James Garner: “the union prevailed”

Yesterday I read the news that James Garner died this past Saturday, and I was saddened. Hence the Tweet: I am genuinely saddened. Jim Rockford, you'll be missed. "Movie, TV legend James Garner dies"… via @YahooNews— Wallace Smith (@wgsmith) July 21, 2014 I didn’t know him personally, to be sure. But I have many … Continue reading

Disagreeing with Oprah

Some may believe the title is blasphemous, but, wow, I really do disagree with Oprah. She talks with me frequently, though briefly, every few days, and I generally just sit and shake my head in disagreement. Still, she prattles on, as if my opinion means nothing. We meet at Starbucks. OK, we don’t really meet at … Continue reading

Memory, the Spirit in Man, and Hemispherectomies

The most recent article I submitted for the Tomorrow’s World magazine is about the brain, and researching the topic was a real pleasure. What an amazing creation! There is a reason that “mind/brain” posts show up on my personal blog from time to time–I find the topic utterly fascinating, and I always wish I had more … Continue reading

The Four Bacteria of the Apocalypse

Looks like the fourth horseman continues his ride. I was just reading my most recent copy of New Scientist (actually, may be one behind), and it has an interesting article about the growing crisis in antibiotics resistance. In particular, an inset report caught my attention with its catchy title: “Four Bacteria of the Apocalypse.” It … Continue reading

A little unplanned blogging sabbatical…

Howdy! Wow–it’s been just about a month since I posted last! The break was not intentional, but things have been pretty crazy around here, and I do have a day job. :) From the Ministerial Conference (which was “live tweeted” by LCG here, by the way!) after the Council of Elders meeting to the Creation Weekend … Continue reading

A Few Thoughts on the Council of Elders Meeting, Spring 2014

It’s Saturday night, and life has finally calmed down a little, if only for a moment! The Sabbath today in Charlotte was wonderful. We had an excellent sermon by Mr. Rob Tyler and a convicting sermon by Mr. Gerald Weston. And after catching up with many folks afterwards, my Beautiful Wife and I had the … Continue reading

Review of Michael Behe’s Intelligent Design lecture in Cincinnati

I had an unexpected opportunity last Sunday night to attend a lecture by Intelligent Design theory advocate Michael J. Behe — professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University and author of the watershed Intelligent Design work Darwin’s Black Box. He had been invited to speak at the Schilling School for Gifted Children here in Cincinnati. SW and, I believe, CR … Continue reading

One or two spaces after a period? The controversy continues…

I have so much I want to blog about right now! I would like to post something on the presentation I attended last Sunday night featuring Intelligent Design advocate Michael Behe, and the review commentary I wrote about the Noah movie (spoiler: pro-Satan propaganda) has motivated some interesting comments, and I would love to post some additional … Continue reading

Britain’s modern Molech revival

The Bible contains many warnings to ancient Israel concerning an abhorrent practice of the Canaanites, who had previously possessed the land God had given them. We see one such example in Leviticus 18:21, “You shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech…” It was an abominable practice, in which people sought … Continue reading

AWOL on “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey”

Well, I feel I am somehow doing a disservice and failing at my “job” by not writing much about the new series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson. I love science, and I love writing about it (hence the Works of His Hands articles for the Tomorrow’s World magazine–the newest of which I am currently late … Continue reading
