Yay! Noahs ark found!

Thank goodness that's cleared up and we can get on with groveling before mighty YahWeh. According to a fundy Christian site, Noahs ark has been found at last. They even have pictures, go see for yourself.

It seems that several very qualified people were on the expedition, including:

explorer, adventurer, and featured Worldview Weekend speaker Dr. Bob Cornuke, ...Bob's team consisted of a "Who's Who" of business, law, and ministry leaders including Barry Rand (former CEO of Avis), the author and Christian apologist Josh McDowell, Frank Turek (co-author with Norm Geisler of I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist), Boone Powell (former CEO of Baylor Medical Systems), and Arch Bonnema (president of Joshua Financial).

These aren't some hacks, or Indiana Jones wanna be's. These people have scientific skills. I mean, some of them run businesses. I run a business, so I guess I'm qualified to perform open heart surgery and declare positively that Moses wore pro-keds (size 10 wide).

Apparently finding rocks now counts as conclusive evidence that 8 people managed to feed and house 2 of every kind of animal on the planet. There's no need to use logic, science or reason. All you need is blind faith and it is so.

"These are not the facts you are looking for, move along"

Why is this even in the news? People find evidence every day for UFO's and pixies. Why aren't these Earth Shattering discoveries on ABC news? Why? Because these things aren't real. (Hell, I'm still holding out hope for UFO's, but Noah Ark?)

We as a people have reached a pinnacle undreamt of in our ancient past. We have stood on the surface of the moon, we can fly and have cured diseases thought incurable. And yet we continue to feel the need to grovel before a Daddy-god, begging his approval and fearing his wrath instead of using our brains. I guess it makes things easier that way.

I swear it takes all my considerable will not to make up a super-religion and use my willing, if moronic, followers to mold this miserable little mud ball of a planet into my plaything. It wouldn't matter how whacko or nonsensical my made up religion is. There are people out there who will believe ANYTHING and with the right packaging, marketing and pretty graphics I could be running the whole show.

No rest for the wicked

No sooner was the Bag End Bash over than we had to get back to work. It was off to Origins in Columbus. This is a huge gaming industry event. It covers EVERYTHING. From Parchizi to D20 to LARPS. If you don't know what any of tyhose things are, you haven't played a game in the last 20 years. It's a good thing I got out of gaming a while back. Even so there were so many cool games and gaming accessories.

Must ...resist..shiny...objects...

This was a four day event and sales were good for us. But again we cannot rest on our laurels. Unpack, repack and go set up for the Great Lakes fair and the Silver Leaf fair, both opening this weekend. I am worried that we don't have enough stock. The credit card machine also started acting wonky this weekend and might need to be replaced.

This is the pace of things from now on until the end of October or so. Ah well, I enjoyed the Spring. Thanks again to evenyone who came out for the party. Send me your pics! I have some good ones and will be posting them soon.
