  • “Stephen Hawking has made the statement that there is no life after death.  How might Scripture respond to his comment?” — Joe

    Hawking’s statement is nothing less than a faith statement.  
    He has faith in his opinion.  He has faith in his ability to make pronouncements with a certitude that is based on nothing more than his own internal thoughts.
    The writers of the Bible were no strangers to people who exhibited similar kinds of faith.  

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend has asked an appeals court to disqualify the Oscar winner’s attorneys handling a bitter custody dispute because she consulted with one of their partners in a paternity dispute with another actor.
    Attorneys for Oksana Grigorieva asked the California 2nd District Court of Appeal to intervene in the case on Monday. They sought to either disqualify Gibson’s attorneys or require a judge hearing the case to review records of the Russian musician’s dealings with the firm.
    Grigorieva met with a partner in the firm of Kolodny and Anteau in 2008 at Gibson’s suggestion, while she was dealing with custody issues involving her son with British actor Timothy Dalton, according to court filings.
