What's going on in the world today
An industry in India cheers Bush victory
This is a topic I recently got to see up close. My company has shifted all its production to factories outside the US. These past weeks I have been traveling the world to nations with cheap labor to inspect our products at these companies. It looks like this will be something very common in the next few years.
"BANGALORE, India--India's outsourcing companies were jubilant Wednesday that the elections in the United States will return President Bush to office.
"This is great news for the offshoring industry," said Nandan Nilekani, chief executive of Infosys Technologies, a software services company. The trend toward outsourcing will now become even more inexorable, Nilekani said."
Bible gives value to human life:
The LORD said to Moses, "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If anyone makes a special vow to dedicate persons to the LORD by giving equivalent values, set the value of a male between the ages of twenty and sixty at fifty shekels of silver, according to the sanctuary shekel; and if it is a female, set her value at thirty shekels. -Leviticus 27
Watch out Canada!
Leviticus 25:44 "Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves.” Thanks God!
Blog gets visit from Secret Service:
The administration decided to send the secret service to this blog after the owner decided to post some disagreeable content. Scary.
A better way to vote
Thank Zarathustra! Someone stole my idea of constituents voting for their three favorite candidates. For some strange reason they feel this should only be done in case of an unclear win, but I think the secondary votes should automatically be tallied and added to the count.
Here is the site
Save me Santa!
I’ve been thanking, what if Santa Clause IS real? What if all these years of not believing in him have just been pissing him off and making him cry? What if he returns on Christmas and says “Oh Sarah, I really wanted to give you gifts this year but you didn’t believe in me. Instead I am going to torture you forever.” That would be sad. I am now urging all of you to believe in Santa. Just believe! It is that easy. I have no proof, but I know one day he will return, soon, and when he does, you will all be sorry you didn’t believe in him and get great gifts. Santa loves you and works year round for your benefit.
Have you accepted Santa in your life today? If so, we want to send you a free packet of information on how Santa would vote in Tuesday’s election. This free packet is available to you for a small love gift of 30 dollars.
Ominous quote of the day
"I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it," President Bush said in his first news briefing since winning re-election
Bush then added, "Heh, that's not a microphone is it?"

Where in the World is ElvenSarah? (The all-American Entry)
Well I'm still out of the country, but it has been too long since my last entry so here goes!
God faces renewed "flip-flopping" attacks
This "God" fellow has always seemed shifty to me. Winace has uncovered more policy changes and lies by the icon with multiple personality disorder
Washington, D.C. - Satan, running for re-election as "Prince of this world" (John 14:30), again accused his Democratic opponent Jesus H. Christ of being "Lord of the flip-flops" Thursday.
On the campaign trail, the fallen angel met with legions of fawning Republican supporters. Always a master at public oration, the ancient menace described Jesus--and His running mate, God the Elder--as "out of touch with reality and the people." The Devil continued, running through a laundry list of Biblical contradictions and changes in official positions on the part of the two gods.
"Just look at Their campaign manifesto," declared the incumbent supreme ruler of Earth. "Have you folks even seen more position changes in one tome? I mean, first He, first this bozo wants to create a planet, then He regrets it and wants to destroy it?! You just can't excuse this, like changing your tie after looking in the mirror. This is people's lives we're dealing with, for His sakes!"
Dick Chemosh, the Devil's running mate, hammered home his leader's arguments with an otherworldly charm that stunned even long-time Democrats. "I've advised Dark Lords from Sauron to Satan, and let me be honest for a change: the last time I saw such inconsistency on a politician's part, I was pretending to be patron god of the Moabites. It doesn't end with the Flood. Are Kosher laws a good idea, or aren't they? Is salvation by faith alone (Romans 3:28), or is faith dead without works (James 2:17)? It just goes on and on!"
Among other examples cited by Satan's campaign, alleged inconsistencies on number and location of post-resurrection witnesses (Matthew 28:16, Galilee, vs. all the other gospels, Jerusalem); whether God does (Isaiah 14:21) or doesn't (Deuteronomy 24:16) support capital punishment of descendents for their parents' sins; "The Lord is... not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9) vs. "God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned" (2 Thessalonians 2:11-12); the differing accounts of creation in Genesis 1 and 2; and hundreds of other "flip-flops."
Fundamentalist Christians immediately logged on the Internet, drawing on centuries of apologetics to explain every single one of these Scriptural anomalies. More moderate believers were unimpressed, and simply denied Satan was attacking Jesus' official campaign manifesto, rejecting Biblical inerrancy and arguing for a variety of more nuanced interpretations.
"This is all very amusing," the Devil roared at his supporters. "Perhaps my opponent--and his followers--just can't keep a story straight... but then, why would you trust Him to rule in my stead?" Vice Prince Chemosh scoffed at the explanations, calling Christian efforts "clever but ultimately unconvincing rationalizations by those committed to believe at any cost." He grinned slyly as he added that, "for an omnipotent being, an unusual number of God's plans--like the global cleansing of evil via deluge--have been thwarted." He argued, and cited his own campaign to prove his point, that God's leadership in the War on Rebellion would be incompetent, exposing us to supernatural attack from other dimensions.
Scandalous revelations surfaced Tuesday when LordCo Centre WaterMocassins, shoes that inflate and allow the wearer to walk on water, were photographed in the closet of Jesus' Democratic Party Headquarters. Satan immediately went on the attack, hinting that the Messiah staged his most famous miracle.
Expert opinion on their authenticity was divided; Democratic analysts took issue with "the fact WaterMocassins were only invented in August 2004," but Republicans retorted time travel would be easy for God. St. Peter, campaign spokesman for the Messiah, vigorously denied the fraud charges, accusing Satan of "[an] embarrassing Photoshop job" on what he called "obviously doctored pictures." Chemosh joked "Well lookie here, He even wears flip-flops!"
"And its eyes were like lightning fires... She cast it away from her, outside that place, that no one of the immortal ones might see it, for she had created it in ignorance....And she called his name Yaltabaoth..."
- excerpt from the Shifty Gnostics advertisement, quoted from the extra-Biblical Apocryphon of John
Analysts agree that Christ's campaign, already suffering in the polls from prior accusations of dishonesty, can hardly afford to ignore these claims. This controversy comes on the heels of a now-infamous TV ad produced by a group calling itself "Shifty Gnostic Heretics for Truth." The ad, produced by a non-mainstream Christian sect from the same continent and millenium as Jesus, claims that contrary to His assertions, He never served as Supreme Ruler of the Universe, but was a bastardized and sociopathic creation of an entity that did. The Shifty Gnostics accuse Jesus Christ--and his alterego, YHWH--of being the illegitimate offspring of the real God and his often overlooked consort, Sophia.
Reaction across the mainstream Christian world was decidedly negative. Pope John Paul II, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I (spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians), Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and a bunch of nutcases no one cares about like Jerry Falwell issued a press release. They condemned the ad, calling it "One of the reasons we regret the Inquisition ever ended." They objected that none of the Shifty Gnostics, or their ancient leaders, were even in contact with Jesus during his earthly ministry. Even Muslims joined in the fray, issuing a Fatwa against Satan, who is suspected of helping orchestrate and/or financing the Gnostic attack. The ancient deceiver laughed off their solemn condemnation, saying "What are they gonna do, blow up a spirit?"
Jesus himself vehemently denied the ad's accusations, saying that His birth records--had they survived Jerusalem's destruction at the hands of the Romans in 70 AD--would put to rest all doubts about His ancestry. Representatives of the mysterious Gnostics were skeptical, and considered that "too convenient an excuse."

Excuses, Spies, and Election advice from abroad
Some information came my way that hinted at family members stumbling across my blog. That is why I was holding off posting for a while. I decided what was done was done and was all ready to post more, and then my company calls me to do some work outside the US. My travels where unexpected and will keep me from voting on Tuesday. Do me a favor and vote for your favorite candidate who is not a religious fanatic. Religious wars should not be the hallmark of humanity.

What would it take for you to say that your holy book was not the inerrant word of God? Let's look at a few scenarios:
1. Someone showed you a direct contradiction. E.G. Purple is evil and Purple is holy. Now if I told you that your holy book said this, you would automatically begin to find a way to dismiss this, and you would accept whatever excuse was given to you, no matter how bad the reasoning. Purple is holy unless you elevate it above god, then it is evil. "It doesn't make sense to us, because god is wiser than us." "God put that in there to test our faith." Excuses such as these can and have covered anything written in holybooks. When you are in war, your side is always right. Yes, you are both killing, but your side is killing to save innocent people. Hate is blinding, but when you drop the hate, and seek the truth you can see all sides with no bias. That is not possible while you are still defending your way of life. Here is a contradiction from a popular holybook in my country. Do you take a staff or not?
Mark 6:8 "These were his instructions: 'Take nothing for the journey except a staff-no bread, no bag, no money in your belts."
Luke 9:3 "He told them: "Take nothing for the journey-no staff, no bag, no bread, no extra tunic."
2. God came down from heaven and revealed the correct holy book and told you to follow it. You had been wrong.
"That wasn't god, that was satan. The bible says satan is beautiful and that is why that creature was so beautiful and powerful. That was satan trying to confuse us. God said in our book that we have the one true religion." You see, when you believe that it cannot be wrong, it won't be. When something is the standard of truth, it will never be wrong. You must first start with a level playing field, and then decide what is right. Starting off with an a priori belief and then investigating is merely self-fulfillment. You will see what you tell yourself to see.
Today's bible verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:21 "Test everything. Hold on to the good." There is some wisdom in that book.
Do you really believe?
Here is an interactive question. Imagine you have contracted a deadly disease. There is a cure, maybe an antibiotic, that will heal you. Do you take it, or do you pray and trust that if god wants you sick you will remain sick, and he will heal you if that is his plan? Is medicine circumventing god's will in your life? Before you answer that Luke, a friend of Jesus was a doctor, keep in mind that Luke never prescribed antibiotics. Also keep in mind that Jesus was close to prostitutes as well. That doesn't make prostitution right does it?
Here is something easier for you. You have a cold. Would you rather have someone pray for you, or would you rather have the cold medicine? The bible says you can trample snakes, yet you fear snakes. The bible says you will have bliss after you die, yet you fear death. There are those who really do believe though, they are called martyrs. Many Muslims truly have faith. Faith is the evidence of things unseen; remember? If that is the case, maybe the Muslims are right.
I would like to present a challenge. It is the one the prophet Elijah presented to the people to prove which god is more powerful. God enjoys the smell of burning things. He says so many times in the bible. Elijah knew this and used it to his advantage. Two altars were set up, both with wood and a bull placed upon them. Elijah bet that his god would send fire down from heaven and light his sacrifice and the god Baal would not be able to do so. He knew god would do this to prove to the people that he had all the power.
Any of you who believe your god can do this I challenge you. Can your god do this? Let me use the taunts that Elijah used: "Shout louder.... maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened."
So I bought a modem for my new apartment. I ordered it from New York. I am not in New York and it took nearly two weeks to get here. I finally get the thing set up after fighting with my cable company. (My former cable company never made me jump through so many hoops) I use the modem for about two weeks and it dies. By the time I trouble shoot it and find out it is indeed the modem, then get around to sending it back, it is day 31 of the 30 day warranty. The store will not take it back. I leave messages for Netgear, the modem manufacturer, and they refuse to get back to me. Netgear has pissed me off. I should have bought a Motorola in the first place. Just some advice for all of you. I have stacks of old computer parts. Most are too old to donate to anyone, but I hate throwing away a good motherboard. Such is life.
Well I am off to go see if my altar has been set ablaze yet by my god. Not sure who my god is, I guess whoever sets this thing on fire. I'll let you know when it happens. I have my marshmallows ready. Hey, put down that lighting rod! Cheaters.
Churches with lightning rods are showing a lack of faith

ElvenSarah reaches 6666; numerologist has spontaneous orgasm
1. Horny Christian teens find way to date heathen guys
Dating to Save People from Hell is one of the funniest sites I have seen all day. Anyone can be a missionary!
"Jesus told us to reach the "outermost parts of the world." I mean, I'm not going to fly to Kenya and date some guy who eats worms, but I think for me, "outermost parts of the world" means all the hot guys that live around me here in Fremont, California."
This has got to be satire; at least I hope it is. If not then it is probably the saddest thing I have seen all day.
2. Jaw dropping feat of medical science
Scientists in Germany grew a new jaw for a man who had his removed due to cancer. This was possible through the use of stem cells, meaning that here in the US, we cannot complete such a procedure. Just to be clear, no babies where hurt harvesting the stem cells; they came from the patient’s own body. Modern luddites, also known as the religious right, have associated stem cells with horrible pictures of baby harvests. That is just not the case. Read the story here.
3. Science lessons from the bible
How to make a sheep striped (Genesis 30:25-43)
In today’s lessons from the bible, we learn how to make polka-dot wool. The secret, according to ancient wisdom, is to have your sheep look at stripes while they mate. If they do this, their offspring will have stripes! So that explains it. So many great things in this book.
While you are reading this chapter you may also notice verse 27 says you can use divination to see if God loves you and is going to make you rich. For those of you unfamiliar with divination, this is the practice of reading anything from palms, tea leaves, animal entrails, etc. Now go at it!
Flat Earth Society
Apparently the world is flat and if you say differently then you are ignoring the evidence otherwise. This ancient wisdom is taken from the prophet Daniel 4:11 "The tree grew large and strong and its top touched the sky; it was visible to the ends of the earth.” Oh come on Sarah the Elven, that is obviously an analogy. Exactly, it is an analogy that only works with a flat earth! Why is god passing on information to humans that makes them believe the earth is flat? Shouldn’t god use an analogy that actually supports the truth? Later we have Satan showing Jesus all the kindoms of the world, from a really tall mountain. Another analogy? Is anything in this book actually a true story?

What were the creators of MLP thinking? Take a break from that heavy reading and researching and read this page. Also some more humorous t-shirts.
5. You too can work at the Elven Factory!
I worked until 2 am Friday. We need more employees and the big bosses know that. If you are looking for a job, this is your shot. We are hiring computer test engineers for our Quality Assurance Lab. Here are the qualifications:
Must have at least a four year degree in closely related field
Must have thorough knowledge of computers
Must not be an asshole.
No exceptions. Send me your resume if you are interested.
6. I’m healed!
Oh, was I ever sick last week. I was reading a blog by a guy with a sinus infection and I caught it. Must be more careful out there. Anyway I prayed to my pet rock and I am now feeling great! Pet rock never lets me down. Every time I have been sick I have gotten over it thanks to pet rock. I pray to pet rock before I go on car trips and just look, I have never died in a car accident thanks to pet rock. I have never died at all! Pet rock always answers all my prayers with yes, no, or later. Sometimes pet rock says no, but I am fine with that, since pet rock obviously knows best. I have always come through with its wisdom. Where would I be without my pet rock? Why would you deny the power of pet rock, you big meany!

Loosing my Family (Matthew 10:34)
My family visited last weekend. It may be the last time I EVER see them on good terms. You see, there is this book that was written long ago. I read it and realized it was fiction. They, on the other hand, are part of a cult that is based on a particular interpretation of the book. There are many of these groups, each believing they are the one reading the book correctly. The one thing all the groups have in common is a belief that any other book that does not call their book perfect, is out to destroy the world. Well, the book is not perfect.
Imagine the worst thing you could tell your family; something so bad that they will be horrified. They will scream, cry, be ashamed of you. The absolute worst thing I can tell my family is that I am no longer a christian. So why tell them you ask? Because I do not want to live a lie for the rest of their lives. I do not want to continue to promote what I believe to be morally reprehensible. In a family that is this fanatical, they know about your religious involvement. They ask where I am going to church. They ask about my walk with God. They ask about my point of view on subjects and want me to nod in agreement when they talk about the superiority of their religion. I cannot continue to go to church every week, clapping my hands at the charlatan on stage, and spending my time and money on something I do not believe in. It is killing me, but leaving will kill the relationship with my family and many of my friends. It may also kill my mother. It should not come down to this. Oh how it angers me that our religious society has set up this trap for my family. It will be absolutely terrible, but maybe I can pull a few persons to reason through it all. With such a great cost it is not wonder more people do not leave this institution. It is my hope that the next generation does not have to endure this crime against humanity. Fanaticism kills.
Ugh, Politics: A perspective from a fed up layman
I watched part of the republican convention and after vomiting up my stomach I asked myself, "Why do we need a president anyway". Having one person (man) in charge of an entire nation and being the mouthpiece for everyone seems absurd. Why not have a more complete representation of the populous? Any idea that cannot be decided by a national vote, should be decided by vote of an elected body. We already have this in place with congress, and it does offer more balance than the office of president. One nut jub gets elected and it can really fuck up the nation and world. One nut job out of 100 has less power. Of course I also have problems with our congress, but that is for another discussion.
Our system needs much reform. It has evolved greatly since 1776. One thing we must change is the way we nominate and elect individuals and the party system. We must elect our officials on a national level. One vote should be worth the same no matter what state you live in. The electoral college system was meant to protect us from the dumb populous but it does no such thing. In fact if it did, then why the hell would we vote anyway? I have ranted on that before so let's move to finance reform. (Remember, I wanted to get actual information on candidates such as voting records, written declarations on where they stand, etc instead of just a simple Dem/Rep)
Finance reform ideas: 1. All donations should be anonymous to the recipient. That way not one can be bought. Our leaders can not be puppets to the rich. Strict penalties must be in place for any candidate who willfully attempts to find who is supporting him/her. (Damn I hate gender-based pronouns) It should also be illegal for anyone to notify an official that they have donated money. 2. Money not specifically raised for a campaign should not be given to a party. That means the stock I purchase in a company should not be going to support a party. If the people who profit from that stock or corporation wish to donate then that is fine. Individuals should be the only entity that can vote and support a candidate. 3. A cap on campaign spending must be in place. It should not be a competition on who can dump the most money into advertising.

Erotica of the week:
Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled. - Ezekiel 23
Your stature is like that of the palm,
and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
I said, "I will climb the palm tree;
I will take hold of its fruit."
May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine,
the fragrance of your breath like apples,
and your mouth like the best wine.
Song of Solomon 7
A loving doe, a graceful deer-
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be captivated by her love.
This week's memory Verse:
"If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it." (Malachi 2:2-3)

Thank God for Air Conditioning!
God announced today in a press release that he has invented air conditioning. Reversing an earlier statement proclaiming everything good, God accepted responsibility for the scorching summer heat. "I realized that this was my bad, and I needed to do something about it, so I set off to find a way to bring cool air to my beloved pets. A short four thousand years later I thought up air conditioning. Well, actually I thought it up some time ago, but got sidetracked on releasing it. Again my bad."
A reporter from ElvenSarah tried to ask God why he didn't just change the climate, but was only able to get his answering machine.

If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church."

ElvenSarah: As seen on the Net
No, not that Net movie that made the Internet look like an evil, magical super computer that slinks into your home through your phoneline. I've been featured on the aptly named Guysfeaturedblogs site! Those guys are really tough on layout, and I got some points knocked off for that, but still managed to get 3.5 stars. Check out the review:
I need a banner for this site. All the cool kids have one; Xaos, Monica, Winston, Angela. "Oh, look at us! We have site banners, we are sooo cool!" One day I will have a site banner, and I will get to play with the cool kids. You will see. You will all love me then!
Satan has blessed me
I got the job I mentioned in the previous post. My mother told me that bible-god has blessed me with such a great job. I'm glad I finally found the secret action to get God to do so. You just have to leave christianity and rant about how foolish it is. Apparently god is not a fan of christianity. Here is one that should make me the winner of a small lottery. Christians are embarrassing. They are like grown adults who believe Santa Clause is real. They go around asking everyone else when they will stop hating Santa Clause and just believe. One day they come in to work with a book about Santa Clause as proof that he is real and loves everyone. They tell everyone they would be much happier if they just believed and can't understand why everyone would risk loosing all those presents come Decemberween. Christianity would be funny, except these people vote and create laws to appease Santa Clause. In 1954 they add Santa Clause to our money and edit our pledge to include a reference to everyone's favorite guy, Santa. When do the Buddhists or Muslims get to add their favorite guy to our money or force our children to pledge to him? No, that would be wrong.
Humans are just at the beginning of civilization. We are still afraid of the lightning in the sky and trying to appease the gods to make our crops grow. How can we have a society of research and advancement in such an environment? It is my great hope that in 100 years, the largest religion will be Deism or some other humanistic religion. The work of the gods is smaller than in the days when they made it rain and caused illness, but we are still not free of our superstition. Thanks to the internet though I believe many people now have an outlet to finally question our fear and predominant rituals of the last several thousand years.
To Be Continued ....
I have so much to rant about and so many thoughts sitting in my head. This was just a very quick update on some things I wanted to add. I wish I had the time to post everyday. It still would not be enough to get everything out. This week I have to finish projects at my old job, move 400 miles, find a new apartment, find a car, change over all my financial records, and start my new job on monday. Good thing I have Satan on my side!

Lyndie and I are good friends so I want to tell her story. First some shots of us together. Here we are together in the mountains near the Swedish ESO 15-m Submillimeter Telescope (SEST). I persuaded her to take the trip up there and we had a great time. This picture shows her giving thumbs up to her friend.
Here we are at a wedding for our buddy. Did we ever get drunk that night!
If you look closely you can see Lyndi giving the thumbs up to Nicole Kidman on her Oscar.
As you can see, she is a great person, and she was used. You need to understand, Lyndie has a habit of pointing. It is her thing; her trademark. The U.S. Army knew this and used her to take the fall. Lyndie doesn’t just point out things she likes, she also points out things that are morally wrong. She has strong character like that and tracks down things like a bloodhound. In her photo with the prisoners so was actually telling the camera that this is what is wrong! She was pleading for the world to make it stop! Why are we not going after the people who order this kind of thing instead of the grunts?
The big heart that Lyndie has, she continues on in her work and has given this site an award for pointing out the evils that must be corrected. I am honoured to receive the 2004 award for Pointing Out Stupid Things Everyone is Doing (Posted). Thanks again Lyndie. It is unfortunate that your excellent work is tainted with abuse and molestation charges; the very thing you have fought to stop.
Gene mutation makes tot super strong
Does anyone remember Bam! Bam! From the Flintstones? He was a super strong kid who could pick up his parents. Well it seems a genetic mutation has created a real life Bam Bam. This is a very interesting occurrence in the field of genetics. I can’t wait to see what is learned from this. Of course it is also a great study of modern evolution. Hopefully it is something that can be passed on to humans and keeps us very healthy.
Woman Arrested for Having Consensual Oral Sex
Oral sex is illegal in Virginia and is a felony. Apparently it is a crime against nature. Why is dumping poisonous chemicals into the environment legal, but making your partner feel good is a crime against nature? She was going to fight the charge, but it could have cost her five years in prison. Oh the laws in this country. Some of these stupid laws can even get you listed as a sexual predator, a status that is sure to ruin your life. Read this to get more of the insanity.
I have an interview next week and I am already nervous. I needed a job that was a bit more steady than the consulting business and something that provided benefits such as medical insurance. Maybe a set schedule will help me be more disciplined with my time and get more work done on my site. If I get this job it will be, by far, the best job I have ever had. The problem is I get so nervous during interviews and my brain locks. Times like these I still find myself in the old habit of praying. Heck, I would throw salt over my shoulder if it worked. Unfortunately those are all stupid superstitions. I just can’t let my low self-esteem get to me during the interview. I must show them what I’ve got. I’ll be staying up all night tonight to try to reset my sleep schedule so I can get up at 6 am next week. I usually go to bed around that time. This is going to be some week.
P.S. Congrats to Blogdrive for adding space to upload media, even though it only seems to be about 100k. Now I just need to figure out how to add permalinks.

ElvenSarah: Because philosophy tastes better in a sippy cup
What? A new entry? Fabtabulous!
Sorry for the delayitude. This week has been the crazy. I’m building a server for a company on a budget reminiscent of a seven year old child and of course they need it ASAP. Finding parts for a server in my farm town is about as easy as finding tractor parts in a deli in New York. That will probably be their next request. Last week I had to break into our own server since no one knew the password. I know you are all asking, why not buy the parts online? Well, their mommy won’t let them use the credit card.
Hope you are all enjoying the second half of summer and some of the longest days of the year. (Offer only good in northern hemisphere. Actual daylight may vary. “Longest day” does not imply actual addition of hours to day. ElvenSarah is not responsible for missed tans, scheduling conflicts, or dropping hot coffee on your crotch due to darkness. Consult local almanac for sunset and sunrise. ElvenSarah does not necessarily agree with any hidden terrorist message in almanacs.) Summer Solstice brings up a point I want to discuss; stupid lying scientists. So called “scientists” claim that the change in distance between a planet and the sun causes a direct change in temperature. We can take this further and get the reason summer is hotter than winter; the part of the earth tilted toward the sun is closer to the rays. This is completely wrong. Look at this depiction:
Now, the earth is 93 million miles away from the sun. Do you really think a couple hundred miles closer is going to add that much heat? No, of course not. The sun gets much closer to the earth when it descends below us to the underworld each night and when it rises again each morning. All true scientists have debunked the distance-heat theory and understand that this really is a miracle that goes against physics. Summer is warm because god predicted it would be in the bible. (Genesis 1:14, Ecclesiastes 3:1) Psalm 104:19 ”The moon marks off the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.” Case closed.
If scientists are this far off about summer, you know they are wrong on the evilution crap. Things changing? That's absurd! Now I have no idea what an allele is, but I know evilution is wrong. All scientists do too, but they just don't won't to admit the bible is always correct.
If you don’t understand it, Jesus did it
Why do people who have an injured back take pain medication, then thank Jesus for healing them when the pain goes away? I see this all the time. Oh, you survived the accident and came back to life after dying, thank Jesus. No thanks to the paramedic who did CPR on the patient until she recovered. If Christians really believed, there would be no doctors. If bible deity wants you healed and out of pain, then why not ask him? Jesus said "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done
for you by my Father in heaven.” Matt 18:19, et. al. Do you not believe the words of your saviour? Where is your faith now? If god didn’t heal you, then maybe he wants you sick. “2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” (James 1:2) I say that any Christian who goes to the doctor is circumventing the plan god has for their lives and calling god ineffective, thus blaspheming the power of god. Blasphemy is not forgivable, (Mark 3:29) meaning anyone who has gone to the doctor is going to hell.
Mines bigger than your's:
What makes you sure Christianity is the true religion? There are religions older than Christianity (and Judaism). There are religions just as big. There are religions with saviours who died to save humanity. There are religions with miracles. There are religions with people who believe they have a relationship with god and speak with it everyday. When you researched Christianity, reading the entire book before becoming a Christian, and reading all the alternatives, how did you decide on Christianity? No need to answer. I already know, but I think you need to ponder it.
I cast level 32 exorcism on you!
Why are Christians so afraid of the game Dungeons and Dragons? The cover story is that games such as ouija boards and role playing games cause little monsters to get inside you if you play too long. (BTW ouija is oiu, yes in French, and ja, yes in german, and was created by Parker Brothers, the maker of Monopoly) The real reason Christianity is afraid of DnD is because they know the game is much more fun than the game of Christianity. Sure the bible has spirits, ghosts, walking skeleton armies, zombies, fortune tellers, talking animals, witches, unicorns, fire breathing dragons, giants, half human-half angels, giant sea monsters, death riding a horse, spells, curses, polymorphism, and more (Seriously all those things are in the bible. I can give verses if asked), but it is so boring. Even with all that stuff. Have you ever read Leviticus or Numbers? DnD is a much better role playing game than Christianity. Both have people that can’t live in the real world and think they have magical powers, but at least one of the groups doesn’t pass laws on what they read in DnD books.
Eating Broccoli made illegal through Constitutional Amendment
Eating broccoli is disgusting! It makes me want to vomit. Eating broccoli in the privacy of your own home should be illegal and those doing it should not have the rights of other citizens. We must amend the constitution to insure this disgusting, vile act does not become a right! Oh and if you know your bible, you know that god hates shrimp
and god hates cheeseburgers as well. We must picket outside Long John Silvers! Those shrimp eaters have already taken a porn name for their restaurant! What more proof do we need? Damn you skeptics!
Sweet Daisy Dukes
Internationally known intellectual, Jessica Simpson, is slated to play Daisy Duke in the 2005 movie Dukes of Hazzard. Britney Spears seems to be the second choice. DoH was originally an early 1980’s television program showing the charming side of being a confederate racists. I know, all of you from the American south are yelling that the confederate flag, displayed prominently in the show does not equal racism. Well the swastika was around long before Hitler, but no one in their right mind is going to have the hero of the show have a swastika on their shirt. Let’s hope the movie keeps it out this time, to the aversion of the real fans I am sure.
Now that I’ve got you all hot and bothered thinking about a short, tight pair of Daisy Dukes, check out La Libertine
, the new sex blog a friend of mine is starting. I think it is going to be very interesting.
