Happy Pi Day!

Since IB’s post is funny, I am sharing it.

Pi and other irrational numbers are for people who have lots of faith in math and science. Mathematics is a modelling tool. We can make models of things don’t exist, right? At best, mathematical models simplify the real world so we can exert a certain amount control over our environment.

In fact, it is possible to formulate a model with the earth as the center of the universe. =>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geocentric_model

It is bit more complicated, however. Since most of us are lazy, I expect that (not genius) explains the popularity of Occam’s razor => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam%27s_razor

See, there's this thing called biology...

Today is March 14, so it is officially 3.14, Pi Day! Happy Pi Day, everyone!

If it weren’t for Pi, we’d probably all be flat, two dimensional creatures made up of squiggly lines, just scribbles really, dreaming of some day becoming stick figures.

People who believe in constant, yet irrational numbers without end, obviously live in glass houses and should not throw stones.

the root of the trouble…

Because we are human, hypocrisy is something we have to expect from each other. Because we can be so evil, hypocrisy is something we also have to expose and oppose. Therefore, I expect that is why Julie wrote her post.

With what do we do heal the bigotry that hypocrisy can hide? Tricia writes about that here =>https://freedomthroughempowerment.wordpress.com/2019/03/03/intersectionality-and-radical-grace/

Here is the comment I left at her post.

@Tricia

Excellent! Just because we have a tendency to overlook it, I would just add the obvious. Jesus was full of both grace and truth.

Consider that we have Muslim black women getting away with bigotry in Congress. Intersectionality explains why. If a Republican white, male, Christian puts his foot in mouth and says something he probably shouldn’t have said, he ends up voting for his own censure. If someone with a intersectionality rating of 3 says something blatantly bigoted, her “apology” strangely sounds like a reaffirmation of he bigotry. I fear that poor lady needs a healthy dose of both radical grace and truth. Instead, her associates are ignoring and thereby enabling her abominable behavior.

What is Intersectionality? Read Tricia’s post.

Racism, sexism, and creedal hatred are just expressions of arrogant pride. Such bigotry is an excuse we give ourselves to lord over others. Because we so much enjoy lording over others, the longer we take to oppose true bigotry, the more difficult it is to defeat.

Roots.
Dictionary.com defines such as a part of the body of a plant that develops, typically,
from the radicle and grows downward into the soil, anchoring the plant and absorbing nutriment
and moisture.

The root system to any plant or tree is essential to its survival.
It aids in nourishing the plant as well as acting as the anchor…
that which holds the plant in place.

A deep and strong root system ensures a plants survival during strong winds, torrential rains
and even deadly droughts.

According to Merriam Webster, the word Anti-Semitism is defined by:

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

English: Drafting of the Declaration of Indepe...
English: Drafting of the Declaration of Independence. The Commitee: Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, Livingston, and Sherman. 1776. Copy of engraving after Alonzo Chappel. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is a reblog of a pro-life post. As the title indicates, the subject is that mysterious assertion, “all men are created equal”.

The author of “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL” kindly linked to a couple of my old posts. Why? If you doubt that a baby has a right to life, then please pay particular attention to this post: AN EXAMPLE OF BIGOTRY — PART 6. I hope that post will help those who have not carefully the matter to understand two things.

  1. What did Jefferson mean by the assertion that “all men are created equal”?
  2. Where and how does the Bible affirm that we are all created equal?

Newborn on scale (from here)

An infant is small and tiny. All a baby does is suck, gurgle, sleep, mess its diapers, and cry. A baby is so helpless we cannot help referring to such a little one as an “it”. Yet our hearts go out to these little ones. Don’t our hearts know they too are made in the image of God? Therefore, when Democrats blocked the passage of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection bill, one blogger titled her post this way, What Possible reason ..?

Senator Ben Sasse made a simple case for his bill.

This isn’t about restricting access to abortion. We’re talking about making sure that newborn babies are treated with dignity and receive care whether they’re born in the maternity wing or an abortion clinic. This is the bare minimum in humane treatment.

Monday’s vote should not be difficult. A lot of debates aren’t straightforward…

Liberal Democrats have expressed great concern that President Donald Trump has not kept his promise to make Mexico build his wall.
