I Ain't No Monkey's Uncle: A Bloggers Discussion on Evolution

"Recently, biologists have suggested that females could benefit from mating with many men - it would increase the genetic diversity of their children, and, if a high quality man would not stay with them forever, they might at least get his excellent genes for their child."
Huh? This is about the most mind boggling comment I've ever heard. Oh, my hell ('scuse the language... but really).
Who wants to bet a man came up with that idea?
Let's discuss. I know a lot of people make the argument that science disproves God, but I've always been of the mind that true science would (and does) lead us to God. Examples of my theory.
How long did it take the world to be created? No one really knows but the theory is that one day in God's time is a thousand years on Earth. Okay, so God created animals how many days before he created man? Could not dinosaurs have lived during this most tumultuous of periods (I really don't know, I'm just theorizing).
Or what about evolution? I don't think that evolution, in general, is so off. I think they are pretty accurate when they say that we adapt to our environment, that we grow and change and that we have instinctual behaviors. Any mother whose saved her child from a dangerous situation knows very well that she's not that different from a mother bear. But
I do not believe that I came from an ape.
And what about the last days, and the destruction spoken of?
Lets just think about this for a moment, you've got a man who has a vision and then writes it down. He lives in a time where there are no cars, and no planes. He lives when the field of science was still blossoming into what we have today and he describes things as he knows them. Where does it say that the sun (or is it moon) will be blood red?
Have you ever seen the sun shine through the haze of a forest fire?
Or during an eclipse?
No, I don't think that Science disproves God. Nor do I think that we are animals whose sole purpose on this Earth is to breed the next generation and then die. There is so much more to it than that, and it's startling to hear people, scientists! Say otherwise.
What do you think?

Whoever wrote that quote is an idiot. Sleeping around does not produce better people. I'm at a loss for words beyond that.

I wonder how my husband would react to this suggestion? Mmm...

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
