Does God Evolve? A Surprising Answer

posted by David Klinghoffer

Robert Wright is winning praise with his new book, The Evolution of God, suggesting that indeed, our conception of God evolves and improves, even if in all likelihood this also means that God is a figment of our imagination. I […]

Thomas Jefferson, Intelligent Design Advocate

posted by David Klinghoffer

Yes, that’s right the famous “deist,” skeptic, and author of the Declaration of Independence judged that there was empirical evidence of a designing intelligence at work in biology, cosmology — and norms of justice, which in turn justified him in […]

Korach and Liberalism

posted by David Klinghoffer

A helpful psychological and political insight emerges from this week’s Torah reading, Korach (Numbers 16:1-18:32): Always be skeptical of someone’s politics when you see that it increases his prestige in the eyes of high-prestige society. Liberté, égalité, vanité. Pictured above by Botticelli, […]
