Let's get to Year Zero
« on: October 20, 2013, 05:20:50 PM »
The development of history, whose responsible for what...

Thus far we have:

Darwin ----- > Nazism
British Imperalism ---- > Darwin
William The Conqureror ---- > British Imperalism

The end of history is obviously Godwin's Law btw.

Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

I read the title, and though that "Year Zero" was referring to the current Batman comic story arc "Zero Year."

Oh well,

I think you are on to something.  William the Conqueror killed Godwin's son, afterall.

(year zero) God makes Adam and Eve, they fall into sin, 7000 or so years later place looks like the hell you see around you. Therefore, God must pay! You guessed it, THE CROSS WILL DO JUST FINE!

Only 7000, huh?  Did you calculate that with a visit to the Creation Museum in Cincinnati? :laugh:

The gift shop at the museum is awesome.

If anyone plans on going, I have tips. Start a new thread.
