Morgendämmerung, oder, Wie man mit dem Hammer theologirt.
Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id es semper esse puerum.
Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.
Homo sum humani nihil a me alienum puto.
Semper idem sed non eodem modo.


Verbum domini manet in aeternum. The word of the Lord endures forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25, quoting Isaiah 40:6,8. Motto of the Lutheran Reformation.

Fayth onely justifieth before God. Robert Barnes, DD The Supplication, fourth essay. London: Daye, 1572.

Lord if Thou straightly mark our iniquity, who is able to abide Thy judgement? Wherefore I trust in no work that I ever did, but only in the death of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt, but through Him to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Robert Barnes, DD, before he was burnt alive for "heresy", 30 July 1540.

What is Luther? The doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for anyone. Martin Luther, Dr. theol. (1522)

Cars Update

TIME recently carried an article titled "The Dozen Most Important Cars of All Time".

I'm not sure whether it's a sign of making good choices in cars, or just getting older, but I have or have had three of them, 25%. Probably just getting older -- one was a hand-me-down my dad bought.

They are: the 1955 Chevrolet; the Toyota Corolla; the Plymouth/Chrysler Voyager.

The first was the hand-me-down. The second, still in production, was for me a 1977 Deluxe model I drove for 17 years and 177K miles. The third, also still in production, is for me a 1992 LE "shortie", the short wheel base which I much prefer over the more popular long wheel base, and note the present tense, it's in the driveway right now getting snowed on after another day's service!

Here's the link:,28757,1701729,00.html

BTW, there's also a list of The 50 Worst Cars Of All Time on the page too.
