I was recently asked to answer some interview questions about my apologetics ministries. What follows are the questions and answers, in installments. —————- 1. Will you share your testimony? When did you begin to believe in God and why? I was raised in the faith and believed in God from my earliest memories. However, despite …
The gamers of World War Two Online can ‘unsub.’ The programmers can ‘tweak’ the physics of the game to try to address the myriad of mostly contradictory demands that their paying game base demand; but there is always a cost to these changes. There is a diminishing of the ‘joy’ of participating in the universe as more ad hoc changes are programmed in. The programmers have to make accommodations, or else they risk going hungry, or worse! their universe ceasing to exist altogether. That is the price of intransigent threats of withdrawing from the game. But God cannot be held hostage in this way.
Have you heard about this case where a man has been filing petition after petition demanding the right to marry his computer? The article cites other precedents, such as people being able to marry dolphins and cardboard cutouts of themselves. On this blog, I gave the example of the person who married a pillow–although I …
Today’s headline on the Drudge Report did not surprise me in the slightest: ABORTED BABIES INCINERATED TO HEAT HOSPITALS The article linked to is this one in the Telegraph: Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals: The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used …
Was reading Alec Baldwin’s “goodbye” this morning and saw this comment: As progressive as I’ve been in my politics, there are other things I don’t think of as liberal or progressive, just common sense. This statement concisely summarizes why progressivism, and progressives, are dangerous. They do not view a large number of their viewpoints, up …
An interesting thing has happened, so rare it might even be deemed a singularity on par with the Big Bang: There will be a debate between a young earth creationist* and an avowed evolutionist. The debate, to be held on Feb. 4th, 2013, is between Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and Bill Nye… the Science Guy. I attempted to get tickets; they were sold out within just a few minutes. This is indicative of the kind of interest there is in such an event. It is no doubt good publicity for the Creation Museum, but sitting here as a young earth creationist myself, I wish to lodge my (obviously belated) advice to Mr. Ham: cancel the debate.
Limbaugh and others are correct in detecting the eugenics thinking behind this comment but do not go far enough in their explanation. The problem is that a moment’s thought, especially amongst those with only a passing knowledge of the phrase ‘eugenics’, would recall that early 20th century eugenics had essentially embraced Darwin’s formula, “Survival of the fittest.” Given that evolution, as expressed in this maxim, was a raw scientific fact, early eugenicists saw the genetically inferior as a burden on society that needed to be eliminated. So how was Gruber being like a eugenicist if he was targeting the genetically fit?
This is a column of mine that Worldnetdaily.com published several years back. In light of recent events concerning the IRS targeting of tea party and conservative groups (and anyone else opposed to Obama’s policies), it seemed appropriate to highlight it again. I am not a theologian or an economist and have never received formal instruction …
Anyone paying attention at all knows that there has been a huge run on guns and ammo in America thanks to the efforts of the number one gun salesman in America–Barack Obama. You would be mistaken if you thought that this ‘run’ was inspired only out of concern for stricter gun laws. Many people have …
