News and Updates:

I’ve created a new page for the Aggregator – you can find it below.

Now, for something less cool.

I really like Vox Apologia’s Symposiums – but as you may have noticed, I haven’t been promoting, or planning new ones. For several reasons.

1. It is a MASSIVE time sink.
2. The response is pretty crappy, when I don’t VERY actively promote it.
3. I’m just not getting the necessary response/feedback

Now, don’t think I’m trying to be a nag – I’m really not. But, if I’m going to do this, I’m going to need a few people to help. The volunteers I got to start with really wanted to help – but, unfortunately, almost all of us ran into time issues.

So, here is a request: If you want to see a Vox Apologia Symposium – I need you to help me put it up, and work the logistics required.

It’s a fairly large task, as any of you who have hosted one before can attest to. I moved it to a central location so that we wouldn’t have any “missing blog” issues later on. That tends to happen, if you don’t pay attention, and if the blogs in question change urls, or et cetera. Vox Apologia is a nice site – and I’ve done some neat things with it, I think. However, in order for it to be used, and live up to it’s promise, it needs more than just me maintaining it.

This post will be re-posted to Vox’s blog – and it’s an example of what you could see daily on the blog, if we had the support of multiple posters for it. The Symposium is no different – it also needs volunteers to make it work properly.

The Librarium could use maintenance and additions to it, and I have an “instant update” system in place that only takes seconds to add content or links to pertinent content. It’s really that easy.

If you enjoy this site, and all the cool stuff I have linked here – Vox could be 10 times better. It’s already a lot better. It just needs more hands to run, as it was designed big, to be run by a team. My blog is designed to be run by… me.

You could maintain the Library, help post daily-cut style roundups of apologetics material, work on the symposium, or do a host of other things. Just volunteer. It’s really easy to do something like this, if you have enough people.

If you want to help: email me.


An absolutely brilliant post from Metacrock, on Cadre Comments.

    The post is called Everything Needs a Cause, Right?.

    We hear a lot about the cosmological argument – and the Kalam argument, especially. This post does a fair job of blowing that to bits – and coming up with something more interesting in it’s place. Check it out.

I do have a reason for some of the more… unnoticed… members of the Aggregator.

The Huntington Apologetics Team has two good ones. I’m adding both to the Vox Librarium.

Cut-Rate Thesaurus:

I have a confession to make. I like country music, and I’m not even from the South. I’m marrying a southern girl, though, if that counts…

Anyway, I ran across a truly funny song recently, called The Talking Song Repair Blues, by the inimitable Alan Jackson. There’s an absolutely funny line in there.

An’ I know you’ve been using a cut-rate Thesaurus
‘Cause your adverbs are backed up into your chorus:
Now your verse is runnin’ on verbs that are way too weak.

I love it! So, as I’m running through the blogosphere, I’m going to be on the lookout for posts with serious issues.

Don’t be that blogger. You might get an award you really don’t want.

Scornful Skeptic Award:

This week’s award goes to Positive Blasphemy – mostly because they are just so over the top – it isn’t funny.

You’ll see why.

Anyway, each week will give you a different blog – which will be “awarded” the title of “Scornful Skeptic”. They get this award by being so outrageously anti-Christian, they aren’t even amusing. Just eaten up by their own self-deceit.

Science and Science Fiction:

The Minor Prophet has a couple in this category.

John Zuhone has a scientific point to make, and a resource to give us. One I agree with, one of which I don’t. My regular readers know by now which is which.

Just as a supplement – I had a recent discussion with my dad about Old Earth vs. Young Earth creationism. I also had a discussion with Chad, from Doxazo Theos, about the same basic subject over im.

Are we ready for another scientific topic for Vox Apologia? I do believe that #7 – “Creation vs. Evolution: So What?” was the biggest draw, as far as entrants, in Vox Apologia history.

So: Do we need to take another look, or a more specific look at the subject, or one similar?

How about my recent infinity discussion?

Stem Cell Research? (*cough* Imago Dei *cough*)
