The joy of logic

I managed to watch a pretty interesting and enjoyable TV programme this week called The Joy of Logic. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of thinking about thinking, so this was right up my street, and one of the first things it tackled was the concept of the syllogism; two premises followed by a … Continue reading

Difficult Bible Bits: Homosexuality

I recently wrote this article and have made some people happy and some people angry. Thought I might stick it here too for your joy: *** Wow. Here’s a way to guarantee that you’re going to get hated by somebody. Probably better to just ignore it, and hope it goes away…or sit on the fence … Continue reading

World Vision and same-sex marriage

You may or may not have seen what happened over the last week with the global Christian charity, World Vision. I’ll attempt to summarise: 24 March, 2014: World Vision announces that they’re changing their hiring policy – adultery is still firmly against the rules, but homosexuality now isn’t; if you’re a Christian in a faithful, legal same-sex marriage … Continue reading

Book review: Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi

I have little influence over which books that I review most of the time. I like it like that, because it exposes me to a broader range of voices than I would normally pick for myself. But this time, I had heard of this book before and then went to find it, so my expectations … Continue reading

The Big Bang definitely didn’t happen

You may have spotted that red and yellow image appearing on Tuesday, showing that scientists have detected gravitational waves, which you’d expect if the Big Bang really happened. It was nice to watch one particular scientist’s reaction; he predicted that one day someone might find this, and it brought him great joy to hear the … Continue reading

Richard Dawkins on Twitter should be a lesson to us all

There’s an article over at the Telegraph that starts with an image subtitled by ‘Richard Dawkins has imploded on Twitter’, continues with phrases such as ‘Tweet that, Rich.’ and is tagged with ‘emotional incontinence’. Surely that’s got to be worth a read (I’ll link to it below). The article essentially makes the point that when Dawkins … Continue reading

AlvinPlantinga

Is atheism irrational?

Alvin Plantinga is a very interesting philosopher. If you don’t believe me, there’s no need for you to go read his entire back-collection (although that would probably be worth it), because he recently gave a very good interview for the New York Times. Of course, you could head over there and have a read of … Continue reading

The Art of Re-Giving

I find the Parable of the Talents incredibly challenging; am I being faithful with what God has entrusted to me? It was the Parable of the Talents that inspired me to first set up this blog. I believed (and still believe) that God had given me a gift to communicate and teach, but there weren’t … Continue reading

Why cold is better than lukewarm

In Revelation 3:15-16 Jesus says: I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard a sermon or read an article about this, … Continue reading

‘Tis better to give than to receive

This Sunday it’s the Super Bowl. I’m a Seahawks fan, and the first season I followed them they were the worst team in the worst division…but this year they’ll be in the Super Bowl. I am excited. Apparently though there are other Seahawks fans in the world, and a whole bunch live in America. One … Continue reading

Is Facebook making you happy?

I don’t think it’s groundbreaking news that using Facebook can make you unhappy. Steven Furtick was quoted across the world last year when he said that Facebook makes us unhappy because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel. But it’s not all bad news. A bunch of studies  have suggested that Facebook only … Continue reading

infinity

The sum of every positive number is a negative fraction?

No, you read that right, and it’s true. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 up to infinity equals: negative one twelfth. Seriously. There’s a little video you can watch which explains it really well, over here. Here’s the thing: 1 + 2 = 3. 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. Stop … Continue reading
