Great speaker and teacher. When was the last time you heard the Martin Luther quote. you can not do good theology without a beer in you hand? That's a German for you, always true to the national beverage.

What The Left Believes

Logic for the terminally stupid and no, this is not a parallel universe, it just sounds that way.

And Just When We Thought Time Was Not Running Out

"Dark Energy" --Does the Mysterious Anti-Gravitational Force Really Exist?

The team's proposal, published in the journal Physical Review D, dismisses dark energy as fiction. Instead, Senovilla says, the appearance of acceleration is caused by time itself gradually slowing down, like a clock with a run-down battery.* “We do not say that the expansion of the universe itself is an illusion," he explains. "What we say it may be an illusion is the acceleration of this expansion - that is, the possibility that the expansion is, and has been, increasing its rate."

You mean they don't know?

OK, Now Too Little Salt Is Bad For You

We Only Think We Know the Truth About Salt -

“You can say without any shadow of a doubt,” as I was told then by Drummond Rennie, an editor for The Journal of the American Medical Association, that the authorities pushing the eat-less-salt message had “made a commitment to salt education that goes way beyond the scientific facts.” While, back then, the evidence merely failed to demonstrate that salt was harmful, the evidence from studies published over the past two years actually suggests that restricting how much salt we eat can increase our likelihood of dying prematurely. Put simply, the possibility has been raised that if we were to eat as little salt as the U.S.D.A. and the C.D.C. recommend, we’d be harming rather than helping ourselves. WHY have we been told that salt is so deadly? Well, the advice h

Tiger Seems To Be Back - We Do Love Success

Tiger Woods Rallies To Win The Memorial « CBS Cleveland

Woods said he didn’t miss a shot all day, though that flop shot stands out. Click here for video of the dazzling shot on the 16th hole. “The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I’ve ever seen,” Nicklaus said from the TV booth. “Look at the position he was in. If he’s short, the tournament is over. If he’s long, the tournament is over. He puts it in the hole.”

Gotta Love Global Warming Opinions

1930s photos show Greenland glaciers retreating faster than today • The Register

Other scientists have said recently that late-20th-century temperature rises in the Arctic may result largely from clean-air legislation intended to deal with acid rain: some have even gone so far as to suggest that rapid coal- and diesel-fuelled industrialisation in China is serving to prevent further warming right now. Still other scientists, differing with Prof Box, offer another picture altogether of Arctic temperatures, in which there were peaks both in the 1930s and 1950s and cooling until the 1990s: and in which the warming trend which resulted in the melting seen by Rasmussen's expedition actually started as early as 1840, before the industrial revolution and human-driven carbon emission had even got rolling. In that scenario, variations in the Sun seem to have much more weight than is generally accepted by today's climatologists.

If We Must Make Our Choice Race Based

He doesn't have the light hearted manner of Reagan but he has the same philosophy. If we must make a decision for president based on race to soothe our white guilt, let's make the choice a good one. (I'm sure violated women auditions are are being held as we speak.)

Catholic or Christian

I guess Christianity as established by Jesus and his disciples needed improvement.

A quote from Saint Steve (Jobs)

Quote from an interview with Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple computers.
It's a political problem. The problems are sociopolitical. The problems are unions. You plot the growth of the NEA [National Education Association] and the dropping of SAT scores, and they're inversely proportional. The problems are unions in the schools. The problem is bureaucracy. I'm one of these people who believes the best thing we could ever do is go to the full voucher system.
I will say amen to that.
