Beautiful, Christmas, and Fire: Isee no GOD up here... NO-GODS-NO-MASTERS.COM prolifeproliberty: metalcatholic: danthesantana: metalcatholic: atheist-freethinker: https://www.no-gods-no-masters.com/anti-religion-atheist-shirts-C84733/ Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin took communion on the moon Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis when in orbit Roger B. Chaffee (Died in Apollo 1 fire) is quoted as saying  “The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way—the way God intended it to be—by giving everybody that new perspective from out in space” James Irwin (Apollo 15) wrote “Being on the moon had a profound spiritual impact upon my life. Before I entered space with the Apollo 15 mission in July of 1971, I was a lukewarm Christian, to say the least! I was even a silent Christian, but I feel the Lord sent me to the moon so I could return to the earth and share his Son, Jesus Christ.” John Glenn the first American to orbit the Earth told reporters  “To look out at this kind of creation and not believe in God is to me impossible. It just strengthens my faith.” These are just a few examples of astronauts that had faith in God. I’m not here to start a debate. Just to say I feel it’s a bit disingenuous to tie in scientific discoveries with a lack of faith when some of the key people in those discoveries clearly had strong beliefs in some form of a higher power. Also the quote is attributed to yuri gagarin the first man in space, however, wether he actually said that0 he saw no god in space is highly disputed, and he may have even been a convinced Christian. Well I don’t think the soviet union took to kindly to any religion so that info doesn’t surprise me. I was trying to figure out if op had a source but couldn’t. Also even if he did say that, I don’t know any Christian who would expect to see God just kind of hanging out in orbit around the earth… Everyone knows God floats about in space like Princess Leia in The Last Jedi

Music, Tumblr, and Work: darktripz: The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C. Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called “cuneiform”. By 2000 B.C., the language of Sumer had almost completely died out and was used only by scholars (like Latin is today). No one knows how it was pronounced because it has not been heard in 4000 years. What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known as a “ngish-gu-di”. The instrument is tuned to G - G - D, and although it is similar to other long neck lutes still in use today (the tar, the setar, the saz, etc.) the modern instruments are low tension and strung with fine steel wire. The ancient long neck lutes (such as the Egyptian “nefer”) were strung with gut and behaved slightly differently. The short-neck lute known as the “oud” is strung with gut/nylon, and its sound has much in common with the ancient long-neck lute although the oud is not a fretted instrument and its strings are much shorter (about 25 inches or 63 cm) as compared to 32 inches (82 cm) on a long-neck instrument. For anyone interested in these lutes, I highly recommend THE ARCHAEOMUSICOLOGY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST by Professor Richard Dumbrill. The location for this performance is the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar’s palace in Babylon. The piece is four minutes long and is intended only as a taste of what the music of ancient Sumer might have sounded like. “The Sumerians” by Grendel Dark

Apparently, Confused, and Dad: "OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO..." / graduated High School this week. When my Dad said he had a present for me thought I was getting some cheesy graduation card. But what I received was something truly priceless Ob, the Col Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled and said that it meant a lot and that I loved that book. But then he told me 'No, open it up." ...On the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. I start tearing up but I'm still confused. He tells me 'Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." He managed to keep this book a secret for 13 years, and apparently everyone else in my life knew about it! Yes the intended effect occured... I burst out in tears Sitting there reading through this book there are encouraging and sweet words from every teacher I love and remember through my years in this small town My early teachers mention my "Pigtails and giggles, while my high school teachers mention my "Wit and sharp thinking... But they all mention my humor and love for life. It is astounding to receive something this moving, touching nostalgic, and thoughtful I can't express how much I love my Dad for this labor of love.
