American “CR box” Pie

One of the awesome things about Twitter is the robust community of Science Communicators who work together sharing their expertise, their experiences, and sometimes silly things like using Rock & Roll to get a point across. The story of the Corsi-Rosenthal box is a long one that spans the country and the Internet of things.Continue reading “American “CR box” Pie”

COVID Aerosol Physics

In spite of evidence to the contrary, many people persist in the false belief that masks do not work, or that respiratory viruses are somehow not airborne. The Physics of aerosols is conceptually simple though mathematically complex. It’s also within the realm of what an undergraduate student in Physics, Chemistry, or Engineering would encounter alongContinue reading “COVID Aerosol Physics”

COVID Vaccine Ingredients

The Pfizer vaccine has the following ingredients, which are essentially the same as what’s in the Moderna version, but they use a few different salts in their pH control and the lipid formula is slightly different. The explanations under the headings that follow include the percentage that each major ingredient group comprises. mRNA lipids ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate),Continue reading “COVID Vaccine Ingredients”

True Christian Callings

Like no other time in American history, “the church” is out of line with the culture at large. What do I mean by “the church?” Like it or not, the face of American Christianity is the white evangelical Protestant (WEP). It matters little whether or not that face is truly representative of American Christianity becauseContinue reading “True Christian Callings”

On Understanding Science and Loving Your Neighbor

Science is an enterprise armed with methodological tools that describe and explain how Nature unfolds. In the Natural Sciences, we have the luxury of physical laws that lend us predictive power because of the empirically familiar regularities present in Nature. Sometimes the math is simple and sometimes it is not.  Now please forgive me asContinue reading “On Understanding Science and Loving Your Neighbor”

Musings of a Radical Disciple

A good friend, John James Kirkwood, has a You Tube channel called, “The Sparrow’s Call.” You should check it out. He says neat stuff that makes me think, and thinking deeply about things is probably my favorite thing to do. Anyway, he said some stuff today that made me think. Here are some of ourContinue reading “Musings of a Radical Disciple”

Scientific Theology | Wut?!

Well … that blog title should make most anyone squirm a bit, especially those who represent Science or Theology. Yes … the sensational headline was crafted for that very purpose. Not sorry. Before attempting to marry these two disciplines into one (assuming it’s even possible), we must first take a swing at defining each term.Continue reading “Scientific Theology | Wut?!”

Self-driving Cars and Stuff

Background Human beings with two functioning eyeballs have what researchers call stereoscopic (or binocular) vision. In other words, you see with both eyes. However, the brain delivers a cyclopean (one-eyed) perception of that binocular reality. The visual cortex then processes the images formed in the eye that subsequently activate the retina and so forth andContinue reading “Self-driving Cars and Stuff”

The Talent Training Technology Triad

A work-in-progress model for connecting the dots that make for mission success in a worship ministry. There is a conspicuous absence of the “heart of worship” because I assume one is present. It’s not an either/or proposition in selecting and developing worship community talent. It’s a both/and. Anyway, I welcome feedback because I’m not certainContinue reading “The Talent Training Technology Triad”
