There are very, very few times when I wish I had twitter. Most of them are when the students say something that really should be shared. In general, I accept that no one cares about my life that much and I don't have anything deep enough to say to make it worth it.
And then there come times when I read things that should be retweeted.
Today I read this from Dan Phillips:
We probably shouldn't speak of the *doctrine* of the virgin birth any more than we speak of the "doctrine" of the assassination of JFK
The virgin (conception and) birth of Jesus Christ is a fact of history, an event; not a doctrine
Think about it.
