tidbits

Hello blogging world. You are increasing globalization. Good work, lovely. I hope you take this responsibility seriously.

I am a student again (woohooo!!), and taking a sociology class. Mmhmm I love it, I may turn it into a career.

The other day I saw a man who seemed to be in his 60's running down the main road carrying a lit torch. I can only assume that he intends to say we are all winners. Sweet.

In the paper this morning there was an article on the Southern Baptist Convention. A church called the Journey is taking a stand against the 'moral majority' and has decided the the church does not exist to get people into office (shocker). They have asked other churches to take a look at caring for the environment, and other issues that the 'moral majority' has been ignoring. The convention has stated they will not be funding any more churches that take these stands. This makes me sad, and slightly confused.
Out of curiosity, why is it that all SBC pastors seem to have a drawl? Just wondering....

Oh, and the EU has begun investigating Iran's nuclear program, to see how far they got in the program before closing it down in 2003. We shall see how that goes. They already have the long range missiles down. Bet that's why the EU is interested now, the missiles have a range far enough to reach major european cities. hm.

So I was wondering, is it possible for a person to think objectively, disregarding culture completely? What would that look like? Obviously there is an objective world, but can a person perceive and act without being influenced by society, any society? I'd like to know more opinions if you have one....

So.... book, or hike? Orrrrr both?
