Don’t Blame Me; I’m a Meat Robot.

Methodological naturalism invariably draws certain conclusions. One of these notions is that we have no free will, and therefore, no culpability. We are essentially puppets hanging from genetic strings. Dr. Michael Egnor and Dr. Joshua Farris discuss this erroneous idea, as well as other failing conclusions created by ideological science.

Lewis’s life (not just Joy Gresham), and even the strange fate of C.S. Lewis’s old rooms in Oxford (you’ll never guess what’s in there now!). Plus, John tries his best to convince Norman that he should do a film version of Lewis’s sci-fi novel That Hideous Strength. Read More ›
