Sunspots 120

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

(or Christianity) An article from The Master's Seminar Journal, entitled "Jesus, evangelical scholars, and the age of the earth," presenting evidence that Jesus believed in a young earth.

Slate points out, rightly, that the report that Oscar the Cat can determine which patients are dying is anecdotal, not scientific.

A man in a "minimally conscious state" has been stimulated by electrodes, and recovered consciousness, including being able to talk.

"5 Reasons Why I Think Christian Schools/Parents Should Teach Evolution"

A college volleyball player reflects on the achievements, or something, of Barry Bonds, and others.

Article, critical of J. K. Rowling's religious beliefs, but specifying why the author is critical, and full of spoilers, so don't read it if you haven't read the seventh and last book.

Article in Christianity Today, with this title "Harry Potter 7 is Matthew 6." Don't read it if you haven't read the seventh and last book.

Elliot on how some important writers of fantastic fiction converted to Christianity as adults. (C. S. Lewis, Susan Palwick, Zenna Henderson, Cordwainer Smith, and Elizabeth Moon are in this category. All but Henderson became Anglicans/Episcopalians. Henderson became a Methodist.)

Bonnie is not writing on sex this time (at least not directly) but on virtue.

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

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
