- Jeremy Puma at Gnostica posted a very thought-provoking piece, entitled "The Politics Of Knowing: A Challenge To Gnostics". Many of these thoughts can be carried over to non-Gnostics too, and are worthy of consideration when it comes to the formal involvement of occult orders in the political machine (a matter which I strongly object to, at least when it comes to the Golden Dawn).
- Morgan Drake Eckstein posted a short but interesting piece on his blog Gleamings from the Dawn entitled "Lineage: What we can be sure about it". The main point of interest is the quoted text (in red) at the bottom of the post, which makes a very important point that must be considered in the lineage debate.
- The Galloway Chronicles posted an amusing video of probably the best part of Richard Dawkin's day, where he reads all the nutty emails he gets. If you haven't already, check out this poem I wrote, which was inspired by Dawkins. Also check out this wacky email that Father Jordan Stratford, a Gnostic priest of the Apostolic Johannite Church, received. It seems there is no rest for the atheists and religious alike.
- MythMath at Abrahadabra.com posted an amazing image of the planets in the solar system to scale. It is a little mind-blowing to see the speck that is Earth beside the giant orb of the Sun.
