“Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.” -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782.

Yeah, I have a Tumblr account now.
I do post some different things there in a way that I can’t post here.
That blog also contains a small amount of hard and soft porn.
FORVO is a handy site to learn how to pronounce the pesky names you’ll find here.
This video catches an audio recording of real Angels singing. It happened when a seven people got together for choir practice. They started singing but then something strange begun to occur. Suddenly they heard thousands of super human voices singing along with the group.
At first, they thought there was just something wrong with the sound system but after checking everything their sound equipment was working just perfect. In awe at why there was thousands of voices singing along with them they then realized a super natural phenomenon was happening.
Guitars and trumpets that were not there were mysteriously being recorded in addition to all sorts of other instruments. There was even a solo sung by a male caught in the recording. The voices carried and sustained notes for a longer time than humanly possible.
AHEM YEAH! Who are the deluded, crazy ones?
A site on the Scottish island of Bute has been identified as a Viking gathering place known as a “thing” in Old Norse, used to make political decisions, promulgate laws and settle disputes.
The mysterious mount, known as Cnoc An Rath, has been known to archaeologists since at least the 1950s. However, its identity has been in question for several decades, with many suggesting it might have been a medieval or prehistoric farm site. According to The Herald Scotland, archaeologists now feel that this Viking parliamentary site was likely the seat of power for Ketill Flatnose, a powerful Viking ruler whose bloodline would go on to settle Iceland.
The key to the theory of the site being a Norse “thing” was a new study of the island’s place-names. The etymology of the names suggested many archaic designations for locations around the island could have indeed incorporated the word “thing”. Follow-up field investigations in the form of excavations have yielded preserved surface samples that have been radio-carbon dated back to when Norse raiders and settlers were active in and near the Argyll coast.
The analysis involved pieces of charcoal, according to archaeologist Paul Duffy, the head of Brandanii Archaeology and Heritage Consultancy. In an interview in the newspaper, Duffy recounted how the charcoal had been dated to the latter days of the kingdom of Dalriada – and the inception of Norse settlement on Bute. Eventually the date for the site was narrowed down to between the late seventh century and the late ninth century CE, which is within the window of certainty as to when Vikings were active in the region.
