I hate politics. The other people on my bus would probably be surprised to hear that, given how every morning they have to listen to me rant about how our weak-spined representatives can’t even stand up to the cosmetic surgery lobby, and every afternoon they have to listen to me rant about how Jane Hamsher [...]

The Spaghetti-Incident Principle

If you’ve ever cracked open the Bible, you’ve probably noticed that it’s full of things that everyone knows don’t actually happen, like firmaments and creationism and virgin births and miracle burning bushes. Fearful that people might use this as occasion to, you know, disbelieve in the Bible, creative Bible-believers have created the Message-Incident Principle: That [...]

Over in the USA Today, BioLogos bigwigs Giberson and Falk continue their ongoing mission to debase science. Their recipe for the “compatibility” of science and religion consists of two teeny-weeny modifications to the scientific method: 1.

Theotropism and Chinese Jews

Anti-evolutionist and friend of the blog David Klinghoffer has another gem this morning, coming up with a theory to explain why a Chinese friend of his converted to Judaism: [Maybe] God imprints a certain kind of religious preference, one of numerous possible imprints, on each person. This theory has a number of virtues. For instance, [...]

Poor Darrel Falk. Not only is he stuck being executive director of the ludicrous BioLogos project, but also his granddaughter has noticed the obvious parallels between the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and Jesus. This is great for us, however, as we get to read his “yes, we were lying about the tooth fairy, and [...]

Over in the Huffington Post, writer Kamran Pasha has landed the coveted “I’ve got a book to sell, and so I’ve been invited to write a poorly-argued essay about current events that will allow me to repeatedly plug my book over the course of several thousand words” slot. Today’s essay is all about how Angels [...]

don't know much biologos

If you’re a Christian (or a Jew), you’ve probably noticed that it’s hard to believe in both science and the Bible. Human Genome Project leader (and evangelical Christian) Francis Collins has noticed this too: After his best-selling The Language of God came out three years ago, Collins began receiving thousands of e-mails — primarily from [...]
