The butterfly effect: Was Nazism after all caused by a man oversleeping one morning in the 16th century?
This is from the introduction of "Sliding doors" starting with a "butterfly effect"! In this clip two parallal stories starts. In the movie you see how the slighest event creates infinite of chain-reactions. Only the mom preventing her girl from blocking the maincharacter for å slight second changes the whole lifes to a couple of peoples!
The butterfly effect refers to the idea that a butterfly's flapping of wings creates tiny changes in the atmosphere. And this slight difference can cause infinite of chain-reactions that in the end can cause a tornado on the other side of the earth! Its quite crazy when you think of it!
In the movie the event in the start cause the maincharacter to e.g. meet someone she fells in love with. And if they marry and get childrens they start a whole new lineage. And in a few hundreds of year it exists a whole bunch of people's that would not exist if the mom had not preventet her girl to block a person for a second.
You can change the history of the world today! :) After all, maybe Nazism never had happend if a man in England had not overslept a morning in the 16th century?
Have you experienced the butterfly effect? Please tell about it belove!

This is one of the best flashmob's ever! Sometimes done to promote a cause. So what are you doing when you see a little thing that should be removed, replaced, repaired or something when its not your problem? Are you only going away and behave as you did'nt see it? This lady is becoming a hero for just a little good deed she did even when she didnt know anybody was watching.
I heard a good quote one time I dont remember, but someting like: its the person you are when nobody sees you really are.
Jesus Christ speaks about it in Matt 6:1-4. Its easy to do good deeds when people are watching you so they can give you honour and think you are a really good person. Maybe some people are motivated to give money in public to charity, only for promoting themself's a good persons that all people should like?, and because they want to be popular?
But with the right motifs, I dont think it need to be a bad think to practice righteousness before people. I think e.g. some celebrities sponsor charity public because they really care about the poor, and want to be good rolemodels for their fan's. And inspire other people's to be good. I think it's all about what drives you to do good, if you do so. Is it only to promote youself as good person, or because you care?

This is what is said to be America's most hated family. You may sense the intense abomination in America against them on the video. They've met a counterdemonstration and the Police has to bring them to safety before someone is hurt.(the first ammandment rigths gives good defense regardless if you deserve it or not)
UPDATE: America is now in a fury after they published an annoucement where they thank God for the dead in Joplin, and pray for more destruction. Just when you thought they could'nt sink any deeper...
If you wonder who the heck this Phelps-family think they are, check out the BBC-documentary. In short terms they're extreme fire and brimstone-christian secterics who spread their message about "God hates fags/america/sinners/you etc. In this documentary they great journalist Louis Theroux has visited them over a time to find about more who they really are, interesting and extremely nasty and provoking.
You may have met religious/christian fanatics too(just a little less extreme)? Or are you just extremely annoyed by fanatics?

As a christian I think Westboro Baptist Church are totally wrong. Why?, I think Louis have some good points in this discussion! For a christian biblebased view, read this.
Do you think WBC is an abomination before God?

PS: Not for fainthearted. This is the most shocking and sad I've ever seen on a TV-show, I was even quite nervous myself while watching it. Its a heartbreaking episode since "the truth is often not pretty" and reveals who you really are. It can be inconvienent for your nearest that may trusted you, but honesty last longest.
The episode raises some interesting questions. Is it a good thing to reveal all truth?, or is something better to leave undisclosed? The confident host does a great job here, and towards the end he even try to appear as therapist too, because he feels so sorry for the family.
After have done all this bad things and confessed it, I think Lauren have a good base to start a better life. If she not had been pressed to confess, she probably would continuoe to do the wrong things until anybody exposed her, or until fatal consequences. Maybe this can save herself, her marriage and relations before its too late? Sometimes things have to be destroyed so something better can be rebuilt. I think its a good thing to confess bad stuff, it gives you the pressure to do something about it! And you neigther have to live in constant fear of being exposed.
But what about you? Would you dare to participate in "The Moment of Truth"?, or do you have to many shells in the closet?(norwegian saying). Do you think you're a good person? Thats the critical question Lauren fails. She may know it in her heart that she is a sinner, but in her mind she maybe wont realize it. We often like to think that we are so much better than we really are!
The good thing is that if Christianity is true, than we all can get absolusion for our sins, and a new start to do good. Remember that God punished himself for our transgressions, as Isaiah prophecied about Jesus Christ a.k.a. God!:
"Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all. "

YWAM asks today on Womens day on twitter "what women inspire you?"
Im inspired by Willow Smith(Will Smith's daugther) and her message in this song!, as well as the catchy tune, cool video(norwegian director; Ray Kay) and dance. It starts with conform surroundings until Willow dares to be herself and puts colors to the surroundings, and inspires the others to do the same!
"Whip My Hair' means don't be afraid to be yourself, and don't let anybody tell you that that's wrong. Because the best thing is you."
"For you formed my inward parts;What if we're not animals only caused by evolution from nothing, but unique human beings created by God with unique personalitys, gifts and skills that He wants you to live out? Be yourself, instead of trying to be someone else. Be yourself instead of only trying to be normal(in the way as the start of video)! Neigther allow the Jante Law to let you down, or stop yourself from following your desires(except if its bad) because you are afraid of what others will think.
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well."
PS: just a little commentary to the Willow-quote, sometimes people may tell you something is wrong because it IS wrong, but I think Willow means when people tell you its wrong only because they dont like your style, personality, faith, desires, dreams etc, or think they know better than you when they dont.
btw: Watch also Willow's latest song released a few days ago, its also a cool song!
