well, for me anyway, and for some of my more scientifically-minded readers.

One of these days I'll go into my take on evolution vs creation. This is especially hard, as I am a fairly conservative Lutheran who believes that the bible is the 'Written Innerant Word of God', as well as a well-educated molecular biologist who believes in the math that tells us how old the earth is.

Wednesday, December 24, 2008 Siphonophorae or Siphonophora, the siphonophores, are an order of the Hydrozoa, a class of marine invertebrates belonging to the phylum Cnidaria. They are colonial, but the colonies can superficially resemble jellyfish.

Although they appear to be a single organism, each specimen is actually a colony of Siphonophorae. The best known species is the dangerous Portuguese Man o" War.

Here's the link to the website it came from:

I have never understood the need to see the Bible as inerrant. Surely it is no insult to God to think that people made mistakes putting it together?

yeah, but what parts are wrong? who decides that? What if I think that God didn't mean about not cheating on your husband/wife? What if someone else decides that it's the part about killing, or stealing? Either you belive it, or you don't. Either it's all true, or none of it is.
