Hi All What happened in Orlando in the early hours of Sunday morning was tragic and terrible. It is the worst mass shooting in American history. The last two nights I have found myself awake staring at the ceiling in my bedroom overwhelmed with thoughts and looking for answers. The loss of life and implications of this […]
Interesting article. A lot of it was over my head but it is always nice to re-confirm infighting and disagreement among naturalists. Scientists dont have the corner on truth. Science is a term broadly used today to mean “truth” (scientism). This is false however as science is merely a methodology that provides raw data. Scientists are humans who have just as many biases and dogmas as any joe on the street. The author notes how “evolution” has been used by scientists as a method of gaining power and advancing political agendas throughout recent history. On a side note, if only physical explanations of human consciousness and behavior are available (as naturalism postulates), then I would like the author to offer an alternative-more plausible option than evolutionary psychology.
The format did not turn out great because I took it from a word document and I am too lazy to re-format it right now. -Preface- Jones, your email to me has had me in deep thought for the last month or so. Beyond that, I have been interested in the differences between LDS and […]

First of all, the term “pro-choice” is a euphemism for a practice that encourages the taking of defenseless unborn lives. Second of all, just because something is legal, it does not make it moral. There are plenty of legal yet immoral things that we have the choice to do. We all know people on both […]
The Argument From Reason Ironically, if Naturalism and Materialism are true then all knowledge, reason, and truth is illusory. In other words, if naturalism or materialism is true, we could never know it. Two of my favorite arguments for the existence of God are The Moral Argument and The Argument From Reason. They both hit […]
