Maybe wondering about whether we have a soul is a bit like wondering whether we should act more mature in difficult situations.
No wonder New Atheism petered out. It wasn’t just all the stupid profanity. Ultimately, maybe they couldn’t argue with the math.
Some people may still think that “science” is whatever gets published in a journal. Not any more, that’s for sure.
In the midst of defeat, conquest, devastation, chaos and want, Jeremiah expresses confidence in and loyalty to God: Lamentations 3:22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[b] his mercies never come to an end;23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” 25 The Lord is Read More…
A video: Of course, in a day of revisionism and anti-Westernism, it is sometimes said that this was not a decisive event for the course of WW2. It is pointed out that after Stalingrad and Kursk, Germany was on the retreat, never mind the huge disparity in casualties. That’s true. Instead, it was a Geostrategically Read More…
Whether proteins can evolve or not will not in the least influence the argument for irreducible complexity. Function cannot evolve gradually.
Expect more dating controversies in archaeology, some of which impinge on events that people care about.
Our minds read things but it doesn’t follow that we can read our minds. We can’t even read brains. Which is not the same thing.
The kairos concept is, in a nutshell, that there are seasons in life and in community, so that there are times that are opportune or even simply pivotal and trend-making. At such times, we are forced to decide, for good or ill. And yes, carry on with business as usual . . . especially on Read More…
One life form has even developed an immaterial mind. If a theory of evolution can provide no account of this, it is not going to be particularly useful at predicting the future. On the other hand, its premises might make good science fiction.
Sort of thing that had to happen eventually. Old and bust: “According to geneticist and author Richard Dawkins, Fisher [1890-1962] was the greatest biologist since Charles Darwin.” Old and bust, it seems.
Most likely, “emotions research” is nonsense. But tying it to Darwinism means that its practitioners can hammer down hard on that lectern even if they are not making sense to the people whose emotions they are supposed to be describing. It’s all those people’s fault for being “creationists.”
The Big Bang Theory sitcom’s Sheldon Cooper insists that in no universe would he dance with Penny. That mighrt be true, says Marks but there still isn’t an infinite number of universes: But, some claim, there is an infinite number of universes in the multiverse. That is ludicrous because there are no infinities in the Read More…
Curiously, researchers are pretty sure it was a parasite but what it is, apart from that, remains elusive. It’s an unusual case of knowing more about the organism’s behavior than about the organism itself.
We’ve been hearing complaints about Lancet and other journals for years. Trust but verify. “Science” is a discipline, not an incantation.
