All Science Is Theology

Posted in Musings, Philosophy, Religion, Society on February 7th, 2014

From Within CreationAll science is theology or, said in another way, theology is the only science, with each otherwise-named path of research merely being a sub-discipline of the greater course of study. The whole of we call the “sciences” is nothing more or less than Man’s attempt to discern the Divine’s will and how it was enacted upon Creation.

There’s no intrinsic conflict between between Science and Religion. Sir Isaac Newton, arguably the father of modern Western science knew that as did even the Muslim World’s Abū ʿAlī al-Ḥasan ibn al-Ḥasan ibn al-Haytham. The conflict between Science and Religion is a purely modern invention and a poor one at that.

To Judge Or Not?

Posted in Musings, Politics on February 3rd, 2014

thinking-apeWe are told by the Liberals and Progressive that we, the People must not to judge all Muslims by the actions of what they describe as a few lunatics; nor must we ever judge Blacks and Latinos by the violent criminality of what the Left says are a minority of their populations.  Yet, often in the very next breath,  these same Liberals and Progressive demand that  we  judge all legal gun owners by the actions of a tiny number of lunatics.

I’m failing to see the consistency of their logic…

Butterflies And Bullets

Posted in Musings on January 31st, 2014

Chaos ButterflyButterflies and bullets – There’s not much in common between the two in most people’s minds. Most people, however, are quite wrong because butterflies are a lot like bullets. Much like you’ll never hear the bullet that kills you, you’ll never see the butterfly that takes you and/or your carefully crafted predictions and plans out either.

That’s life, folks.

Chaos is life, life is chaos – or a deeper order that we cannot fully perceive. Either way, it’s a deterministic nonlinear system with a sensitive dependency upon far too many and too diverse and separated initial conditions for us to come even close to predicting what will happen with any certainty at all.
