Haven't written anything in while

I've been busy with school and work.

Anyway, I wanted to make sure that anyone out there who is a regular reader didn't think that I had fallen off the edge of the world.

Speaking of which, I heard recently that there are people out there who are trying to further the notion that the Copernican theory is incorrect, and that the Earth is at the center of the universe. They say that the world is flat, the sun orbits the Earth and all that jazz.

The best part is, they are serious. I mock and ridicule them.

I wonder what would happen if I tried to further some logically insane notion like that, in the face of all reason. I mean, what if I tried to start a religion, or something, based on the visitation of space aliens to this planet. Then what if I became a famous movie star, and married (in succession, not all at the same time) three insanely beautiful women, and jumped on a white couch on a nationally syndicated television talk show. How would people treat me? Would anonymous bloggers mock me? Would nationally syndicated hosts from other talk shows play my footage over and over again? Would less attractive men the world over feel jealous of me?

Who knows? Will the world ever know? Will the world ever care?

In the meantime, I am going to go on quietly living with the one insanely beautiful woman I have been blessed to marry, living the religion I was raised in, in which the central character was arrested, condemned, tortured, ridiculed, killed, buried, and then came back from the dead. He also speaks to living, breathing prophets today, guiding His people using continuous revelation. One day, I hope to be able to return to live with Him. In a world where there are ridiculous things happening all around us, I am glad that I have something normal like this to fall back on.

Space Aliens! Sheesh!

It's the weekend. Whatever your religion, whatever your beliefs, practice them. Go to church, temple, synogogue, mosque, or home, but practice your religion. Make it your life, not your lifestyle.

Thanks for reading.
