Either truth is objective, universal, and independent of our personal opinions or it is not. If not, then it is no longer truth. For truth is that which exists above and beyond our preferences, tastes and desires. This is what
Great thinkers and writers often think and write about many great things – and a great many things. The noted Christian apologist and academic C. S. Lewis was one such person. Although he had his area of specialisation – English
Imagine a world without colour – only a thousand shades of grey. Imagine a world without music – only dull monotones. Imagine a world without poetry – only politicised prose. Imagine a world without genuine diversity – only compulsory conformity.
Home-schooling continues to rise and rise for millions of parents throughout the West as the state school system continues to erode. Far too often our schools are turning out moral miscreants and intellectual zombies who know everything about radical political
A half century ago America and much of the West was engulfed in the counterculture movement. It had other names, such as the hippy movement, the Woodstock generation, the cultural revolution, the peace and love generation, and the radical 60s.
I recently wanted to link to some of my listings of good books on apologetics, atheism and the like, but I noticed that the last time I wrote articles on those topics was quite some time ago. A bibliography I
When lunacy abounds – as it so much does in the West today – we need a restoration of reason and common sense. When so much of our collective leadership is afflicted with moral and mental illness, then we need
Forty years ago a very significant commencement address was given to the graduating class of Harvard University. It was delivered by one of the most important figures of last century, Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008). The Soviet dissident, author and historian did
There are a few truths you can count on when it comes to angry atheists: they are absolutely certain that there is no God, and they hate his guts. Indeed, it always amuses me to find that the folks who
Historian Jeremiah Johnstone asks us to imagine what life would be like if there was no Christ and no Christianity. Those with even a rudimentary grasp of history should not have to overly strain their imagination. It
The stories are as routine as they are shocking. Every day we read about victim’s rights being trashed as criminals get away with murder – sometimes quite literally. Lenient sentencing by liberal judges means we simply see crime escalating.
Life and death. Sex. Just a few of the massively contentious issues of our time. Whether speaking of abortion, eugenics, assisted suicide, pornography, homosexuality or transgenderism, these are the hard-core topics occupying the attention of so many today – both
Hmm, a contradiction here? An oxymoron? We know that the word ‘secular’ is synonymous with terms like non-religious, non-spiritual, non-church, temporal, worldly, etc. Secular is the opposite of sacred. ‘Sacred’ has to do with God, religion, spirituality, etc.
I confess. I was once an out and proud member of the 60s counterculture. Yep, I was once fully into the whole thing: the hippy scene, the New Left, the drug culture, the Woodstock era, the peace, love and rock
OK, another rather odd-sounding article. ‘You are writing an entire piece on quoting others?’ Well yes, I am. And there is a reason for it. You see, I get into trouble quite often when I quote folks, and I get
In Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign he used the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid.” That economics is important is true, but it is far from the whole picture. In the ideological and political realm, economics is just one part of
It was inevitable: the left warring against itself. When you have a whacko ideology filled with so much PC craziness and so many things that you can get offended by, sooner or later there was going to emerge some jarring
