Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
The Onion has a video about the supposed release of Time magazine's list of the 299,000,000 least influential people in the US.
William Saletan, in Slate, disagrees strongly with the reporting of a recent story on obesity:
"And the gist of this study is that obesity did not spread through the sampled population like a virus or any other materially transmitted malady. It spread culturally, individual to individual, through the relaxation of standards of personal discipline."
Henry Neufeld is unhappy with a statement about Ken Ham, of "Answers in Genesis." (The statement makes it sound like Ham is very rare -- an intelligent Christian. Neufeld says that they aren't so rare. And goes on from there.) See also a subsequent post, here.
Birth control has been proposed as a means of cutting populations of urban pigeons.
Slate on part of the history of "Christian Rock", as the article puts it. A little (or a lot) disturbing.
Get your blog's (or other website's) movie rating -- is it G, PG, R, or something else? (This one is PG)
A Christianity Today writer finds Christianity in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Another author, in the same periodical, disagrees.
