Is God Good? (A Short Film)

Here is animated short film called, “Is God Good?”  In less than two minutes, it succinctly addresses how human freedom relates to the problem of evil (with some brilliant animated imagery). This 2-minute video is a kind of animation known as kinetic type. This genre allows the artist to get a little crazy – words […]

Dennis Prager on American Exceptionalism

With wit, passion and clarity, radio talk show host Dennis Prager unearths one of the root problems in America today– the failure of our schools and parents to teach why America is exceptional.  American exceptionalism is not elitism but the admission that certain moral values are better than others. Note: those who say that certain […]

God and Birth Defects

As recorded in John Chapter 9, Jesus saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.” Australian […]

It's the Culture Stupid

Jack Cashill makes an interesting case at the American Thinker today that the mortgage crisis and much of the faltering economy can be traced back to the breakdown of the family.  Minority families broke down (or really, never formed) at rates much greater than white families.  Since more minorities came from broken homes and thus […]

Should Tiger Woods Become a Christian?

Brit Hume boldly suggests Tiger Woods, who considers himself more of a Buddhist, become a Christian because Christianity offers forgiveness. Some Buddhists object. Here’s what Stephen Prothero, a Boston University professor on Buddhism, said: “You have the law of karma, so no matter what Woods says or does, he is going to have to pay […]

Everyone Believes Something Unbelievable

Virgin birth. Abiogenesis. Resurrection from the dead. Random mutations producing the raw material for new organs. Intelligent creation ex nihilo. Eternal matter. Eternal mind. Heaven. Multiverses. Speciation by unguided, natural selection. Hell. Natural DNA information generation. Adam. Panspermia. Angels. No immaterial soul. Miracles. Space aliens. God. No God. That is the introduction Roddy Bullock used […]

Who "Peer Reviews" the Peer Reviewers?

Apparently only e-mail hackers.  Here’s an excerpt from Mark Steyn’s recent article “Cooking the Books on Climate.” The trouble with outsourcing your marbles to the peer-reviewed set is that, if you take away one single thing from the leaked documents, it’s that the global warm-mongers have wholly corrupted the “peer-review” process. . . .Here’s what […]

Odd Man In: Profile of Conservative Professor Mike Adams

World Magazine is running a profile of my friend, and atheist turned Christian, Dr. Mike Adams (click here).   Mike has successfully sued to invalidate speech codes (installed by liberals) at several American Universities. He’s an engaging speaker, writer and teacher. If you understand satire and sarcasm, you’ll enjoy his wildly-popular columns at Townhall.com.   If […]

The American University: Lockstep Liberalism

Surveys show that American universities are more likely to demand lock-step conformity to liberalism and secular humanism rather than championing the free exchange of ideas. In a column posted at AmericanThinker.com, recently-retired professor Ron Lipsman offers his first-hand observations: “The overwhelmingly liberal atmosphere on campus is well known. In the one place in society at […]

Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus"

Some have come to doubt the reliability of the New Testament documents by reading Bart Ehrman’s Misquoting Jesus.  But after reading Dr. Thomas Howe’s response to that popular book, if you’re fair minded you’re more likely to doubt the reliability of Misquoting Jesus.  You can download Dr. Howe’s detailed response here.

Matthew's "Raised Saints"

Some question why the dead “saints” who were “raised” after Christ’s resurrection are mentioned in Matthew (Mt. 27:52) but not anywhere else. This is a fair question. After all, if this really happened, why didn’t the other gospels mention it? When addressing this question, we must keep in mind that each saint’s body was not […]
