Religion and Science Fiction on Halloween

Today was the first time that my class on religion and science fiction has met on Halloween, and so I dressed appropriately, and encouraged students to do the same. Few rose to the challenge, as you can see in the photo (the student on the right explained that she was dressed as a muggle). I [Read More...]

Misplaced Gods

I could have called this post several other things.

The text for last Sunday’s sermon at my church was Paul’s speech at the Areopagus. My wife was [Read More...]

Why Young-Earth Creationism is so Implausible, in a Nutshell

Commenter arcseconds put it beautifully: Doesn’t it strike you as remotely strange that the world’s scientists should accept a framework which is so obviously flawed any idiot can see through it? I mean, if it’s really this simple, they’re either a bunch of fools, or engaged in some huge confidence trick. The former seems contradicted [Read More...]
