Abortion and Bible stuff Thu, Feb 17, 2005
How 'bout this for a radical extremist idea:  Concerning abortion, what if babies went to hell when they died because of man's inherently sinful nature and a baby's lack of time/ability to accept Christ.  This would mean that Satan would gain a soul for his army each time a baby was aborted.  This would be a good reason not to support abortion.  I don't think I believe this though.  It's too out there. 

Here's a tough Bible question:  Did Christ preach to dead people, according to 1 Peter 4:6?  My answer:  No.  It says that the gospel "was" preached to those that "are now" dead.  It doesn't say he preached to those that "were dead".  This is true in the NIV, NASB, KJV, and NLT, among others.  It's saying that Christ preached to people who have since died.  That's it. 

And what about this one:  Did Christ preach to people in hell or Old Testament people or fallen angels, according to 1 Peter 3:18-20?  Most likely fallen angels.  He preached to spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago while Noah was building the ark. 

Who are the sons of God in Genesis 6:1-3?  Probably not angels because Matthew 22:30 says there's no marriage in heaven.  However, this was happening on earth, not in heaven.  It says "sons of God" saw "daughters of men," which kind of implies that godly men saw some women of the world and were attracted to them.  Plus, this fits in with the context of the passage, which is talking about how wicked the world is and how God is about to destroy it with a flood. #religion

CDs Tue, Feb 08, 2005
So it turns out that the Compact Disc was patented in 1965. It must've been unfathomable back then. My thoughts: CDs will be obsolete within the next 5 years or so. Think about it: CDs hold 700 MB of information, music, etc. As of right now, there are Secure Digital cards capable of holding 2 GB of information. The difference: they're about an inch square, whereas a CD is 4.75 inches in diameter. A large round disc is probably the stupidest way to store information in a portable way. But in 1965, it was probably amazing that you could make a record smaller than 7 inches. #technology
