Star Trek Into Darkness

Today I finally got to see Star Trek Into Darkness this afternoon. I had not tried to scrupulously avoid spoilers, and so I had some sense of some details that would be coming. I had even heard some complaints from longtime fans. My feelings about the movie were on the whole positive, indeed I really [Read More…]

Worst Conspiracy Ever (Dinosaur Skin and Creationism)

Eye on the ICR has a post about the discovery of some soft material from a dead dinosaur that had survived down to the present day. Not surprisingly, some young-earth creationists have tried to misrepresent it in order to imply that it shows that dinosaurs lived more recently. But it does nothing of the sort, [Read More…]

Who Long?

This year is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. And even with some hiatuses during that period, it has reached a grand total of almost 363 hours. I’ve been rewatching the classic series, having started in 2011, and I still have a lot left… Who is planning on rewatching the entire classic series this year, [Read More…]

The Grace in Being

The Sycamore School Middle School Symphonic Band recently premiered a composition by Julie Giroux, commissioned by the estate of Dr. Donald Johnson for them. I had the privilege of hearing it live at this performance, and am happy that it was recorded and I can now share it with you! [Read more…]

Jeffrey Gibson on the Disciples’ Prayer

I had the privilege of taking a look recently at a draft of a book Jeffrey Gibson has been working on, about the Lord’s Prayer, or as he prefers it be called, the Disciples’ Prayer. He has a very interesting take on it, suggesting that a key background to the prayer is to be found [Read More…]
