This Could Actually Turn Me Catholic

As any one who knows me knows I find the idea that there is something supernaturally powerful and life saving, even god-incarnating, about Doritos pretty freaking compelling. Based on my experience with Doritos and my experience with communion wafers, only the former make any sense as a possible conduit in which Jesus comes back to [Read More...]

The (Jesuit) Father Of The Big Bang Theory

Recently, on Facebook, I boiled down my philosophical and scientific objections to theistic evolution to pithy status update size and received a good deal of discussion as a result.
