Star Wars Weather Report

Enjoy this weather report from the UK for the day that The Force Awakens premiers. It is impressive that weather reporter Sian Welby manages to incorporate so many Star Wars puns, and to do so while keeping a straight face. Well done! My hope is that the day of the premier won’t lack a Rey [Read More...]

Christian Meteorology

I had been meaning to blog about “Christian meteorology” again well before Westboro Baptist Church announced their plan to picket the National Weather Service. While the Bible contains not a single reference to picketing, it is clear that God controls the weather. And so if one is going to object to the practice and the teaching [Read More...]

The Prophets of Our Time

We had an interesting discussion of prophecy in my Sunday school class recently, as we continued working our way through 1 Corinthians. I’ve often heard people suggest that preachers are the closest equivalent today to ancient Israel’s prophets. I’ve often viewed that as a problematic stance, since it seems designed to add to the authority of [Read More...]

Tomorrow and The Day After Tomorrow

As weather forecasters are warning of a “polar vortex” set to bring record low temperatures in many areas, is anyone besides me thinking back to the apocalyptic movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” which envisaged global warming disrupting weather patterns, leading to a new ice age? The movie's scenario is obviously ridiculously extreme, but it is [Read More...]

In case you ever wondered what is at the end of the rainbow, I now have photographic evidence of the answer: the Butler University campus! There is severe weather in our area, but when the sun broke through the clouds, the result was spectacular. If you are anywhere in the region currently affected by the [Read More...]

The Godless Meteorological Conspiracy

Pete Enns linked to a blog post that makes a point I’ve often made here. If you are going to oppose evolution on the grounds that it embraces naturalism, then by golly you’ve got to really get upset about meteorology. It is secular, fundamentally opposed to Biblical teaching, and on the television 24/7. After summarizing [Read More...]
