Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup

And a Happy Sunday to all! This pinup is by Edward Runci, with an addition. It is in honor of today being National Crab Stuffed Flounder day. Hey, don’t look at me, I didn’t make it up.

It is also in honor of the troops, of which 182 Representatives voted to support. I have another pinup, you can go to photobucket to see it, by Alberto Vargas, which fits the bill. Warning, it has a wee bit of upper body (yes, hooters) nudity, as so many Vargas’ do.

What do I see out there on ye olde Bloglines(e)?

Lots more great stuff out there, check around, Sea Dogs!

    10-4 W.T. Phone Home! Thank-You for the VICTORY pin-up by Alberto ‘V’argas, and did Edward Runci draw today’s Sunday pin-up from the South Myrtle Beach pier? I miss the MBAFB A-10 Warthog Thunderbolt days…and the Alabama ‘Bowery’ days…
    MB is getting ready for Canadian-American week. My Daytona-500 $$$ today is on #48 Jimmy Johnson and his Lowe’s Team!

    It’s often stated that evolution actually working is akin to a tornado going through a junk yard and assembling a working automobile. There are far more facts proving ID rather than evolution. But it doesn’t flow with the agenda of the left, so it is ignored. People want to live their lives, enjoy their sins, and not worry about any potential eternal consequences. Me, the belief in evolution ended when I felt my first child kick for the first time. That precious little life, that perfect little life; did not come about my accident. Every little finger and toe; every little hair on his body; only God could be capable of something like that. Hmm.

    W.T. Phone Home. I witnessed my son’s birth and it was the greatest sight to behold at my frau’s side. Darth Crusader Jr. did not come from a monkey, nor from the Geico Caveman! He did not come from the Big Bang Theory either for I was the big bang my fellow patriot! I’ve flown around the world in war and peace, and have seen death and destruction from nature and radical Islamomaniacs conus and overseas! Daily I look at the sun, the moon, the stars and thank GOD for my blessings. My father – Devil Dog Gunny Pop – said in WW II and in the Korean War combat battles, in the end, there were NO atheists that died in combat! However, I do believe that Democrat Liberals may come from a horse’s ass…a mule’s ass … and
    a jackasses ass! Perhaps they even may come from King Kong and Mighty Joe Young as well! As for Godzilla – NO!!

    Stacy,

    The junkyard analogy doesn’t work since evolution is an incremental and cumulative process, not a simultaneous one. Regarding your feelings about God and your first child, I can relate. I have two of my own and they are true miracles. However, I do not believe faith in God and the theory of evolution are mutually exclusive.

    By the way…I am also a registered Republican.

  6. Stacy says:

    Silke-you’re entitled to that opinion. We could debate forever, starting with the Laws of Thermodynamics. Not gonna do it. It’s a lot of the little things that make me believe in ID. How our hearing works, our vision, everything within our bodies; can’t believe that that just happened.

  7. Silke says:

    Stacy,

    There is nothing in the theory of evolution that says it “just happened.” Chance plays a part, but this argument ignores the fundamental role of natural selection – which is the very opposite of chance. Regarding you reference to the Laws of Thermodynamics, as I understand it there is nothing in the theory of evolution that violates those laws.

    Incidentally, if you’re interested in an evolutionary explanation for how the human eye evolved I recommend this…

    Again, I don’t believe this takes God out of the equation. I like how Charles Krauthammer describes it…

    “What could be more elegant, more simple, more brilliant, more economical, more creative, indeed more divine than a planet with millions of life forms, distinct and yet interactive, all ultimately derived from accumulated variations in a single double-stranded molecule, pliable and fecund enough to give us mollusks and mice, Newton and Einstein?”

  9. Silke, that actually sounds like Intelligent Design.

  10. Silke says:

    Teach, if you read the article, this is what Krauthammer says about ID:

    “Let’s be clear. Intelligent design may be interesting as theology, but as science it is a fraud.”

    The theory of intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection. So when you say, “that actually sounds like Intelligent Design” you are equating two very different things.

    A better term for what you are describing is theistic evolution which holds that God directs and guides the unfolding of life forms over millions of years through evolution. Of course this is more a philosophical view than a scientific one since God is outside of science. The point is, faith and evolution are not mutually exclusive.

  11. Stacy says:

    The reference to energy is simple. Where did the initial energy come from? I have dozens of resources; but the one thing I’ve learned is that this is always a losing argument; that’s why I never really pursue it. To live life with no eternal hope is very, very sad. Believing, knowing in my case; that there will indeed be true justice; that we were not an accident; that that flutter in my heart when I think of my husband; were all from God brings me peace and joy. Best of luck to you Silke.

  12. Silke says:

    Stacy, I appreciate your comments.

    Stacy said: The reference to energy is simple. Where did the initial energy come from?

    The earth is not a closed system. The energy could have come from the sun, an asteroid, etc. Keep in mind too that evolution does not describe how life started (that is a separate field in biology called abiogenesis), it describes what happened once life began.

    Stacy said: To live life with no eternal hope is very, very sad.

    I agree. But what does that have to do with what we are discussing? Again, couldn’t the theory of evolution be the answer to how – not who? I brought this up earlier but you never addressed it.

    “…In our own solar system and on earth (formed about 4.5 billion years ago), the conditions have been favorable to the emergence of life. While there is little consensus among scientists about how the origin of this first microscopic life is to be explained, there is general agreement among them that the first organism dwelt on this planet about 3.5-4 billion years ago. Since it has been demonstrated that all living organisms on earth are genetically related, it is virtually certain that all living organisms have descended from this first organism. Converging evidence from many studies in the physical and biological sciences furnishes mounting support for some theory of evolution to account for the development and diversification of life on earth, while controversy continues over the pace and mechanisms of evolution. While the story of human origins is complex and subject to revision, physical anthropology and molecular biology combine to make a convincing case for the origin of the human species in Africa about 150,000 years ago in a humanoid population of common genetic lineage.”

    Incidentally, this passage is from the International Theological Commission on Communion and Stewardship, July 23rd 2004 (Chapter 3, Section 1. Science and the stewardship of knowledge, paragraph 63).

  13. Stacy says:

    And the first books of the Old Testament state geographical and scientific knowledge unknown to any human at that point in time.

  14. Stacy says:

    And this is why I will not come back to this post for any further comments:

    Every atheist I have ever had this conversation with cannot rest unless they have the last word and affirm to themselves through that last word that they must indeed be right. They simply cannot except the fact that there are people out there who refuse to believe their theory. People who believe in something greater than themselves. People who also think with their hearts. I’ve seen enough miracles, I’ve seen enough of God working in peoples’ lives to believe. That’s why it’s called “faith”.

    I’m out of here.

  15. Silke says:

    Stacy,

    I am keeping an open mind and am trying to understand your perspective – but I do agree with you that there are some out there (from both sides of the debate) who believe what they believe regardless of the evidence. I am not an atheist. Unfortunately this has become a theological (rather than a scientific) discussion. I know you said you do not intend to comment any further but I would be very interested in hearing why you think God could not be the guiding force behind evolution?

    Thanks.

    Stacy…The Mothership hears you loud and clear.
    I just turned ’50’ and am blest & thank GOD for every sunrise and sunset that I witness, and for my family and freedoms, and for the 50 years He has given me on His earth! Crosses are carried, battles are won and lost, but in the end, some of us know where we’ll be going. It’s all GOOD and such a…rewarding experience, especially when secularists ignore 47 million abortions since 1973. Also, the secularists want to take GOD from the Pledge of Allegiance, CHRIST from CHRISTMAS and the Nativity Manger scenes from our public arenas. THEY don’t even know the words to the Pledge of Allegiance nor to the Star Spangled Banner…THEY want IN GOD WE TRUST off our US Currency as well…But that’s their FIXATIONS – not OURS. GOD bless….remember…It’s ALL good!

    Teach said this on Hooah Wife: When I run across those who push creationism and ID, I ask for proof, just like with Evolution.

    Teach, why aren’t you asking Stacy for proof of ID?
