  1. If you ask me $16.95 is a bit steep for hummus and lentils. Plus don’t you think all these ‘artifacts’ will have that old people smell? I will probably just wait for the James Cameron movie. Mainly because his movie will include DNA evidence that it is Simone of Cyrene, who just happened to be black. Not that I want to be feeding into your new race fixation.

  2. you have been reading the books just over to my right for quite sometime now. are you a slow reader or something? or maybe its that you are reading 9 books at a time. do you ever get them confused: like what if you started thinking you were supposed to “build your ministry on” “hyper-calvinism: the battle for” “undermining confidence in” “worship” OR “Ministries of” “The Deliberate Church:” “Open Theism” ” by the book” OR “Ministries of their” “God is Too” “reformed” “and the undermining” “of mercy” “the english standard” “call of Jericho”

    and just as a side note, what mother would name her son Edmund P Clowney, seriously? did she hate her own flesh and blood?

    say it don’t spray it!

  3. I went and took a friend that had never been to see such a thing..
    It was very spiritually moving to see items used by those soo long ago. I did think it was abit over priced…but today what isn’t. and i was glad to have the oppertunity to view such “special” items…
