news of the world


In the first news of the world, I ran slightly over a half marathon yesterday.

The end of the world is predicted to come in 2029. It’s in the bible. It must be right.

This is really good. Bible contradictions. If you don’t read anything else, just check this out.

Maybe it doesn’t matter whether we have freewill.

Have a good week everyone.

    Awesome, Maka. I envy your ability to run. Well….maybe not. Running looks so MISERABLE.

    Did an 80 miler yesterday. It was hard, really hard to drive home because the negative side of California spring really hit for the first time yesterday….POLLEN, the Devil’s seed! My eyes itched and swelled and I could barely see to drive back! Sleeping was difficult, too. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Running when you are unfit can be so miserable otherwise Running is great.

      I hope you are better now. We done have so much pollen here. My biggest problem is usually dust.

    From the “Bible Contradictions” link: 31% of adults believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible — yet no one seems to be able to agreed on which parts to take literally. ๐Ÿ™„

    From the “End-of-the-World” link: We REALLY need to prepare ourselves for: aliens, demons, trans-dimensional beings, and โ€œdiseases that are designed to initiate cannibalism in human beingsโ€ !!! ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘พ

    Re: the “Free Will” article, I used my free will not to read it. ๐Ÿ˜„

      genesis, the whole of it, is to be read literally and the last chapter of revelation. Anything in between is allegory or metaphor.
      the best way to prepare, Nan, is to send me your money. You don’t want the antichrist to come and find you with money.

    Which came first, religion or the perception of free will? Interesting how belief or non belief in freewill is divided by doctrine. Hebrew religions rest on freewill to validate their existence, so I personally think itโ€™s an argument worth having.

      I think for me the interesting question is how did we come to the belief that we have free will?

        It seems to be a western, Hebrew culturism. In Buddhism free will is the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate, which very few attain, basically cancelling out their karma and acting free of the cycles.
        In Hinduism itโ€™s a bit mixed, where there is nothing that is not god, but you can still be held accountable and return again to evolve your nature to a higher self. Either way, we are a product of our atoms, and who can change that by willing it?
        Freewill seems mostly important to Christianity (we are under the influence) where you are a separate entity from the creation and the creator and here to be judged. Like being on probation, a candidate for heaven and each is judged by what they believe, not what they do. Maybe Iโ€™m rambling…
