Brown’s Razor and economy of miracles

Recently a creation advocate, whom I will not name, refused “honorable mention” at the Creation Science Hall of Fame. He gave this reason for so acting: God, he says, never uses “natural processes” to do the great things He does. This applies as much to the Global Flood (Genesis chh. 6-8) as to Creation itself (Genesis 1:1-2:4a). Everything in either event, must be a miracle. This makes it as good a time as any to discuss, and propose, a statement on economy of miracles. I call it Brown’s Razor, after Walter T. Brown, originator of the Hydroplate Theory of the Global Flood. In fact, Brown and I have discussed economy of miracles often, in conversation and correspondence.

Trans-Neptunian objects: just how heavy?

The recent (understandable!) interest in the object Ultima Thule (2014-MU69) reminds us of a puzzle about the outer Solar system. Specifically: just how heavy are all the Trans-Neptunian Objects, if you combine them? That question has direct relevance to the most comprehensive creation theory, the Hydroplate Theory of Walter T. Brown. Someone, about a year ago, cited two articles that separately allege that all the Trans-Neptunian Objects is at least a tenth as heavy as the Earth itself. In fact, the authors assert that all the TNOs might be half as heavy as the Earth! So before the origins debate bogs itself down in any more confusion, let’s look—hard—at the sources.

Tom Perez complained of the pulpit on Sunday. Let's make it so! Tom Perez complained of the pulpit on Sunday. Let's make it so!

The pulpit on Sunday? Would that were true!

Two days ago, Tom Perez, head of the Democratic National Committee, gave the game away. Or would have, if conditions he identified actually existed. He complained about voters under the influence of “the pulpit on Sunday.”

The good news is that Tom Perez has at last put the ethical position of the Democratic Party on record. The bad news is that the “influence” of the pulpit on Sunday is not nearly as powerful as he fears.

Blake's Image of Creation and creationism should be a warning to fools who deny God and His creation narrative. Or those who presume to judge God with theological questions about which they know little themselves. Some dire predictions are also possible today.

Toward a Restoration of the Creation Narrative

Calamitous consequences of universal significance have resulted from mistaken opinions about the creation narrative in the Book of Genesis. Indeed, the survival of America, the guardian of freedom, depends on whether we can assimilate that narrative to contemporary scientific knowledge of the universe.

Theological riddles for creationists—and their answers

On 24 June 2015, one Tyler Francke posted “Ten theological questions no young-earth creationist can answer.” In his own comment space, several young-earth creationists did answer them. He rejected their answers, per his own arbitrary criteria. Now your editor will answer them. But he will not publish these answers in his comment space. If he wants to follow the ping and register as a user to comment in this comment space, let him. (Subject always to common rules of etiquette.)
