Human Wisdom and Trust in God - Friday, December 20th 2013 13:27

Is There a Pause in Global Warming? - Tuesday, December 17th 2013 23:12

Light in the Darkness - Monday, December 9th 2013 23:30
Click on the bears for a slighly larger picture. Leading off the entry tonight is the one of the latest addition to June's collection of nativity scenes. We picked up...
Thanksgiving 2013 - Sunday, December 1st 2013 22:09

The Worst of All Possible Worlds - Monday, November 25th 2013 14:08
Maintaining my resolve not to let this series be a polemic on the theological correctness of Calvinism or Arminianism, I shall continue with the problem of evil. In light of the...
More on the Problem of Evil - Sunday, November 24th 2013 16:31
Thanks to all those who have made comments on FB on this series, which I didn’t realize would become a series. The conversation is quickly turning to the topic of...
Triage and Evil - Saturday, November 23rd 2013 14:36
The pain to which I referred in the last two posts is a whole lot less, now that I've stopped taking the new medication Dr. B had me try. Obviously, that also means that I...
Questions on the Free Will Defense - Wednesday, November 20th 2013 21:42
By way of clarification, I've put "hurting" into the last two State of Existence boxes. For some reason I have had excruciating "flank pain." It's not like the pain for which I...
The Free Will Defense on the Problem of Evil - Tuesday, November 19th 2013 23:12
I've been meaning to write an entry like this one for quite a while. In the process of answering someone's question recently I wound up writing out some of these thoughts and...
Sheep among Wolves - Monday, November 18th 2013 22:17
Here are a few brief miscellanious items since I'm not getting around to post more frequently. "1-5 1-5 1-5 1-5 / 4-1 4-1 4-1 4-1 / 5-2 5-2 5-2 5-2 / 1-5 1-5 1-5 1-5" If...
To follow or not to follow - Wednesday, November 13th 2013 21:37
Winter has come early to Indiana this year. Temperatures are in the thirties; the ground is cold enough that the snow flurries we've had actually stick to the ground. As usual,...
Celestial Flamethrowers - Friday, November 8th 2013 21:25
Did I really say that Wilhelm Schmidt mastered all of the aboriginal languages of Australia in just a few months? I could play word games and say that I really didn’t say...
Who is the Greatest? - Wednesday, November 6th 2013 23:37
My first blog entry on the new computer. There is still much that I don’t know about this machine, but I’m beginning to find my way around. I shall reserve any further...
Confessions of a File Hoarder - Friday, November 1st 2013 23:55
  I'm kind of between computers at the moment. No I did not drop my old one; I haven't dropped a single computer in many years now. In fact, I'm using it at this very...
Charlotte and Columbia - Saturday, October 26th 2013 21:39
Let me just pick up where I left off last night--in the middle of the apologetics conference at Southern Evangelical Seminary. I gave my second presentation on Friday...
Start of a Trip and Mysticism Video - Saturday, October 26th 2013 1:17
It's been a good two weeks, consisting of three phases: two apologetics conferences in Charlotte, NC; a week at my brother Ralph's in Columbia, SC, on the occasion of...
The Greatness of God - Thursday, October 3rd 2013 22:51
I finished putting primer on the garage today. Why no pictures? you ask. Because I was too pooped to go back out there with a camera when I was done. Maybe I'll insert one...
The Transfiguration - Wednesday, October 2nd 2013 20:28
Tonight's blog entry is coming to you after a few challenging days, having had some medical tests and undergoing the preparation for them. Things went well, and all the...
The Cross of Exclusivity - Thursday, September 26th 2013 21:44
Another perfect day for working on things outside here in Smalltown, USA. You can tell that you're not, say, on the East Coast just by looking at the vehicles on our street....
... until they see the kingdom of God - Wednesday, September 25th 2013 21:40
The third absolutely perfect day in a row. Okay, I know I'm being inconsistent. I have said many times that the word "absolute" is usually totally superfluous unless you're...
The Son of Man - Monday, September 23rd 2013 16:53
I’m not at a point at the moment where personal narrations and reflections come easily, so we shall immediately go to our passage. For that matter, these observations are...
Just a Few Things - Saturday, September 14th 2013 20:20
What a beautiful day this has been! Dark blue sky, sunshine, the temperature just barely up to 70° F. A good day to work outside, so I basically finished the...
Big Announcement! - Sunday, September 8th 2013 21:09
I promised you a huge announcement for tonight. Here it is: It's been four years in the making ... and not yet quite done. It is the product of several trips to Asia and many...
Train whistles from the tunnel. - Thursday, September 5th 2013 21:33
I guess if I have called other entries in periods of sporadic blogging "Chips from the Workshop" (borrowing from Max Müller), then this one might come under some heading like...
