A La Carte (2/22)

Earth As Art - “This set of images is all about showing off the ‘beauty of the Earth,’ says Lawrence Friedl, the director of NASA’s Applied Sciences Program and the editor of a project called Earth as Art. “We want people to look at these images and say, ‘How did nature do that?’” It’s great art, even if they’re asking the wrong question.

The God of Open Options - “The false god of limitless choices, like those at a coffeehouse, is enslaving modern Americans.” This article from Christianity Today speaks of how to resist him.

Time Machine - This is a neat story of an elderly man who received quite a surprise when he restored an old car.

Keep Calm and Carry On - Carl Trueman offers some help in thinking through the latest news surrounding Tim Tebow. I believe his second point is particularly important.

The Day that Changed History - The Atlantic asks historians this question: “What day most changed the course of history?” Not surprisingly, they receive a wide array of answers. I would probably pick a different day than each of them. 

The Science of Porn Addiction - “It’s the number one topic for internet searches, but do we ever consider how pornography can have lasting neuroplastic effects? Discover the hard science behind the ‘porn epidemic’ - the internet’s drug of choice.” I’m glad to see this topic covered outside the Christian world!

When Satan tells me I am a sinner he comforts me immeasurably, since Christ died for sinners. —Martin Luther
