I’ve heard it said many times that, “I don’t see things black and white.” Not refering to “I” as in the author of this post, but “I” as in the author of that statement. Many people I know have said it, and I’ve read it often as well. But should we not see things in black and white? I understand not everything is so simple to define, but is that because we just lack the knowledge to understand, and the oratory to explain such things? There is a verse in the Good Book that reads as follows,
Eccl. 7:29 “One thing I have learned; God has made things very simple but man has complicated them.”
And complicated them we have. I am not a advoacte of gray. I like structure, defined lines, boundaries, guidlines. One must reach outside of them at times, but to extend them or exclude them leads to chaos. I especially think this in “Christian” terms. If we go too far away from legalistic Christianity, we’re left with a bunch of miscountrued ideas and thoughts, and a bunch of heathanistic “Christians.” But nothing can be done about it for fear of legalism.
On the subject of tradition, “The Fiddler on the Roof” was really good. I don’t usually take much of a liking to musicals, but I was indeed entertained.
I read today in Popular Science that our universe is made up of ten dimensions. That’s crazy. I(nor anyone else) can even picture something in any more than 3 dimensions. I read before that our universe has 30 billion years left. That’s good considering they think the universe has been around for 13 billion so far. Most of the universe is made up of dark energy or dark matter. No one knows what it is or how to explain it, but it’s there. And it is 14 times more powerful than all the other energy of the universe combined and it works the opposite of gravity. That means the galaxies are pulling apart from eachother at an ever increasing speed. So in 30 billion more years they think the universe will rip apart. Have you ever wondered what is beyond the universe? If it is expanding, it must stop somewhere. Maybe that’s where Heaven is. We’ll never get there this side of Heaven though. Einstien said that anything that has mass can’t travel the speed of light. That’s why photons(light) don’t have mass. Neither do gravitons(force of gravity). So we have mass, so we’ll never be able to go as fast as the speed of light.
Do people post in their xanga’s assuming people will read? Or is this an online journal where people just write about their life? I use it as the latter. I don’t expect anyone to read it, so consequently I don’t expect anyone to be interested in it, or be offended by it. I by no means purposefully offend anyone in this. I’m not sure I’ve ever inentionally offended someone. Not on xanga or anywhere. That’s fricken mean.
