Stop the Comedic Jihad Against Christians!

Christians are the #1 target of comedians in the US, such as Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and I'm sick of it. They don't DARE go after Muslims. It is quite the opposite it is climate of PC and everyone is taught to respect Muslims and revile Christ ians in the public schools. The comedians are AFRAID of Muslims. They are cowards and intellectually dishonest. Christianity has gone through major reformation, Islam hasn't. Islam needs a MAJOR reform. This is 2010 not 710. Look how Christians and Jews are treated as second class citizens in most Muslim dominated nations. I just read article in NY Times how Iraqi Christians have virtually abandoned Iraq due to persecution. Funny thing is during Saddam Hussein reign no one bothered them!! This is what happens when Islamists are put in charge, the minority groups who are non-Muslim get treated like shit. And there is not great concerted worldwide media outcry over mistreatment of Christians and Jews by Muslims but i

Duel at Dawn

Katana blades Glisten in dawn's awakening Warriors bound by honor The world falls away Senses heightened Muscles coiled like vipers Ancient ritual Civilized barbarism Man is a wicked thing If one must die This is a noble path One lunges forward Tempered steel whistles A flick of the wrist And his fate is sealed The arterial spray Blankets the snowy ground Crimson droplets Poetry in motion A samurai falls But his soul is free

faith and reason

Posted a comment on Darlene Egelhoff's blog Wonderful blog post Darlene! I studied physics at Carnegie Mellon University (before my mental illness struck) and I *love* science. The great lie of the so-called New Atheists (people like the insufferably arrogant and condescending Richard Dawkins!) is that one must reject theism to be accepted as a rational thinker, to be a scientist. This is a ridiculous false dichotomy and it’s so sad so many young students are being indoctrinated into a binary view of epistemology where one must either reject reason and the modern world or embrace theism. There is nothing new under the sun, as Scripture says, and none of these “new” arguments are new at all. We Christians can use science and engage in scientific research without compromising our faith. As you echoed God gave us a mind to explore, to question, to ponder! Praise God. I personally do not see enough evidence for macro evolution, but as you said even if that is true it sh

The lie of materialism

I grew up poor but we were very happy so I never made a false link between money and happiness as, unfortunately, so many seem to do now. I never wanted to be rich, but as a kid there were certain things I thought it would be cool or fun to hav . e someday. The older I get the more I realize money and material possessions matter so little in the spiritual world which is the truest reality. That is why it irks me when I see such a huge emphasis on material status as a marriage qualifier (for the husband). There is a huge gulf between what we truly need and what we want. Our culture inundates us constantly with a message of materialism and compels us to embrace a hyper-consumerist lifestyle if we wish to be happy. And on the radio I hear those nauseating commercials that implicitly link the size of a diamond and a man's degree of love for a woman. What rubbish. There is no real difference between rates of divorce for Christians in America versus non-Christians (they may e

False prophets in modern American Christianity

Image
I just read an alarming article by Russell D. Moore which is an absolute must read for all Christians in America, "God, the Gospel, and Glenn Beck" . An excerpt: "Mormonism and Mammonism are contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. They offer another Lord Jesus than the One offered in the Scriptures and Christian tradition, and another way to approach him. An embrace of these tragic new vehicles for the old Gnostic heresy is unloving to our Mormon friends and secularist neighbors, and to the rest of the watching world. Any “revival” that is possible without the Lord Jesus Christ is a “revival” of a different kind of spirit than the Spirit of Christ (1 Jn. 4:1-3)." AMEN x INFINITY!! Yes, it is literally disgusting to watch this spectacle unfold. American "Christians" lap up the materialistic populism at the false prophet Beck's feet. Real, Biblical and effectual, revival means turning away from ALL sins, not just the ones that are popular in our prof

Quake Live medal munificence

Image
Two days ago I played in a Quake Live match and I scored a total of 35 achievement medals! An all time high for me. 15 Excellent and 20 Humiliations. And I led all players in the match in those two types of medals as well. w00t!

PhotoShop fun

Gauntlet Supremacy!

Image
I just bested my previous all time best gauntlet performance of a few hours ago of 17 with an epic 27 gauntlet kills! That is 27 of 45 frags so I played an entire full match and had 60% of my kills from gauntlet!! WOOOOOOOOOOO! I dare my fellow Quake Live players to best this feat (wink: Bany! hehe) ^_^ I also received 4 Excellent medals.

Gauntlet domination!

Image
I have achieved a new personal best using the gauntlet in Quake Live! 17 of my 32 frags (kills I inflicted) were with gauntlet - 53%! If you look under the "Hum" column (Humiliations - when you kill someone with the gauntlet) you will see it. I am player hyperyoda . WOO HOO! I also got 4 Excellent ("Exc") medals :) That is when you get two frags in less than 30 seconds.

My favorite game, Netrek , could use some more people searching for it on Google :)

A great Quake Live match!

Note the 9 Excellent Awards this is for killing 2 or more people within 1 minute.

To my friend Stefan on his happy day :)

Oh noble son of Austria Soon ye shall depart Onwards to Germany To study the highest art Days will pass swiftly And finally even years As you delve into mathematics Shed no tears Return one day you shall Most learned and astute To the glorious hills of Austria Welcomed by the lute -- by Zachary Uram, (c) 2010

GaGa - GagGag

Image
I'm so tired of seeing her CONSTANTLY seeking attention and dressing in these ridiculous outfits at her concerts. In interviews she talks about how she wants to focus on her music, fine go do that and stop this frivolous idiocy! Here is some proof of her artistic genius. Maddonna did all this before and it wasn't impressive or substantive when she did it. Behold the profound art of GaGa: How courageous of her to lampoon the Catholic Church. What courage it takes to do that in this age! What a joke. If she was really courageous and wanted to do some actual good she'd go after Islam, but we all know that will never happen. Here she is faux touching herself. Wow so edgy. She wants to project how SEXUAL she is. Great you are super duper sexual GaGa now can you stop stripping off in public every chance you get (even at baseball games) please? Covered in fake blood and growling like a rapid dog. Yes this is so edifying. Shooting sparks from her metallic cone bra. Thi

This is a shame. The wealth gap in the US has been increasing for a long time and now it is accelerating just as in China! Free trade has robbed the US alone of nearly 13-20 million jobs. Both parties seem equally greedy - whether George Soros or Warren Buffet. This culture of hyper-greed is pervasive in Wall Street and it's glorified in popular media.

What countries would you like to live in and why? :3

I'd love to visit Ireland, Poland, Slovakia, Germany, England and France since I have ethnic roots there. Definitely would love to see the Holy Land to see the famous Biblical places, be nice to visit Asia and see China and its rich historic culture, be neat to venture to Australia to see the rugged Outback, and I'd like to hear different pipe organs also in Switzlerland, Austria and France. And a stop at Italy for the amazing food :-) Ask me anything which is not profane, heretical, sexual, crude, lewd or rude.

"Ask me anything which is not profane, heretical, sexual, crude, lewd or rude."...That's no fun! Why make a formspring?

Formspring is Serious Internets! LOL~ Ask me anything which is not profane, heretical, sexual, crude, lewd or rude.

OUCH!

Elvis

Elvis is, IMHO, still the best. No other singer brought the incredibly high musicality, passion and soul into their music so consistently in a career spanning decades. Frank Sinatra comes close though. Fans of the recent movie "Kick Ass" will recognize this amazing medley, "An American Trilogy". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9saX9cF248 The finale is simply stunning, probably the best you'll ever see in pop music. This is from the famous live broadcast (first of its kind) special from Hawaii. Two more of more favorite selections. This is, "If I Can Dream", from his 1968 comeback special: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEO7uu1Pp8I Finally here is the most moving rendition of "Amazing Grace" I've ever heard. This is transcendent music! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3XdXEJEI4E Elvis gave himself wholly to every performance and I'll never forget him.
