Why Should You Read a Word I Write?
This is me. I was delivering one of my Sunday “church lectures” on the objective evidence for the truth of Christianity. The particular topic that day might have been the information content of biology or the fine tuning of the physical properties of the universe or maybe the timeline for the writing of the New Testament Gospels. I am not a pastor or theologian though. I would like to call myself a Christian apologist (defender) but to do so might be an insult to authentic apologists like William Lane Craig, Frank Turek, or Greg Koukl. I am just a guy who has had the opportunity to study in depth the objective facts of our reality and have concluded that the Christian worldview is the best explanation for all the data we have. New data might change my assessment, but the latest scientific discoveries seem to further confirm rather than defeat my conclusion. Feel free to take a shot at this. I like the challenge and engagement.
The site however is not dedicated solely to the discussion of theology. I provide commentary on politics, morality, science, and religion in mostly equal measure. I have degrees in both engineering and business and had a thirty-five year career in the high tech business world. Therefore, my interests are wide ranging. I will defend constitutional conservatism and a return to limited government. Then I might ruminate on the impact of new data from the Large Hadron Collider to our view of reality. I always love to point out Marxist hypocrisy – there’s so much low hanging fruit there! I could even opine on the virtues of riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle (I am a proud owner). In any event, be assured that whatever I write about I will have significant facts to back up my words, so cast your aspersions wisely.
So why should you read a word I write? That’s of course for you to decide. Just know that I sincerely appreciate your interest and response to anything published here. And I hope that maybe, just maybe I may open your mind to something new.
