1) Juicy find this morning: Saruman sings heavy metal. #ineedgimmegimme
2) From a day or two ago I bookmarked this article on scientist priests throughout history. Besides listing Jesuits like Lemaitre, the inventor of the Big Bang Theory, the post throws out this interesting quote from Consolmagno: “…’religious needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism.’” Rational Catholics don’t get a lot of recognition in today’s society.
Mostly, though, I grabbed this piece because of its reference to Grimaldi who worked with diffraction of light. You may remember that a key aspect of Tribe of Liars (our family’s IP in development) is the use of lenses, microscopes and telescopes. I don’t know if I realized that a Catholic priest was the historical basis for aspects of our invented IP religion.
