I help maintain my church website, and like many such sites it has the option for one or more internal blogs. I recently created a blog called Christian Cosmology and added a link to it on my list of links in the sidebar. The image above is from the Wikipedia article on cosmology, and it […]

I may have a little credibility problem here, because we all know that trees don’t eat bricks. But I caught an old and wily Sycamore the other morning in the very act of slurping up a brick from a nearby sidewalk, no doubt hoping it would pass unnoticed by passers-by. It takes a sharp eye […]

I’ve been blind-sided by Yet Another Book. Mercifully, this one is a short one, only 150 pages. It is Beauty for Truth’s Sake: On the Re-enchantment of Education.

The Bible says that in just six days God created the universe and earth with life of all kinds. The evidence is compelling, and I believe it. Houston, we’ve got a problem. Even […]
