How long as it been since you rode in the back seat of a vehicle at night, and let the world go by?I'm not talking about you and four of your friends cramming in your cousins four door for a midnight McDonald's jaunt. I'm talking about a long comfortable slow ride... a take your time kind of ride. The kind of ride where it's the journey that counts. The kind when you see the sights of an evening in a neighborhood as though you were a child again - how long has it been?How many of you particularly enjoy the voyeuristic peeks into lit interiors of a strangers home, one after the other,...

The hardest question to answer is, "What is the meaning of life?" Sure, we can answer it with some well-thought out answer that we read in a philosophical book, but what is the real answer? And how do we find it? Does the bible hold the answer? Does a crazed activist trying to get us to believe in the 2012 scare have the answer? Will we ever know the real answer?
Maybe that's the answer... maybe the ability to have so many different answers IS the answer..
People are a strange creature.. we have the ability to complain, to talk, to waste resources, TO THINK!

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. -- I Timothy 4:3-4
Pro-gay theology is untrue.
I remember a time, way back in the '70s, when I had an ah-hah moment and it seemed obvious to me that the people around me -- especially my fellow Christians -- had somehow avoided the truth about homosexuality. Out of their in-bred squeamishness... Read More

Unlike physics and astronomy, in which unbiased observation directly contradicted religious teachings, for a long time progress in biology did not challenge old wisdom. Throughout the 16th and 17th centuries the work of biologist was limited to the classification of all known plants and animals into taxonomic groups. While their highlighted the commonalities living organisms shared, the belief that all living organisms had been created in their current form was so well rooted that no serious alternative had been proposed before...

The heated debate over the working of the universe, we have discussed so far, had little relevance outside the scientific and theological communities. Whether it was the sun or the earth at the center of the universe, or what laws falling bodies obeyed, it made no difference to people’s faith. The new discoveries diminished neither the splendor of the creation nor the greatness of the creator. For most people, religious teachings were about how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes.
This attitude still prevails... Read More

Standing upon the shoulders of giants, it was the British physicist Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727) who can be considered the true father of modern physics – based on solid mathematical models. Newton work evolved science in four different areas: his work of the nature of light, his laws of motion, his development of Calculus, and the laws of universal gravitation. Each of these works would have been considered a life time achievement and would have suffice to place him as one of the greatest scientists of all time. Newton... Read More

The world we live in currently, one would be very hard pressed to experience rational peace and genuine freedom. "Peace", is a rare and almost extinct commodity. It is a shadow in the memory of humanity, a mere moment in the blink of an eye that we seldom...
Nice piece Credo as usual. You mention in context at the end "for fear of making war with the Gods." The keystone of peace lies crumbling,simply because the 'Gods of war' reign supreme despite race, religion,etc. Hypothetically if religion didn't exist...
I have serious doubts about the reality of Christ, but I have no doubt that if he existed, he did not look the way as the image commonly depicted in the U S and the rest of the West does. As the early Christians made war on pagan civilizations and cultures,...
