P. Helm on the Covenant of Redemptin (Pactum Solutis)

This is cool stuff. I'm sad that I had to wait until Seminary to hear these sorts of things:

RP gets fired up

For the moment I have no comment on this issue. I did, however, find RP's comments quite enlightening, as usual:

Update: More wisdom.

Now THIS is traffic (100 miles of craizness in China)


Nirvana & The Police do JAZZ (Vitamin Z style, grasshopper)

My buddy Zach is a killer peeanist and jazz musician. He and some buddies just released a killer/cheap album on Amazon with some great tunes on it. Lets be real, you have plenty of rock/rap/crap already filling up your itunes. Its time for some sweet Jazz chillax to balance you out and brighten your day.

Go here and buy:

Ron Paul vs. the two-headed-monster (and some yelling radio jock)

The yelling radio guy is a bit intense, but RP brings wise words, persuasive arguments, and gentle tone. As I just told a buddy, you can fake being a lawyer, but not an OB. The man, just a man, is legit.

Liberal progs need to heed the grey hair and actually BE progressive. Civil &&& economic liberty!!!

Ps, also great to know that most of our reps don't read the 'long' bills. Nice.

Bad day at the office: computer smash (yes, I know you've already seen this)

Who cares? Its still funny.

Jesus on mission in the 505 (N8 B, New City, and being missional)

Now this is libertarian church planting. ;) "More was given than was needed" (Acts 4:32) are words too seldom heard. Rise up church! Stop talking crap about the state/system and follow the lead of my buddy Nate Bush by doing something about it.

On my B-day, this I affirm (Apostles creed)

...for yours is the power and the glory, forever, amen.

This too is blog worthy: sk8ter priest

Ha. My birthday just keeps getting better:

Ron Paul to run with Palin in 12

Hahaha. NOT!!!

But this video was very entertaining and I needed a title worthy of drawing you in:

Hitchens, death, and meaning

Here is how the Maverick ends: "If materialism is true, then I think Nietzsche is right: truth is not a value; life-enhancing illusions are to be preferred.  If truth is out of all relation to human flourishing, why should we value it?"

Read the rest (its short mijos) here:

Real of Fake (Chinese prostitutes drink responsibly...thanks to you)

All this in the name of stimulus.

In relation to social justice (not robots or smoking crackberries): these are the sorts of things that private benevolence industries, especially churches, should be doing better at. We have a reason, normative-situational-existential, to help and serve the hurting and broken around us. Lets get about the business of Jesus.

A philosophical approach to Prop 8 (metaphysics and social morality)

Thanks Ed Fesser. Not only are you sharp as a tack on philosophy of mind, but you point out and expose, of utmost importance, that age old 'pretended neutrality fallacy.' This applies on both sides of the coin, liberal and conservative, mind you. In fact, Fesser's article is a challenge to conservatives, if anything.

Be warned my friends: he is not in favor of liberalism. I grant that. But this is a good piece, and I'm posting it because it at least peels back the onion a bit on issues involved at the deepest level: one's worldview, presuppositions, and fundamental metaphysical commitments. I think he is right to draw out the logical conclusions implied: it is either Nietzsche or Aristotle (Better yet, Augustine). If we predicate societal moral standards upon either a) intuition (a la Rawls) or b) contract (a la Hobbes), then in the end anything can be declared righteous. The question is where to draw the line. This piece is a helpful spring board toward an answer.

College is so cheap now...and the Academy is practially free

NOT! Read on brave soldier:

Update on Prop 8

Courtesy of W. Jacobson, J.D.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds, when (if), it comes before the Supreme Court.

I want to hug a lion (warning: cheesy Aerosmith in the background)

Awww...puppy love. Perhaps nature is not always red in tooth and claw.

SEC-recy vs Transparency (now THIS is progressive)

Rp spouts wisdom like the political qohelet that he is:
