The Intellectual Bankruptcy of the New Atheism

I think I am very close to concluding that this whole “New Atheism� movement is only a passing fad—not the cultural watershed its purveyors imagine it to be, but simply one of those occasional and inexplicable marketing vogues that inevitably go the way of pet rocks, disco, prime-time soaps, and The Bridges of Madison County. This is not because I necessarily think the current “marketplace of ideas� particularly good at sorting out wise arguments from foolish. But the latest trend in à la mode godlessness, it seems to me, has by now proved itself to be so intellectually and morally trivial that it has to be classified as just a form of light entertainment, and popular culture always tires of its diversions sooner or later and moves on to other, equally ephemeral toys.

Salt Tyrants

America's tyrants have now turned their attention to salt, as reported in the Washington Post's article "FDA plans to limit amount of salt allowed in processed foods for health reasons" (April 19, 2010). Why do food processors put a certain quantity of salt in their products? The answer is the people who buy their product like it and they earn profits by pleasing customers. The FDA has taken the position that what the American buying public wants is irrelevant. They know what's best and if you disagree, they will fine, jail or put you out of business.

Evidence for the Early Dating of the Gospels

How do we know what we know about Jesus? How can we be sure that we can trust what we have been told about Jesus? It's important for us to determine whether or not the documents we know as the "gospels" are, in fact, true eyewitness accounts of the life of Jesus Christ.

Why the Humanities Matter

Before the next wave of “school reform� gets too far along, Christians need to inject the classical and Biblical view of the nobility of humankind, as the image-bearers of God, and the importance of the humanities in helping us to discover our full potential in serving God and our fellow men.
