In this episode, I talk about personal stuff like what I’m reading, what I’m gaming, and why I’m glad I have Sunday off and why I need to go to the bank today.
Restaurant Reviewed: Smitty’s Restaurant
Restaurant Type: Family-Style
Food Ordered: Breakfast Special (Sunrise Omlet with Shredded Hashbrowns and Toast), Bagel with Cream Cheese, Large Orange Juice, and Hot Chocolate
Price (including GST): $20.55
My Review: The service was fast for the type of restaurant (I’d estimate I got my food in about 5-10 minutes, as I didn’t have my cellphone or a watch on me today.), the food was worth the price, the restaurant was very clean, and the people who served me were very polite. I truly enjoyed today’s visit to this restaurant, and would recommend it to anyone who needs a bite to eat and wants some great food and is willing to wait a few minutes.
I’ll post just a quick note here, as I don’t have much time before I need to get ready and go to work today. I’ll just say that I believe that I can get Leet Link running as a marketplace in about a month or two, and that it will be using WooCommerce and a plugin/theme combo I found to power it. This will allow the sale of not just digital items, but physical items as well. Payments will be accepted via Paypal, BitPay, and CoinPayments at first, but I will be adding Payza and probably Skrill (formerly MoneyBookers) down the road. Payouts will be via Paypal or Skrill for merchants.
Got to run, so take care for now!
I have many reasons why I cannot and will not believe in evolution. I thought I should share these reasons here today with my readers, and then you can judge for yourself whether or not evolution is worth believing.
The very first reason that I cannot and will not believe in evolution is that it removes God from the whole picture. No God, and no true right and wrong. No true right and wrong, and no original sin (or any sin for that matter). No sin (original or not) and no need for a Saviour, because there’s no afterlife to go to because there is no heaven and hell without God. No need for a Saviour means Jesus’s death on the cross was meaningless, and He wasn’t who He said He was. It also means our lives have no greater purpose, because we have no reason to live a life full of the right choices for someone greater than us (other than the laws of our country).
The second reason is tied closely to the first one. I cannot and will not believe in evolution because it is a scientific (and false) hypothesis that attempts to remove God from the equation of life. It will always be a hypothesis, because you cannot observe it first hand (unlike with scientific facts) and cannot reproduce it in a lab. Amoebas are a one-celled organism, and scientists have never seen one evolve into a two-cell amoeba (technically it would not be an amoeba any more I believe), instead they always divide into two one-celled amoebas.
The final reason I have is all the scientific evidence out there that shows just how complex our bodies and world really are. Let’s take DNA for an example. There are just four nucleotides out there: guanine, adenine, thymine, and cytosine. When they are in the correct order, our bodies work just fine. When they are in the wrong order, disease happens, or the body doesn’t even live if the error is bad enough. We still don’t know how to read the DNA, and from what I have seen and read, it’s very complex. The very theory that somehow these four could come together (and they are pretty complex) at the same time in the same area and be encased before they were destroyed is quite laughable to me! The odds are highly against it, especially in the conditions evolutionists imagine the pre-life Earth was in. This is just one area where evolution places all it’s eggs in the basket of risk, and they say that if you add enough time, it’s possible. Like I said, the mere thought of this makes me want to laugh!
I hope this article gave you something to think about, and I hope you stay safe until the next time I post.
I would like to wish all of my readers and members a Happy Thanksgiving today. May you enjoy your time with your families, and remember all the blessings you’ve received this year. I wrote an article for Leet News Network yesterday about what I’m thankful for this year, and I encourage you all to read it. (By the way, I’m still looking for writers, editors, and another administrator for that online newspaper – if you are interested, join that site, and then follow the links in the menu to apply.)
I’ve taken a look at what it takes to create a new charity, and from what I’ve read so far, I cannot do it by myself for The Christian Network. I’d need at least two others to help me (preferably more), as you need at least three directors to be able to apply for charitable status here in Canada (and not just provincially as I want to be able to issue receipts to all Canadians who donate, plus some societies [provincial term] aren’t charitable under the sections that apply of the Income Tax Act) with the Canadian Revenue Agency under the law. I want it to become a charity because it would be easier (and more transparent) to control the site’s finances, and I could put donation buttons on the site where the donor would see that the one accepting the cash was the charity itself, and not myself or Leet Link Enterprises Inc.
I haven’t done any writing or game playing in a while, mostly due to the fact that I enjoy reading fan fiction a lot, and the fact that I have to work lots of hours lately because of the short staffing issue at work. I don’t mind all the hours, as I am getting excellent pay checks, although I’m also not getting any work done on my websites (and forgetting to post here on occasion) is very frustrating to me. On the upside, my net worth is slowly moving towards positive, and that makes me very happy.
I should get going, as I need to take a shower and get dressed before my dad picks me up to go out to my parents place for Thanksgiving, so take care everyone and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
So far in my life, I would have to say things are going pretty smooth. I’m working lots of hours at Superstore because we are short staffed in my department (and in most departments), but I’m earning a decent amount of cash so I can’t complain too much – though I’d like to be able to go to church more often than only whenever I book off a Sunday. I could easily work 5-10 (or 4-9) PM on Sunday so I could go to church in the morning, but I’m always scheduled for a morning shift that day. It just makes me more determined to get Leet Link Enterprises Inc. to be making enough money to be able to pay me a salary every month.
Speaking of Leet Link, it’s website is my current priority for directing my spending online towards (other than debt and bill payments), specifically turning it into a full-blown digital marketplace. I should be able to afford one or two more plugins for Easy Digital Downloads this Thursday which will take it another couple of steps towards that completion. I’m hoping with the rate of cash I’m earning from Superstore that I can complete that site by the end of the year or early next year.
Also on Thursday, I’ll be working on finishing setting up WooCommerce and switching the downloads to it from the current setup. All of them will remain free, but you will need a membership there to download them. I’ve also got a couple of ideas for songs while I will be working on, as I want to work on my first album for sale. When I’m closer to releasing it, I’ll be sure to tell you more about it.
That’s all for now, I need to get going so I can finish my breakfast and get ready for my 12:30 – 9:30 PM shift at Superstore today, so take care!
