his image

I've been reading this article that my parents have about evolution and creationism. Being a Christian publication, there's a lot of arguments reused that always seem to go back to a small passage in the bible.

One is that if man was created in God's image, how could humans have evolved from something else through random variation?

That our physical being was set in stone and that physical being is God like.

This is something I've had a problem with for a long time. Growing up in a Christian household, even as a child I found contradictions with teachings in the bible. When I first heard that we were created to look like God, I assumed that it must be in a metaphorical sense, or in some manner other then our physical being.

Everything about our bodies is related to our environment. We have enough muscle mass to hold ourselves up in this planets gravity, we have lungs that breathe the air on this specific planet. If God created light, what was he using to see before he created the universe? We have eyes that are specifically adapted for this light. If it was much darker, we would have evolved a different form of eyes that could see in darker environments.

The only way God could look like us is if the Christian perspective of God is seriously skewed. If we were created by aliens from another planet similar to ours, then perhaps we would look somewhat alike.

There's an odd satisfaction to finishing off a game of solitaire. Double clicking each card even though you know you've won, it feels like the best part. Like finishing off the last numbers of a sudoku. Solitaire is an odd game, there's not really any strategy to it, (not that I know of, anyway), it seems like you get a deal that wins or you don't. I suppose there's a couple ways you can screw up, and there might be a solitaire expert out there that's like, "damn you kid, there's so much more to this game then you realize!" but to me it seems like when you play solitaire you're just going through the steps to see if you have a winner or not.

I still play it from time to time while waiting for this slow ass internet.

another wasted weekend

I'm going to go to sleep right away because I have nothing better to do.

another week of work ahead of me

I think there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

Paying off my debt, saving up, getting a house, an education, taking a vacation

I'm telling myself this because I'm pretty sure that as long as keep these positive images in my mind everything will be fine.

who are you and why should you care

everyone has their own problems, aspirations, distractions, escapism, depression, suppression, indecision...

there's not really any point in writing this.

just words

just another day.

Does anyone think it's weird that they have a vampire on sesame street? This is a character that needs to kill other people and suck their blood to survive. What a messed up concept. It's like having a zombie teach kids about dental hygiene. "After every corpse I eat, I make sure I brush my teeth."

maybe I should delete all the stuff above that comment

whatever, no one reads this

I think I was happier as a Christian

I was happier as a child too

We all have to grow up sometime.

nothing in to something

I stumbled on this image this morning. While I am pretty much in the atheist/agnostic camp, I have to agree that the whole notion of a universe and life itself coming in to being entirely on its own is extremely bizarre. Yet, saying that life and the universe were created by something else creates that same problem when you think about, where did God come from?

No matter how you look at it, matter and life coming from nothing doesn't make sense. God had to come from somewhere. To just write off the entire universe as coming from God but to ignore how God came in to being doesn't make sense.
