It's not "just us chickens"

  1. 03rd January 2006
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

Thanks to the news media, the world can now add chickens to the things we must worry about killing us. To date, 100 million domestic birds have been killed and it is reported 60 of the 100 people infected with the human form, since 1997, have died.

The two faces of New Year celebrations

  1. 24th December 2005
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

The winter tide festivities continue on, with people moving almost mindlessly through them—looking neither left nor right, only onward to the end of them, full of parties, food, drink and maxed-out credit cards. In just a few more days it will be the New Year and the glut of holiday celebrations will cease and we all can get back to normal—at least until...

Are You Going to Heaven? Who Really Knows?

  1. 23rd December 2005
  2. Rod McNair

On Tuesday, December 20, 2005, ABC aired a special two-hour program entitled, "Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?" To produce the program, Barbara Walters spent a whole year traveling the world, "interviewing religious leaders, scientists, believers and non-believers alike to get a range of perspectives on heaven and the afterlife."

Jolly Old St. Nick, indeed

  1. 21st December 2005
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

Contrary to what most people think, the trappings of Christmas are not based on Jesus Christ of the Bible, but are deeply rooted in pre-Christian oral legends, sanitized by theologians, historians and, in some instances, the editorial rooms of more modern times. Of all these legends, none has grown to the stature and popularity of that of Santa Claus.

Green Trees and Jesus

  1. 15th December 2005
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

Looking back over the years, it has become evident to me that the gap between what the Bible says to do, and what its alleged followers actually do, has reached near absurd proportions. As an example, God carefully instructed ancient Israel to not seek after the ways of the pagan people they were replacing in the Promised Land, especially in the matter of...

In vain they worship Me

  1. 12th December 2005
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

Political correctness is again turning the United States' Christmas scene on its ear this year. Arguments continue to rage over what to call the "real live" national evergreen tree, now firmly planted in the nation's Capitol on the Ellipse. What is it: a holiday tree or a Christmas tree? Those who say "holiday tree" point out that it offends Jews, Muslims,...

The Holiday Craze

  1. 01st December 2005
  2. Gary F. Ehman (1937–2021)

It's that time of the year when those repeated seasonal refrains about reindeer, mistletoe, holly and little drummer boys bombard us in stores, mall-ways, on radio and TV—along with being hummed, whistled or sung in our ears by just about everyone around us. One of the favorites, left over from my past life in the frozen wilds of northern Wisconsin goes like...

Thanksgiving and Our National Mission

  1. 26th November 2005
  2. Richard F. Ames

Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect on our blessings, our purpose and our future. How thankful are we? Have we used the blessings God has given us to fulfill our national purpose and mission? Or do we even know our mission?

Evolution Takes a Major Hit!

  1. 11th November 2005
  2. Jeffrey Fall

Last winter, one of the most respected atheists and philosophers of our time raised the hackles of committed evolutionists. Eighty-one year old Antony Flew stunned "hard core" atheists by admitting that the genetic structure of all life, DNA, could hardly have evolved on its own.

The Need for Common Sense

  1. 04th November 2005
  2. Martin Fannin

Would you build your own house in a flood zone on ground below sea level? Most would not do this and if they did, they would lack common sense. How about a city? Does it make sense to build and perpetuate a metropolitan area on land below sea level? The question might be—can it be done? Obviously, under optimum conditions it may be done and maintained if massive...
