You Cannot Critique Hawking Because You’re Not a Physicist!?

critique hawking

Since publishing the article, Can the Universe Create Itself? I’ve had some people objecting to what I wrote, specifically regarding my critique of Hawking.

creation day four science

Arguably the most scrutinized book of the Bible is the Book of Genesis. Many skeptics will claim that the book of Genesis contradicts science and, as a result, it cannot be trusted.

The Devil’s Delusion by David Berlinski Reviewed

The Devil's Delusion

It is particularly fulfilling for a Christian – or it should be – to see someone not necessarily in their camp, someone watching from the sidelines to find faults and criticize atheists and demonstrate the weaknesses and often foolishness of their bold pronouncements.
