Oxford Professor Emeritus Fellow Richard Dawkins is among the world’s most famous atheists, thanks largely to his prolific pen, which produced such well-read books as “The God Delusion” and “The Blind Watchmaker.”
Less appreciated perhaps is the unmitigated bluntness with which Dawkins so forthrightly discusses the implications of his conclusions about the origin of man and the universe for the rest of us.
Writing on the Moral Apologetics blog last year, Theologian Tom Thomas pointed to the stark difference between Dawkins’ view of suffering and tragedy in human existence that of Jesus Christ. Continue reading “Who Said DNA And Suffering Are Meaningless, Atheist Dawkins or Jesus?”
Perhaps you’ve heard it before: “Christians are just a bunch of hypocrites!” Or maybe this version: “Christianity can’t be true because so many Christians are fakes.”
It’s a popular claim, one that has led many people to close their minds to even considering the growing mountains of credible evidence for the reality of the empty tomb of Jesus and His Resurrection.
The issue has special significance for men and women working at all levels on the Hill because of the high value placed on authenticity and shame attached to hypocrisy. Continue reading “Does Christian Hypocrisy Prove Christianity Is False?”
No, when people talk about the “Multiverse” theory, they aren’t talking about music with a lot of stanzas or choruses. Odds are, they are talking about more basic issues like “how did the universe get here” and “why are there human beings.”
You can’t talk about those kinds of issues on Capitol Hill or anywhere else these days without somebody, sooner rather than later, confidently pronouncing something like “our universe is just one of many universes that are constantly evolving and forever changing.”
And hey, if Neil deGrasse Tyson believes in the multiverse theory, it must be true, right? I mean, right? Well, no, as a matter of fact, allow me to introduce Regis Nicoll and a fascinating analysis of the countless problems with the multiverse theory.

If you have followed the “This Is Us” tv series, you will recognize Chrissy Metz as “Kate,” daughter of Jack and Rebecca Pearson and sister to brothers Kevin and Randall.
What you may not recognize is Metz boldly declaring her Christian faith despite that often being a ticket to professional oblivion in tinsel town.
“It is hard I think, now, to just be really vocal about your faith, or what you believe in because people want to think ‘it’s not cool,’ but I’m like, I don’t care!” Metz recently told Faithwire’s Lindsey Elizabeth.

It’s been an argument of critics for much of the modern era, the contention being that humans yearn to know what happens after they die, so they invent religion to supply the answer.
“So a lot of people will try and say ‘well, yeah, if you become a Christian, you’re going to go to Heaven,’ but it’s not just fire insurance,” Cross-examined.org’s Dr. Frank Turek says in response to a student’s question in the following video.

Unless there is some way to determine if the rock from which sprung Mithras — the ancient mythical god at the heart of the mystery cult known as “Mithraism” — was a virgin, that is.
That Jesus’ virgin birth was stolen from the Mithras myth is one of the many allegations raised by Christianity’s critics, ancient and modern. They contend the New Testament authors borrowed heavily from multiple pagan religions to elevate an obscure itinerant preacher named Jesus to divinity.
Not so, contends Dr. Timothy Paul Jones, an expert on such matters who teaches at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS). Jones addresses a bunch of the supposed parallels.

A familiar maxim in the conventional secular wisdom of the age is that the Bible is nothing more than a collection of tales and cannot therefore be trusted as a reliable historical source.
The reality is that for decades archeology has been producing mounds of evidence that supports the Bible as not merely a reliable source but quite possibly the most reliable and comprehensive one for the ancient Middle East.
The latest illustration of this fact is found in “Biblical Archeologies Top 10 Discoveries in 2018,” written by ARTIFAX magazine editor Gordon Covier for Christianity Today.
