We’re having our annual March for Life this weekend here in Birmingham (national March for Life is next weekend). I’ve been getting ready for it, ordered a sign to carry and a shirt to wear that may get here in time. If not, I’ve got others. I bought a Catholic Warrior, Defending the Faith t-shirt and a 100% Catholic t-shirt yesterday up at the EWTN gift shop. Bought a bunch of pro-life bookmarks and some signs a while back from Heritage House. My Saul Alinsky review is still in the works. I left my book bag at home today or I’d post something on it now. But I don’t want to work from memory. Suffice it to say that I’ve added more books to the reading list since the last time I posted. Added more history books and several books on evolution and atheism, including titles by Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) and Darwin (a hardback volume entitled Evolutionary Writings, containing the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.) Funny, isn’t it, how most editions these days neglect to print the full title: Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of the Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. And I finally got a copy of Stephen Meyer’s Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design.Continue reading “Ready to March for Life, more reviews in the works”

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 “Biology goes bang, as in, Big Bang”
Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed, review on the way
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).
Intelligent discussions on evolution and intelligent design
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 “Intelligent discussions on evolution and intelligent design”
