My Final Blog…Our First Podcast

I began writing this weekly blog on November 2, 2016. Now, 52 months and 216 posts later, I’m posting my last regular blog (though I may post again now and then if something catches my fancy that I just have to write about!)

How Not To Be a Chronological Snob (Post 16)

I’ve been discussing the thirteenth shift in thinking that came about during the Enlightenment and that shapes us to this day. Unfortunately, all these shifts had negative consequences for people of faith. For several weeks now I’ve been looking at the shift from facts to values in many areas of knowledge.
