Meta-Blogging: July 2006 Archives

The 133rd Christian Carnival will be taking place this week, hosted at Digitus, Finger & Co. From the Anchor Hold. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see Matt Jones's list of previous Christian Carnivals.

To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Second, please submit only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from last Wednesday through this coming Tuesday).

longest book of the bible (word count) original hebrew
Is there even a contest? Who might suppose that anything else is anywhere even close to the Psalms? I have more than once heard people say that Jeremiah is the longest book in the Hebrew Bible, but I think they must be counting the five books within the Psalms as five separate books.

who is more important in church deacon, reverend or most reverend
Why would one position be more important than the other? This is one reason we shoudn't have such titles to begin with.

true knowledge comes with knowing that you know?
I sure hope not. I wouldn't like it if my knowledge depended on an infinite regress.

catholic church disproves stem cell research
I don't think the Catholic church is really in the habit of proving or disproving anything in science. Perhaps this was supposed to be "disapproves", but that would need an "of" right after it, and even then it would be false because it's just the fetal stem cell research that they disapprove of. You don't have to kill anything to get adult stem cells.

HOW TO ENTER A ALTERED STATE OF CONSCIENCE
Well, I suppose you could just repeat to yourself, "Murder is ok. Murder is ok. Murder is ok." If you combine that with repeated attempts to kill people, then you might start thinking it's ok after awhile. Oh, you meant an altered state of consciousness? That's not all that difficult either. Just spend some time reading the Kant generator (just hit reload, and it will generate more text). I guarantee that an hour of reading that stuff will alter your state of consciousness.

300,000th Visitor

| | Comments (10)

According to Sitemeter's count, my 300,000th visitor was registered today. Unfortunately, it's not an interesting visitor from a web search. Nor is it a regular reader of my blog whom I can congratulate. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was just me.

The Sitemeter information is pretty sparse. It gives no location, but it gives the first three digits of a Road Runner IP address without specifying the fourth and crucial one. This visitor loaded up my NT Wright post from yesterday by clicking on my main page at 11:56:05. The last visit for this visitor is listed as 2:02:23. I left a comment on that post at exactly that time right after reloading my main page. I was operating on another network at the time but had not restarted since my being on my home network, which masks the IP address in a way that Sitemeter can't detect (but I imagine more sophisticated methods might).

Still, I suppose Jan and David can enjoy the fact that my response to their comments achieved a milestone for this blog.

DA Carson's commentary on Romans
John Stott commentary Isaiah
That would be nice, wouldn't it? I think Carson's got his hands full revising Matthew and writing Galatians, Hebrews, I-III John, and Revelation. At least Carson is a NT scholar. Stott hasn't written on anything in the OT that I know of, though he's a pastor who has preached from it. What's even worse is that I get searches all the time looking for NT scholars' commentaries on OT books and vice versa. Occasionally this does happen (F.F. Bruce on Habakkuk, Leon Morris on Ruth), but it's extremely uncommon, and I think people just assume that someone who writes a good commentary on one book must have written a good commentary on the other 65.

abortion causes autism
No, abortion causes a condition much more serious than autism. They call it death.

do christians and other religions belive the same thing about parables
Is there something that Christians believe about parables? I'm not sure you can believe the same thing as someone else if there's nothing in particular that you believe about it to begin with. I see no theology of the nature of parables anywhere in the Bible.

What does the 4th of July mean to Christians
Why would it have some special meaning for Christians?

i am looking infomation on how i can recognize my pastor
Next time, please include a picture of your pastor in your search, and maybe then I could offer you some tips. Short of that, all I can tell you is that it would be good to know what your pastor looks like and then to try to see if the person you think is your pastor has the same visual appearance. If your pastor has an identical twin, it might be good to find out some things your pastor knows or can do that the twin can't do. Beyond that, I'm going to need some more specific information about your pastor.

Disturbing Searches

Stephen and Abigail Thernstrom are racists towards blacks
Once again, we have ridiculous accusation via Google search.

who could rape wonder woman?
Who could come up with the idea to search Google for that?

What would Immanuel Kant think of President Bush lying?
Well, for one thing he'd probably take lying seriously enough that he wouldn't assume that someone has lied when the evidence supports no such thing.

do calvinists like damnation
How many people have you met who like damnation?

black men are sell outs
Yes, all of them. Who would say this sort of thing, anyway? Who would be searching for someone saying it, for that matter?

rainbow sun nationality
He's Canadian. He's from Toronto. What's with this continuing need to assume that someone is from some remote or strange location just because they're of mixed race? Just the fact that he's on Stargate is strong evidence of his being Canadian.
