  • Ancient Egyptian Astronomy Yields New Discoveries

    December 1, 2013

    A team of Finnish physicists and world culture experts has integrated astronomical research on a certain star stretching over three millennia to make new discoveries that have implications far beyond what they discerned.1 Specifically, the research demonstrates that ancient observers, by incorporating what they learned about the heavens into their belief systems, made measurements of such high precision that they can be used to solve major problems in present-day astrophysics.

  • Are We Random Boltzmann Brains?

    December 1, 2013

    Characters in sci-fi movies and novels routinely encounter alien life somewhere in the universe. The crew of the USS Enterprise deals with Klingons, Q, and the Borg while Luke Skywalker works with Chewbacca the Wookiee and Ewoks to defeat the evil Galactic Empire. Sometimes the aliens come to Earth, as in Transformers, where Optimus Prime and his cohorts join elite military personnel on Earth to defend humanity against an attack by other villainous robots. Lois Lane encounters Superman, the Krypton native who gains great powers from the solar system’s yellow Sun. Yet despite the diversity of sci-fi aliens, no filmmaker or writer seems to be aware of the one alien that troubles cosmologists as they wrestle to understand the nature of the cosmos: the Boltzmann brain.

  • JFK Assassination Plus 50: Reasoning to the Best Explanation

    December 1, 2013

    The most famous murder of the twentieth century and perhaps of all time was captured on an eight-millimeter home-movie camera. Abraham Zapruder, a woman’s clothing manufacturer, inadvertently filmed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, as the president’s motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. Zapruder’s silent, color movie lasting 26.6 seconds would become one of the most studied pieces of film in history. Still, various investigators of the assassination have come to different conclusions as to what the film actually reveals.

  • Lost in a Masquerade: Horizontal Gene Transfer Impersonates Common Ancestry

  • Mass Extinction Periodicity Design

    December 1, 2013

  • Mercury’s Bombardments Reveal Earth’s Habitability

    December 1, 2013

    Ancient battlefields do not readily offer evidence of what transpired in the heat of combat. Historians and scientists must construct scenarios from various lines of evidence, including obscure places, to learn what happened. In a similar way, sometimes scientists must search in the obscure places, such as the dark recesses of Mercury’s surface, for evidence of a different type of bombardment that ultimately exhibits evidence for Earth’s design.

    • General Apologetics
  • The Triune God Is Love

    September 1, 2013

    In traditional monotheism (classical Judaism, Islam, and Unitarianism), God is one being and one person. Or, philosophically, God is one What (essence) and one Who (person). Thus the one God is a single, solitary person. But this common conception of monotheism raises serious theological difficulties.
