Is the Bible automatically disqualified?

'Because the Bible says so, that's why!'  I can sympathize with the frustration the skeptic must feel when he encounters a Christian defending his convictions in this fashion.  It frustrates me too. Why would the Christian expect the skeptic to grant the Bible the same level of authority as … [Read more...]

If only those greedy CEOs didn’t make so much, the employees could make a better wage. Not really

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.

Where are Jesus’ descendants?
