Here’s a little something for Christians, from a friend of mine. I hope it gives you something to reflect on :)
Are we born theists, atheists or neither? Great write-up, with some surprising quotes from New Scientist.
I’m really good at twitching.
Emails, tweets, news, blog posts, instagrams, plays from online game opponents. They’re all right there on my iPhone/iPad/notebook, and they all need to be checked constantly. Right? Of course right.
Or not. Seth Godin’s latest post is a timely reminder for me.
If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile… we are to be pitied more than all men.
1 Corinthians 15
Does anyone else find it strange that we say “Happy Easter” at this time of year?
It just seems an odd greeting to use in the context of a brutal execution and controversial resurrection. Macabre, even.
Then again, there is the fact that this particular crucifixion and 3-day death is the foundation upon which Christianity rests. So, you could say it single-handedly makes millions of people happy.
Weird? Somewhat. Unless you know why Christians get so excited about God finding it necessary to slaughter and resurrect his son. And what sort of evidence they base this crazy belief upon.
This Easter, I suggest you spend some time reading up on the whole thing. You could start here.
..be happy wherever you are, with whatever you’ve got, but always hungry for the thrill of creating art, of being missed if you’re gone and most of all, doing important work.
