16 ’Elul 5768: National Play-doh Day/Collect Rocks Day/International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer/Wife Appreciation Day


NOTE: The poll is almost over. Please weigh in on the question of whether this blog should have a poll.

Worthy causes of the day: “Stop the Eleventh-Hour Assault on Endangered Species”, “Extend the Renewable Energy Tax Credit Before Month's End!”, “Urge Board to Reconsider Clemency for Troy Davis”, and “Speak out against Interstate I-3!”

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:  “The myth of al-Aqsa”: This is an interesting account of how the deliberate misidentification of the Temple Mount as “the furthest mosque” was originally done for intra-Islamic political purposes and how this dubious claim is pushed today for the purposes of jihad. The author is correct in concluding that Jews and Christians have no reason to perpetuate or participate in this fraud.

Today’s news and commentary:Today’s weird thing is “Sculpture Fun”. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
