What’s the difference anyway?

Again on the ABC, this time on its coverage of the WA state election:
ABC host Kerry O’Brien:  Hannah Beazley standing for the ABC…
Deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop: You’ve done it again, Kerry.
O’Brien: Just wish those letters weren’t so similar.

Labor’s humiliation in WA could spell curtains for Gillard

Andrew BoltMARCH102013(5:05am)

A big swing against Labor in the WA state election devastates the party and adds to pressure on Julia Gillard:
With 56.7 per cent of the vote counted, the coalition had 58 per cent of the vote on a two party preferred basis, with Labor taking 42 per cent, accounting for a swing of 6.6 per cent to the government.
True, Premier Colin Barnett is a good performer with a good record and was never going to lose. But Defence Minister Stephen Smith, who holds one of Labor’s three remaining federal seats in Western Australia, is brutally frank:
We’ve had a tough time federally - you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work that out - and there’s no doubt we have been a drag on [Opposition Leader] Mark [McGowan] and there’s no doubt that we haven’t been helpful.
If he’s right, Labor’s three federal seats, held by Smith, Special Minister of State Gary Gray and Melissa Parke, could be slashed to one or none.
UPDATE
But the strongest response to the defeat came from [Alannah] MacTiernan, a former WA Labor infrastructure minister, who called on the federal party to dump Ms Gillard.
Asked directly if she believed the ALP must replace Ms Gillard as leader, Ms MacTiernan replied: “Absolutely, I’m sorry it is very clear”.
UPDATE

The biggest swing, though, was against the Greens.
UPDATE
Reader Colin:
The biggest worry for federal Labor in the WA State election is that they’ve lost the seat of Perth with a swing to the Liberals of 10%. This seat is a crucial part of Stephen Smiths federal seat, and together with swings of 7% in other areas of Smith’s electorate, he is in serious trouble.
UPDATE
Meanwhile a new Galaxy poll just adds to the pressure:
Asked who they’d vote for if a federal election were held today, 32 per cent of respondents opted for the Labor party, while 48 per cent chose the coalition…

The Pacific Marine Layer 
I went to shoot the PANSTARRS comet tonight and as soon as I got to the Grizzly Peak, I knew it wasn't going to happen. That wall of purple is a form of haze known as the marine layer and it's great for ruining sunsets, though as you can see it did no damage to tonight's. It did however obscure the close to the horizon comet. Tomorrow we're supposed to be under a nice high pressure system, which will introduce warmer weather and (I hope) less off shore misty foggy gunk. The comet will also be a bit higher, so that should help too.

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent.)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Is satan good ?

Student : No.

Professor: Where does satan come from ?

Student : From … GOD …

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

Student : Yes.

Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer.)

Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them ?

(Student had no answer.)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

Student : No , sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student : No, sir. There isn’t.

(The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class was in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class broke out into laughter. )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

P.S.

I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?

Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH. -

…the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…—Mk 10:45

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, did not come to be ministered to, but to minister. What do you need today? Jesus in His inexhaustible supply and divine fullness wants you to take from Him. 

Take from Him your miracle for your body. Take from Him wisdom for every decision. Draw on His peace to guard your heart and mind. 

Beloved, Christ is before you in all His glory, full of love and strength for you to draw from!
