Jesus Christ is Lord of All History

In the wake of the Obergefell opinion of the Supremes, several “Christian” Colleges have already caved in in order to avoid any and all persecution from the sodomites who are controlling our land. They haven’t even considered fighting the evil; instead they have compliantly changed their policies to accommodate sodomite unmarriage. Baylor University in Texas, Hope College of Holland, Michigan, and Belmont University of Nashville as well as Notre Dame University have now approved benefits Read more […]

July 4th, What is Independence About?

When my granddaughter Megan was 8 years old and just completed 2nd grade, her mom asked her about the Fourth of July and if she knew what it was about. Megan said it was about fireworks.  Pressing the issue further, it became apparent that Megan had been taught absolutely nothing about July 4th or American independence. My daughter called me and asked if I would be willing to spend some time with Megan and teach her about American independence and the history of our nation. A couple of days later, Read more […]

Facts and Fictions of History

What is history? Is it simply a record of past events, or is it more than that? Is it true? Can it be false? Is it open to interpretation? All of these questions are important and relevant to the discussion. The primary thing to remember when reading or studying history though, is that no one individual can claim to have the authoritative angle on it. Just as police do not (or should not) rely on a single witness to re-construct a crime, so historical events cannot be understood properly by reading Read more […]

Does History Repeat Itself?

History is unpredictable. So says Nassim Taleb in his book, The Black Swan. This may seem to be a paradoxical statement at first because history, by definition, is an attempt to explain events after the fact. “Of course,” most astute readers would say, “history is unable to be predicted for the simple reason that it is not in the business of predicting, but of recording and analyzing.” Perhaps, but this misses Taleb’s point, which is, that “these [historical] events were unexplainable, Read more […]

Illinois Considers Statewide Gun Ban

Illinois State Senate President John Cullerton, a Democrat from Chicago, is trying to push through a bill that would make just about any firearm in the hands of civilians illegal. Writing for Breitbart, Warner Todd Huston stated that even antique guns would be outlawed:  “The Illinois State Rifle Association reports that Cullerton’s bill will ban pump action shotguns, semiautomatic pistols and rifles, and even antiques rifles like the M-1 Garand, the rifle used by U.S. troops in World War II.

The Pyramids, the President and the De-Evolution of Intelligence

I’ve long since come to realize that I ask too many questions. That seems to be the consensus. Too many questions for the comfort of other people. Too many questions probably for my own good. Of late, I’ve been thinking about evolution theory. It’s far from proven in my reckoning. The gist of course is that humans have developed — evolved — from lesser life forms to become the intelligent species that we are today. With that idea comes the notion that we should be getting smarter by Darwinian Read more […]

The Star Spangled Banner is Hard, Yo

This question was asked (and answered) recently by ABC News: “Why is the Star Spangled Banner so hard to sing?” I found the article to be interesting on its own, but also thought it identified common problems many moderns have with “old things” in general. With the current love affair modern man has with secularism (meaning, the present only, not noticeably concerned with either the past or the future), it is not too surprising to learn that many pop and rock singers find the National Anthem Read more […]
