wedding pics

Hey guys,

Esther and I are back from our honeymoon, a trip to the South Island of New Zealand, so here are some photos of the wedding:


  1. You scrub up well. Once again congratulations.

  2. I was just about to say how dapper you were looking, Dan! The white tie works a treat; I'll have to remember that one.
    Esther looks beautiful and it seems like it was a gorgeous day for it.

    Congratulations and cheers, to a long and blessed marriage!



  3. The white tie was made out of my wife's dress fabric :)
    What an amazing wife I have...she made her dress and all her brides maid's dresses aswell.

  4. Same fabric, now that's an interesting idea.

  5. How have you guys been the past several weeks or so?

  6. Oh just fine. Persecuting Ray by disagreeing with him on his blog, eating babies, you know, the usual.

  7. LOL, I am glad you are well.
    Cool classic phrase " disagreeing", very funny!

    Eating babies?...?

  8. You aren't familiar with the old cliché that Atheists eat babies?

    Many Christians, particularly of the ilk that hang out at The Swamp (Ray's Blog) consider disagreement as persecution, which in turn validates the bible saying that they will be persecuted.

  9. You aren't familiar with the old cliché that Atheists eat babies?

    Um no not really. I am assuming it is part of the argument that atheists cannot have any permanent morals?

    As Lewis rounds up a similar argument:

    "If a good God made the world why has it gone wrong? And for many years I simply refused to listen to the Christian answers to this question, because I kept on feeling 'whatever you say, and however clever your arguments are, isn't it much simpler and easier to say that the world was not made by any intelligent power? Aren't all your arguments simply a complicated attempt to avoid the obvious?' But then that threw me back into another difficulty.

    My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust? If the whole show was bad and senseless from A to Z, so to speak, why did I, who was supposed to be part of the show, find myself in such violent reaction against it? A man feels wet when he falls into water, because man is not a water animal: a fish would not feel wet. Of course I could have given up my idea of justice by saying it was nothing but a private idea of my own. But if I did that, then my argument against God collapsed too--for the argument depended on saying that the world was really unjust, not simply that it did not happen to please my fancies. Thus in the very act of trying to prove that God did not exist--in other words, that the whole of reality was senseless -I found I was forced to assume that one part of reality--namely my idea of justice--was full of sense."

  10. It's just a very standard old joke.

    Some examples

    Typical atheist; turning a thread about a dude's marriage into a baby-eating discussion!
