Sunspots 142

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


Wired on the ten top genetically engineered organisms.

Wired on the ten top scientific breakthroughs of 2007.

Henry Neufeld points out that, just because someone agrees with our political (or other) opinions, they aren't necessary smart. They may just be following some demagogue or other. He has advice on balancing where we get our information.

Jan on why being grateful is good for you.

Bonnie has some important thoughts on gender-related roles in marriage.

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

Thanks for reading! Keep clicking away.

Thanks for the advice. I would actually not mind eloping at all, but I also don't want to face the wrath of Barbra Bross and Hardie Medders.

Russell Purvis said...

you know, you might be right that they won't make more movies on the Dark Materials Trilogy. "Much of the smoke and flames...wasted." I guess you're right.

Martin LaBar said...

Well, Joy, marriage should be to the family, as well as to the person. And there might have been some wrath from the other side, too. We got away with elopement, but everybody won't, and probably shouldn't. God's best, in any case.

Thanks for your comment, Russell. I did read, somewhere, that the movie company won't do the 2nd and 3rd Dark Materials because the 1st didn't do well at the box office. I didn't see it, but reviews indicated that it was confusing to viewers.
