Rightly Dividing

CandleOnBookby Deana Chadwell    8/31/14
I have occasionally heard the Bible described as nothing more than some ancient scriblings by a bunch of dead guys. Well, true; it’s ancient – the book of Job probably dates back to c2500 B.C., the writer most decidedly dead. More » • (1606 views)

FaithReasonby Brad Nelson   8/31/14
The question that has always plagued my mind is, Shall God be real or shall god be a source of emotional satisfaction? Both are possible at the same time, of course.

Leftists and Islam

MarkSteynby Cato   8/30/14
Rotherham, UK.  A study in total capitulation.  •  It’s tempting to call the actions of the local luminaries that Steyn details in Rotherham cowardice, but that misses the point, I think.  The point is how to explain the acceptance of, indeed the affinity of Leftists for the outrages of Islam.

Lessons from the Otherness

Nightworldby Timothy Lane   8/30/14
F. Paul Wilson has written a large number of books, a substantial portion of them based on the notion of a secret history of the Earth that involves a struggle for control (as part of some cosmic game) between 2 alien entities, known as the Ally and the Enemy. More » • (1304 views)

PaternalUncertaintyby Enza Ferreri   8/28/14
When I work until late at night, just about the only TV programme left to watch afterwards is often The Jeremy Kyle Show. At first I watched it for its comic value, as dysfunctional couples and families shout at each other over non-existing problems More »
