The sunrise in Arkansas is pretty.

Stayed up all night and watched the sun rise over the forest.  :)  My bro stayed up with me.  Hooray moments like these in life.

Of course, it means I’m only just now going to sleep (6:30 am).  I’ll get around to ranting and raving after some snoring.

    It’s too bad that you can’t actually appreciate a sunrise because you don’t accept that zombie Jesus saved you from a torture pit his dad made because his standards is too high.

    Sounds awesome! Did you take pictures?

    “Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be…” -Matthew 24:32-39

      Is there a reason you’d want to ruin the beauty of a sunrise with that nonsensical crap?

      And do you have some bible citation generator to make sure that whatever you quote is as irrelevant as possible?

      • Park James

        A verse that long windedly tells us we’re going to die by drowning? Seems relevant to me!

          Detected word “wind”. Executing.

          “Just then, seven ears of grain, scrawny and scorched by the east wind, sprouted after them” Genesis 41:6

          Actually, the rainbow was the original promise from God that He would not destroy the world again by water – not a stolen symbol of “gay” licentiousness.
          The next time around it’s going to be fire.

          • Jasper

            Detected word “Fire”. Executing.

            “(1) Their likeness is as the likeness of one who kindled a fire; then, when it lighted all around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness. (So) they could not see.” Al-Baqara 2:17

          • Park James

            So before the ark, there were no rainbows? Light didn’t reflect before the ark? You should get a paper on that peer reviewed.

            Edit: if you can prove this you deserve a nobel prize.

            Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, “Now behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your descendants after you; and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth.” God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.” -Genesis 9:8-17

            I never thought about whether there were ever any rainbows before the one that God gave as a sign of His Covenant to Noah. Thank you. Upon closer inspection, I do not think it specifically says that there was never a rainbow prior to this one. It does say that God would be forever reminded of His Covenant promise not to destroy humanity by the waters of a flood upon the appearance of a rainbow. Does anyone read this differently?

          • Jasper

            “Bow in the cloud” can translate only loosely to “rainbow”.. but probably close enough.

            “(3) Do they then wait for anything other than that Allah should come to them in the shadows of the clouds and the angels? (Then) the case would be already judged. And to Allah return all matters (for decision).” – Al-Baqara 2:210

            B…b…b…but that’s from the wrong holy book! Godbot is malfunctioning!

          • Jasper

            You’re obviously mistaken. These truth-bits are taken directly from searchtruth.com

            Why would they call it truth if it’s not true? checkmate

            That was the most boring and idiotic article I’ve ever read. If I had chosen to have a lobotomy instead of clicking that link, I would have a) had more fun, and b) lost fewer brain cells. However, that article is more proof that a moral god does not exist; no God who was good in any way would make a human being with a brain that works so poorly.

            Here’s a challenge: link to something even less relevant. I dare you. (Pro Tip: Holy Books are great sources of irrelevant nonsense, as you’ve discovered.)

            Let me see if I can retrace the discussion.

            1) OP mentions enjoying the ocean.

            2) You burst into the room and declare loudly some barely relevant passage from your favorite story book.

            3) We briefly discuss whether rainbows – the scattering of light through mist, existed before the event the story book talks about.

            4) Now, all of a sudden, we’ve digressed again into people’s Periodolia-on-Steroids about retroactively connecting floods to political events – which is so open to arbitrary retrodiction that it’s absurd – any bad event (which are common) can be tied to any political decision by a society (which are common).

            And now you’re warning us about your genocidal maniac in the sky about to do his thing because he doesn’t like the fact that society is growing up and deciding to not be quite so bigoted against a demographic of its citizenry.

            The article was for the big people in the room, Jasper. I left a little sing-a-long at the end for you and the rest of the chipmunks.

      *poof* I’M NOW A CHRISTIAN

        Given their religion’s longstanding mistreatment of gay people, I’m not sure your choice of sound effect was the best one ;-)

    • Jasper

      I really do wonder what Christians are thinking when they Tourettes-style spout off Bible quotes.

      Do they think it’s some kind of spell book, and they’re reciting spells at us? Do they think that if we just hear some of the quotes (assuming we haven’t read the damn thing ourselves), that we’ll stagger backwards in a wave of epiphany?

      All it amounts to is being annoying, that this person apparently is enamored with a crude and primitive dusty book of bronze-age myths, decides that we randomly need ambush-recitals about it.

      No, it’s only reinforcing in my mind that their minds are immutable and incapable of the most rudimentary level of critical thought.

      Omg a christian knows how to copy paste.
