Are Children Born Atheists? Science Suggests Otherwise.

A few years ago, I read the following claim pastor-turned-atheist Bruce Gerencser: “Every child born into this world is born an atheist. They don’t know one thing about god or religion. They don’t know about sin, salvation, or morality. As far as god and religion are concerned, every newborn is a blank slate. Belief in…

A Day at the Ark Encounter 

I’ve been looking forward to visiting the Ark Encounter for… well, pretty much since I first heard about it. Meanwhile, atheists and other misotheists have been maligning it and trying to sink it ever since they heard about it.  Most recently, Andrew Seidel, an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, used some footage from a trip…

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. He claims that his Clergy Letter Project, signed by over 12,000 members of predominantly liberal clergy, shows that evolution and Christianity are compatible so long as we define religious truth as dealing with doctrine and morality and scientific…

God & Stephen Hawking Dispute the Existence of Heaven: Guess WHO Wins?

Stephen Hawking essentially thinks heaven is a comforting fairy tale for those afraid of death. God, of course, disagrees, as revealed in His Holy Word, the Bible. In an interview published in The Guardian, the 69-year-old theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking claims says the human brain is like a computer that will stop working when its components fail….

Reasonable Enough: Why Reason Does Not Compel Acceptance

It is COMPLETELY WRONG to say that I think atheists or any other non-Christians would agree with me if they would just open up their eyes and see reason.  I do not believe reason could infect someone [profoundly affect someone] so as to compel them to see my position as truth. I don’t think that…

Why the Need for Interpretation Does NOT Prove a Religion False

A few blog posts I’ve come across contend that the very fact that the Bible [or any other text that claims to be of Divine origin] needs to be translated automatically invalidates its claims to Divine origin. Upon further inspection it became obvious that they simply weren’t accounting for free will.

Creation Cryptids: Little Green Men & UFOs 2

A Christian simply has to acknowledge the UFO enigma. I mean, what are these strange lights in the heavens? Who pilots them, if anyone? And why in the blazes are they in our skies? And who benefits? [More on this in a moment.] Now there are several ways we might account for UFOs. 1. A…

The Church of PZ “Wackaloon” Myers & Ideological Child Abuse

Yes, the title of this blog is inflammatory. Yes, it’s on purpose. I hope I have your attention. Recently, I made a comment defending Ken Ham after PZ Myers of Pharyngula fame called him a “wackaloon” and then invited “millions” [dream on, PZ. Neither you nor Darwinism is THAT popular] of others to pour some…

Higher Ignorance – At least the name’s accurate

Lately, I’ve been reading two books: The Religious Case Against Belief by James P. Carse and I Don’t Believe in Atheists by Chris Hedges. I think both books are a waste of print, though they say largely the same thing. They both promote a fuzzy, pseudo-existentialist post-modernism, but try to give it a gloss of…

Atheists & Evolutionists: They Always Appeal To A Higher Power

Has anyone else noticed this somewhat endearing trend amongst atheists and evolutionists? Whenever they’re boxed into a corner and can’t answer a bleeding argument, they nearly immediately invoke some sort of “super-atheist,” some sort of fundie neoDarwin apologist, some member of the oft-described “better/smarter men than I” club. Be it richarddawkins.net, talkorigins or their favorite antitheistic author…

Why Naturalism Makes Darwin Unfalsifiable

Naturalism. By definition, it is the presupposition that the world came into being, developed [i.e. – evolved] to its present state and is sustained by purely material processes. God is not needed. Or so they hope. I think they’ve mistaken the concept of a God who is not wanted [by them, at any rate] with…
