The Heavens Proclaim the Glory of God

In his Reflections on the Psalms, here is how C.S. Lewis described Psalm 19: "I take this to be the greatest poem in the Psalter and one of the greatest lyrics in the world." The psalm begins, The heavens proclaim the glory of God.     The skies display his craftsmanship.  Day after day they continue to … Continue reading The Heavens Proclaim the Glory of God

The Peculiar Planet Known as Uranus

The favorite planet of every middle school boy, right? While astronomers pronounce the planet’s name with the accent on the first syllable, the planet gets a lot of giggles at the expense of the many who place the accent on the second syllable. But, for a moment, let’s move beyond the planet’s name and try … Continue reading The Peculiar Planet Known as Uranus

The Devil’s Delusion

I’m bouncing back & forth between Stephen Myer’s ‘Return of the God Hypothesis’ and David Berlinski’s ‘The Devil’s Delusion.’ Myer is a professed Christian.

It … Continue reading The Agnosticism of Science

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge." Psalm 19:1-2 The biblical view of creation is not in conflict with science; rather, it is in conflict with any worldview that starts without a creator. Our vast galaxy, … Continue reading The Universe is Telling of God’s Glory

Why is there Something Instead of Nothing?

The Christian graduate student organization I was a part of at Texas Tech University invited Dr. Michael Strauss to speak in 2015. I was given the privilege of sitting down with him over lunch and visiting with him personally. It was dialogue that strained my intellect, to say the least. I continue to correspond with … Continue reading Why is there Something Instead of Nothing?
