Emil Brunner and Karl Barth Let’s Get Ready To…You Know…Over Natural Theology

An analysis of the difference in opinion over natural theology expressed by Karl Barth and Emil Brunner.

Christianity and Female Empowerment

Despite the assumption of the female to a more blessed state in the wake of the Virgin Mary, however, there has been a concerted effort through the years to point to such elements as the refusal of the Catholic Church to allow women to become priests as evidence that the stultifying patriarchy still stands as an obstacle to Christianity’s empowerment of women.

Creationism Aztec Style

There has always been a question to how so few Spanish soldiers could have dominated so many Aztec warriors, as well as questions to why Aztec emperor Montezuma acted in such an indecisive manner that probably sealed his fate. The answer may just lay in his belief in this creation myth and how the Spanish soldiers may have represented destruction of yet another world at the hand of Quetzalcoatl.

The yin and yang work together to maintain the universe in a delicate balance that thrives within a world in which darkness is as essential as light, but only through temperance in all things. Unlike the Force, however, there is no mystical prophecy of the arrival of a messiah with a whole heckuva lot of Midi-Chlorians that will arrive to bring balance to our universe.
