When I think of the 2010 season for the Ravens, the special moment was Joe Flacco's comeback in Pittsburgh. If Flacco develops into an elite quarterback, I will look back at the last minute of this game as his first defining moment. Sure, Flacco has won playoff games. He has thrown big touchdown passes in the past. But this was the time he put the Ravens on his back and led them to victory on their chief rivals' home turf. It didn't matter that there were only 68 seconds left and no timeouts.

The night after The Shield had arguably their biggest win as a group, the long-awaited breakup finally happened as Seth Rollins turned on them and joined Evolution. Earlier in the night, Triple H came out and said Evolution's fight against The Shield wasn't over. Batista took exception to this, as he wanted to move on. Rather than continue on with Evolution, Batista announced that he quit, and walked out (this is being done to allow Batista time to promote Guardians of the Galaxy)

Richard Weikart is correct that Dr. Ben Carson should not be opposed as a commencement speaker at Emory University, as Dr. Carson's accomplishments provide ample justification for this honor ("Evolution and morality," May 13). Mr. Weikart, however, is very wrong to suggest that Dr. Carson might be justified in opposing evolution on the grounds that it threatens morality. There are three ways that evolution might be said to threaten morality, none of which are persuasive. First, one might argue that the idea of "survival of the fittest" can be used to justify eugenics.

Over the years, we've seen many "passing the torch" moments in pro wrestling. On Sunday night, we added another to the list when The Shield convincingly beat Evolution. If you read my prediction column, you saw that I had predicted Evolution , though I did say there were a few ways I could see The Shield winning. I thought maybe somehow Roman Reigns could end up with the final pin, or even take out multiple members of Evolution single-handedly. One thing I didn't expect were all three members to be still standing at the end, and for them to have completely dominated the last five minutes of what was a pretty strong match with some great spots in it. While I wouldn't use the term "squash," as it was a long match that did feature Evolution absolutely destroying the Shield members at times, it was a dominant finish that left no doubt as to who the superior team was. Now, I'm not going to say this was Warrior beating Hogan, or Austin beating Shawn Michaels.

In his column against gay marriage,Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.once again demonstrates why he is not the true heir and successor to Ron Smith ("Drawing a line at same-sex marriage," April 15). Mr. Smith and his keen intellect pursued truth whether it agreed with his prior beliefs or not while Mr. Ehrlich has shown again that he couches partisan viewpoints in intellectual language to disguise the truth. There is, indeed, a likely coalition against the gay marriage act. Leaders in my own faith, the Catholic Church, are drumming up a bandwagon to get signatures for referendum against the act. I won't be signing it. Opponents all blindly and stubbornly ignore the fact that we are at this point recognizing the validity of gay marriage not in spite of Christian beliefs, but because of them.

Evolution Brewing Craft Company will move to Maryland from Delaware next February, the company has confirmed. The move is a coup for the Maryland craft industry. Since it opened in April 2009, Evolution has become one of Delaware's major microbreweries. Over 4,500 barrels of beer are expected to be brewed this year, according to the company.  Along with five new microbreweries that have opened or will open by next year in Maryland, Evolution's move brings the total of craft breweries in the state to at least 20, according to the Brewers Association of Maryland.

Almost 500 Emory University faculty and students have expressed their dismay that their commencement speaker on Monday does not toe the ideological line when it comes to evolutionary biology. Yes - gasp - the renowned Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson does not believe in evolutionary theory. Not only that, but biology professors at Emory and their supporters also accuse Dr. Carson of committing a thought crime because he allegedly "equates acceptance of evolution with a lack of ethics and morality.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how a honeymoon and his father's death had created a speed bump for Daniel Bryan's title reign. On Monday, he announced an even bigger problem: he has to undergo surgery. Bryan came out to the ring looking extremely serious on Monday. He went through a speech talking about everything he's overcome to get to this point, similar to some of the other speeches he's made lately. Then he dropped the bombshell that he will have surgery on his neck on Tuesday.

After Sunday night's pay-per-view, I had speculated that maybe Evolution was going to disband, just as quickly as the group reunited. On Monday's Raw, they showed me how wrong I was. To kick off the show -- and to get Dean Ambrose back for the loss Sunday night -- Triple H put him in a 20-man battle royal for his U.S. title, which he lost. If that wasn't enough, Triple H put the group in a match against the Wyatts in the main event. The two stables had another solid match, though not quite up to par as some of their past encounters.

Every now and then the WWE has a legend return, for various reasons. Sometimes it could be to get a simple pop, or ratings. Sometimes it can make sense in a storyline. Other times, it can be to put young talent over. On Monday night, the WWE did the last of these, using Ric Flair to give a rub to The Shield, despite his previous Evolution ties. When it was announced on Twitter that Ric Flair would be coming back on Raw, it was assumed it would be part of the Evolution storyline.

The conventional political wisdom about Del. Heather Mizeur's pick of the Rev. Delman Coates as her running mate is that it shows her campaign for governor is more about making a point than winning the Democratic primary, much less the general election. But the more interesting question is not what the selection says about the Mizeur campaign than what the Mizeur campaign says about the state of Maryland politics. Reverend Coates is the pastor of the 8,000-member Mount Ennon Baptist Church in Prince George's County.

With a name as, um, loaded as Loadbang , you just know you're in for something different from the musicians who perform under that moniker. The make-up of the New York-based ensemble is unusual enough -- voice, bass clarinet, trumpet and trombone. The group has inspired an unusual repertoire to match. I only heard the first half of Loadbang's concert for valuable Evolution Contemporary Music Series at An die Musik , but that contained a full dose of intriguing, not to mention challenging, scores.

At 2 a.m. one morning in March 2010, photographer David Hobby was wandering, awestruck, around a gilded palace in Southwest Asia as the royal guest of a monarch. "I thought to myself, 'Holy crap! I'm in the sultan's palace in Oman, and no one's even around,'" recalled the Ellicott City resident, who had been invited to the small Arab state to speak about Strobist.com, his photography website and blog. "I've been pinching myself for the last six years," said the 48-year-old married father of two teens.

LIKE MANY SCHOOL districts around the country these days, Cecil County is struggling with the issue of how to teach evolution. Some county school board members wonder if a new edition of a biology textbook that discusses evolution also offers a significant enough challenge to it. The board is scheduled to decide next week whether to accept the textbook. In other districts, the fight over evolution has been much more heated, leading to lawsuits and proposals for restrictive legislation. This latest round of the evolution vs. creationism debate sounds like echoes of the Scopes monkey trial 80 years ago. Across the country, teachers are refraining from teaching evolution, even when it is included in the curriculum.

WASHINGTON -- Last fall, Pope John Paul II delivered a speech in French on evolution to the Pontifical Academy of Science.The Catholic News Service and Vatican Information Service wrote stories quoting the pope as saying that evolution is "more than a hypothesis." The implication was that the church's historic teaching that man was uniquely created by God is itself evolving toward a scientific, non-creation model.That was the spin put on the pope's remarks by the New York Times, which carried a front-page story on this "new" teaching, and by other newspapers, the wire services and this columnist.

For today's NFL offenses, three is a magic number. As quarterbacks throw more passes and point totals continue to rise, teams are keeping fullbacks and blocking tight ends on the sideline and using three wide receivers on more than half of their offensive plays. Even the Ravens, who for years ran a Stone Age offense, have embraced the evolution and last season often used a trio of wide-outs to spread the field for quarterback Joe Flacco. "I think today's game sets up well for that kind of stuff, which is playing at a high pace and letting those [wide receivers]

Alaina Grubb, 31, wanted to do something stimulating and fun with her young niece and nephew the other day, so she took them to the county library in Woodlawn. Seriously. The library. Specifically, the Arbutus woman took Hayden Grubb, 5, and her 4-year-old brother Lincoln to Storyville, an elaborate, interactive, "magical town" designed for young children from newborns to 5-year-olds. "It's great, a wonderful resource, and they love it," said Grubb, standing in the town's play kitchen watching Hayden arrange plastic pizza slices in a tray and Lincoln stack colorful dishes in a sink.
