“Everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.” [Read more...]

Who you gonna believe? Your facts? Or my ‘worldview’?

I see the skull beneath the skin

Some links for a soggy Wednesday: Two stories about the two options the future holds for manufactured home-owners. Mabel Williams lived a remarkable American life. A terrific video on why Philly tawks the way it does. There’s no such thing as a humble young-Earth creationist. [Read more...]
