Selling Baby Body Parts: What a Difference a Video Makes

For the past few days the Center for Medical Progress has released a total of five videos, spotlighting the horrific happenings at Planned Parenthood (PP). The documented fact that unborn babies have been experimented on, their parts used for everything from vaccines to taste-testing soda and cosmetics, comes as no surprise to those deep in the trenches […]

Experiments on Intact Whole Live Fetuses and the Connection to Infant Formula

Recently the investigative journalism conducted by David Daleiden who started the Center for Medical Progress has provided a raw look into the minds of the people involved in the “human capital” abortion industry. As the videos continue to come out and lawsuits are filed threatening to suppress free speech and journalism, perhaps this is a […]

Fine Tuning and Existence: God or the Multiverse

  I have presented a critique of the first part of Sean Carroll’s lecture, “God Is Not a Good Theory”. In that first part, Carroll considers possible universes such as one consisting of a single particle in motion. In this essay, I critique the second part of his lecture, which pits God vs. the multiverse. That […]

Conspiracies & Catholicism: Lucifer and the Vatican

Did you know that the Vatican is working with LUCIFER? It’s true! People also say they’re looking for aliens! Well, sort of. Actually, they’re working right next door to each other, doing their own things, and sometimes collaborate. And I’m not saying LUCIFER in all caps because I am yelling, or even for emphasis, but because it’s […]

The Trail of Fetal Body Parts in Scientific Papers

Maybe the undercover investigation conducted by the Center for Medical Progress needed to happen so people could see and hear the gruesomeness of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. Maybe it was too easy to ignore without video-taped evidence in plain, gory language. Maybe it is not enough to be outraged at […]

I Complain, Therefore I Am

The popular atheist blogger, Hemant Mehta, ponders change with the question, “What happens when atheists are no longer a minority?” He mentions the human need to belong to a group, and the fight for a cause, and then invites answers to that question. Reading a few of the 1,600+ responses will verify the lack of […]

An A Priori Argument for Atheism?

In the video, “The Meaning of Life”, cosmologist, Sean Carroll, proposes atheistic naturalism as consistent with the complete explanation of the universe by the principles of physics. The universe consists of elementary particles obeying the laws of physics. That is all there is. This argument begins with the observation of material reality and ends with […]

Time and the Gospel of Sean

This is the first of two essays on the philosophy of the atheist cosmologist, Sean Carroll. The main idea carried over to the second essay is the distinction between qualitative time as the condition of mutability and quantitative time as the logical comparison of one local motion with another. Today, replacement of the lens of […]

The Subsistent Soul: Are You More than Particles?

The Subsistent Soul: Are You More than Particles?

The word “subsistent” is tricky. Modern day dictionaries define “to subsist” as “to be sustained,” or “to maintain existence” or “to support or maintain with provisions or funds, to support.” This meaning is consistent with the word’s etymology. In classical Latin, subsistere meant “to stand firm” or “to come with relief or support.” In post-classical […]

Christ is the Best Math Teacher Ever

Many folks look at math as an old enemy, still licking the wounds of distant brushes with word problems and equations that were never fully understood, much less solved. For others, math is a comfortable pair of slippers that bring warm and fuzzy memories of solving problems other students could never even figure out how […]

The Depiction Of Motion In Scripture And In Science

I backed out of the garage and to the right onto the parking area, then turned left onto the driveway. At the end of the driveway I turned left onto the road heading south. That is a mental depiction as if I were an outside observer. What I visually observed could have been captured by […]

Marin Mersenne: A Priest at the Heart of the Scientific Revolution

In late 1644, the Minim friar Marin Mersenne (1588-1648) travelled to Florence and assisted Evangelista Torricelli (1608-1647) in repeating his famous barometric experiment. When Mersenne returned to France, he shared Torricelli’s discovery with his network of correspondents, “giving rise to flourishing experimental and theoretical activities,”[1] including the famous work on the weight of air conducted […]

Galileo Redux: Church Meddling in Science?

“Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings  “Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.

Intelligent Design and Darwinian Gradualism

The dispute, ‘Intelligent Design’ vs. Neo-Darwinism, is philosophical, namely whether the origin of biological forms is rational or random. The ‘ID’ side proceeds from the philosophical conclusion of biological design to the existence of a designer, namely God. However, each side wishes to have its argument viewed as scientific. One approach by the ID proponents […]

The Hazards of Creationism

In late October, Pope Francis made some remarks supporting the theory of evolution. Although he merely echoed what Pope John Paul II had said about evolution two decades ago, nevertheless a media frenzy ensued. To understand why, it’s wise to remember that both print and TV media thrive on controversy, whereas agreement or conciliation aren’t […]

Born to Rest in Truth

Is your washing machine running? Maybe you’ve had the experience I’ve had. Wet clothes, especially towels, get unevenly distributed in the tub, causing it to spin madly and make frightening noises. Sometimes it sounds like the beating of a large bass drum, a beating that escalates in frequency and intensity. Some washing machine models automatically […]
