Beyond Reason


Somebody has too much time on their hands at Google

I actually believed this at first.

Google Press Release: Toilet ISP
How to Install

However, in my defense, it was sent to me as true. After a whole day thinking this was true, I emailed the source of this – Is this true? He responds – No. I repond back – You jerk. (Just kidding about that last part.)

But truly, Google churns out the gags. A few years back, if you typed into their search “weapons of mass destruction”, it would pull up a “page not found”-looking page which said something like “these weapons can not be found” and went on to impugn Donald Rumsfeld and others. Very, very witty. Here’s another (make sure to read Step 21).

Google’s a very impressive company and they’re hiring like mad. Wish they would hire me. I could join their comedy department. One time I went to comedy school but class was a joke. That wasn’t very good… I know… just laugh.

I’m taking a break from blogging. Thanks for stopping by!

Worldview from a Different Angle

Posted in Blogging,Faith by Abigail on April 15, 2007

While I’ve had no intention of turning my blog into a forum on religion/philosophy, it has essentially been that*. To continue that path, here’s a blog which communicates positions opposite to what I adhere to. I find it fascinating and helpful. (Helpful in the sense that if you want your beliefs truly challenged, it’s best to talk to those who wholeheartedly disagree).

The truly interesting thing about this blog is that it is far less atheistic than it is anti-Christian. They may as well name themselves Anti-Christian instead of atheistic. Either way, the authors are often thought provoking and have excellent points.

Several other interesting things are that 1) you’ll hear more passages of the Bible quoted on their site than mine (I don’t think I’ve quoted any) and 2) many of the questions they raise are deeply theological questions. They are excellent questions! I wonder if the church in general has done a poor job communicating that 1) these difficulties exist and 2) there are good answers.

*Some day, this blog will turn to matters like politics, technology, economics, history, more history, and the like. Just haven’t gotten there yet.

Never Too Late to Post

After several of you posted fabulous responses to some of my posts, over a month ago, I have responded. Finally! Sorry for being a slacker. Well, I didn’t slack – I’m busy. Taking pictures with Stormtroopers.

I responded to “Definitions” and “Watching my Favorite Argument Disappear” (and “Christening…”).

Steve G H – do you have anything else to add to your political theories post? I was really hoping to hear a response!! If you stop by again, I am listening. (I have developed no such political theories as you obviously have.)
