Fred’s in…finally

Fred Thompson is going to announce his bid for the presidency on September 6. Will he be able to meet the high expectations people (including myself) have of him? We’ll soon find out. Mike Huckabee doesn’t think so, but I’m starting to have some doubts about Huckabee, too, with his tax-and-spend record and nanny state […]

I’ve joined the “dofollow” movement

Today I removed the “nofollow” attribute from links in comments using the LinkLove plugin. So now if you are a regular commenter (5 or more comments) on my blog you’ll get a backlink (provided you enter one in the URL field). Note that I still moderate all comments due to all the spam I get […]

Who were the sons of God and the Nephilim?

Who are the “sons of God” and the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4? I was taught that the “sons of God” were fallen angels (possibly possessing the bodies of men) and that the Nephilim were the hybrid human-angel offspring. I always had a problem with this interpretation, mainly because I could not fathom the Bible referring […]

What is a right?

Filed under Politics

I was recently listening to Dr. Walter E. Williams, and he made a few comments that I had never considered before. He pointed out that we have to recognize that government has no resources of its very own. The money being spent by politicians doesn’t represent them reaching into their own pockets. Neither does it […]

Speaking in tongues

Today it really would not be that strange to ask someone, “What is your mother tongue?” Of course, you would be asking the person what their native language was. Despite the fact that we use this terminology even to this day, Pentecostal churches teach that speaking in tongues refers to speaking in gibberish that only […]

It’s not illegal if you walk backwards when you step across the border

An appeals court in Kansas has recently concluded that just being in the country illegally doesn’t necessarily violate the law, so “…a judge cannot deny probation and require a jail sentence for a convicted drug dealer who is an illegal alien.” Hmmm. So you can be doing something that is illegal, but that doesn’t necessarily […]

“Beneficial” mutations?

Comments Off on “Beneficial” mutations?

Evolutionists like to cite “beneficial” mutations as the source of the creative power of evolution. There’s just one problem: all the so-called “beneficial” mutations that have been observed involve a degradation of information. Biochemist Michael Behe recently pointed this out, and I can’t do any better than the post at Uncommon Descent at describing the […]

Is it too much to ask for Democrats to stop trashing the United States?

Filed under Politics

I don’t know if I would have realized the impact of what American politicians say on national television if I didn’t live in Japan. I hear so much negative talk about the United States here that is based on the lies told by Democrats on television. Nevermind the lies they continue to tell about President […]

Why I can’t support Mitt Romney

Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily articulates my concerns very well: Mitt Romney, fresh from a victory in the Iowa straw poll, says now he was wrong to misrepresent his position on abortion as a candidate and governor of Massachusetts. In other words, he admits he lied – then. But, what if he wasn’t lying back then? […]

Better get in the race, Fred

It’s time for Fred Thompson to get into the race. Michael Medved gives some convincing reasons why it is Mike Huckabee, and not Fred Thompson, who is going to unite the conservatives. My blog pal Bob also has a post on why Huckabee is very electable. So, where are you, Fred? It’s now or never!
