I’ve posted this fact for years, but I like the way Joe says it.
“There’s a hundred billion stars in this galaxy alone. There’s hundreds of billions of galaxies in the known universe.” – Joe Rogan #2037
Our sun is an average sized star, and the hundreds of billion galaxies each have an average of 100 billion stars (suns)!
‘It’s all created from nothing; no designer — by chance’ — children are taught in public education.
…that which is known by God is revealed in [men], for God revealed it to them. For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse. – Romans 1:18-20
In comments, flat earthers again try to claim that a fisheye lens was used to cause the curvature, but none were fish-eye lenses.
My Comment — how we know for sure it’s NOT A FISHEYE: At 20:24, the earth’s surface is near the middle of the lens, where fisheye lenses do NOT bend lines. All of the aircraft’s lines are straight, including the lower-right corner, where a fisheye lens would have radically bent them. Also, the earth’s horizon’s curvature is the same no matter where its placed in the frame. There are many different placements of the horizon in this video.
2:50 The plane flew above above 70,000 feet.
16:00 What it was like when Blair saw the curvature of the Earth.
Video should start at 20:24

1:21:30 Jordan Peterson: the necessity of following our conscience
1:26:32 Chris Anthony Lunsford (Oliver Anthony) reads Matthew 22:36-39, saying:
“A Pharisee asks Jesus…
“..which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
If we could learn to make those two commandments… our priority, and then base our differences below that. God is here (hands high), our love for each other here (hands lower), and then below that is try to find a way to integrate our differences in a way that everyone can live a better life. It would resolve a lot of the conflicts….”
1:49:30 Lunsford (Anthony) “There has to be something pure and honest and righteous at the top of our focus, collectively to maintain that.” What Jordan Peterson just described.
Jordan B. Peterson and breakout musician Chris Lunsford, better known by his stage name Oliver Anthony, discuss the balance between vision and efficiency in artistic and commercial endeavors, why Chris’ hit song “Rich Men North of Richmond,” has resonated so broadly and so quickly, the way honest expression through music can combat demoralization, how politics have become confused with the sacred, and what we can do to restore each to their proper order.

I don’t remember it being a formal site back then. Two Palestinian boys told me where it was. My Abbott Loop Bible teacher, John Owen told suggested I walk it, who was kind enough to let me stay with him for 10 days in Jerusalem.
The water was sometimes above my knees. Two teams dug from opposite ends, and where they met can be seen, because the alignment jags there, but not by much, which I found impressive — maybe only a foot or so (it’s been 40 years)?
2-minute video shows what it’s like now:
Woke up this morning
And the first thing I did see
Was mountains rising to the sky
On every side of me
“Unless science is controlled by a greater moral force, it will become the Antichrist prophesied by the early Christians.” – Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974)
Quoted in ‘Antiseptic Christianity’, book review of Lindbergh, Of Flight and Life in Time magazine, (6 Sep 1948)
Rick proves the vast difference; though, I would say NONE of today’s top 10 songs are worth listening to.
Top Comment: “There is some music being made today that is fantastic. Unfortunately, you will never hear it on mainstream radio.”
“Why can’t people just sing harmonies instead of autotuning them?” – Rick Beato
I watch a lot of photography videos, which I rarely mention or post, but this one is exceptional in its grandeur — really is epic!
Mads and Sophie are from Denmark.
I Have Dreamed Of Photographing These New Iceland Locations for Years!
Jesus – Our Source of REAL JOY & Strength!
“Abide in Me … that MY JOY may remain in you,
and that YOUR JOY may be made FULL.” – John 15

TIMING: President Trump is being hunted down by the left, and risks being jailed so he can’t even run in 2024.
SETTING: As is often the case in dreams, my car was different than in real life, and the location was unfamiliar.
THE DREAM: I was standing next to the right side of my car, parked on the street, and President Trump pulled up in a regular car, by himself (no security). He was so interested in what was in my car that he pulled up so close that his bumper almost touched mine. I warned him, so he wouldn’t hit it, and then smiled after he stopped, holding up my thumb and forefinger about 1/8 inch apart. Continue reading “My President Donald Trump Dream 8/14/23”
Is the debate over the Shroud of Turin over? Many Christians believe it was the burial cloth of Jesus and even non-Christian scientists struggle to explain how the image of a man was imposed onto it. But some scientists have claimed that carbon dating has proven it is much younger than previously thought. However, Shroud of Turin Research Project Official Photographer Barrie Schwortz joins Glenn to explain why he’s refuting that claim. According to Schwortz, who was once a “total skeptic” of the Shroud, the carbon dating was improperly done. Instead, he believes the most plausible explanation is simple: “This is the burial shroud of the historic Jesus of Nazareth.”
“The most unhappy people are liberal men. The next most unhappy people are liberal women.”
“The left wing tyrannical types are particularly good at manipulating guilt, which works well on conservatives, because they tend to be more conscientious.”
“People who have nothing to shoot for aren’t happy. … Happiness occurs when you see yourself moving towards a valued goal. … So the higher your goal, the higher your possibility for happiness; even though, you have to suffer from the distance. If you don’t set a goal you’ll never be happy.”
I prefer Glenn Campbell’s version, but Jimmy Webb just mentioned James Taylor recorded his song too, and this has footage of the amazing Redwoods!
Is The Didache a blueprint for the way churches should be?
This is one of the writings of “the early Christian fathers” that I especially liked. It’s big on unity!
What if we compare The Didache to what is practiced in today’s ‘churches?’
But every Lord’s day gather yourselves together, and break bread, and give thanksgiving after having confessed your transgressions, that your sacrifice may be pure. But let no one who is at odds with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned.
Is there even one ‘church’ in America that requires reconciliation? How many pastors have fully reconciled so they’re qualified to lead?
The Didache mentions prophets being a common leadership ministry in the late first century church (like Ephesians 4:11). Where are they in today’s churches?
The Didache also has “the way of death” list that is similar to Paul’s “will not inherit the Kingdom” list in Galatians 5.
“In this video, I travel down to the California redwoods and photograph some impressive trees, beautiful trees with light beams, and the odd rhododendron.” – Adam Gibbs
Lord, THANK YOU for releasing me from the bondage of sin. May you touch the hearts of other people that they may know you deeper and SURRENDER their lives to you. Amen.
“I will praise you Lord, my God with ALL my heart. I will glorify your name forever.”
– David in Psalm 86:12
I LOVE this!!!
A REASON TO WRITE – 1:05:55 @ LIVE: Tucker Carlson WORLD FIRST Interview Since Leaving Fox! – #163 – Stay Free With Russell Brand:
Tucker says having a show on social meeting forces him to write. He’d rather bird hunt or fish, but writing is ‘wonderful!
“What social media offers for me in the short term is an audience, but also a reason to write. I can’t think clearly without writing. … I need to write things out. … Writing a script forces you to think through everything about the issue — to have a much deeper understanding of it. … I couldn’t go too long without writing or my IQ would drop dramatically.”
Alaska’s slow start to wildfire season a relief after Connecticut-sized area burned last year
Alaska is off to the slowest start of a wildfire season in three decades — an immense relief one year after fires scorched nearly enough land to cover Connecticut and even threatened remote Alaska Native communities on the tundra.
Thanks to a cool, wet summer, wildfires so far this year have burned just 1½ times the size of New York’s Central Park. …
Anchorage has only gone above 70 degrees F (21.1 degrees C) once this year.
