M.J. Dominus!
Mark J. Dominus is a Perl god. But it turns out he has other interests too, and, more importantly, writes well about them. Read his blog, syndicated here on LJ as markdominus. For a sample, try this entry, on philosophical languages, Biblical approximations of pi (check out entry linked within, too, featuring our own khatul), 17th century clever bishops trained in science (an extinct species nowadays?), and serendipity.

Hat tip to gaal who alerted me to MJD's blog.

Good stuff! Thank you. I like his point regarding people who love to make fun of the bible's so-called bad science. They're certainly not being very scientific readers/historians.

Church acknolwedgement that the bible isn't a scientific source seems to go in and out of style.

I wanted to wish you a happy birthday, though I don't think I made it under the wire, with the time difference. Still - all best -
