Announcing a new site, Christian Diversity, which isn’t mine but I am a contributor. We are a group of Christians from various backgrounds and traditions who have come together to cordially present and discuss views on Christian doctrines. The site has been up for a few days and our first topic has been Original Sin. Why not begin at the beginning, huh? ;)

Darwinism seems to have a dilemma. No, it’s not a new dilemma. It’s one that Darwin himself noticed but decided that he would leave for future generations to iron out. Of course, Darwinists today have not yet ironed out this little problem. In fact, they tend to leave it out of their arguments entirely or pretend that it doesn’t matter if you have the bad manners to bring it up. What am I talking about? The Cambrian Explosion, of course, and the fossil record which evolutionists claim proves evolution. And what is the Cambrian Explosion? Continue reading

I’ve been fighting with technical problems today and working on my continuing review (of Letter to a Christian Nation. (I watched Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed and I heartily recommend it!

A very kind soul has allowed me to borrow Ben Stein’s DVD, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. I started watching it tonight and I’ll be reviewing it here soon. I’m still working on the continuing review of Sam Harris’s Letter to a Christian Nation (I’ve already posted a first review).

I’ve changed the banner on the blog yet again. It’s an obsession. I feel a need to update the look (or at least, the banner) with every change of my focus or interest, no matter how slight. The latest shift of focus is not really a shift in kind but in degree. I’ve been watching the rising tide of atheism and the accompanying tide of immoral “morality” for many years. Continue reading

Maybe it’s happened to you. Conversations with friends or acquaintances veer somehow onto the topics of creation, evolution, intelligent design, faith and various other equally innocuous notions guaranteed to heat the blood and bring tempers to the boiling point in short order. Perhaps someone you know has thrust a book by Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris in your face, telling you to “read this and get yourself free of those antiquated notions” of God and faith (and, of course, that madman Jesus), Continue reading

It was a hot, humid, stormy day as I got out of my car. I’d just arrived at my favorite coffee shop when I looked up at the sky, as I often do, so I grabbed my camera off the backseat to get the shot you see below. I take my camera with me wherever I go these days.
