Jupiter and Creation II

This news about Jupiter is a bit old; I wrote about it over a year ago, with some Creationist ruminations.

More Excellent Name

From Mark Byron’s latest Edifier du jour, this phrase jumps out: “…having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.” (Heb 1:1-5) According to Mark Byron, “Jesus does have a more excellent name than any angel, but the word ‘name’ means more than what we commonly […]

Going to SFO for Christmas

I’m going to be in San Francisco this December for a good friend’s wedding, and I’ll be staying through Christmas till the 26th at my brother’s place in Foster City. Anyone want to meet up? I intend to be a blatant sightseeing tourist, complete with camera around my neck, loud Hawaiian shorts, and hairy legs.

More Rubenian Frothing

The Work of Natalie Bookchin

Since the topic of my research paper is net artist Natalie Bookchin, I’m going to be living, eating, and breathing her work all through the holiday while I write up 6-8 pages on the phenomenology of her art vis-a-vis the role of new media in the formation of a new postmodern cultural psyche. (No, I […]

Hiking at Robert E. Lee Memorial Park

Most of this beautiful Sunday was spent hiking around Robert E. Lee Memorial Park with a few members of Koinonia, MICA’s Christian students’ fellowship. It was a great time to walk out among the trees, sit down on the crisp leaves, and picnic on cheese and crackers by the amber light of an autumn sunset. […]
