An excerpt from a physics text that I have written: “In the previous four modules, we discussed units, vectors, and motion.  In these discussions, we concentrated solely on how to describe physical situations.  We can predict how long it will take to make a journey, how fast an object will be traveling after a certain […]

It is easy to take for granted that the physics and chemistry behind rocket science is not simple. Here is a reminder from a few days ago, and then a summary.    

In 2003 Michael Crichton sent the Ecology industry into a rage by exposing them as a religion. He got away with it because he had both the science background and enough money not to be silenced by the eco-lobby. After his death this speech was scrubbed from Crichton’s personal website, so I am posting it here […]

In this world there is sin, suffering, and sickness. Yet every human, Christian or not, because he or she is made in God’s image, can never be at home in these maladies. There is an aching homesickness in their hearts, a God-shaped hole in their souls. Ungodly men seek to quell this gnawing pain by […]

For almost a decade a small cadre of scientists have provided evidence that the fears about global warming are a vastly overblown horde of hot air. The real concern, they say, is that we may be entering another ice age. The current furor about global warming really only began in the late 1980s, when there […]

My eldest daughter is getting to an age where reading, writing, and arithmetic is simply not enough. Not only are her interests much broader, but her firm grounding in these fundamentals means she is now able to explore more systematically God’s world by using the tools and thought processes of modern science. As the headmaster […]
