The Worldview Collision Behind the Bathroom Wars

The Worldview Collision Behind the Bathroom Wars

I’m asking still why the gender wars erupted so suddenly in our culture, and what’s motivating the drive to redefine gender. Yesterday I said it had a lot to do with ontology. What does it mean actually to be male or female, and where’s the right place for those decisions to be made? The obvious answer all along has been that it depends on a person’s genitalia, and when the nurse says, “It’s a girl!” or “It’s a boy,” it’s…

Ten Turning Points: Wrap-up

Ten Turning Points: Wrap-up

From the series, Ten Turning Points That Make All the Difference Ten turning points have made all the difference—not just for some religion, not just for some people, but for all of reality. It’s time now to wrap up this series with a summary. This has been a series with a mixed purpose. I had been wanting to summarize the story of history viewed through the lens of its most crucial events. I ended up doing it with a small…

“Science Says The Universe Has No Purpose” — Lawrence Krauss

“Science Says The Universe Has No Purpose” — Lawrence Krauss

Lawrence Krauss’s book A Universe From Nothing was panned about as effectively as any publication I’ve seen, when David Albert published his review in the NY Times Sunday Book Review. That was on March 22. A Google search on “Krauss nothing” returns dozens of other negative reviews. Just to show that even great criticism has its limits, the LA Times published an opinion piece by Krauss on April 1. (The date is fitting.) I don’t think it’s too late now…

How Not To Argue Against Evolution

How Not To Argue Against Evolution

There are good arguments against naturalistic evolution, the belief that all species developed through unguided random variation and natural selection.[1. … and some other essentially statistical processes like genetic drift] There are also bad arguments. There are some that are so bad they do not qualify as arguments at all. Here are some things I’d really rather never hear anyone ever say again: If we descended from the apes, why are there still apes? Evolutionary theory does not require that…

Ten Turning Points: God In the Flesh

Ten Turning Points: God In the Flesh

From the series, Ten Turning Points That Make All the Difference God came to earth as a human. There is much mystery in that. Recently I looked at how it was possible for God and man to subsist together in one person. That question has an answer, but that answer could never tell the whole story. Today I will take an all-too-brief look at why he came. I explored this some time ago in a series where I said, He…

Ten Turning Points: God’s General Revelation

Ten Turning Points: God’s General Revelation

From the series, Ten Turning Points That Make All the Difference God is a relational God, a Trinity from all eternity, who has put relationships at the center of his creation. He is a God of glory, and a God of truth and of justice, as we have seen earlier in this series. He has never failed to have a revelation of himself in his creation, especially to us whom he created in his image. From before the creation of…

In His Image: Working and Creating

In His Image: Working and Creating

From the series, Ten Turning Points That Make All the Difference Genesis 1:26-31 says, Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him;…

Has Science Disproved Christianity?

Has Science Disproved Christianity?

A talk delivered on February 23, 2011: “Has Science Disproved Christianity?” I look at four common objections that some atheists/skeptics tell us “science” makes against Christianity, and show that either they do not come from science at all, or else they misunderstand Christianity. This is a non-technical talk for general audiences, loosely based on a chapter from Timothy Keller’s The Reason for God. (PDF Notes available for download.)
