Religion: A gift to the Apex Creation

2015-03-02 12:25

Quite simply - for a while now I have been watching with interest Atheists, Agnostics and “Those of Religion” tear into each other showing little respect or sympathy for the other’s standing.

Hey Max, howya doin'? Let me start right up front - I agree with you, South Africa is NOT a failed state. I was in Zimbabwe a couple of weeks ago, and I have seen what a failed state looks like, first-hand, and it's not us.

Secret of the longevity of Christianity

2015-03-04 14:38

Christianity is the largest religion of mankind and has existed since Paul was knocked off his donkey by Jesus. It should have died off long ago, because it is washed in a history of fables, contradictions and confusion.

Alcohol has never had a permanent place in my brain. When it's there, it's there. When it's not, I hardly give it a passing thought.

I snapped this fire tornado spiralling above Buitenverwachting yesterday late afternoon. It was over 150m in height. It re-occurred for periods of 3-5 seconds over a 5 minute period. They get to 1000 degrees Celsius inside. They form over raging fires such as this one. Very focussed and destructive. Regards - Rens
