Evolutionists fear other ideas

As you may know, Answers in Genesis has opened a huge Creation Museum in Kentucky. On Ken Ham’s blog, he gives some responses by people at the University of Cincinnati. “What I have a problem with is how the Answers in Genesis movement twists science — repeatedly taking facts out of context — in order […]

Violent crime up again, more murders, robberies

Comments Off on Violent crime up again, more murders, robberies

There’s a story on Yahoo that reports that the murder rate in the US is going up. The FBI reported that the number of violent crimes nationwide went up by 1.3 percent last year, following a 2.3 percent increase in 2005. That had been the first rise in four years and the biggest percentage gain […]

Comments Off on Seafood imports from China raised in untreated sewage

Okay, now this is scary. Red meat: bad for you. Fish: tainted with feces? China, the leading exporter of seafood to the U.S., is raising most of its fish products in water contaminated with raw sewage and compensating by using dangerous drugs and chemicals, many of which are banned by the Food and Drug Administration.

As per a suggestion received on Blog Catalog, I’m going to try turning off the requirement for registration for a while. If there are a lot of spam comments I’ll have to turn it back on.

There’s two things funny about this story in the Telegraph. First, the British apparently refer to “math” as “maths.” Ha, ha. I didn’t know that. The second thing is that these experts don’t know what they’re talking about. I was one of these “shy children.” I didn’t ever want to raise my hand in class–even […]

Moral relativism is rampant these days, and it seems the only thing moral relativists are willing to condemn is Christianity. My friend Richard has a good discussion of moral relativism going on on his blog.

Fred Thompson had a nice piece on National Review yesterday. So many people seem to be clueless about the situation in the Middle East. It seems like everyone thinks that because Israel is militarily advantaged that it is the Palestinians who are the victims. The restraint that Israel shows never ceases to amaze me. Far […]

How involved is God in everyday events?

Comments Off on How involved is God in everyday events?

This is not going to be a theological discussion, but more of a personal observation. I’m still trying to collect my thoughts on the subject, so I haven’t come to a conclusion yet. One often hears the words “God is in control” at church or on the radio. God is the omnipotent creator of the […]

Have you ever heard of “wetware”? A while back I subscribed to Merriam Webster’s “Word of the Day,” and yesterday’s word was “wetware.” It means “the human brain or a human being considered especially with respect to human logical and computational capabilities.” That’s a pretty interesting word. I’m going to have to use it sometime. […]
