Joining the Club (Starting with a Phone Case)

Photo by Elizabeth Lies Yup. It's 2019, and the oceans aren't going to clean themselves. When God gave man dominion over the earth, we were meant to rule over it with stewardship and wisdom. Not to exploit its resources, or each other. Although we are called to be in this world, but not of this … Continue reading Joining the Club (Starting with a Phone Case)

Drawing the Burden

Nobody gets an A in drawing. We're started off at a C, and work our way down or up. It's not meant to be an easy class. One would have been quite pleased with a B. I'm not proud of myself because I got a perfect A. And this isn't humble bragging -- the credit … Continue reading Drawing the Burden

Four Temperaments Scale & Initial Thoughts

Hey all! Since I'm a bit of the reflective type, I decided to take the Four Temperaments personality test today. Here are my results, and my thoughts on the system. My main temperament is Melancholic, followed by Sanguine, and then Phlegmatic, and finally Choleric. I've included the results below so you can get a better … Continue reading Four Temperaments Scale & Initial Thoughts

Science & The Bible: Final Thoughts

TBH, these thoughts will never be final. To what factors do you attribute the historical antipathy between biblical authority and scientific inquiry? In your opinion, does such an antipathy persist today? Or can these systems be reconciled with one another? Should scientists take into account the scruples of religious believers in the course of their … Continue reading Science & The Bible: Final Thoughts

Acids & Bases (Basic Principles Of)

Hello hello! We're coming into the last stretch of the semester, with finals week starting this very Friday for us (yoohoo, hi Wellesley students!) So, that leaves me with one more unit of chemistry that I want to cover, which is.... acids and bases! Go ahead and check out last time's crash course on Electrochemistry if you … Continue reading Acids & Bases (Basic Principles Of)

Electrochemistry

Thrilled you're here. If you haven't already, I would recommend checking out some of my previous crash courses on Chemistry, such as Chemical Equilibrium from last week. Electrochemistry is the study of redox reactions in the production of (1) electrical currents from spontaneous chemical reactions, and (2) non-spontaneous chemical changes by the use of electrical currents. There … Continue reading Electrochemistry

Chemical Equilibrium

Thanks for joining me again for the newest installment of my crash course series on Chemistry! In case you missed it, last time I wrote on Spontaneity, Entropy, & Free Energy, and today's lesson will be on chemical equilibrium! From last time, we know that If we take the antilogarithm, we get From this equation we … Continue reading Chemical Equilibrium

Science & The Bible: Evolution and the Problem of Evil

Hello and thanks so much for joining me today as we talk about essentially the crux of the science and religion debate. If the God of Creation is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent, then why is there evil in the world?This week we will be reading Ayala's Darwin's Gift to Science and Religion, Job 3-14; 32-42.6 (RSV), and Ferngren’s Science … Continue reading Science & The Bible: Evolution and the Problem of Evil

Science & The Bible: Evolution by Natural Selection

So here it comes, the greatly anticipated reading of Darwin's Origin of Species! (Last week we started with Natural Theology) Focus the reading (On the Origin of Species) on Chapters 1, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 14. Take some time in your write-up to explain the theory of evolution by natural selection. What is it intended to … Continue reading Science & The Bible: Evolution by Natural Selection

Spontaneity, Entropy, & Free Energy

Hello there! If you're joining me for the first time, I would recommend checking out some of my previous crash course posts as well. My last post was on Thermochemistry. Today's lesson is going to be long and it's going to be hard! It won't be too bad, because I'm going to try my best to … Continue reading Spontaneity, Entropy, & Free Energy
