One of my American Facebook friends posted this recently and I replied with the comment set out below, which might be of interest to others.
“When my professor brought up positivism in my class last week, I started quietly laughing. When she asked me why I had laughed I told her it had nothing to do with her, but positivism. After I explained the failures of positivism, she said: “Well post-positivism is alive and well!” When I asked her if she could elaborate on the conceptual distin

A new (third) edition of “Who made God? Searching for a theory of everything” is now available in UK.

Taking the Bible seriously

But all this changed at the end of my first year at university where I was studying for an honours degree in physics. I was suddenly seized with an overpowering desire to r
This is the fifth in a series of extracts from “A glorious High Throne”, a readable Bible commentary on Hebrews and is Ch. 41 of the original book. The series will cover the whole of Hebrews 11, the great New Testament chapter on the subject of faith. Here is a quote from this chapter;
Abraham did indeed believe God, ‘concluding that God was able to raise [Isaac] up, even from the dead’ (11:19). The word ‘conclude’ means ‘reckon (as on a fact)’ and is related to our English wor

The fourth article in a series of extracts from “A glorious High Throne”, a readable Bible commentary on Hebrews (Ch. 40 of the original book) is now available (click on ‘Hebrews Commentary’ in the side panel).

The series will cover the whole of Hebrews 11, the great New Testament chapter on the subject of faith.
