A region born secular: Nature, spirituality, and secularity in the Pacific Northwest

Reading Time: 7 minutes “I’m Jeremy. I’m 30. I have a little business here. I do, like web development and stuff, and lots of different work.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Research from the University of Tokyo has “provided the first empirical evidence that simple biological molecules can lead to the emergence of complex lifelike systems” as they created an RNA molecule that “replicates, diversifies, and develops complexity, following Darwinian evolution.” This is the holy grail of naturalism—abiogenesis—not the diversification of life itself but the start […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes This comment was left on a thread a few weeks ago: John, why dispute these facts and not go right for the miracles?

Supernaturalism

Reading Time: 3 minutes I posted the other day about motivated reasoning and eric commented as follows: It’s possible to ‘dispassionately argue’ but still be engaging in motivated reasoning. I just don’t think that’s really the case here. What that would look like is: let’s say Jonathan accepted pretty much every non-christian account of an unsubstantiated miracle, but used […]
