Changing Truth

Via Ed Brayton’s blog comes the link to Dan Fincke’s review of Christianity’s latest “poor me” porno, God Is Not Dead. Thank you, Dan, for watching that movie so that the rest of us don’t have to! Dan actually wrote a multi-part review that may end up being remembered long after this entirely forgettable movie …

Can sin save the Creator?

My last post about AJ Castellitto’s column attacking evolution has drawn the attention of the author himself, in the comments. In my reply, I pointed out the fact that, by denying evolution, creationists are accusing God of failing to come up with any idea as good as Darwin’s. The Genesis design won’t let species improve …

Story, critical of Fox News, disappears from Christian Post

This is interesting. On Jan. 3rd, the Christian Post published an article by Morgan Lee reporting that a Christian blogger was calling Todd Starnes a liar due to his biased, selective, and misleading reporting about “persecution” against Christians.

Oh, hey, there’s a cute story in TheBlaze.com. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) plans to introduce a bill Wednesday that would prevent the Obama administration from pressuring churches into recognizing gay marriage.

Wielding your sword by the blade

For this week’s installment of Pastor Feinstein’s presuppositional apologetics, I actually find a point the Pastor got right. Only one, though—the rest of the time his reasoning is more like a man trying to do battle using a sword with no hilt.

About the billboard contest…

Just a quick note about the billboard contest I announced at the beginning of the month. Only two people submitted any actual artwork, and one of those was ineligible due to licensing issues, so I’ve decided to cancel the contest. Some of you might enjoy browsing the entries submitted by Sam D., though, so I’ve …

Prerequisites of intelligibility

Over at Evangelical Realism we’re starting our analysis of Pastor Stephen Feinstein’s second post in his debate with Russell Glasser on the subject of presuppositional apologetics, and this week’s topics deal largely with the subject of the intelligibility of the universe, and the prerequisites for that intelligibility. Thanks again to Russell for setting up this …
