Ebola, CDC, and confusion

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seem unable to make up their minds how a patient harboring Ebola can give it to someone else. Have they confused themselves beyond repair? More »

Answering Pope Francis

Pope Francis kept alive the main tradition of the Roman Catholic Church: compromise. Specifically he offered the familiar compromise between creation and evolution. But what he said will likely please no one. More »

Time to save America

A good argument can be made that America has been on a downward slide since the middle of the 20th century. Thanks to people like Lyndon B. Johnson, who robbed churches of More »

Precambrian late embryos?

A Chinese-American team may have discovered, if not a “Precambrian rabbit,” the next best thing: Precambrian embryonic fossils showing the kind of development only multicellular organisms show. The team leaders do not know whether they found an early plant or animal. But their find, if it holds, threatens to shake the foundations of biological evolution.

Eric Holder Resigns

Print Friendly

Eric Holder, Obama’s attack-dog Attorney General, resigned today. Everyone knows this by now. He decided it suddenly and with about six hours’ warning. But he did not say why he resigned. He has four possible reasons for resigning. All have to do with his hostility to the Constitution. They also reflect his desire, that Obama shares, to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America.

The Federal gun law of 1994 is about to expire.  This law made it illegal to manufacture or own a semi-automatic weapon that would let the user handle and fire the weapon skilfully.  It limited the magazine capacity for these weapons while not limiting how many magazines one could own.

King Saul didn’t listen!

King Saul died here, and at an Amalekite's hand.

The Old Testament is filled with instructions from God that modern day philosophers find puzzling. This is symptomatic of man thinking that God and His ways have to make sense to our small and limited brains, when in fact God tells us that His ways are not our ways (Isa. 55:8). We often fail to understand that God sees all of history laid out before Him, while we only see a small slice of it during our lifetimes. So, when man decides to do what is right in his own eyes and not in God’s, at some point he usually finds himself in a maze of problems that could have been avoided had he only listened.

Lois Lerner not sorry?

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

This morning, Politico released their “exclusive” with Lois Lerner. (See also these secondary reports at The Daily Caller and from UPI.) She once served as Director for Tax-exempt Organizations at the IRS. While so serving she selectively applied the law. Tax collectors have done this since the first kings and emperors formed the first tax agencies. And she puffs herself up with pride for this.

This critique of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s Silk Road exhibit continues with further distortions of history. This includes how Arabic numbers got their name, though they were not Arabic originally.

Creation ex nihilo – intro

Blake's Image of Creation should be a warning to fools who deny God
Print Friendly

Since Darwin first wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured (sic) Races in the Struggle for Life (which title was shortened in the 1872 second edition to “The Origin of Species”), the hypothesis of Evolution has had an impact on the educated world. By strongly suggesting that the biblical account of Creation is nothing more than a myth for the uneducated and weak-minded, Evolution has indirectly served as the subliminal evangelist for atheism and agnosticism.

Navigation is one of the most important of the technologies  of the Silk Road. It is what made parts of the Silk Road passable. Muslims try to claim credit for that, too. And some of the claims are patently absurd.
