What has this year been to us? What has it brought us? What have we become during the course of the last year? It’s been quite the year to say the least. I wanted to take this opportunity to encourage us to remain firm and stay the course even if we discover that we have in our midst misguided brethren enamored with Egyptian delusions, inviting us to join the revelry around an idol of their own fashioning. I want to encourage us to hold fast to the truth and to the words of God which we were taught, living words that remain forever. These words are...Read More

It is a standard motif in Western (Cowboy) novels and movies. A cowboy is shot, and before healing can begin, the bullet must be removed. Once the projectile is obtained, the wound is sterilized and cauterized. Soon, the Cowboy is back on his feet, ready to take on the bad guys. Western Culture has a similar scenario that plays out repeatedly. In this analogy, the bullets are Muslim attacks. The “bad guys” are the Muslims themselves. Most of us from the West, unfortunately, have short memories and little historical awareness. Our “enemy” in the 20th Century, at least in our...Read More
The teleological argument is the argument that the universe appears to be fine tuned for the presence of life. For example, the cosmological constant of the universe is fined tuned so that if it were altered by 1 part in 10120, the universe as we know it would not exist. That number is incomprehensibly large. For comparison, the volume of the known universe is 3.57×1080 m3. Scientists consider something as impossible if the odds of it happening are less than 1 in 1050. The cosmological constant is a billion billion billion billion billion billion billion times more finely tuned than that. The odds...Read More
Why are there two Houses of Congress? The simplest answer is that the House of Representatives was to represent the People, and the Senate was to represent the States. The Connecticut Compromise was the plan that eventually became part of the Constitution. Two Senators from every State, selected by the Legislatures thereof, every six years, with staggered terms. Of course, things went awry. People were electing representatives to their state legislatures based on national issues. If there was a split between a bicameral state legislature, no Senator would be elected. People assumed that Senatorial elections were bought and paid...Read More
