Flotsam & Jetsam (11/29)

It’s Time for Radical Long-Run Optimism – “Conservatives fall into hopelessness and despair because they are trained to be pessimistic and reactionary, and from this malady they are provided no escape which is not condemned as ‘radical.'” A lengthy article, but well worth reading.

Looper: Fact or Fictional? – If you’re a fan of Looper or just time travel in general (and I’m both), this is a lot of fun to watch.

A Word from Joel Beeke – “The precious and momentous doctrine of justification by faith alone… is the heart of the evangel, the kernel of the glorious gospel of the blessed triune God, and the key to the kingdom of heaven.”

Evidence For God: A Fine-Tuned Universe – Awe-inspiring.

MovieByte: Life of Pi – “Beneath all of this, the film is about Hinduism; Eat, Pray, Love meets Castaway. It is difficult to see past the religious themes of the film to appreciate its impressive accomplishments for cinema. The message of “God is real, and manifests himself through every religion” runs rampant in Life of Pi. Not only is it very unscholarly, it just doesn’t add up. The film attempts to wed Catholicism, Islam, Hinduism, and more. It falls flat in its attempt with a brutal amount of sentimentality to hide its absurdity.”

Never – A friend and fellow blogger recently released her second novel, Never. I haven’t read it yet myself, but I’ve heard good things about it. Plus, who doesn’t like a good western?

Ripped Jeans and Pearls – Wow. Just wow. I do believe Becky has outdone herself.

“No persons are more frequently wrong, than those who will not
admit they are wrong.” – François de La Rochefoucauld
