When Galaxies Collide! Perhaps We Should Start Panicking Now?

 

Noooooooooooooooo!

We interrupt your normal fears and insecurities with a scary story that our best scientists have concluded will take place shortly. That is, if you consider 4-ish billion years from now as “short.”

Truth be told, if it’s going to happen, it has already happened, in God’s time. Anyway, it’s a really neat looking composite artists rendition of the future “Andromeda Way” Galaxy Corp. Don’t worry, as it will truly be a merger of equals. More like a marriage made in heaven. Did I mention that it will take another 2.5 to 3 billion years to consumate? A snap of the finger, literally. The folks at Space.com have the scoop, [Read more...]

There Are Zombies (For Reals!), and They are Ants…

The photograph above is creepy, ain’t it? But seeing as how the researchers don’t say that these fellows are cannibalistic, ant-eating zombie ants, I think I can still sleep well tonight. Because, as you well know by now, Catholics dig science. NPR (yep, those publicly funded, corporate sponsored, vagabonds) ) have the story.

Proof Texting A Comment Policy? I’m All For That

The folks over at Sojourners don’t have a comment policy. They have gone one better and have adopted a Comment Covenant instead. And the neat thing is that they have also provided the Biblical passages to back up their reasoning.

It’s a clearcut case of faith+reason= AWESOME. Take a look, [Read more...]
