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…

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…

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…

A Word on Talking Snakes

Some people seem to have a problem with the talking snake of Genesis. They say that it suggests that the Creation account was meant to be taken as allegory or fable, something that teaches truth but is not historically true. OK, so those of you who keep up with this site know that once upon…

What’s a Christian To Do With The Multiverse?

Some people talk about the Multiverse as if it’s an established fact. And some people suppose that, because it’s been connected with string theory and quantum physics, the whole thing is probably true but just over the average Joe’s head. As both an apologist and a writer of science fiction, I’m just going to say…

Has the Kachina Bridge Dinosaur Petroglyph Been Falsified? Not Even Close!

In March 2010, an intrepid pair of evolutionists, paleontologist Phil Senter and archaeologist Sally Cole, went out to Creationism’s most famous dinosaur icon, the Kachina Bridge sauropod petroglyph at Utah’s Natural Bridges National Monument. Why did they do it? Well, as Dr. Senter admits in an interview with LiveScience the problem was that the Kachina…

WV Mayor Resigns Over a Racist Post, and Why I Wrote Johnny Came Home

When I wrote my first book, Johnny Came Home, I decided to set it in a fictional town in my home state of West Virginia. I’m very proud of the great state of West Virginia. It’s a place of such wondrous natural beauty. “Wild and Wonderful” and “Almost Heaven” are apt slogans. West Virginia’s people…

Debating Creation Exotheology: Alien Intrusion vs. Strangers & Aliens

Creationists have long noted that when evolutionists refuse to debate, especially when they resort to straw man arguments and ad hominem attacks onstead, that it smacks of having a glass chin. I mean, if you have the better argument, what better way to demonstrate its superiority than through debate? Recently, I wrote a post in…

In Which Gary Bates Responds To My Post About Aliens and the Bible

Gary Bates, CEO of Creation Ministries International and the author of the best-selling book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, has responded to my previous post, Gary Bates Thinks ET Could Potentially Falsify The Bible. Predictably , he has taken objection to it and to an earlier post refuting his anti-alien arguments called Why ET Probably Doesn’t Need To…

Gary Bates Thinks ET Could Potentially Falsify the Bible

Gary Bates is the CEO of Creation Ministries International and the author of the best-selling book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection. It is perhaps no surprise that Bates does not believe aliens exist, especially intelligent aliens capable of moral decisions, because he feels the latter could potentially falsify Christianity. During a lecture given…

Something for the ET-loving Geeks Out There

Some of you know that I’m writing a new non-fiction book about aliens, UFOs and the Bible. The concept for the book developed slowly, mostly – and oddly enough – as a result of my research for the as-yet-forthcoming sequel to my action-packed sci-fi book, Johnny Came Home. Johnny Came Home was a work of…
