Combing the Net – 8/23/2011

A 360-degree View of the Shuttle Cockpit — Pretty cool!

Postmodernism: Dead but Not Gone — A great article from Collin Hansen, about the inevitable demise of postmodernism.

Our cultural circumstances may change, but human nature does not. Though dead, postmodernism remains with us, in so far as it reflected universal human despair apart from God, the only fully reliable source of truth, justice, and authenticity.

Gospel Men — Dane Ortlund sees four ways masculinity is expressed by Christian men today; three wrong, one right.

Christians and Yoga — This is a very interesting take on the firestorm started last year when Albert Mohler claimed that Christians should avoid yoga because it cannot be separated from its Hindu and Buddhist roots. Apparently, there is an alternative explanation for yoga’s origin coming from another recent study which hasn’t received as much press, but may be more likely to be true. I don’t know much about yoga, but I do find this conversation to be fascinating. Incidentally, I also recently picked up a copy of this author’s book Earthen Vessels: Why Our Bodies Matter to Our Faith. I’ve only leafed through it so far, but it looks really good. It’s nearing the top of my “to read” stack, so look for a review soon!

How Evangelicals May Become Truly Conservative — A great excerpt from another book I’m itching to read: From Billy Graham to Sarah Palin: Evangelicals and the Betrayal of American Conservatism.

The more I see from these guys, the more I like them:

    But what was the culture created by modernism really all about, and what was postmodernism too.

    This website provides a unique perspective. A perspective informed by the revolutionary cultural implications of Einsteins famous E=MC2 equation. An equation that pointed to the fact that is a Quantum world or that everything is really only Energy or even Conscious Light.
    An Understanding which is also quite ancient
