Sunspots 113


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





Science:
Article about the greatest experiments in science (mostly physics) that were never done, perhaps including Galileo and dropping objects from the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

There is a "dwarf planet," Eris, that has a mass greater than the most widely known dwarf planet, Pluto.

How geckoes hang on to vertical surfaces.

Henry Neufeld on "Evolutionary vs. Scientific Thinking."

Computing:
A report on whether computer keyboards are dishwasher safe (they have more bacteria than toilet seats -- please don't tell my wife!). Probably not.

Philosophy:
(or something) Article on what religion, if any, robots will have.

Christianity:
The American Bible Society has made its Bible Resource Center available. I am not clear about their copyright policy for use of charts, graphs, and the like.

Rebecca has published another in her series "Seven Statements About the Son."

The church we are currently attending had this in the announcements: "The colors of the four lighted panels behind the cross symbolize periods of the liturgical calendar. The green represents spiritual growth and is used for all Ordinary Time. The green color will stay up from now thru November 24th, then again on the 26th of November thru the 1st of December." This reminds me that the church, and Christians, are usually in "Ordinary Time," and of the significance of green.

This week's Christian Carnival is here. For information on these Carnivals, go here.


Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
