David Ray Griffin is one of the world’s most important thinkers. I first encountered his work in the mid-1990s while preparing a Ph.D. on Moroccan Sufi legends. It quickly dawned on me that Griffin’s analysis of postmodernism was more sensible than most of the trendier literature on the subject, while his work on such empirical... Read More
It's that time again. There's been another horrific high-profile mass shooting. And as usual, all the nonsense that typically circulates when that happens is circulating again. "We need more gun control!" "The problem is mental illness!" Or "it's not mental illness!" "It's racism!" Chris Harper Mercer added another layer to the matter – the fact... Read More
Unlike many commenters in this space, I don't particularly lament the secular rise of "universalism" that has occurred in Northwestern European societies (and their derivatives).

As some of you know, and probably most of you don't, I am an atheist. It is the only logical conclusion based on the principle of demanding proof before regarding things as true, as many would tell you (also here). That said, some intellectuals would argue that not believing in any sort of creative force... Read More
Last week John Derbyshire posted on NRO a justification for his atheism, a comment that brought forth a thunderous response on this website from a devout Catholic John Zmirak. Having read both these commentaries, it seems that neither is entirely convincing. Zmirak goes after those who treat sociobiology as the key to human behavior; in... Read More
