Brave atheist PZ Myers (the American Richard Dawkins wannabe) has recently done humanity the favor of debunking the so-called “God Equation” – a simple physics trick that purports to give “scientific evidence that the creation of the Earth and Moon was a deliberate act.” But what has begun to come out of the debunking is a misunderstanding by some that this attempt at proving “intelligent design” has somehow come from “Christian” creation scientists. So, the story now needs debunking on two counts – the particular spin on “intelligent design” given by the discoverers of the equation, and the particular misapplication that some atheists on the web have added to it. In the end, we will see the God Equation proponents and the atheists are the ones in league.

He goes by the moniker “religion sucks.” Like so many people who have too much time on their hands, an internet connection, and a bone […]
Why is the topic “Does God Exist?” important? Because it has both temporal and eternal significance.

The unknown can harbor things that should make us fearful, especially if the unknown means judgment based on what we do in this life. Hitchens has no empirical
Oh my! Doug Wilson has really stepped in it this time! Well, perhaps that’s not quite the right metaphor: he didn’t actually step in it, he said it. That’s right. Near the end of the brand new, action-packed, mind-bending, worldview-challenging debate-documentary-film-experience Collision, before a tavern-room full of skeptics and atheists, Wilson encapsules the atheistic worldview with a particular two-word sentence distinguished greatly by its down-to-earthness.
