“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Sunday Scripture: The Way of Wisdom

Sunday Scripture: The Way of Wisdom

Wisdom has built her house;    she has hewn her seven pillars.2 She has slaughtered her beasts; she has mixed her wine;    she has also set her table.3 She has sent out her young women to call    from the highest places in the town,4 “Whoever is simple, let him turn...
A hole with lots of narratives

A hole with lots of narratives

This year is going to be remembered for a LOT of horrible, terrible, awful, no good, very bad things. The Coof and subsequent lockdowns were the shit-sundae, and there were lots of cherries piled on top of that throughout the year. But, in the fields of Christian...
Beware of false prophets

Beware of false prophets

The latest episode of the podcast is up and running. This week, I start off by discussing the latest news from the SCOTUS, with the passing of Justice Ginsburg, and the likely ramifications thereof. I then segue into a topic that I mentioned in the Domain Query...
Domain Query: The missing Arab armies

Domain Query: The missing Arab armies

Commenter Sasha Hrongmitts had a rather interesting follow-up question to my last post about the early history of Islam: Are you sure the Persian Empire used Arabs as troops against the Byzantines? I could be mistaken, but I thought one of the reasons the Arabs were...

Listeners to my podcast will recall that I did a two-part series a few weeks ago called “One Man, One Book”, examining the historicity of the so-called “Religion of Peace”. I did it a bit bassackwards, and I’ll cop to that without...

Identifying the enemy

I normally don’t spend too much time worrying about what Laura Ingraham has to say about most things. I like and respect her a lot, but I generally find her commentary to be considerably less interesting than that of #BasedTucker, who is easily the best colour...

The almost-solution

In the fourth chapter of his superb book, The Great Heresies, the Catholic apologist and debater Hillaire Belloc – of whom I have written very favourably in the past, and with very good reason – explored the Albigensian or Cathar Heresy against the...
