    You hope for your god to return and smite the unbelievers....
    To be honest man, I love everyone, even unbelievers, I feel for them too. I have not always been good.

    More than anything, I wish for them to see the goodness of the Lord, I don't want anyone to be smited.

    God bless.

    Yep, and I love you too, TNAfan...

    I'm currently reading the bible and this book my grandmother gave to me called: "Prophetic Guide to the End Times."

    I finished The Wind Of Fire Trilogy already so I'm planning to read another book from the Dune Series. I still can't find the whole set in the library.

    I am reading Ovid's "Metamorphosis" for class.
    Just finished reading "The God Delusion", also for a class.
    Am also reading "Not By Genes Alone" by J. Richardson and Robert Boyd--its about the cultural transmission of certain phenomena and the biological connection (such as the increase of violence in the South due to a "culture of honor" and a corresponding increase in dopamine and heart rate when a Southerner feels that he's been dishonored--that doesn't happen for Northerners). Its pretty interesting so far.

    I just raed an older book written by Teddy Roosevelt titled "The Wilderness Hunter", in which he writes about his various hunts he went on over 100 years ago. It is a good read, but is really not entirely applicable in modern times, as much has changed as far as hunting lands go.

    "The Rifle in America" by Sharpe is also an older book, which discusses the modern firearms at the time of its publication, which is pre WW2 from the late 1930's. It discusses many older firearms, and lays out the progression of firearms up to that time in the US.

    I just purchased the newest version of "Patriots:Surviving the Coming Collapse" by James Rawles. It is being released today and can be found on Amazon.com for less than $11 USD.

    for no reason at all I picked up an old and beat up copy of Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson to re-read - always a fun trip.

    as well I am perusing a new section of Douglas Hofsteader's Metamagical Themas which deals with communication through symbols and the meaning and power we give those symbols through development of complex language and concepts.

    and, as always, I read one of the many Far Side collections in my bathroom because nothing reminds me of the futility of trying to make sense of existence better than Gary Larson's genius.

    I've recently finished reading a novel entitled The Kouga Ninja Scrolls, a beautiful & well written Japanese tragic romantic drama similar to Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, but nowhere near as dull & boring. I doubt anyone else has read it in from my generation, or any other that I know of that's still alive for that matter.

    ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER by SETH GRAHAME-SMITH...

    And, I read a couple books by him years ago, but I've recently re-discovered CLIVE BARKER and I can't get enough!!!

    Also just finished King's UNDER THE DOME a couple weeks ago, as well as MONSTER TRILOGY by David Wellington, and UNDER THE SKIN by Michel Faber. All highly recommendable.

    Survivor, I read Undaunted Courage a while back. Ambrose was a local favorite when I lived down in the Big Easy. My book was signed by him personally for me. Anyway, if you like that book, you need to read his books on WW2, if you haven't read them already.

    Reading One Second After by William Forstchen. Given the subject matter, I would think some of you may have already checked this one out.

    It even has a foreward by Newt Gingrich. That's okay though because I havent been able to put it down.

    It's a story of how America survives after a nuclear EMP cripples the entire nation. It's good stuff!

    I'm currently 3/4 of the way through Metamagical Themas by Douglas Hofsteader, as well as in the middle of The Divine Wind by Inoguchi, Nakajima and Pineau and Mirroshades: A Cyberpunk Anthology edited by Bruce Sterling (I particularly recommend the story Mozart In Mirroshades).

    after that I might re-read an old SeaBee training manual (Construction Battalion if you're wondering) - nothing like knowing how to lay down a gravel road sturdy enough to tracked vehicles, or how to set up a proper mortar emplacement ...
