Recommended Reading on Euthanasia

Jul 6, 2011

Just as war has been declared against the unborn, so too there is an active campaign to bump off the elderly, the infirm, and many who simply are tired of living. Thus people are at risk at all ages of

Recommended Reading on Abortion

Jul 6, 2011

Arguably the most important moral issue of our day is the wholesale and wanton slaughter of the unborn. With some 100,000 unborn babies killed every year in Australia, and around 45-50 million a year worldwide, this is one of the

Euthanasia and the Nazis: Never Again

Nov 8, 2010

With euthanasia back on to the agenda thanks to the pro-death Greens, we need to recall the lessons of history. Without remembering the past we will be doomed to repeat its mistakes. And one of the biggest mistakes in human

Islam and Science

Jul 6, 2010

It is often claimed by Islamophiles that the Muslim world contributed greatly to science and learning. As but one recent – and rather silly – example, US President Obama has instructed the head of NASA to reach out to Muslims,

Readings in Science and Creation

Mar 9, 2008

The broad issue of the relationship between science and faith, and the more particular issue of the debate over creation and evolution are of course monstrously large topics, which are quite complex, multi-layered and of course very controversial.

Wheaton, Islam, Christianity and Truth

Dec 19, 2015

The ongoing saga of the hijab-wearing Wheaton College professor is not likely to go away anytime soon. Indeed, it seems to be escalating, with various sides becoming polarised on all this. The prof has now been suspended by the Christian

Christian Missions and Colonialism

Sep 1, 2015

There are plenty of objections which have been raised against Christianity over the centuries. One common complaint is that the history of Christian missions is really the history of oppression, imperialism, chauvinism, exploitation, Eurocentrism, and ugly colonialism.

This is standard

Promoting Paedophilia

Jul 8, 2014

The world has rightly been shocked over revelations that big name entertainers like Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile have been found guilty of horrible child abuse crimes. But sadly this is really just the tip of the iceberg it seems.

The Islamic Kingdom of Britain

Jun 9, 2013

I and others have been warning for years now that the once Christian West is quickly dissipating, with a muscular Islam easily overcoming the effeminate and spineless Christian churches. Everywhere we see Islam on the rise and Christianity on the

The Never Ending Story (of Tolerance)

Sep 12, 2012

Just yesterday I offered three cases dating from September 10 of how the militants are destroying our freedoms – all in the name of tolerance and diversity. Well, here it is a mere 24 hours later, and now I have

Beware Outward Appearances

Feb 21, 2010

Nearly a year ago a television event occurred which took the world by storm. When the episode was posted on the Internet the video clip was viewed by millions and millions of people within days. I refer to the day

How Global Jihad is Being Accomplished

Jan 12, 2010

We are all aware of the obvious means by which Islamists are extending Islam throughout the world, and how they are attempting to establish a universal caliphate. The use of terror is a major part of jihadist expansionism. Suicide bombers

A Tale of Two Men

Sep 22, 2008

Actually this is mostly the tale of one important man. But since I have discovered many parallels with his life and my own, I will use this opportunity to tell his story, along with bits of my own. This is

The New Inquisition

Apr 19, 2008

It is very risky business indeed to seek to cross the atheist/materialist/Darwinist camp. If anyone dares to question the conventional wisdom here, the inquisition immediately snaps into place, the storm troopers are unleashed, and the heresy trials begin.

Science is
