It explains why progressive Americans aren’t having kids any more.
While the Earth may have been created in 6 days, the Almighty certainly has not taken a vacation. By nature, He is a creator, and he continues to create, both gradual new life on earth and new bodies outside of this earth. Here we have an instability in the rings of Saturn, forming into a new moon. This one in particular, (informally known as ‘Peggy’) is not expected to grow much larger and may not be stable. But scientists think that the rest of the moons of Saturn formed in a similar way and that the ring system of Saturn used to be much more extensive.
And in other planet related news, scientists working with the Kepler telescope have just announced discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the so-called Goldilocks Zone. This is the closest match made so far, out of the 1800+ planets discovered and it is a mere 500 light years away.
I learned from our dear prophet what a storm-tossed people need—love, prayers, and appreciation for helping hands.
The logical and imaginative grammars of belief, which still informed the thinking of earlier generations of atheists and skeptics, are no longer there.

-thus Robert Frost
The road leading to the promised land “flowing with milk and honey” of necessity runs by way of Mount Sinai, flowing with “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots.”

The US is going southwest, inevitably. That’s not a prediction, its simply looking at current births and realizing that every 20-year old 20 years from now is being born now.
“Revealed belief” is as powerful a notion as revealed preference is.
Not everyone who says “Lord, Lord” shall enter the kingdom of heaven.
Warning: do not apply the ‘revealed belief’ tool to our national political and cultural leadership if you have a history of heart trouble or depression.
John C. Wright’s book Awake in the Night Land is out.
I can’t really express how good it is. This is a book that I will be rereading and thinking about for the rest of my life. It is a book that made my eyes shine when my wife walked into the room. It is touched with holiness. (more…)
