Pig in a Poke: Why Evolution Weekend Fails As An Example of Reasoned, Civil Discourse

Atheist Michael Zimmerman is promoting his Evolution Weekend as an example of reasoned, civilized discourse. Writing for the HuffPo, Zimmerman claims that: “Thousands upon thousands of Christian clergy members, from Baptists to Quakers and from Methodists to Episcopalians, Lutherans, Roman Catholics and many more, have stated as clearly as possible that their religion and modern…

Pastor Blasts Biblical Inerrancy. I Demonstrate Why This Is A Bad Idea

On June 24, 2010, Associated Baptist Press reported on a sermon delivered on the same day by Dr. Wm. Richard Kremer to Garden Lakes Baptist Church in Rome, GA, entitled, Is the Bible Inerrant?

Casting Pearls, or When Argument Is Pointless – Part 3

Are Old Earth & Young Earth Creationism Both Biblical, Orthodox Interpretations? A Response to Dr Jay Wile’s Big Tent Orthodoxy Position & the 21st Century Down-Grade

The other day I received a phone call from a rather delightful Orthodox Presbyterian. Mr. Jonathan Orcutt, a Biblical Creationist, called to encourage me, having read some of my comments on Dr. Jay Wile’s blog site. Mr. Orcutt was most upset over this Great Homeschool Conventions debacle in which Ken Ham has been judged a sinner for…
