A THANKS TO WRITERBEAT

  Hmmm. Just got news from Autumn that I'm quite high up in the WB ranking. That's nice. I'm sitting here in front of the keyboard, type the hell out of my hands, have a cigarette burning away and a can of beer beside me. And I'm feeling honored. Why ? It's only a website. But a different one.   I think of when I started here almost 3 years ago. I can't remember exactly how I came here, but I did. First I thought, well, ok.

"Nation shall speak peace unto nation" is the Motto of the beloved British Broadcasting Company.

Did Mankind Change God?

I'm all about the New Testament of the Bible. I'm absolutely no Bible-banger, far from, but I'm proudly a Christian and Jesus is awesome. I'm not being sarcastic or anything, it's honestly the way I feel. However, I have had a VERY long issue with the Old Testament God. I really don't like him so mu…
