Stig Is Gone!

He Lives has always been one of my favourite blogs and in the last couple of days, its creator David Heddle has been on fine form. His recent post on Dawkins being a second-rate atheist was especially well argued. In his latest entry though he quotes extensively from Augustine and it would do your soul good just to drop over there and read it. As a fore-taste, here is the final sentence:

For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion.

I had an absolutely manic day that has me wanting to weep. When will this job get easier! When will Friday come and I’ll be able to relax? Argh I say. Argh. I was wandering around town today like homeless man dreaming up content for a book though. “Half finished thoughts with Michael Stipe” would be the title and it would open with the best ever description of sin’s effects on the Self involving an illustration from Commodore 64s you could ever imagine. Anyone feel like paying me to write that?

I didn’t think so.

I’ll go back to photocopying then.

    Such blatant exploitation of Stig’s good name! I come to this site for one reason, because it mentions Stig, only to find myself reading a completely unrelated article in which I had no interest and no intentions of ever reading except for the promise that it held Stig’s name. Neither did any of the links produce what was promised. In future I will be hitting ^F and scanning any such documents for “Stig”, or as he is known to his true friends, “Stigmund”. I will completely ignore the rest of the sentence containing said name. It will be enough for me to simply read it and roll it around my tongue, longingly.

    That aside, I enjoyed this post.
