Monkey Morality: Can Evolution Explain Ethics?

Recent studies suggest that animals are capable of rudimentary forms of moral behavior. God isn't the source of morality, evolutionists say; Mother Nature is. The evolutionary answer, though, does not explain morality; it denies it. Bongo is a chimp.  He's being punished by other members of the chimpanzee band for not sharing his bananas.  Bongo is selfish.  Bad Bongo.  Moral rule:  Chimps shouldn't be selfish.

The Grand Design: A Quantum Leap

  Quantum physics.  Ugh.  The term itself is enough to make grown men weep and send theologians scurrying.  It can also send chills up the spine of the Christian marshalling evidence from science for the existence of God.

Rationality and Determinism

There's a fundamental, self-refuting flaw in Stephen Hawking's argument in his new book.  He begins with the idea that the world is determined.  Everything, including human beings, operate according to mechanistic laws of nature.  Free will and agency is an illusion, he claims. But then there's a problem with the apparently rationally-based effort to persuade us of his view, which is the apparent purpose of the book book. The goal of his book is at odds with the determinism he is committed to.
