Around the Biblioblogosphere: Nick Norelli Stinks, Thom Stark to Eat Shoe

Nick Norelli may have been spared from a serious accident because he stinks (click through to make sure that I am not just making this up). While I am glad Nick is physically OK, I am not so sure about his theology: I must confess that I am not sure why God would save his life by making him forget to put on deodorant, rather than simply fixing his brakes, if God does those sorts of things.

Elsewhere in the blogosphere, Thom Stark will have to eat his own shoe. Any advice you can give him regarding cooking and condiments to make it more palatable will be appreciated, I’m sure.

In other news, while you may not be eligible to enter the 2011 “Dance Your PhD” competition if your degree is in Biblical studies, you can participate in Accordance’s giveaway of a MacBook Air. Click through for more details.

    I think God makes most of his miracles look like perfectly normal coincidences just to make things harder on historians.

    Paul Copan speak out . . . to vindicate me: http://religionatthemargins.com/2011/09/paul-copan-speaks-out-to-vindicate-me/

    You just made that up to try to get out of eating a shoe, didn’t you? :)

    Haha! That would be great for Copan if I did! Unfortunately for him, no, I didn’t. But we’ve just had another very cordial email exchange.

    A great short also found on the Criterion release of Les Blank’s Burden of Dreams. Love me some Herzog.

    Yeah, I did wonder. :-)

    Sorry, that wasn’t very clear. I mean: I did wonder whether you’d got the idea from Herzog.

    What does this say about all the people who love God and were heading to Bible study and DID crash their cars because they lost their brakes?

    A rather “hands-off” God. When comparing 100 year lifetime to an infinite lifetime, it is irrelevant to anyone but the victim, during their lifetime. But saying there is purpose to one spared, and one not spared, is   ?    unexplainable. The bible cannot answer that question – at least to my satisfaction.
