Archaeology … in SPAAAAACE!

Actually, it’s archaeology from space, but I couldn’t resist a Muppets reference. Satellite data is becoming an essential tool for archaeology, as the widespread availability of improved imaging allows researchers to identify areas of formerhuman habitation that cannot be seen from the ground: Beyond the impressive mounds of earth, known as tells in Arabic, that mark lost cities, researchers [Read More...]

“Evil talks about tolerance only when it is weak”

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia offers one of the most powerful meditations on modern life I’ve seen in ages. In it, he ties together the descent of our culture into a kind of moral insanity, its eugenicist tendencies, and its profound frivolity.

Saturday Song — “My God” (Alice Cooper)

And now for something completely different… People who were surprised when shock-rocker Alice Cooper “came out” as a practicing Christian (and a conservative Republican golfing businessman, to boot) must not have paying attention.
