The GeoChristian

The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

And the newest official dwarf planet is…

Now there are eight planets, and five dwarf planets. Pluto, Ceres, Eris, and Makemake have been joined by Haumea (how-MAY-ah, like “how may ah help you?”).

From LiveScience: Dwarf Planet Named for Hawaiian Goddess.

Some day soon, the number of dwarf planets could number in the dozens. May I suggest names that are easier to remember, such as Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc; or perhaps Gimli, Gloin, and Thorin Oakenshield.

Grace and Peace
