An Introduction to Zugology

Zugology is the theology of balanced Christianity.  It is a new branch of theology that overarches all current branches of theology, being the summation of them all.

Zugology is that branch of theology which requires the balancing and integrating of …

The Independent Group contradicts UK independence from Europe

Conviction politics is alive and well. The Independent Group is a new alliance in the House of Commons of MPs against Brexit and the issues it has highlighted who have felt compelled to leave their current political parties.

Starlight and Time

Tonight I attended a public showing of The Starlight Travel Dilemma, in 'The Heavens Declare' series produced by Awesome Science Media.

The 20th-century Icon

The aim …

Christianity and secularism

Christianity is an optimistic worldview that faces the reality of human wickedness by addressing individual responsibility and accountability to God through Jesus Christ. Secularism is a worldview that denies the existence of God and acts as if mankind has enough collective goodness and goodwill to lift each other up and improve the lives of most …
