Sunspots 94

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

Two very short movies, less than 30 seconds total. First, a baby suddenly erupts, here. Second, how to word process (You won't get the full implications of this if you have never used an actual typewriter. There are a few of us left who remember using one).

Leonard Pitts, jr., a syndicated columnist, has a web page, "What works," about, he says, some ideas that are making a positive difference in the lives of African-American children in poverty.

Christianity Today says that the two Super Bowl coaches are both Christians.

Microsoft has produced a Windows Vista Advisor tool, which will check your system for compatibility issues, and check your hardware for readiness for an upgrade. One of our computers is ready, but our laptop doesn't have enough RAM. I'm not surprised.

E Stephen Burnett has posted two installments (first and second) of a series on the Harry Potter books. Burnett writes from a Christian perspective, and is an author of fantastic literature. Let's put it this way. He doesn't think the books should be burned, but he's not sure that children should be reading them, until they can tell the difference between right and wrong at a fairly sophisticated level.

C. S. Lewis did write The Dark Tower . (There have been allegations that he didn't)

Ken Schenck has some good thoughts on the question of absolute truth. Schenck is usually one for simple answers, and he doesn't have any here, but he understands the issues, and explains them well.

Ken Schenck (Bible teacher at a Christian university) again, has some thoughts on homosexuality and Romans 1.

Henry, on the argument that the KJV is the best version of the Bible is best because 17th-century Greek scholars were better than those of today. (He argues against it.)

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.
