The Presidential Race and Christianity

Posted on

I have never followed a presidential race in the USA as closely as I’m following this one. In fact, I’ve not been very much interested at all in politics till this race. I do vote, however, as I believe it is a privilege to be able to do so in our country. What I want […]

How Many Starving Could Star Wars Feed?

Posted on

Nothing against movies. No sir. But I can’t help but ask: If a church managed to coax a half billion dollars out of the public’s pockets like Star Wars did worldwide this weekend, well, do you think anyone would have anything negative to say about that? A half BILLION dollars for a few minutes of […]

The Star of Bethlehem : What It Was NOT

Posted on

This time of year, sooner or later we’ll see an article somewhere that will assure us that the “scientific” explanation for the Star of Bethlehem is that it was either a comet, a conjunction of planets (where two or more planets appear ‘close’ in the sky) or a supernova. Which means scientists really don’t know […]

YOU’RE RIGHT. GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS!

Posted on

The New York Daily News blasted Republican candidates for their responses to the massacre of 14 people in California by smearing “God Isn’t Fixing This” across its front page, along with comments from the candidates asking for “prayer” for the victims and their families. No doubt that will sell plenty of newspapers. After all, if […]

Time, and Time Again

Posted on

If you don’t believe what I said at the end of the article below this one, here’s another item for you from none other than Carl Sagan in his book The Varieties of Scientific Experience. It is a book in which Sagan seems obsessed with trying to demonstrate that God had nothing to do with […]

Ahh, the Magic of Evolution!

Posted on

I’m currently reading Cosmic Quest: Searching for Intelligent Life Among the Stars, by Margaret Poynter and Michael J. Klein (Atheneum, 1984). As many of us are aware, if it were not for the myth of Evodelusion, we would not be searching for life among the stars because it doesn’t exist apart from Evodelusionary imagination, which […]

Now Let’s Restore Pluto to Planet Status!

Posted on

Ok, there are bigger issues in the world, but for those of us who grew up with Pluto being the ninth planet (and those of us who cared), it was a tough pill to swallow when it was demoted to “dwarf planet” status, whatever that means. If it looks like a planet, moves like a […]

One Christian’s View of Gay Marriage

Posted on

I’ve already heard everything ranging from calling down hellfire to wishy-washy acceptance of the new Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, so I’d like to present what I hope is a balanced, firm response. First, I do not believe that fire and brimstone are going to rain down on America in the next few days. […]

America Fiddles While Rome Burns

Posted on

Islamic terrorists are expanding their reach around the world, and what are Americans doing? Celebrating perverted sexual unions. This nation is going to Hell on a greased sliding board. Are we so stupid as to think our end will not be the same as past nations who have sunk into cesspools of immorality?

“Live and Let Live”

Posted on

So said the banner in the headline highlighting a vote currently being decided in Ireland over whether to legalize gay marriage. I’m going to be brief. This is addressed to gays in general. If you know someone is inside a house that is burning down, you want to warn them at minimum, or help save […]
