I Could Not Resist- Meet Ray and Kaitlyn


  1. Ray is a Dinosaur, and I'm thin as a rake? Awesome!

  2. Kaitlyn,
    I could not imagined that you would have been the first to comment on this!

  3. That's because Kaitlyn is awesome.

    (Even though she does tend to throw red meat at Ray :P)

  4. Close enough to be eating out of the palm of her hnd.

    Random tangent: can someone who knows their bible help me out with my discussion over at the Swamp beteen AllFiredUp and I? We're discussing Altruism, and AFU contends tht God is a perfect example because he doesn't require anything but repentance and faith. I'm certain their are passages where God explicitly says "worship me" and "glorify me" but I don't know my bible all that well.

  5. Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.' " (Matthew 4:10)

    Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. (Romans 12:1)

    Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not provoke me to anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you. (Jeremiah 25:6)

    You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me (Deuteronomy 5:9)

    But if you or your sons turn away from me and do not observe the commands and decrees I have given you and go off to serve other gods and worship them, then I will cut off Israel from the land I have given them and will reject this temple I have consecrated for my Name. Israel will then become a byword and an object of ridicule among all peoples. (1 Kings 9:5-7)

    All of those are NIV. It is not explicitly said, but if you worship anything but him, YHWH says he will kill you.

  6. That illustration looks familiar; something from Edgar Rice Burroughs?

  7. @theshaggy -

    AFU would be wrong of course. But all passages I can think of would more align 'worship' with 'obedience' (as one interpretation).

    The FSM will save me from the false YHWH god.

  9. I have as much fear of FSM as I do of YHWH ;)

    He can keep his noodly appendages to himself. I doubt they are tentacles and more than likely genticles!

  10. Thanks, folks.

    I always find that I can get one round, maybe two before I need Bible quotes. Which I don't have.

  11. @ LAOF

    It reminded me of Dinotopia, actually.

    (The book. Not sure there's a movie but one can usually assume any remotely entertaining children's book will have been made into a horrible film "adaptation" at some point, so just to forestall...)

  12. kelley r,

    sci-fi channel had a miniseries....

    It is as good as you said.

  13. Oh! How Cute!

    Caption should read: "Here, have some boloney nice komodo dragon!"
