I call your attention to something that has just been posted on the website of the Interpreter Foundation:


Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man: The Outer Solar System: A Window to the Creative Breadth of Divinity

Part of our book chapter reprint series, this article by Jani Radebaugh originally appeared in Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man (2016).

Abstract: In this chapter, planetary scientist Jani Radebaugh explores the creative side of our Creator with a breathtaking photographic tour of the unusual planets and moons in the outer solar system. Emerging discoveries have helped open our minds to the possibilities of other worlds with life in our galaxy.


For information about Professor Jani Radebaugh, see here:






Here are two quotations from Modern Physics and Ancient Faith, by Stephen M. Barr, a cosmologist and theoretical particle physicist at the University of Delaware:


“Science has given us new eyes that allow us to see down to the deeper roots of the world’s structure, and there all we see is order and symmetry of pristine mathematical purity.” 
“The universe looks far more orderly to us now than it did to the ancients who appealed to that order as proof of God’s existence.” 




On a completely different topic, here is some potentially very good news about a terrible disease:


“Plant Compounds Used to Successfully Treat Alzheimer’s in Mice Now Shown to Prevent Other Effects of Aging”


“For the First Time, Scientists Have Reversed Dementia in Mice With Drug That Reduces Brain Inflammation”


And this may be relevant, as well:


“Why Your Brain Needs Exercise: The evolutionary history of humans explains why physical activity is important for brain health”




And there is good news to report from other fronts, as well:


“After Five Years of Drought, Kenyan Region Finally Gets Clean Water Thanks to Solar-Powered Saltwater Plant” 


“World’s First Community of 3D Printed Homes is Set to House Mexico’s Poorest Families”




But I don’t want to be merely the sunny bringer of good news, so here’s a depressing story:


“Study Finds Almost 40 Percent of People in Eight European Nations Would Like to Live “in a World Where Chemical Substances Don’t Exist”: Such scientific ignorance is common in the US as well, and can have a harmful influence on government policy.”
