Various and Sundry

  • It's probably not a good idea to add up the genealogies in Genesis in order to find the age of the earth (link).
  • Bnonn Tennant offers some constructive criticism of Michael Heiser's latest (link, link).
  • Covenantal arguments for infant baptism are based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the nature of the New Covenant (link).
  • Walter Block argues that, among current presidential contenders, Rand Paul is still the best on foreign policy, with Trump a close second. Block "I acknowledge that Mr. Trump has been really good on foreign policy of late. He is no Ron Paul, but, then, no one else in the running is either. The Donald has questioned U.S. foreign policy in a plethora of instances, and pretty much always takes the correct libertarian point of view in terms of militarism, imperialism, foreign adventurism, etc. . . . But, Rand, too, has been doing pretty well on this score!" (link)
  • Speaking of Trump, it seems he really is self-funding his campaign (link).
  • The problem with saying that biblical language about God is only analogical and never univocal is that every analogy must be based on a univocal element between two like things. Otherwise, one is left with pure equivocation (link). 
  • What is it like to be the child of a dictator? (link)
  • The federal government's war on poverty has resulted in more poverty. The war on drugs has resulted in more drugs. Can anyone guess what the war on cancer will do? (link).
