Essential Salvo Articles on Science & Faith

science-faith 36nicollFaith Removal Militant Science & Apostle Krauss by Regis Nicoll

. . . Francis Bacon, Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, and Isaac Newton were all men of faith whose faith gave them hope that scientific knowledge was attainable. adidas riot 5 femme Because the universe was the product of an Intelligence that made it intelligible to intelligent beings, they had confidence that man could discover something of the true nature of nature by careful observation and experimentation. Kepler put it this way: “The chief aim of all investigations of the external world should be to discover the rational order and harmony which has been imposed on it by God and which he has revealed to us in the language of mathematics.” . . .

36rossETI In the Sky What the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligent Life Means for Us by Hugh Ross

. . . In many respects, SETI research is a waste of time, money, and talent. However, these latest SETI efforts are yielding greater insights into and appreciation for just how many plans, preparations, and preliminary steps—especially the carefully orchestrated introduction of certain forms of non-intelligent life—are needed to make possible a narrow time window during which an intelligent living species can exist on a planet, and how many more plans, preparations, and carefully orchestrated steps must be taken to enable such a species to launch and sustain a high-technology civilization. . nike air max 2015 indonesia .

34cavanaughCosmic Seer Georges Lemaître, the Catholic Priest Behind the Big Bang by Ray Cavanaugh

. . . Lemaître presented this theory in writing to Einstein in October 1927, when the two first met at a conference in Brussels. Air Jordan 8 Retro
As the priest later recalled, Einstein’s response was, “Your calculations are correct, but your physics is abominable.” Lemaître’s work was more or less dismissed by the New York Times, which called his theory “highly romantic.” The encyclopedia Notable Scientists said that Lemaître’s main problem was that his theory “lacked sufficient mathematical backing for widespread acceptance.” Such backing would arrive in the fullness of time.

33olearyProving Grounded Multiverse Supporters Put the Brakes on Falsifiability by Denyse O’Leary

. . . Here is a prediction: To the extent that science is dominated by naturalist atheists, falsifiability will not survive as a criterion. That’s because it depends on the idea that there is something out there that can falsify things—call it “god” or whatever you want. Instead, whatever speculation supports the multiverse or some similar shibboleth will count for far more than any failure of evidence. And the naturalist atheists’ next war will, of course, be against the very idea of evidence. What evidence counts for will depend on who is presenting it and what causes it is thought to support. . . .

. . . If you like science—science done well, that is—you’ll find invaluable help making sense out of Cosmos with The Unofficial Guide to Cosmos: Fact and Fiction in Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Landmark Science Series, an easily readable volume co-authored by Ell, Richards, David Klinghoffer, and Casey Luskin. The Unofficial Guide to Cosmos sorts out, episode by episode, the legitimate science from the liberal doses of materialist philosophy, revised history, and brazen ideology the makers of the series have carelessly (or intentionally?) stirred into the mix. nike tn pas cher . . .

29rossMoon Strike Lunar Origin Causes “Philosophical Disquiet” by Hugh Ross

. . . In yet another article in the same issue as Canup’s review, earth scientist Tim Elliott observes that the degree and kinds of complexity and fine-tuning required by lunar origin models appear to be increasing at an exponential rate. Among lunar origin researchers, he notes, “the sequence of conditions that currently seems necessary in these revised versions of lunar formation have led to philosophical disquiet.” . . .

27luskinLogged Out Why Scientists Can’t Reconstruct Darwin’s “Tree of Life” by Casey Luskin

. . . About the same time, another discovery was made that confounded evolutionary biologists who studied genes: they found that the three domains of life could not be resolved into a tree-like pattern. ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST Uncaged

This led the prominent biochemist W. buty nike janoski damskie Ford Doolittle to famously lament: “Molecular phylogenists will have failed to find the ‘true tree,’ not because their methods are inadequate or because they have chosen the wrong genes, but because the history of life cannot properly be represented as a tree.” He later acknowledged, “It is as if we have failed at the task that Darwin set for us: delineating the unique structure of the tree of life.” .

    . . Dillon Brooks Jerseys . Why have we forgotten most of the positive contributions of Christianity to the rise of modern science? This cultural amnesia is largely due to the influence of a number of anti-Christian myths about science and religion. borsello adidas uomo prezzo These myths teach that science came of age only in the victory of naturalism over Christianity. This article will review and correct some of those myths, so that the next time you hear one of them, you can counter it with the true story of science and faith. . . .

    . . Adidas Running . If it’s real science, then it’s not scientism. Scientism is taking the mantle of science and claiming for it an authority that it doesn’t have. Examples would include scientists who maintain that evolution disproves the existence of God or who say that we exist in a purposeless, random universe. And then there are those physicists who insist that the universe gave rise to itself, or the whole field of what is called evolutionary psychology. These are examples of speculative storytelling that have absolutely no evidence behind them. . Wisconsin Badgers Jerseys . AIR ZOOM VOMERO 12 .

    . Nike Roshe LD 1000 . . Fortunately, we live in a more enlightened age, don’t we? Modern people invariably rest their cases on well-founded and proven facts, don’t they? You never hear anybody nowadays adhering to exotic and improbable theories about the origins of nature and the structure of the universe. Indeed, what do modern people believe on these subjects? Let us take an outstanding example of modern enlightened thought. Let us consider Dr. Adidas Yeezy 550 Homme Nike Air Max Baratas Lawrence Krauss, head of the “Origins Project” at Arizona State University. . . .

    . . air max pas cher . Someone once said, “The heart cannot believe that which the mind rejects.” If you are not confident that the message of the Bible is actually true, you can’t believe it no matter how hard you try. The “I just take Christianity on (blind) faith” attitude can’t be the right approach. Nike Blazer homme It leaves the Bible without defense, yet Peter directs us to make a defense for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15). ugg bailey button Also, the biblical word for faith, pistis, doesn’t mean “wishing.” It means “active trust.” And trust cannot be conjured up or manufactured.

    . . . As a scientist, you can be highly trained—but poorly educated. ADIDAS ZX 750 You don’t take courses in the philosophy of science or the history of science. You just learn how to do science, and the training is basically, “Here, this is how you do science.” And part of that training is the idea that you don’t appeal to the supernatural. In retrospect, it’s blatantly obvious, but as a scientist you are simply drinking the Kool-Aid: “This is how you do science.” . . .

    . Nike Air Yeezy 2 . . So why are such paltry and uncertain claims being hyped in the first place? Materialists are apparently desperate for such “good news” stories because they need them in order to convince their patrons, the public, to continue funding their work. The media willingly cooperates, printing stories that sound plausible but that are ultimately science fiction.

    The History of the Bikini

    Operation_Crossroads_Baker_Edit Just in time to kick off the summer months, I share with you the following from Salvo issue 29. The “she” who is being referred to here is Jessica Rey, founder of Rey Swimwear, and this article tells a bit of her story—and the story of the bikini as well. nike tn femme new balance uomo brescia

Air Jordan 4 Homme Fjallraven Kanken 16L Canotte Washington Wizards In June 2013, she gave a genteel, ten-minute talk called “The Evolution of the Swimsuit” that set off a verbal firestorm in the blogosphere. Adidas Superstar Femme Nike Air Max Baratas New Balance 996 damskie Nike Air Max 1 m?skie cz?rwone She started off with a little history. nike kwazi homme adidas tubular shadow homme The first bikini was designed in 1946 by Louis Réard, who worked in his mother’s lingerie shop. nike air jordan 12 donna nike pas cher nike tn femme He named it after Bikini Atoll, the site of post-World War II nuclear bomb testing, because he expected an explosive reaction from the public. He had to hire a stripper because no French model would debut it for him. Asics Homme Pas Cher Later, in the wake of the 1960s’ sexual revolution, “liberated” feminists began casting the bikini as symbolic of “the power of women.” The reframing stuck, and in 2003, a New York Times reporter called it “the millennial equivalent of the power suit.” Jessica then related the results of a 2009 neural imaging study conducted on male students at Princeton University that had turned up some interesting results relevant to women’s choices in fashion. louboutin soldes nike air max 2017 pas cher “Brain scans revealed that when men are shown pictures of scantily clad women, the region of the brain associated with tools, such as screwdrivers and hammers, lit up.” Furthermore, she said, some men showed “zero brain activity in the medial prefrontal cortex, which is the part of the brain that lights up when one ponders another person’s thoughts, feelings, and intentions.” This was not what the researchers had expected. Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 femme New Balance 1300 homme One professor said, “It’s as if they’re reacting to these women as if they are not fully human,” as if they were “objects, not people.” This study, together with a related one on men’s language choices after seeing the images, led analysts at National Geographic to conclude that bikinis “really do inspire men to see [women] as objects”—as things to be used, rather than persons to connect with.

  • This turns the notion of the bikini as a “power suit” entirely on its head. Nike Air Max 2016 Homme Nike Free Run Femme If these findings are to be believed, the bikini is a profound tool of disempowerment. Nike Air Max 1 gs femme Jessica’s point, therefore, was this: If a woman wants to be taken seriously—as a valuable, fully human person rather than an object—she would do better to dress more modestly. nike kwazi femme Adidas buty .

    Canada Goose Pas Cher new balance 737 damskie Marcia Segelstein interviewed her for the magazine a while back (see: To Make a Family) and her organization, The Ruth Institute, has been featured in the “Allied Front” column.

    I found a more recent interview with Dr. Nike Air Zoom Vomero 12 nike schoenen nederland nike tn requin pas cher Morse at aleteia.org where she talks about her new book and why they decided to put Marilyn Monroe on the cover:

    When Art Director Todd Bingham came up with the cover for this book, I knew the concept was perfect.

Air Max 95 Mujer New Balance 990 homme nike damskie buty czarne Air Jordan 5 Retro The “glamorous” side of her adult life included movie stardom, modeling, appearance in the first issue of “Playboy” in December 1953, three marriages, and an uncertain number of affairs.
