Friggin Reason

There are those who say we ought to rely upon reason alone, but this is irrational in the face of reality. A belief in reliance upon reason alone is not reasonable because it fails to acknowledge and account for a certain quanta of required faith. Even if someone does not state explicitly that they “believe” in reason alone, the element of faith remains.

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…

Six Solar Days, or Why God Took His Time

I’ve recently been posed a very cogent question, one that I get a lot actually: “How can you say that God created in six solar days when the sun is clearly created on the 4th day???” I do often use the term “solar day” when I’m refering to Genesis. When some people read Genesis, they impose man’s…

So Much Depends on Evolution?? Really?

“So much depends on evolution,” claims yearofevolution.org, a website showcasing the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Museum’s intent to make a year-long celebration of Darwinism. The claim is common to Darwinist polemics, so it’ll be useful to critique the claims of the site. First, we should ask, What actually depends on evolution? Well, 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.

Darwin As Pseudoscience

Evolutionists sometimes accuse Creationism of being a pseudoscience, but what if we hold evolutionism to the same standards it critiques others by? Pseudoscience is “a body of knowledge, methodology, belief, or practice that is claimed to be scientific or made to appear scientific, but does not adhere to the scientific method, lacks supporting evidence or…

Scientific American’s January Darwin Propaganda Issue Debunked

Ian Juby, President of the international Mensa Creation group, recently picked up the January 2009 copy of Scientific American. SciAm called this one ‘The Evolution of Evolution’ and, as Ian Juby correctly points out, it should have more accurately been titled, ‘The Intelligent Design of Evolution.’ Of course, that might have been an insult to…

If Evolutionists Were Smart… Redux

No Evolutionist has yet intelligently answered my challenge. [Previously noted in the original post If Evolutionists Were Smart] I’m not surprised. My challenge was thus: If the evidence for evolution is so strong, why has Big Science left off evidence-based arguments in favor of: Using censorship to keep any criticism of evolutionism out of public school…

If Evolutionists Were Smart…

I know. I know. Most of the current scientific establishment, Big Science if you will, the intelligensia, allegedly the greatest minds of our time are supposed to be evolutionists. And here I am, crackpot creationist extraoridinaire, suggesting that they aren’t all that smart. They’re not. I’m not even sure we can reasonably grant that they’re…
