Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2024-150: Click Bait: Trusting Science

The click bait was irresistible.  “Why No One Trusts Science Anymore”.  I tried to control my hearty “Amen”.  It was a lecture given by Dr. Vinay Prasad to what appeared to be professionals with a lot of degrees in science and medicine.  It seemed to be a serious attempt to express concern by someone who did not wear a tin hat.  While it was basically interesting he could have said it all in two words:  Science lies.

Actually, it isn’t science that lies.  It is the scientists and the politicians that do the lying.

Either way you need to be careful what you believe.  Develop the habit of reading between the lines.  Know the difference between fact and theory.  Ask yourself, cui bono?
