Random Thought…

When I first started blogging on WP, I noticed that all of the comments blocked by Akismet were advertising porn. Then, it went to about 60% porn, 40% prescription drugs. Now, I have almost no porn advertisements whatsoever and almost all of them are for prescription drugs. And the number has jumped from around 20 per day to almost 100 per day.

Does this mean I graduated to the next level of achievement in blogging, or just that I should spend more time writing interesting blogs and articles and less time checking the spam queue?

Speaking of articles: I’m not going to spend any more time with Rook Hawkins’s Problems With the Resurrection piece posted on his blog a few months back. It seems as though 90% of the information is quote-mining from Richard Carrier, and the rest is viewing the historical evidence for the Resurrection with the presupposition that no supernaturalism can ever occur, anywhere, ever.

I still plan to do a piece on the Resurrection, but it will likely be a general apologetic. This will probably take me a while onger than I had originally planned. and I will start on it after I look at some atheist material in-depth. For a preview of how it will likely take shape, check out this apologetic. I want to read Morality Without God from RRS’s deludedgod, and an atheist reader gave me two good articles to look at for general guidelines to arguing with an atheist. I’ve always thought that Pascal’s wager was a terrible way to look at faith, so I’m going to take a look at the wager for myself and likely I’ll publish something on that in the near future.

The King James Only articles are on the brink of finished. The first is the response to that terrible quiz I keep seeing. I only need to locate textual criticism on one more stinking verse, but I can’t seem to find any balanced commentary on 1 Peter 4:14. All I can find is the typical KJV Only rhetoric. The second article I planned on doing was a balanced introduction to the whole KJV Only position, which of course will require more research.

New Stuff!

Rook Hawkins has posted his commentary on the Resurrection (3 months ago… nothing like covering current events!) over on his “Blog of a Critical Historian.”  I’m planning on reviewing that and writing a response to it.  Assuming that there’s anything to actually respond to.

Deludedgod has written an essay about morality in the absence of God, which I will also read and write a response to.  Look for those under the Articles tab soon.

Meanwhile, tomorrow I will begin work on the NIV Quiz that I’m so tired of KJV Onlyists passing around uncritically.  That should hopefully be up by the end of the week.

With the potential of receiving some donation money from church, I also need to work on a ministry outlook for the rest of the year so that I can figure out a budget.  It is really difficult to write, post in forums, work on management tasks, and also work at Burger King.  One might say that I have my hands full compared to others who just do this work full time and don’t have a day job!

On top of all that, I also need to spend time with my wife!  Naturally, this takes priority over everything else.  The sad part is, I don’t get to see her nearly often enough between my work schedule and ministry time.  I miss her.  😦
