At this point, the only option is a running diary. They make listening more fun.

The peak will always be Axver's review of LMP's DI4 list, but there have been some other good ones.

melon and yolland are really the only two I take seriously. I've never been so keen on Irvine. He seems like a good guy, but yeah, the condescending tone he sometimes uses gets me. I feel it's hard to have a discussion with him if you disagree even a little.

Oh, I do love it whenever Earnie Shavers shows up, too. Shame we haven't had a good Australian politics thread for a while. And I wonder if anybody will show when I make a thread for the 2008 New Zealand election once its date is announced.

I don't think I was really that harsh or condescending.

I mean, I know LMP took it that way and I feel bad about that. I've been more careful since. But by my standards of rubbishing music, I thought I was tame and in it more for the lulz than anything.

I love that Melon is a great Bible study, so he has the rare ability to correct the religious right on their cornerstone: the Bible. They usually quote that all the time in debate with liberals because most haven't read the whole thing through and don't really care what it says. Melon has studied it greatly and knows it much better than those who merely think they do, and that fucking owns everyone.

I can kind of see why melon keeps at it, too, as there is a bit of a thrill at owning the religious right at their own game. My stepbrother tried to convert me to Christianity last month after I told him I'm an atheist. The tone of the discussion rather changed when he revealed he hadn't even read all of the Gospels, let alone all of the New Testament or the whole Bible, while I've read the entire Bible twice and the New Testament nine times. Fun times.

One day, I'd love to have even half the depth of knowledge of it as melon clearly does. Sure, I don't believe it and think most of it is borderline ridiculous, but the role it has played in history, society, and politics makes it a source of endless interest.

Also, yes, I did just say I'm an atheist. I think it's become increasingly apparent over the last couple of months that I'm a little more than just agnostic. I figure I better be honest with myself.

That is epic fail. He meant well, but you really don't have to reveal information that pwns you like that.

I'm pretty sure I've read every book except a few in the OT. I've read the New Testament over and over.

I've never read the Bible. I've heard it read in church, that's it. I've no interest in it.

To be perfectly honest, you aren't really missing much when it comes to certain Old Testament books. I've read some Old Testament books repeatedly - to this day, I love Ecclesiastes (it has always been my favourite book, actually). But some of the random minor prophets don't add anything new or earth-shatteringly important. This is why I've only read the entire Old Testament twice.

I do hope everybody who actually believes Christianity has at least sat down and taken the time to read Genesis, Exodus, Proverbs, Job, Isaiah, and of course Ecclesiastes. I couldn't tell you how many times I have read Ecclesiastes.

And every fundie must read Song Of Solomon.

By the way, just curious: what translations? I'm a big fan of the Amplified version, simply for the different ways it gives you to read sentences and the depth of interpretation you can draw from that. My own copy of the Amplified version is falling to bits.

I must admit I'm jealous of the Maj., since he's learning the ancient Greek to read it in its original language. I've tried to teach myself a bit of ancient Greek, but that unfortunately hasn't gone anywhere yet ...
