Woke up with a headache this morning which wouldn’t be so bad except I didn’t have a drop last night and fell asleep around 10.
So I’m starting the year with a bit of a headache, some low dose asprin, no job, a new mortgage, my kids college fund down half its value 5 months before he graduates, a house that needs cleaning before Saturday, and a house full of people due in 54 hours (which means my wife will be in panic mode for the next two days).
Of course things are not so bad, I have my health, the family is well, her sauce is in the fridge, the oldest has been accepted to one college and looks like his hard work will pay off with some serious financial help.
One nice thing about thing starting the year in a bit of a hole is that you are bound to climb out of it.
So welcome to the year 2009 AD and a happy new year to all.
And Yes I typed AD not “Common Era” or “Before Common Era”, common era refers to the common time scale used and what marks the use of that “common era”? Why the birth of Christ!
It’s another cheap trick to deny history, I don’t seem anyone in a rush to call Thursday day 5 because they don’t want to say “Thor’s” day.
You know there are a lot of what I like to call “indirect proofs” of Christianity. Little things that indicate something funny. The obsession some people have with removing Christianity from sight is rather amazing particularly when they don’t have that same obsession with Islam or Buddhism or Hinduism or even Judaism.
Why such venom at only one target? Why even be bothered by something that one believes is a myth?
And even within the Christian community is a protestant goes from one denomination to another there is hardly an eyelash blinked, but if one converts to Catholicism its a big fuss.
Why be so angry when an atheist converts?
Interesting questions over the year I’ll talk about it more.
Anyways a happy new year to all.
