Anyone going to the Noah movie this weekend? AdventureStar built the ark (hmm, now I want to burst in to a chorus of Rise and Shine).

Creation of Adam

Nathan Sawaya made this detail from Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, illustrating Genesis 2:7. The original, of course, is on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Sorry for the long blogging hiatus. I do want to get back into things, and will soon, but I wanted to do a quick post on St. Patrick's Day. Like a great number of holidays (holy days), this too has a religious origin that has been largely lost in current celebrations. Patrick is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Two stories about him have him miraculously driving the snakes from Ireland (depicted here by Histo-Sci) and using a shamrock to teach people about the Trinity (here by David FNJ).
