Reality is subjective. (YMMV)

Quote of the Day:

The original and defining text of Reconstructionism is Institutes of Biblical Law, published in 1973 by Rousas John Rushdoony — an 800-page explanation of the Ten Commandments, the Biblical ‘case law’ that derives from them, and their application today. “The only true order,” writes Rushdoony, “is founded on Biblical Law.

All law is religious in nature, and every non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion.” In brief, he continues, “Every law-order is a state of war against the enemies of that order, and all law is a form of warfare.”

Gary North, Rushdoony’s son-in-law, wrote an appendix to Institutes on the subject of ‘Christian economics.’

Christian Reconstructionism: Theocratic Dominionism Gains Influence

    drug dealin’: you had ONE job!!!!!

    good mornings: I like this, I may have to put this book on my Christmas list 😛
    also, it shouldn’t really surprise anyone that Ben Franklin walked around naked…….it really shouldn’t.

  2. Wikipedia
    What Sheldrake writes about is an important issue. On one hand it gives the lie to the nay-sayers who style themselves as “skeptics.” They are simply zealots. They have different opinions than those who convened the witch hunts in early modern Europe but a similar approach and agenda – to free the world of that which they find threatening to their viewpoints. That they delude themselves that they are being “scientific” is both sad, troubling and yet another example of how science(as they think of it) has become a religion.

  3. Zealotry of the anti-theist skeptics
    What I object to about the zealotry of the so-called skeptics is that they are not arguing for their point of view, but rather for the complete censorship of any opposing view, particularly anything which isn’t overtly and aggressively anti-theistic. They fight bitterly to achieve the complete and total eradication from the marketplace of ideas of any views but their own, most particularly anything smacking of Christianity. Their rationale for crushing the rights of others is that they’re “right”. Because shut up.

    1. Agreed
      Something eerily similar to Popular Science’s recent decision to delete the Comment section from their articles. One wonders if the Guerilla Skeptics or some other group of that ilk had a say in that decision.
