Re: 0900: "Religions"

Personally, I don't get why people are so obsessed with the Rapture supposedly happening on one date or another. In multiple places in the Bible, Jesus clearly states that No one knows the day or the time. The angels in heaven don't know, and the Son himself doesn't know. Only the Father knows. So w...

Re: books you read for school and actually enjoyed

I remember that in elementary school we had to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Then in middle school, we had to read The Hobbit and some short story about the Dragonriders of Pern. The combination of these books got me into the whole sci-fi/fantasy genre.
