Jordan and Luci attempt to combat the apathy of Ecclesiastes’ author.
- An etymology of the name Ecclesiastes
- The song “Turn! Turn! Turn!” was written by Pete Seeger, and recorded twice (by the Limeliters and then by Seeger under the title “To Everything There Is a Season”) before the recording by The Byrds became an international hit in 1965. Except for the very last line and the recurring titular phrase, Seeger took the lyrics from Ecclesiastes 3:1–8. As such, the claim on the song’s wikipedia entry that “Turn! Turn! Turn!” has the oldest lyrics of any number one pop hit seems plausible.
- The Reign of Christ
- Sarah Condon’s book “Churchy: The Real Life Adventures of a Wife, Mom and Priest”
- Total depravity, calvinism, and Reinhold Niebuhr’s “Moral Man and Immoral Society”
- Studies have indeed found that ignorance is bliss, at least in the context of complex social issues with a large potential impact (like climate change). Findings indicate the more worried people are about something, the more resistant they are to learning more about it.
- And on the flip side, an abstract for a paper that found bliss is ignorance – that other people perceive very happy people as ignorant.
- This is fine (and on Know Your Meme)
