Existential Comics: The Wrath of Kant

The latest from Existential Comics brings philosophy, humor, and Star Trek together. And so of course I had to share it.   [Read more...]

How Dinosaurs Became Extinct

HT Nick Gotts, who got it from Sol Chrom. If there is a serious point, perhaps it is this: sometimes disaster strikes and there’s nothing you can do. But sometimes we inflict it upon ourselves. And worse still, when we divide and compete where cooperation would bring greater benefit, we set ourselves up to be [Read More...]

July 2015 Biblical Studies Carnival

Lindsay Kennedy has the latest Biblical Studies Carnival, and Phil Long has more information about other details, such as where the carnival will be next month. [Read more...]

#GenCon Religion

While there is a Sunday worship service at Gen Con (which I didn’t go to), and on Friday there was a panel about Christianity and gaming, Saturday seems to have been “religion day” at Gen Con this year. There were three sessions dedicated to the topic of religion in gaming and fiction, and I made it to [Read More...]

Cana Wedding Gift

The cartoon was shared by Allan Bevere, and seems to clearly be one of the Inherit the Mirth series. The request seems as legitimate as the request for help when wine has run out. But if we lived in a universe where such things happened, where would the cut-off point be, and would it not seem [Read More...]

You Won’t Believe The Cosmology

I shared the above Ziggy cartoon once before. But having happened across it again, I was struck by the subversive message of the cartoon. An alien that looks like an angel talks to Ziggy, a human, and then expresses amazement to another of his alien race at the cosmology humans have come up with. The reference is presumably to [Read More...]

#GenCon Selfie with Jesus

Today at Gen Con was mostly spent playing games, a nice change from the two days during which I mostly attended seminars and workshops. I did attend one seminar today, but for the rest decided that playing games with family and friends was a better use of time. One game I played is called Tigris [Read More...]

Footnoting Blogs in Academic Publications

Christopher Skinner asked a really great question on the Crux Sola blog: Do online resources belong in academic footnotes. Chris offers a qualified “no.” I would suggest a qualified “yes” instead. Several people who responded to the question rightly pointed out that even the best blog posts are more like conference papers than articles – not [Read More...]

Et YouTube, Brutus?

Via He Has A Wife You Know. Reminiscent somehow of the sacred selfies I shared recently. [Read more...]

Belief informs Behavior

Ben Irwin wrote recently on his blog: If your theology leads to behavior that is unloving or unkind, chances are there’s a problem with your theology. Belief informs behavior. Your actions are shaped in part by your theology. In which case, the ultimate test of any rule or doctrine is not, “Does it cohere intellectually?” but, “Does [Read More...]
