Addressing a common atheist objection: "I didn't get a good answer to my question about God, so He doesn't exist"
Reblogged from Eternity Matters: This comment from an atheist on the epic Richard Dawkins / Wendy Wright post* represents a common objection of skeptics: My troubles began when I was being prepared for my first communion. I asked our chaplain “who moved the stone” since the Gospels are contradictory. He could not give me a […]
I have heard it asserted by skeptics that God was a tool invented by someone or a group of someones in an effort to control the masses. I’m not sure this makes much sense to me, it never has. It’s a great ‘what-if’ story, but it’s little more than speculation. That doesn’t make it a […]
Despite multiple surveys already being done on the issue (by pollsters more prestigious and reputable than I) of holiday greeting preferences, I conducted a survey of local shoppers for their preference. Although the distribution of participants is localized to my surrounding area I think it serves as a valuable barometer nonetheless due to the overall […]
Is it reasonable for Atheists to require a standard of evidence or proof from Theists for the existence of God (or veracity of Christianity) to reach the level of undeniability? The more time I spend on the internet the more I find Atheists assign a threshold of evidence for God that they give nothing else. […]
I only know one group of people who would even have a question like this come to mind. The “compassionate” liberally minded politician with an enlightened sense of social justice. I don’t like the idea of social justice. It presumes one demographic of people is so down trodden they need someone to step in on […]
For all the protest from Atheists that a place such as an eternal hell exists, has it occurred to them that hell serves a good? It brings justice to those who commit evil. Is that really a bad thing since I don’t think I’ve heard anyone complain that murderers, rapists, and child molesters might be in […]
Who doesn’t love statistics? I sure do. What statistic do you find really interesting? What about one that you found shocking the first time you heard it?
From my family to yours, have a happy and meaningful Thanksgiving. Enjoy some facts about turkeys! Interesting turkey fact of the day: 100% of farm-raised turkeys are artificially inseminated due to their sexually-prohibitive size.
By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee […]
Appeasement has never fostered peace.
The first time I was told by someone that they were glad to see I don’t censor or moderate dissenting comments here I was shocked to hear it was common. I was first told this by Atheists. They said it was common for other Christian bloggers to delete or not allow their comments even if […]
My cousin has decided to move out of his apartment…today. He left a note. Thanks Dude; HAD TO Leave -DAVE
I’ve often thought of getting a vanity license plate. Unfortunately anything I’ve thought of won’t fit on a plate in my state due to character limitations. But some people have no problem coming up with something clever. They send their idea into the state and it goes though a revue process to determine whether it […]
Well, that’s what one professing liberal TV comedy writer says. Granted, he was likely being facetious. But it wouldn’t surprise me if he was confused. I have yet to meet an abortion defender who actually knows that according to science — embryologists and biologists, not priests and ministers — human life begins at conception (one […]
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) has released its preliminary report surveying its members views about global warming. The survey did not find the consensus so often boasted by climate change alarmists. Here are a few interesting points from the summary: Only 89% of members of the AMS believe the Earth is warming (not 97% as often […]

I ran across this video while browsing my Facebook feed. It’s pretty intense. I’d like to read your thoughts.
Have you ever wondered where in the human body our soul is located? Not me. Not until someone asked. Maybe because it doesn’t sound like the right kind of question, like asking how much the color blue weighs. Someone asked “how does God attach the soul to the fetus, and when does He do it?” […]
Is it unAmerican of me to say I prefer these logos to the ones we have? All the logos can be found HERE. What do you think?
Every so often someone will make some noise about how the greedy CEOs make too much and the workers don’t make enough. If people would only do the math themselves, they might not repeat this vacant charge. To begin with, the median CEO salary in the US is only $750,000. Usually when people think of a […]
Many of the same men responsible for, and who ratified, the Constitution, specifically the first amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the […]
God loves the sinner but hates the sin is a common expression in many Christian circles. But is it true? Where does this saying come from? Though anyone is welcome to add their two cents in on this, it is primarily an in-house discussion. It might be more fun for skeptics to watch us Christians […]
Reblogged from The Matt Walsh Blog: Seriously, it hurts. Stop it, will ya? Yesterday I walked by a church and the pastor barreled out of the door, ran into the street, screamed “BIBLE!” and chucked it right at my head. Well, that didn’t LITERALLY happen. But he did say, “good afternoon, God bless,” which is […]
I don’t know how many people are familiar with the story of the man who thinks he’s dead and cannot be convinced otherwise. Here’s a short version of this: A man is convinced he is dead. His wife and kids are exasperated. They keep telling him he’s not dead. But he continues to insist […]
