Insufficient Data

While it is a great pun, I think the image makes a useful point. Some try to claim that we know more than we do, as though we can know exactly how to fill gaps in our knowledge based on what we do know. Others try to claim that we cannot logically infer anything about the [Read More…]

Formula for Holy Water

As a Baptist, we don’t really have holy water. Nonetheless, my pastor recently reflected on the memory of water – metaphorically speaking. Water is a closed system on our planet. And so when we drink it, we may well be drinking water that was in the Jordan when Jesus was baptized, or part of the [Read More…]
