Human Error

0 Comments

Heiko Hillwig said Wednesday the 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate.

Hillwig said initial conclusions indicate that human error was to blame, rather than a problem with the robot.

Remember, robots, when crushing humans, always claim human error.

Jesus is not my copilot

I love Adam4d and this comic hit a phrase that has bothered me for some time. Jesus is not my copilot, he is my pilot.

Apologetics Should Always Lead Back to the Gospel

0 Comments

It is no secret to those close to me that I love apologetics and see the lack of apologetics teaching in the American church as a major weakness today. But apologetics without the Gospel is just arguing. We aren’t in it to win fights, but to win souls.

Adobe Has Been Paying Attention to Sketch

Looks like Adobe has been paying attention. Artboards, simplified tools and editing, and much more. I’m interested to see where this goes, though apps like Macaw seem much more friendly to the modern, responsive web.

No More @1x: Apple Pulls First Gen iPad Mini

Pour one out for the OG iPad Mini, as Apple has just removed it from its website and online store, 9to5Mac reports.

Engadget

This is great news for developers. Of course when the iPad mini first came out, we only had @1x and @2x images. We still have to output two sizes. But still great news.

Why Humans Run the World

0 Comments

I know without even asking that Zeldman and I differ greatly in our worldviews, and with a title like this, I likely shouldn’t have tapped the link. But I did. And it was awesome.

The real difference between us and other animals is on the collective level.

This phrasing worried me. Humans are unique in their individuality, not their collectiveness.

Humans control the world because we are the only animal that can cooperate flexibly in large numbers. Ants and bees can also work together in large numbers, but they do so in a very rigid way. If a beehive is facing a new threat or a new opportunity, the bees cannot reinvent their social system overnight in order to cope better. They cannot, for example, execute the queen and establish a republic.

Zeldman

And then it changed. Bees and ants work collectively and, because of it, change doesn’t come easily. Why is this that humans are even different than chimps? We were designed differently. This was what we were designed for. God told us to go forth to the corners of the earth and be fruitful. Ultimately, mankind runs the world because God intended it, but this article gives many reasons why we are better suited for that role than any other creature on the planet.

Pray for Charleston

0 Comments

When the victims have been buried, when the murderer has been tried and justice has been served, we will still be praying. We will pray for the survivors. We will pray for the families. We will pray for the community. We will pray for racial peace and harmony. We will pray because that’s what we were doing. We will pray because we will not be silenced until we take our dying breath. And we will pray that we’ll be faithful to the end just like the nine of Mother Emanuel.

The Gospel Coalition

It didn’t take long for those that turn everything into a political issue to come out of the woodworks, even after a shooting at a prominent, historical church in the South. Whether it be about race, guns, or some other agenda, the talking heads are jabbering.

As Christians, though, we know all to be wicked, all to be depraved without Christ. While the young man that killed 9 people last night might have had a specific reason for doing what he did, it is sin at the heart of the matter and our need of a savior that needs to be remembered. Depravity knows no bounds.

For the members of this church and the community, the friends and family, we need to pray that the faith of those that have passed will not end there. No, they are in their eternal home, at peace today. No more tears and no more sorrow. But their family will mourn, and rightfully so. Pray that these men and women and their faith will carry on.

These 9, 3 men and 6 women, need to be remembered. Pray for Charleston. Pray that the hearts of Man are turned from wickedness to the light.
