American Dreams – Marco Rubio Gets it – Almost

American Dreams

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 […]

Prisoners of Fear

The Train to Crystal CityIt’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 […]

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

Doc Savage’s Civil War! Are you in or Are you Out!

Stop the Coming Civil War - SavageI 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 […]

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 […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day Two – Expansion

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 […]

Perspectives on the Scriptures: Genesis Day One – Inflationary Cosmology

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 […]

Civilian Warriors – The Blackwater Story

Ever since America’s involvement in Iraq and the war on terrorism began, one name has been central to the controversies connected with that involvement. That name is Blackwater.

A ‘Final Theory’ of God - An Overview: Part II

ImagebookA ‘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 […]

A ‘Final Theory’ of God - An Overview: Part I

ImagebookBy 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.

Oscillating Between Rage and Resignation: A Review of David Horowitz’ Book, ‘Take No Prisoners’

In David Horowitz’ new book, Take No Prisoners, there is a surfeit of rage and an undercurrent of resignation. Horowitz was a red diaper baby and one of the leaders of the radical left movement five decades ago. But he saw the light and remade himself into a bedrock conservative, which stance he has maintained […]

Billionaire Peter Thiel: “We Don’t Live In A Normal World; We Live Under A Power Law.”

Peter ThielWhen George Gilder, arguably the smartest man in the world, says, as he said to me over dinner recently in Washington, DC, that Peter Thiel is the smartest man in the world… pay attention.

Fortune calls Thiel “perhaps America’s leading public intellectual today.” (Not all agree […]

How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life

Pulling the Trigger on Impeachment
