I’ve been reading the brilliant Christian physicist, Hugh Ross, and pondering the questions he raises: The universe is so vast and so empty. How do we continue to believe that earth and its inhabitants are special in God’s eyes? What do we make of a “New Heaven” and “New Earth” in a cosmos where heat death and entropy seem likely to claim all matter and energy? How should we think of Adam and Eve before the Fall, in a world full of predators and parasites? Does the Resurrection have anything to say about all of this?
Meanwhile we live in a world that claims Charles Darwin’s theory resolved all such questions, so we are forbidden to ask them ever again.
Richard Dawkins summed up Darwin’s worldview with scathing clarity: “The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” That’s the core of Darwinism for you, right there.
My colleague Tom Gilson wrote a fine rebuke of Christianity Today ’s recent call for Christians to rally behind Darwinism , lest we look silly in the eyes of people who hate us. As I learned from reading the 1,000 page collection Theistic Evolution, there is no way to reconcile any kind of traditional Christian faith with Darwinism’s key tenet: that all life is the result of physical and chemical accidents, which show no genuine evidence of any plan or purpose. A Dead, Pitiless Mechanism
Dawkins has Darwinism down, though. Everything else in evolutionary theory is a footnote, unpacking “pitiless indifference.” Defending it, enforcing it, then searching out any spark that seems to point to Design, and stomping it out. Those who claim to adhere to theistic evolution , if they are serious about […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
