Quote of the Day (Glenn Peoples)

“[T]he conservative Christian community wants its scholars as long as it can control them. It’s as though there are communities of believers who really think that they already know and understand as much as can possibly be understood about the Bible, theology, philosophy etc, and what they want is someone with letters after their name [Read More…]

More on Geocentrism (and AoG vs. AiG)

Joel Watts continues his series on geocentrism with a post gathering Biblical passages which reflect a geocentric (or at least a flat earth) cosmology. He also posted about Ken Ham’s attack on the Assemblies of God, who dare to disagree with him. In related news, RJS at Jesus Creed asks what we mean by “literal.” James [Read More…]

Self-Righteousness and Self-Delusion in the Blogosphere

Although I’m currently undergoing a spam attack, giving in to a bully only encourages them to carry on with their bullying. And since this particular bully has made clear that his aim is to get me to switch on comment moderation, that’s obviously the one thing that I must absolutely not do. But I can [Read More…]

Does the Bible “Teach” Geocentrism?

Does the Bible “teach” geocentrism? I’m glad that Joel Watts is taking the time to argue the case that it does. But I’d like to suggest that that’s not the best way to phrase the question. The Biblical literature was entirely composed in contexts where geocentrism was accepted as true, and it is worth noting [Read More…]
