Book Review: The War on the West by Douglas Murray

The War on the West by Douglas Murray. This is, as far as I know, the eighth book by the author. If you’re familiar with Murray, then you’d know he’s been the subject of a lot of controversy, focusing on topics such as Islam, immigration, transgender ideology, and, most recently, his support of Ukraine.

With Richard Dawkins in the Galapagos Islands, Part Six: Day Three, Fernandina

           On Sunday morning, Mother’s Day, we visited Fernandina, one of the youngest of the islands. We walked on the smooth and roping Pahoehoe lava, which emerges from the volcano as a liquid or close to it, en route inland to see the sharper A’a lava, which emerges less liquidy and […]

Then we landed at Punta Cormorant on the island of Floreana. The island had […]

The New Creationism?

Many of us fought against Intelligent Design in the early 2000s, and for evolution to be taught in our nation’s science classes without mystical inclusions, fake “controversies” or impeaching strawmen.
