Dawkins ad nauseum

Robert Adair had posed a blog about Richard Dawkins, which those of you who are interested in the fellow (Dawkins) might like to read.As it happens, I include a number of friends of my children in my admittedly small stable of friends.  These are young 30-something people who are not particularly Christian.  One of them, however, recently posted a video of Dawkins reading letters from "Christians".  The language quoted is both ignorant and vile, and one is apparently supposed to assume that…See More

Logic and Materialism in Richard Dawkins The God Delusion

According to Richard Dawkins and most radical Atheists such as Ernst Haeckel, nothing is real except material things. Logic, particular principles and theories, which of these are material, what do they weigh, how long are they, wide, thick? So how is Dawson's Monism a valid perspective? That is the notion that Matter, material things are the only significant reality? Dawkins religion, which is not science, has no plausible, reliable foundation of truth or metaphysical reality. But from this…See More

Whence Knowledge?

Reading Paul's invectives against the wisdom of the world (e.g., 1 Cor. 1:18-25, 1 Cor. 3:18-20), one could almost read him as encouraging Christians to abandon reason for blind faith, to ignore…Continue
