A Question of Offense
A Question Of Offense

This is a very basic and very valid question. Perhaps that is why no Liberal or Progressive will ever truly answer it if asked by an American.

Please Be More Specific

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.
