: Complete with deleted scenes!
Phew. Don't think I should look too closely at TFN... a lot of the threads scare me. Yes, scare me. One can't help but wonder how far we've come since the Crusades. Makes it hard to get up in the morning, let me tell you.
Maybe that's what I should say. "I don't fear Death, I don't fear Damnation. If that is my fate, so be it. If I am to be damned for knowledge, so be it. No, what scares me is a life spent with you holding the reigns. Damnation, to me, is letting the ignorant, the blind, th
Well then. First post on my first blog. I haven't spent much time reading these things, so I don't know exactly what I'm supposed to do here.
I suppose I should start with what I'm doing. Just sitting around at the moment... started this blog on a whim in fact. I'll probably be browsing the other blogs on the forum... see how other people do it.
Waiting on an email from a good friend of mine... I haven't heard from her in a while and I'm getting a little worried.
Beyond that, I'm
