Since many of you now know that I'm gay. I have to say one thing. Once upon time I thought G.W.Bush is sexy.

I'm not gay and somebody doesn't?

Newly-discovered ‘ring of teeth’ helps determine what common ancestor of moulting animals looked like

A new study of an otherworldly creature from half a billion years ago – a worm-like animal with legs, spikes and a head difficult to distinguish from its tail – has definitively identified its head for the first time, and revealed a previously unknown ring of teeth and a pair of simple eyes. The results, published today in the journal Nature, have helped scientists reconstruct what the common ancestor of everything from tiny roundworms to huge lobsters might have looked like...

I will continue to label myself Christian, and Anglican, in respect for my baptism. Even though I still struggle with doubts. I don't believe it is fair to dismiss it that easily because of some doubt.

John Alexander Dowie, the founder of Zion, Illinois and a prominent faith healer who influenced Pentecostalism and claimed to be the prophet Elijah (!) in a spiritual sense. Dowie also taught British Israelism. He, like his successor Wilbur Voliva, was a proponent of flat-earth theories.

And to top all that off, he ended up losing a "prayer duel" (mubahala) to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, an Indian from Punjab who himself claimed to be a prophet, the Messiah (in the likeness of Jesus), and the Mahdi. Dowie had claimed the Christ would destroy the Muslims when he returns, a claim Ahmad obviously found offensive when he became aware of it, so Ahmad challenged Dowie to a "prayer duel" and whoever outlived the other would be considered the winner. Dowie died one year before Ahmad.

While we're on the topic of weird cults, the Agapemonites built this church in Upper Clapton in London. It was since taken over by the Old Catholics and now is used by the Georgian Orthodox Church.



Two of the Agapemonite leaders claimed to be God, and the second (John Hugh Smyth-Pigott) also had his own feud with Mirza Ahmad, who told him he would die if he didn't recant his blasphemous claim. The cult consisted primarily of wealthy unmarried women, many of whom the leaders took as "spiritual brides" (but not really spiritual!)
