This is in China, it's suppose to be Buddha. Being an former Buddhist myself, I know Buddha was never a god but lets be thankful we don't do stuff like this with Christ. Could you imagine a giant naked baby Christ climbing a building......... :laugh:

This Iraqi Christian boy, whose family fled Islamic State militants in Mosul, poses for a picture at a Catholic church in Irbil, Kurdish northern Iraq.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I love the face. The pic seems like a meme even without a text. The Bulgarian yiayia is not amused.

Nope, just correcting one's posture in preparation for a parade.

And that's why gyros have a bad fame in Brazil. :)
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Comparison between Pythagorean tuning (blue), equal-tempered (black), 1/4-comma meantone (red) and 1/3-comma meantone (green). For each, the common origin is arbitrarily chosen as C. The degrees are arranged in the order or the cycle of fifths; as in each of these tunings all fifths are of the same size, the tunings appear as straight lines, the slope indicating the relative tempering with respect to Pythagorean, which has pure fifths (3:2, 702 cents). The Pythagorean Ab (at the left) is at 792 cents, G# (at the right) at 816 cents; the difference is the Pythagorean comma. Equal temperament by definition is such that Ab and G# are at the same level. 1/4 comma meantone produces the "just" major third (5:4, 386 cents, a syntonic comma lower than the Pythagorean one of 408 cents). 1/3 comma meantone produces the "just" minor third (6:5, 316 cents, a syntonic comma higher than the Pythagorean one of 294 cents). In both these meantone temperaments, the enharmony--here the difference between Ab and G#--is much larger than in Pythagorean, and with the flat degree higher than the sharp one.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).
