    so do people do lent out of some sort of tenuous grasp on their fading religious attachment or is it a meaningless goal thing like a new years resolution sort of deal

    It's either/or

    Pretty much why I don't really bother with it any more

    I don't know from lent as I was not raised catholic

    I wasn't raised anything specific, really, just generic christian

    best way to go about things really, if you're gonna go the jesus route, no fancy rules

    Lots of Protestant denominations do the Lent thing too

    I was raised Methodist, for example

    I gave up Subway and have not had Subway yet today.

    I will probably get some tomorrow night or Tuesday.

    See, it was a sacrifice because I had to eat more college food instead of going there twice a week.

    Did you guys know that contained in the story of Lent in the bible, that is Jesus' 40 days of meditation and temptation by the devil

    there is a passage that implies the world is flat

    It only implies that if you are three and think that the reason why Wile E. Coyote hangs in the air after he runs off a cliff is because he is an excellent actor.

    maybe people did believe the world was flat

    there's a bunch of shit in the bible that's all cockamamie

    doesn't take away from the moral lessons one can learn from it

    people who take it as a completely factual account of our past and our future are fucking insane, however

    I didn't say it was all untrue, ya goober.

    Jesus was probably crucified, but whether or not he died "for our sins" is open to interpretation.

    and feel free to derail the thread, that's what we DO here.

    Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."

    Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'[a]"

    Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6"If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written:
    " 'He will command his angels concerning you,
    and they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

    Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'[c]"

    Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."

    Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'[d]"

    Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

    But wait, continuing with the thought experiment of the earth being flat, you still couldn't see all the kingdoms. The human eye can only distinguish between objects at a set range. Even if satan provided a crazy awesome telescope, you still couldn't see past the Himalayas and into China because the Himalayas are higher than any mountains near Palestine.

    Perhaps satan led Jesus up on the mountain to show him because he has a flair for the dramatic?

    And then Satan loaded Google Earth and showed Jesus all the kingdoms, but Jesus was totally more interested in trying to locate his house and that place he rents the cheap dvds at

    I tried to sleep last night and just ended up tossing and turning for like 4 hours

    I was in this weird semi-sleep state which was just deep enough for me to have these weird-ass dreams but not enough for me to actually be rested

    so I basically feel like shit now and already missed one class

    How many classes do you have today, Ghost? I mean, if it's only one you might as well call it a bust, drink half a bottle of Nyquil, pop some melatonin and hide under a blanket for eight hours.

    Too bad. Especially since Red Bull reminds me of carbonated armpit.

    I always have weird-ass dreams, but that quasi-conscious state is the worst.

    Well, I use Red Bull as a catch-all for energy drink brands sometimes; I usually prefer Rockstar
