Hi

So for a couple weeks I've been looking for a place where I might potentially find intelligent conversations with intelligent people. I landed here... My timing might be a little off, though. I'm a student (architecture) and finals are coming up. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have somewhat of a presence on here and this won't be my one and only post...

C'mon in! I would say the water's fine, but I'm dry as a bone.


Bad dispensational jokes aside... tell us a little about yourself? Where do you stand? Dispensationalist? Calvinist? Preterist? Hollow-earther? Flying Spaghetti Monster? Jedi?

What are your views on the eschatological implications of hyper-dispensational theonomy in light of the Petrine-Pauline dichotomy?

Did you vote for a perverted, anti-free-speech, pro-gay, socialist baby killer for president?

And what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Haha! Well after Google-ing "dispensationalism," I'm not sure that fully embodies my stance on theology. I believe I fit more into the Jedi category.

But it sounds like you might be fascinated with the end times... I too suppose the eschatological implications of hyper-dispensational theonomy in light of the Petrine-Pauline dichotomy to be intriguing. Although I'm not particularly educated in this field... Maybe you could enlighten me on your findings? Opinions?

I voted for the old dude.

And nothing beats a bowl of vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup, stirred to the consistency of a milk shake. I think I'll have some.

Well, you know what they say, if at first you don't succeed, why not stay here awhile? :think: Something like that...

My timing might be a little off, though.
Trust me, being a little off in any particular not only isn't a bar to major success here, it can actually work to your advantage.

I'm a student (architecture) and finals are coming up. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have somewhat of a presence on here and this won't be my one and only post...

Ah, I have a niece who is back at Virginia to finish up her master's work in your field. Good luck. :thumb: She loves it.

Oh, almost forgot--welcome. :e4e:

You came here without knowing what dispensationalism is? Ooo, you'll be a fun one. :D

Ohhhh, so you did vote for the perverted, anti-free-speech, pro-gay, socialist baby killer. :mmph:

Sorry I have to take issue with you on this, Vanilla ice cream should be enjoyed pure and unadultereated.

Corruption of vanilla ice cream is a serious matter.

You know, I get that question a lot and rarely know how to answer it... Ultimately I just want to create good architecture. So many buildings now are just cookie-cutter, pre-fab structures with no meaning. No order. I'm just sick of banks with red brick and Greek temple fronts. I'm sick of churches that are large boxes with basketball goals at each end. I'm sick of suburbia, with its rows of identical houses and .00001 acre lawns. I'm most interested in designing public buildings, but I won't be picky. After school I plan on joining a firm, preferably in a large city. But we'll see how the economy is doing... Might be better for me to just go back to school...


I see you've met Graphite.

Yep.

BLASPHEMY!

That's cool. I live in a pretty nice place, but it does bear a kind of similarity to everything else around ...

Have you seen the Matrix sequels?

You would think an architect could have designed a better title for his "I'm new" thread. ;)

Welcome to "da big show".

Yes, but only once and it's been a while...

I'm a minimalist! There's no sense in carving wreaths into a pediment when a triangle is already a pure and beautiful form, right!? ;)

Thanks for all the welcomes!

Howdy! I'm also new. Though I think I might have posted on this forum a long time ago, before the site redesign.
