Sunspots 79

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

Nothing interesting to someone else, but a LOT of attack ads.

The Blueletter Bible (a free source, with several versions of the entire Bible available, including Greek, as well as public domain commentaries) now includes the ESV as one of their versions.

He Lives blog has again made a strong case that the Intelligent Design movement is not science.

Nature News reports on research that indicates that there are genetic factors that influence the success or failure of in vitro fertilization.

Slate offers the first installment of a quiz on how much you contribute to global warming. (Free membership needed)

E Stephen Burnett has posted the second of three posts on Christian speculative fiction. In the second, he says that two of the best, Lewis and Tolkien, didn't worry about the message much, or at all, just about telling a good story. Burnett was unhappy with how Christians often treated the first Narnia movie.

Don't forget Project Gutenberg. They have just posted the full text of Sir Walter Scott's The Heart of Mid-Lothian, and have already posted thousands of other older works.

Understand, Christianity is all about Christ. . . . The whole movement is all about Jesus Christ. And the last thing Jesus told His followers to do before he hightailed back to heaven was to go and make disciples. . . .
Maybe it's my movie background, but I happen to think a person's last words are pretty important. I see them as the ending of a great movie or the crescendo of a great speech. Everything that comes before builds up to those final words. . . .
It doesn't take a nuclear physicist to figure out the Savior meant what he said. He said GO. . . . the last and obviously most important thing He told His followers to do was to go and make disciples of all the nations. Stephen Baldwin with Mark Tabb, The Unusual Suspect. New York: Warner Faith, 2006. pp. 168-9.

Sara has an interesting idea on how to get on TV at sports events.

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.
