Holmen Star Church and State Issue Coming to a Boil

This Thursday, May 8th, the Holmen village council is expected to take up the issue of the Holmen ‘Cross.’  Perched on a bluff that can be seen from a great distance is a lighted star that during Easter is lighted as a cross instead, for just about a week.  A relatively new resident decided that […]

What is Christianity? Why should we Study Atheism? Who cares how the Bible was Formed?

Beginning on April 30th, 2008, Athanatos Online Academy’s course “Studies in Atheism” will begin. This three week course will give a brief history of atheism through the centuries and then leap to a discussion of more modern atheists such as Bertrand Russell, Antony Flew, and the so-called ‘New’ atheists: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, […]

Course on the Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus: Against Naturalism

My recent blog posts discussing philosophical naturalism really show that this course is relevant.  Here is the question:  on the historical evidence alone, unfettered by the presupposition that there is a God or that there isn’t one, and unfettered with baggage that reasonable people MUST interpret everything in naturalistic terms, can it be shown (again, […]

A friend’s view on the hostility to Intelligent Design: Evolutionary theory isn’t the problem. Atheists are.

A friend of mine blogged on the reaction to Expelled. I notice he’s making many of the same points that I’ve been making and noticing some of the same insane commentary, like dismissing those who think they can detect design (uh, like realizing this post has content and isn’t just an electronic burp) as being […]

Understanding the Root Controversy of Intelligent Design

I have not yet seen Stein’s movie, Expelled, but hope to by the end of this weekend.  I’ve used this week as an opportunity to highlight various issues and I have linked to corroboration of at least some of the allegations that are made in the movie.  I would like to spend a moment addressing […]

Power to the Experts! Down with Intelligent Design! To arms, to arms!

So one of the biggest public events in the Intelligent Design debate is upon us.  Ben Stein’s Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is going to be out in theaters today.  Browsing through anti-ID commentary you get a sense of the heat this movie is taking.  It is a small taste of the heat this movie is […]

You can’t say Intelligent Design is not Science Just Because it is So Obvious

Here it is: You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video In one of my recent posts I challenged Skeptics to be skeptical of everything. […]

Highly Recommended: Peter Kreeft’s Handbook of Christian Apologetics

This isn’t a formal review by any means but I did recently complete this book and thought it was so fantastic it deserved a quick mention. The book was suggested to me in my quest for a ‘basic Christianity’ book to give to skeptics that would lay out in easy to understand but documented detail […]

Giving Skeptics Reason to be Skeptical: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. New Super Trailer.

The latest trailer is awesome in my opinion: http://www.expelledthemovie.com/playground.php (Opens in New Window.) I have had on occasion the opportunity to challenge my skeptical atheistic secular humanistic ‘free thinking’ ‘bright‘ friends to put their alleged skeptical and free thinking methods to work that is skeptical about everything, and not just ‘religious’ issues. There are many […]

How to Talk to an Atheist- if you Must: Fundies Say the Darndest Things

For the record, that title is meant to be a joke. I think it was Anne Coulter who had a title similar to that but with liberals in the title. But it is eye catching, don’t you think?  I like talking to atheists.  Usually. I once wrote a long essay on how the Church needs […]

Understanding the Atheistic Mind and the New Atheists and why they Must be Confronted

Someone sent me a link to this ‘blog’ entry titled “10 Questions Every Intelligent Christian Must Answer”. Now, I definitely don’t agree with the premise. I don’t think we are obliged to answer most of the questions, springing as they do out of sheer ignorance and contempt. What I found most telling about this entry […]
