Too good not to share.
The WTF meter really spiked when I noticed this church sign. I could only make out the first two lines, which was really confusing and a little out of place for the typical ‘you will love our god or he will torture you for eternity’ nonsense.
I was genuinely curious and even seriously considered visiting this church to see if they were having a discussion
, sermon, or talk about Chaos Theory.
Chaos In A Nutshell
Here is a quick overview of Chaos Theory and what it involves.
Edward Lorenz, the pioneer of Chaos Theory, summarized it as:
When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future. [Wikipedia]
Chaos Theory exists in several natural systems and has applications in areas such as: meteorology, sociology, physics, computer science, engineering, economics, and biology.
Debunking Chaos Theory
Since I enjoy all things science and have a severe allergy to bullshit, I was curious to know what this church had to say on the topic of Chaos Theory and how they arrived at the ‘debunked’ conclusion.
The following afternoon I found myself on the same road and took a closer look, hoping to see if there was a discussion date listed.
A good friend of mine shared a great article titled: An Open Letter to My Friends Who Support Donald Trump.
I decided to add my own .02¢ comment in (what I considered) reasonable support of the author’s sentiments.
It is stunning that some people refuse to heed the mistakes of the very recent past and those that want to take everyone back there.
The Japanese Internment camps were wrong. Segregation was wrong. Slavery was wrong. We fought wars amongst ourselves to rise above racism and hatred. In WWII more than 60 million people died worldwide. Why? Because of twisted people who were whipping up the population into a frenzy and making ridiculous statements, killing innocent people simply because of their race or religion. The United States lost more than 400,000 lives fighting in that war.
Suddenly, without warning, a wild Trump supporter appears.
I try to avoid lengthy replies on other people’s timelines, however this random encounter appeared to be a decent exercise and my friend gave me the ‘green light’ to reply directly to the Trump supporter. Yay! 😀
I know that nothing I type will have any effect on a person with the critical thinking ability of an A.M. talk radio parrot and the end result is one hundred percent what I expected.
Kim Davis’ final form?
IMDB: War Room
Filled with heart, humor, and wit, WAR ROOM follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple who seemingly have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, their marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With guidance from Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. As the power of prayer and Elizabeth’s newly energized faith transform her life, will Tony join the fight and become the man he knows he needs to be? Together, their real enemy doesn’t have a prayer.
