Please Be More Specific

Posted in Humor, Musings, Politics on September 30th, 2014

It strikes me as more than a little odd that the US Secret Service has provided such seemingly piss-poor protection to Obama, especially since he’s supposedly the most threatened POTUS is recorded history.

Secret Service questions whether or not Obama should be in the White House
Could You Be More Specific

It sometimes makes me wonder if the Secret Service doesn’t actually believe that protecting Obama from assassination is actually in the best interests of America.

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…
