new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

paula kirby: evolution threatens christianity

on the washington post's on faith.

i liked this paragraph the most -- for me, the very heart of the issue:

'evolution poses a further threat to christianity, though, a threat that goes to the very heart of christian teaching. evolution means that the creation accounts in the first two chapters of genesis are wrong. that's not how humans came into being, nor the cattle, nor the creeping things, nor the beasts of the earth, nor the fowl of the air. evolution could not have produced a single mother and father of all future humans, so there was no adam and no eve. no adam and eve: no fall. no fall: no need for redemption. no need for redemption: no need for a redeemer. no need for a redeemer: no need for the crucifixion or the resurrection, and no need to believe in that redeemer in order to gain eternal life. and not the slightest reason to believe in eternal life in the first place. '

  1. And yet they (Creationists) turn around and promote this so-called threat to Christianity themselves especially when they find a part of it that suits their idiocy.
