Stomping on Solzhenitsyn's Legacy

Has Russia truly reformed since the public demise of the USSR? This makes one wonder. Honoring Josef Stalin with Moscow posters would be like Germany putting up posters of Hitler, which Germany would likely not dream of doing. Stalin holds the title of the second worst mass-murderer known to history, behind only Mao. Hitler comes in third.

Give to Caesar what is Caesar's; Give to God what is God's

Christians are commanded to give to Caesar what is Caesar's. But who is Caesar in America? I submit for consideration that until formally revoked, our Caesar is not a person or group of people but rather our Constitution. The human element of our government is to serve, not rule this "written Caesar." Therefore the federal government only has the right to demand from us that which is reconcilable with this document. Above all, however, we are to give to God what is God's, and he is sovereign over all earthly rulers. What belongs to him supersedes all else.

Spurgeon Exposes a Double Standard (to Christians about Darwinists)

"You are not to be dogmatic in theology, but for scientific men it is the correct thing. You are never to assert anything very strongly; but scientists may boldly assert what they cannot prove, which may demand a faith more credulous than any we possess." -Charles Spurgeon

Scientism for Kids: An Indoctrination Music Video

Rudolf Carnap, the late logical positivist, is quoted at the beginning of "Science is Real," a music video intended for children's instruction and used in some classrooms. Kids are evidently supposed to listen to the wisdom of Carnap, never hearing that logical positivism has been veritably destroyed as a legitimate epistemology. Bursting forth from the corpse of logical positivism is scientism, the starring system that children are supposed to have embedded in their minds via the vehicle of the video's annoyingly catchy tune. During the video, the viewer is told that it's OK to like the "stories" about angels, unicorns, and such, but back in the land of reality, science is what gives us facts. So, the child has just been told that facts are only found through the scientific method, and everything else is just a quaint tale (never mind the very real and factual laws of logic, the real and factual existence of numbers, etc.; none of these are empirically testable). This grammar school fact-value split deals a devastating blow to a child's intellectual and spiritual development. Parents, please investigate what your children are being taught in school. Indoctrination is real.

Humorous side comment regarding "Science is Real":
"The science people apparently forgot to consult with the creative people." -- Justin Geis, my husband and discoverer of this video.
