Answers in Genesis and the Old Grey Lady

30-Jun-09

Answers in Genesis, the Christian organization devoted to the factual nature of the Genesis account of creation, built a museum in Kentucky.  The museum has been controversial since it opened, which is no surprise, but what’s surprising is that some mainstream, evolution-preaching professors are stopping by to look it over.  Not that they’re convinced, of […]

Edison Electric Institute on Waxman-Markey

29-Jun-09

The electric power industry trade group Edison Electric Institute came out in favor of the Waxman-Markey (W-M) bill.  The stated reasons for this can be found at this link, but the first paragraph repeated the usual drivel about a “low carbon future.”  By now, you can be certain that President Tom Kuhn of EEI knows […]

Net under the tightrope

28-Jun-09

For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.  (Ps 135:5-6) Something old The civilization of the historically Christian West, when it was at its best, it saw creation […]

A new meaning for “political science”

28-Jun-09

Please check this link from Powerline on how the Obama administration is forcefully quashing any recent science on global warming.  The e-mails from the EPA are especially condemning and ought to be spread around the internet as part of the opposition to Waxman-Markey as that piece of legislation goes to the senate. As I mentioned […]

If you won the Powerball jackpot

27-Jun-09

What people become in life is part genetics, part environment.  It’s been said that genetics deals the cards and environment plays them.  That’s a useful formulation when trying to understand why somebody has moral meltdown. People are born with personality traits, and some are more prone to certain things than others.  You’ve probably known people […]

The Orcs Win Round One

26-Jun-09

The Democrats’ execrable Waxman-Markey bill has passed by a narrow vote of 219 to 212.  Check this link to see if your congressman was a wise man or a fool.  Start talking to your senators and persuade them that this legislation will be catastrophic for America’s economic and energy future.  And for your own edification, […]

Waxman-Markey

26-Jun-09

The vote-trading is still in progress as I write this post, but let’s hope rumors are true that Pelosi wasn’t able to get enough sure votes, and this piece of legislative dreck is going down.  If you liked $4 gasoline, you’ll love this bill.  And here’s a kicker nobody foresaw: ConocoPhilips is saying that the […]

Give me children, or else I die

25-Jun-09

And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.  (Gen 30:1) Worst curse you ever heard of When Rebekah went to be the wife of Isaac, her family sent her out with a remarkable blessing, “Be the mother of […]

Scientific American on homosexuality

21-Jun-09

Scientific American magazine used to publish articles of scientific and engineering interest.  When I was a young teen, my parents bought me a subscription where I read about everything from topographic designs that tile a plane to oil distribution in journal bearings and the energy states of Rydberg atoms.  But things have changed for the […]

History’s largest mass suicide

21-Jun-09

Anthony Watts has posted an article by guest writer David Deming about the mass suicide of Africa’s Xhosa people brought about by a false religious prophecy.  Nearly 80,000 people deliberately and systematically destroyed every possible means of feeding themselves — and then starved to death.  Read the article here. Watts and Deming are particularly interested […]

Freakazoids for Jesus

19-Jun-09

Lots of people keep trying to put into words exactly why America’s peculiar version of Christianity is plunging headlong into defeat.  One of the best out there is David F. Wells, and I highly recommend his series of books on the subject beginning with No Place for Truth which was published many years ago.  Wells […]

Bro. Steve sojourns in the wasteland

19-Jun-09

My household doesn’t get TeeVee.  Years ago Mrs. Reed and I concluded it encouraged shoddy morals and wasting time.  However, on vacation last week we stayed in motels where TeeVee is inescapable, and we saw plenty.  It’s in the breakfast room, the exercise machine room, in the lobby, in the guest rooms, you name it. […]

No clue, but miracle expected shortly

18-Jun-09

Here’s an interesting article about biologists and chemists trying to figure out how life got started.  Spoiler warning: they don’t mention if God had anything to do with it.  The title says something about “new glimpses,” but the article merely details the old darkness.  They basically don’t know anything for sure about the subject.  The […]

Majestic judgment

18-Jun-09

The Grand Canyon is one of the world’s great wonders, and no matter how many times you see it, it never fails to overwhelm.  This canyon and others resulted from the global judgment of Noah’s time, reminding us that God is indeed sovereign.  An ancient king once said that none can stay his hand or […]

Wealth envy and the threat to freedom for us all

11-Jun-09

Just a short note for today on the Obama administration’s complaint that executives make too much money.  Whether that is actually true or not doesn’t even matter any more.  What matters is that Americans wake up to this fact: If they can do it to them, they can do it to you.  And if you […]
