Post Show: Summerslam 2008

In what was forseen as a weak card for a Summerslam event, WWE managed to pull off quite an exciting show, all things considered. My predictions sat at 57% (4 of 7), lower than expected. In a surprise move, they decided to put the two non-championship matches on top as the main events. Highlighted in bold are the winners of the matches:

MVP Vs. Jeff Hardy:
Shelton Benjamin ran in for some interference. Jeff missed the swanton on MVP, and MVP capitalized with the yakuza kick. This was surprising, but I was happy as MVP is my favourite wrestler in the WWE brand. I hope they push him now into a main event program with Triple H.

Santino & Beth Phoenix
Vs. Kofi Kingston (c) & Mickie James (c)
:
Greatness! Santino and Beth as champions will have limitless comedic opportunities. I can't wait.

Mark Henry (c) Vs. Matt Hardy
through DQ:
Match ended after 2 minutes after Tony Atlas interfered. DQ finishes suck on PPV, but at least they did it to the match that would have brought the card down. They teased a Hardy tag team reunion when Jeff ran in to make the save.

CM Punk (c) Vs. JBL
:
Though I placed my bets on JBL, I'm glad CM Punk won. JBL now looks like a big fat geek, after already being stomped on during Raw this past Monday. They seriously have to build CM Punk as a legit upper carder. He still looks like a mid-card chump holding the belt.

Triple H (c)
Vs. Great Khali
:
In a match that was better than expected.

John Cena Vs. Batista
:
Fun match. The frustration in the face of Batista during the match furthers his decent into heeldom. Can't wait. I think the guy is boring as a face. Having big hulking monsters as heels are usually more effective.

Edge Vs. Undertaker (Hell in a Cell)
:
Crazy match, but easily match of the night. It was madness. After the match, Undertaker left the ring, only to turn back and chokeslam Edge off of a ladder. Edge fell through the canvas and fire and brimstone was seen erupting from the gaping hole. Cheesy but fun.

That's it for now, lata geeks.

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have.

In The Science of God, Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible.

The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will.

In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genesis. Duri…

Strange.

My layout decided to fuck up, trying to fix it at the moment.

Edit: mushblue was being bitchtarded. I checked other bloggers using the layout and they were having the same problem apparently. I'm trying this new layout, so things might seem funky for a bit.
