Some Vaccines Are Made from the Remains of Aborted Babies–So What? The ‘silver lining’ argument rebutted.

Some vaccines are produced using the cell lines derived from aborted children. Isn’t vaccination making the best out of a bad situation? But what if ‘making the best out of a bad situation’ is a recipe for creating even more ‘badness?’

Apologetics Inverview Questions Part 4: Most Challenging Question and Denominations

7. You’ve been in many dialogues with nonChristians. What is the most challenging question you’ve had to answer? Intellectually, why God should have had the Israelites kill even the infants of the pagan tribes. Culturally, I understand why this would have been done. I could even see God himself performing the task. Having the Israelites […]

Apologetics Interview Questions Part 2: On Hell

3. A lot of disbelievers have a problem with a loving God sending people to an eternity of torture by way of fire. What is your take on hell? I also had a problem with that. C.S. Lewis’s “The Great Divorce” provided the imaginative framework I needed to get over the ‘hump’ on this issue. […]

What World War Two Online Can Teach Us About God, the Universe, and Ourselves

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.

Why Ken Ham should Not Debate Bill Nye

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.
