So I'm into week 5 of my ecumenics course (peace building through religious and societal change) at Trinity College Dublin and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. All of the lectures so far have been fascinating, and I'm revelling in the guided reading I'm being asked to do.

My favourite module so far is Nature, Grace and the Triune God, but I'm also fascinated in the Gender, War and Peace module.

""""Conrad made Wiig’s character a neutrino physicist. She decided the bad guy would probably be into string theory. There’s just something sinister about the theory’s famous lack of verifiable predictions, Winslow says."""

A short bit about the two MIT physicists who were science advisors for the new Ghostbusters movie. They were the ones who decided Wiig's character should be a neutrino physicist – and that the villain should be a string theorist. Apparently there's something just plain sinister about it.

Bwahahahaha!

[Full disclosure: I have not yet seen the movie, and so have no idea of just how sinister the string theorist is. But given that the quantum gravity guy in Event Horizon turned out to be Satan, I'm going to guess that some pretty serious cackling is in order.]

[Full disclosure, part 2: I used to be, in fact, a string theorist.]
