The Religious Literature by a Messianic Jewish Biochemist Left on My Doorstep This Morning

I live in a largely Jewish neighborhood, and my Jewish neighbors are apparently being targeted to become Messianic Jews by something called Israel Restoration Ministries.

Here’s the Video I Mentioned During our FTB Podcast

I just participated in my first FTB podcast with PZ Myers, Ashley Miller, and JT Eberhard, the main topic of which was education. PZ has the podcast up on his blog here. While we were on the subject of textbooks, I mentioned an excellent video by Bruce Wilson and Rachel Tabachnick of Talk2Action that exposes just what’s being taught …
