Jewish date: 8 Tammuz 5769.
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
- “Ky. pastor welcomes guns, their owners to church”: Wait a minute... Did Jesus ever promote the right to bear arms? Whatever happened to pacifistically turning the other cheek?
- More religious oppression: “Al-Qaida claims it killed missionary from Cleveland” and “Egypt: Village Christians In Hiding After Clash”.
- “‘Ark of the Covenant’ about to be unveiled?”: The Orthodox Church of Ethiopia claims to have the Ark of the Covenant, and this Friday they are supposed to be showing it to the entire planet for the first time. This is a huge change from their previous position, which was that they claim to have the Ark but refuse to show it to anyone—a warning sign suggesting that they do not really have it. I am very curious as to what, if anything, they will produce on Friday and will patiently await to see what happens; this could end up as another Clonaid scandal. I will also patiently await competent scholarly evaluation of whatever they produce and not automatically assume it is genuine.
- “Philippine Catholic families promote daily reading of the Bible”: An obvious yet excellent idea.
“Apocalypse”. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
