Editing In Progress

So currently I'm Just attempting to edit my page and make it look semi attractive before I start getting down to blogging on a regular basis.

The new banner I just created was based around an argument I had with some baptist Christians a while back. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not the type to go around arguing  with random baptists about religion, but I was asked to defend the non-christian side in a sort of explanation debate.
Now things were progressing smoothly until I asked them if Gandhi, a man who was known for his non-violence, heroism in the face of tyrany, and general good deeds, would be sent to hell because he was not christian.
 The answer I received from all four baptists was a "yes"...

This came as a shock to me, that they whole heartedly beleived that such an amazing person would suffer eternaly for simply not "accepting Jesus" despite his life dedicated almost fully to others. Now I'm not saying this is how all baptists think, but this incident definitely left me feeling sad for those particular four people.

Anyways, thats how my banner came to be. The essence of an idea or opinion not everyone would agree with. Jesus flipping off Gandhi

I Think There for I Am.... what exactly?

So today I was sitting at my desk pondering the meaning of life when I astounded myself with a brilliant, possibly quite tedious idea. Why not go on the internet, and ask people their opinions on random crap?

Almost everyday i spend time thinking abstract ideas and concepts, so for once, i thought, why not share? Now before you say to yourself "Oh great, another guy whose going to shove his opinions down our throats" just take a sec to hear me out. I may not be the most brilliant guy, and certainly not the most clever, but I'm not going to state opinions in this blog. No. Instead I'll opt for a more open approach - Ideas. simply concepts and new ways of looking at things that anyone can relate to, comment on, or give their own opinion on. a sort of philisophical melting pot full of abstract ideas... Or maybe just a fool ranting to himself about pointless crap for the amusement of others.

So perhaps I'll give this a shot. In the end I might just be preaching to a bunch of thirteen year old girls who believe Justin Bieber is at the center of the universe, but to hell with it, I don't have anything to lose.
