Prof. Kenneth Miller on faith & science

Kenneth Miller is the Professor of Biology at Brown University. In a recent New Statesmen article he writes: I regard scientific rationality as the key to understanding the material basis of our existence as well as our history as a species.

The UK is reaching fever pitch over the impending nuptuals of Prince William of Wales and Catherine Middleton. I was in London for a few days last week and the coverage in the free commuter papers was just incredible. Many shops have decorations out and Regent St is covered with Union Jacks, and the souvenir tat is mountainous. I bought a cheap mobile for my […]

Don Carson on Exegesis

  This is a brilliant discussion on biblical interpretation and exegesis:   RC Sproul interviews DA Carson on biblical exegesis from Ligonier on Vimeo via Justin Taylor.

Amazing micro apartment in Manhattan

This 8.5m2 Manhattan ‘micro’ studio apartment is quite incredible (except for the fact that she’s paying almost $100 per m2 – compared to our place which is under 10€ per m2): I loved the comment about the lack of kitchen: In NYC most people store their laundry in their stoves anyway
