  ANACHRONISM – Official Band Website   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Anachronism is a garage band (never had a gig) formed in 1991, whose music falls under several categories.
The dictionary says an anachronism is “a thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, esp. a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned.” This name for the band was chosen since the music did not seem to fit into the contemporary music scene.
The purpose of Anachronism is to provide a creative outlet for the members, all of whom are imaginative songwriters.

  Bible Study - Anachronism
Anachronism, from the Greek words ana, meaning back, and chronos, meaning time, is the deliberate or subconscious substitution of facts related to time.
Anachronism may well be the greatest reason that humans have so many differing interpretations of the Scriptures relating to Christian Living, Bible History and Prophecy - perspectives of "truth" which, not coincidentally, almost always conveniently match the interpreter's own location, circumstances, or political and economic point of view.
Anachronism is also evident, to a lesser or greater degree, in the many translations of the original Hebrew (the "Old Testament") and Greek (the "New Testament") Scriptures that have been done throughout history.

 What is an Anachronism?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
An anachronism is something that occurs out of its proper time.
The chronological error of an anachronism can occur in either direction: it can result from something from the past being represented as if it belonged in the present, like an archaism, or it can result from presenting something at a time before it actually appeared, occurred, or existed.
Anachronism in fictional settings is also used in film spoofs, for example Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) and Shrek (2001).

 Infinity Games UK Blog: Anachronism Review
Anachronism is a pseudo-collectable card game in which players each take control of a different historical warrior in a fight to the death.
Anachronism is easy to learn and very quick to play - a typical five round game will last no longer than ten minutes, and often it can be over in five minutes.
Overall: Anachronism fails both as an educational tool and as pure entertainment, although the lack of collectability and the gorgeous components go a small way to making up for its deficiencies.

 Semantic Anachronism, Root Fallacy, Etymology - Dynamite, Power - Cheerful, Giver, Hilarious
The power of God concerning which Paul speaks he often identifies with the power that raised Jesus from the dead and as it operates in us, its goal is aiming for the wholeness and perfection implicit in the consummation of our salvation.
Quite apart from the semantic (Webster's - relating to meaning in language) anachronism, therefore dynamite appears inadequate as a means of raising Jesus from the dead or as a means of conforming us to the likeness of Christ.
In exactly the same way, it is sheer semantic anachronism to note that in the text "God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor 9:7) the Greek word behind "cheerful" is hilaron and conclude that what God really loves is a hilarious giver.
