"I recommend COSMOS by Carl Sagan. He describes science as more than a body of knowledge, that it's a way thinking and he showcases the scientific method of thinking throughout the ages. It was my introduction to the universe."

Looking for Book Recommendation

Hello all.  I'm looking for a book recommendation for my mom.  She is Catholic, and I'm not trying to convert her to atheism, but I think she might enjoy learning a little more about basic science.  I don't think she got much of an education on science at her Catholic schools all those years ago, and yesterday while playing a trivia board game with her, she was shocked and amazed to learn about the length of the human small intestine.  I'm looking for a book for adults that presents basic…See More

Vote on what I should do with my nativity statuettes!

Posted on December 17, 2009 at 2:18pm 7 Comments

I have no desire to ever put these up in my house. I don't think my sister would want them, not because she's not Christian, but because they're ugly. (Mary's in orange? What?)
