The Squirrel's Nut Cache - 7/23/09

The Nut Cache - a collection of recent things I found interesting, or amusing, or nutworthy.

Whenever you have a bunch of people over, something always seems to go wrong, right? That's happened to you? On the same week as the anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the International Space Station had the largest number of residents ever at 13. And then the toilet stopped up...

Just when you start to think that life just can't get any more weird, you read this. So now we're getting people in government who think that animals should have the right to sue people? Ideas have consequences & theology matters. Your homework this morning is to read and reflect on Genesis 9:1-3.

A Creation oriented Dinosaur museum has opened in Glendive, Montana. As you can imagine, this has generated a bit of ridicule and scorn in the local papers. I remember when I was in school, being told about the "free exchange of ideas" and how that is what "drove science." But it sure seems to me that evolutionists sure don't want to have to compete in the "marketplace of ideas." I wonder why that is?...

Remember a ways back, we had a couple of stories about people calling 911 when they couldn't get their orders right at McDonald's? Well, this guy in Denver didn't have to call the cops... he was a cop! "Was" may be the operative word, here, as I doubt that he'll be a police officer for much longer. He should have just had lunch at Pho 11's...

In times to come, this may not be so uncommon as today. If we get a new, ultra-expensive, taxpayer paid-for, socialized health care system, like it looks like we will, back-alley health care providers may be just what the doctor orders...

That's this week's Nut Cache! Keep looking up, these things fall from trees, you know...

How in the world do you find this stuff?!

1. Plugged pots are no fun. Especially when the nearest bush is several thousand miles away :o(

2. Professing to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things. Romans 1:22-23

This nomination is about as scary as the one for "Science Czar".

3.There's nothing like unslanted journalism. Why do people think the study of the "origin of life" belongs in the scientific realm anyway? Evolutionists have to have as much faith in their explanation as do creationists. Doesn't that also fall into the category of religion?

At any rate, students are totally free to exchange ideas as long as their thoughts don't involve God.

4. !

5. I wonder if she was any good?

science is always changing too...they put a lot of faith into knowledge that in a few years may change.

You don't want BO's health plan? I thought it would be great for giving everyone a Ferrari for free.

Pulling a gun because you weren't served fast enough at McDonalds???
Hey, maybe they actually had to cook it AFTER he ordered it! His meal might have been warm!!

I bet toilets won't plug in Heaven, our space technology obviously hasn't made it to the third heaven yet!

Hey, I've been to Glendive!

Dentistry from the garage! I wonder if she would rotate your tires, too!

Craig beat me to it... ya can't exactly do your business out behind a tree, when they're aren't any trees.

And the creation museum? "Tolerance" doesn't apply to Christians, only to other liberals.

And, gee, you and Dan both have a scary dentist this week!

Dan's dentist is scarier than mine...
