The World is Getting Better– Thank Capitalism for It

I am a natural pessimist but even I have to admit, the world is getting better. Sure we have problems, the decline of Christianity, a crazy North Korea, ISIS, an imperialist Russia, and leftists, but on balance, we are still better off than we were thirty years ago. The Soviet Union and many of their allies collapsed and communism is now a joke. Economically, the … Continue reading The World is Getting Better– Thank Capitalism for It

Why The Founding Fathers Were Wrong

The hallmark of our liberal republic is the federal congressional presidency established by the Constitution as a replacement to the Articles of Confederation. The Founders did not completely agree over how the new government should have looked like. Although the consensus at the Constitutional Convention was that there ought to be a distinct legislative and executive branch in order to maintain a separation of powers and divided … Continue reading Why The Founding Fathers Were Wrong

A constitutional referendum was held throughout Turkey on 16 April 2017, on whether to approve 18 proposed amendments to the Turkish constitution that were brought forward by the governing Justice and Development Party and the Nationalist Movement Party.

Muslim women endorse wife beating

“Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband`s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advice them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once … Continue reading Muslim women endorse wife beating

Debunking Anti-Christian Anti-Easter Myths

Last Christmas I debunked eight anti-Christmas myths. This Easter, I wanted to add a supplementary article on Easter to the list. This article will cover both myths on Eater specifically, but also on the founding of Christianity. Sadly, or thankfully, there are way fewer myths that relate to Easter enough for them to get an article. Easter is based on the pagan god Ishtar Should … Continue reading Debunking Anti-Christian Anti-Easter Myths

Kyrie Eleison: A Response to Eastern Orthodoxy

First of all, I would like to thank the publishers of The Credible Hulk for granting me the opportunity to write this response to an article that recently appeared on their website, which attempted to present a defense of Eastern Orthodox theology.  It is my intention to respond to their arguments, and explain why Eastern Orthodoxy cannot possibly be the True Church established by Christ. … Continue reading Kyrie Eleison: A Response to Eastern Orthodoxy

North Korea Ready to Respond Strongly to United States, Officials Say

North Korea on Tuesday denounced the “foolish” deployment of the US Navy along the Korean peninsula, and warned that the regime is prepared to respond with “the powerful force of arms” if necessary. The sending of an aircraft carrier and its escort to the area by Washington “comes to prove that the foolish movements of the United States to invade the Democratic People’s Republic of … Continue reading North Korea Ready to Respond Strongly to United States, Officials Say

Catholicism vs Protestantism: An Orthodox Perspective

My colleagues Chip, Roman, and Sara have kicked off a debate over Catholicism and Protestantism at the Credible Hulk magazine. I would like to give a third, Eastern Orthodox perspective to the debate. For those who don’t know much about the Eastern Orthodox church, here is a quick (but certainly incomplete) brief. The Orthodox Church is a communion of Autocephalous churches who broke away from the Catholic Church in 1054; … Continue reading Catholicism vs Protestantism: An Orthodox Perspective

No, Western Civilization is not based on the Ten Commandments

You often hear fundamentalists say that the Ten Commandments should be placed in public spaces because they are the basis of our whole legal system. But how true is this claim? Let`s go through them one by one, and see how true they are. 1. You shall have no other gods before me. 2. You shall not make idols. 3. You shall not take the … Continue reading No, Western Civilization is not based on the Ten Commandments

The Case for the Catholic Church

Recently our Protestant co-author on the site laid out the case for Protestantism for an on-site debate. While we recognize that not all Protestants hold all these belief, as there are many variations of it (something we believe is a problem in itself), we are designing an article to present a case for Catholicism and against Protestantism, and we simply cannot address every nuance. We … Continue reading The Case for the Catholic Church
