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 […]
Most of us have probably been pretty happy about the relatively low gas prices we’ve been enjoying since late last year. Not surprisingly, however, environmentalists driving to the latest Keystone pipeline protest aren’t quite as joyful. Lower gas prices generally mean increased consumption […]
During the recent Summit on Violent Extremism held in Washington, D.C., President Barack Obama said that the U.S. battle against “violent extremism” doesn’t mean it’s a war on the Islamic world and using the words Muslim or Islamic offer the very terrorist group we are […]
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 […]
It is a historical reality that successful societies, nations and the like eventually reach a point of maturity, and then proceed to transition into something else, burn out, or become the victims of conquest. It is this premise that lies behind Richard Engle’s new book, The Last […]
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 […]
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 […]
It is amusing to say the least to read Hillary’s book Hard Choices. She must have thought she could be like Obama and write a book for blacks and get the black vote. Hillary thought she could write a book about woman and mention the words woman […]
Co-founder of the men’s movement, former enfant terrible of American philosophers, bestselling author and trapeze artist: at age 83 Sam Keen is adding another layer to his already impressive resume: written with his son Gifford, Prodigal Father Wayward Son, is the definitive roadmap to reconciliation between fathers and sons. Intellectual Conservative has an exclusive […]
James Grant, in his new book The Forgotten Depression, makes a strong case for applying a prime directive of the Hippocratic Oath — “First, do no harm” — to economic policy. We today find ourselves beset by economic stagnation, racial strife, political bitterness, infectious diseases, […]
In a dark room one must lift an oil lamp as high as possible to get the greatest use from the light. Similarly, to reason clearly one must start with a law or principle held high to illuminate one’s path in life. For […]
As a counterpunch to left-wing science fiction writer China Miéville’s list of Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels for socialists, Samuel Goldman of the American Conservative penned “10 Sci Fi and Fantasy Works Every Conservative Should Read.” As Goldman explained, “I’m not suggesting that these books express conservative views as such. […]
Several years ago I was privileged to review Senator Rubio’s first book, An American Son. It was, while tedious at times, an excellent and inspiring chronicle of an immigrant family achieving the American Dream. I came away from it liking Senator Rubio a lot, but […]
It’s not new to note that some of the greatest misery to occur during war is generally visited upon civilians. Those caught in the path of the maelstrom suffer and die much like soldiers, but with no glory. Names are lost and only […]
In 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 […]
A review of America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder by Bret Stephens
Bret Stephens is certainly not the first journalist to note that America seems to be in decline. Some who have made this observation couch their analysis in […]
I enjoy reading the Savage books. He has written a bunch. It is a bit more concise than listening to his radio broadcasts. He writes about the coming civil war and how it can be avoided by voting for Republicans. The […]
Rush Revere and the American Revolution is part three in a trilogy written by Rush Limbaugh and his lovely wife Kathryn. And Rush is tickled pink that his books are being read by so many young and old. And clearly the purpose […]
Recently there have been a number of books published on America’s role in world events and what the world would be like absent such participation. Mark Steyn published After America in 2011. Earlier this year Dinesh D’Souza gave us America: Imagine a World Without […]
Frans Jager presents the views of a first generation immigrant on American Exceptionalism.
We are constantly being reminded, “America is a nation of immigrants.” This is true, in a much as everyone who lives here today, except for the descendants of […]
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 […]
