    Free Republic is a fringe right-wing Christian fundamentalist site... or so they say... and they might even be right. We don't go for any of that godless left-wing big government socialist malarkey. And we do put our faith and trust in God, not government. We are pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Family, pro-Country and pro-Liberty. We do not believe that government or science knows what's best for us or our children. We will make our own decisions thank you very much. Every once in a while some group of posters get together and try to bend Free Republic to their will. Now, we...
  • The Value of Everything: Why the price of things are a mystery ISN'T a mystery

    Prices are storehouses of knowledge.​ One person whose grammar is impeccable except on the rare occasions when it isn’t is Kevin Williamson. He had a great piece the other day on the mystery of prices. I loved his opening sentence: “Prices are a mystery, and why that is is a mystery.” This reminded me of a great line from this wonderful video essay on Hayek’s “On the Use of Knowledge in Society” over at the Marginal Revolution University. It’s arguably Hayek’s most important contribution — which is saying a lot. It’s like saying Michael Jordan’s best slam dunk or Bill...

    National Review Online ^ | January 20, 2014 | Wesley J. Smith
    Animal Exceptionalism Morally Irrelevant The attack on human exceptionalism these days is unremittingand highly ideological. The latest assault on our uniqueness comes from Edge.org, which asked the worlds supposedly most brilliant minds to come up with ideas that should be retired in science. Harvard professor (of course!) Irene Pepperbergoh, so predictablyargues that the time has come to reject human uniqueness. Based on what? Pepperberg makes the obvious point that different animals also have remarkable capacities. From her essay (republished in the Guardian): Yes, humans do some things that other species do not we are indeed the only species to...

    At the risk of having at least some of what I am about to share misunderstood, I venture a few thoughts on the current Phil Robertson-Duck Dynasty -A&E story. First, it strikes me that framing it primarily as a freedom of speech issue falls short of what is really happening. The censoring of Phil Robertson is more than an attack on any mans right to speak his mindit is a matter of religious discrimination. It is part of a broad-brush attempt by some to delegitimize opinions and values rooted in a traditional view of scripturethe historical-grammatical method of interpreting and...

    The styloid process allows the hand to lock into the wrist bones, giving humans the ability to apply greater amounts of pressure to the hand. This allows humans to make and use tools. Courtesy of University of Missouri COLUMBIA, MO Humans have a distinctive hand anatomy that allows them to make and use tools. Apes and other nonhuman primates do not have these distinctive anatomical features in their hands, and the point in time at which these features first appeared in human evolution is unknown.

    The maniac who butchered a Brooklyn mom and her four young kids confessed that he did it because he was jealous of their way of life, a police source told The Post on Sunday. The family had too much. Their income (and) lifestyle was better than his, the source said. The bloody suspect was caught holding the kitchen knife he used during the Saturday night rampage inside the Sunset Park apartment where he had been staying with the victims, the source added. Ming Dong Chen, 25, an illegal alien from China, was nabbed as he fled out the front door...

    <p>Parents who yell at their adolescent children for misbehaving can cause some of the same problems as hitting them would, including increased risk of depression and aggressive behavior, according to a new study.</p> <p>A good, warm relationship with Mom and Dad doesn't protect teens from the negative effects of parents' yelling, cursing or lobbing insults, such as calling teens "lazy" or "stupid," the study found.

    It is only by understanding the neural laws that dictate human activity in all spheres in law, morality, religion and even economics and politics, no less than in art that we can ever hope to achieve a more proper understanding of the nature of man. to suggest that the human brain responds in a particular way to art risks creating criteria of right or wrong, either in the art itself or in individual reactions to it. .... experience suggests that scientists studying art find it hard to resist drawing up rules for critical judgements.

    American Thinker ^ | March 18, 2013 | J. Richard Pearcey
    Author and MSNBC host S.E. Cupp made news in the run-up to CPAC 2013 by withdrawing as a speaker from the annual conservative confab. Her complaint against CPAC is that it would not allow pro-homosexual "marriage" organizations to sponsor the event. Cupp identifies herself as a "proponent of gay rights," and on MSBNC she said "marriage equality" is a "major issue Republicans can no longer seem to avoid." "CPAC's decision to sideline GOProud and Log Cabin Republicans makes me increasingly uncomfortable,"she said."Until the conference stops shaming some of its most valuable advocates, it's unfortunately not an event I can take...

    International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that 19 children, who were to be sold to fundamentalist Islamic boarding schools (madrassas), have been rescued. Traffickers lied to the childrens parents, saying they would take the children to Christian boarding schools in Dhaka, when in fact, they were intending to sell the children to various madrassas. Students from Dhaka University discovered the children and rescued them. This is not the first instance of Christian children being trafficked to madrassas, as upwards of 150 children have been rescued from similar situations since July 2012.

    A national radio host made an excellent suggestion the other day that we conservatives should pursue with vigor. The Oppressive-left loves to use simple talking point slogans to hammer their lies into the publics conscious. These simpleton lies are designed to crowd out real thought and logic of the truth. It is about time for our side to get on board and come up with our own talking point slogans we can all use to hammer the truth into them (rhetorically speaking of course) This posting is to advance that idea and get the ball rolling. The technique Oppressives is...

    The new standard for teaching science in public schools should prohibit teaching religious beliefs like evolution as if they were the equivalent of scientific theories. Science should be defined as using experimentation and observation to discover information about physical reality. Explanations of what happened in the ancient past cannot be verified using experimentation and observation. ----------advertisement----------- Contrary to a popular myth pushed by those who want to make science a substitute for religion, science has yet to produce a new explanation for the development of life or the origin of the universe. The idea that the universe came out of...

    Bill Nye, the so-called "science guy," recently said that the teaching of creation to young people is harmful. I beg to differ. Does anyone remember Columbine? The shooters were not wearing Christian T-shirts. They were wearing evolutionary t-shirts touting "natural selection." These losers apparently believed that if they were only the results of mutation and natural selection over millions of years, with no God or afterlife, then why not vent their anger and go out with a bang? ----------advertisement----------- It's little wonder that they were fans of Adolf Hitler, another avid disciple of Darwin, and committed their atrocities on his...

    A black Christian Obama voter called me after the election. For years, I have informed him of Obama's attacks on Christianity and anti-Christian agenda. He praised Romney for saying in his concession speech that we need to pray for our president. Then he added, I prayed that God will bind everything in Obama that is not like Him. Folks I politely, but quickly, ended our conversation. I was sickened by my friend's weak attempt to cover his sell-out to skin-color under a shroud of Christian principles. This guy had the audacity to quote Bible scripture about how Christians are commanded...

    Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 In Against the Heathen, early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and haughtiness preceded mans fall into idolatry and paganism. A haughty spirit led them to make light of higher things, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things. The truth as to evil said Athanasius, .is that it originates, and...
  • Poll: Almost half in U.S. creationist

    PRINCETON, N.J., June 2 (UPI) -- The percentage of U.S. residents who believe God created human beings less than 10,000 years ago has changed little in the past 30 years, a Gallup poll says. In a report Friday, the Gallup organization said 46 percent held that view in the most recent poll. In 1982, when Gallup first asked the question, the percentage was 44 percent and the average over the years has been 45 percent. The poll was conducted for USA Today. Almost one-third, 32 percent, said humans have evolved over millions of years with divine guidance, down from an...

    "Giant mammals roamed North America during the Ice Age, but were humans among them? A site in Vero Beach on Florida's East coast contains mammoth, mastodon, giant ground slothand human fossils. The problem is that humans were not yet supposed to have been there, according to the standard story told to generations of archaeologists. When discovered in the early 1900s, researchers insisted that the Vero Beach human remains washed in long after the large mammals fossilized. But new results, like so many other similar reinvestigations of old sites, show they were made at the same time and that humans lived...
