"Historic Christianity stands on the beliefs that classical logic represents the 'Truth of God' and sound reason is the foundation of the Christian faith. In contrast, modern Christianity frequently appears to be hanging perilously on a framework of bad science, fuzzy logic and situational truth. Can Christianity survive in an era of computer logic and scientific scrutiny?"

Purpose of This Site
For the first 40 years of my life, I believed Christianity was not grounded in the events of history, the facts of science, the rules of logic or any reasonable concept of truth. During this period, information was available to dispel my beliefs but such information was often embedded in a framework of bad science, fuzzy logic and situational truth. The book entitled Christian Handbook of Reason and Insight for Scientists and Technologists, available free from this Web Site, places existing information in a framework of sound science, solid logic and absolute truth. Most of the references are 3 - 4 decades old suggesting the presentation may be new but the information is not.
Jesus said, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” If this book motivates one non-Christian to “open the door,” its primary purpose will have been accomplished. If one Christian becomes a stronger apologist, a secondary purpose will have been accomplished.
Ten questions are addressed with classical logic; supplementary material has been relegated to the references so the reader can focus entirely on the critical arguments. This book is not a source of original thought; instead, it is a compendium of critical arguments uncluttered by supplementary material and excessive personal opinion. The reader is challenged to refute these arguments.
In addition to a text on Christian Apologetics, this website contains the author's perspective on a variety of Christian issues including: The Illogical and Blasphemous Aspects of Calvinism; The True Source of Evil; The Meaning of Holiness; The Impending Death of the Protestant Church in America; Whether Satan is Alive and Well; The Attributes of God; The Core Beliefs of Christianity; and The Purpose of Prayer. Commentary may be found in the Theology Corner section.
From a denominational vantage, the book fits all flavors except "young earth." The Theology Corner commentary is Wesleyan/Arminian with a Theodicy based on Satan and his minions.
This is not a glitz and glamour website. It does not pander to bloggers, attack other religions, bank on name recognition, promote a Christian denomination, seek your support or want your money. Furthermore, this website is only for those who think about what they believe and why they believe it.
By classical logic, Christianity is either absolutely true or absolutely false; there is no in between. Truth is not personal, situational, relative or unknowable; it is absolute. Good hunting!
