It's a Solstice non-miracle!

A Continental flight carrying 112 passengers, bound for Houston from Denver caught fire and went off the runway during takeoff.

Although there were some injuries, all passengers successfully evacuated. We have excellent crew training to thank for the survival of all passengers.

I am sorry, I know this post is older, but I just found it through that Catholic blog that you post to and I must say it is quite funny and spot on.

No problem, comments always welcome. Thanks for stopping by.


The purpose of this blog is to open up a dialog about reaching for truth in our beliefs. My view of faith, is that it is the thing that is used to justify a belief when there is insufficeint evidence. Faith is not a valid reason for any belief, and most people agree...until it comes to their religion, then faith is the only justification.

My purpose in saying this is not to be divisive. In fact quite the contrary. I'd like to understand why people feel that faith, rather than evidence and reason, can result in beliefs that are true. I don't see faith assisting in finding truth; rather our best chance at reaching truth is through reason and reasonableness.

These posts represent short thoughts for discussion.
