I started reading the Newsweek story Titled ‘Who Really Killed Jesus.’ I haven’t finished it yet, but I understand that one of the reasons people didn’t want that movie to be shown was because of anti-Semetism. I make an effort to eductate and make myself aware of events and issues around the world, so I’m not sure I understand how this supposedly large feelings of anti-Semetism has eluded me. Are Christians really anti-Semetic? I don’t think that in all my years of Christian experience I’ve heard any Christian outwardly proclaiming anti-Semetism. If anyone has a reason to be anti-Semetic over the death of Jesus, I suppose it would be Christians, but I don’t know a Christian who doesn’t realize He had to die anyway. So does this mean there is a large population of non-Christians who are anti-Semestic over the death of Jesus? Why would that matter to them at all? I guess if they are anti-Semetic for some other reason that would make sence, but I don’t understand what the concern is. I never even thought of being anti-Semetic over the death of Jesus until someone said that there is anti-Semetism because of it.
(This was going to be a response to a comment on from a post, but it got long so I decided to put it up in hea.):
Flirting is going out of ones way to do anything for someone of the opposte sex to get them to like them. I know it’s nice to do things nice for people or whatever, but flirting is stupid. Personally, it makes sense to me to just be friends with someone; it’s totally honest that way. If the other person becomes attracted through being friendly as one is to everyone else, one can be sure it is unadulterated. If I have to go out of my way to get a girl to like me, then why would I like her to like me anyway? I’ll be everyones friend equally. I don’t want a girl I have to flirt with for her to pay attention to me. ‘Cause if I got her attention, how do I know I would keep it if someone else started flirting with her? I’m not that shallow to talk to someone more than some girl stritctly because they are attractive.
I guess flirting would be more than the above definition; it isn’t always a means of getting someone to like them. But if it isn’t, than it’s even worse. Than it is pointless words being spoken as a pointless means to a pointless ends. Flirting is shameful, I’ll do it as a joke, but other than that, I hate it.
The guy from Mending Chaos isn’t playing with his feet, I think some people may think that, unless I wasn’t paying attention I guess. He was jumping in the air while playing; that is quite a feet however, and I am way more than impressed. He is my favorite keyboardist. I’d make the picture bigger if I could, but I don’t know how.
My parents sent me four little things of play-doh, but it has been so long since I’ve played with it, I don’t know what to make.
Natalie made an excellent observation that everyone seems burnt out already, only a month or so into school. I noticed that also, and I noticed something else that might be derived from that. There seems to be a lot of wanting for more intense relationships. Whether it be gf/bf, becoming better friends, what is acceptable touching of friends, more one on one conversations; everyone seems to want more. Everyone is wanting more, but is it not happening? Are we all asking but then being passive? Or am I just not noticing as much as what is happening. It would make sense that this need for more intense relationships would come when people are tired and worn out and wanting an escape. It is a great escape indeed, but I gather from the continued asking that it isn’t happening.
I forgot, I was told on Friday that I looked like Geoff Rickly. That’s a first.
