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...

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

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...
Happy Boxing Day! - Thursday, December 26th 2013 21:07
Happy Boxing Day! or:  Wishing that everyone will have had a great Christmas Day, experiencing the Lord's blessings as we remember his incarnation! Well, I didn't get...
Human Wisdom and Trust in God - Friday, December 20th 2013 13:27
The picture on the right is not intended to represent opposition to the TV show "Duck Dynasty," though I very much doubt that it will ever show up on our TV screen, but that the...
Is There a Pause in Global Warming? - Tuesday, December 17th 2013 23:12
Is there currently a real pause in global warming? There are a lot of further questions connected to this one. Is there actual global warming? What causes it? To what...
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
Here we are at the end of what Seth called the "Thanksgiving Marathon." Each of us three couples (Nick & Meghan, Seth & Amber, June and your bloggist) in some...
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

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...
