An Introduction to Atheist Delusions (Part 2 of 2)

Published on November 2, 2014 By sirrahc

“With impressive erudition and polemical panache, David Hart smites hip and thigh the peddlers of a ‘new atheism’ that recycles hoary arguments from the past. His grim assessment of our cultural moment challenges the hope that ‘the Christian revolution’ could happen again.”  — Richard John Newhaus, former EIC at First Things Continuing from last week, […]

An Introduction to Atheist Delusions (Part 1 of 2)

Published on October 26, 2014 By sirrahc

“Few things are so delightful as watching someone who has taken the time to acquire a lot of learning casually, even effortlessly, dismantle the claims of lazy grandstanders.”  — Stefan Beck, New Criterion If you thought from this post’s title that I was going to enumerate several “delusions” of the “new atheists”, then I am […]

Response to a Skeptic about Biblical Cosmology, part 2: Geocentrism and Bad Hermeneutic

Published on March 9, 2014 By sirrahc

  A couple days ago, I published Part 1 of my response to a skeptic regarding biblical cosmology. I covered a couple major points and, hopefully, demonstrated that not all Christians interpret the creation passages the same. Furthermore, I think I showed how important is careful hermeneutic, and that it reveals a harmony of God’s […]

Response to a Skeptic about Biblical Cosmology, part 1: Big Bang and Creation Day 4

Published on March 7, 2014 By sirrahc

Look what I found! Another apologetics-oriented exchange from several years ago (2005). It was in the comments of the blog over at Stand to Reason (aka STR, www.str.org). Unfortunately, it is one of those where I only preserved my response(s) and not the other person(s) initial comments. (So, technically, this is only half of the […]

Biblical Inerrancy and the Resurrection

Published on March 30, 2013 By sirrahc

“[A]nd if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.”  (I Cor. 15:14) Despite the title, I’m not actually going to delve too deeply into the whole inerrancy issue in this post. In fact, I’m not even going to get into detail about the evidences & arguments for […]

Why Christian Apologetics?

Published on May 6, 2012 By sirrahc

I came across this the other day and decided to share it…. Readers of this blog will recognize that some of what I write about in the science & religion areas can be characterized as “Christian apologetics” (from the Greek word apologia, which loosely means ‘giving a defense’). Not every Christian recognizes the need for […]

Young-Earth / Old-Earth Creationist Exchange, Part 3 of 3: A Literal Adam and Death Before the Fall

Published on January 21, 2012 By sirrahc

In this final installment, ‘Jeff’ and I returned to Eden and the subject of Adam (along with Eve, this time). As I recall, he expressed his appreciation that I didn’t give any credence to the ability of purely naturalistic processes to “create” the first life or the diversity of life we see now and in […]

Young-Earth / Old-Earth Creationist Exchange, Part 2 of 3: The Days of Creation and Evolution

Published on January 19, 2012 By sirrahc

A couple days ago, I started this series about my Facebook discussion with ‘Jeff’, a Young-Earth Creationist. The Young-Earth vs. Old-Earth dialog in general involves important worldview & spiritual issues, so it can be quite frustrating when the “other guy” doesn’t seem to understand or accede a point or perhaps mischaracterizes your view. Many such […]

Young-Earth / Old-Earth Creationist Exchange, Part 1 of 3: Bellybuttons and the Appearance of Age

Published on January 17, 2012 By sirrahc

One of the issues covered in this blog is the whole Creation/Evolution/Design debate and related topics. In my writing in this area, I occasionally make some statement to indicate that I am neither a Theistic Evolutionist nor a Young-Earth Creationist, when it comes to theories about the beginnings of the universe, Earth, diversity of life, […]
