Entry: Church vs. State

I was listening to some talk radio on my way into work this morning. The topic at the time was the whole "church vs. state" debacle. And yes...I use the word "debacle" intentionally. I don't know if I've ever done an entry on this topic, but either way, I'm motivated this morning.

I will NEVER understand the polerization on the topic. I personally am an avid subscriber to the seperation of the two and really don't support the abolition of either. Is this simply a further sign of my non-commital attitude? Perhaps. But again, perhaps not. :)

By its definition, the "state" is representative of the current governing powers in this country and its representation of the wishes of the populous. In this case, it's the 200+ year-old fledgling representative democracy. "Church" is representative of no one single religious or spiritual institution, but all of them as a whole.

I've always believed that an all-encompassing authoritative law should not be appointed over a population UNLESS either it is the will of the overwhelming majority or it can be PROVEN (or, at least, extremely cogent) to be be in the best interest of the greater good. As respective examples, 1) the overwhelming majority believes that women should have the right to vote and 2) it is probably in the best interest of the people to have free speech. (These are simply examples and have no bearing on this topic at hand.)

One of the biggest arguments for the inclusion of church power in the legislative/executive/judicial process is that the founding fathers explicitly mention God in the US Constitution and that they were clearly acting under the influence of their faith. No foul. Who did we have living in this country at the time? White Christian englishmen. (Of course, the opinions of the slave population and the yet-to-be-gentrified Native Americans were never taken into consideration. I also admit that my religious history is a tad weak in this case.) It is important to realize that that attitude was representative of the vast majority of the population at that time. In 200+ years, that has changed dramatically. We aren't simply a nation of whilte Christian englishmen anymore. We're a nation of white americans, latin americans, african americans, asian americans, arab americans, etc. In fact, other countries consider it a weakness that we arguably have no national heritage given the nature of our heterogeneity. The important thing to remember is that they are ALL Americans...regardless of heritage. However, in this country, we have a little thing called freedom of religion. I challenge someone to find a written stipulation in the founding documents that requires the religious assimilation of any migrants to this country (and I'm going to feel like a total tool if someone does). The fact of the matter is that times have changed. The white Christian englishman attitudes of the 18th century are no longer representative of the populous. So, my question to the church-first folks out there...How do you justify legislation that is clearly influenced by certain religous dogmas? But may come to me and say "But the Constitution says nyah!". But, remember this line from the Declaration of Independence...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Funny how that sentence never applied to the slave population (who were regarded as property) nor the native population (who were simply regarded as inconvenient). America has a long history of laws that are considered to be acts of greatness and clarity but yet are completely subject to the views of the time. This is not a failure of the founding fathers, the current government, nor the people. It's simply a failure to recognize that things are fluid and variable. To summerize, this has been my reasoning behind my rejection of the constitution-says-so argument. So...."nyah!" back to all of you! :)

So...back to the topic at hand. The majority of Christians out there don't have a problem with having the commandments in the courtroom, prayer in the school, or "under God" in the pledge of allegiance. "It's in the Constitution!" "It's tradition!" "If you don't like it, you don't have to even SAY the pledge of allegiance!"

What could it hurt to have some legislation that mandates Christian ideals and is enforced across all the people of the country? 1) We have historically disregarded things in the Constitution and the Declaration to suit our needs. 2) Traditional values clearly change. And, last but not least...3) The pledge didn't add the God part until ~60 years ago and I CERTAINLY don't know about you, but I don't like having to pledge my allegiance to a God that I don't even believe in to be able to pledge it to my country. I would argue that it would be more fair to remove God from the pledge and let people add it themselves when reciting than it would be to have it in the pledge and have people simply ignore that part.

And finally, there's my favorite argument....the complete and total lack of empathy in this country. Let's say, for example, that the Arab American population boomed in this country to the point where they actually became the majority. How would most people out there like Islamic values and teachings legislated across the land? (I also want to add that I have NOTHING against such values and teachings....I simply use it as example). For some reason, most people have an inability to imagine themselves on the other side of the fence.

I think that religion/spirituality has its place. I may not be religious, but I do consider myself to be spiritual. I also believe that issues of faith and dogma belong in the home and in the place of worship.....not in the courts and schools. Absolutely NOTHING is lost by having completely-secular national legislation and completely personal dogma. It's win-win for everyone! So what if the public school isn't instilling your kids with Christian values?! That's YOUR job!! :)

Anyway...I expect to get flamed or disputed on my historical accuracy for this post. Oh well. Bring it. :)

Love ya'll! ;)

Movie: Superman

Well...went and saw the premier of 'Superman' last night. Why would anybody want to see a movie at 10pm on a work night? I honestly have no idea. Seemed like a good idea at the time though. ;) A good time was had by all.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie. Brandon Routh REALLY nailed the roll of superman. Everything from the geeky Clark Kent looks to the geeky Clark Kent voice and mannerisms. The music was astounding (only because John Ottman re-used John William's classic Superman theme throughout most of the movie).

8.5 out of 10 stars. Definately worth the $6. :)

Entry: Lessons

1) Life isn't like a box of chocolates, it's more like a jar of jalapeƱos...-- you never know what's going to burn your @ss.

2) Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If they aren't there the first time, chances are you won't be needing them again.

3) I don't have an attitude problem, you have a perception problem.

4) Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the hell is the ceiling?

5) I don't suffer from stress. I am a carrier!

6) Everyone is someone else's weirdo.

7) I'd live life in the fast lane, but I married some speed bumps. -- Glad I got good shocks.

Article: How to handle a child born on 6/6/06

This is a great article on how to avoid having a child born on the sixth day of the sixth month of the sixth year (actually, 7th) of this millenium. And if the coming of the child on that day is unavoidable, it has great tips on how to handle the spawn of satan after it is birthed. It's a bit of a late post, but still worth the post nonetheless. Yet another well-written piece of humor brought to us by the enlightened folks over at Landover Baptist.

NOTE: If you lack a liberal sense-of-humor, this ain't for you. And, if that's true, then neither is this blog. ;)

Articles: The random news

Today in the random news....

Entry: Yo

Hello my minions. How is everybody doing today? It's been about a week since my last post and I figured I'd throw a little something on here to say 'hi' to ya'll.

I am 2 hours into watching 'The Thin Red Line' and needed a break. Only one more hour to go. None of my computer stuff is working here at home so I am mindlessly droning on my keyboard.

I have found a house and have put a contract down on it. Word of wisdom to everyone out there.....KEEP ALL OF YOUR FINANCIAL PAPERWORK!!! YOU WILL NEED IT WHEN YOU APPLY FOR A HOME LOAN!!! It's funny how we live in a world where you can have as many assets as you can stand, but it doesn't mean squat if you can't show it on paper. Bah! I hate money.

The weekend was good. Can't complain. Went to a going-away party for a friend of mine on Friday. There was a bunch of Navy nuke-school geeks there so I really didn't feel like I could contribute much to the conversation (unless, of course, their printer wasn't working and they needed someone to fix it for them).
Saturday was good. Did some packing. Hung out at a friend's house that evening and read a book while she studied. More packing on Sunday and lots of time re-loading software on my laptop. My rendezvous for the evening was a no-show (actually, more of a no-call-back) and so I chowed down on Tollhouse pie in the good company of my study buddy. It was a good weekend. I really am a lucky person. I wish that less people would take their fortunes for granted the way that they do.

I was fortunate to be able to attend a celebration of the Summer Solstice last Thursday and bear witness to some of the interesting pagan rituals that go on. I kept my distance and my participation to a minimal, but it was fun nonetheless. It was very cool....everything from the dancing circle (which, apparently, is a requirement that can be satisfied with a conga line) to the drinking of the sacred lemonade. Oh....I WAS fortunate enough to have a smoke bath. That part I actually did. life doesn't seem altered in any significant way since then. Who'd have thunk it. :) One piece of pagan trivia (that I'm sure will come up on the next Jeopardy episode) is that, apparently, the Summer Solstice is when the Oak King finally succumbs in battle to the Holly King (who presides during the seasons of harvest and rest). Of course, two of the members of the group had to do a re-inactment as part of the ceremony. It looked more like a fight between Neo and Agent Smith than it did between two ancient kings. Anyway....the Jedi lost. And yes...I said "Jedi". Don't ask. It's funny yet awesome. :)

I'm on my third week at my new job and haven't been fired yet. Yay! Looks like I might just make it to month #2 at this rate!

By the way...if Mrs. Right is waiting for an invitation, she can feel free to step in the room at any time and introduce herself. ;)

Speaking of packing...god help anyone who has to see my place the way it is right now. It is a total STY! Boxes everywhere!

I would like to send a HUGE thanks to the people over at Google for getting some high-resolution imagery of some of the areas in the middle east where I grew up. (Actually, regardless of the title, Abqaiq is in there too)

Entry: What men are really thinking

I stole this from Nicole's blog. Hope she doesn't mind. :)

What men REALLY think!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about your leaving it down.

3. Sunday sports...It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

4. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we will NEVER think of it that way.

5. Crying is blackmail.

6. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one:
  • Subtle hints do not work!
  • Strong hints do not work!
  • Obvious hints do not work!
  • Just say it!!!
7. 'Yes' and 'no' are perfectly acceptable answers to almost all questions.

8. Come to us with a problem ONLY if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

9. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

10. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissable in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

11. If you won't dress like a Victoria's Secret model, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

12. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

13. If something we said can be interpretted in two ways and one of them makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

14. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

15. Christopher Columbus didn't need directions and neither do we.

16. All men see in 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, NOT a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

17. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

18. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing', we will act like nothing is wrong. We know you are lying, but it's just not worth the hassle.

19. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

20. Whenever we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you decide to wear is fine....really!

21. Don't ask us what you're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball,
the shotgum formation, or golf.

22. You have enough clothes.

23. You have too many shoes.

24. I am in shape. Round IS a shape

25. Thank you for reading this. Yes...I know...I have to sleep on the couch tonight. But did you know that men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

Entry: My Weekend

Welpers...another weekend come and gone. It was a good one though. I spent a large portion of the weekend doing some packing and miscellaneous other things. The rest of the time was spent reading at a friend's house. I checked out at least five new houses. I'm really tiring of this search. My mom is having a blast though. That's actually a good consolation. :)

I headed out for DC Sunday afternoon. It didn't take me long to realize that I really didn't miss living in that area at all. The traffic was just as bad as ever. The people, again, showed me that they all wear blinders up north. Anyone you walk by is scared to acknowledge your existance for fear of seeming civilized (or, perhaps, too southern).

I enjoyed my hotel though. The suite was quite spatious (we're talking about enough room for gymnastics lessons!) and the bed was a king. Can't go wrong with that. :) Of course, there was some HUGE school trip that had been planned and ALL of the kids were staying in my hotel and on my floor. We're talking about a few hundred teenagers! It also didn't help that the hotel staff kept trying to corral me along with them. It got really old after the first few times. Then again, I guess my Thundercats t-shirt didn't help to accurately broadcast my age.

They had a really long path along the shoreline of the old Historic Alexandria (where my hotel was). I walked a couple miles of it every day. Very nice. Interestingly enough, I had a clear view of the facility that I'll be supporting in my new job (which I will be starting tomorrow). It was nicely situated on the other side of the river and had some pretty kewl looking dishes (mostly omnis) on the premises. Of course, I toured that facility the next day. It reminded me a lot of Goddard.

Oddly enough, I ran into my new boss on a bus ride across the tarmac at Reagan International Airport. Go figure. :)

I returned today. All is well (minus this giant crack in my windshield that is making my life a living hades).

The Disconnect
By: Me

We meet
She smiles
I look away

We walk
We talk
We touch
I look away

She talks to me
She laughs with me
She jokes with me
I look away

She comforts me
She holds my hand
She listens to me
I look away

She holds me
She flirts with me
She brightens my day
I look away

I wake up
I look to her
I finally smile
but she is gone


I frown
I shrug
I ponder
I learn

Entry: A good example of "Scam Spam"

DISCLAIMER: I'm REALLY hoping that noone from AEDC comes after me for using them as an example. <:)

Over the last few years, I have observed the steady increase in the amount of "scam spam". Typically, I just ignore the e-mails or have them filtered, however, this time I figured I'd make a post about it just in case there are those out there who aren't suspicious enough about the e-mails that they receive. Here is one such example that I received this morning from "AEDC Federal Credit Union []"....

Article: The effectiveness of the conspiracy helmet

I wish that I was smart enough (and rich enough) to have gone to MIT. Those guys have the best nerds in the entire nerd kingdom. Soren was kind enough to send me this link that talks about some experiments that were done to test the effectiveness of the aluminum hat. The results are astounding and their conclusion is hilarious. :)

Entry: Bwahahahahahahah!!!!

So...what is so singular about today, you ask? Is it the fact that it is day M+4 ("M" = my birthday)? Not quite...although that is still important. Today marks the sixth day of the sixth month of the sixth year of this millenium. Well...actually, that's not true at all. Technically, this is the 7th year. People seem to take the decimal '0' for granted. So, if you wanted the sixth of everything, you'd wait for 6/6/05. Sorry all missed it by one year!! :-p

All of that foolishness aside, what exactly is the significance of this number? We start in the Book of Revelations (which I'm also told is not its correct name). It's the last book in the standard King James bible (for those of you who never quite get that far). Revelations is the only one of the books in the bible that I find entertaining. The imagination involved is just absolutely fascinating (of course, assuming that it is simply imagination)! An excerpt from that book....

"Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom: let anyone with the understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six."

666 is considered to be the number of the "beast". Others argue that 616 is actually the correct number, but who am I to part with tradition? :) According to wikipedia...

"In some interpretations of Christian eschatology the “Beast” is believed to refer to a being controlled by or equated with the Antichrist, whereas some scholars, such as Dr. Delbert Hillers and the editors of the Oxford & Harper Collins translations, contend that the number is a code for the Roman Emperor Nero, a view that is also supported by the Roman Catholic Church."

Did you know that there is even a named phobia of this number?? It's called "Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia". If you don't believe me, then look it up! :)

My fascination with this date is very simple. It's the day that 'The Omen' is being re-released! Woohoo!! It's gonna suck, but I have to see it anyway!! :)

Just so I can sound like all of the crazy conspiracy theorists out there, I noticed that my hit counter was at 1,144 hits at the time of my writing this. Now, grated that it's exactly 1,000 off, the number 144 is signifficant since the Book of Revelations also mentions that 12,000 people will be saved from each tribe of Israel (12,000 x 12 tribes = 144,000). Yeah...I know....It's a stretch. But why not! :)

Entry: My Weekend

Another weekend come and gone. Yet again, I cannot complain.

I had an excellent Birthday last friday. It also just happened to be my last day of work at my last job. We ended up having a goodbye lunch at Smokey Bones that afternoon. About 25 people showed up. It was good to see all the faces there.

Friday evening was also quite nice. A friend was kind enough to invite me over. I then ended up spending the next couple of hours getting my feet rubbed. It was quite nice. Of course, we were watching some kind of fashion show on TV, but you'd be surprised how much tolerance a good foot massage will buy. :)

Saturday was pretty nice. Ended up going to see 'The Break-up' with some friends. Pretty good movie. Not as good as I thought it would be, but good nonetheless and definately worth the see. I give 7 out of 10 stars. It was the best role that I have ever seen Jennifer Aniston play. The range of emotion that she exhibited was absolutely breath-taking. I'm guessing that her break with Brad helped out in the role.

I started packing on Sunday. Of course, I haven't even found a house yet and the boxes will probably be sitting there for months, but, what the heck! When you have nothing better to do, why not?! Spent a few hours a friend's house reading while she studied. Of course, that all came crashing down when I realized that the book I had just purchased and started was the second in a series and that was why I didn't understand a thing that was going on. Bah! Talk about a let-down. Of course, she was kind enough to give me a couple of HER books to choose from. I skimmed through one called 'Are Men Necessary: When the Sexes Collide' by a woman named Maureen Dowd. Now THAT was interesting. Among her premises was the notion that man was an evolutionary dead-end and that women will be able to perform all biological functions in the distant future. Among the interesting things that I read in the book were the following...

- "If the other person seems hesitant, troubled and tortured but worth it, the other person is hesitant, troubled, tortured and NOT worth it. There are no oxymorons - only morons - in romance."
- "New love can look for all the world like mental illness, a blend of mania, dementia and obsession that cuts people off from friends and family and prompts out-of-character behavior - compulsive phone calling, serenades, yelling from rooftops - that could almost be mistaken for a psychosis."
- "Some people are like slinkys. Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs."

There were quite a few others, but those were definately a few worth noting. :)
Now, mind you, although I find the above interesting, I don't necessarily need to agree with them (the first one in particular).

Ya know....for someone who hasn't done any dating this year, I really do write a lot of dating garbage on here. Go figure. ;)

Entry: The Kiss (revisited)

For all of you slackers out there who have forgotten (or simply didn't know), today is my birthday. Yep...29 years of age. One more year closer to death. Can't wait. Yay.

So, I was again pondering an earlier post concerning "the first kiss". I recently had a similar conversation which brought the topic back to the front of my mind.

For those who don't remember, it was the post about what someone should do if they really like someone but there's no "spark" in the kiss. Having thought about it again (and pulling from past experience), I think that there should be SOME kind of bodily reaction to a possible significant other in the beginning (as I will explain later). I've definately been in the situation where I'm dating someone and the kiss isn't "all there" but yet I hold out waiting for some kind of flame to be kindled.

You find a person who definately likes you...who is well loves all of your silly little quirks that you think noone ever would...and who would be willing to sacrifice for you. You think to yourself..."This person is PERFECT for me!". But, for whatever reason, you're incapable of experiencing those horribly irrational feelings that accompany a normal infatuation.

I've even prolonged that process in the past wondering why I couldn't make that spark happen. "Why God...why? Why not THIS girl???". It's especially bad for people like me who are always wondering why they don't often meet good quality people because when they do, chances are that there will be no spark and it won't matter in the end anyway. (And yes...the glass is half empty) :)

Of course, I cannot offer a universal answer to this conundrum (sp?). I can only pass on to you the kind of advice that fits someone like me. Here are the things that tell me that there is something special...

1) In the beginning, there's the whole butterflies in the stomach. This, or some other physical symptom (and no...I'm not trying to be dirty here) will tell you that that mysterious subconscious mechanism in your head (often referred to as "the heart") is telling you that there is something special there (and, of course, it will never tell you WHY).

2) Although it's nice to be able to see what a possible significant other would be willing to do for you, I find that, when I really like someone, I'm more preoccupied with what I can do to make THEM happy. That's a huge sign for me since I'm a naturally selfish person. I've dated people who have seemingly done everything to try to make me happy. That's all good, but if I have no desire to reciprocate, then what's the point? I want someone who will inspire me to do nice things for them (instead of simply appreciating all of the things that they do for me). My parents are perfect examples (both sets of them). I really do envy them because all four of them (parents and step-parents) would reach up into the sky and give the moon to their spouse if they could.

3) A desire to kiss them. Not the desire to kiss them to see what it would be like or to see if it will be different from the last time, but a true genuine desire to kiss them. Of course, a true sign for me is if I get tingly thinking about it. (Wow. Could I ever sound ANY more feminine than THAT?!)

Now...what happens when I ignore the above signs and persue a relationship that my "heart" doesn't necessarily agree with. For me, it is inevitable. The relationship WILL's just a matter of when. I find myself more attracted to the qualities of this person instead of the person herself. EVERY SINGLE TIME, the situtation is such that over time, their attraction to me grows and my attraction to them recedes. The longer it goes on, the more of a problem it will be in the end. And yes....I have been in the reverse situation a couple times and it absolutely SUCKS!!! So please don't hate me for being so nonchalant about it. sister just called to wish me a happy birthday. I'm going to cut this short now. Remember...this advice may not apply to everyone. However, it never hurts to see read about someone else's point-of-view. :)

Article: Batwoman is a lesbian

DC comics has decided to resurrect the Batwoman franchise. However, this time, she's coming out of the closet! Seriously!! :)
