Jewish date: 15 Tammuz 5769.
Today’s holiday: Tuesday of the Fourteenth Week of Ordinary Time.
Today’s quasi-holiday: Father and Daughter Take a Walk Day.
Worthy cause of the day: “A NUCLEAR FREE WORLD”.
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:
- “ISNA's Reform Hasn't Shed It of Radical Ideologues”: Whether or not the “true” Islam, is pro-terrorism, people who are pro-terrorism are not our friends and should not be treated as such.
- “World's oldest Christian Bible digitized”: (Submitted by David.) The Codex Sinaiticus, a copy of the Christian Bible in Greek from the 4th century, has now been made freely available on-line. This should be a boon to scholars.
- “TV gameshow offers atheists 'salvation'”: This is at best in poor taste. Religion is about the truth, not a contest for followers.
- More intolerance: “Three die in Karnataka violence” and “Faisalabad, a Christian tortured and detained on false charges of blasphemy”.
- For those of you who were wondering about the Ethiopian Orthodox Church revealing the Ark of the Covenant, they claim they were not going to do that. See “Ethiopian Ark of the Covenant Not To Be Revealed After All”.
