Part 5, y'all

Wilson v. Hitchens, part 5

I don't know if this is the last one. They said it would be throughout the month of May and this is the last day, so maybe it is.

I changed my!

Here's a new template. I know, it's just another Blogger one, but I wanted to see something different. I was getting tired of the green one.

Anyhoo, we went to my mom's this weekend. Here are a few pictures.

We drove together in Amber's car. We met in Lampasas and we left our car at the hospital. I spent the entire weekend thinking that our car was going to get towed.

One of the many warnings on a gigantic combine (that's for cutting wheat). They are apparently very dangerous. You could get pelted with flying arrows.

My mom put Amber and I to work. Where was Jose? Watching the Sci-fi channel.

It's still very flat out there.

Last but not least, my GRANDMA! She's so cute. We played Skip-bo for about an hour.

Market for cat dentures? HERE!

I just got back from picking my cat up from the veterinary dentist, yes, that is what I said, the VETERINARY DENTIST. Or more specifically, the veterinary dentist/oral surgeon. She had to have 11 rotten teeth removed.

It cost $1150.00uch.

Moral of the story? Take care of your pet’s teeth, or be prepared to have various body parts removed.

Guess who came to visit!

This little guy showed up yesterday in the tree outside our apartment.
This, my friends, is a lesser nighthawk. According to the range map on, Austin is a little north of where he usually hangs out.
He didn't even care that I was standing below waving an empty paper towel tube at him and taking his picture. He just opened his little eyes and looked at me and then went back to sleep. I love him.

Atheists v. Christians, Times 2

There is something in the air this month. Two new debates between Christians and Atheists are out on the web. Check them out.

1. Christianity Today is publishing a correspondence, all this month, between Douglas Wilson (Christian) and Christopher Hitchens (Atheist).

Here is part 1 and part 2.

So far, it's very interesting and promises to get even better as the month goes on. There will be more installments, so bookmark it and check back.

2. ABC online is doing a debate series called "Nightline Face-Off". The series will be about various themes, and this first one is between Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron of "The Way of the Master" and two people from the "Rational Response Squad," Brian "Sapient" and a woman named "Kelly" (those are not their real names).

The Way of the Master is a organization that is dedicated to "seeking and saving the lost the way Jesus did."

The Rational Response Squad is a group that is dedicated to "blaspheming the Holy Spirit" and confronting the "irrational claims" of religion.

Personally, I found that Kelly and Brian (especially Kelly) both acted and spoke with such a condescending and arrogant tone. They just came off as so unlikeable. On the other hand, Ray and Kirk spoke in such a loving and kind way. You could hear gentleness and genuine care in their voices. You really could hear the difference. There is one lady in the audience that yells at Ray and he speaks so kindly in return.

The link to the debate is here, also here.

Let me know what you think!
