How Great Thou Art!

Perhaps I posted these thoughts before.  I’m not certain about that.  My memory becomes a bit fuzzy at times.  Anyway, it does no harm to repeat them.  After all, truth is truth.  When I was a very little boy someone told that the sun was much bigger than the earth.  I looked up at that […]

Vibrations

I am not a physicist, theoretical or otherwise.  I have a hard time understanding Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and Quantum physics tends to put me in an absolute funk.  But even the greatest minds are incapable of putting it all together in a comprehensible whole.  They have been unable to come up with a theory […]

Freedom Ring!

My country, ’tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims’ pride, From ev’ry mountainside Let freedom ring! My native country, thee, Land of the noble free, Thy name I love; I love thy rocks and rills, Thy woods and templed hills; My heart […]

Have a Blessed Easter

Tomorrow we celebrate the resurrection of our blessed Lord and Savior.  At this time I have chosen to repeat some things I wrote before.  Please read and think about it. I have always appreciated the writings of C.S. Lewis.  I have paraphrased some of his arguments in the following paragraphs. We will never understand God […]

Faith of Our Fathers

    Some months ago I posted an article in defense of the Christian Faith.  Here I am reposting the article with some additions, subtractions and modifications.  I do this because to me, and I hope to you, it is the most important subject in the world.  I believe it a matter of life and […]

Truth

  “Quid est veritas?” said Pilate to Jesus. What is truth?  Is there such a thing as absolute truth? Many people, especially those of a progressive bent, deny that there is such a thing as objective truth and say that truth is a matter of perspective.  They insist that all truth claims should be recognized […]

The Origin of Life

(This post is essentially an extract from a much longer post that I published more than a year ago.  I believe it is important that we think about these things.  Where did we come from?  Where are we going?) In the third decade of the Twentieth Century, a few years following the cataclysmic event known […]

The Big Picture

My grandson Scott recently gave me a book by Sean Carroll entitled The Big Picture.  Dr. Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, and he is a highly respected scientist and writer in his field. This book devotes much of its content to a description of quantum field theory, the […]

In the Beginning

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” These are the first words in the Bible, and it is the bedrock of Judeo-Christian faith. For Christians, the first chapter of the Gospel of John stands along with Genesis 1:1. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in […]
