Thank you, Orthonorm, along with thanks to everybody who has actually even bothered to respond. So far it has gotten like 90 views and only three people cared to get involved.

Anyway, I feel really ashamed for this, but is it wrong that right now I feel like I don't want to attend any of the Pascha services this weekend until I find answers to my questions because I feel angry at God and because I'm worried He will be angry with me if I come to His temple with a doubting spirit?

When are you to be received?

I was supposed to be received this Holy Saturday but my Priest delayed it because he wants me to attend Church more and 'participate' in the Holy life of the Church more often. He's taking it at a slow pace because I cannot attend as often as I would like because I'm dependent on my parents to take me to Church. I'm afraid now that if I ask him about a bunch of questions and doubts I am having, he will dely it even longer.
And how is that bad for you?

I'd say go to the Pascha services and let everything else work itself out on God's time.

My best friend whom I've known for like seven years asked me if I could help him and his family move this Saturday. This Saturday night is the beginning of Pascha; my first Pascha--the most important Church event of the year. What should I do? I told him I could come but I'd need to be back home by a certain time.

Bloody Hell, what happened? I look at my iPhone and half of my contacts are missing for some reason. I think I discovered a bug. I do not have mobileme and I did not sync it or anything; they just disappeared. I tried shutting it off and syncing it on iTunes and nothing happened. Anyone have any advice? Maybe they will just reappear?

Before the board shutdown, here is a great article (or rather chapter) that may be helpful in understanding the first gospel reading tonight :

:-( My first Pascha is ruined. My parents will only let me stay for half of it on saturday night. No wonder I haven't been Baptised yet, because my damn parents make my situation so hard.

Sorry to hear that James and further to hear of your frustration in the other thread you started.

You are right. There are no comforting words when life feels like hell. Piety is the death of care.

It sounds like your life is very painful. And adding Orthodoxy to the mix sure ain't going to fix a lot of that, at least not immediately and forever.

The board will be shutting down soon.

Telling someone you will pray for them when their world seems a shambles and God is not there rings incredibly empty in my experience.

But I will pray. Perhaps more importantly for you perhaps, everything you have said sounds exactly right given your circumstances. And I am sorry you have to go through all this.

Hang around till after Pascha and let's see if cutting out some of the hyperdox and getting down to some basics won't help. It always seems to work for me.

Remember, sometimes the only prayer you can pray is to tell God where to go.

That's OK.

Hang in there buddy. Again reading your posts here, you've been on my mind and in my heart more than a few times.

No matter how your Pascha looks, know more than a few will you have in their hearts during theirs. As little comfort as that might be.

You guys should switch to wrong Easter date. OC.net being down due to Orthodox Easter violates my Internet routines and drives me into desperate measures. Yesterday I had to read Sacrosanctum Concilium due to being unable to recitate some well-mannered and properly argumented thread in Orthodox-Catholic board.

I wonder what the downside of this genetic engineering may be. Before we rejoice in this news, I think it wise to take a look at the potential dark side of this.

Something else to ask: Where are these stem cells coming from?

A genetically engineered flu virus that has 99.9% communicability and a 100% mortality rate within hours of acquisition? (Seems to me like something straight out of a Stephen King novel.)

They already made a movie about that in the 1990s.

Cure for HIV/AIDS just around the corner! Hurray! Does this mean that I can fornicate now?

Just kidding. Being serious, what do you think that this potential cure means for the future?

I wonder what the next big disease will be?
A genetically engineered flu virus that has 99.9% communicability and a 100% mortality rate within hours of acquisition? (Seems to me like something straight out of a Stephen King novel.)

Airborne ebola would be much more spectacular.
Hardly. The superflu Mr. King engineered in his novel went airborne and couldn't have been any less devastating.

The most horrible thing I can think of is something invading our ears and implanting themselves in there. Then they will drone in a way which sounds exactly like a Katy Perry song, such that we will essentially have to listen to Katy Perry music 24/7 for the rest of our lives. And to add to the problem, because the entity in our ears would use us as hosts, it would use certain super powers to keep us alive and increase our average age to about 150.

If the song is Hot and Cold, then fair enough.  If it's anything else that witch has done...suicide is always an option.

Out of curiosity, what type of course on epistemology? I mean, are you going to have an overview type thing, or more like exploring one particular view in depth?

Here I am, yet again
Avoiding the stack of books
On the coffee table
Why do you avoid them, Justin?
Do you not love to read?
But of course I do!
Did you not specifically choose these books,
Out of millions available?
Surely I did!
Did you not wait eagerly for them to arrive?
Yes, yes
Then why do you sit at a computer,
While they call out to you?
I do not know.

Well, I confess that I am a musical snob. I have a few pet peeves when it comes to music. One of them is "blues flute". No matter how hard they tried, hippies weren't living the blues. Get high and play your flute, but stick to folk music. Don't try to incorporate flutes and zithers into Blues. Another pet peeve is "percussion sections" with no rhythm. I've met way too many Dead Heads who think they are percussionists because they carry a tamborine or a set of bongos. Santana was the only band that could still sound tight while playing on acid, and even Carlos's psychedelic days were short lived. He realized very quickly that tight blues jams are rarely produced by hallucinogenics.

OK, that's my musical snob rant.


As for perhaps the most prominent example of "blues flute," Canned Heat provides it here:

The first half of the course will be an overview of different thinkers and topics in epistemology. The second half will focus on Thomistic realism and Thomistic responses to non-realisits.

Dylan and The Beatles didn't paly blues jams (and Dylan certainly wasn't a good harmonica player). Hendrix did play blues, but in spite of his talent, I would never describe his playing as "tight." He was all over the place, and he sounded like he was playing on acid. Great guitarist, but I never really liked his music. But that's just my two cents.
