now, there are three webtoons that I like to check every day, after my three fave Elvis Presley fansites, and there are three main news sources that I check on and from there I do something posty on The Blog.
Yesterday, the news about the second Viking settlement was very exciting because these are locations that my ancestors lived in – and I do not mean my Demographic Group Ancestors, I am referring to my actual DNA Family tree – the part on my Paternal Side. I am not related to Erik the Red – but when I was a child in the 1970s, we lived for a short time beside a family with 2 girls who did. So in a sense, we got over the differences.
I cannot wait to see what is dug up and have that visual and visceral ancestor connection in a way that very few people in this world feels.

They were the first church to utterly downplay the Jesus Character and focus on inclusive community and they were one of the group of churchs, mostly Catholic and also Anglican – so many versions of the “one true” eh? I do NOT understand how people maintain their cognitive dissonance.
Sure, we have yet to make a toaster that won’t burn the toast, in fact, we’re burning images into our toast because we are in need of constant childish indulgance to make us feel better or deserving or pretty or whatever and can’t just let a thing be what it is, in the moment of it.
but the only invisible power that works is WiFi because Edison was a jerk and sabotaged Tesla.
There are many clerical people who become atheists, even as they make their living from their church and offering of ritual services.
Their desperation to continue to belong in a place they have outgrown and are counter to the central concept and shows exactly how hollow an experience church is.
It is very scary to lose one’s employment. Religion is the one employer where being a believer is a reasonable expectation; but the bigger question is, why is there religion at all anymore?
