“Christians want to be under rather than over Scripture, yet we do not want to be anti-science. So what do we do with this apparent antinomy* between the book of Scripture and the book of nature?”  — Jud Davis Believe it or not, I don’t always have a science/faith book in progress. But, prior to […]

“America’s central position in the global energy system as a leading producer, consumer, and innovator ensures that markets are free and U.S. infrastructure is resilient and secure.”  — NSS Report, Dec. 2017 The idea of U.S. energy independence — or even dominance — and its role in our national security strategy is not new — […]

Another Year-End Top 10

Posted by on December 31, 2017 at 7:53 pm

In what has become something of a year-end tradition here at “A View from the Right”, my final post for 2017 is a “Top 10” of links (with associated excerpts) to posts from preceding years. (The first two even go back to 2010 and 2011, respectively.) The idea is to give readers — especially newer […]

A Concerned Plea to Scientists and Educators

Posted by on December 17, 2017 at 8:52 pm

“[Y]ou should not fool the laymen when you’re talking as a scientist…. I’m talking about a specific, extra type of integrity that is [more than] not lying, but bending over backwards to show how you’re maybe wrong, that you ought to have when acting as a scientist. And this is our responsibility as scientists, certainly […]

Previous installments of the “Snippets” series covered four chapters each. This one covers the six chapters that make up the (sort of) middle of the True Reason book. Simply put, they “offer arguments for the rational strength of the Christian worldview.” See any familiar names among the authors? Nine: “Reason in a Christian Context” (Peter […]

Amos 8 and a Total Eclipse of the Sun

Posted by on August 20, 2017 at 5:48 pm

“Usually there’s a big ball of light in the sky But now on this Day of the Mon Nothing I can see A total eclipse of the Sun” (with apologies to Bonnie Tyler and James Richard Steinman) I admit, I’m just not that into it. Chasing Monday’s eclipse, that is. I’m a science apologetics geek, […]

Three Questions on Creation, Angels, and Satan’s Fall

Posted by on August 13, 2017 at 10:01 pm

The other day, someone shared an interesting post in a Facebook group that I belong to. It posed some questions from someone named “Dr. Sherlin”, who I am unfamiliar with, but no one in our group commented on it. Sort of surprising, since the subject matter was pretty much on topic for the group. Well, […]
