Interesting Website For Apologetics

September 24, 2008

Just came across a website I hadn’t noticed before, it’s for people interested in Christian apologetics that focusses on science and faith. It’s at and looks surprisingly similar to Wikipedia. I haven’t had much of a chance to look around but if it’s your kind of topic you may want to check it out.

Last night I had a dream that the lawn mower was so clean we brought it into the loungeroom, and everyone remarked on how clean our lawn mower is.

True story (that I dreamt it, that is.)

It’s probably a reference to our horrendously messy front lawn that hasn’t been mown for weeks thanks to the much-needed rain!

More Batman!

August 13, 2008

Ok, I’m not usually one to rabbit on about movies and stuff, especially as I am not particularly into movies. However, I do have a few favourites and, finally seeing The Dark Knight last night I must say I was soooooo amazed!! It was awesome and I thought it was fantastic. Between that and Batman Begins, I have been convinced of the plausibility of the Batman story. I love the dark, moody Batman vibe. It does it for me way more than the 1990s plastic-feeling movies. (The early originals were pretty entertaining, though!!)

According to Wikipedia, the character Batman traces back to the late 1930s. Two-Face is from 1942, and the Joker 1940. Amazing how these modern movies have such a rich history in comic book lore!

Growing up in the 1990s, I regularly watched the Animated Series (, featuring Mark Hamill as the Joker! As life is, ideally, an amalgam of Star Wars and Batman, it seems a perfect match!

Anyway, I’ve rambled on enough. I’m sick, and I’m meant to be writing a uni assignment on Australian agriculture. Here’s some links, and every other reference can be found on Wikipedia.
