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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
Before dealing with Day Two, we should just remind ourselves of the methodology employed by Genesis to describe the events in Day One.
We started with “the heaven and the earth”, which were then subsequently described collectively as “the waters”. The “waters” were then ‘converted’ into “light” when matter and antimatter interacted to create photons […]
It is a generally accepted myth that all creation stories are myths.
And it is a myth eagerly exploited by those who seek to replace the notion of God with their own doctrines and delusions.
This short series of articles will demonstrate that, irrespective of what other creation stories may reveal, in just three chapters […]
A ‘Final Theory’ of God demonstrates that philosophy, science and religion are all saying the same thing, only in different ‘tongues’. But it also shows that they are all seeking the same thing – a supreme law, and a supreme lawmaker.
Science finds a supreme law in […]
By the time I had published my second book in 2007, I had already become weary of the relentless attacks on the notion of God from certain scientists, and an ‘intellectual’ clique of atheists and humanists like Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, and the late Christopher Hitchens.
With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza I decided to re-publish this Open Letter which I wrote during one of the previous Israel/Gaza conflicts. Nothing much changes, it seems. But hopefully this time Israel will deal with the terror-mongers once and for all.
But it seems that John Kerry has either bought into the […]
To understand the compelling appeal of Dave Brat’s message in his primary campaign against Eric Cantor, we need to go back to the founding of America as a nation.
When Thomas Jefferson first saw the Constitution of the United States he was said to have been utterly dismayed. But it was not […]
The best I could say about The God Argument is that it is just another contribution to the singularly undistinguished tradition of the ‘thoroughly mediocre … utilitarian Englishmen’ who walk ‘clumsily and honorably in Bentham’s footsteps’. It also has that ‘small-soul smell’ of the ‘socialist dolts and flatheads’ in their drive for the ‘animalization of […]
