Many posts ago, I quoted a colleague who commented that that the fact we share so much of our DNA with chimps (and, for that matter, sea cucumbers) is only significant if we think of DNA as non-sequential. If, on the other hand, we think of it in the way we think of letters that form words, it's less surprising that a minimal difference in the order of the same letters (i.e. with a 100% match) can have a pretty substantial effect on meaning. It's the old god/dog trick.

I've just been reminded of this in a very personal way. I put this blog on Facebook (I know, I know) and couldn't understand why I kept getting a very different blog whenever I clicked on the (admittedly also different) image.
This is what I got each time. Don't worry, you don't have to read it all. Here's a sample.

The Bible gives us over 50 descriptions about the people at the time of the end. These fit the people of today perfectly, but did not fit the people of fifty years ago. Here are some:


Some would depart from the faith and go into devil worship-1 Tim 4:1. This is perfect.

B. People would mock about the last days and not believe-2 Pe 3:3; Jude 18.


People would become lovers of themselves-2 Tim 3:1,2. Remember the TV commercials—"I do it for me"?


People would be disobeying their parents-2 Tim 3:1,2.

E. People would be grateful for nothing-2 Tim 3:1,2.

F. Homosexuality would increase-Lk 17:28,30; ref Gen 19:5; Ro 1:24,26,27.


People would be without self-control in sex-2 Tim 3:1,2,6; Rev 9:21, Lk 17:28,30; Jude 7. Is this not the great sex generation?


People would love pleasures more than God-2 Tim 3:1,2,4. This is true. Shall we go on a picnic, watch football, or sleep. Church?—we can go another time. Our American motto "In God we trust" has become a joke. Remember, these were all predicted centuries ago as part of the signs that we are at the time of the end.


People would be taking drugs-Rev 9:21. The Greek word for sorceries, in Rev 9:21, means pharmaceuticals or drugs. God’s Word is 100% right on every one. That’s 6 out of 6. How could you have any doubts at this point?
Note: Fifty years ago, many people seldom locked their doors at night. There was little or no profanity on television, radio, or in the movies. One of the biggest problems in public school was gum chewing. Those days are long gone.
It took me quite a while to spot the problem. Or should that be psot?

How distrubing!

I tried this with other blogspot blogs I follow, all with the same result. I feel tainted now, and need to run a Norton to clean up.

I had no idea! I thought I'd been singled out for being profane... I wonder if anything can be done.
