If You Get The Flu

If you get the flu, what should you do to give yourself a chance to rest while also avoiding boredom? Why not go to Hulu and watch the classic epic original television series Battlestar Galactica? Admit it. It has been way too long since you’ve watched it, and Colonial Viper pilots have the coolest uniforms. [Read More...]

Interpreting Evidence

Kris Komarnitsky sent me a copy of his book Doubting Jesus’ Resurrection: What Happened In The Black Box? a while back for me to review. Since I’m falling even further behind as a result of this flu, I thought I’d link to his very recent piece that is part of a dialogue between him and [Read More...]

Do-It-Yourself Alternative Book Launch Event

Because of the flu, I’ve had to postpone the book launch event for The Only True God that was scheduled for this Wednesday (i.e. tomorrow) at 4pm. For those who had their hearts set on being there, here are some steps you can follow to hold your very own DIY book launch event. Step 1: [Read More...]

Flu

Until further notice, please consider any posts made on this blog as the incoherent rantings of a blogger deranged by fever. If you are already accustomed to regard posts on this blog in this way, please feel free to disregard this message. [Read more...]

The Shameful Truth About Male Bibliobloggers

I have too much respect for the women among bibliobloggers to not admit publicly the truth about their fellow bibliobloggers who are men, a truth that we’ve been conspiring to cover up. The truth, as shameful as it is to admit, is this: Lately women bibliobloggers have observed the underrepresentation of women among bibliobloggers, and [Read More...]

How To Solve any Computer Problem

I’ve been meaning to share this gem (HT Clayboy, who got it from XKCD) for some time… HT also to Sean the Baptist who reminded me about this. [Read more...]

Women’s Wisdom in the Biblioblogosphere

I’ve been following the discussion of women bibliobloggers with great interest, but have also been hesitant to jump into the fray, largely because of being in two minds about the matter. (Please note that, should my contribution to the discussion be deemed anything other than a wise and insightful perspective that brings clarity and resolution, [Read More...]

Review of The Lost World of Genesis One, Part Six

Proposition six picks up where the previous one left off, emphasizing that the fourth, fifth and sixth days in Genesis 1 are about the installation of “functionaries”. Here too, one finds problems from a scientific perspective if the focus is on material creation, and not problems that have to do with evolution. The text says [Read More...]

YouTube vs. Sheet Music

I was poking around online trying to find out if there was sheet music available for the Genesis song “Cinema Show” that included the fabulous keyboard solo. In the process, I came across this video: I’m not 100% sure whether this is better or worse than having the sheet music, but it certainly is fantastic [Read More...]

Review of The Lost World of Genesis One, Part Five

John Walton begins the next section of his book The Lost World of Genesis One with an anecdote about a question that led him to come up with many of the book’s insights. Most if not indeed all scholars will relate to the experience of asking a new question, or noticing a neglected detail, or [Read More...]

Western Non-Interblogations

James Tabor has a post up about the New Testament text critical issues known under the heading of “Western non-interpolations”. There’s a new blog, Peje Iesous (no, that’s not a misspelling of Pie Jesu, it’s Coptic), on which the latest post compares Columbo and the Gospel of Mark. Timo Paananen has joined the discussion on [Read More...]

The Soloist

I just watched the movie The Soloist, and highly recommend it. It is an at times disturbing, at times profoundly humorous, but certainly over all thought-provoking, challenging and inspiring look at a range of subjects from religion and friendship to mental illness and homelessness – and of course, music. I understand it is based on [Read More...]

South African Generosity

The following e-mail somehow made it past my spam filter into my inbox: May God Bless You As You Read And Reply. May our good Lord bless your going out and coming in and provide all yourneeds through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen. Dear in Christ, I am Rev Father Emmanuel Aka, I am writing [Read More...]

My A-Ha Moment

No, this isn’t yet another reference to 80s music. There’s a piece about The Only True God that has just gone up on the Butler University web page. Read it, and you’ll see why I called this what I did. [Read more...]
