Yet Another Sabbath Healing - Wednesday, April 23rd 2014 23:39
To my amazement, while June and I were on our recent trip, somehow spring managed to wheedle its way into Indiana. Over the two or so weeks of the trip, given the different...
The Curious Case of Cardinal Cajetan - Monday, April 21st 2014 22:43
I trust that everyone had a good Easter, celebrating the fact that we have a risen Savior. We are happy to be home again--at least for a while. Today (Monday) I had a return...
Home from the Wild West - Friday, April 18th 2014 21:14
June and I got home this afternoon. It was a long, good trip. I'm finding that I'm way too tired to get a blog entry together, so here's just a picture of one of our stops along...
Getting out of Dodge! - Wednesday, April 16th 2014 21:30
Dodge City obviously was a very different experience compared to the previous days of seeing the wonders of nature as God has created them. I'm tempted to say something along...
Getting into Dodge! (Kansas, that is.) - Monday, April 14th 2014 1:34
Last night June and I agreed that yesterday's drive had been a little bit too long for my tolerance, so we decided to go a much shorter distance today. I checked on the map if...
Farewell to Colorado - Sunday, April 13th 2014 0:32
Greetings from Lamar, Colorado. Yes, regretfully, though not sadly, we decided that after that lengthy and enjoyable stay in Cortez, we really couldn't rationalize going...
THANK YOU NOTE! - Friday, April 11th 2014 19:23
I just picked up our fixed Dodge Dakota from the dealer. A huge THANK YOU to the anonymous person who picked up the tab on it.  I'm humbled, flabbergasted, and deeply...
From Cortez: All around Colorado Springs - Thursday, April 10th 2014 23:48
As expected, here we are, still in Cortez, Colorado. The manager of the auto shop called this afternoon to reassure us that everything is still going as planned. Actually,...
From Cortez: ISCA and the Lost Son - Wednesday, April 9th 2014 23:07
There are two melodies that have been alternating through my mind today. "Here we are in the Tijuana Jail ..." and "Cool Water." Neither one of them is really appropriate to our...
Stranded in Cortez - Wednesday, April 9th 2014 0:30
So, here we are at the American Holiday Mesa Verda Inn, located in Cortez, Colorado. This trip has been notable in a number of ways. I have been way too tired on some nights...
Heading to ISCA - Thursday, April 3rd 2014 0:22
Here is a problem with an easy solution. Assume that there is a vehicle traveling in a straight line heading  west at 3.5x103cmsec-1 (78mph). If it keeps going at the same...
Bending Star Light - Thursday, March 27th 2014 21:02
This is another one of those entries that got started days ago, but wouldn't finish itself, so I had to step in and get it done as my energy and concentration allowed. At this...
The Weight of Light - Saturday, March 22nd 2014 21:47
How much does a beam of light weigh?   The above question may strike you as the kind of nonsense the logical positivists of the early twentieth century equated with...
Banquet Guests - Thursday, March 20th 2014 13:47
A virtually pain free dentist experience! That was a new one for me, and I must congratulate Dr. D for a great job. Unfortunately, not everything went the way it was supposed...
The Narrow Gate - Tuesday, March 18th 2014 0:18
Monday of last week I was thinking on the way to the dentist how weird it is to drive somewhere voluntarily, knowing that you are going to get hurt. It turned out that nothing...
Acceleration - Friday, March 14th 2014 0:39
[Friday afternoon: I have added some pictures and diagrams as promised. I really wanted to get this information up late last night and continue the series without too...
Yeast and Mustard Plant - Sunday, March 9th 2014 20:44
For the post on Camels in the Ancient Near East  click this link. For the ongoing series on quantum mechanics and relativity click this link. And for other...
Who's on Second; What's on First - Thursday, March 6th 2014 21:42
Who's on Second; What's on First. One of the fascinating consequences of the special theory of relativity concerns the sequence of events. More accurately it leads us to the...
Healing on the Sabbath - Wednesday, March 5th 2014 23:31
We had more snow again today! And the long-range forecast predicts some more next week. I'm sorry I'm stuck on the weather, but--then again--we're stuck with what we're...
A Fig Tree in a Vineyard - Tuesday, March 4th 2014 22:03
We've not given Luke his turn in several posts, so it's definitely time to return to the Bible passage. (I have the next entry on relativity laid out in my mind already, but...
Special Relativity and Clocks - Sunday, March 2nd 2014 18:40
How does relativity slow down clocks? I’ve phrased the question in a way that actually already embeds any number of misconceptions. However, judging by some Q&A sites...
The Speed of Light - Saturday, March 1st 2014 19:48
Just to get it out of the way, in case you’re interested, winter is still solidly ensconced here in Indiana. The forecast includes some temperatures at or below 0°F, and...
Babies, Ships, and the Ether - Monday, February 24th 2014 16:39
Student Bodies and Babies. Relativity is not a new idea. Nor is the idea that what we see is not necessarily what we get. Kenneth R. Atkins, the author of my undergraduate...
This and that--all important - Friday, February 21st 2014 22:14
The article that almost ate my life. So, I agreed a while back to write a chapter on Hegel for an upcoming anthology on modern philosophers and theology (edited by Ben Arbour...
Tumultuous Times - Tuesday, February 18th 2014 21:26
It wasn't quite a heat wave, but we actually had some thawing weather. It's going to take a while for all that snow to vanish, but at least we're heading in the right direction,...
