Hundreds of Proofs of the Non-Existence of God

The brilliant philosopher at has come up with hundreds of proofs for the non-existence God. They are a brilliant response to another website called Hundreds of Proofs of God's Existence.

Some of my favs:

(1) You cannot prove that there is meaning in life.
(2) Therefore, there is no meaning in life.
(3) That's what life is about.
(4) Therefore, God does not exist.

(1) Atheist: "There is no God."
(2) Theist: "Prove it."
(3) Atheist: "You can't prove a negative."
(4) Theist: "Yes you can: you can prove that square circles don't exist, that this ball I'm about to drop won't float to the ceiling, that the word 'Yidjakqg' isn't in this dictionary."
(5) Atheist: "Nice work at trying to change the subject. I'm talking about God. Not 'square circles' and crap like that."
(6) Therefore, God does not exist.

I personally know someone who uses the following proof:

(1) If you are a Christian, then you're a geek.
(2) Geeks are unpopular at school; no one cares about them.
(3) The popular kids are not Christian.
(4) So you shouldn't be either, if you want to be popular.
(5) Therefore, God does not exist.

(1) If God exists then I would know it.
(2) I do not know it.
(3) And I don't care if other people know it.
(4) Therefore, God does not exist.

The Three Kings: A Play for Christmas

Frances Chesterton's best play (in my opinion) so far (there are 2 more I haven't even seen yet!! But I know they exist-) is about a triple Three Kings thing.

First, the tradition they have in Spain where the kids put out hay for the camels, because they believe the three kings will pass by on their way to Bethlehem. They still do this today, and parent's give the children gifts if they've been good and put out the hay.

Second, the story of three princes, all vying for the throne in Spain, where the King has just died, the heir, the Prince has just died, and the Queen now has to appoint the next King. Which of the three will be the next King? You have to read the play to find out.

Then the third story is the story of the actual Three Kings, the one that you well know.

 So, if you're looking for something to read together as a family Christmas Day, or if you have a book club that wants to read something in parts, or if you are part of a Local Chesterton Society and need something special for your Christmas gathering, this is definitely a good possibility. You can download a portion and see what it's like on your Kindle. And check out the beautiful cover my daughter designed for me!

The Mystery of Harry Potter Returns

It is about time The Mystery of Harry Potter became an ebook, don't you think? I think so too. It has been six years, and although Harry Potter is no longer new, and although J.K. Rowling said more than she should have about Dumbledore, I still enjoy reading Harry Potter when the mood behooves me. Only now I read them on my Kindle, still checked out from my local library. Entering the world of Harry Potter is not unlike entering the world of the Lord of the Rings, or Narnia—or Star Trek or Star Wars for that matter.

Although certainly not as popular as they once were, still, Harry Potter is popular. They just came out with new cover editions, so people are still interested.

And young Catholic families still have to discern whether or not to let their kids read Harry Potter. You still hear rumors that the books are bad. J.K. Rowling is bad. You still hear the books are good, the story is good, reading the story with your children is good. That's me, I say that.

Later today, the Kindle edition should be live. Look for it. Read the books together.

This is a new book, and it's really important. Floriani is a Chestertonian who is, as Dale Ahlquist says, a Complete Thinker. This book will take you to places you've never been and get your imagination flowing with ideas of how YOU can put the principle of subsidiarity to practical use in your life starting the moment you read it. It opened my eyes to the practical and common sense principle that should rule all our lives and work and government and neighborhoods and legal situations and more.

My review:
Anyone desiring to know and understand the principle of Subsidiarity must read this book. Not only does it explain the theoretical idea, but the author provides real life examples that clearly illustrate Subsidiarity in action in today's world.

It would be a benefit for all students high school to college to read. All college professors should read. Anyone who owns a business should read. Anyone who works should read--especially those in management. Anyone in government should read. All law students and lawyers should read. Anyone who has a family should read.

Subsidiarity is a principle few understand and till now there was little by way of explanation. This book fills that void. Highly Recommended.
