Friday Roundup

Only funny because it captures an existing mindset and way of thinking that can, without any irony or awareness whatsoever, actually claim such…Indeed

If only some atheists knew how close they are to the truth…for what is this:
“…But here’s the other thing: Nothing can change the beauty in the moments that we decide to enrich each other’s lives. When the entire universe is completely cold, unimaginably vast, and silently empty trillions of years from now, nothing will change that in one part of it, however small, people felt the beauty of caring about each other. People mattered to each other because they decided to matter to each other…”
But this:
1 Cor 13:
If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing…
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

It goes from bad to worse

Trumpprobably won’t even get the Mormon vote…

If you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet on Netflix, you are missing out—a true gem—we loved it.

A nice interview here with Dr. Paul Wallace; he is both an ordained minister and astrophysicist (if the fact he is both bothers you somehow, that might say more about you than it does him or anything else for that matter)…

Certitude indeed is a disaster waiting to happen, whether for the Christian or atheist…

Evolutionas another sign pointing beyond itself, like all of creation…

Scienceas another sign pointing beyond itself, as is possible for all methods and areas of study…

    Hi, Darrell-

    Signs pointing beyond themselves? Air, courtesy of god? You are really out-doing yourself in this edition, doubling down on a faithist insistence on your conclusions over any rational way to get to them from where we are, in current reality. Obviously, the naturalist can say with far more warrant that air (evolution, ears, biology, etc.) is a sign that points to actual processes- like, say geology, cosmology, etc. that created it. Or did Jesus tell us about climate change? Oh, right- that came up in Revelation!

    Of course, no one is saying they are not also actual processes…that point beyond themselves.
