One of the ways we can better equip ourselves to speak truth and further understanding is to use science, logic and reasoning to look at all the evidence and draw an accurate conclusion. I’m going to cover several topics over a number of blog posts that will use science, logic and reasoning to back up our beliefs in layman’s terms so everyone can understand the evidence. The first topic we’ll be dealing with is a big one – the very existence of God. No one - God has always existed. But, just because we can’t comprehend infinite existence doesn’t mean infinite existence doesn’t exist. They can’t comprehend it, and you can’t describe it, but that doesn’t mean colors don’t exist. But, the evidence that we have can point us in the right direction and disprove what doesn’t follow according to that evidence. What’s the most plausible/logical/scientific thing to believe based on evidence. Here’s the thing: a belief in God is actually scientific and is backed up by science. Let’s get into it. The First Law of Thermodynamics (Law of Conservation of Energy). They can be converted into each other, but they can’t be created from nothing, and they can’t be destroyed so that they don’t exist (they only change into different forms).
Dear Mark: Kid Skipping Breakfast, Rinsing Meat, Glutamate, and the Snooze Button For today’s edition of Dear Mark , I’m answering four reader questions. Should she force the issue and convince her to eat breakfast, or let her do her thing. Third, is glutamic acid, or glutamate, really a health concern for everyone. MSG is one thing, but what about glutamate found in real, otherwise healthy foods like meat, sardines, and aged cheeses. My daughter has always had a natural tendency to extend her fast from dinner through the better part of the next morning (sometimes until lunch time if I don’t say anything). In the past, I’ve practically force fed her breakfast because CW says “it’s the most important meal of the day. My daughter is 11 now and I’m still not sure I’m convinced it’s ok for a child to skip breakfast. Or do you think a growing kid needs to chow down, or at least eat something, before tackling the day. I just thought I’d throw that out there in case your advice might be different for a child who wouldn’t have the same opportunity to eat whenever they want. I often fast through the breakfast hours, so I completely understand the tendency to be disinterested in breakfast. I don’t want to be a hypocrite, just raise a healthy kid.
My tiny cousin came up to me one day and asked me to help her with a poem. “the teachers asked us to write about the sun” she said. “yellow like your tiny yellow nose”. The kind of smile you put on the sun when you draw it or her if you please. We grew up to believe the sun is happy, smiling down all the time in her yellow glow not angry but quite happy. We grew up to understand that the reason she’s up there is so ‘the day is bright, bright and fair…’ Like the marching song. Then we grow older and although we’re content and glad she’s still up there, burning bright not necessary happy yellow we finally realize she’s too hot sometimes, angry maybe. Yet, there’s ever still an unconditional love that comes from an accepted necessity: the sun has to be there and she knows it. I held her hand and took her outside so we could see the sun together. I bet my cousin saw her like a tiny light bulb but I know she’s a huge spherical ball of hot plasma and we’re only just fortunate to be in the right place. I think the sun knows she must stay where she is so we don’t get burned so she doesn’t get lonely so little kids like my cousin and I (at heart).
