One day we road our rental bikes for several hours into a remote village in the Netherlands in search of a working, traditional windmill. Instead, we found a Portuguese Jewish cemetery with eerily carved headstones that were over 400yrs old. The church in the distance tolled out the time. We were told by a leaving surveyor that the gate would lock automatically soon and that we might get locked in. Many of the headstones had intricately carved skulls with a variety of tools, weaponry, and bones in the symbology. The carvings had collected rain from the night before and the headstones had red algae growths in the deep recesses of their designs. The macabre allusion of the deep red against marble white in this ancient graveyard was unsettling. I scurried around collecting images of history and design, but was ready to leave when the clock tower rang out once more. Thankfully, we did not get locked in the graveyard for the night.

We close the series ending with Jesus himself, the central figure of Christianity. . . 1st Jesus the man. Virtually all scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus, the individual referred to in the Bible, existed. Even Dawkins himself had to agree. Additionally, there is also universal assent that he was indeed baptized by John the Baptist and shortly afterwards was crucified by the order of the Roman Prefect Pontius Pilate. Thus no debate there . . But Christianity goes further, claiming that this man, Jesus, was "God Incarnate". Rather than being "birth" into existence. He has always existed while at the same time claiming he merely took on flesh. We call this transcendence. Where a Christian believes you yourself are a human body (vehicle) with a soul (driver), Jesus had human body with The creators essence as a driver . . In the 2014 film "Transcendence", Johnny Depp, a scientist who researches the nature of sentience, including artificial intelligence successfully creates a sentient computer. Nearing his death after an attack they decide to "upload" Johnny's consciousness into the quantum computer they've developed . . This is very similar to the concept of Jesus. where the creator himself, inserts his very essence into his creation. Thus allowing him to "experience" the world as we do yet, as the creator in the flesh, retaining his "admin privileges", allowing him the ability to manipulate our universe's coding from within . . Like an artist, whom we would say "poured his life into his artwork", The creator did the same thing, only literally. Jesus performed "Miracles", which are only temporary rewriting of code, as any admin could/can. While this has both practical implications and profound ramifications for your own life, it nonetheless escapes the purpose of our series. Everything that has a beginning, has an ending . . #Jesus #Christian #Love #Peace #God #Holy #TeamJesus #Bible #Hope #Catholic #JesusChrist #Jewish #matrix #Israel #truth #thematrix #atheism #Apologetics #faith #Christianity #Cross #Endabortions #Abortionismurder #Abortions #Prochoice #Prolife #Fetus #creation #science #atheist
A few weeks ago I went through drive through and ordered food in a secular country. I was served by a super cute girl. Trainee. Maybe 16 or 17. Really amazing face, skin, smile. She was in a Hijab. As I waited for my food it occured to me... say I was her age... and I liked her... and I found the courage to talk to her... Do I have a chance to know her name? her favourite song? her dreams? Im not muslim. Could we ever go on a date? Could I hold her hand? Could I meet her family?.... The Hijab didnt just cover her up from my eyes... there was now a barrier between us - much thicker than the 1mm of fabric... Ultra Orthodox Jews, such as the Hasidic, and Ultra conservative Christians, such as the Amish, would be similar... worse actually... as they dont just cover up all skin, but would not be allowed out to work either or be allowed away from their insulated sect. And they generally practice arranged marriages anyway. A magical date out where one is centre of another's attention is not something most would reject; but there is a caveat with some jewish, christian, and muslim girls... as if teenage romance is not awkward enough with hormones, pimples, school... so many changes going on... but this religious indoctrination barrier is not something romance can cross... and in all of this does the girl really get a say in her dress or boyfriend? #noreligion #religion #jews #jewish #israel #mecca #muslim #islam #indoctrination #jesus #arrangedmarriage #secular #romance #hijab #burqa #bantheburka #bible #torah #quran #mosque #synagogue #church #dating #datingmemes #freedom #equality #womensrights #lgbt #love
