September 11, Genesis, Confederate Flag, et al…

11 09 2007

-Today is September 11, exactly six years ago today the nation if not the world changed forever.  In fact even the days of the week fall the same as they did six years ago as today is Tuesday, September 11.  Take a moment, remember where you were when you learned of the disaster and remember what you have today and thank God.


-I’ve been reading the book of Genesis lately.  You know reading the Bible is like any book, when you read it again and again you always find something new.  For instance, in the stories of the world pre-Noah’s Flood the people were able to craft bronze tools and the like.  It makes me wonder how advanced civilization was before they were wiped out?  There was a time I read that some Bible archaeologists think that the pre-flood world was as advanced as our 18th or 19th Century.  That would be amazing, but I don’t think there’s a way to know that until Heaven. 

But don’t get me started on who those beings were that were coming down marrying the women of man.  It was put in there so matter-of-factly, it seems there’s more to that than meets the eye.


-The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports this morning that yet another Confederate flag argument is flaring up in town.  This time is the argument about which Confederate flag to place in the Capital Building.  The leadership is wanting to put the second national while “heritage” groups want the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia to be placed in there.

Bottom line: put the second national in there, we really should put the third national, since that was the official flag at the time of the war’s conclusion in 1865.  But this’ll be another opportunity for extremists on both sides to scream and yell and behave like children with no sense.


-We’re getting a full service Starbucks here soon, the first on the east side of town (east of I-95).  That’ll be real convenient in the mornings, or whenever.  Looking forward to that.

Enjoy your Tuesday!
