Enormous In Significance

I came across an image on Reddit, and decided to make a different version of it. The original and the altered version are shared below. I would be interested to hear whether readers think one or the other (or perhaps both) follows from the logic presented. I think this gets at the heart of the [Read More...]

Not Exactly a New Problem

UPDATE: For those who may not find it, the quote comes from Augustine’s St. Augustine, De Genesi ad litteram libri duodecim, “The Literal Meaning of Genesis,” Book 1 chapter 19.
