Alan's monthly letter for May 2014 Evolution can be overwhelming. It draws upon evidence from multiple disciplines: geology, paleontology, genetics, chemistry, and others. It’s hard to know where to begin. That’s why I suggest using an easy, yet powerful tactic to help handle this issue. Whenever you come across the topic of evolution, ask a simple question: What definition of evolution is being used? Since evolution has at least three different meanings, it’s essential to know which one is being invoked.
Alan's monthly letter for June 2011 Dear Friend, Atheists like to fancy themselves as rational people. They claim they aren’t encumbered by holy books or divine doctrine. They’re free from the shackles of religious belief so they can follow the evidence where it leads.

“It is not necessary to invoke God to…set the Universe going,” concludes Stephen Hawking in his latest book, The Grand Design. Denying God is old hat, but this comes from a world-class theoretical physicist. That’s why Christians are unnerved by his bold claim. A statement from a scientist of his caliber commands attention. But it turns out there is no reason for concern. Everything Hawking has written in his book can be dismissed as irrational. Everything. Let me tell you why.
Alan's monthly letter for August 2010 Dear Friend,
Alan's monthly letter for September 2009 Dear Friend, When I think of summer breaks, I think of the sun, the beach, the waves, and drinking fresh lemonade. I like to relax in a chair and think of absolutely nothing. But this summer I took a slightly different approach: I studied physics, quantum theory, relativity, cosmology, embryology, and genetics – all in ten days. Not necessarily a relaxing summer, but at least I had some lemonade.
