Obama apologizes for cockblocking reporter.


Cool photoessay Awesome shantyhouse at the end made of like 50% windows.

Theological debate. (youtube) Basically for our local religion major.

EDIT: I just watched the entire thing. 11 minutes of debate makes the ending so much better.

For the record, the religion classes I take are religious studies, not theology. So I know very little about theology.

This debate makes me think of the Locke's Wager, which is something along the lines of: I'd rather believe in god and find out he doesn't exist than live my life as if god doesn't exist and find out he does.

Basically, back in the 1700s "atheism" was not so much believing that there is no god, but living as if there was no god. Funny how that changed.

Anyway, my point in all this is that you know you're involved in a highbrow argument when they're using bigfoot and leprechauns as examples.

All I can say is, when religions from both sides of the planet, both sides of Jesus, all have stuff in common, its coming from somewhere, whether it is just some sort of primeval misunderstanding about events, or a genuine presence of a being greater than this earth.

Laura, did you watch the whole video? Cause I'm thinking that if you did, you wouldn't be so focused on the actual conversation.

I posted that whole thing, then heard "punch you in the head for jesus" and cracked up. Sorry, I get excited about dorky things and jump the gun occasionally.

No sorry necessary, I just thought maybe you closed it before the end and missed the main point.
