Sunspots 347

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Science: Wired reports on ideas to keep Venice from sinking too much (which it has been doing).

Politics: An article in The Smithsonian Magazine on Roger Williams, a devout Christian, and founder of Rhode Island, who was instrumental in promoting the idea of separation of church and state. What do you get when you mix religion and politics? Politics.

Weekend Fisher has posted a Christian debaters code of ethics. Most or all of the Republican candidates for President, be they Christian or not, haven't measured up.

Most human beings don't measure up, actually. I'm sure I've fallen short at times.

Take care & God bless

No doubt we all have, but political debates often involve outright lies, told (I think) with knowledge that it's being done. They aren't, of course, restricted to Republicans.
