Reformation Day — Oct 31

Happy Reformation Day! On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the Castle Church doors in Wittenberg, Germany, unknowingly launching the Protestant Reformation and recovering precious truths about the Gospel.

100

My grandmother, on my mother's side, lived to be 100. My wife's grandmother, on her father's side, turned 100 yesterday. I guess it looks good for women in my family.

I had recently attended a young-Earth creation seminar where the speaker used very questionable examples of "human" footprints in Permian and Cretaceous rocks as evidence that humans and dinosaurs coexisted.

More atheist drivel: Religulous

The title of the movie "Religulous," starring comedian Bill Maher, is a combination of "Religious" and "Ridiculous." Like most of the bitter propaganda coming out of the atheist camp in the past few years, this movie will reinforce the anti-Christian attitudes among the atheists and their allies, but the content of the film is intellectually indefensible. Here …
