“Dead men cannot take effective action; their power of influence on others lasts only till the grave. Deeds and actions that energise others belong only to the living. Well, then, look at the facts in this case. The Saviour is working mightily among men, every day He is invisibly persuading numbers of people all over the world, both within and beyond the Greek-speaking world, to accept His faith and be obedient to His teaching. Can anyone, in face of this, still doubt that He has risen and lives, or rather that He is Himself the Life? Does a dead man prick the consciences of men...?” -St. Athanasius of Alexandria; On the Incarnation

I have started a collection of articles or biographies on the users of Minds. Basically there is a single blog, that will give a brief explanation of the collection's purpose and links to posts describing the different channels on Minds, with at least one article for each major channel. It is meant to help new users of Minds be able to easily attain a better knowledge of the Minds community. Articles will explain the origins of channels (when they joined and why), what they post, their acknowledged views, etc. The blog will be managed by myself, but individual articles may come from any author. Currently there are no linked acticles, but the blog can be found here https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1232457445725483008 Any advice and/or suggestions would be much appreciated. If you have an article or would like to be documented in this project, then please comment down below. Thank you for your time.

"Thus Bird insulted Fish on that occasion. Fish became angry, and, trusting in its heroic strength and solidness, swept across the bottom like a heavy rain cloud. It took up the quarrel. It did not take to heart the insults that Bird had cast at it. It could not bring itself to submit, but spoke unrestrainedly. Again Fish replied to Bird:" "Again Bird replied to Fish: "You utter fool! Dolt, muddle-headed Fish, you are out of ......! The mouths of those who circle (?) the quay never get enough to eat, and their hunger lasts all day. Swine, rascal, gorging yourself upon your own excrement, you freak!"". This is getting interesting, no? Some 4,000 year old Sumerian debate between Fish and Bird.
