I Wanna Be Like The Atmosphere-

I occasionally post little writing compositions of mine here. Here's another(quite possibly far fetched) one. I dunno, these are just what goes on inside my head. It's my take on theology.

In school, I am taking Comprehensive Earth Science. Today we had a very interesting lesson, so interesting I took four pages of notes*(three and a half more pages then I normally take, folks:)). It was titled Earth System Interactions, and it was just cool. It was about the 5 "spheres" in earth science and how they relate.
And just in case you are not taking Comprehensive Earth Science, here's a refresher: Cryosphere(ice), Biosphere(life), geosphere(earth), hydrosphere(water) and atmosphere(air surrounding earth.)
 

The one I think is the most important is the atmosphere. Why? It's what stands between earth and space. It's the first to receive whatever enters earth from space and the last to encounter whatever comes out from earth. It's the boundary between abundant life and eternal, empty void.

Scientifically, it's the main thing that controls and distributes heat, which fuels all the other spheres. It absorbs some, reflects some, transmits some. It controls how much energy enters the earth surface. It is made of nitrogen and oxygen and other gas. It makes all the difference.

Do I make a difference?
 Am more important than a bunch of gas? To most of the world, I'm not. 

I think God made us to be kinda like the atmosphere-We are in contact with God. God pours his love into us so we can distribute it to others. Unlike the atmosphere, we aren't in control of distribution. God makes his will known. We absorb some, reflect some, transmit some. 

How much are we reflecting?
How much are we transmitting?

Like the atmosphere, God uses humans to control how much love enters and leaves the earth. To many, we(Christians) are what stands between others and an eternal empty void.  Sometimes we just absorb all the love(Yeah God, thanks for all the love! Thanks for everything! It's great!)
Sometimes we reflect it.(Uh...God, I don't want to go talk to that homeless person. So yeah, I'm just going to pretend I didn't hear you.)

We've got to transmit it. Because we are more than
5 × 1018 kg of 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.039% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases.

No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.
Matthew 5:15



Like I said, that's my take on theology. Tell me what you think(if it's good. Cause, yah, you know, I don't have much of a self esteem).

 *No Ms. McCawley, I am not counting this post as part of my notes. Does this look like notes? Does this look like it's written in purple gel with green highlighter? Does this look like it's in my blue striped Comprehensive Earth Science notebook? Good.

  1. Cool. So you can hear him, too? You feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost? I didn't know other religions believed that....

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
