The internet has changed the way we get news, communicate and find friends.  Now it is changing the way people find coupons.

Big companies like Groupon and LivingSocial are making a killing in the coupon business.  With billions of dollars spent on products using internet coupons, it looks like there is no end in sight.  These sites offer one deal a day at a discounted rate to its subscribers. Some people think that its crazy to limit consumers to only one deal a day, and Ryan Rydell, owner of, agrees.  Ryan asks:  “How would you like it if a newspaper only offered you one coupon per day?” is a new online source where consumers can search local businesses and find coupons that they want.  Ryan says: “People are always looking to save some money, so they usually spend a lot of time in the Sunday paper searching for a great deal.  Now, with, you can put down the scissors and go to one place to find all the great local deals that you need.  Not just one deal…a whole bunch of ‘em”

The internet has taken over a lot of factors in our lives.  In this case, it seems that it has taken the top spot for how people find coupons for products and services.  Instead of searching the paper or looking through those coupon packets we all hate getting in the mail, sites like offer a place where just a few clicks get you the deal you want.  No scissors, no paper cuts, no wasted trees.  Just a whole lot of great deals.  Businesses get to save in the process too.  With no printing costs, and more area saturation, saves businesses money, translating to better deals for the customers. hasn’t been around for very long, but already has dozens of cities across the nation with their own version of the site. Thats why Ryan is so excited about this new coupon service, because it takes its strength from its local roots.  Ryan, a Rockford native, along with his wife and 3 kids, has been trying to find the perfect way to get local consumers to use local services, and he thinks that is the perfect “mix” to get the job done.

With a compelling easy to use web site and a strong focus on helping local businesses reach local customers, looks like it will play a huge part in the online coupon craze.

Q & A

Below is a list of questions that I came across while reading at (a website designed to offer answers to the many questions that Christians face).   I felt it necessary to offer my answers.  So…here goes:

If you are an atheist, a materialist, a pantheist, or a naturalist, try to answer the following 11 questions:

  1. “If all of life is meaningless, and ultimately absurd , why bother to march straight forward, why stand in the queue as though life as a whole makes sense?” —Francis Schaeffer, The God Who Is There

    There is nothing about me that believes life to be “meaningless or absurd”, but if it were, then the motivation would be a simple one…happiness, fulfillment, joy, love, knowledge, art, etc…  The things that make us all get up in the morning.  The acceptance of a God isn’t the only thing that makes people move.
  2. If everyone completely passes out of existence when they die, what ultimate meaning has life? Even if a man’s life is important because of his influence on others or by his effect on the course of history, of what ultimate significance is that if there is no immortality and all other lives, events, and even history itself is ultimately meaningless?

    basically the same question as #1…so revert to the answer already given.
  3. Suppose the universe had never existed. Apart form God, what ultimate difference would that make? None…so what???

    If the universe never existed, then we wouldn’t be having this debate.  Can we move on to a meaningful question please?
  4. In a universe without God or immortality, how is mankind ultimately different from a swarm of mosquitoes or a barnyard of pigs?

    There is no debate on the difference between mankind and mosquitoes.  Am I really suppose to give you a lesson on the nature of man? This kind of question is ridiculous.
  5. What viable basis exists for justice or law if man is nothing but a sophisticated, programmed machine?

    To keep man accountable in his life for what he does.  Of course, no one ever stated that man is a “programmed machine”…then again, the argument could be made that if God exists as the bible states, that its in that belief system that man is programmed.
  6. Why does research, discovery, diplomacy, art, music, sacrifice, compassion, feelings of love, or affectionate and caring relationships mean anything if it all ultimately comes to naught anyway?

    Why buy a house if it can’t be taken to heaven?  Why wear clothes if your just gonna take them off for a shower?  Why go to work if you are just gonna spend away all the money you make? Get where I’m going here?  I hope so…if not then refer back to my answer to #1.
  7. Without absolute morals, what ultimate difference is there between Saddam Hussein and Billy Graham?

    Where exactly do we get the absence of “absolute morals”?  Clearly, the actions of these two men are different in acceptance and consequence.
  8. If there is no immortality, why shouldn’t all things be permitted?(Dostoyevsky)

    Because not all things are permissible.  Plus, eternity isn’t the only factor here…right now we live on earth, not in heaven.  I don’t find it hard to believe, and neither does almost every 1st grader in the world, that there are things that are good and things that are bad…whether or not you believe in a form of afterlife.  This life is more valuable because its the only one we have.  If there be an afterlife, such a thing makes this life less valuable and forgettable.
  9. If morality is only a relative social construct, on what basis could or should anyone ever move to interfere with cultures that practice apartheid, female circumcision, cannibalism, or ethnic cleansing?

    Because morality is much more than “relative” and “social”…its natural, humane, universal, and inerrant in every man as we evolve.  I assume that you are forgetting the following acts that were “culturally acceptable” in biblical times, not only condoned, but sometimes ordered by god:  Slavery, genocide, prostitution and murder.
  10. If there is no God, on what basis is there any meaning or hope for fairness, comfort, or better times?

    This question is absolutely STUPID.  Entirely nonsensical, and hence, i will not answer it.  Lets move on…
  11. Without a personal Creator-God, how are you anything other than the coincidental, purposeless miscarriage of nature, spinning round and round on a lonely planet in the blackness of space for just a little while before you and all memory of your futile, pointless, meaningless life finally blinks out forever in the endless darkness?

    I am more than all that because of who my parents made me, what my choices make me, what my love makes me, what my children make me, what my friends make me, what my wife makes me, what my art makes me, what my thoughts make me.  I am Man that loves and is loved.  With or without a Creator, I am ME.

I will never be more than a sum of my yesterdays.  Clearly, the website thinks that I am a miscarriage, meaningless blink of futile waste.  Seems about spot on with their religion.
