Ken Ham’s trying his hand at biology again. This time he’s taking on David P. Barash and in general just being bad at biology.
I found myself wanting to respond to this on the basis of my name is invoked and as all my readers know that if you write my words out it invokes my like Beetlejuice. And you will see why I am generally amused by this.
Pope Francis began calling for a greater acceptance for the GLBT an this was considered a stunning overture. A landmark decision to try and make the Church take on a more progressive nature. Albeit a few decades later than the rest of us. Still progress is progress even if a tad late.
But that wasn’t to be. [Read more...]
This is the rather charming press release from Children of God for Life.
A little back story, a short distance from my quiet little hospital lies an institution run by a charity I don’t quite like.

Long story short? Battle Lines were drawn up between two groups of people. One who think atheism is just about having no gods and the other who point out that there exist theological structures that permeate our society that cause discrimination that even we take for granted and that perhaps we should realise some uncomfortable truths about the society we live in and that includes the people who make up atheism.
Some atheists are involved in issues of politics, science and society.
The Christian Times is trying to engage us and these are some points made by Professor John Lennox out at the London Evangelists’ Conference.
You don’t have to read hundreds of books before you can discuss your faith with an atheist. Sometimes claims and questions that are just short soundbites can be answered just as quickly. At the London Evangelists’ Conference yesterday, Professor John Lennox offered some quick responses to some common claims from atheists.
These should be good. [Read more...]
Todd Starnes is in a tizzy. He bemoans the terrible loss of freedom that occurs when Christians are faced with anti-bigotry laws and Fox as usual gives him free reign to portray the denial of bigotry as an assault on freedom and Christian values.
