Rest in Peace Pope Benedict

More than anyone or anything, his writings were instrumental to my taking religions seriously.

Fr Pavone is just Pavone

Looks like he's finally been disciplined for his behavior.
Father Frank Pavone, a well-known pro-life activist and national director of the organization Priests for Life, has been dismissed from the clerical state for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop,” CNA has learned.

Regardless of your opinion on his activism, the priest swears to obey his bishop, and Mr. Pavone was not.

Ways of learning - write it down

Writing notes by hand would have given me several different tangible resources that could help me find the critical missing information: a stronger memory of the meeting I was in, the gaps in the details of the discussion that occurred, and the notes themselves that would help me trigger a stronger recall of the events just by reviewing them on paper. Detailed typed notes would not help my recall and retention of the information in the meetings in the same way that notes written by hand would, though they would have been helpful.
Very interesting - I too have always found that writing things down is much much better than typing.

Sixtus the Sixth?!

I had always thought that Sixtus was a weird name, but as Wikipedia points out, it's not the Latin way of calling someone "The Sixth", which would be Sextus (which is a Latin praenomen, hilariously), but from the Greek Xystus, meaning saved.


Zen Magnets hatchet job

Just an interesting video from a couple of years ago about how the Consumer Products Safety Commission and the glorious glorious Washington Post went after Zen Magnets for marketing magnets to adults, while ignoring the hundreds of people and companies on Amazon and other platforms actually marketing them to children. Amazing.

Tekton Ministries closing its web presence

Tekton was one of the first websites I started reading on the subject of religion, probaby even before this blog was started if I recall correctly. I wish them well in their semi-retirement and new ventures. (Blogspot link here).
