Why Is The Universe So Big, And Why Is So Much Of It Hostile To Life?


Dawkins Successor Gives a Second Thought to God


But your next question should be what he means by “God.” I’m referring to Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, current Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, the position occupied by Richard Dawkins before he retired from it.

John Farrell at Forbes reviews du Sautoy’s new book, The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science, with chapters on Chaos, Matter, Quantum Physics, The Universe, Time, Consciousness, and Infinity.

Farrell quotes:


Defining Species—An Elephant-Sized Problem


The Liberals’ Misguided Love Affair With Islam

These days, if you expose something murderous or hateful, you are guilty of a worse sin — the sin of judging.

an Francisco, CA, USA – June 24, 2016: People at the Transmarch in San Francisco.

Why do so many liberals praise a religion that, at its root, is quite conservative, if not fundamentalist? Why do they defend a faith that would not defend them? Worse still, why do they defend a faith that, in some cases, would do violence to them?

Last week, Robert Spencer, Director of Jihad Watch and a New York Times bestselling author on radical Islam, was invited to speak at the University of Buffalo.

To paraphrase, “Not on our campus! We are progressive. We are liberal. We are enlightened. You will not bring your hate-filled bigotry here!”

In Spencer’s own words, “I spoke a few sentences and made a couple of points in between being screamed at by Leftist and Islamic supremacist fascists who think they’re opposing fascism.”

Did you catch that? Spencer was opposed by staunch liberals and staunch Muslims. What an odd couple they make, yet this has happened time and again in the recent past. Why?

Myths about the Lost Books of the New Testament

by Ryan Turner

There are a number of popular myths about these supposed “lost Gospels” that are not in the New Testament.  The following is a response to these general misunderstandings.

Myth #1: The Lost Gospels should be in the New Testament.

Contrary to the claims of some, there were not hundreds of Gospels that were written about Jesus in the first century.  The early Church only had access to four first-century Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  This is why there are only four Gospels in the New Testament.  The simple fact is that there were not any other first-century Gospels in existence at that time.

Furthermore, the criteria which the early Church used to discover which books were from God include the following:
