Camels in the Ancient Near East - Sunday, February 16th 2014 16:20
I really hadn't intended to write about camels. But since the topic keeps coming up, I feel that I need to state my observations on this issue (or, really non-issue). The...
Einstein vs. Bohr, part 2 - Thursday, February 13th 2014 17:44
In the light of a rather unfortunate set of comments in Facebook, please let me reiterate what I said at the beginning of this series, which I'm assembling at a single site as...
Einstein vs. Bohr, part 1 - Wednesday, February 12th 2014 23:50
As the women's downhill ski event is on TV at the moment, a few thoughts on these Winter Olympics.June and I have watched a lot of the events so far. We don't have many places...
This little light of mine - Friday, February 7th 2014 22:12
Your industrious bloggist has been under the weather for a couple of days, just enough to keep from moving on from quantum mechanics to relativity. How did I ever get myself...
ISCA Call for Papers! - Wednesday, February 5th 2014 11:57
This post does not fall into either of the two series that I'm alternating at the moment. I've been remiss in promoting this year's ISCA program. I guess I got out of the rhythm...
Concerning Worrying - Sunday, February 2nd 2014 16:35
It's Groundhog Day. I don't know what the weather is like in Pennsylvania today, but if any local ground hog lacked the sense to remain in its hole and stuck its nose out, it...
Excluded Middle - Saturday, February 1st 2014 23:46
Before getting into the subject matter of tonight's entry, a couple of things. First, thanks to the anonymous encourager who emptied his or her piggy bank and mailed the...
The Rich Fool - Tuesday, January 28th 2014 22:43
Yes, I know that this is not the weather channel, but I still want to mention that this is one of those moments I mentioned recently. We don't have a temperature right now. I...
The Philosophy of Physicist X - Monday, January 27th 2014 23:18
Before getting further into various scientific aspects of quantum physical phenomena, I think I should make sure that we don't lose sight of the philosophical issues. The...
The Pressures of Persecution - Friday, January 24th 2014 21:50
I made a quick trip to Cox's, the local grocery store, late this afternoon (Friday) and found myself there with about half the population of Smalltown, USA (Alexandria,...
Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle - Thursday, January 23rd 2014 14:24
January continues to show why it belongs into the winter months. Once again our temperatures here in Indiana are below 0°F. Nick and Meghan's plumbing issues have finally...
The End of Hypocrisy - Tuesday, January 21st 2014 22:31
I intended for this to be another "two-for" entry, finishing my observations on hypocrisy and going on with the mysterious world of quantum mechanics. After spending much of...
Schrödinger's Cat - Sunday, January 19th 2014 20:30
Wow! More snow! Enough to keep me at home last night (Saturday) rather than playing music at Cowboy Church. I assume it was cancelled, though I didn't get any official...
More Hypocrisy - Friday, January 17th 2014 23:38
Nick and Meghan got word yesterday that their sewage system was not yet totally fixed, but that it was possible for them to move back into their house. Alas, it was only a...
Hypocrisy - Tuesday, January 14th 2014 23:11
Again, we'll begin with the biblical material and move to the philosophical issues in the second half.         ...
Lamps, Lights, and Electrons - Sunday, January 12th 2014 21:19
Since I don't want the discussion of Luke to go on ice at the expense of resuming the remarks on science and philosophy, I'm going to try to lead off Luke. The science...
The Sign of Jonah - Saturday, January 11th 2014 21:29
A quick preview: A couple of years ago I rather abruptly dropped the series on Christianity and what are now hardly "new" developments in physics, namely the theories of...
Praise from a Woman - Friday, January 10th 2014 16:58
One more item from the metereological department, and then, hopefully, things will get steady enough for us to be able to ignore it for a while. Today the temeratures are going...
An Empty House - Monday, January 6th 2014 21:52
This blog is not necessarily intended to provide up-to-the-moment weather reports, but the weather is definitely front and center of our attention. The local evening...
Jesus vs. Beelzebul - Sunday, January 5th 2014 21:24
In the small "In the Background" box, you see football play-offs as well as Betty Swinson's name. I was listening to one of her CD's earlier. Betty is an inductee in the...
Bread, Eggs, Scorpions, and Snakes - Saturday, January 4th 2014 22:58
Does anyone else have trouble keeping track of the days of the week? With Christmas and New Year's falling on Wednesdays this year, each of the subsequent Thursdays has...
The Cold, the Lord's Prayer, and Elevators - Friday, January 3rd 2014 23:42

Mary and Martha - Thursday, January 2nd 2014 22:38
If you like snow globes, this is the perfect day for you here in North-Central Indiana. As I look outside the window, I see the little white flakes performing their lilting...
A year by any other structure . . . - Wednesday, January 1st 2014 17:17
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed new year! Of course, what date on the calendar constitutes the beginning of the new year is arbitrary. Many cultures associate it with the...
The Good Samaritan - Sunday, December 29th 2013 16:46
Oh, how our minds love to establish memories, creating patterns where there were none! For example, this is what I wrote initially, before I realized that I was creating more of...
