Wrought in God...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2020/01/12 - 12:51pm
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Farwell Totes...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2020/01/07 - 4:53pm
More stuff leaving TFL. I bought these three totes 8 years ago thinking I might use them for an aquaponics set up. Since I am not a very good farmer - I decided long ago that I would rather not kill plants AND fish. So the tanks have been sitting outside in the shade and I have basically used them only to store hay and alfalfa on top of them. Sold them to a friend of mine who is going to use them for his rainwater catchment. A local burro stopped by to help himself to some old hay that I raked away from the area.  55,70,26,0,B

Cosmology – A Religion for Atheists?

The Field Lab - Sun, 2020/01/05 - 4:01pm
In the award-winning movie A Theory of Everything Stephen Hawking introduces himself to his wife-to-be Jane by describing himself as a cosmologist. When Jane asks what that is, he replies “it’s a kind of religion for intelligent atheists.”  The remark is both provocative and revealing. Cosmology is obviously not literally a religion. It is a branch of astrophysics which studies the large-scale structure of the universe. Now if one is a naturalist, that is to say, someone who believes that all that exists is spacetime and its contents, then in a sense someone who studies the universe is studying the ultimate reality. This is the same project in which the theologian is engaged, except that for the theologian the ultimate reality is God, not the universe. The theologian has a wider, more encompassing view of reality than the naturalist, for he believes in a reality which transcends the universe. The universe is a subordinate reality which is created by God.   “The universe is just there, and that’s all.” This response is understandable on a pre-Einsteinian view of an eternal universe, but it becomes inept when confronted with the fact of the universe’s temporal beginning. Such a beginning points beyond the universe to its ground in a transcendent Creator.  Such a Creator of the universe does exist and He offers the best hope of deliverance from the somber implications of physical eschatology.  - William Lane Craig

Making progess...

The Field Lab - Thu, 2020/01/02 - 4:18pm
Two hours into my new years resolution and I am making good progress clearing out the greenhouse.  Just posted a for sale item I need to get rid of - a Weider Pro 6900 weight system I bought when I was bulking up for flying my paramotor.  Since that is no longer on my list of ways to hurt myself, I am offering it up locally really cheap.  46,58,34,0,W

a new year - a new clock

The Field Lab - Wed, 2020/01/01 - 3:27pm
After a couple of adjustments, the wooden clock is ticking away pretty well.  Now it is running for about 5 hours on a full winding and is accurate within about 4 seconds over that amount of time.  Next I am going to attempt to add a second hand with a gear made with my 3D printer.  45,56,38,0,B
