When Oprah Talks, People Listen: Contemporary Cultural Authority and Christian Proclamation - audio lecture by Ken Myers

Quotes and comments;
- there are three lectures...

1. - we live in a culture where people can't seem to realize there could be something wrong with them or their lives (ie. they're too busy 'celebrating' themselves... thanks to pop culture and cheerleaders like Oprah....)

The origins of medieval thought - audio lecture by R. J. Rushdoony

Quotes and comments;
- scroll down the page to find the lecture.
- this excellent lecture deals with subjects like science, naturalism, Kant, evolution, and other matters.

1. Kant (in his Critique of pure reason) said "heretofore we have tried to conform our knowledge to reality... to objects... but now we must see if we can have more success if we endeavor to make objects conform to our thoughts.''
- This it seems to me typifies the spirit of modern science. ie. we don't want to believe in god, even though creation tesitifies to Him - so we assume our atheism, our materialism... and then impose it on creation. We don't mention god; we talk about everything as if God didn't exist.
- The program to act as if there were no god (which is what's called naturalism) is an attempt to make good on Kant. ie. who cares about reality? who cares the universe was created by god? We'll talk as if god doesn't exist... we'll make objects conform to our thoughts. The commitment is not to reality, but to atheism, materialism, and human autonomy. This brand of science only pretends to be interested in truth.

Charles Darwin - The Truth? This is long essay or short book on Charles Darwin and his book 'Origins' by Andrew Bradbury

Quotes and comments;
- the basic premise is that Darwin plagiarized the ideas of one Edward Blyth.
- the essay includes fascinating biographical material on Darwin.
- a good introduction to Darwin; the book to read after this is the biography by Desmond and Moore; 'The life of a tormented evolutionist.'
- in my opinion Darwin was the most dishonest and corrupt scientist we know anything about. His whole life is a fraud.

Quotes and comments;
- there are over 40 sermons in this excellent series. I recommend it highly.
- in my opinion a christian who doesn't know the history of christianity ever remains a child.
