taxonomy

The Greek word taxis from which we get taxonomy, 
has no relationship to the Latin word we use for a hired cab, taxi. 
The word taxi is a shortened word for taxicab 
which itself is a shortened form of the word taximeter cab 
which itself is short for taximeter cabriolet. 
A cabriolet was a two-wheeled, horse drawn carriage 
with a hood that came over to protect the passengers. 
The taximeter part was introduced around 1900 as a mechanical device 
to measure the amount owed to the driver of the cabriolet. 
It was a metered tax on the cab...a taximeter cab...a taxicab...a taxi.

On October 31st, 
498 years ago, 
the Protestant Reformation began returning us
 to God's Word as the final authority in
 all matters of faith and practice. 
Now THAT'S something to celebrate!

what next?





General Science is our next planned DVD! 
What subject do you think Wes should do after that?

Here is a question that has come across our desk a few times:
 “Exactly what are your credentials for making these science films?”

Here is the short answer: I find and hire technical experts in the field, submit the script and films to them then make all the changes until they are satisfied that the content is scientifically accurate.

Here is the long answer:My expertise is in film making and in taking complex information and making it interesting and understandable. Unfortunately, most technical experts in the field don’t have those skills and those with the skills aren’t technical experts. As one song writer said, “Those who know don't have the words to tell and the ones with the words don't know too well.” My job then, is to research these difficult areas, write scripts and screenplays then submit the film and script to technical experts to ensure the data is scientifically accurate. And finding experts who are willing to work on a project like this for 18 months is not always easy.
We worked with biologists from the Institute for Creation Research for the biology film. We worked with a chemist who taught both high school and university chemistry and who is the author of several very popular text books on chemistry and organic chemistry. Finally we had two PhD physicists work on the physics film, one of whom is the department chairman for the physics department at an Eastern University and the other has her doctorate in mathematical physics. All of these scientists worked painstakingly close to Westfield Studios for months to vet every frame and word in the films. This is one of the more exacting and difficult parts of producing these films, but we want to be sure we have got the science right before releasing it to the public.
