God is my Incompetent Co-Pilot?

Not theologically sound. Not a good advertisement for your faith. Not an excuse for inattentive driving. FAIL on multiple counts. HT Anton Toth on Facebook   [Read more…]

A Close Reading of Mark Driscoll’s Tweet

David Hayward has offered a detailed analysis of Mark Driscoll’s tweet, which I blogged about yesterday. What do you think? Does he accurately get at the meaning of the short statement and the assumptions behind it? [Read more…]

The Fringe Finale (and the LOST Finale)

The finale of Fringe was different than what Abrams and company did with the finale of LOST. Whether it was better or worse is debatable, but it was different in just about every way that it could have been different. And that makes it interesting.

First and foremost, when the texts that eventually came to make up [Read More…]
