291 easter



Thepicturethatwouldneverend
I am finally finished with this image.
It started out with the carpets in a building that i visit at work. The shapes suggested playful critters, and the idea seemed an easy one to render.
Yea.Right.
So I drew and drew, and came up with a plan. I made my first model,and thought that would be what I needed, but I need to see what a couple of minor changes would look like. I came close to re creating the thing in the revision stage.
But, on the coldest Easter in recent memory, I finished it.
Now, all I need is a new project...

This feature closes with an image of a pine tree in front of an abandoned house. This is a message to a blogger who referred to me today as a "rank unbeliever".

Why would you deny that you are a rank unbeliever, given the definition of "believer" as "one who knows God by the work of Jesus Christ"? I can't imagine why you'd object to such a thing, Chamblee.

Of course, when anyone asks you questions about this matter, you simply divert the questions with jokes or sarcasm. But here's you chance: demonstrate that you are a believer, or that you have a reasonable objection to being called a "rank unbeliever" by modeling any kind of non-idiosyncratic belief.

Welcome to my blog. I don't get many visitors, and the ones who do stop in are appreciated.
As for your comment...
I don't feel that semantic mudwrestling is productive. If a believer is one who knows G-d through Jesus, then obviously that is not me. I have my ideas about G-d, which I may or may not get to here. My thoughts about Jesus are incidental to the ideas about G-d.

This is where you get weird again. Maybe you should wait until you finish your coffee before you write stuff like this.
I am going to be 53 in a few weeks. For you to know every question ever posed to me about religion, from the limited exposure you have had to me, would be a miracle of cyber intuition.
"modeling any kind of non-idiosyncratic belief."
Would this modeling be done on a catwalk, as the religio-fashion critics ooh and ahh? Again, the mind boggles.
Or maybe this will be the setting for my three round bout with Dan Kimball. As I said earlier, If he wishes to correspond with me, I will reply, but I do not wish to do this for your tawdry entertainment.
I also detect a “mean” tone in your comments. Maybe this is just how Jesus Worshippers talk, I don’t know. I do know that it does not create good will for Jesus…and that you don’t seem to think this is important. I disagree. How you relate to your fellow humans is important, much more important that doctrine. I Believe Jesus said something to this effect…that the only two rules that mattered were to love G-d with all your heart, and treat your neighbor, as you would like to be treated.
Of course, you are a Jesus Worshipper, and maybe that is how you like to be treated. Just be aware that not everyone shares this opinion, and if you are going to reach other people, you need to consider how they feel.

In a previous comment, you asked if my views on the ten suggestions were open to discussion. I am not in the final interpretation business. I just try to follow the dern things, and wish others would do the same...including "believers".
