Debating Evolution

Evolutionby Trevor Thomas   1/18/14
Recently, Answers in Genesis, the Christian organization devoted to teaching “the relevance of a literal Genesis to the church and the world,” announced an upcoming (February 4) debate between Ken Ham, founder and president of the Creation Museum, and Bill Nye of TV’s “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” More » • (2565 views)

Book Review: “Abraham Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life” by William Herndon and Jesse Weik

Kunk Fu Zoby Kung Fu Zu   1/17/14
I had heard about this book many years back, but had never seen it in bookstores. Maybe this was because most of the bookstores I frequented were in Asia. However using that miracle of the modern age, Kindle, I was able to download both volumes of this biography for free. In this review I will deal with the first volume. More » • (1759 views)

The Primal Bitch of Income Inequality

welfarestateby Glenn Fairman   1/16/14
Being an Economic Progressive apparently means rarely having to say you’re sorry. For even when the jig is up in some liberal Promise Zone fantasyland, you’re still the top vulture of the carrion food chain. More » • (2200 views)

Grace in Weakness

BigRockThumbby Glenn Fairman   1/16/14
“Blessed are the poor in spirit for they shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven” — Matthew 5:3  •  How counter-intuitive this statement is to the spirit of the world! Christ has not chosen the “winners” in the Lottery of Power to manifest Himself through. More » • (2620 views)

Thus Spake the Potheads

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/14/14
It’s starting to appear as if marijuana users have become the homosexual lobby of the chemically dependent. What do I mean? Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson could mention one sexual behavior (adultery) as disqualifying someone from the “kingdom of God,” but mentioning that “other” sexual behavior? More » • (2149 views)

Doctor Jekyll and Mister GLAAD

HydeThumbby Timothy Lane   1/13/14
I noticed that Turner Classic Movies recently presented a version of The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde, and it occurred to me that most people have no idea of what exactly the good doctor’s evil alter ego actually did. Stevenson never really said, no doubt reflecting the Victorian sensibilities of his readership. More » • (5786 views)

Establishing a U.S. State Religion

StateChurchby Fay Voshell   1/13/14
In direct contradiction of the First Amendment, which forbids the establishing of a state religion, the Obama administration is busily doing just that. Meanwhile, it is attempting forced conversion of the reluctant, all the while targeting Christians and Orthodox Jews as people who are continually violating the establishment of religion clause.

Of Burkas and Babes

moaishaby Glenn Fairman   1/13/14
Trolling through Drudge a day or so ago, I caught hold of a headline that piqued my curiosity entitled “Burka Babies.” Having an inquiring mind that is not immune to sensationalist headlines or the National Enquirer racks at the market, I bit on the following news story from Al Arabiya: More » • (3432 views)

Disconnect (2012)

DisconnectThumbby Brad Nelson   1/13/14
What could possibly go wrong with spreading your personal information, and pleading for intimacy, on a medium (the internet) that caters to some of the worst aspects of human nature? Disconnect is the story of three such bad experiences. More » • (1696 views)

Forget Christie; Let’s Talk about Big Fat Traffic Jams

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke   1/13/14
One unmentioned irony of the Chris Christie road-revenge scandal is that the powers-that-be finally found a traffic jam they didn’t like. Now, don’t get me wrong, having always lived in the NY metropolitan area and often having wanted to split a vein while in the midst of the NY/NJ road experience More » • (1590 views)

Human Excellence and Dependency: Who Built What?

go westby Glenn Fairman   1/12/14
It was not long ago that the zeitgeist of America was the Horatio Alger story, a patchwork of tales serving as the reigning motivational compass pointing towards individual success. It was the time of the Bootstrap Ethic: The notion that a man was limited only by his own zeal and perseverance in service to his lofty goal. More » • (1128 views)
