As a premise, it does not make sense to believe that there was no existence at any reference. Logic dictates that something cannot come from nothing; therefore, something has always existed in some way, shape, or form. Plato’s theory of forms is an attempt to understand the nature of reality. Understanding the theory of forms … Continue reading Plato’s Theory of Forms
One of the first things that grasped my attention was from the "God of Islam" article where it read that the bible "has been corrupted and therefore cannot be considered reliable." The reason of interest rests with the similarities between Islam, Jehovah's Witness (JW), and Mormonism. I realize it may seem strange to compare these three; however, … Continue reading Islam’s Misrepresentation of the deity of Christ

Some religions claim "Christian," but they change the deity … Continue reading An Understanding of the Trinity Doctrine

I do not think it is power that necessarily corrupts a person merely because a person rises to a position of power. Instead, I believe humans are born with an innate sense of imperfect morality. We possess a consciousness of moral law, which sets us apart from animals, making humans significant. Christian theologians would use … Continue reading Does Power Corrupt Absolutely?
I enjoy the expression of logical fallacies being the Achilles hill of critical thinking. It is interesting how sometimes the mind subtly conveys its ideas with illustrations of combat. The Achilles hill causes the mind to reflect on a historical warrior and the method of his defeat. Once the Achilles hill is crippled, the entire … Continue reading Political Ads Logical Fallacies
Introduction Christian men dominated the medieval period with outstanding theological and philosophical writings. Women's writings in theology and philosophy were scarce as it was not customary for women to teach and receive theological training.
