I was scrolling through the Christian blogs a couple days ago, and when you do that, you need to realize there are many anti-Christian blogs. That's fair; it's a relevant tag. I saw one that had some decent arguments against Christianity, or at least I could see why this person believed what they did. Well-reasoned, … Continue reading This is an Offensive Post

I know that "technically," fall hasn't started and that "technically," it already has. The fall solstice is on September 23, so that's the "official" beginning to fall, but let's be honest, it's never that simple. Thousands of kids from 5 to 30 have already returned to school, so for them, summer is already over. That's … Continue reading Autumn, the Super-Happy Fun Slide of Awesome!
What do you think of when you hear the words "Classic Movie Moment?" The final line of Gone with the Wind? "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" scene from Fantasia? Neo's bullet-bend in The Matrix? I'll bet if I say "That scene" from When Harry Met Sally, you'd know exactly what I'm talking about. These are the moments in movies that stick … Continue reading 10 Classic Moments of the 2000’s
