Links: September-October-November

I’ve collected quite a few interesting bits over the last few months, but haven’t had time to put them together into a post. But, here they are–enjoy.

Amazon Bookstore Blends Tech With Brick-and-Mortar Charm – NBC News. Strange to imagine…

We have lost our faith. | Targuman. A good sermon on faith and reason.

Chris Seitz on the Biblical Crisis in the Homosexuality Debates | Alastair’s Adversaria. Insight on hermeneutics and the relationship between the Testaments.

It’s Not Your Imagination, Single Women: There Literally Aren’t Enough Men Out There | VICE | United States. Interesting interview on a sociology topic, but it is at Vice, so beware the ads. Probably play it safe and don’t click on this at work.

‘Do it for Mom’ campaign wants Danes to have even more sex – The Washington Post. Having recently visited Copenhagen for all of five hours, I can tell you what would make Danes have more kids: lower taxes so that people can afford to buy cars rather than bicycles. Imagine trying to have more than two kids in a cold, rainy country if your primary means of transportation was a two-child cart with pedals!

The Case for Open Borders | TIME. The second-most important human-rights issue of our day. (Abortion is the other.)

A Biblical Theology of Suffering | Targuman. More heartfelt brilliance from Chris Brady at Penn State.

University fees: The impossible trinity of higher education | Johan Fourie’s blog. Insight into South Africa’s education problems, from a young Stellenbosch professor (whom I’ve met in person).
