19 Marḥeshwan 5769: Homemade Bread Day/International Students’ Day


Worthy cause of the day: “Join Kyra Sedgwick -- Urge Congress to Stop Global Warming”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
  1. I am pleased to have discovered that the entire run of Battlestar Galactica (original series) is now on-line. This is relevant to Divine Misconceptions because the show borrows some of its basic ideas from Mormonism. See “Battlestar Galactica Frequently Asked Questions” and “Battlestar Galactica and Mormonism” for details. At some point, perhaps while reading through Pearl of Great Price or Doctrine and Covenants, I hope to go through the episodes one by one and point out the Mormon ideas and how some of these ideas conflict with Judaism and Christianity, on the backs of which Mormonism tries to found itself.
  2. “Student bloopers provide historic perspective”: This article (suggested by Mom) lists many religious (and other historical) mistakes made by schoolchildren, all of them humorous. “Student Bloopers” casts some doubt on all of them being genuine. Nevertheless, it makes for great reading if you understand the references.
Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is “The World’s Top 10 Ugliest Buildings”. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
