“If I say” by Jo McCafferty – video remix


Original YT playout date: 13 August 2008
Duration: 4:27

I was given permish by my talk radio friend and not exactly unsigned artist (she has her own label, but if Universal, Sony et al are interested, who knows?) Jo McCafferty who wrote and also performs this lovely song, among numerous others which you can find on her channel http://www.youtube.com/neosome and you can also see her talent on the Sunday night NTTBS shows on my channel.

I remixed the video a little bit, so you can go and see the original prior to the remix over on her channel! I’ll link to it off the video. There are also ways that you can buy the mp3s from her website.

How free are people to make up their own mind?


Original YT playout date: 2 August 2008

Many people can be found on British media and in other western media making broad brush negative comparisons about Islam and Christianity. Now there are SOME Christians who are as strict about forcing people to believe just as there are SOME Muslims like the Egyptian gentleman without his teeth in in this film, who God bless him, understands that faith which is forced under pain of punishment or even execution is valueless in the sight of God, and therefore we HAVE to allow freedom of choice, but from this show you can see very clearly that in Islamic countries there is no way people will accept you saying you are not a Muslim and just leave it at that. There is always going to be a bad consequence. The unwritten rule there is that you say “”I’m a good Muslim”” whatever you happen to think. There is no Christian country and there has not been for hundreds of years (yes, we failed in the past, but then put right the failure), where you cannot build a Mosque, or state yourself to be an atheist. But try building a Church or claiming to be an atheist in an Islamic state and see how far you get.

A comment on “Crazy Bible” by Ray Comfort


People criticise Christians for saying atheism is a religion, set of dogmas or a belief. Atheism is indeed a belief. Saying it isn’t is mere denial of the obvious reality. If I do not know whether a cat in a box is alive or dead, it is not a question of it being both, it is a question of which of these alternatives you believe. One will prove to be correct, but up to that point, both believe. The one who says the cat is dead is not able to say he has fact on his side in view of the absence of evidence of life. The cat is in the box.

If God means, as He tells us He does, to save a people based on their choice in faith and love, then forcing them into faith by parading himself means that the criteria would not work and we would be forced back onto works salvation. In such a case we would need to be good, and there obviously is a problem with being good. I can’t do it and neither can you. That’s why the whole world from Creation onwards contains a structure whereby we may in good conscience believe that the Creator came into Creation to take the punishment so that we could be forgiven based on belief, and so does the Bible. The Bible contains things which invite you to either dismiss it in scorn or to try to see things through the eyes of God. We are told truth in a way that the proud will find it only too easy to reject, while at the same time they readily absorb the lies of the world, from abiogenesis through to the idea that Satan is not controlling politics. The faithful on the other hand find it easy to believe God’s word, and are ultra skeptical about the lies of the world.

So both are belief systems. One is a belief system whose proponents know or ought to know is a belief system, the other is a belief system many of whose proponents think is honest science.

See Lydia Machova’s TED talk – in which the GLM is mentioned. Thank you Lydia.


All the Psalms


For a change this is a Video not from my channel. et me know if it comes down or is unavailable or anything, but this video is truly remarkable.  Eleven hours long, it contains fine choirs, especially Kings College Cambridge judging by the static images accompanying, singing their way through the entire Anglican Psalter.

Beautiful. God be praised.

And here, if the above were not enough, is a wonderful presentation, voice only of 120 top Christian Hymns.

 

Huliganov does Actual Fluency


 

Here’s a video featuring me, audio only you’ll be glad to know, but not from my own Channel. Thanks to Kris Broholm for this.

There is a fuller interview that I do for the Actual Fluency Podcast in my David James voice, this was done as Huli, but unfortunately the technology failed. The stereo, if you have a stereo system, is actually really good, what there is of it.

Enjoy.

Later on today will be the Thursday Poll for this week, on a topical topic, there’s a tautology, this is just an extra post snuck in.

Ths was someone else’s video in Russia, all I did was subtitle it. There are a few vids on the channel where all I was doing was making Russian or Polish or other content available to a wider audience in this way.

Other remarks:

This wasn’t made by me, it was one of those country ads people used to make to push tourism, and as the Beeb were encouraging vloogers to put this on their channels and at the time I had one of the leading Polish channels, I decided to be helpful and upload it. It is quite a nice film but I don’t rate the voice-over guy much, sounds like he doesn’t believe what he is saying.

Still, amazing what you can fit into a thirty second clip. Today the bits of aerial footage would be a lot better as they would be made by drones rather than helicopter which allows for a much closer fly past.

Fitzwilliam crushes Leicester on Uni Challenge


I am particularly pleased to see a Russian student from Fitzwilliam on the team, although Howe who studies Japanese is also a man of taste with his subject of study as well as his articles of tricotage. Subarashii desu ne!

Here they are again some weeks later smashing Magdalen, Oxford, and doing not only themselves and Fitz but all of Cambridge proud;

 

 

And finally they meet their match against Merton:

But an excellent battle and an excellent run, well done!
