Flotsam & Jetsam (11/5)

When Pigs Fly, Thomas Aquinas, Humility, and Us – “My father gave me in one fell swoop a rebuke and a challenge. He said to me, ‘Son, the cheapest way to develop the reputation as an intellectual is to adopt the posture of a cynic.'”An excellent reminder from R.C. Sproul, Jr.

Old Paths New Feet – Brother Down’s new album is now up on Spotify. So go listen to it. Like, now. It’s very, very good.

Gloriously Ordinary – “He doesn’t only stoop. He joys in the stooping. He joys in His being birthed into our messy little world. This. This is what we are missing from Milton. In his book, we don’t see our scarred and holy God burning away pain. We see only the guaranteed victory. We don’t see the very ordinary bits of the Story. But Christ loves the ordinary things.”

Why the Sandwich is the King of Food-Engineering – Well. If that isn’t a compelling case, I don’t know what is.

Dear Daughter, You’re Beautiful – Matt Walsh: “Hollywood and the fashion industry have concocted a ‘beauty’ that is separate and apart from reality. What they sell is a marketing ploy. It’s assembly line sexy. It’s about as beautiful as the canned food aisle at Walmart.”

The Left Is Trying to Rehabilitate Karl Marx – So let’s remind them of the millions who died in his name. As this chap points out, “you’d have to be a pretty lacking in moral sensitivity to defend a thinker whose work sent millions of people to an early grave.”

Snatching Them from the Cradle – This sounds familiar. All too familiar.

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” – Albert Einstein
