Occasionally hit one out of the park.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking this article is really about Trump.

December 30th, 2015 by Vader

Christmas seems to bring out the child in all of us.

So perhaps it should not have surprised me to find His Majesty playing with Tinker toys this morning.

Mea culpa

July 02nd, 2015 by The Junior Ganymede

The Junior Ganymede welcomes this guest post by Kent G. Budge.

My reaction to the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage has been decidedly mixed. By that I mean that I’ve experienced a broad range of emotions over it, none of them positive.

One emotion I haven’t experienced is surprise. We all knew this was coming, and those few of us who professed optimism that the Court might yet rule in favor of the states, or at least rule very narrowly against the states, struck me as whistling furiously in the dark.

However, one emotion I have found myself experiencing, which I did not expect, is remorse.

Why Science Does Not Disprove God

April 13th, 2015 by Bookslinger

Why science Does Not Disprove God, by Amir Aczel.

Based on interviews with eleven Nobel Prize winners and many other prominent physicists, biologists, anthropologists, and psychologists, as well as leading theologians and spiritual leaders, Why Science Does Not Disprove God is a “well-informed and readable” (Wall Street Journal) analysis of the religious implications of our ever-increasing understanding of life and the universe. The renowned science writer Amir Aczel (“One of our best science popularizers”—Publishers Weekly) masterfully refutes the overreaching claims of the “New Atheists,” providing millions of educated believers with a clear, engaging explanation of what science really says, how there’s still much space for the Divine in the universe, and why faith in both God and empirical science are not mutually exclusive.

Interview with the author, 40 minute podcast by John Batchelor.

Today, Sat Feb 21 only, free Kindle book: Obedience in the faith-versus-works discussion.

February 21st, 2015 by Bookslinger

An interesting read, by Andrew Murray, written in the 1800’s. A Life of Obedience. The Kindle edition is free for today only.

Kindle books don’t require an actual Kindle device. Free Kindle reading apps are available for smart phones, tablets, and computers.

I haven’t read the whole thing yet, but wanted to make a shout-out due to the temporary nature of the free e-book.

The books starts by quoting both Old Testament and New Testament passages that illustrate that the need for obedience surmounts the need for faith.
