Why Atheists Need Faith

Why Atheists Need Faith

Atheism’s central conceit is that it is a worldview grounded in logic and scientific evidence. That it has nothing to do with faith, which it associates with weakness. In reality, faith is central to atheism, logic and even science…

Collectivism and Violence are One

Collectivism and Violence are One

By Cobin K. Barthold | “The main idea of the novel is to portray a positively beautiful man,” Dostoevsky wrote to his niece, in an 1868 letter, of what would become The Idiot. “There is nothing more difficult in the world,” he continued, “and especially now.” By “positively beautiful man” Dostoevsky meant an infinitely humble, compassionate Christian man….

Invariably, he would come home and beckon me to his car to help him carry his “embarrassment of riches” into the house. Every year, I would gaze in wonderment into his back seat at a smorgasbord of cakes, cookies, wrapped presents, and Christmas cards, given to him by appreciative and thoughtful…

Through a Screen, Darkly

By Emina Melonic | The experience of information consumption has undergone a drastic devolution. News works on the principle of transience; but, if you will pardon the pun, this isn’t news to anyone. In the past, most people were able to differentiate between current, fast-moving, and quickly changing events and true knowledge. Let alone the question of wisdom.
