New Book Announcement

Coming in Spring 2018 is my first publication, tentatively entitled "The Myth of Scientific Certainty, an Apologetic Regarding Scientific Structures." It is an exploration into the structure of scientific theories, the structure and arguments of various scientists,...

Book Review: Live Not by Lies

I’m going to attempt to cover the intent of this work fairly though I will employ some of my own terminology and phrasing. It should be consistent with Mr. Dreher’s intent. His previous popular work, The Benedict Option, bothered me. It bothered me because I saw it as...

Movie Review: Knives Out

Knives Out is a comedy with that features a cast of players in roles that will surprise you. Those of us who enjoyed True Lies may not recognize Jamie Lee Curtis. Daniel Craig attempts a southern accent. Christopher Plummer and Frank Oz are recognizable for their...

Three Books

I wanted to call this piece “Three Books on Racism” but it really isn’t. The books are about Marxism and social manipulation. Then again, calling it “Three Books on Marxism” would scare a lot of people away. And to some it would be misleading as the topic of...

Ethics

Two Kingdoms vs the RFRA

Mea culpa.  I took the bait. I reacted rashly.  You can see it in my tweets.  It's not that I was "wrong" so much as misdirected.  That's what seems to be at issue. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, RFRA, is a good thing in my opinion.  It gives local legs to its...

The Question of Morality Without God

This inquiry begins with a question: Does natural law bear moral authority? Is it possible to find in the nature of things created any sort of moral imperative that would bring about human flourishing? The answer seems both simple and complicated. This post is will...

One Reason to Have and Use a Block Plane

Some people think of woodworking as an either-or proposition. Either everything is done with power tools or everything is done with hand tools. Hand tools give your work a character that can't be replicated. There are so many things that one can do manually that power...

Apologetics

The Systematic, Evangelical Mind

This is standard for all orthodoxies. No naturalismist constructs an apologetic for YEC, OEC, or TE. They just don’t. These are called “belief systems.” It seems silly to have to say that, but it seems Mr. Enns missed something really basic.

Education

On Frameworks of Scientific Inquiry

Philosophy of science, like any other area, struggles with both method and framework. The methods side of the equation is most familiar to us. These are the questions of how theories are best constructed. That is where I have spent most of my time. The challenges are...

Ministry

An Introduction

This effort is about apologetics that makes a difference in daily living. The emphasis is on science and ethics and the venue for teaching these is the local church. The science discussion is geared toward students (secondary & later), teachers, and scientists. The ethics discussion is for everyone. Read also for my doctrinal statement and other matters of importance.

How a “Fake News” Item Fits a Narrative-Driven Scenario

What if the narrative of the echo chamber is wrong? What if there is another narrative which explains the facts better? Education is the challenge of conservative media. The apocalyptic message of some will distract us from the goal of preparing the people. Conservatism is best when it takes the offensive. A defensive posture will always lose.
