The line between Atheism and Christianity is getting blurry! Couple of interesting articles have been brought to my attention
The first is simply the news that the Vatican have made public their belief that Darwin’s theory of evolution is compatible with Biblical teaching. Evolution (long associated with – and hijacked by – Atheism) and Christianity have long been at loggerheads, and with this revelation, along with this being the 150th year since The Origin of the Species was published, there should be calls made for open debate and more teaching on the matter.
The second is an article by Times columist Matthew Parry written just after Christmas- An Atheist who sees a need for God in Africa. A really fascinating read.
The first thing to say about snow is not that it disrupts our travel. It is not
that the economy suffers. It is not that the country cannot cope. It is not that
it started in Russia and then spread to the rest of Europe. The first thing to
say about the snow is that it is extraordinarily beautiful.
There is a joy to trampling through unspoilt snow that some children enjoyed
yesterday morning for the first time in their lives. Some children built their
first snowman and rolled their first gigantic snowball. The scene out of every
domestic window was a Christmas card from the fables of Dickens, five weeks too
late. Dull would he be of soul who would not look out of his own window and note
a scene touching in its majesty.
