I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

Your pal, Jess

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

kwoat A shuns eye N-joy

Mee gud spelr, know?

My blog would probably get a lot more hits if I wrote it entirely in misspell.

First things first, but not necessarily in that order. -- The Doctor, in John Flanagan and Andrew McCulloch's 'Meglos'

The story so far: In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made alot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move. -- Douglas Adams

Try to learn something about everything and everything about something. -- T.H. Huxley

Nobody can be exactly like me. Sometimes even I have trouble doing it. -- Tallulah Bankhead

Two paradoxes are better than one; they may even suggest a solution. -- Edward Teller

The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of aprofound truth may well be another profound truth. -- Niels Bohr

We all live to a formula. Maybe the secret lies in keeping that formula secret. -- Peter Greenaway

It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God -- but to create him. -- Arthur C. Clarke

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies inthe final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who arecold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It isspending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes ofits children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under theclouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron. -- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The more I have studied him, the more Newton has receded from me. It has beenmy privilege at various times to know a number of brilliant men, men whom Iacknowledge without hesitation to be my intellectual superiors. I have never,however, met one against whom I was unwilling to measure myself, so that itseemed reasonable to say that I was half as able as the person in question, ora third or a fourth, but in every case a finite fraction. The end result of mystudy of Newton has served to convince me that with him there is no measure. Hehas become for me wholly other, one of the tiny handful of supreme geniuses whohave shaped the categories of the human intellect, a man not finally reducibleto the criteria by which we comprehend our fellow beings. -- Richard Westfall, 'Never at Rest. A Biography of Isaac Newton'

(God doesn't have to be a complex idea. It could be a simple concept for simple people about a simple reality, and have nothing to do with genius)

Everything of importance has been said before by somebody who did not discover it. -- Alfred North Whitehead

The idea of an incarnation of God is absurd: why should the human race thinkitself so superior to bees, ants, and elephants as to be put in this unique relation to its maker?... Christians are like a council of frogs in a marsh ora synod of worms on a dung-hill croaking and squeaking "for our sakes was the world created." -- Julian the Apostate

(maybe the snurflettes of galacticon x or whatever think we humans are as puny and squeaky and inferior as worms (fish food!), if they exist at all. Maybe Douglas Adams didn't write fiction...)
