Famous Jasons

I was trying to think of a famous "Jason" and the best one I could think of ended in "and the Argonauts."

What the hell is wrong with my name? We've got a famous fictional serial killer and a guy who tried to steal some golden wool or something. And that was, like, a billion years ago.

I'm a little worried that I'm going to have to carry the whole "Jason" tribe with my burgeoning blogging fame, which may be the saddest thing I've ever written.

You know what I should do...

I should win me one of those Nobel Prize things.

Either Peace or Physics, I can't decide.

Can you win the Nobel Peace prize in blogging? What did the Dalai Lama win it for, again?

Comments:
What if your audience grew and grew until eventually the whole world (pretty much) was reading your blog, and then one day you posted something that was perfect love, like you'd just bought the world a Coke or something, and everyone went "awww..." and beat their swords into plowshares right there on the spot and there was world peace forever?

That'd have to be worth something.
 
Hey - at least your most famous namesake had a really cool swordfight with a bunch of skeletons at the top of a jagged mountain. Wish I could say that.
There are a couple of good Toms - Jefferson and Edison come to mind - but the one that gets the most press is the one who didn't buy the whole "Jesus/resurrection" thing, giving us all a pretty crappy nickname.

Hmmmm...I haven't seen Freddy vs. Jason, so I'll just have to take your word for it.

Honestly - and I know my fair share of theology (especially for a strick non-believer) - I have no idea who you are talking about. I'll probably figure it out about 5 minutes after posting this.

(btw, most famous tom? Tom Jones, hands down)
 
Got it.

Text: John 20:24-25

24 Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.”


"Doubting Thomas"
 
Doubting Thomas?
 
I got it in just under the wire. I had no idea that "doubting thomas" was a biblical thing. Thanks Google!
 
Ha, you just beat me.

>>and put my hand into his side

Yuck. That's not a test I'd be anxious to perform.

I'm not surprised he wasn't with the disciples. I bet that guy got ditched rather a lot.
 
Dude. Sorry about the "doubting Thomas" thing. I guess 8 years of Catholic school (and mass every day) will mess a guy up.

(And, no, the skeletons thing was Jason and the Argonauts - have you seen that old movie?)

I'm guessing I probably should have just not posted the original comment here. I seem to have just confused EVERYONE now.

Well, yes, it will mess you up, but that's the topic of another post. But no worries, I got the chance to enter "Thomas Jesus Resurrection" into Google, something which I really get to do.

Yeah, I got that. I was just being wacky (I'm just a wacky guy).

This site never shies away from controversy. You reference all the myths you want, don't let a little obfuscation stop you.
 
Are you calling the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ a myth?
You'd better just watch out for the whole Wrath of God thing. He'll mess you up.

(Have you seen the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?)
 
I've been touched by his noodly appendage. I'd post about it at my site but then Jason would just pop over and tell me FSM was like so last week or something.
 
Yeah, Jason can be such a bitch.
 
You said it, Jason is a total...wait.

The C of the FSM is one of my favorite anti-Intelligent design things. The argument they use is one of the ones I find most useful (although I usually go the invisible-gnome route).

As far as the whole Jesus/myth thing goes, I took a class called "What is Myth" and so I should be able the answer your question, but I stopped going after mid-terms so I never got to find out what myth actually is.

So, in a word, maybe.
