I usually don’t comment on any religious stuff because I don’t like to debate it(mostly because I don’t think debating religion will ever change anyone’s heart beliefs). I have grown up in church and I have NEVER once heard one person say this sort of thing. I cannot imagine people are saying this to him all the time.
I don’t think that if I didn’t have God watching over me that I would go on some murderous rampage. I do think I have struggles in my life that I believe that God has helped me through.
It breaks my heart that the Christian religion and the Bible has turned into this weird list of rules and excuses for hate when it’s really the opposite. It’s a story of grace, forgiveness and love.

Agreed. When I didn’t have a higher power/god/whatever you want to call it in my life, almost entirely the damage I did was to myself, not others. And with faith I believe I have comfort in tough times and am less about ego, more about helping others and I have a sense of serenity. For me it was never about a bearded white haired man in the sky ready to smite (smote?) me if I didn’t follow his rules. It was just that I had a greater sense of emptyness, fear and chaos in my life. And for me - just for me - that was a sad way to live. To each his own.

Not all churches are rolling in the dough. The church I attend would probably go bankrupt if it had to pay taxes.How about we have appropriate taxation of the rich? Imagine what that could pay for! Oh, right, it’s all relative depending on who you talk to.

Happy Easter!
Our lollipop crop is abundant! And the bunny left a chocolate egg trail to Harry’s basket, which may have been a little over Harry’s head. He wanted to stop and eat each egg, obviously. When he found his basket he laughed and said,”That’s so seelie (silly)!”.
Biggest hit were the trains. Now breakfast,church and home to host the grandmothers for dinner. We’ll fit an egg hunt in somewhere.
Hope everyone has a nice holiday/Sunday!

Fertilization

A beautifully done animation on how you became you.

See the full video here as I left out some really cool parts.

From 300 or so million down to ONE.

YOU. MADE. IT.

Edit:
Let’s think about this for a moment. The US population is roughly 330 million human beings. For the purposes of demonstration, take almost the ENTIRE POPULATION OF THE US and put them on the west coast, packed as tightly as possible. You’re just chillin, somewhere south of Pasadena let’s say, trying to get free, sweating and hungry with a desire you’ve never experienced before. You know you’re going to die though you think you’ll be the one to make it.

Then like the ULTIMATE hunger games of GENETIC WIN you traverse across the country desperately trying to get to the goal with absolute disregard for the other 299 million people. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, everyone you’ve ever known dies. You somehow get to the end. Where you bust through a gated base only to be sealed in and combined with another human to make a brand NEW human.

300,000,000 and you’re the only survivor. And your prize is to essentially die and reconstitute into a new being.

That’s awesome.

Whoa.

Basket is stocked. Chocolate, jelly beans, peeps, chalk, trains & the bunny Harry kissed when he held it in Target a month and a half ago.

Harry was shy and awestruck meeting the big bunny this year. He was so in love.

Over in FB-land I got comments on this bunny that he was terrifying. I let them know that he’s just kinda depressed over his divorce (right, piggyvonninja?). I’m guessing those people haven’t seen the nightmare compilation of Easter bunny pics Awkward Family Photos does every year. 

A plug for small towns & your local Boys & Girls Club: ours put on this event - breakfast with the Easter Bunny (they do a Santa one too). It’s super affordable, it was $22 for breakfast for the 3 of us (pancakes/French toast/eggs/sausage/donuts/juice/coffee), pic with the bunny, and a fun egg hunt with prizes. Plus we get to see all our friends from town and it’s walking distance from our house. If we went to the mall for a photo it would cost more than all that with zero of the fun.
