Comment of the day? How about comment of the year!

Someone anonymously commented on the post about my cousin’s wedding here. So I’m going to give them a WHOLE post of their very own. Congratulations, anonymous! You win the PRIZE!!!

He or she said:

I think it is completely inappropriate that you would post what you said about Morgan and her family. I hope you realize that you are posting this on the internet and anybody can read this. Talking about Kara & Scott being alcoholics in their past is none of your business and it is most definitely nobody else’s business. Therefore you should not be writing about it on the internet for the world to see. & I personally take offense to what you said about Christians. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t have the proper Christian up bringing, but that doesn’t mean that all Christians were brought up that way. You should not judge other people when they state they are Christian just because of your views of Christianity. I find it really sad that you haven’t found a true relationship with God, & I hope someday you realize that being a true Christian is totally different than how you have described it. I will pray that you find your way to God and form a personal relationship with him. You truly are missing out on how amazing it is.
God Bless.

Oh, man, that hurt so good! Come with me as I respond to this anonymous person. Strap in, it’s going to be a fun ride!

Stephen Hawking says what we already knew

This article is rolling around like a steam train today. I thought I’d repost it here.

In the new work, The Grand Design, Professor Stephen Hawking argues that the Big Bang, rather than occurring following the intervention of a divine being, was inevitable due to the law of gravity.

In his 1988 book, A Brief History of Time, Hawking had seemed to accept the role of God in the creation of the universe. But in the new text, co-written with American physicist Leonard Mlodinow, he said new theories showed a creator is “not necessary”.

The Grand Design, an extract of which appears in the Times today, sets out to contest Sir Isaac Newton’s belief that the universe must have been designed by God as it could not have been created out of chaos.

I’m struggling with what you’re trying to say

Usually I would send this over to Julie at AatRB, but I had to keep this one. Here’s a screen cap of a friend’s facebook update:

Mind you, I grew up with people saying religious things almost constantly. And I still hear a lot of it when I visit NC, aka the Yeshua Fog™. Even while I was a Christian, I often wondered about god’s silence. I would ask myself, “How is the creator of the universe this thing that we revere as the awesomest being ever, and yet he’s the quietest thing you’ve never heard from?”
