Day’s Verse:
When was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
1 Cor. 13:11

Today being Darwin’s 197th birthday, it seems like a good time to reiterate my own personal stance on evolution and Christianity. The abridged, annotated abstract runs approximately like this: They are not mutually exclusive, and evolution doesn’t endanger the Christian faith, or God’s supremacy, at all. Read the whole page I linked to if you want supporting evidence.

On a totally separate note, many of you may have heard we’re having a doozie of a blizzard here. Actually it’s not so bad, and the snowing seems to have stopped. But I emailed Eric noting that snow plows tend to run in packs of two, three, or four, and asking if he had an explanation. He responded:

I believe the motives for running in packs are primarily territorial, and to ensure that the females of one plow company are not overtaken for mating by a rival plow company. I’ve attempted some studies on how packs of plows respond to Pavlovian learning techniques, but it’s difficult to keep the plows docile for long enough to do proper research. If only Darwin were still around 🙁

Shortly after receiving that email, Ian and I noticed a pack of three plows going by. Sure enough, the alpha male plow, which was significantly larger than the other two, led the subordinate males. Or perhaps they were females of the pack?

  1. The snow in the east actually made the news here in Sydney–it was the cute little story they toss in at the end just as they sign off–snow being an interesting curiosity here.
