Particle Physics, Evolutionary Biology, and Being a Christian

Let’s talk about particle physics, my past crisis with evolutionary biology, and being a follower of Christ. Those are simple topics for one blog post!  My daughter, who is clearly smarter than I am, recommended The Particle at the End of the Universe: How the Hunt for the Higgs Boson Leads Us to the EdgeContinue reading “Particle Physics, Evolutionary Biology, and Being a Christian”

Priests and Prophets… and Eating Paleo

In January, we almost mostly completed a Whole 30 reset together as a family. We’ve been here before, a couple of times, and although there were fewer bad habits to break this time, it’s always good to reassess and begin better habits over again.

Little Joys—Reruns

Reruns and streaming TV with vast catalogs of movies I’ve already seen. Comfort food TV. That’s what’s great. I watched “It’s a Wonderful Life”Continue reading “Little Joys—Reruns”

Little Joys—Bodies That Can Heal

One of our kids stayed home sick after we stayed up super late seeing Hamilton last night (It was so good!). With so many viruses floating around lately, I was hoping our immune systems would prevail through yesterday so we could all enjoy the show. We just made it. My guess is that Elvis wasContinue reading “Little Joys—Bodies That Can Heal”
