We're outa here!

 - Brian


Hey y'all, on Sunday, Joe, James and I are going to a Catholic boys' camp for a week. Until then, it's up to the other members of Blog Hogger to update this thing.

Before I depart, I'd like to reference you to some other blogs/sites you can hang out at while we're gone:

Saint in Training: This blog is updated by the first person to comment on any of my blogs. On this blog, Daiko posts about her personal status. She also link to some pretty cool sites.

Green Flash: awesome blog. Green Flash contemplates Catholic teachings and such. Very informative -- go check it out.

Combat Madness!: The coolest flash game ever created. Pretty violent, but still a lot of fun. I liked this game so much that I actually downloaded the source code for it so that I could familiarize myself with the code you use to make flash games.

Dogsnot.net: One of my favorite blogs. Gordon and Geoff link to interesting news articles and give their humorous opinions on them. Although I don't agree with the Dogsnot guys on everything, they sure provide solid blog material. WARNING: if you are a profaniphobe, be careful. Gordon and Geoff can cuss up a storm. C'mon guys, do you seriously kiss yo' mamma with that mouth? j/k :)

Stick Page.com: A cool collection of stick oriented flash games.

I'm outa time, so see you next week!

Biscuits on Schiavo

 - Brian


I f[*]cking hate dogmatists.

Absolutism carries the burden—no, the requirement!—of Being Right all the time. Every time. No exceptions. That's the rule.

And when you actually are Wrong, what do you do? You hedge, you change the nature of truth, and you claim Truth Once Again.

Bill Frist is on record and on tape as having watched a video of Terri Schiavo and concluding that there was no evidence that she was in a persistent vegetative state. Yesterday, after this[link],

"An autopsy released Wednesday concluded that she had been in a persistent vegetative state and revealed no evidence that she was strangled or otherwise abused before she collapsed."

Bill Frist now says he never made any determination one way or another as to her persistent vegetative state.

He [link to Green Flash] and he and they [Blog Hogger] held on, held tight to the notion that she was not in a persistent vegetative state, that she clearly was alive and on the mend, and that everyone else was Wrong Wrong Wrong. All this, despite their being a martinet, an apologist and a bunch of Calvinist Catholic teens, respectively, with no evidence—much less authority—to claim truth.


read on...

Biscuits doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. The only time he links to us is when he thinks he's proven us wrong or something.

Anyway, he claimed that we denied Terry's persistent vegetativetive state. However, we made no such claim.

Here's an archive of our Schiavo threads (in no particular order):

#1
#2
#3
#4

In other words, he lied. Why am I not surprised...

Aaah...interesting. Is this just another way to say agnostic?
I know some people like this, but I don't think it's quite me. As I've made clear before, I'm pretty supportive of organized religion, contrary to the results here. I guess everything else there works, though, more or less. Depends on what a "modern thinker" is.

You scored as Fundamentalist. Fundamentalism represents a movement in opposition to Modernism, stressing the highest importance on foundational religious tradition. Science has brought on corruption of society. God is real and is watching. Scripture leaves little room for interpretation; man is God’s creation. About a quarter of the population in the U.S. is classified as Fundamentalist.

For Hoody's sake...

 - Brian


...I'll start another topic. Well, actually, I was planning to write about the recent happenings in my life. So here goes:

One day, I was walking my dog when a clearly liberal woman walked past (you can tell because they always look stuck up). Richard, my disgruntled dog, looked up at me and said,
"She’s clearly liberal. Do something about it." So I picked up a rock and threw it at her.
(Continues...)

"OUCH!!" she shouted.

"You deserved it, hag." I said.

"You are a rude little boy!"

"Quiet or I'll burn your house down." I said.

"Is that a threat?! I'm calling the cops." she remarked has she whipped out her cell phone.

I replied with,
"Oh no you not, foo'!!" and then I had Richard attack her while I disabled her cell phone through brute force.

"AAAHHHGGGGGGGG!!!" I screamed, "get this **** dog off me."

Of course the shrill scream alerted some neighbors that happened to be living around the area. As soon as I was done forcing her to convert to conservativism, another liberal hag ran out (blatantly feminist).
Observing the glorious catastrophe, she then phoned the police before I had a chance to disarm her.

"$&%#@!" I said, "Now I'm really screwed!"

Suddenly 3 police cars came shooting around the street corner with sirens blazing. Of course I had to think fast.

"C'mon, Brian, you can think of something!" I thinkeded.

"I know! I'll reach into the pocket of my pants and see what I have!"

As I peered inside my pocket, I recognized a familiar object lurking in the shadows.

"A napalm grenade! Yes!" I exclaimed.

I whipped out the deadly weapon of doom, removed the pin, and quickly chucked it in front of the oncoming police cars.

"BOOOOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!" the explosion shouted.

Everything went up in flames. The smoke was unimaginably thick. Suddenly, I heard the familiar sound of gunshots. They seemed to be originating from behind the wall of thick smoke.
POW!!!

I caught a bullet right in my left arm.
"ARRRGGGHHHH!!" I screamed.

The only thing left to do was make a run for it before the cops emerged from behind the smoke. Richard suggested that I should retreat to a near by beach, so I could hide in the sand. I agreed that that would be the most practical thing to do.
We ran, and ran, and ran, until we reached the beach. By this time, my shirt was drenched with blood, thus slowing my progress. I ripped off my shirt. Bad Idea. Girls everywhere were suddenly chasing me around because I'm so darn handsome (I don't blame them, if I was a chick, I'd want a piece of me too). I managed to slow time with my uber-cool time watch to so I could buy time for myself.
One of the girls accidentally stepped on my uber-cool watch and desecrated it. Of course, I was only half covered in sand at this point, so the SWAT team and the army spotted me. Ironically, the army was commanded by Michael Moore himself, one of the biggest liberals in the history of man. I had to think fast. Viola! I picked up the me-hungry females surrounding me (who else matters?) and hurled them at Michael Moore and the soldiers around him (what else are girls good for?). Unfortunately, I was half way across the beach when -- Click here to read conclusion.

Ooops! Gotta go.

Man With a Chain Saw That Was Apparently Covered With Blood Was Let Into the U.S.




BOSTON (AP) - On April 25, Gregory Despres arrived at the U.S.-Canadian border crossing at Calais, Maine, carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chain saw stained with what appeared to be blood. U.S. customs agents confiscated the weapons and fingerprinted Despres

So you're saying I can't bring a stinking lighter into an airport, but some fool with a bloody chain saw can waltz over our borders? Unbelievable.

My Summas, Part 3: The Bible

 - James

In my last post, I showed some evidence that supported the idea of an intelligent Creator, namely, God. 'Course, all (or most, in any case) religions base their faith on this belief. If I'm trying to prove the truth of Christianity, though, we want to take this a step further: The Bible. There are numerous proofs that support the Bible as accurate. Here are a few:

  • Prophecies: The Bible is full of prophecies, especially the Old Testament, and most, if not all of these prophecies have happened as prohesied. An example, of course, is Jesus. As many as 300 Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled by Jesus. The OT said that the Messiah would work miracles, and Jesus did that, numerous times, in front of thousands of witnesses. It also gave many descriptions of the Messiah's death, saying He would be peirced through the hands and feet, He would be betrayed to His death by a friend, and His legs would not be broken (something that was commonly done during crucifixions to speed up the victim's death, if you didn't know that already), among others, all of which happened to Jesus. Last, and maybe most importantly, it was prophesied that the Messiah would rise from the dead, which Jesus did, and appeared to as many as 500 people, after having most definitely died.
  • Another example of Biblical prophecy fulfilled is (or "was", actually) the great country of Edom. It was an immensly powerful country, but also very evil. Numerous prophecies were made about it's eventual destruction, and between 400-500 B.C. (about a century after the last prophecy about it had been made), it was taken over by other Arab groups, who, in turn, were overthrown by people called the Nabataeans, who were overthrown by the Romans, and this tedious chain of let's-nab-Edom-and-lose-it-again events continued until about the 12th century A.D., when the Crusaders built a castle there. After they left, Edom was pretty much dead, until it was rediscovered by a Swiss traveler in 1812.
  • Textual evidence: Lotsanlotsanlots of manuscripts documenting both the Old and New Testaments exist. These manuscripts were written by people of numerous different races, cultures, and languages, yet they all seem to be in agreement. Some do disagree on minor details, such as spelling of names, or numbers of things (such as the amount of soldiers in an army), but nothing of significance. The New Testament alone is documented by over 20,000 manuscripts, making it the most reliable "document of antiquity", that is, a document written before the invention of the printing press.
  • Early Christians were, as we all know, persecuted for their faith, mainly by Romans and some of the Jews. If the New Testament writings were false, you can bet that these two groups would have dug up a lot of evidence against it to bring the spread of Christianity to a grinding halt. No such proof exists, though.
There is more evidence that supports the truth of the Bible, (or at least debunks arguments often used against it), but there's some for you. The information in this post was stolen from here--as if you didn't figure that out already by following the links above.

Ta-ta, now.

My Summas, Part 2: God

 - James

I am pretty surprised that Atheists exist at all, at least, I'm surprised that Type 1 Atheists exist (see my last post for my definition of a "Type 1 Atheist"). This is because the logic that makes the case for the existence of a Creator is, to me, very simple and very hard to argue. It is this:
Ask an Atheist where the Universe came from, and they may well tell you something to the effect of "It started as a tiny ball of extremely densely packed matter, which spontaneously exploded at some point in pre-time. The exploded matter went swirling around and around, until it eventually settled into planets, galxies, stars, and the like." Or they may simply say "The Big Bang," and keep a long story short. Now, if you want to stay on their case, you will then ask them "But where did that ball come from?" They may answer to the effect of: "Well, it probably came around from a previous universe. See, scientists think that the universe has been going through a cycle, where it explodes, then compresses into a ball again, explodes, then compresses, explodes, compresses, in a never-ending cycle. Our universe is part of that cycle." Or, they may simply say "The Big Bang 'n' Crunch Cycle," and keep a long story short.
Now, whether that is true, whether the Big Bang really happened, and whether our universe will eventually collapse on itself, may be true. I don't know, and that's not the point here. The point is that, with those replies, we still don't get a satisfactory answer. Why? Well, at the risk of stating the obvious, I'll plow ahead:
Our universe is swarming with cycles. Planets cycle around their suns, the tides cycle in and out, living things cycle with birth, reproduction, and death...almost everything goes around and around. However, these cycles all had to start somewhere. Even though they can (theoretically) go on forever, they didn't exist forever. Same rules apply to the supposed "Big Bang 'n' Crunch Cycle". Something else had to start the cycle; something else had to make that little marble of matter, so it could explode and start everything else off, because, as we all know, it's physically impossible to make something out of nothing. But waaaaay, waaaay back, that has to be what happened, because, as we all know, it's physically impossible for something to have just existed forever. So, how can this irritating little paradox be resolved? One word
God.
God, because He can make something out of nothing, and He has existed forever.
So, to make a long story short: There has to have been an intelligent Creator of the Universe, because, quite simply, nothing else is possible.

My Summas*, Part I: The 3 Atheists

 - James

The next few posts I will be making will be about why I am Christian, why I believe it is right, and other various thoughts concerning religion and whatnot.
This first post is considering the causes of Atheism and its different forms. I think denial of God may be caused by three things; therefore, there are three different kinds of Atheists.

  • The first kind of Atheist is the type who doesn't believe in God and religion simply because he doesn't think the existence of a God follows reason. His Atheism is purely based on intellectual reasons. In my opinion, this kind of Atheist is the least common because, as I want to show in following posts, anyone who was letting his intellect--and intellect alone--dictate what he believed in would realize the existence of a God is perfectly logical.
  • The second kind rejects the ideas of religion and God because it won't allow for his kind of lifestyle. This is more common, in my opinion, especially in today's society. Practicing a religion takes away something many of us hold dear, that is, the freedom to do whatever we want. Religion dictates what is right and what is wrong, and Atheist #2 doesn't want to listen to that. Someone who is addicted to smoking doesn't like seeing those "Tobacco smokes you" billboards, because they shake a finger at his lifestyle. Religion does the same to Atheist #2, and he doesn't like it. In other words, this Atheist's reasons for being Atheist are more psychologically based than intellectually based (though #2 may use #1's arguments to make it look like he is, in fact, a #1).
  • The third, last, and possibly most common Atheist is the "don't know don't care" type. This Atheist never really gave any serious thought to religion, and honestly doesn't care about it. He may live a lifestyle that wouln't be allowed by religion, but that's not the key factor here, as he really doesn't realize what he's doing is forbidden. He just thinks going to church every morning is a pain in the butt, and things like that are largely what makes him an Atheist. Most of these Atheists were probably raised with some religious background, but when they went off to college and were no longer in need of their parents to tell them what to do, to haul them out of bed on Sundays, brush their hair, and plunk them in a pew for a (in their humble opinion) &@#$ boring hour, they dropped the whole "religion thing" like a hot potato and ran off to do....whatever. Something else. Many baptized Catholics, Christians, etc. are, in fact, Athiests (or will be when they hit 18) for these reasons.
My two cents have struck again. Thank you for reading.

*That title, by the way, is not meant to suggest that I think these posts will be in any way comparable with St. Thomas Aquinas' works of theological genius. They won't be. I'm using the word "Summas" here to, I dunno, mean something of religious meaning/significance/etc.
