Congratulations, H.I.S. Students, for a Successful Landing (of your names) on Mars!
As of August 5, 2012, some of you have your name up on the red planet! Think of that next time you look at that little red "star" (planet, actually) in the sky.
The last couple years, a number of you, during the opportunity in class, got on the NASA Science Laboratory web page and entered your name to be engraved on one of two microchips that would be sent to Mars aboard the Curiosity rover. Some of you may have done this on your own, as the webpage was open to the public. The good news, as you may know by now: The Curiosity rover landed successfully Sunday night (Mountain time) August 5, 2012! More information about the Curiosity Rover (and the microchips) can be found at this NASA webpage.
It's kind of neat to look up at the sky and point to the red planet and say, "My name is up there." But, far better, still, is to assure that your name is written in the Headquarters of the Universe, AKA Heaven. You can't do that by logging onto a website though. You can only do that by making sure that you know Jesus (the Creator of the planets, stars, galaxies, etc.) as your Savior and Lord. (See Luke 10:20). Now, what can be more cool than that?

An apology due to Native Americans
I cannot undo the events of history. But, I can apologize, and I can do what I can to make a difference. The above links to a page from my personal website regarding a matter I feel deeply about...
Mr. Logan's plan for success in class:
Eat a hearty breakfast
Drink plenty of water
Get a good night's sleep
Help and encourage each other to succeed
Use memory aids
Believe that God wants you to succeed and that He is able to help you to succeed
Read the following:
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
God bless, and have a great year!
Does natural always mean "Good for you"?
Consider just the following few points:
One bite of the destroying angel mushroom contains enough poison to kill a healthy adult!
Arsenic, sometimes found in nature, is commonly used as rat poison! Yes, it can kill you too.
Mercury, the liquid metal sometimes used inside glass thermomters, can be found in nature. Mercury vapors can make you insane.
What's the point? Saying, "But, it's natural!" is a worthless argument for putting just anything "natural" into your body. Ever hear that argument used for justifying "natural" drugs like alcohol and marijuana?
A planet, as defined by the International Astronomical Union, is a celestial body orbiting a star or stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity, is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion, and has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals.

Did Thunderbirds really exist, or are they just legendary creatures? Fascinating evidence suggests that there may be some truth to the stories, truth that doesn't fit well within the traditional evolutionary interpretation, but fits well within the Biblical framework. While there is no hard hitting proof, the evidence is certainly worth a look.
Despite the widespread acceptance of this philosophy, anthropology has yielded strong evidence in favor of the miraculous events recorded in Genesis. Nearly all people of the world, including the American Indians, have cosmological beliefs that are similar to the Genesis account.

Our family with my father-in-law at the brand new Creation Museum in Kentucky. Did dinosaurs and people really live together? Most scientists say "No!", but there is some very interesting evidence that suggests that they did from legends around the world, from artifacts, and from the Bible.
