Natural Living

This came my way via Facebook. I’ve often thought it ironic that people in a time when modern medicine has eliminated so many diseases that are part of nature, have the luxury of talking about living in harmony with nature. Nature provides things which we have evolved to eat, and so can be better for us [Read More...]

Science Denial Tactics

Ken Perrott shared this useful image with Sean Carroll's list of tactics used by science-deniers for more than a hundred years. Some of them claim to be standing on “the unchanging Word of God,” when the reality is they are standing on unchanging tactics of deception, which haven't changed because they continue to be effective [Read More...]

Common Myths About Evolution

Jerry Coyne was the first to draw my attention to the above video which has been circulating, tackling five myths about evolution. Larry Moran offered a demonstration on his blog that Michael Behe’s claims in The Edge of Evolution have been disproved. He also highlights ID proponents’ approach to damage control in relation to Stephen Meyer’s book Darwin’s [Read More...]

Hymn to Matter

I recently spotted that Kenneth Leighton set Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s “Hymn to Matter” to music, in a composition for baritone, chorus, and orchestra or piano. I’ve been looking to see if there is a recording of the piece, but have yet to find one. I’m surprised that there aren’t more settings of Teilhard de [Read More...]

Trust in God and in the Human Mind

I recently came across this meme image with a quote from Ken Miller. I also saw that Jerry Coyne (blogging about an interview Miller gave) is once again struggling to grasp the basic idea that not all people have the same ideas about God and theology. Of course, I am not sure that he wants to [Read More...]

How Fundamentalists Promote Atheism

The image below is a composite of a Christian response to the Ken Ham/Bill Nye debate, plus the scientific explanation of sunsets. It is frustrating that there are people who consider themselves Christians and yet seem to be making every effort to promote atheism. Why on Earth would anyone feel the need to choose between [Read More...]

Ham’s False Dichotomy

Ham’s false dichotomy between a system where “man decides truth” and “God’s word is truth” serves well to keep his audience skeptical of both evolution and mainstream geology. Ultimately, however, we must deal with the fact that to read and understand God’s word, we utilize the same cognitive abilities that allow us to reconstruct the [Read More...]
