Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!
I Was Once a Christian Like Mike (And it wasn’t fake), on R Scott Okamoto—“Hold my beer, John Nash. I walk through life with a trail of a dozen gods who once knew me completely.”
Predators and Prey: Was Death Part of God’s Plan All Along? on Christianity Today—“It is interesting to me that throughout Scripture, God is constantly pointing out the most vicious wild animals, from the mighty leviathan to the fierce lions, with special pride.”
The Most Gullible Man in Cambridge, on The Cut—“Over the next four years, the law professor would be drawn into a ‘campaign of fraud, extortion, and false accusations,’ as one of his lawyers would later say in legal proceedings. At one point, Hay’s family would be left suddenly homeless.” Note: This bizarre story left me wondering what else was going on.
How the Boeing 737 Max Disaster Looks to a Software Developer, on IEEE Spectrum—“Design shortcuts meant to make a new plane seem like an old, familiar one are to blame.
Maybe It’s Lyme: What happens when illness becomes an identity? on The Cut—“And here is the crux of the medical establishment’s objection to the treatment of chronic Lyme, the source of the mutual distrust between the chronic-Lyme community and mainstream medicine: the demand for a treatment as extreme as long-term and intravenous antibiotics.”
