    Very interesting little fact that comes up here. Jeff is citing the “received text” which indeed has “one blood” in Acts 17:26. My Greek computer Bible just has “one” (masculine pronoun) with no word “blood”. It is the Nestle-Aland version which I believe is called the “majority text”. The latter is taken as more trustworthy since it uses many sources instead of just one, as the received text does (which is the basis of the King James). So basically, if you hold to the King James, Jeff’s point may be valid, though I would still like to hear from a Greek scholar about the usage here.

    Sorry, but this strikes me as like those people who every year talk of how several planets coming together in a conjunction are the Star that moved around and hovered over the house in Bethlehem. The filling of the Black Sea (or the Mediterranean) should not be reported as confirmation of a global Flood, which is what people will assume from a story like this.

    One thing I think would be useful for people is simply a list of good books on science and faith. Here is my initial list:

    cosmology/fine tuning:

    The Anthropic Cosmological Principle, Barrow and Tipler

    The Accidental Universe, P.C.W. Davies

    The Privileged Planet, Gonzalez and Richards

    General Science/Faith

    Science and Faith, Collins

    The Soul of Science, Pearcey and Thaxton

    Evolution and Design

    The Hidden Face of God, Schroeder

    Signature in the Cell, Meyer

    Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, Denton

    No Free Lunch, Dembski

    Darwin’s God, C.G. Hunter

    Mind and Consciousness

    Lost in the Cosmos, Walker Percy

    Goedel, Escher, Bach, Hofstadter

    Shadows of the Mind, Penrose

    Brains, Machines, and Persons, Mackay

    This is my first list of what I would call the first reading list a person should know. Some people might want to add books by Polkinghorne and Hugh Ross to the list. I haven’t included any on Bible interpretation or archeaology yet.
