Sunspots 517

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
Christianity: A blogger from Relevant warns Christians against being known for what they are against -- and there's a lot of that going around.
Why a Christianity Today blogger likes the mainstream media.

Another article on Relevant has an annotated list of things that many Christians think the Bible says, but it doesn't, such as "cleanliness is next to godliness."

And Relevant also has a post on the value (and extreme rarity) of silence in the Christian life.

Politics: FiveThirtyEight, the statistical site, says that Rand Paul, Republican Presidential candidate, will have serious problems winning the nomination.
Sports: FiveThirtyEight also says that Kentucky men's basketball coach, John Calipari, lost because he used the wrong strategy at the end of his team's Final Four match with Wisconsin, on April 4th. (Kentucky had not lost a game all season, up to that point.)
FiveThirtyEight also posted on the amazing efficiency of the Connecticut women's basketball team, compared to all other women's college basketball teams -- no wonder they won. (This was posted before the Huskies beat Notre Dame on April 7th.)
