    The true god that reins in America: Never you

    mind when you hear them declare themselves followers of Jesus Christ, or the Old Testament if Judoist, or the Koran when they call themselves Muslim, or Buddhist, or Taoist. Look instead at the manner in which they live and how they conduct themselves with others; for it is more...

    “Ex nihilo nihil fit.” In other words, something can't come from nothing. (Not Hawking’s or Krauss’ mendacious pseudo-definition of “nothing” (“The Grand Design”/ ”A Universe From Nothing“) but the concept that describes the absence of anything; the state of...

    Alien Life & Evolution

    There was always been this thing about Alien life and I just think with common sense, the answer is yes, there is life beyond Earth. The problem is, life as it is, may be very different from what humans are on other planets. The reason is because in other planets, the gravity in...

    Wisdom of the Ancients

    Theology is the science that governs all other sciences.  I liked the movie "Contact" because there was science and there was religion, both supposedly dedicated to truth, or searching for truth.  Frankly, in both religion and science, I see hypocrisy and...

    Flipping For Purpose Or The Cause

    Teleological and causal relationship might look like a coin-flip away - but they are world apart, metaphysically. I live to eat. I eat to live. This is a classic example of purpose versus cause. The purpose for me living is in order that I may eat - a very materialistic - and...

    Issues I Have With Christianity

    As far as I know, God never authored a book.

    "Live this way" by God "Here's why things are" by God It seems to me, all religious texts are treated as if they were, in fact, penned by God himself, which is certainly not the case. Religious texts seem intent on two things. Assert rules to live by, and explain why things...
