|Jan-11-17|| ||cormier: The Cure of Simon’s Mother-in-Law.
On leaving the synagogue he entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons, not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
Jesus Leaves Capernaum.
Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Simon and those who were with him pursued him
and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.”
So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.

|Jan-11-17|| ||optimal play: <playground player> Further to our recent discussion about the Australian megafauna and the possible causes of its extinction, today's Guardian just happens to have an article about that very topic...|
<Megafauna and Indigenous Australians coexisted for at least 17,000 years>
It seems I may have to retract my earlier statement claiming that the evidence for the extinction of the Australian megafauna was due to over-hunting and firing of the landscape by ancient aborigines.
Gee, if I was wrong about that then maybe I'm also wrong about evolution and the age of the universe?
Well ... probably not, but anyway, however they became extinct, I reckon it's a shame that genyornis newtoni and zygomaturus trilobus aren't around anymore.
It's like you said, the Australian megafauna is as cool as cool can be!
|Jan-12-17|| ||playground player: <optimal play> The disappearance of the North American megafauna is equally mysterious. Oh, and we, too, have that "aboriginal peoples lived in perfect harmony with nature" booshwa. Our aboriginal peoples didn't even live in harmony with each other.|
As is also the case with Australia, it can't be definitely shown when humans arrived in North America and how long they were there before the mammoths, giant sloths, and sabertooth cats became extinct.
Ah, Megalania! Ah, Thylacoleo! Cryptozoologists search for thee in vain!
No one can say God has failed to give us plenty wherewith to exercise our brains.
<Esteemed Colleagues> Well, this time the Democrats have finally nailed Donald Trump... for witchcraft!

|Jan-12-17|| ||cormier: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings...|
|Jan-12-17|| ||optimal play: <playground player> Yes, it's a myth that the aboriginal peoples of Australia or America lived in perfect harmony with nature and each other,
which is why it was logical to conclude that they were responsible for the disappearance of the megafauna.|
However this latest article casts considerable doubt on their culpability for the extinction of these ancient mammals.
Perhaps humans were just better able to adapt to climate change than the megafauna?
It's kind of ironic that homo sapiens were able to survive natural climate change but we'll probably bring about our demise through man-made climate change.
We'll go the same way as genyornis newtoni and zygomaturus trilobus into extinction through climate change -- but this time by our own hand!
|Jan-13-17|| ||playground player: <optimal play> Buck up! The good news is that "man-made Climate Change," once known as Global Warming, is utterly a hoax perpetrated by immoral, power-hungry swine. In fact, the top climate scientist at Georgia Tech has just resigned in protest over the craziness and chicanery involved in what they laughingly call "climate science."|
C'mon, now--if Obama and Kerry and Gore really believed in the bilge they're selling to the rest of us, would they keep on living like maharajahs with carbon footprints the size of Godzilla? (BTW, Obama gave himself a medal this week. Ain't he got class?)
Getting back to humans killing off the Australian and North American megafauna--well, humans certainly didn't do that in Africa, where they sure had a lot of time in which to get it done.
It's true that native Americans would sometimes drive a whole herd of bison off a cliff. Still, they didn't manage to just about kill off the bison until along came the white man with railroads and high-powered rifles.
The fact is, we plain don't know what happened to the megafauna and we'll have to keep working on the question. But that kind of work is the whole fun in being a scientist, isn't it? And much more wholesome than colluding with liberals to cook up Global Warming fables.
