Teenagers: Statistics Gone Wrong

 

Eddie Cochran’s Teenage Heaven define the goals
of Adult Teenagers today

In 1959, Eddie Cochran published and sang a song, “Teenage Heaven” in which he defined what should be the goals of all teenagers: home with a pool, private phone, no restrictions and Dad paying all the bills. Today that is a reality for many who are little more than adult teenagers {never grew up}. Continue reading “Teenagers: Statistics Gone Wrong”

Eugenics is the True Methodology of Evolution

Evolution exists because of tolerance of its
Logical Fallacies that excuse its practice-Eugenics

The above graphic, a quote by Richard Dawkins, is suppose to quiet all opposition to evolution; however, it commits the logical fallacy of conflation to destroy its very legitimacy. While gravity is a theory because the actual force is unknown, its effects are measurable and repeatable {you do this ever time you weigh yourself}. However, evolution is a past event; therefore, it is not repeatable nor can it be measurable which removes it from the realm of science. Evolution is in fact a context for discoverable facts; however, it has failed to even fit the facts that it claims. Evolution survives because it carries the force of government being the only legitimate view of creation allowed to be taught in schools. In other words, evolutionary theory survives because of government suppression of free speech of opposing contexts of the available facts.

Vulgarity: Expression of Equality

Vulgarity, and thus this emoji, have become
the ultimate expression of equality today

When Apple demonstrated their animojis at their recent keynote event by using the above emoji {first introduced by Google}, they were acknowledging the commonality of vulgarity in everyday language. this emoji did not cause vulgarity in everyday language; however, it did acknowledge that vulgarity was wide spread and thus ready for a graphic expression. It is probably one of the more popular emojis in use today. Why? Continue reading “Vulgarity: Expression of Equality”

Jonah: A Study in Ridiculousness

Turning Jonah into a caricature
robs this book of its truths

No other Old Testament book elicits more repudiation in the veracity of the Bible than the book of Jonah. The standard belief that a man is swallowed by a fish, survives and then preaches repentance to a very powerful militaristic nation that turns to God is beyond the belief of modern man; as well it should for that is not really the truth of this book. Continue reading “Jonah: A Study in Ridiculousness”

Discernment Fallacies

This is how Christians are taught Discernment
This confusing process discourages true growth

What is discernment? Following the first Law of Logic, Law of Identity, this question must be clearly answered or any discussion becomes meaningless, confused and degenerates into a morass of rules and platitudes. The Free Dictionary defines discernment as, “The act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment.” Notice the problem with this definition? Continue reading “Discernment Fallacies”

Racism: The Myth of Our Day

This common platitude expresses ignorance
of both the Bible and common observation

Racism is the catchphrase of the day being touted as the major sin and the basis for justifying incredible personal and social violence that has not been seen in America since the heyday of the 1960s. According to Merriam-Webster, racism is “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” The above graphic succinctly expresses the ignorance permeating preventing rational discussion of this issue. The problem is violation of the Law of Identity of Logic. Racism demands that there be at least two different races; there is only one race. Continue reading “Racism: The Myth of Our Day”

The Arbitrariness of a God Who Can Do Anything

Christians Teach that God Can Do Anything
Do You Know What That Really Means?

We are all guilty of blurting out trite ditties without giving them much thought believing that these little sayings can end all discussion on a topic. The unfortunate aspect is that one does not take the time to fully explore the implications of such a saying. The phrase taught by Christians and sung in a chorus by children, “God Can Do Anything But Fail,” is such a trap of logic and belief. Continue reading “The Arbitrariness of a God Who Can Do Anything”

Politics: Knowledge of Ignorance

World War II (WWII) Gave Us Good Movies and
Bad Propaganda: Knowledge of Ignorance

The events in Charlottesville, VA, tragic as they were, have so inflamed and polarized the political process in America that the only creed that appeals to people is the knowledge of ignorance. Americans have abrogated the correct definition of terms for propagandist definitions that have little relationship with the original use of the terms. The purpose: to quash perceived opposition with righteous indignation {self-imposed religion}. Continue reading “Politics: Knowledge of Ignorance”

Soul Winning Done Wrong

Soul Winning Usually Taught as a Technique:
Salesmanship Rather Than  Work of the Spirit

Soul winning, as it is usually called in evangelical circles, by its very title takes a non-Biblical approach to presenting the Gospel of Christ. Unfortunately, it relies on salesmanship techniques to obtain the lost’s attention, convince them of the truth and secure their willingness to say “the prayer” inviting Christ into their heart.  None of these approaches are taught in the Bible and thus are doomed to failure. Continue reading “Soul Winning Done Wrong”

Friendships: Helping on the Journey

Friendships Reduced to the Basest
Sentimentality Becomes Meaningless

Friendships are one of the most difficult relationships to define but the easiest to recognize; especially in modern life. Wikipedia defines friendship as, “a relationship of mutual affection between people”. The above graphic sentimentalizes friendship into a meaningless emotionalism. In essence, friendship becomes the means by which you either succeed or fail on your journey through life. Continue reading “Friendships: Helping on the Journey”
