Faith Removal

Militant Science & Apostle Krauss

by Regis Nicoll

. . . To Krauss's thinking, people who protest the harvesting and marketing of aborted babies' tissue are "anti-science" because those practices "could help save lives." It's a bit like calling those who opposed the harvesting and marketing of tissue "procured" by Josef Mengele as "anti-science." Anyway, religion is getting too much respect, and something's got to be done about it, so Krauss is calling on his fellow scientists to be militant in liberating "humanity from the shackles of enforced ignorance." As to who really needs to be unshackled, Krauss might want to take a long look in the mirror. . . .►►►

Marital Defense

An Interview with Ryan T. Anderson

by Marcia Segelstein

. . . the overarching thing is that we need to have a response to the sexual revolution. Gays and lesbians didn't break down the marriage culture. Redefining marriage is a consequence of fifty years of heterosexuals not living out the truth about marriage. Redefining marriage to exclude the norm of sexual complementarity only makes sense after fifty years of non-marital childbearing and no-fault divorce. So we now need to have not just a response to same-sex marriage, but a holistic response to the sexual revolution. How do we embody the truth about human nature, the truth about the family, the truth about marriage in a way that's appealing and attractive and exciting in our society? ►►►

Girl Watching

Raising Daughters in Troubled Times

by Marcia Segelstein

. . . Sax believes that the sexualization of girls at ever-younger ages is a critical part of the problem. Girls are bombarded with the message that revealing their bodies is both normal and expected. He relates the story of a ten-year-old girl who wanted to dress up as a French maid, complete with fishnet pantyhose, for Halloween. It turns out that the costume came in sizes for even younger girls. Such sexualization, Sax writes, "is about being an object for the pleasure of others, about being on display for others." Girls pretending to be sexy aren't being who they really are, and that's not healthy. . . . ►►►

You Gotta Believe

Atheist or Not, You Already Have More Faith Than You Realize

by James S. Spiegel

. . . You might say that your belief in the reliability of your senses is an article of faith. After all, it is something that you hold to be true without conclusive proof. Moreover, it is a conviction that has practical consequences for every moment of your waking life. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you conduct yourself according to this conviction that your senses are reliable. In short, you devoutly trust your senses. This is just one of the ways that all of us live by faith, regardless of what our particular worldviews happen to be. . . . ►►►

Capital Losses

Nietzsche on Losing English Morality

by Cameron Wybrow

Often one can learn something from authors with whom one disagrees. An author with whom I disagree, but from whom I have learned a good deal, is Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900). ►►►

French Lessons

Is Blasphemy Against Free Speech Worth Dying For?

by Michael Cook

. . . The real question is whether a commitment to Free Speech can bear the weight of being the lynchpin that holds society together. The terrorists are ruthless killers, but they are also prepared to die for their convictions. Are French devotees of Free Speech prepared to die for theirs? Will their lynchpin hold firm when put to the ultimate test? . . . ►►►

World War Sex

A Global Revolution Imperils Men, Women & Children

An Interview with Gabriele Kuby
by Benjamin J. Vail

In early April 2014, German author and sociologist Gabriele Kuby visited the Czech Republic to give a number of public presentations promoting her new book, The Global Sexual Revolution: The Destruction of Freedom in the Name of Freedom, recently translated into Czech (ed. and very recently into English). During her visit to Brno, I had a chance to interview Kuby about one of the most important issues of our time: the continuing sexual revolution that is leading not only to private lifestyle changes but also to a new legal understanding of sexuality and the family. Kuby warns that the global trend of "gender mainstreaming" threatens the fundamental understanding of our very human nature, with dire consequences for children, families, and society as a whole. . . . ►►►

No Progress Report

How Deafness to Wise Old Voices Distorts the Past, Present & Future

by Jason Morgan

. . . Our age's epistemology is now overwhelmingly Whiggish, thanks to an educational system that teaches people to see themselves as Prometheuses wresting enlightenment from the murky backwardness of the past and carrying it forward into the future. But the paradox of this self-styled heroism is that, the more people set their faces against the past, the more they fail to understand the present. They thus feel alienated from time and struggle blindly for increasingly abstract ideals that have neither antecedent nor context. Can anything be done about this ascendancy of all things Whiggish? Many people are dizzied by the pace of unexamined change in the world. Can those with temporal vertigo stop Whigging out and restore sanity to society? ►►►

Evo-Elitism

Darwinism's Missing Link to Civil Liberties

by Denyse O'Leary

. . . why are we more concerned about how old a politician thinks Earth is than whether that politician doubts that humans are special, based on "evolution"? It goes beyond life-and-death issues. U.S. millennials are among the groups most likely to believe that humans are not special and they are the group most likely to vote to curb free speech. That should not surprise us. ►►►

Love, Rhetorically

Using a Powerful Word Doesn't Mean Your Argument Is Logical

by Tom Gilson

Another Christian celebrity has forgotten to put on her thinking hat. Religion News Service reports that popular Christian author Jen Hatmaker has said this about gay marriage: "From a civil rights and civil liberties side and from just a human being side, any two adults have the right to choose who they want to love. And they should be afforded the same legal protections as any of us. I would never wish anything less for my gay friends." I read that on Facebook, and I decided it needed a bit of analysis. . . . ►►►

Stonewalled on Abortion

One Woman's Quest for Straight Answers from Public Health Organizations

by Terrell Clemmons

. . . Shouldn't women considering abortion be provided with this information [alarmingly high rates of such maladies as PTSD, eating disorders, depression, substance abuse, and suicide in post-abortive women]? Gill asks. No, insists Dr. Grimes, the abortionist. That would be "a very overt attempt to dissuade or discourage women from exercising their right to have an abortion." Apparently this is what passes in his world for medical ethics. . . . ►►►

Can We Talk?

It Is Crucial That We Put Our Minds to Contentious Issues

by James M. Kushiner

Society has never before been so divided on so many issues, including such things as abortion, sexual morality, marriage, sexual "identity," the use of fetal "tissue," "recreational" drugs, "science" (e.g., man-caused global warming and evolution), and various "social justice" concerns. When these issues are spoken of, the emotions on display are often intense. Plenty of people may take sides on these issues, but they rarely debate them intelligently. . . . ►►►
