I will be blogging over the coming days and weeks about many of the topics that I touch on in my book, The Burial of Jesus: What Does History Have to Do with Faith?, which is now for sale at Amazon.com for just $2.99. One of the topics I address is the focus (some might [Read More...]

Young-Earth Creationists Believe Supernovas are Beautiful Lies told by God

Young-earth creationists, strictly speaking, can’t believe that there are such things as “supernovas” in the sense in which other people use that term. That term refers to stars exploding in faraway parts of the universe. For instance, the NASA page about one supernova visible in recent memory, SN 1987A, says this: “The star is 163,000 light-years away [Read More...]

Biblical Valentines?

I’ve shared a few sci-fi Valentines (with a couple more to follow later today). But what about Biblical or Christian Valentines? There are some obvious routes, such as using verses from the Song of Songs. And the flip side, condemning the whole thing as sheer paganism.

Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones

The Doctor Who episode “The Faceless Ones” from the Patrick Troughton era is a gripping mystery set largely in Gatwick Airport, where aliens have infiltrated and are working to abduct human young people.

Ken Ham Finally Confesses His Heresy!

Thanks to a commenter for pointing out that Ken Ham, in a post on his blog yesterday, finally confessed his unbiblical heretical teachings in unambiguous terms. Ham wrote, “God’s people need to repent of compromise and return to the foundation of the inerrant Word of God instead of building on the foundation of fallible sinful [Read More...]

Beware of False Teachers – And Be Aware You Might Be One!

Most of the more conservative to fundamentalist forms of Christianity place at least some emphasis on avoiding false teachers. The conservatives in every denomination – and those who claim not to have a denomination – can regularly be seen turning this weapon of religious competition against others. Charismatics and Pentecostals warn against those who claim [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Twin Dilemma

When Colin Baker took on the role of the Doctor, something marvellous occurred. More than ever since the first regeneration, there were moments when one could really have believed that this was truly the same character that had featured on the show in its beginning. At times Colin Baker even seems to look like William [Read More...]
