The Sunday Seven

March 11, 2012

Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Sunday Seven.”  As always, this post is all about sharing some of the more interesting news and insights that I have encountered throughout the week.  What’s more, it also includes one of the funnier videos I’ve seen in quite some time.  Hopefully, there’s a little something here that will peak your interest and give you pause to think.   Enjoy!

Pastor Tim Keller on Creation and Evolution …

Creation, Evolution and Christian Lay People – Part 2Last week, I posted the first of a six-part series that Tim Keller is doing over at the Bio Logos site.  You may not agree with Keller’s take on creation/evolution, but even if you disagree, the nuggets of wisdom he sprinkles throughout the discussion are priceless.  Take for instance this week’s discussion on whether we can interpret some passages of Scripture literally while interpreting others in a non-literal fashion.  Keller has the gift of C.S. Lewis in terms of translating the seemingly-complex into the simply-profound.

Are persecuted Christians the “biggest human rights scandal of our generation?”

100 Million Christians persecuted says British group.  For those of us that live in the historically “Christianized” West, this is a great reminder that many around the globe are facing open persecution because of their faith in Jesus the Christ.

I’m not sure I would want this information.  You?

Mapping of the human genome declines to $100o per person.  As the cost of mapping the human genome continues to decline, we are approaching a time when we will possess the ability to predict our susceptibility to certain diseases.

What’s driving this trend?

Divorce rate for couples over 50 doubles over past two decades.  Though the national divorce rate has been on the decline since its all-time peak in the 1980s, “gray divorce” continues to rise, raising questions as to what is driving this trend.

From the Files of the Colossally Stupid …

I’m not telling you anything about this clip.  Just watch and enjoy.

The biggest trade in the history of the NFL?

Washington Redskins Trade for the Number Two Draft pick.  Can’t decide if this is good news or bad news for the Dallas Cowboys.  Either way, an unprecedented move in NFL history.

And back by popular demand, our friend, the Philosoraptor …

    Just to let you know, Mr. Bryant, the second link doesn’t work. At least for me, anyway. I tried it three times, and it doesn’t connect.

    Colossally stupid is, believe it or not… a colossal understatement! That’s perhaps the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen a human being attempt. What in the world motivated him to dance (and dance very badly at that) into the middle of traffic?!

    The greatest thing before sliced bread was clearly the creation of the Chicago White Sox. That or the printing press. 😉

    that video is cold

    • I’m sorry if it offended you, Bill. I’ve always had a deeply profound appreciation for human stupidity, most especially my own. Something about the lack of foresight ending in mild calamity just makes me laugh.

    Proving once again that, when it comes to knowing how to Dougie, ignorance truly is bliss.

    Knowledge is being hit with icecream trucks.

    Now pardon me while I read through this multitude of links. 😀

    (By the way, I think this Sunday Seven thing is a great idea- I like it!)

  4. Thank you, Ben. Finally, a man who understands that the joy of the video is not merely watching stupidity be run over by a car, but by an ice cream truck!

    As for the Sunday Seven, I’m glad you like it. And if you ever want to submit something, feel free to pass it along.
