Blog Upgrade Update

More New Christian Blogs in 2010

Many thanks once again to bloggers who have responded to my call for a list of new Christian blogs in 2010. As I said last week, I will feature several of them but not until after New Year’s Day, because of the slow traffic here during the holiday season. The invitation remains open until January […]

“Observations: In praise of scientific error”

Question: who said this? [S]cientists still worry about overcaution. Young scientists, especially, can be afraid of asking questions or delving into foundational questions for fear they’ll be thought stupid or loco—with good reason.
