  • “You talk about the Bible all the time. What are some good reasons why I should actually read it?”

    The a priori supposition of this column is that the Bible has something to say that is of value to your life. Though we cannot, in the brief space allowed here, do justice to the arguments for the veracity and validity of Scripture, we may certainly identify a few of the important reasons why you should read it!
    First, you will gain a clearer understanding about a book that has played a significant role in the history of western civilization. You cannot read very far in most classic literature or research the development of our culture without finding references to Scripture or the truths it proclaims.
    The book explores the big questions: “Who am I? What is my purpose? Where am I going?” There are other books that purport to reveal your life’s purpose. This one, however, has been around the longest and proven its staying power and reliability.
    Fundamentally, the Bible introduces you to God. It attributes a name, personal character and volition to the spirit you’ve always suspected was there somewhere. Along the way, you will begin to discover your story in God’s big story.

  • With the diversity of bird species and the number of birders in Los Alamos, it’s easy to wonder why the Christmas Bird Count, the longest-running citizen science project nationwide, has yet to come to Los Alamos. A group of local birders have decided that it is time to change that, and they intend to submit an application to the National Audubon Society.
    As part of the application, in order to demonstrate sufficient interest and logistical support, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center will sponsor a “mock” Christmas Bird Count from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. March 8. Community members are encouraged to take part as much as they would like, from going out as part of a bird-counting team, to counting birds in their own backyard.
    The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) has a long and interesting history. In the 1800s, many in North America participated in a common holiday tradition of going out on Christmas day and competing to kill as many birds as possible. At the turn of the 20th century, American ornithologist Frank Chapman suggested that perhaps it would be better to simply count the birds rather than shoot them. Chapman enlisted the help of 26 like-minded bird enthusiasts and in December of 1900, held the first annual CBC.
