Is The Earth Flat?

Flat earth claims have exploded on the Internet. However, essentially nobody in Christianity ever taught this, although they had a very high view of Scripture. The Bible simply doesn’t teach that the earth is flat. E.g., the Venerable Bede in the 8th century taught a spherical earth, and Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century thought that a globe earth was one of the most obvious and well known facts of his day. Medieval students could do a better job of proving a global earth than most students today.

Biological Robots

In living cells, there is something amazing: Biological robots, that demonstrate nanotechnology way beyond anything that man can make. Machines, such as the ATP Synthase, common in all living cells, require many component parts which are useless until the machine is fully formed, thus defy evolutionary explanation. Even more amazing is that the recipe (DNA) needed to build this machine, needs that machine working first in order to get that recipe.

Are We Living in a Simulation?

Why are some people talking about ‘simulation theory’ (the idea that all of our universe is an illusion and we are living in a matrix)? Elon Musk said “there is a one in billions chance that this is base reality” as opposed to us living in a simulation. All of this simply presupposes evolutionary naturalism and extrapolates from that presupposition. A related assumption is that consciousness is just a product of matter (or algorithms), but the Bible and our experience indicate that humans are not reducible to our physical brains, let alone computer code.
