Noah, The Biblical Story, and Stuff Christians Fight About

Standard

panic, preacher. panic!

I don’t usually blog about controversial topics, but I’ve seen so much about this and I have some thoughts, so I figured I would get them out. I think many (not all) of the issues some of my fellow Christians have about the new Noah film are much more telling about a problematic understanding of scripture within the modern day Church than about some evil, maniacal filmmaker twirling his mustache and trying to dismantle Christianity as we know it. Russell Crowe as Noah

How to Play The Key of C on the Keyboard

Standard

I find C Major Scale the easiest scale to remember out of
the lot! This is because the C major scale doesn’t have
any sharps or flats in the key signature. What does this

Above you will see myself playing C Major Scale using
only my right hand and using one octave (7 notes).
Thumb – C
2nd Finger – D
3rd Finger – E
Thumb – F
2nd Finger – G
3rd Finger – A
4th Finger – B
5th Finger – C
As you can see above, I had to use my thumb twice to
make enough room for my fingers to get to the 7th note.
The easiest way is to slide your thumb under your third
finger to touch the note F.
