Billy Graham on the Bible and Alien Life

Billy Graham died yesterday at the ripe old age of 99 years. He was perhaps the greatest evangelist the world has ever witnessed.

Famous Creation Scientists Who Believed in Aliens

“Tony Breeden, we know about your lone wolf views on aliens.

Early Fundamentalist Exotheology

Fundamentalism is used as a by-word these days and perhaps much of their reputation is deserved. I used to joke that I was trying to put the “fun” back into fundamentalism because the “duh” and the “mental” were already well covered. Originally, Christian fundamentalism wasn’t about mangling the doctrine of separation to justify a cloistered…
