TERRA NOVA (has spoilers after first sentence and link)

So Just finished watching the pilot episodes of TERRA NOVA (click link for hulu)
I really enjoyed it! Now I feel like alot of people are going to say, jurassic park with future tech...
All I'm going to say is, no, and also a big SO??
Anyway...
At first, while watching, I was getting an unsettled feeling about the whole time paradox thing, then there was a scene were they explained it that they went back in time to an alternate past.
Fun story, strange plot line (hopefully that doesn't get it cancelled, I love that stuff).
But I have to say my favourite surprise was steven lang! he's playing almost the exact same character as he did in Avatar! Personally I liked his character in the first part of the movie avatar. And Terra Nova has him set up the same way, military protector, I think the set up will make him stay "good" because their are no native people's to be terrorized and thus sympathized for... unless you really have a heart for dinosaurs...
Either way nice surprise to see him...
Good show start!

Truth, yeah there is truth...

So I was reading in John 18 37-38
Pilate says, you are a king... Jesus says, "You are right in saying I am a King. In fact for this reason I was born and for this I came into the world to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me." "What is truth?" is pilots first response.
It struck me that relativism was around back then, and really it seems that a distaste for truth or what truth is, is where we don't mind not believing someone. Making it easier for God's truth to be disbelieved, because we don't believe in truth, because that's what education/people say, don't believe in truth unless you yourself can prove it, and even then be skeptical...
Thus we float around and live for what we like and what suits "us" not live for what God likes and what suits God...
And the skeptic would say, 'how do we know what suits God or what he likes...' yeah okay, the Bible peoplethe bible... If God planned all of history, then he also planned the bible to be how he wanted it to be in this age too. I roman one day didn't change the entire outcome of truth because he canonized the bible one way... Is God in control? Yes. Okay Truth...
I think I started ranting... sorry. It's just exciting to see that even when Jesus was walking people were sinful people that didn't like truth. It means that I haven't gone through anything that a disciple hasn't gone through... I just get the shiny phone...
