My 2014 Person of the Year

On last month’s Christmas special edition of The World Over Live, EWTN news director Raymond Arroyo offered his pick for 2014 Person of the Year: the persecuted Christians of the Middle East. I felt that this was a good choice because it highlighted the increasingly desperate situation of the ancient Christian communities in Iraq, Syria, […]

Obama’s Paris No Show Reveals a Two-part Message

obmglfLinking arm-in-arm and marching for a cause is EXACTLY what a community organizer does. To protest for a just cause and show solidarity with a aggrieved population against the unjust acts of a violent and tyrannical group is something that an self-avowed activist like Barack Obama would […]

Muslims and the Left’s Death by Tolerance

Charlie Hebdo Attack SuspectsAside from the three Muslim men who perpetrated the deadliest terror attack in France since 1961, there are some other individuals complicit in the Wednesday massacre. They have names such as Hollande, Merkel, Löfven and Obama. Their connection to the act will largely go […]

The Deadly Paris Terror Attack and the Myth of Religion

islmtlrnt “Another attack in the name of religion,” I heard someone say after the vicious and vile Wednesday assault on the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo. And there is a huge problem with “religion.” But it’s not what you think.

Question: when the Nazis, Stalinists, Khmer […]

The Passing of my Atheist Friend

rbrtnrdlndrOn December 11th, Robert Nordlander, a household name to anyone who habitually read the opinion pages in the Appleton Post-Crescent, passed away after a lingering illness.

Nordlander was also once a columnist in a publication that I currently write a monthly column for and, some years ago […]

Anti-Christian Activist: God Raped Mary

vlrtlrcOne of the secular left’s latest windmills at which to tilt is America’s fanciful “rape culture.” There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another […]

The Bad Christian and the Good Secularist

dntht“If not for my faith, I would be barely human.” That was the answer English writer Evelyn Waugh gave when asked, as all Christians will be at some point, how he could call himself a Christian given his behavior. Often rhetorical, the question is sometimes a ploy […]

Science and Faith

csmsScience is the process of determining the behavior of matter (the universe) using observation, testing (controlled observation), and reason; with reason defined as the ability to observe, comprehend and accept self-evident truth.

[Reason is] “the discovery of the certainty or probability of such propositions or truths, […]

What’s the Difference Between a Gunman and a Terrorist?

Michael Zehaf-BibeauCompare the following reports – the first from the Ottawa Sun describing the recent terrorist attack in Ottawa and the second from the Jerusalem Post detailing the also recent terrorist attack in Jerusalem:

Two people are dead after at least one gunman stormed Parliament Hill on […]

You WILL Live Forever

trbltn“The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”

– 1 John 2:17

It’s getting ugly out there.

Indeed, the world is dying. Not in a false-alarmist, “OMG-global-warming-is-going-to-kill-us-all!” sort of way. Rather, this world is passing […]

When Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles

islmpblcsclsThere was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, […]

The Atheist Crusade Against a Conservative Christian History Professor

Recently I received an email, the subject line of which provocatively suggested that atheists were on the “warpath” against a university professor. Intrigued, I clicked on the email and opened up the linked article. I have to admit that I was less interested in the story than I was in identifying this conservative professor and […]

It’s Official: The Democrats are the Party of the Devil

dcrtsstnPerhaps the first clue, or the ten thousandth, was when many Democrats opposed the reinsertion of God into their party’s platform in 2012 and booed the judgment that the measure to do so had passed. But now it’s official:

The Democrats are the party of the Devil.

ElectionWatch 2014: We Did It!

Defying widespread expectations of a close election contest, the Congressional and gubernatorial elections of 2014 resulted in a landslide victory for the Republican Party and were a major step forward for the Tea Party movement in its quest to take over Washington politics. As of this writing, Republicans had picked up an additional seven seats […]

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 […]

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.

Freedom of Religion is Not a Suicide Pact

My worthy colleague George Handlery recently wrote a piece on how the enemies of freedom are using our constitutional protections and similar freedoms in other nations as a leverage to take over those governments and societies. Mr. Haldlery’s analysis is correct, raising the question of when one may restrict freedoms in the name of preserving […]

The Magical Land of Progressitopia

dtrt2There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much […]

Will the Tea Party Lose Again?

With growing disapproval of the Obama administration’s leadership and the increasing popularity of the Tea Party movement within Republican ranks, many observers—myself included—are hopeful and even quite confident that the underdog GOP may make a strong comeback in the upcoming November elections, regaining control of the Senate, further expanding its strength in the House, and […]
