Think you understand what a “week” is? Maybe you don’t! (Actually, yes you do…)

Someone recently asked me a question that brought to mind a couple of thoughts about the structure and knowledge of the “week,” and I thought they might make for a nice blog post. As one who has encountered a number of weird, private calendar ideas, I would say that one of the most novel is the idea … Continue reading

Britain’s modern Molech revival

The Bible contains many warnings to ancient Israel concerning an abhorrent practice of the Canaanites, who had previously possessed the land God had given them. We see one such example in Leviticus 18:21, “You shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech…” It was an abominable practice, in which people sought … Continue reading

AWOL on “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey”

Well, I feel I am somehow doing a disservice and failing at my “job” by not writing much about the new series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson. I love science, and I love writing about it (hence the Works of His Hands articles for the Tomorrow’s World magazine–the newest of which I am currently late … Continue reading

Techniques of Non-Prophets: Wax Fruit

It has been a while since I have contributed to this series, and now that I have rediscovered my blog I thought it would be nice to submit another entry. Here are links to the first few: Techniques of Non-Prophets: Arbitrage through Tautology Techniques of Non-Prophets: The Speculation/Prophecy Two-Step Techniques of Non-Prophets: Got Me a Title! Today, we … Continue reading

Final Thoughts on the Nye / Ham Debate

Thanks to everyone for their comments on the previous post. From what I see here and on Facebook and in some discussions here and there, it seems as though insights and opinions differ, but not too starkly. I mentioned then that I would share my own thoughts, so I will do that in this post. … Continue reading

After the Bill Nye / Ken Ham Debate – Your Comments?

Well, it was quite a debate! For those who didn’t see the Bill Nye / Ken Ham debate live, it is apparently going to be archived at debatelive.org for a while, so you can still see it. If you saw it, what are your thoughts? I have some definite opinions, but I’d like to hear … Continue reading

God and the u-bit

Science on the brain, today… Tonight, Ken Ham of the Creation Museum just south of us in Kentucky and Bill Nye of “The Science Guy” fame will debate the question “Is creation a viable model of origins?” I had hoped to get tickets, but given that they sold out in two hours, that wasn’t going … Continue reading

Christians and Heathen Prophecy

Heard someone’s perspective on this recently, and it seemed a good blog topic. Frankly, it’s been on my mind for a long time, so this is likely going to be a long one. You might want to get some coffee–I can’t guarantee it will be exciting enough to keep you awake… Is it OK for … Continue reading

Flashback: Thank you, Mr. Armstrong

Today marks the 28th anniversary of the death of Herbert W. Armstrong. I hope that we’re all thankful for the work he did–really, the work that God did through him–and for the impact it had and continues to have as the ministry he invigorated continues through those he personally trained to carry on God’s Work. … Continue reading

Finding God in Geometry Class

This post deserves to be much longer and deeper than it will be, but I’m still going to post it while I have this brief opportunity. Plato once said, “Geometry aims at the eternal.” For me, this statement was very true as a 9th grade geometry student in high school, except that it is missing … Continue reading
