Congratulations to Joel Watts!

One reliable sign that a blogger is taking a stand for truth and open to following the evidence where it leads is when a negative post about them appears at Answers in Genesis. Joel Watts has now had this honor. Keep up the good work! Joel and Rod already have responses and comments posted.

I love that AiG’s “refutation” of his point about unicorns is a link to their earlier article that inspired Joel to comment on the subject in the first place.

Elsewhere around the blogosphere, Mike Beidler addresses the issue of a mythological Adam.

Rachel Held Evans talks about false fundamentals.

David Hayward illustrates what happens when you ask for an answer:

RJS continues blogging about Joel Green’s book on being human.

Pete Enns wrapped up a series on evolution and Christian theological traditions at BioLogos.

Kristen Swenson blogs about the perils of Bible reading.

Adrian Worsfold explains why you shouldn’t get into a Star Trek transporter.

Charles Halton shares a classic bit of publishing wit (why a publisher might opt not to accept certain classic manuscripts if it were sent them today).

Jesus Creed shares some charts about e-book readers and some Barna results on technology use, while This Lamp offers a review of the Barnes and Noble Nook 2nd edition.

Alin Suciu blogs about two new fragments by Isaiah of Scetis.

Zev Garber has an article in The Bible and Interpretation about the Jewish Jesus.

Is there an emerging consensus regarding the Secret Gospel of Mark?

Via AMIR, hell is online, and we’re reminded about an issue of <i>Oral Tradition</i> related to Biblical studies.

Finally, Peter Kirk and That Jeff Carter have responses to my Harmonizing Judas meme. They don’t have to be in the sci-fi, genre, although I like the ones that have been so far! Time travel helps a lot!

    Joel Watts, regarding AiG’s comment, “Notice below how Joel, the Ark and AiG antagonist (and self-proclaimed Christian),” ….self-proclaimed Christian?….I didn’t know that there was any other type of Christian. Is this an insult? Does someone else proclaim you? Let me know, since I’d like to be a Christian too.

    Rachel Held Evans says….”It seems that a whole lot of people, both Christians and non-Christians, are under the impression that you can’t be a Christian and vote for a Democrat”.  No kidding? How can James cover all these sites, and still hold a regular job? I am retired, have lots of time, and I can’t read all this stuff. I hope you stop and smell the roses in Israel…and see what’s around you, instead of spending your all your time on the internet while there.

    Joel Watts and AiG, the blind leading the blind, wait that’s wrong. The blind fighting the blind. :-)

      Howard, at least they can’t hurt each other…paper cuts are obsolete in the internet age.

      and blind to what, Howard?

    @648e12af5a5b0bf9cc8f0b9b4630360d:disqus , I do indeed expect that I’ll have to either ignore many blogs, or at best send them into my Google Reader sidebar while travelling if I have a few spare minutes with free wi-fi.

    Joel, That is merely my opinion of some of your views on your blog. I do not feel you are expressing the truth of the Bible, the same way you feel about AiG.

    • http://thechurchofjesuschrist.us/ Joel

      Well, since this is not my blog, I will not engage in just how wrong you are.

    Well, that’s probably best, since you are wrong and I am wrong, two wrongs won’t make a right.

    Joel, when your name is mentioned in the title of a post, that bestows upon you the prerogative of telling anyone that they are as wrong as you think they are. ;-P

      Ha!
