Epigenetics – The Sins of the Father

When I was a boy, my dad would tell me I received all my good behavior from my mom, and all my bad behavior from him. At times, as a teen, I would reflect on my parents and consider my character, thinking what my dad said was more often true than not. He was joking of course, but by the time I was in my late teens, any traits I did see of my dad within myself, I wanted nothing to do with. Little did I know, the die was cast for a large part of my character. I saw the results of his poor health, stress at work, and years of smoking and drinking turn into heart attacks and a series of strokes....

43 Questions Christians can’t answer

How is it that the bible explains the earth to be 6,000 to 8,000 years old when we know that dinosaur bones are at least 65 million years old? This isn’t the only example of our planet’s age by any means, either. This is one of those ‘in house’ discussions that even educated and intelligent Christians do not agree on. Pucket is also guilty of a strawman fallacy, by misrepresenting or fabricating someone’s position on an issue, so it is easier to attack. Pucket, who asked the above question, and 49 other questions, lump all Christians as ‘Young Earthers, when many...

Science Camp and Hunter Killer Snails

This past week I took my 6th, 7th and 8th graders to the Alliance Redwood Outdoor Education Camp. It was a new experience for most of my students; many had never been away from home, their parents, or attended any kind of science camp. Several had never spent any time on the beach, so on the last day we went to Bodega Bay  and enjoyed some tide pooling with our naturalist. The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and when we left, I had a couple of them tell me their favorite part was the tide pooling and spending time exploring and playing along the beach. We walked a mile or two and...

Bodyguard of Lies

Anthony Cave Brown wrote a fascinating account that explored the clandestine war concerning the D-Day secrets of World War II. The book is full of history, real history, detailing accounts that would make a block buster hit in Hollywood, without their need to embellish the story to hold the viewers’ interest. Deadly cat and mouse games, secret meetings, double agents, code breaking, air, sea, and land missions, heroic men and women who gave their lives in secret, and perished in secret at the hands of the Gestapo. All to keep Hitler from discovering the time and locations of the D-Day...

Corvette’s in the snow

Jed and I were up at 4 AM this morning to get to High School for the wrestling tournament in Ceres. We were out the door by 4:30 A.M. and drove down to school, taking our time since the roads were not plowed yet. A fellow was leaving the casino we have to drive past, in his $60,000 Corvette. I passed him, (he was only going about 10 mph), thinking what an idiot he was for trying to drive in such conditions. We arrived at school and found out the tournament was canceled. Jed and I headed back home and the Corvette was spun out 1/2 mile before the school. He was trying to get it back on the...
