Sunspots 76

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

I don't expect to be posting much, or looking at your blogs, for the next several days. We've got company coming.

Yotophoto is a search engine for free photos. You can search by keyword, or search by color, entering a color to match, or a hex value.

A science philosopher has compiled an annotated list of 26 different ways to define "species," all in recent use in the biological literature.

On the first fantasy (parable) in the Bible. (It's in Judges)

I am adding The Lost Genre Guild to the list of feeds I subscribe to. (The previous item is a post at that blog.) Their work is mostly or entirely on Christian Speculative Fiction.

From He Lives, a splendid post on Genesis 1. Sample: "Of the 1189 chapters in the Bible, the first two are about man being in fellowship with God. One is about man falling out of fellowship. The remaining 1186 are about redemption."

The pastor of a church a few miles from here reports 402 baptisms in one day .

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

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of these sources are great.

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
