Consensus Science, Geocentrism and Aliens

In 2003, the late science fiction author Michael Crichton delivered a lecture at Caltech entitled, “Aliens Cause Global Warming.” The purpose of the lecture was to take to task the sort of science that uses political and social pressure to enforce groupthink. His lecture is often cited in critiques and criticisms of global warming. The…

Using Darwin’s Bulldog To Show A Rational Creationism

People are often surprised to learn that I build the central premise of my first non-fiction book, Defending Genesis, upon the words of the man known as Darwin’s Bulldog.  You see, while Thomas Huxley was certainly no friend of religion, he did have the intellectual honesty to concede that Biblical creationism was rational. `Creation,’ in the…

Should you leave your church if they don’t have services on Christmas?

Believe it or not, there are a number of people who are posting things like, “If your church doesn’t have services on Christmas Sunday, find another church.” Now I will admit that it seems ironic that churches cancel services on a holiday that we claim celebrates the birth of Christ. I can’t imagine anyone doing…

Should We Not Teach “Bible Stories?”

The following is an excerpt from Strangers and Aliens: A Christian Sci-fi Author Examines the Argument for Extraterrestrial Life. First and foremost, the Bible is a book of Wonders, which is little wonder (pun intended) if you stop to consider how very creative its Chief Author is. The Bible contains records of supernatural miracles and prophecies…

Are We Born Atheists? Science Suggests Otherwise

It’s been a while since I posted anything for How To Fall Down. One of the reasons for this was that I’d been blocked from even viewing Bruce Gerencser’s?website, basically because he had a strong objection to my deconstructing his fall from the faith. The other reason is…

Is Christmas a Pagan Holiday? or Why It’s OK To Celebrate Christmas 

When I was a kid, there were folks talking about how secular society was minimizing Christian influence during the Christmas season. In the name of being tolerant, there were those who said that you couldn’t say “Merry Christmas.” You had to say “Happy Holidays,” or better yet “Season’s Greetings. ” School children were encouraged to…

John Glenn on Creation and Evolution 

A true American hero died yesterday. John Glenn died at the ripe old age of 95, having lived a full and adventurous life. He got his first taste of flying when he was only eight. He flew a toral if 149 combat missions during World War II and the Korean War. At the time of…

Are Aliens Demons? 

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
​The short answer to the question is No and Sometimes. While there were some in the Contactee movement of the 1950s and 60s who described aliens as technological angels, and even some today who ascribe to an Ancient Astronaut theory that all historical mentions of angels, gods and demigods were…

A Shout-out to Answers in Genesis for a Recent Display of Rational Restraint 

It seems that lately this blog has been fixated on creation exotheology, theology that concerns itself with how Biblical Christianity might deal with the discovery of extraterrestrial life. One of the reasons for this is quite obviously because I just published a book on the subject. Of course, I wrote Strangers and Aliens because I was concerned about…

Read the Most Hated Book in Creationism

It’s the same old story. The consensus hides behind an appeal to authority while suppressing dissenting views by barring those who stray from the party line from discussion forums and attacking the dissenter instead of his arguments. We’ve seen it a thousand times. FROM EVOLUTIONISTS. Since the publication of Strangers and Aliens: A Christian Sci-fi…
