Post A List of Famous Seventh Day Adventists (you have to check this out guys!)Ö

I ran across this awesome site a few months ago. It lists famous Seventh Day Adventists who are a part of the church, who grew up then left the church, or who converted to SDA. It also lists a few people who had or have connections with the church. Music wise, I found it incredible that Jaci Velasquez is a Seventh Day Adventist! My favorite though (which a lot of you know): Jerome Fontamillas of the Christian rock band, Switchfoot is a Seventh Day Adventist!!!! That totally rocks! Some of the other facts are fun to know, like Kirk Franklin used to do the music for a Seventh Day Adventist church along with a Baptist church, but at the SDA church he was able to do even more contemporary sounding music, cause the Adventists liked really contemporary music more than the Baptist church (now thatís not our common stereo type!). Also check out that Paul Harvey is now a SDA (since the past few years), Prince used to be an Adventist, but is now a Jehovahís Witness, and a few other interesting things you might already know. Just kind of interesting:

Thanks for that info, it really is interesting.

I will use some of that next time I take the Sabbath School program.

Great idea, I haven't thought of using it in sabbath school (i am a sabbath school superintendent)! But I have been trying to do a series based partially from ideas i got from the Jesus Freaks books... a series on persecuted areas.

Hmmm, I had heard that Muhammad Ali in his younger years had dated some of the Adventist young ladies at Andrews University, but never thought anything of it..

Did you read what they wrote on that website about why SDA's are mentioned so rarely in Sci Fi literature?

"Another factor is the fact that the Seventh-day Adventist Church has become increasingly similar to other conservative Protestant churches. Authors are more likely to write about religious or cultural groups to the extent which those groups seem distinctive. SDAs are distinctive in many ways (such as by observing the Sabbath on Saturday) and retain a high level of group identification, but they have de-emphasized differences in positioning the church as Evangelical."

There is at least one Sci Fi author has a negative view on SDAs as it caused her? parents to divorce (when one became SDA).

It may just have more to do with numbers. There are larger apocalyptic groups than SDA's which would increase their chances of being written about in a piece of Sci Fi literature. (Of course, it's usually easier to just make up a group!)

For instance, currently in the US and Canada, there are approx. 336,000,000 citizens, but SDA's only make up about 0.24 percent (less than 1/4 of 1%) of the population for both countries respectively (North America).

On a world scale, using the highest estimates as possible (which includes the many with names still on books that do not attend an SDA church) it's about the same at about 1/4 of 1%, or 0.23 percent of the total world population.

Just some perspective.
