No Miracles for Monsterlet

Reading Time: 8 minutes Mr. Captain and I have–or rather had–a cat we nicknamed Monster for how downright evil she was (but she was “just a little one”). She passed away yesterday. Her death reminded me of how David Marshall, among many other Christians, believes that this world we live in is the best possible world out of all possible configurations and that his god is in charge of all of it–and how wrong that belief is in reality.

The power of prayer…

Reading Time: 2 minutes I received this email today from an old friend:
