I tend to read in cycles. No not while riding my bike. Ok actually when I'm on the stationary bike I do read, but that isn't the point. I also don't read in generally less or more so much as I read different genres and subsets of books in cycles.

Please enjoy.

In the last part of the "I Owe You an Apology" series, The Creator Revealed, I followed a series of logical arguments to demonstrate that the Creator must be One and must have several characteristics ascribed to the God of the Bible. Before that I allowed Science and Logic to show that the Universe must have been created by a specific type of being. Today I want to focus on the Origin of Life. Of course this whole discussion is a bit of a moot point given the evidence for a Creator, but it is interesting to note the blind faith of atheistic scientists in excluding the possibility of a … [Read more...]
