Sunspots 195

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

Seen on a billboard in Oconee County, South Carolina:

One-Flush Plumbing
One flush beats a full house

Carl Zimmer on some recent evidence that there may be life on Mars.

Wired has an article, with photos and videos, of various animals (including birds, and both land and water mammals) that use tools.

A map of the US, showing all the mottoes of the states.

Jan, on whether "Christian music" is dying, and on whether or not that would be a good thing.

A Sports Illustrated columnist honors Tony Dungy, NFL coach who just announced his retirement, by saying that the author has never known a more decent man in the business. The article also says that Dungy didn't let coaching define his life -- he drove his kids to school. (Dungy is a Christian, although the article doesn't come out and say that directly.)

Weekend Fisher has done some serious study of the prophecies (or prophesys, as she puts it) of the New Testament. The results of her study, in a table, are here.

Henry Neufeld considers the question of how God spoke about scientific matters in the Bible.

Hi there

Thank you for the link.

I thought when you said I put it as "prophesys" you must be having fun with a typo of mine, but I couldn't find it ... Hm. Oh well.

Take care & God bless

My apologies (and I also apologized in a comment on your blog, Weekend Fisher). I stand corrected.

I'm just glad that such an egregious typo didn't actually get past me! (I'm sure it will some day ...)

Take care & God bless

Yep. If we post enough, we'll probably make almost all the errors that are possible.
