Special Post: Farewell Skyrah!

Today is a special post for my friend Skylar and his beautiful wife Sarah. Today, they will be embarking on a journey to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates where Sarah has accepted a job in teaching. They're going to be there for the next (undetermined) while, with I'm sure exciting adventures and stories ahead.

Skylar is my Tier 1 friend and probably knows me like no other, even though I don't get to see this dude much post-schooling. Anyhow, I'm gonna miss ya and I just wanted to wish you both the best (I know you're reading this Skylar)! This blog hides my tears, lol. My prayers will be with both of you's! God bless ya!

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.
