Thinx 22: Why not consider ID (Intelligent Design)? Because ...

‘Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic.’

-- Scott Todd, Kansas State University immunologist, correspondence to Nature 410(6752):423, 30 Sept. 1999.

But no one asks the question, "Does science have to be naturalistic?"

And no one asks the deeper question, "What does 'scientific' mean?"

Thinx 21: Growing up?

Ok, so I'm setting limits and actually obeying them, but what about all the stuff that doesn't get done because I'm in bed instead of staying up to finish?

I'm more able to deal with today having slept well last night, that much is true. But I'm still haunted by the knowledge that some things still aren't getting done.

I'm choosing to do the right thing (not necessarily the easiest thing or most pleasant thing). Trusting God to take care of the details is likely the next step.
