Dominoes, Determinism, and Naturalism

Those who choose to believe in determinism or physicalism don't choose to believe at all - they believe because of prior physical conditions. I want to talk about a concept that I've been rolling around in my mind. In fact, I've talked to you about it before, but it has come to the front of my mind because I've started to take classes again in my master's program over at Talbot under J.P. Moreland. It's a class on metaphysics dealing with naturalism.

Evolution - Philosophy, Not Science

Greg shows that Darwin's General Theory of Evolution has nothing to do with science. I'm mystified by the opening sentence of an article in Friday's Union Tribune (October 25, 1996). It says, "In his most comprehensive statement yet on evolution, Pope John Paul II insisted that faith and science can co-exist."

The Vanishing Pro-Life Apologist

There's a growing taboo infecting crisis pregnancy centers around the country. Pro-lifers are getting tight-lipped on abortion. Here's why even CPC's are shying away from speaking frankly about the moral crime of the century. The last few years have witnessed a stunning development in the pro-life movement. More and more crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) refuse to discuss abortion. A new wave of pro-life leaders insist that victory will not be gained in the court of public opinion if the debate centers principally on the morality of abortion.

Pro-Life: The Epitome of Baloney

A caller referred to Greg's views on when life begins as "the epitome of baloney." Here's Greg's response. It certainly isn't the case that I don't like opposing viewpoints. We have them all the time. In fact, the caller knew that he was put at the head of the line because his viewpoint opposed mine. I enjoy callers with opposing viewpoints. But let me respond to him and to what he called the "epitome of my own baloney."

Theistic Evolution: Designed by Chance?

I want you to think about Darwinian evolution for a moment. The neo-Darwinian synthesis necessarily entails a particular mechanism that determines (an important word) which changes are reproduced in the next generation of living organisms.  This mechanism is called natural selection.
