Survival Insticts?

I was trying to avoid posting about today's topic for some reason. Fear of being thought weird maybe. But since it is mostly for me, and only a handful of others actually read this... what do I have to lose? Besides, God already knows my heart and mind more fully than I can even imagine. So here I go... While thinking about what I could enter in my Blog today I thought about my preference for movies and even my favorite gaming hobbies. I seem to have an interest in apocalyptic, or at least severly damaged urban environments. I'm not sure when, maybe it was when the movie Terminator was released. I remember going to see that movie in the theaters at least a half dozen times. One time walking about six miles from my house with all my friends to see it. I like movies like Terminator, Terminator 3 (T-2 just was not that good IMO), Escape from New York, The Time Machine, the Matrix movies, the Left Behind series of movies, and The Postman (my personal favorite of those mentioned). And my favorite hobbies are Battletech and Necromunda. Both are tabletop miniature wargames that are placed in a far future where warfare and destruction are rampant. Necromunda especially. It is placed on a planet where for many many thousands of years industry has turned the enviroment into a toxic soup, and the cities are described as hives. Tens of miles across at their bases extending for as much as 10 miles into the air. Not really sure why I decided to blog about this. But there is something about the frivalities of life (at least what we experience in the U.S.) being stripped away. Where the really important things come to the fore, and life is more about survival then about gaining possessions. I don't know. Maybe. If any of you that read this is a "mind doctor" and you feel that God has given you some insight, please feel free to share it. I won't bite. :) And even if you are a 'layman' and feel like sharing... What's odd, well maybe, is that the book of Revelations is not my favorite book in the Bible. It's Job. My thought for the day: Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man;I will question you, and you make it known to me. Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know!Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk,or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang togetherand all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:1-7 esv)
