PAX TV Show: "How To Prepare Your Family For Y2k"greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
While surfing this board, I heardan ad for the show coming up on PAX television. For those who want to watch it, I believe that they said it would be on Monday night.

Hey, thanks for the mention of that show. I just watched a PAX presentation tonight about The Bible Code. I thought they did a really good job on that subject. So if they handle the preparation show with the same level of concern, it will be good too. Hope so.

Hey I saw part of that Bible code show, do you think that software they were talking about is readily availible?

At the risk of letting y'all know how stupid I am, WHAT IS PAX TV? Is that cable? I don't watch TV much. Right now I am headed out to help hubby seed the fields. He has been out on the tractor since daylight.

Wife & I watched an hour-long special on PAX a few months back. It seemed to bring home the possibilities of Y2K to my wife better than anything I've presented to her over the last 9 months. :-)
The presentation was a bit inflammatory. The music they used was designed to create tension in the Y2K newbie viewer. Hokey is the word that comes to mind as best describes my reaction. But then, the presentation wasn't for those who are already prepared for an 8+.
Hopefully the show referred to above is an update to the prior presentation.
Thanks for the heads-up Tim.

PAX TV is a sort of Evangelical Christian counterpoint to EWTN and CBN. The guy who started it wanted a network that espoused Christian values without GETTING RIGHT UP IN EVERYONE'S FACE ABOUT THEM ALL THE TIME, you know? The model that he chose was the fact that Jesus most often taught in parables, so PAX TV carries programs like 'Touched by an angel' and so on, that maintain family viewing standards (including fairly strict vocabulary standards), and other items of interest to the general Christian population.

I just wanted to respond to Johnny and Gordon about the bible codes. Yes, they do seem intriguing. I was researching more about them on the web and ran across this article.
I have not put much stock in them since.
PS Thanks PAX for a great concept. Family TV.
