The best ever reply to Ken Ham — Answers in Genesis president Ken Ham wrote “Peter Enns Wants Children to Reject Genesis: (Enns is an Evangelical Old Testament scholar who advocates a figurative Adam and Eve). Peter Enns replied with “Ken Ham Clubs Baby Seals.”
I don’t agree with either of these guys in regards to their interpretation of Genesis, but I appreciate Enns’ wit on this one.
A quote from Enns:
“…any disagreement with [Ken Ham] is de facto a disagreement with the Bible and God himself. You are, therefore, “the enemy.” Gray is not a color on his rhetorical palette.”
Ken Ham has been quite gracious in his interaction with me, but others have not been quite so fortunate.
Wanted: good cow pies — I’ve written about Ham and bacon, now I want to turn to beef; or at least something to do with cows. Because of the ongoing drought across much of the United States, some locations are experiencing a shortage of Frisbee-quality cow pies: Drought causes shortage in cow chip throw.
Google makes good maps — It starts with good data: How Google Builds Its Maps—and What It Means for the Future of Everything. I make and/or use geospatial data every work day, and so I know how critical it is to have the data right.
I’m sorry, I couldn’t think of a way to tie geospatial data into Ham, bacon, or cows.
