The Last Word On Nothing Essential Vein Oil: EVO Similar to many other penis oils, Essential Vein Oil (EVO) was made for the sole purpose of penile exercising. For that reason, EVO is a more beneficial lubricant than the standard Vaseline, baby oil, and other commonly used lubricants. The downfall of EVO is that you have to make it yourself, making it a tad more expensive. But that hasn't stopped hundreds of men from making it their lubrication of choice. Created by a penile exerciser who uses the online alias Eroset, EVO combines several essential oils and herbs that are vasodilators—meaning they open your blood vessels and increase blood flow.

Lewis) May 18, 2001 Not into History Randall Stephens We've been having a lively discussion on this blog, thanks to Paul's post, and there have been other discussion raging in the blogosphere about David Barton and the uses and abuses of history. The selective use of anecdotes, prooftexts, and the decontextualized way of doing history are closely connected. And, thanks to David Barton and his recent headline grabbing, we have a case in point.

Zacharias' original text is in black and my responses are in red. Many times, as Christian theists, we find ourselves on the defensive against the critiques and questions of atheists.
