Sunspots 122

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

Elliot has posted a story about preaching to bears.

The New Liberal Bible and the New Conservative Bible have been released.

A poet has written about having a crush on the UPS man.

The Food and Drug Administration has approved second helpings at the table. (Except for some at-risk groups)

Crows (one species, anyway) can use one tool to manipulate another. (From New Scientist)

Also from New Scientist, some monkeys can do simple arithmetic.

Some weeds have become resistant to Roundup, the most widely used agricultural weedkiller. Natural selection, again.

(or something) A former Southern Baptist leader is calling for the use of imprecatory prayer (praying that God will punish someone) against an activist organization.

Free Speculative Fiction On-line has links to a number of such stories available on-line, some new (including one by Gene Wolfe) and some not so new (including seven by Cordwainer Smith).

J. K. Rowling says that she is a Christian.

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

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.
