I started reading yours, but my eyes started bleeding because of the brightness (which can't be changed for some reason) of my monitor.

Why do you link to christianitytoday.com?

That site is advertising a book called "The liberty of obedience to god", ffs.


Oh, and it has an article why The Da Vinci Code isn't real.
I guess they missed the part in the beginning of the book saying "This isn't real"

The site isn't bad, although a bit too green. The background distracts you from reading the blog...

Yeah, and I question the links, somewhat..

hobmoblin: Err... if you think Xakep's blog was tough to follow, yours is no better. The fond is slightly annoying ,and the design is somewhat lacking, IMO... Not the best colour choice, either...

Oh, and Livejournal sucks, IMO.

Don't they know that porn = sinning, and that they will all burn in the fiery pits of hell?

Dude, surely you know the basis of Christianity is that Jesus in effect went to hell instead of us? You don't seem to have actually read the article either.

Blogs can be great. I don't have one personally because I'm not the kind of guy who can share his feelings easily with his close family or friends, let alone the world.

I really like Xakep_INC's colour sceme actually as well.

" Well, not much to say actually. I'm a pretty ordinary sixteen years old guy from Israel. One you'll find anywhere else."

Yes, every 16yo writes about such topics in his non-native language.

Ok, one of you goons is trying to insult me via their comments, which actually made me laugh, keep em coming.

This is now my favourite comment :

Ooh, how cool.
"I don't care what you think about me, check it out, i'm cool"

I was mocking the article's attitude of "porn = naughty"

As Maggie finished a fifth story, she reached for her teacup and discovered it was ice cold. Startled, she looked at the clock. It was after midnight, and she'd been surfing a porn site for more than three hours.

Disgusted, Maggie turned off her computer and went to bed. The high was gone and she felt lower than when she'd started. Tears flooded her pillow as she begged the God she'd known and loved for years to give her help, direction, and answers. She'd never felt so alone.


Surely you agree that this is a stupid article?
(I'm not saying it's stupid because of the god stuff, I think it's stupid and quite pathetic that someone writes about some woman's porn addiction, regardless of religion and belief)

What do you guys mean when you say that blogs suck? If you mean blogs as a medium I find it hard to say such a thing, but perhaps you mean the fact that there are millions of blogs with VERY varying quality outthere? Blogs as a medium is a new, powerful tool to develop our democracy. It offers new ways of communicating and reporting about stuff that the mainstream media ignores or misses.

I don't read much blogs, but my favourites are:
www.johannorberg.net (English/Swedish)
http://www.forclark.com/ (English)
http://americanpatriot.blogspot.com (English)

For the Swedish guys out there I can recommend these:
http://svedskironaldo.blogspot.com
http://www.gudmundson.blogspot.com
http://www.usablogg.org

You do realize I linked to that site because of some of the music reviews there? If you'd like to mock it's articles, I don'r see the point.
I didn't ever actually bother to read some of the articles there. I just find most of them pretty silly.
Same about Albinoblacksheep. I posted it because it is funny, and not something else.

Besides, your (was it yours?) comment on my blog isn't so polite. I have as much Jewish blood as many of the people here in Israel, I soon will serve my country in an elite navy unit, and I love this counrty. As far as I remember Israel supported democracy and promised to respect everyone no matter what he believes. I can't see why do you think you have more right to live here than me.
If it wasn't you, sorry then. I direct this at whoever wrote that rude comment.

Oh, and I updated it.. And added some more links.

I still don't get why they try to prove the DaVinci code to be wrong.. I always thought that it was a fiction novel. I guess I'll go and prove StarWars to be wrong!.. man, forget starwars!! The uber evil PeterPan

That sounds like a totally brilliant idea actually. Make an article that proves Star Wars is wrong!

It's obviously wrong because you can't hear sound in space.

Nah, because the camera man is in an air-bubble, and vibrations from dust nearby cause's sound inside the bubble.

Anything proved wrong, and be explained away by fans.

oh, and blogs are wonderfull.
Well, lets me more exact:
Most blogs are utter shit, but the *idea* is wonderfull, and hence theres some gems out there.

Thread Revival!

===

Thought I'd revive this thread rather than post a new one. I have new blog: http://www.hingedshinobi.co.uk/blog/ it started off as me fiddling around with blogging software on my site. Any of you guys got any new blogs you write/are reading?
