"Being unable to cure death, wretchedness, and ignorance men have decided, in order to be happy, not to think about such things."

Activewin has posted a good review of Microsoft's newest operating system, Windows 7. It will be released to the general public tomorrow and will be available for order on new PCs. In a nutshell, it's style meets substance. Amazon's UK store says it's the biggest pre-order product of all time.

In less exciting news, Adobe has also updated their ever popular reader.
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it." (Matthew 7:13)
I came across this story on Between Two Worlds earlier this morning. Mohler and the Irish Calvanist also weigh in. Francis Beckwith sums it up nicely with this comment, "According to USA Today, it’s okay to be religious as long as you don’t act as if it your beliefs are true. So, at the end of the day, unless Christians treat their own beliefs as secularists suggest, then they ought to remain silent, sit on the back of the secular bus, and speak only when spoken to. Why does tolerance seem so totalitarian? Answer: because it is."
This USA Today editorial is par for the course today: The only absolute in matters concerning faith is that there should be no absolutes. God is Narrow-minded... by secularist standards. But then again, they don't get the difference between being narrow-minded and having narrow-beliefs. Erik on the Irish Calvanist explains the difference:
"There is a big difference between having narrow beliefs and being narrow minded.To hold a narrow set of beliefs would indicate that you do not agree with everyone else; it refers to your worldview or doctrine. To be narrow minded means that you will not listen to anyone else; this refers to your personal character. Too often folks aim to attack the narrow belief set of Christians but the charge is actually leveled at their personal character."
Amen to that.
In effect, this is simply another example of poor reasoning from secularists, nothing new here...
