The Problem With Atheism According To A Secular Psychologist

Christian Discussion And Feminism: Here’s What We’re Getting Wrong

The words we use matter.

Let’s face it: Christianity is weird. We believe a dead man rose to life again (after being crucified as a common criminal). We believe that marriage is the union of one man, and one woman.

The Unexpected Lesson From My Flooded Lismore House

It all began last Thursday. The rain was bucketing down here in Lismore, thanks to the remnants of Cyclone Debbie. I was catching up with a friend at my house, when my wife Sarah comes running down the hall: ‘Akos, you better come see this – there’s water downstairs!’ I go down.

How The New Economics of Sex and Marriage Disadvantages Women

All revolutions have unexpected consequences. And the ‘free love’ sexual revolution that began in the 1960’s is no exception. Yes, there are the obvious consequences: STI’s, children born out of wedlock, a ‘pornified culture’ and so on.

What Christian Bale Could Teach Us About The “Safe Schools” Program

I saw a Christian Bale movie the other day, called ‘The Big Short’. It’s about the 2007 Global Financial Crisis (GFC). Bale plays genius hedge fund manager Michael Burry,  who – unlike the US government and Wall St –  foresees the financial collapse. Before the crisis, Bale’s character looks ‘under the hood’ of the US Housing […]

Why Do People Become Terrorists?

Why do people become terrorists? It’s an urgent question. From Nice to Pakistan, from London to Baghdad, terrorists are murdering victim after victim. And we never know where – or who – the next target will be. And so, we grasp for answers.
