Today is Earth Day, so let us remind ourselves of our God given mandate:
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." (Gen 1:28)
Emphasis on the words “subdue” and “dominion”
So let the strip mining commence!
Before I move on to the handful of links I found during this shortened week for me, I had the privilege this past Sunday of teaching the adult Sunday school at Grace Church, Santee. My subject for the hour was on apologetic methodology as it interfaces with evangelism. I thought I rushed through the material too quickly, but it can be hard to edit when there is so much information one has to cover in so short a time.
I put the message on-line if anyone is interested. Overview of Apologetic Methodology.
For you smarty-pants smart phone geeks, especially you Iphone people who send me emails that end with “Sent from my Iphone you loser” and other such slogans, you may want to take note of THIS.
I think a co-worker passed this paper along to me a little while ago. I was reviewing it the other day and thought it would be worth the plug:
Plucky AiG lecturer, Georgia Purdum, highlights an article by Dr. Lynn Margulis, the widow of Carl Sagan. Dr. Margulis wrote an article for the April edition of Discover magazine and at first glance, one would think she had become a creationist after reading her criticisms of evolution by natural selection and mutation. But in reality, she was endorsing her unique endosymbiotic theory of evolution.
I am sure the guardian priests of the scientific community will all rise up immediately to censor her for advocating pseudo-science voodoo and insist she be denied tenure unless she already has it.
What would the Easter season be without some archaeological flim-flam artist getting on TV or NPR to talk about the “real” historical Jesus. This year, not only do we have Bart Ehrman’s new book making the rounds, but Simcha Jacobovici claims to have found the three nails that held Jesus to the cross. Like “Wow.” That’s a pretty amazing find. How exactly did the Roman Catholics miss those relics after all this time? I mean, I would think finding the three nails of the cross would be way easier to do than, say, collecting a vial of Mary’s breast milk or a lock of baby Jesus’ hair.
Anyhow, here’s a more accurate perspective of Christ’s crucifixion: Simcha Jacobovici and The Nails from Caiaphas’ Tomb
