Two things! Firstly, is your url a Karl Pilkington reference? (i really hope so) and secondly, i'm watching 'Earthflight' on the bbc (i'm British) and am prayng to a non-existent God that you will make some GIFs (: much love x
Yes, it’s a reference to the K-man. I should probably post more things about him, shouldn’t I?
I hadn’t heard of Earthflight yet. Thanks for telling me about it. =) There might be some GIFs on my blog soon. (Btw, you can’t use that as proof of the existence of God.)
It’s almost Christmas! A day on which we remember the birth of Jesus Christ, a first century magician from Bethlehem. Many say he was the Uri Geller of his time. We celebrate his birthday, of course, by welcoming an overweight stranger with quite an unusual suit into our homes, preferably when we’re all asleep.
For those of you who don’t know, Jesus’ father was/is God, his whereabouts seem to be unknown. God is perhaps best known for creating the Universe, an achievement for which he received much praise. He lost some of his popularity when he killed all humans and animals by flooding the Earth.
Let’s go back to the year Jesus was born, which was apparently between 6 and 4 BC, which means his birth must have come as a big surprise. Especially to Joseph, who couldn’t recall engaging in any reproductive activities with Jesus’ mother, Mary. Mary’s explanation was that she had given birth to the son of God, an excuse that only worked once in history. Not long after Jesus was born, 3 uninvited guests turned up to visit the “Son of God”, because they “had seen a star”, quite a cryptic sign, but they were wise men. Of course the men didn’t come empty-handed, Jesus was given gold, incense and myrrh. He lost interest in it after about 5 minutes, but Joseph was thrilled.
Anyway, Jesus lived happily ever after, until he was brutally nailed to a cross.
How do you feel about the 'Faked' Frozen Planet footage? I know this is old news, but i'm slow! Personally i don't feel it was a bad thing at all, it was for the sake of the newborn bears and the camera operators. Plus they are still newborn bears aren't they!?
I totally agree! I thought it was common knowledge they work like that on these kind of documentaries. The people who complained probably watch tv just to find things to complain about. I guess they don’t realise about all the sound effects that are put in, like water freezing up, or they would be complaining about that as well. Oh, and let’s keep the truth about “Walking with Dinosaurs” a secret to them. What does annoy me, is that Attenborough’s documentaries get censured in some countries, like mine, where they take out the parts about evolution, because it’s shown by an evangelical broadcasting association.
Yesterday NASA announced they found an “Earth-like” planet, twice the size of our own (assuming you are from Earth), using the Kepler Space Telescope. I think you’ll find it’s all in the Bible. Here’s a quote from Genesis 1:1:
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the two Earths. Since the planets were 600 light-years apart, He could only keep an eye on one of them. He loved both Earths equally, but He had to make a choice. "This would make a good movie", God said to Himself, as His thoughts wandered off. To make a long story short, God chose the largest of the two, obviously."
