It sure would be nice to see a priest blog here. You know, someone who has actually dedicated his life to studying Christ, meditating on Christ, and praying to Christ, rather than this New Age, multi-millionaire celebrity guru.
As a Roman Catholic, I wouldn’t have the audacity to try to explain Krishna to this man raised Hindu, so why is he trying to explain Jesus to me?
Quite frankly, this is getting very offensive.

Recently I created a brief storm on Twitter by throwing out questions that physicists can't answer. Twitter allows you to contact famous physicists directly, and it's predictable that a handful will become irritated and even riled up if you dare to challenge them. "What happens in physics stays in p

Why God Makes More Sense than Atheism
After two centuries of the tug-of-war between science and religion, it's clear science occupies the dominant position. It has passed the "So what?" test, meaning that science as applied to practical daily life has been immensely more important to modern people than God. This has given atheism, both

How Richard Dawkins Lost His Battle with God
When he wrote his 2006 best-seller, The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins expected to accomplish two aims that have proved to be remarkable failures. The first aim was social. He wanted to attract a horde of doubters, fence-sitters, and agnostics to gather their courage and join the atheist ranks. This
