  • Atheists in Praise of Christianity?

    Atheists in Praise of Christianity? If the West had not become Christian, historian Tom Holland writes, “no one would have gotten woke.” Historian Tom Holland is known primarily as a storyteller of the ancient world. Thus, his new book Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World, came as something of a surprise for several reasons. First, Tom Holland is not a Christian. Second, Holland’s book is one of the most ambitious historical defenses of Christianity in a very long time.While studying the ancient world, Holland writes, he realized something. Simply, the ancients were cruel, and their values utterly foreign...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 4/24/20 | Editorial board
    The Trump-Russia collusion narrative collapsed a year ago with the Robert Mueller report, but the story’s not over. Democrats are now trying to suppress details of how the bogus theory was promoted, led by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff. Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, under then-chairman Devin Nunes, wrapped up their investigation of election interference in April 2018. They found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians. Mr. Schiff and Democrats objected to that conclusion and accused Republicans of hiding incriminating evidence. GOP Members were therefore only too happy in September 2018 to vote to release the transcripts of...

The left-wing singer shredded Soros and power manager Scooter Braun in a lengthy Instagram message. “Hey Guys – I want to thank my fans for making me aware that my former record label is putting out an “album” of live performances of mine tonight. This recording is from a 2008 radio show performance I did when I was 18. Big...

    Road Ecology Center - UC Davis ^ | 4/1/2020 | Fraser Shilling
    Governor Newsom’s shelter-in-place order and similar orders at the jurisdictional scale had a profound effect on daily travel in California, with >20 - 50% reductions found across select highways. This in turn seems to have resulted in a ~50% reduction in total collisions and injury/fatal accidents. This unintended benefit of the orders was primarily for drivers and passengers. There was no detectable reduction in impacts to large animals reported by the CHP on state highways and certain major roads. We appreciate the critical attention to detail and complete incident reporting by the CHP and look forward to increased support for...
