Cue the Crickets

Sorry for the lame-o blogging lately. The news has just been rather boring to me lately. I don't care to cover the primary candidates much at this junction. The recently defeated immigration bill? It didn't really stay static long enough for me to figure out if I supported it or not. Is there anything else big happening in the news that I should know about? Probably not.

Now, if one of you, dear readers, should happen to find something neat out there, and think to yourself, "Gee, I wonder what Hal's moronic opinion on this is?" feel free to send me a link or a topic in the comments.

Well, it's not 'news', but I'm interested in your take on the link I'd posted in another thread:

Catholic blogger Jimmy Akin on five possible interpretations of Genesis One.

I am interested in follow up to the great series of questions you raised:

The main problem is what to do with Genesis. If it is a literal account of things, then evolution is off the table. If it's not literal but figurative, then some "fudge room" is available. However, anything less than a 100% literal interpretation makes for complicated theology. To what degree is it literal and to what degree is if figurative? Was Adam a real person? Cain and Abel? Abraham? And if Adam is not a real person, then what is the role of the fall of man? Or is that real at all?

I am also interested in having some sort of Internet Christian book discussion where we read the same book and then email regularly about it. Two possible books I had in mind are Early Christian Doctrines by Anglican J.N.D. Kelly, which I want to read, or Paul for Everyone: Romans: Part One by Anglican N.T. Wright, which I've already started. Or, I'm open to other suggestions. I would mail you a free copy of whatever book we read, if you're interested.

And now for something completely different:

Try chewing on this one.

Or, if my lame-ass link posting doesn't work, go to www.time.com and type "wage discrimination" into the archive search. It's the first article that comes up. If you're in the mood for a good rant about government stupidity, this is a good starting point.
