Sunspots 43

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

Sara muses about the fig tree story in the Bible.

National Public Radio has a page, with text, graphics, and sound, on the Real Uncle Tom's Cabin, in Maryland. The man who was the basis for Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel (according to this report) was inspiring. So is one of his relatives, who reads from the first man's autobiography.

Bonnie writes about The End of the Spear again, and, as usual, carefully and sanely. She asks if Bach's religious music must be played by Christians, as an analogy to the casting in the movie.

A scientist writes, for the BBC, about endangered species. He says that it is not possible to keep every species alive. On the other hand, a "Lost World," a remote location with many previously undiscovered species, has been discovered in Indonesia.

More than 80 evangelical church leaders have issued a warning about global warming. They include Rick Warren, and officials from World Vision and The Salvation Army, but many notable organizations and names are missing.

Slate's Explainer writes on Graven Images 101, relating to the current mess about anti-Muslim cartoons, and related matters, such as the Ten Commandments.

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)
