Naturalistic evolution teaches that our sense of morality evolved

Imagine I gave you a pill that made you feel morally obligated to give me money… Kinda random but hear me out. After the pill wore off, what would you think of your moral conviction to give me money? Would you regret it? Question it? Probably both. That’s what moral conviction is if we’re simply […]

Somewhat Random Reflections on Knowledge

Somewhat Random Reflections on Knowledge

Here’s some somewhat random reflections on knowledge if you’re interested… How Can We Know Anything at All? Wow. That is a super big question. And it’s a question that some people are not asking at all. That’s problematic. And in some ways ignorant. However, others are asking that question but they’re asking it in a […]

What explains the contradiction of humanity?

What explains the contradiction of humanity?

What explains the contradiction of humanity? Hospitals and especially children’s hospitals are a testimony to the beauty and brokenness of our world. Humanity is capable of amazing feats structurally and scientifically. We build edifices and index illnesses. . We build this collectively in community. Because we are mightier together.

Can an outside hand reach into the fishbowl of our universe?

Can an outside hand reach into the fishbowl of our universe? Newton, a scientist that also happened to be a fish, was a keen observer of the ecology of the fishbowl.

We, as sentient and at least somewhat intelligent humans, exist. That’s not debated by most people. How, however, did we get here? Where or who did we come from? And if God created us, who or what created God?  Panspermia  Some have speculated that we got here through panspermia or even directed panspermia.[1] Panspermia is […]

Does the concept of justice even make sense today?

Does the concept of justice even make sense today?

Humans, I believe, want justice. I believe that is a natural and good desire that is innate within us. Where, however, does the concept of justice come from? How do we know what is right and what is not right? Does the concept of justice even make sense today? The theme of the day is, “Have […]

Truth

Truth is a shape sorter

There is a certain way the world is, whether we like it or not. I think of a shape sorter for example. There are certain places where things fit and certain places where they don’t fit. A square is a square and goes in a square hole, not in a triangle hole.[1] We could imagine […]

What we do matters.

What we do matters. And that’s good news.

Yesterday I posted a few thoughts about Matthew 16:27 which says “the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done.” For a lot of people that may seem very heavy and discouraging. For me, […]

10 Quotes from Jonathan Pennington’s book, Jesus the Great Philosopher

I appreciated Pennington’s book. He did a good job showing that “Christianity is more than a religion. It is a deeply sophisticated philosophy” (Jonathan T. Pennington, Jesus the Great Philosopher: Rediscovering the Wisdom Needed for the Good Life, 159). Here are 10 quotes that stuck out to me: “When we try to live without knowledge of physics […]
