The Ridiculous and the Sublime – March 14, 2011

March 15, 2011

Sorry to get this up late. Which is preferable: Morning after or evening of?


The Ridiculous:

A New York Times article traces the current influence of Tea Party activists in Utah and does nothing dispel rumors of religion being the biggest factor in Utah voting.

David B finds fulfillment of prophecy in the recent tsunami, which should definitely be our reaction to it.

David Larsen continues his attempt to roll back biblical scholarship to the 1950s. In today’s episode, theories that are true because we want them to be true, not because evidence proves them true.

The Sublime:

Ziff considers what the internet has done to his brai…Ugh! Why can’t I get the Potter Puppet Pals song out of my head?

Mormon Heretic summarizes an article detailing women healing in the church.

There is a new church temples website. Pretty pictures abound.

Ardis offers access to yet another awesome letter from a former church leader. The trials of sea-travel have rarely been so humorously described.

MormonDeadHead wonders if Jesus would teach the manual. My guess: he would teach as one having authority of himself.

Finally, a guest post at Wheat and Tares offers an eyewitness account of the tsunami and Dave at Times and Seasons considers the various reactions to it that he has seen.
