These Are The Books The Internet Says Every Man Should Read, And It's Pretty Disappointing

These Are The Books The Internet Says Every Man Should Read, And It's Pretty Disappointing

“But that would be judging a book by its cover, and the HuffPost would never commit such a philistinism. They're okay with publishing inaccuracies about books, but they will absolutely not be seen to have judged those books by their covers.

A shame in this case, as you've pointed out.”

“Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls is NOT set in Italy during World War I. It takes place in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Who writes these articles? Who edits them? They should be embarrassed.”

Christians Gather In Kansas To Discuss Homosexuality

Christians Gather In Kansas To Discuss Homosexuality

Commented Sep 20, 2013 at 11:33:41 in Religion

“Just the fact that homosexuality has to be discussed at all is a sad testament to the Christian community -- not just in this country, but worldwide. Some people are gay. What is there to discuss? Some people are left-handed. Should we discuss that too? Some people like watching reruns of Three's Company. Does that need to be discussed? Actually, that last one might need to be discussed . . .”

oski the bear on Sep 20, 2013 at 11:45:08

“In my opinion, the Christians whose focus is on homosexuality are EXACTLY the kind of people who Christ himself actually got angry with in the New Testament. Christ doesn't get angry too often, but when he does, it's about priests and religious figures who take extreme efforts to display just how holy they are--to the point of being oblivious to a starving person lying nearby. People who believe that religion is about laws and rules, and that the most important thing is to follow those laws and rules.

In the parable of the Good Samaritan, a priest passes a wounded traveller and does not help. Historically, there are a number of reasons why this would happen. The priest was on his way to temple, and stopping to help a wounded traveller on the roadside would have rendered him unclean when he entered the temple. Better to enter the temple clean in accordance with law than be dirtied for having helped a wounded person. Christ rejects this.

There are other accounts in the Bible where Christ opposes the pharasies who place adherance to laws above kindness and love. And I see the current situation as an eerie re-enactment of that schism. I think Christ saw ethnocentrism as a human trait, and taught us to be wary against it. At the same time he warns us that huge groups of people will ALWAYS use religion to further their goals of ethnocentrism, and that this will always be contrary to Christ.”

“Dinosaur flatulence caused prehistoric climate warming?

Well, I can't speak to that, not being a climatologist, a paleontologist, or a flatulologist; but I can't help but see the irony in this. The global warming we see today might very well be attributed, at least partly, to the noxious wave of Tea Party flatulence that has of late engulfed and befouled our public discourse.”

“Roger Ailes knows his audience so well. He knows they need to find someone or some group to point the finger at and to blame for the various ills we face.

Personally, I have no idea. But demonizing Mr Rogers -- MR FREAKING ROGERS! -- is almost beyond belief. Is there such a thing as a Rotten Egg Award for cable news stories?

“Matheson's first published short story "Born of Man and Woman" (1951) was one of the most heartbreaking short stories I've ever read. And his novel I Am Legend (1954) was far, far better than any of the movie versions. Really, no comparison. His westerns Journal of the Gun Years (1991) and The Gun Fight (1993) were also exceptional. He really was a master craftsman. I'm sorry to hear of his passing.”

“It would have been nice to get a faithful adapation of I AM LEGEND just once. THE LAST MAN ON EARTH came the closest, but it was such a cheap production done in Rome instead of L.A. where the novel was set.”

“Sea levels during the last glaciation were significantly lower than they are today. Many of the islands of the Aegean Sea, including Crete, were connected to either mainland Greece or to Asia Minor. Some maps show an unbroken land mass extending across the central Aegean -- much like the land bridge that connected Siberia with Alaska. It doesn't surprise me that DNA samples reflect the variety of human migrations over thousands of years of prehistory and early ancient history.

Questions of racial origins are legitimate ones, I suppose, but they seem to attract people with racial or cultural agendas. The racial origins of the first people to inhabit Crete may have had little connection to the racial make-up of those inhabiting the island a thousand years later, much less a thousand years after that. People move around; populations change.

When pondering racial origins, consider this: my neighbor and I both have African roots, he's a full-blooded Apache and I'm a third generation Norwegian-American.”
