Posting has been a bit sporadic recently as I’ve been working behind the scenes on a fairly major project. Scott and I are adding a resource site to the blog. I’ve dubbed it V Sources and so far Scott hasn’t objected. There is now a button on the main nav with that name. Click it for a list of what’s available. It’s a short list now, but it will be growing.
The idea of V Sources is to provide some fairly long (and hopefully conclusive ) arguments on topics which seem to come up around the blogoshpere. These are the sort of things that wouldn’t fit in an average blog post. In fact they warrant there own table of contents.
For instance, there is a tongue in cheek adage known as Godwin’s Law, which states:
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.
The issue of Hitler’s religious beliefs is an especially hot topic. It represents one of many ongoing free fire zones between atheists and Christians on the web. We know this from experience since, on at least a few occasions, the fire fight has spilled on to our blog.
With that in mind, the very first V Sources page is titled The Truth About Hitler. This isn’t a rant or my opinion, it’s a page loaded with excerpts from primary sources, all of them linked so you can verify the facts for yourself. Next time you hear someone say “Hitler was a Christian!” send them to this page.
The second V Sources page is also available starting today. Titled The Truth About the End of Days, it is an examination of Jesus teaching about his second coming. For those familiar with theological terminology, it’s an argument for a preterist interpretation of Christian eschatology. We encourage anyone committed to the Left Behind view of the future to consider the arguments made on this page (actually pages).
Finally, the assembling of pages of this size has undoubtedly resulted in some scribal errors, i.e. missing words or letters, typos of other kinds. If you find one, kindly let us know via the contact form. We’ll squash the lexical bugs as we find them.
