No Bible Story Left Untold?

Today in my freshman class, we’re beginning our discussion of Plato’s Republic. In Book II, there is a discussion of which Greek myths are appropriate to share with children. It always makes me think of the similar issue regarding Bible stories, which in turn makes me think of this video: Even some stories that are [Read More...]

Time Travel and the Bible

The blog Unreasonable Faith shared this cartoon, a Bible/Back to the Future mash up: It would presumably have been worth posting just for its humor value, and because it brings together two major themes of this blog – religion and science fiction. But I think it could actually lead nicely to some interesting and at [Read More...]

Thank God, Blame God?

I’ve long complained about the tendency of religious believers to thank God when things go well and blame others when they do not.
