America’s mixed-up values

Martin LaBar at Sun and Shield has a great post on lessons we can learn from Kwame Brown, such as:
...we, as a society, have our priorities messed up, worse than Kwame Brown has messed up his basketball career. When we pay people who take care of our kids, and try to fix the messes we make, like teachers, social workers, and policemen, so little, and so much to people who entertain us, there's something wrong.


We forgive you, Dr. Sproul

Kristen at Walking Circumspectly relates that R. C. Sproul has apologized for his statements about women and teaching that I mentioned here.


sola scriptura and Goedel's Theorem

Dawn Eden features a post by ZippyCatholic claiming that sola scriptura can be disproved via Goedel’s theorem. Whoa. If anyone has the time and concentration to plow through the 21 comments on Zippy's post and 167 comments to Dawn’s post, more power to them! I tried, but found the whole thing rather convoluted and nonsensical, not to mention over my head. Oh well. There are, however, a lot of very interesting points made, and argued, and counter-argued...


Time to switch deodorants

From FoxNews: a recent study found that
homosexual men's brains responded more like those of women when the men sniffed a chemical from the male hormone testosterone.

Sandra Witelson, an expexpert on brain anatomy and sexual orientation at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada...who was not part of the research team, said the findings clearly show a biological involvement in sexual orientation.

In a separate study looking at people's response to the body odors of others, researchers in Philadelphia found sharp differences between gay and straight men and women.

"Our findings support the contention that gender preference has a biological component that is reflected in both the production of different body odors and in the perception of and response to body odors," said neuroscientist Charles Wysocki, who led the study.

They found that gay men differed from heterosexual men and women and from lesbian women, both in terms of which body odors gay men preferred and how their own body odors were regarded by the other groups.
