I had a roommate few months ago, she worked at the massage parlor. The massage they gave was pretty good, a bit expensive for me though. The lobby room of the massage parlor was decorated with idols, and the idols were decorated with flowers, candles, food and incenses. One day I saw her preparing to go to work and I noticed there was a toy (remote control car toy) sticking out of the bag. I asked her “Did someone had a baby?”, she said “No, this is for a baby spirit.” I said “Baby spirit?”...
The Truth About Melchizedek
Here is a column which I consider will crack under the building of Christianity. Who was Melchizedek? This man was a pagan Canaanite king, who happened to be the king of Salem, ancient name for Jerusalem.
Abram had just returned from a battle with five kings, and, on his way to Beersheba, he paused in Jerusalem for a repast. He and his men were tired and weary of the military campaign. Melchizedek, afraid perhaps that Abram would take on him too and conquer...

I'm giving a review plus sample quotes from the book.
Overall this is a Creationist book but of a different stripe than what I am used to seeing. It is both a theological work with a particular spin on Genesis and a review of the state of the current Creation vs Evolution disagreement. He discusses a lot...
Part of the truth of a theorey is in its effect of people and how they behave. Evolution was used by Nazi's to justify what they did. I believe we can all agree that social darwinism is false, no matter if evolution is true or not, a government has no right to decide who is fit to survive or not survive.
If you look at the Torah, the Hebrews were not "fit to survive." Even Moses under inspiration of God said that "I did not choose you because your were the mightiest people, or the greatest...

Here is a snippet from my home state of VA:
Over 130,000 jobs created, that was a surprising statistic to me for my state. How does yours stack up? Share them here!
I noticed that some people change their religion/belief like two-three times a year. Is it good or bad, in your opinion? What would you think of them, or would you think anything of them specifically for this? Do you think it implies anything?
I personally don't have problems with them and care for them like any other, but this kinda makes me feel uneasy about it as a practice.
