Simulation Theory and Creationism: More In Common Than You Think 

Originally posted on Exotheology.org:
I was reading a 2016 feedback article on Creation.com, entitled, “Is the universe a simulation?” when I realized how much the allegedly Biblical principles that modern creationists tout in support of their Earthbound religious perspective have in common with Simulation Hypothesis.?

On the Compatibility of Christian Faith & Evolution: Which Atheist is Lying To Us?

This weekend, atheist Dr. Michael Zimmerman is once again encouraging churches to preach Darwin from their pulpits.
