Two Questions about Maps

Fingerprints of God

Keizer, OR :: Have you ever noticed how the isobars on a weather map (the lines connecting points with the same atmospheric pressure) look like the fingerprints of God?

Have you ever considered that the 57 boxes of books you are storing at your parents’ house make up a map of your life – where you’ve been, where you’re going, where you want to go?

This will forever change the way I look at weather maps.

But not books?

The response that you have prdveoid shows that you are an articulate christian, however it also shows that you are thinking in the mindset of the majority and that you are not giving consideration to the vast group of people that do not share your belief. 2.1 billion people on this planet are of the Islamic faith as well, I wonder if you would be so passively accepting of Islamic material being passed out by teachers to your children. Do not try to tell me that one faith is any more violent in it’s letter or deed than the other. I don’t think the many atrocities caused by Christian need be brought up, please recall that Hitler himself was Catholic. Teaching your children about your god is important to You.It is very important to Me that as impressionable young children my own kids are protected from the negative byproducts of religion. As a mother I think I am qualified in this respect to decide what is best for my family, whether or not you feel it is best for yours.The question is not about freedom of speech, but of freedom of choice. I do not Have to be a Christian and my children should not be made to feel like outcasts in their publicly owned school because of proselytizing. They will face enough challenges in life as it is. I agree with your point that there are other destructive influences that target our children on a daily basis, but I would like to point out that our fore fathers were wise enough to realize that we should not allow church and state to exist as one. I am agnostic and It pains me that congress found it so vital to re-affirm the country’s motto as In God We Trust in 2006 only to re-re-affirm the very same thing in 2011. Talk about wasting time on unimportant issues. If you would like to influence children with faith based teachings lets go with something less bloody than the bible. Let’s encourage our children in the teachings of the Buddah, or the Tao Te Ching. Both of these encourage a belief in goodness and hold great respect to life, without once saying that those who are different than you (such as gays, mixed race individuals, those of other religions ie: wiccans) should not be suffered to live .
