Allie Beth Stuckey ‏on Christian persecution

We should not be surprised that so many today refused to use the term “Christian” in respect to Sri Lanka. This is the insanity of intersectionality at work. It refuses logic & views all situations through faulty definitions of “privilege.”

“Christian” is seen as privileged because it is linked to the West, to America’s founding, to conservatism & sadly to many uneducated social justicians, to white supremacism. These know nothing of actual Christianity.

Christianity (specifically the Prot Ref) did have MUCH to do with building the west & founding the US, and that’s a wonderful thing. That’s precisely why America, flaws & all, has been the incredible success it’s been. But white supremacy? Hmm…

I’d encourage anyone who sees Christianity as such to study who led the abolition of slavery. They weren’t just Christians-in-name-only; they were gospel-preaching followers of Jesus. Fast forward to the Holocaust & you will find the same in Bonhoeffer & Corrie Ten Boom.

Anyway— that doesn’t really matter, because those who insist upon using vague terms to describe the Sri Lanka attacks are view everything via an ahistorical, “social justice” lens that has nothing to do with reality. And this, Christians must get used to.

Christians will be pushed to the margins, demonized, etc. But we should take heart— the church thrives in the margins & always has. And nothing— no power here or elsewhere— can ever stop the power of the gospel.

Respected scientist says our existence is a finely tuned accident

Co-founder of string field theory and physicist Michio Kaku made waves last year — or at least seemed to — when it was reported that he’d proven the existence of God. The Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies quoted Kaku as saying, “I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. To me, it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.”

Reacting to that public comment, Kaku said: “That’s one of the drawbacks of being in a public sphere: Sometimes you get quoted incorrectly. My own point of view is that you can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God.”

“Science is based on what is testable, reproducible, and falsifiable,” Kaku says. “That’s called ‘science.’ However, there are certain things that are not testable, not reproducible, and not falsifiable. And that would include the existence of God.” He’s noted that discerning whether you live in a Matrix-style construct or not would be another such ‘non-falsifiable’ problem.

This, dear reader, is what sceptics and Atheists cling to when they refuse to make the final step.

  1. Scientist agree: The universe is “impossibly” finely tuned
  2. Can’t create an experiment that proves the existence of the entity (thing) who/that tuned it in a fashion that is testable and repeatable
  3. Ergo, there is no God (creator, first mover, etc)

No, it proves that science isn’t a suitable mechanism to prove the existence (or otherwise), of the “creator of everything”.

So why would the most intelligent, accomplished, and respected scientists not allow themselves another tool? Why do scientists believe that science measures everything inside of, outside of, or related to our universe?

Scientists (sceptics / Atheists) need to accept that science fails them.  And the proof God exists lies outside of science.

Best scientific explanation using science of our own existence?

DUMB LUCK

Governments know best

Same happened in New Zealand;  they tried to limit the population’s access to media, factual information, opinion, and – of course – the loonies with all the extreme ideas from all sides of the argument.

All other media are reporting though.  Why no violence then?

It appears the reasons behind government censorship are wholesome and sensible, but they fall away under scrutiny.  Indian media have been publishing the full details of those allegedly responsible all day.
