The internet is evil

I'm working on some pictures that are taking longer than I'd hoped. Time is a bit tight.

Why, therefore do I find that a perfectly legitimate quick search for ancient rakes has lead to me reading articles about evil medical experiments?

Or that a perfectly legitimate quick search to see if there's any info on what the Hebrew article of clothing called 'simlah' was like has lead to me reading a set of Seventh Day Adventist presentations on modest clothing?

Grrrrrrrrrr >:-(

Only one God?

It's very irritating, when you're reading historical stuff, and they 'reveal' that early Israelite religion was polytheistic, or that they worshipped a goddess. The implication is that the Bible gives an innaccurate view.

But the fact that the Israelites worshipped many gods is not news. The Bible makes this very very clear.

What the Bible says is that they should only worship one God. Not that they did. God didn't make laws to ban people from doing things they wouldn't have thought of doing anyway.

That says '1 GOD', not 'I GOD', as several confused people read it :-)

Sort algorithms

Computers need new sort algorithms.
Specifically:
  • Dates as normal humans write them (year at end) - preferably with months written in words.
  • Seasons - spring, summer, autumn, winter would sort in that order.
  • Books of the Bible. Acts should not come before Genesis.
Any other ideas?

Double vision

I had a dream in which there were people whose eyes looked a bit like this.

Word of mouth

But sometimes it is nice to draw things like this:
