Found this at a blog I read. The blogger is giving a brief review of Tim Keller’s book The Reason for God: Keller responds to the ubiquitous atheist chorus: “If a good and powerful God exists, he would not allow pointless evil, but because there is much unjustifiable, pointless evil in the world, the traditional… Continue reading Tim Keller on Atheism and Evil
Friends, Here’s a funny story from the Christian Post: “No God” Ads to Hit London Buses. I guess Dick and his friends at the British Humanist Association are raising money (or have already and continue to do so) in order to put advertisements on city buses. Says the article: The slogan is the brainchild of… Continue reading Richard Dawkins is Probably not an Atheist
Friends, I am providing a link to the website of Ravi Zacharias and an essay called The New Atheism and Morality. Among the arguments espoused by atheists is one that suggests ‘morality is possible quite apart from the reality of God.’ In other words, atheists claim that their morality, moral as it no doubt is,… Continue reading The New Atheism and Morality
Friends, A quick post tonight. This is Ravi Zacharias speaking about Jesus. The video is somewhat iffy, but the audio is great. In this second clip, Ravi Zacharias speaks about How we know There is a God. Soli Deo Gloria!
Friends, I got to thinking about this last night. I was driving around town with my wife and son. We were on our way to scout a couple of houses that are on the market. We drove past a business that is noted for its habit of posting Scripture verses on its sign. Last night… Continue reading Unless You See
Friends, Last evening’s post had something to do with atheism and whether or not God exists. (Actually, the essay and my comments concerning the essay were not about whether or not God exists, but you’ll have to read the essay by Tingley to discern that. Anyhow, here is a youtube video featuring Ravi Zacharias. I… Continue reading Ravi Zacharias on Atheism: Discerning Good and Evil
Friends, The latest issue of Touchstone journal has a great essay by Edward Tingley titled The Skeptical Inquirer. You can access the full essay here. The gist of the essay is that atheists and agnostics do not go far enough along in their journey to truly conclude that God or gods does or do not… Continue reading Climbing Mount Improbable: Atheists Give up Too Easily!!
Friends, I just want you to know that I have arrived! After 13 months of blogging here at wordpress my moment is finally here: I have been linked at Wikipedia! That’s right, Wikipedia! I wrote this post about an Iranian film that is a sort of ‘response’ to Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ… Continue reading Hitting the Big Time. *Sniff* “I’d Like to Thank…” *Sniff*
Friends, I have had this sneaking suspicion for a while that Atheists really don’t have a problem with ‘God’ as much as they do with Christians or Christianity. I don’t know too much about Ray Comfort except that I think he is a big fan of Kirk ‘Buck’ Cameron, but he issued an interesting challenge… Continue reading Atheists and Muslims and Christians
Friends, I have posted many thoughts about evolution and its impact on the general population of the world. I’d like to share someone else’s thoughts tonight. These thoughts concern how replacing the Creator with evolution has destroyed our understanding of sin. Consider: The basic reason why our modern Western culture has lost the concept of… Continue reading Creation and Sin and Atheism
Friends, I have two things to say about this story at the Christian Post: Borders Tags Atheist Book With… First, I think some people are way, way to sensitive. Consider these two well-meaning, but theologically under-read people: “I am quite sure that Borders intended their Christmas card as a joke. However, I personally find it… Continue reading Bordering on Hilarious
Friends, Here are some news bits that I found interesting this morning. First, talk about Giant Bugs! The AP is reporting that scientists have uncovered one really big bug fossil: The discovery in 390-million-year-old rocks suggests that spiders, insects, crabs and similar creatures were far larger in the past than previously thought, said Simon Braddy,… Continue reading Interesting News Bits
Friends, Families of Fallen Utah Highway Patrol Troopers Fight Atheist Group Over Roadside Cross Memorials. Don’t atheists have something better to do with their time, like, say, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless? jerry
Friends, I haven’t yet figured out this fella named Dinesh D’Souza. He seems to be all the rage nowadays among certain wings of churchianity. However, I came across this little essay he wrote and published at Townhall.com and I thought it was a rather interesting piece: Are Atheists the New Gays? Mr D’Souza spends the majority… Continue reading “Are Atheists the New Gays?” or Are Faith and Reason Incompatible?
Friends, I’m in a sort of writing kind of mood tonight so I’m going to share a little more of my list of things that tick me off (I’m smoothing out my language a little.) Here are numbers 21-35. 21. The assumption that all Christians are evil because of people like the folks at the… Continue reading 10 More Really Bad Assumptions Made by Not-Christians: 21-35
