The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principles on which it was founded. — C. L. De Montesquieu (1689-1755)

Dating the Past

Bob Ellis

We know the earth is 4.5 billion years old, right? How do we know that? Radiometric dating, right? How do we know radiometric dating is an accurate method for determining the ages of rocks?

Share and Defend

A.J. Castellitto

Spiritually, our nation is dying. In response, conservative Christians are caught between righteous judgements and somber humility. Share and Defend is what I propose. Share the Gospel and Defend Christian Values.

Legislation Promotes Open Flow of Information in Schools

Bob Ellis

There are a couple of good recently-introduced bills in the South Dakota Legislature which deal with the open flow of information in South Dakota schools. I dialogued briefly with Senator Jeff Monroe, the prime sponsor, about these this morning. SB 101 was crafted to ensure that a teacher may provide instruction in the area of personhood before birth, and SB 112 was designed to prohibit schools from preventing the instruction of intelligent design.

Question: Is Atheism a Religion?

Bob Ellis

Most people probably believe atheism is not a religion. After all, atheism specifically disbelieves that any religion is correct because it posits that there is no God, right? Ninian Smart has identified seven characteristics of religion: Narrative, Experiential, Social, Ethical, Doctrinal, Ritual, Material.

What You Know Just Ain’t So

Michael Peroutka

A man known as Josh Billings, one of the leading American humorists during the second half of the nineteenth century, once said this: “It ain’t what a man don’t know that makes him a fool…It’s all the things he does know…that just ain’t so.” I think we can heartily agree that it’s a problem when a man or woman takes action based on beliefs that are flawed. It’s really a recipe for disaster.

The Length of a Day in the Bible

Bob Ellis

How long was a day in the Bible? If you would really like to know--as opposed to relying on assumption-filled agendas, like anything else in the world, look at the context.

Genesis

In the Beginning

Michael Day

The first sentence of the Bible is, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." The scientific study of the universe is a good thing. But as we seek to increase our knowledge and understanding of the universe, we should also be prepared to learn about its Creator, because metaphorically speaking, his finger prints are all over it.

Big Bang Theory Has Big Problems

Bob Ellis

As is usually the case, the more we learn about science--including astronomy and astrophysics--the more we learn that the ideas pushed on us for years as "science" have some really big problems. In fact, when many of these claims are examined closely, we find that they are contrary to science. The big bang theory, the supposed 13 billion year age of the universe, star formation and many ideas related to astronomy have some major problems with their scientific viability, and with observable science.

All Creatures Great and Small

Ken Connor

Here at the Center for a Just Society we spill a lot of ink discussing issues that touch upon questions of human dignity and the sanctity of life. The guiding principle underlying our position on abortion, assisted suicide, euthanasia, elder abuse, and other bioethical controversies is that the willful abuse or destruction of human life is an affront to God. This convictions flows from the belief that God created this world and everything in it, and that He blessed man especially by creating him in His image and giving him dominion over the earth.

Why I Insist on Shaking Sleeping Americans Awake

Bradlee Dean

It seems as if no matter how many times one tries to wake the American people up to who are conspiring against us, there are always going to be some people who will take a step back – namely, the cowards who walk contrary to their own professed beliefs. Conservatives today do not want to stand up for the truth they profess to hold on to. They love their freedom so much that they are not willing to fight for it.

Family Research Council (FRC), after reading the fact sheet on the new proposed HHS mandate rule pertaining to non-profit organizations and closely held for-profit entities, like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, again confirms that the HHS mandate violates the conscience rights of non-profit organizations and family businesses across the country.

Left Goes Nuts Over Truth About ‘Transgender’ Teen

Gina Miller

Last Saturday, I came across a USA Today story about leaders of a junior high school in New Jersey informing the mother of a 13-year-old boy, who believes he is “transgendered,” that he is not allowed to come to school dressed as a girl. Back just a few short years ago this would not be “news.” It would have been expected that no school, much less a parent, would allow a boy to dress like a girl, but that’s no longer the case.

America in 2039: What if Revival Doesn’t Happen?

Steve Deace

Beyond the obvious technological advancements that have mostly benefited our lives, many of the issues we are currently wrestling with as a people weren’t even conceivable in 1989. Given that trend line, and the fact we are domestically debating unprecedented existential threats to individual liberty, the next 25 years could become American Exceptionalism’s tipping point moment barring revival.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
