Sunspots 562

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

The Arts: The History Blog tells us that the score of a cantata, co-written by Mozart and Salieri, has been discovered.

Christianity: Ken Schenck examines what the Bible says about divorce.
He also tells us about spiritual disciplines.

Sojourners warns Christians that history will judge them on the answers to four questions.
Benjamin L. Corey discusses the paradox that "God never changes," but that, really, God is always changing. (He is. Read the article.)

The Environment: (or something) A 6.5 minute drone's-eye video of Table Rock State Park, arguably the most scenic spot in South Carolina. In some ways, as spectacular as Yosemite, and that's saying something.
Health: FiveThirtyEight points out that the Zika virus has not yet been proved to cause birth defects, and that it will be difficult to prove this, if in fact it is true.
Humor: (or something) Gizmo's Freeware reports on Mega Tic Tac Toe, a 1 or 2 or online game, based on tic tac toe, which is available for Android, Windows, and iOS computers.
Politics: A very non-partisan statement on "Who Would Jesus Vote For?" from NewSpring Church.
Science: Listverse reports on 10 "atrocities of natural selection," among which is a cancer which is actually an organism, and more really creepy behaviors.
Listverse also reports on 10 surprising bird mating rituals, with a video of each.

Breathtaking drone video of Table Rock, Martin. I think you took us up there once. I can see why you like it so much. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Ted.

I'm sure we drove up to that State Park, but don't think we ever climbed to the top, jointly.
