A New Myth for the World – New Book by James Hilgendorf

Tweet The world is in turmoil, and the foundations of our millennia-old religions have crumbled.  Daily, the eye of science reaches farther out into the cosmos, and deeper into the world of sub-atomic matter, and yet we seem to be alone in an uncaring universe. The old myths are shattered, but the old questions remain.  [...]

Among Neanderthals

Tweet In antediluvian times – going back several hundred thousand years, men and women roamed the landscape – called Neanderthal, not quite human, but a subspecies of the genus Homo, closely related to all of us today.

Gazing through our own eyes, though, into the same mirror, we see only baby steps we have taken, and hear the voices [...]

Evolution – The Eye That Can Truly See
