Links.jpgHow can an unknown researcher make a name for himself?  Come up with a clever new theory as to why the Bible is wrong, of course.   This time, an Israeli psychologist argues that Moses was stoned, and hearing voices.   Isn't it saner to argue that the account of Moses on Mount Sinai is a myth, put together by unknown redactors drawing from the southern kingdom of Judah (the YHWHists),  the northern kingdom of Israel (the elohists), from people who really liked the law (the Deuteronomists), and from those with priestly interests.  Wait . . . that's already been done!  Wanna get published?  Better come up with something new.  This guy did.  Moses was a "dead-head."  Too much!   Click here: Moses was high on drugs: Israeli researcher

The LDS may not practice polygamy any more, but the Muslims sure do--Yes, even in America.  A surprisingly large number of Muslim men living in Canada and the United States are marrying multiple times in accordance with Sharia law.  "Don't ask, don't tell, " apparently, applies to more than gays in the military.  It also applies to Muslim practice of polygamy in the United States!  Why obey western laws and practices if you can get away with it?   Click here: Pajamas Media: Take My Wives, Please: Polygamy Heads West

Finally, it is nice to know that the Pope is catholic.   No more baptisms in the "name of the Creator, and of the Redeemer, and of the Sanctifier" or "in the name of the Creator, and of the Liberator, and of the Sustainer."  To be valid, baptisms must be conducted in the name of the Triune God.   Click here: Vatican Says Baptisms Must Use Traditional Trinity | Christianity Today | A Magazine of Evangelical Conviction

Is it just something I've noticed with the people I have encountered, or are universities filled with people who keep on developing new theories on everything? Or maybe they come up with new theories because old research and theories cannot withstand intellectual scrutiny? Perhaps in many instances, like this psychologist, they are suppressing the truth? I'm glad to be a math major.

I have seen this story on about 12 different blogs and 4 message boards. This guy has really made a name for himself.

Now maybe someone will tell the UCC and the UMC about the right baptismal language?

I don't know, is the Pope Catholic or Anabaptist now? I guess I have to look for another figure of speech to convey certainty with a tone of sacracasm.
