• (1:23) AL CNN full.  Adam Lambert interviewed by a CNN reporter 11/22/09 after his AMA performance.
(:19) AL CNN 1.  "Part of what I love about being a live performer is that sometimes you just are in the moment and sometimes things just happen.  Adrenaline is a crazy, crazy, crazy feeling. Some of the things I love most about performing is when you're up there and all of the sudden you just have these feelings, this rush that comes over you. And things happen."
(:27) AL CNN 2. "I was just really in the moment, to be honest with you.  As an afterthought, I do feel as though there is a bit of a double standard in the entertainment community, on television, on radio. I feel like women performers have been pushing the envelope, sexually, for the past 20 years. And all of the sudden a male does it and everybody goes 'Oh, we can't show that on TV.'  To me, that's a form of discrimination and a double standard. And that's too bad."
(:03) AL CNN 3. "To me, that's a form of discrimination and a double standard."
428-437Calls.  Your reaction to Adam Lambert and all that he stands for?  Don't be surprised when the world acts like the world.  The early church flourished in pagan Rome, with temple prostitution, idolatry, and rampant sexual immorality.  We need to do the same by outliving and out loving the world – since we have been shown the greatest love of all.

The Problem of the Cambrian Explosion  Essentially, 520 mya 5 phyla exploded into 70 different phyla in "only" 5 million years – far too little time for evolution to occur – and with only 30 extant phyla today, that means that 40 phyla went extinct, but the problem is, there's no fossil record of this!  Exactly contrary to what evolution would predict.
