About a year ago, I started publishing articles on a web site called “The Patch“, which a actually collection of sites specific to local communities. I started posting in the Woodstock Patch, and branched out from there to cover much of the metro-Atlanta area and even some other states. “The Patch” has recently undergone a major reformat, and thus far the tools provided to post articles on the new platform seem to be somewhat of a downgrade from what they were previously.
I tried somewhat to start working on a foundational basis of explaining why the Christian worldview is a reasonable worldview to hold. Here I will list links to the articles I posted there, and along the way I might pull them out, dust them off, and re-post them. Take a look. Let me know what you think!
The Dials of Life
This will be the first article in a series on the origin of life. The series will cover a brief explanation of the conditions that make life possible, what we mean when we say something is “alive”, and an exploration into the concept of abiogenesis.
The (Not-So) Simple Life
In this article on the subject of life, we will discuss what it actually means to be “alive”, and some of the minimum requirements for life to exist.
The Origin of Life

The Mystery of Science (Not Really)
Science: Some love it, some hate it, many ignore it. What is science and how is it accomplished?
Does Science Have Limits?
Science is a beneficial enterprise. Science has enabled today’s society to enjoy luxuries never dreamed about in past generations. Science does, however, have limitations, and we will attempt to discuss some of these limitations in this article.
Is Science Opposed to Christianity?
The claim has been made, in recent years, that the Christian faith stands in opposition to the scientific enterprise. Christians are labeled as “science deniers”, among other things. Is this historically accurate?
Was the Sinking of the Titanic a Copycat Myth?
A 1898 Novella, “Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan”, was published. The story contains many eerie similarities with the actual story of the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, fourteen years later!
Horus and Jesus: Practically Twins! (well, not really….)
As I wrote in my last post, there are many different sources that claim a multitude of similarities between the Egyptian sky god Horus and Jesus of Nazareth. Does closer scrutiny bear out these claims? The devil, as they say, is in the details…

This week: smart Christians, overzealous ACLU actions, the atheists that don’t exist, the inhabited planet that never was!
Evolution? What do you mean by that?
“Evolution.” The term can have different meanings based on the context of the conversation, or the thoughts and views of the person speaking or being spoken to. This article will attempt to draw some of the different meanings of “Evolution”.
