“Man is the measure of all things', said the Sophist Protagora (c. 485-410 B.C.)....yes, I measured all things carefully! ~j~
Here is the results of my first soap making attempt, it appears I did not fail. The bars aren't the prettiest but the colors may come out better over the next three weeks of drying. I just made a large block which traced immediately, I don't know what that means as it started to gel fast and I had to rush, What looks brown is really blue when I first added it didn't look like I had enough color so I added more, when I whipped it up it got dark but not blue. So, I think I used too much but there is a good chance it will be blue when it has dried? I didn't have time to make the top pretty but I did layer and swirl the two colors, so might look good when I slice in a few days. I did a concrete texture trick on the sides of the mold. I did get some honey in this batch with two scents and chamomile . I'm learning and I have lots of nice soap! 4 minutes ago - View -
The Awaited - Imam Mahdi A.S : Some people doubt that certain sects have a belief that the Holy Qur'an is incomplete. It is a sign of their own doubts so they try to accuse others because of their own insecurities. Here is a reply to them.
"We believe that the Holy Qur’an is revealed by Allah through the Holy Prophet of Islam dealing with every thing which is necessary for the guidance of mankind. It is an everlasting miracle of the Holy Prophet the like of which can not be produced by human mind. It excels in its eloquence, clarity, truth and knowledge. This Divine Book has not been tampered with by any one. This Holy Book which we recite today is the same Holy Qur’an which was revealed to the Holy Prophet. Any one who claims it to be otherwise is an evil-doer, a mere sophist, or else he is sadly mistaken. All of those who have this line of thinking have gone astray as Allah in Qur’an said: "Falsehood can not reach the Qur’an from any direction (Qur’an 41:42)" 1 hour ago - View -

Melissa Cox : Because I just saw a variation of this and it bugs the crap out of me every time I do. The variation I saw claimed that the student was Einstein and that he was a Christian. WHAT? These bother me because of the anti-intellectualist sentiment. It's always a dastardly athiest professor lately and the wise Christian. Believe whatever you want to, just don't believe stupid http://www.snopes.com/religion/einstein.asp 10 hours ago - View -
HuffPost Politics : Rush Limbaugh: WH, Media Are Making Mandela's Death 'All About Obama' "Without Mandela there might not have been an Obama? I'll tell you who's putting this out there. It's Obama doing everything and anything he can to link himself to Mandela, and the Clintons are the same thing." 11 hours ago - View -
Jeffrey Tucker : Can't believe I waited so long to see "The Devil Wears Prada." What a great celebration of the fashion industry. There are a few passages that are bang on: how fashion unites art and commerce, how the highest levels have a huge influence on society, what it takes to be a great entrepreneur in this space, and more. The cheering on of the work ethic is great here too. Of course it ends with the usual pieties about the problem of ambition, all put in the words of a pathetic boyfriend figure who is trying to keep his girlfriend trapped in his loser world, but the lesson doesn't really stick. The viewer is left with a sense of awe about the world of fashion and its mighty contribution to civilization. 21 hours ago - View -
Michael Hichborn : Nelson Mandela dies at 95 Communist, pro-abortion, homosexual activist leader of South Africa, Nelson Mandela is dead. Pray hard for his soul. I hope he did not die unrepentant of his legacy.
Drew Bowling : Individualism leads to collectivism, and atomizing societies lead to controlling states. Libertarianism is progressivism in Randian drag. Conservatism, by any true standard, is communitarian. Rush Limbaugh is probably a repressed Marxist, and Marx and Rand have much in common. And Pope Francis, following JPII and Benedict XVI, is the globe's most popular leader because he explains -- and puts into moving action -- a comprehensive account of Catholic orthodoxy, including Catholic Social Teaching, which remains the great hope of the world. So there. 1 day ago - View -

Denise Porter : Herald from Harold Lest money be lost from people offended,
Lest God be given glory.
Lest “politically correct” be unwillingly suspended
By telling the real Christmas story.
The point is missed by so many these days
It’s not a mere memory of birth;
But rather a time to welcome with praise
The coming of God to the earth
This is a concept the world does despise,
Though, they like the gifts and next sale.
Satisfied they are with their compromise
As long as the truth they can veil.
But why sing of mistletoe, snowmen and toys
Let the Wonder of history be heard!
What an insult to God when the world employs
Fantasy instead of God’s Word.

I'm just a sinner saved by grace now. A Bible Baptist of the Pilgrim Church awaiting the returning king, & no longer a dominionist or Calvinist would-be king- or queen-let (little god, evolving deity, enlightened one, etc) trying to build the Kingdom in the visible out of God's time from either the left or the right of Satan's dialectic confusion & fake 'progress'. I know now that Daniel 9-12 and Revelation are among the jots & tittles, and every word of Christ which will be fulfilled. But I still love my Calvinist & philosopher friends, and appreciate works of truth like this poem, praying for God to open eyes & draw more & more, further & further from the errors of the ecumenical, syncretistic, fornicating & sensual; philosophical, sophist, & subtle whore appealing to the lust of the eyes & the flesh, & the pride of life riding the beast, backed & supported by Lucifer, and deceiving & hindering so many!.....even among the saved elect. 2 Timothy 2:25-26; Colossians 2:8; Galatians; Hebrews. http://tomorrowsforefathers.com/gracenotes/?p=1417 1 day ago - View -
