Sunspots 16

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

A report in Nature, about a planet in a system with three suns.

* * * * *

Article in Slate by a writer being trained in the techniques used in cloning, and how difficult they are. (The training session used rodent eggs)

* * * * *

One blogger's take on the 15 most important science fiction works of the last 50 or so years.

Brandy has changed her blog's appearance, in a couple of interesting ways.

She has been doing a study on the Names of God. She also e-mailed me about Science Devotions, a page of over 30 devotionals (sample: Viscosity, based on Psalm 22:14) from GospelCom. I intend to work through these. She has also mentioned the Bible Toolbar for Firefox, which searches Bible Gateway.

Thanks, Brandy!

Article about the law and accessing a Wi-Fi network without authorization. At least one person has been arrested for doing this.

* * * * *

Christian Apologetics Manifesto: Seventeen Theses, is good stuff. Like many of mine, longer than the average post.

* * * * *

Truth and Blogging is a cautionary post from under the acacias.

* * * * *

The Art of Science Competition Gallery has some awesome photos. They include a view of a Fallopian Tube from within a uterus, crystals, astronomical subjects, and much more.

* * * * *

Science Magazine is not usually freely available on-line, but quite a bit of the 125th anniversary issue is. It features 125 questions that might be answered over the next 25 years, with 25 of these emphasized. They include "What is the Biological Basis of Human Consciousness?" "How Did Cooperative Behavior Evolve?" and 23 more. Each article is about a page long, written so that a reasonably intelligent non-specialist, or non-scientist, can understand the issues.

* * * * *

Alister McGrath has an essay in Science and Spirit, on how science led him to Christianity. Quote, on Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene: "Atheism seemed to be tacked on with intellectual Velcro rather than demanded by the scientific evidence Dawkins assembled."

* * * * *

About's Christianity: General page has acquired a new Guide. I personally appreciated the work of the former one, but the new person is, shall we say, more evangelical, hence probably more useful to some of my readers. The page does have an RSS feed. Warning: About puts up lots of ads.

* * * * *

A Slate writer suggests that the old-fashioned periodic table is in the process of being replaced by this spiral one.

This week's Christian Carnival is probably going to be late. I usually post Sunspots when I have publication information. Not this week. I'll probably post a link to the Christian Carnival when it is ready.

I'm glad you found the Science devotions to be useful. I immediately thought of you when I ran across them.
