Tis the Season

Well, the glitter of commercialism has all but left us this year, and as I stand around looking at the recycle bin overflowing with cardboard and paper, I am glad that I won't have to hear non-stop Christmas songs anymore where I work. I could put up with it a little better I suppose if they didn't start playing the day after Thanksgiving. I work 2 retail jobs (at the moment) so I get it all day everyday.

But at least I was home for the holidays instead of punching holes in the ocean or standing topside on a submarine freezing my ass off. No amount of holiday commercialism or family drama can ever compare to the last 20 years of missing the special events in family life.

I want to wish all of you a Happy New Year and to thank all of you for dropping by all these years. I am sorry I don't have the time to visit all of your sites anymore to post but I do occasionally drop by for a read.

And for the love of God, I am so happy I don't have to read "Mele Kalikimaka" anymore!

I do want to share something that I found in my mailbox today from an anonymous poster spamming an Islam vs. Christianity website. Here is the post:
Jesus? - Did He Really Die on the Cross? (Evidence says, NO!.)
Bible - Is It the Word of God? (Experts say, NO!.)
Trinity- Did Jesus or anyone teach this? (Bible says, NO!.)
"Only Begotten Son of God"? Was this Jesus? (Bible, says - NO!).
Are children born in original sin? (Bible says, "Yes!" - but Jesus says, "NO!")

All this & more - internets site to compare Ä°slam & Christianity:
http://bibleislam.com


Well, I don't know about you, but I'm ready to toss my beliefs because some "experts" have disproved the entire Old and New Testaments!

Like all chickenshit Muslims who suicide bomb to get their point across, this poster couldn't even use a login to post. That doesn't lend much credibility to your cause if you are too embarrassed to give a real name or at least a bogus email address to post on. I was always interested in listening to people bash my religion because I fall back on faith to ease the uncertainty of a lot of events that took place in the Bible. These people bash me because they think faith is a scape goat yet they can't really give definite proof to the contrary and place the burden of proof on me, and other Christians, that what the Bible says is true. Funny, why do I have to defend my faith to someone who is attacking me on my beliefs and use science or definite or varying degrees of "proof"?

That's why they call it a "belief" system. If these people are too uncomfortable in their ambiguity of religion then that isn't my fault. It is not my responsibility to engage my belief system in a series of tests based on man's limited perception of divine power. I think these people just want someone to find out the answers for them and to ease the unknown. Or, they are just a bunch of assholes who don't like religion, or MY religion for one reason or another.

Peace.

  1. TK,
    Glad to see you had a moment to post. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Betcha won't miss the Louder than WW III fireworks on New Years Eve. Sulpher smoke was always a treat on New Years Eve.

  2. Ah yes, the smoke so thick on H-1 that it resembles a foggy San Francisco night and jackasses lighting off strands of fireworks well into the wee hours of the morning.

    There are somethings I just won't miss about Hawaii.
