Oprah, Our Great High Priestess

This week is when Lance Armstrong is going to meet with Oprah and confess that he took performance enhancing drugs while professionally cycling. What is this? When did Oprah become America’s high priestess to whom all must confess their sins? Further, why is the person “forgiven” after appearing on her show? Go on the show, sit on the couch, shed some tears, tell the country why your life has been difficult, wait for Oprah to give an approving nod, the…

Stop Calling Natural Disasters God’s Judgment

It happens every time there is a natural disaster. Some "godly" person says that this tragedy is God's judgment on the sinful people. From the hurricane in New Orleans, the tsunami in Asia, a tornado in Minnesota, and the earthquake in Haiti, everyone is quick to say that God is judging. But no one says that when it happens to them. These religious people only say this when disaster strikes somewhere else. Please stop. Stop being arrogant and self-righteous. We…

Scientists Finally Admit Humans Did Not Come From Chimps

Last Sunday night the Discovery Channel presented two shows on a new fossil find for the missing link between humans and apes. The first was a two hour show called Discovering Ardi and the second show was one hour called Understanding Ardi. Ardi is short for ardipithecus ramidus, the name of the hominid fossil find. The find is used to prop up the belief that humans were not created but evolved. But there is an important and startling admission. At…

When Movies Are More Important Than Justice

It is a sad statement concerning the sinfulness and depravity of this world when there is outrage for arresting felon because the world will no longer have new movies produced from said felon. This warped thinking concerning Roman Polanski saddens me. No one thinks about the justice needed for the victim and the victim's family. All we care about is our own personal entertainment. And friends, making movies is not doing good for the world by any standard. Woe to…

Arguing or Divorcing In Front Of Your Children

On this week's episode of Jon and Kate Plus 8, the justification for their upcoming divorce is that "it is not good for us to be arguing in front of our kids." I have heard this argument used many times. In fact, I have had many people ask me which is worse: divorce or having your parents constantly argue. I am able to weigh in on this because I remember when my parents were together (now divorced) all of the…

The Child’s Perspective of Divorce 2

As mentioned in the first post, this is to address the lies and excuses parents often give to make themselves feel better about seeking a divorce when children are involved. I, who had parents divorce when I was in elementary school, want to use the Jon and Kate Plus 8 season to reveal some of these lies. The eight year old twins are really stepping up and helping out with the sextuplets and with the household chores. This is not…

The Child’s Perspective Of Divorce

Many are fans of the popular television show Jon and Kate Plus 8. It has been a show about how two parents survive having twins and sextuplets. After watching four terrific seasons of a family unit, the fifth season began last night with the separation of Jon and Kate. While not yet divorce, they are currently separated and the episode centered upon their difficulties and failings in the marriage. The reason I am bothering to write about this is because…

Global Warming Lies

I saw a very inaccurate test done on TV where temperature tests were conducted comparing sun heated plastic soda bottles filled with carbon dioxide (CO2) and air. A soda fountain was used to fill a plastic bottle with compressed CO2 while the other was filled with air. Compressed CO2 is quite a bit more dense than air and it seemed like far too much CO2 was used. Naturally the CO2 bottle warmed much faster than the air bottle to the…
