Sunspots 133


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




Science:
This amazing statement: I also don’t think that there is really a theory of intelligent design at the present time to propose as a comparable alternative to the Darwinian theory, which is, whatever errors it might contain, a fully worked out scheme. There is no intelligent design theory that’s comparable. Working out a positive theory is the job of the scientific people that we have affiliated with the movement. Some of them are quite convinced that it’s doable, but that’s for them to prove…No product is ready for competition in the educational world. Interview with Philip Johnson, 2006, Berkeley Science Review. Johnson is, more than anyone else, the founder of the Intelligent Design movement. He is, I believe, retired from the Berkeley law faculty.

Sports:
Heard on NPR on October 30th: John Feinstein, commentator, on the National Basketball Season, in response to a remark by the anchor that "The NBA season begins tonight" responded "And it ends in two or three years." (I confess -- I watched part of a game that night. But they always do seem like long seasons, even to fans.)

Literature:
An interesting post at The Lost Genre Guild, by Grace Bridges, explaining the origin and literal meaning of the word, author.

Christianity:
Henry Neufeld on theological arguments against evolution, namely sin and death.

Henry Neufeld (again) on views of the Fall , and related topics.

"Repetition, in Hebrew, performs the work of our highlighter. A tool of emphasis. God, proclaims the six-winged angels, is not holy. He is not holy, holy. He is holy, holy, holy." (Max Lucado, It's Not About Me. Nashville, TN: Integrity, 2004, p. 38)
