Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has said the recent discoveries of desecration done to the shrines of Baal in Israel allude to specific passages of the Bible and prove the truthfulness of Scripture.
Ham, who is president of the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum in Kentucky, wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis on Thursday that excavation discoveries of an ancient city gate and shrine that the biblical King Hezekiah wanted destroyed somewhere in the eighth century B.C. point directly to 2 Kings in the Bible.
The discoveries in question were made at the site of Tel Lachish, where a city gate which once contained a sacred shrine with two altars also came with a ceremonial toilet made for desecration purposes. more >>
British evolutionary biologist and atheist author Richard Dawkins has been accused by British scientists responding to a major new study, of misrepresenting them in his attacks and strong criticism of religious beliefs.
The "Public Understanding of Science" study, carried out by Rice University, apparently did not directly ask about Dawkins by name, but as The Independent and other sources pointed out, several of the subjects directly stated that The God Delusion author has been giving a bad name to others in his profession.
As many as 48 scientists apparently directly referenced Dawkins in their discussion about the public perception of science, and 80 percent of those accused the evolutionary biologist of misrepresenting science and scientists in his books and public speeches. more >>

What if what you and I call "reality" is just a highly advanced simulation? Some of the world's brightest minds want to find out.
Since Rene Descartes formulated his famous dictum, "I think, therefore I am," philosophers have been wrestling with the question of how we can know that what we think we know is really real. In the last couple of decades, pop culture has wrestled with that question, as well.
Recall the 1999 movie, "The Matrix," in which a man discovers his whole life has been lived in a virtual prison that simulates the real world. In the movie, he's given a choice between two pills — a red one and a blue one. The first will awaken him from the simulation, and the second will lull him back into blissful ignorance. Since then, "choosing the red pill" has become synonymous with throwing off comfortable illusions and confronting reality. more >>
As part of a campaign to combat violence against women, city leaders and Christian ministries in Toowoomba, Australia, are working together to create a city that is free from porn.
