So, I guess Catholics like their sports. Did you know that there are entire lines of rosaries devoted to sports? There are rosaries with tiny footballs for beads, as in the one above, so that you can count your Hail Marys while simultaneously praying for a hail Mary on the field. And there are rosaries with tennis balls for beads so that you can ask our Father for His love while watching the players score love. How about that? Here’s a link to purchase them.

I love it because A) it’s funny, and B) it perfectly elucidates my view on why Christianity and evolution can and should be compatible. The Nat Geo story details how many scientists believe in God and how they understand that God could have driven evolution in His process of creating us.
Here’s another quote from the story:
“Scientists may be just as likely to believe in God as other people, according to surveys. Some of history’s greatest scientific minds, including Albert Einstein, were convinced there is intelligent life behind the universe. Today many scientists say there is no conflict between their faith and their work.”
I’ve decided to start a new series. I’m calling it Angel Pets. A friend of mine named Brian gave me the idea, so I must credit him for this genius bit of kitsch with heart. I’m going to PhotoShop people’s pets into pictures with angels. Here’s how a cute little dog named Bella looks in her Angel Pet portrait.
Angel Pet: Bella
Adorable, right? If you have a pet that you’d like me to create an Angel Pet Portrait around, send me a picture of your darling (with its name) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then check my blog every Friday to see the results.
