    Where Does Our Sense of the Eternal Come from in a Finite World? Msgr. Charles Pope • September 7, 2016 • A common reading at the funeral Mass is this powerful one from the Book of Ecclesiastes:I have considered the task that God has appointed for the sons of men to be busied about. He has made everything appropriate to its time, and has put the timeless into their hearts, without man’s ever discovering, from beginning to end, the work which God has done (Eccl 3:10-11).Somewhere in our hearts is something that the world cannot, and did not, give...

    For the first 300,000 years after the Big Bang the rapidly expanding universe was dark and filled with neutral hydrogen gas doing nothing much. But over the next half billion years the first stars and galaxies arrive through a process known as re-ionization turning the lights on in the universe. Using an amazing Dark Energy Camera which is part of the -meter Blanco Telescope, at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO), in northern Chile, scientists have captured a picture of 23 of these young galaxies the very dawn of visual time.

    Incentive Trap 2: Minimizing the Wait Time by Paul Gilster on May 9, 2017 When to launch a starship, given that improvements in technology could lead to a much faster ship passing yours enroute? As we saw yesterday, the problem has been attacked anew by René Heller (Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research), who re-examined a 2006 paper from Andrew Kennedy on the matter. Heller defines what he calls ‘the incentive trap’ this way: The time to reach interstellar targets is potentially larger than a human lifetime, and so the question arises of whether it is currently reasonable to...

    Why Amnesty Makes Sense reads the cover of a June 2007 issue of Time magazine, teasing an immigration story inside. Is Your Baby Racist? asks a 2009 Newsweek cover. And Gender Revolution blares a January 2017 National Geographic cover featuring a transgender child. These three magazine covers, and many others like them, have something in common: They all reflect the increasingly irrational progressive worldview, according to journalist and best-selling author David Kupelian.

As my travel schedule is heavy, I am republishing some articles about life in Jesus’ day. I hope you will enjoy reading (or re-reading) them as much as I did.The modern person, especially in the West, thinks of time in a very mechanistic way. We watch the clock, which is in itself a mechanical device without intrinsic meaning. For shorter periods of time we look at the clock rather than the sun. For...

    Richard Schickel, the longtime film critic for Time magazine who also wrote 37 books, mostly on film, and directed a number of documentaries on film subjects, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of complications from a series of strokes, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He was 84. He was one of the fathers of American film criticism, his daughter, writer Erika Schickel, told the Times. He had a singular voice. When he wrote or spoke, he had an old-fashioned way of turning a phrase. He was blunt and succinct both on the page and in life. He wrote...

    The physicist and author argues that cosmologists should take the concept of time more seriously and talks about becoming a converted skeptic on climate change. ....MULLER: The flow of time does not exist in the usual spacetime diagram of physics. Time is mysterious; in any relativistic coordinate system, it is linked to space. And yet time is differentand I mean much more than simply a sign in the metric. Time flows. Choose any coordinate system and you can stand still in space but not in time. That different behavior breaks the otherwise glorious spacetime symmetry. Moreover, there is a special...
  • In The Fulness Of Time...Christmas Sermon #3

    But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.(Galatians 4:4-5)The birth of Jesus was a predicted event. Centuries before it occurred it was described as to its place, time and significance. The Prophets anticipated the birth of the one who would come to crush the serpents head and remove the primal curse, and announced beforehand the conditions which would prevail at the time of the birth. Consider one of the earlier...

As FoxNews notes however, while President-elect Donald Trump was named Time magazine's Person of the Year on Wednesday, the honor basically ended there. While describing Trump as the real change-maker of 2016, the magazine also ragged on the Republican president-elect as a "huckster" and "demagogue" while reserving its most glowing praise for runner-up Hillary Clinton -- whom the edition breathlessly described as "an American Moses." In describing Trump, Time's article almost exclusively used backhanded compliments. For instance,...

    The time-honored ritual of setting clocks back an hour is just around the corner, as daylight saving time (sometimes erroneously called daylight savings time) comes to an end for this year, at least. Do you even remember when you set your clock forward in March? In doing so, you were continuing the long tradition started by Benjamin Franklin to conserve energy. Below is a look at when daylight saving time starts and ends during the year, its history, why we have it now and some myths and interesting facts about the time change. When Does It Start and End?...

    It is the job of editorial writers, the late, great Murray Kempton once observed, to come down from the hills after the battle is over and shoot the wounded. Ive been thinking about that as publication after publication has come forward to endorse Hillary Clinton for Presidentincluding some that have never made an endorsement before and others that have never endorsed a Democrat. Well, sure: Donald Trump is unendorsable. There hasnt been a major-party candidate less fit for the presidency in American history. Ive never actually endorsed a candidate. Its not my job. Endorsements are official. They are the prerogative...
