A good piece on the Inklings in the Chronicle of Higher Education

here. It is an interest fact that great intellectual and cultural movements often began with bands of people united by the particular form of love called friendship. The Inklings are one such movement. The English Romantics another. Dominic and Francis are another. And the most revolutionary and (at the very least) culture-building band of friends [Read More...]

The 20th Century was about atomic power

The 21st Century will be about editing the genome: CRISPR, a new genome editing tool, could transform the field of biology—and a recent study on genetically-engineered human embryos has converted this promise into media hype. But scientists have been tinkering with genomes for decades. Why is CRISPR suddenly such a big deal? The short answer is that [Read More...]

Sherry Weddell’s Follow-up Remarks on the Pew Study Results

All I can say is “Amen and Amen”: I have spent years listening to Catholics talk hopefully (or gleefully!) of certain groups of Catholics – whose theological or liturgical leanings they fear and despise – leaving the Church.

C.S. Lewis Also Died November 22, 1963

On One’s Reaction to George Zimmerman….

Lewis has a comment for all those bitterly disappointed that George Zimmerman did a good thing and who search for a stupid conspiracy theory to explain it: Suppose one reads a story of filthy atrocities in the paper.
