Reading Time: 3 minutes The Holocaust everybody knows about is the one that happened in Nazi Germany eighty years ago. But there is another one that started with the arrival of Homo Sapiens on the planet and it has been ongoing ever since. The scope of this Holocaust is truly mind-boggling.

If God Wasn’t Good, How Would You Know? Skeptical Theism Revisited

Reading Time: 2 minutes Skeptical theism is the theist’s ultimate get-out-of-jail-free card that can extricate them from any seemingly impossibly incoherent position.

Deism and Existential Inertia Revisited

Reading Time: 8 minutes As many of you will know, I recently edited a book by Gunther Laird called The Unnecessary Science, a book that counters the claims of Aristotle, Aquinas and recently Ed Feser on Natural Law Theory, a particularly religious moral value system. The context of the piece below is that Gunther produced a piece for Arc Digital called […]

Kalam Underwritten by Science?

Reading Time: 3 minutes I wrote a, what I obviously think is fantastic, book on the Kalam Cosmological Argument a few years back. The sort of reviews I have enjoyed getting go something like this: 5.0 out of 5 stars  William Lane Craig really should read this book before he says anything else . . . Reviewed in the […]
