The Kingdom of God

Much has been written about the Kingdom of God, ranging from ridicule to the ‘Hollywood spectacular’ of chariots and trumpets.

I can’t claim to be familiar with all interpretations and criticisms, but I am unconvinced by those I have encountered. And the reason is simple – I can’t find much Scriptural support for them.

Who is really responsible for the massacre in Tunisia?

Last week the first inquests opened into the deaths of the British citizens killed in the Tunisian massacre.

On Friday, a minute’s silence was held across the UK during which British Prime Minister, David Cameron, bowed his head in a display of pious indignation. Cameron has declared a “generational struggle” against the likes of those […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part X): The Power of Insight

This article addresses a crucial element in the case to prove the existence of God, but not the final element.

It considers the phenomena of scientific knowledge, philosophical understanding, and religious revelation, or prophecy, and shows that they are all saying the same thing, only in different ‘tongues’. They all recognize and rely on the […]

A video presentation of A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part II): Science in Genesis – Day One

The account of Day One in Genesis gives two fundamental principles essential for an ordered universe capable of sustaining life.

The first is the basis of mathematics – the equation.

Genesis demonstrates how one substance can be converted into another substance without losing its value. The original matter and space, “the heaven and the earth” […]

Joseph BH McMillan reviews A Study of Perceptions of Evil as They Arise from Epistemologies and Worldviews by Professor Ron Galloway

I have written that philosophy is at risk of rendering itself an extravagant academic indulgence. By that I mean it risks becoming so obscure as to be of no relevance to our everyday actions and behavior.

On the philosophy of science, the physicist Steven Weinberg went so far as to say this: “… I found […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part IX): Science in Genesis Chapter 3 – Adam and Eve

The story of Adam and Eve directly challenges the current conviction that reason is an infallible mechanism for the advancement of civilization.

But before we get to that, the first question to address is whether the story of Adam and Eve refers to two particular individuals, or is a generic reference to the first of […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part VIII): Science in Genesis Chapter 2 – The Garden of Eden

Early man was like a house wired for light, but for a long time was in darkness; then a switch was thrown, and the house was full of light.

Humans became conscious beings; conscious of their own existence, their own mortality, and their own actions.

That sums up Chapter 2 of Genesis, which goes back […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part VII): Science in Genesis – Day Six.

Day Six is an account of the ‘programming’ of human DNA to form the neurological structures in the brain that give us the ability to distinguish between right and wrong.

It explains why the human brain has three distinct faculties – morality, reason and instinct. The interaction between these neurological faculties is what accounts for […]

A Question of Faith?

Faith is a central pillar of most religions. But what does it really mean?

There are those who argue that faith is not a function of evidence or proof. For want of a better description, we could call this ‘blind faith’. There are proponents of this kind of faith in most religions.

‘Blind faith’ is […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part VI): Science in Genesis – Day Five.

Day Five introduces instinct and reason to the universe, and thus establishes the basis for what will become evil, or sin, and eventually the entire concept of crime.

On a reading of Day Five, that may seem like a rather peculiar conclusion to draw, but I would urge the reader to bear with me. It […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part V): Science in Genesis – Day Four

Day Four of Genesis gives us the second fundamental principle of morality, the principle that is the foundation of justice – equality under the law.

Day Four begins by confirming that the process of transforming the quantum universe into the Classical universe was complete. And according to Genesis, central to the process was the observation […]

How Government has become an Instrument to Legalize Sin

Now there are those who will scoff at the very mention of the word sin. But scoffing at sin is the same thing as scoffing at crime.

That is because crime is simply a human interpretation of sin. Crime has its origin in sin.

Judicial systems are an expression of our subconscious knowledge of right […]

UPDATE to A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part IV): Science in Genesis – Day Three

I had barely submitted this article for publication when I was made aware of an article that claims researchers at MIT had proved that atoms naturally produce life.

The article claims that the “new theory … proposes that when a group of atoms is exposed for a long time to a source of energy, it […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part IV): Science in Genesis – Day Three

By the end of Day Two, the material in the universe had not changed from the beginning of Day Two. The universe was still composed of hydrogen, helium and traces of beryllium and lithium. And there were photons of light.

The only thing that had changed was the concentration of the material in certain places […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part III): Science in Genesis – Day Two

The key to understanding the account of Day Two in Genesis is the word in verse 6 that has been translated as “the firmament.”

Again, for ease of reference, here is the full account of Day Two. References are to the King James Version.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God (Part II): Science in Genesis – Day One

We should be clear at the outset what we will be doing in this analysis.

We will not simply be substituting God for those things science cannot yet explain, although it is remarkable that Genesis does in fact make reference to the intervention of God at precisely those moments.

Neither will we claim that only […]

A Legal Proof for the Existence of God

This series of articles will show that the evidence for the existence of God is overwhelming. In legal terms, the evidence proves the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt. They will also show how God chose to reveal Himself to us, and how that enables us to know His Law and His […]

Interview about A ‘Final Theory’ of God with Ed Berliner – Midpoint, Newsmax

I wA Final Theory of Godas delighted to have the opportunity to discuss some of the issues raised in my latest book, A ‘Final Theory’ of God, with Ed Berliner on his Midpoint show on Newsmax. After a brief outline of the arguments presented in the book, […]

Perhaps there is hope for Humanity’s moral destiny after all!

A Final Theory of GodIn my latest book, “A ‘Final Theory’ of God”, I made these comments in the final chapter regarding my purpose for the book:

“The task of A ‘Final Theory’ of God is to awaken the human spirit to its true moral purpose, and […]

Islam shows “itself to be in all points unoriginal and Decadent” – Albert Schweitzer

In his excellent book Civilization and Ethics, a penetrating analysis of the various religions and philosophies of the world, Schweitzer says this: “In contrast to these monistic-pantheistic world-views, we find a dualistic outlook on life in the religion of Zarathustra (sixth century B.C. onwards), in that of the Jewish prophets (from the eighth century B.C. […]

Why Islam must be Subjected to Scrutiny and Criticism – A Response to Mehdi Hasan of the Huffington Post UK

Given the volume of condemnation following the massacres in Paris I had decided against making any comment other than short condolences on Twitter and Facebook in which I quoted Winston Churchill: “This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day Six – ‘Programming’ Human DNA: Morality, Reason and Instinct

What we saw in Day Five was the start of the re-establishment of the principles of quantum physics which had been subsumed into the Classical laws in the previous Days.

That statement may require some clarification.

We should recall that the first three Days of Genesis explained how the laws of quantum physics “morphed” into […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day Five – ‘Programming’ of Animal Life: Reason in the service of Instinct.

Day Five starts with these words:

“And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”[Genesis 1: 20]

The first thing we should consider here is what is meant by “the waters”.

Although Day Four clearly […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day Four – The Earth, Sun and Moon

Day Four of the Genesis account of the origins of the universe deals with the creation of our solar system.

Day Four thus starts with this:

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day Three – The Elements; the building blocks of life

The first part of Day Three is short, and to the point.

“And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.”

“And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters he called Seas: And […]
