Science Saturday - Sunday Edition

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name,
O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in
the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For You, LORD, have made me glad
through Your work;
I will triumph in the work of Your hands.

O LORD, how great are Your works!
Your thoughts are very deep.
A senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
Psalm 92:1-6

Too much TV is not just bad for the soul.  Sitting still may just be the death of you.  And lest you think your half hour jog makes up for it, find yourself a chore to do and listen to this compelling twelve minute interview while you're at it.


A new book is up high on the "To Read Soon" list here at Casa Mathers.

"Author Ethan Watters thinks that America is 'homogenizing the way the world goes mad.' In Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche, he describes how American definitions and treatments of mental illness have spread to other cultures around the world."

Read an excerpt from the book, and listen to a fascinating interview with the author here.


Laurie, a quick first look at your latest entry and a definite decision on my part to read it all properly at the first opportunity: I'm virtually on my way to Buckinghamshire.
Your writing ties in so well with Job being questioned by God - peppered with science and nature questions! May all of us who read your submission be in awe of our Sovereign and good God - even if we don't know all the answers in life.
Thanks, Laurie!
