This Ain't Your Father's Apologetics

Richard Dawkins on Colbert Report

I got this from Gary Shavey's blog on Resurgence. I'm not sure if Colbert wins the debate but it is an entertaining exchange.

GOP Straw Poll

I have to be honest, I really don't have a strong opinion who I would vote for during the 2008 election. This little poll is good because it lets you know who people are thinking about as GOP candidates. Many of the names were unfamilar to me.

Hat Tip: Parableman.

Andy Abramson, a Jewish VOIP Mavin, Discusses Chirstian Music

KenRadio, in their Tuesday October 10, 2006 show, discuss the illegal downloads of Christian music in peer to peer networks. Andy Abramson also discusses what his favorite Christian artists are. By the way Ken, I agree with Andy, downloading illegally is sin.

The Nietzsche Family Circus

I caught this on Wired. It is very funny. The quote from Neitzsche is randomly paired with the picture from Family Circus. I think this randomly generated pair is particularly funny since Dolly is holding her dolly. The art is along side the reality, which of course is art too. Sort of recursive humor. Follow the link and see funny sayings.

The Nietzsche Family Circus:




"Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest."

Jericho, the TV show


What I'm thinking could be big is Jericho on CBS. I've always loved the whole Alas Babylon and On the Beach scenario where you just have to use those survival skills and bone up on your Boy Scout handbook. Jericho scratches that itch and then has a bunch of interesting characters as well. The small town has a mayor, his wife, his son who is a adulterer, his son who has been out of the picture for five years and has no explanation, the blond school teacher, the bar maid, the St. Louis cop who is new in town, the mayors political opponent, a deaf girl, her farmer brother, an accountant who just audited the farmer, a brunet who broke her leg in a school bus accident, John Lock, Tom Sawyer, Kate, Evangeline Lilly, Henry Gale , and others. So it does have some of the same elements of Lost. There is a lot of characters who need to be developed. They are surviving a diaster together. There is an outside threat.




By the way, the Wikipedia article on Jericho, Kansas is pretty interesting. There is no Jericho, KS presently but there was a town there until about 1923. But check out the Wikipedia article.














By the way, go over the Jollyblogger's poll and vote Henry Gale off the show for stealing someone else's name. It is the name anothe character who was a balloonist on the Island and the name of Dorthy's Uncle Henry in the Wizard of Oz.

JOLLYBLOGGER: The Pollester

If you have not voted for Henry Gale to get the big pink slip, go on over to the Jollyblogger and let him have it. But then again, it is pretty clear that real Henry Gale is dead since Said dug him up to prove that the man calling himself Henry Gale was a liar. Now if that is not toppsy -turvy.
