Putting Things in Perspective


Ever since we learned how to talk, it was imperative to tell people how old we were, “I am Two”,  “I am three and a half”. Of course, when children say it, it sounds so cute. As we get older, we start measuring things in the same exact way we did as children, using years, days and months; which seems the only normal way of doing things.

We make this much money a year, we will retire at this age or in this many years. All seemed going smoothly until we discovered that animal years are different from that of a human. For instance, a 14 years old dog is considered to be like an 82 years old man in human years. So when we look at a dog that is 14 years old, he might be thinking “This human is more like a dinosaur, he is at least 200-250 years old”, right?

So we just did a comparison between two living organisms, the human being and the dog. We can definitely expand the list to include mammals, fish and all sorts of other species.

Now the fun part begins. I think by now you might have an idea of what I am proposing. Let us compare our human years to the years in heaven. Are they the same? Are they different? Well, what if they’re different. What if one day in heaven is equivalent to one year on earth? What if one day equates to 100 or a million years?

Now here’s where the scary thought really is. What if God has a day off?

If our time here on earth is relatively equal to heaven’s time, then we risk an entire 24 hour without any divine interference due to God’s day off. Think globally now! Galaxies, planets etc… Everything is hanging by a thread.

If our time here on earth is vastly different from heaven’s time, then what? If our earthly 100 years equate to one day, and that happens to be the day God decided to have a day off, then what? Then the fun begins. Do you really want to be around on God’s day off?

You would pray to God, but he’s not listening because it’s his day off. Try praying in a 100 years when he’s available.

P.S: I am not saying that God has a day off. I am not trying to insult anyone, but I’m simply trying to put things in perspective. Be grateful to what you have.

Zombies, Ignorant or Illiterate



Zombies, Ignorant or Illiterate.

I had to give out three options, but in reality there are only two, because if you think about Illiteracy, it really doesn’t fit in. In our blogs we are targeting people primarily that are on Facebook and other social networks. Of course to have an online account in any of the social networks one would be required to have a username and a password, which by default defies ones inability to read and write.

So you’re off the hook in a way. But that would only push you closer to being an ignorant or a Zombie.

Zombies, on the other hand, have not been proven to be real, which is a shame because many would mentally fit right into that description. Unfortunately, since we’re not looking at things in the literal term, we have to flush down that idea as well.

I guess we’re left with the last item on our menu handpicked from a wide selection of synonyms, “The ignorant”. Before I proceed, you must understand that not everyone is fortunate enough to earn this title, after all you have to work really hard for it. It really doesn’t choose you, but you do.

For all those that have been reading our blogs in secret or openly, we truly thank you. But above all, to the ignorant ones that have been purposely avoiding a mental stimuli, I must thank you more than anyone else, because whether you know it or not, you just gave us another idea for a blog, and I dedicate it to you.

It’s a shame you won’t know about it, because most probably you won’t read it.
