On Evolution:

"Take another myth widespread in our day, the myth of evolution. In the last century, by and large, this myth began to take over the scientific world, again without a shred of empirical evidence to support it. Any attempt to try to set forth anything to the contrary is met with ridicule and mockery, put down as though those who hold any other view are village idiots, incapable of reasoning with intelligent men. Yet I find that many Christians believe the myth of evolution. They do not seem to understand the theological implications which evolution teaches, without any support from science, that our race is descended from apes and other animals so that there never was or could be a fall. By denying the fall evolution teaches that there is no need for any redemptive act on the part of God. Why should we need to be redeemed if we have never fallen? That is the theology of the lie of evolution." (Ray C. Stedman)

On Atheism:

"When I was an atheist my argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust? If the whole show was bad and senseless from A to Z, so to speak, why did I, who was supposed to be part of the show, find myself in such violent reaction against it?... Thus in the very act of trying to prove that God did not exist--in other words, that the whole of reality was senseless. I found I was forced to assume that one part of reality--namely my idea of justice--was full of sense. Consequently atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning."-C. S. Lewis (Mere Christianity).

On Home:
"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probably explanation is that I was made for another world." (C.S. Lewis)

Writer's Block: Doh!

What is the dumbest thing you've ever done?


I had just finshed watching 4 seasons of 24 days prior to this, but I was running to catch the bus and I tried to Jack Bauer over a fence and messed my leg and tore my good pair of pants. Epic moment. I could barely walk the pain was so great.

Writer's Block: Week in Review

What's the best thing that happened to you this past week?


Went to Hawaii.
Laura graduated today.
and here, I sit, somehow listing to the band that connected us, Green Day. I've spent 4 years with her living "just around the corner" from me. and now she's gone for good. I'm slightly saddened by this fact. partially because I once loved this woman with all my heart and soul, and part because she is my last giant connection with freshman year. Don't doubt the power of freshman year, it is the most important year in the life of the undergrad. Even now, most of my memories are from freshman year. I digress, *sigh* idk, perhaps its sad that in her book of life, i take up a few pages, but she has a few chapters in mine. I guess I wished that we talked one last time, just to patch things up for good. "But Nick, you totally could have talked to her." True, but I wanted to see if she's changed at least a little bit, at least enough to admit that she was wrong.

We'll Laura, Tonight I shall drink in your honor. *raises can* *sip* I drink to your success in life. I drink so that all of life's blessings come your way. But somehow most importantly, I drink so that one day our paths cross again.

While i was writing this, a friend whom i have not talked to in about a month stopped by to ssy her final goodbyes. She graduated today and is applying to the University of Minnesota. I think the problem is the last goodbyes. With my friend, Amy, it will most likley be the last time ill ever see her. Same goes with Laura. And soon, Mick, and Ali, leaving only Kirsten, "till death do us part"

With any luck, I'll see them again.

atheists piss me off.

God Exists.
Jesus was the Son of God.
There is a Hell.
God will destroy everyone who isn't on His side.

JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY GOD DOESN'T EXIST, DOESN'T MEAN THAT HE STOPS EXISTING YOU IGNORANT PRICKS!!

Personally, its your choice.

I know, on the day of wrath, I'll be laughing at all you who denied God.

Attention MSU Students

I received an email. It was for a survey. This is one of it's questions and below it was the response. Finally, a chance for me to complain about this school, in which no one will probably read. But I don't care. It's my own way of coping with this school. I'd like to know what any current/ex/alumni MSU students think. I would be grateful for that. And for everyone else at a different college or university, tell me if you've had the same or a different experience with what is listed here.


What is a Spartan? What does a Spartan stand for? What does it mean to you to be a Spartan?

A Spartan usually is drunk, and ripping down cork boards in the halls, where I, a maintenance worker, have to clean it up the next morning. A Spartan never questions the tuition increase no matter how much stuff they are unnecessarily building on campus. A Spartan knows that college is not about actually learning material for the long term, but it's knowing what will be on the exam and studying for JUST the exam. A Spartan knows that class is always optional so the Spartan will ultimately stay up playing Halo until 4 in the morning and sleeping through class the next morning. A Spartan is always inconsiderate of those who live around him/her so they will crank their bass up to MAX. A true Spartan, is not a Spartan. A Spartan should rise up and change things, but in doing so, the Spartan will be kicked out of Sparta. I will not bow down to you Lou Anna K. Simon (Current President/CEO of Michigan State University who keeps wanting tuition increases)

Goals for today:

1. Econ HW
2. 24
3. Bible Study
4. Civ IV

Spring Break officialy begins for me today.
