... , the evidence of chapter 4 could alternatively be read as an implicit case for non-Darwinian saltational evolution. Sadly, Hadd overlooks this, possibly because it conforms with neither his religious convictions nor his crusade against the general' theory of Darwinism.

' This gives an excellent survey of the Foundations of the American Experiment' (in ordered liberty and self-government), stressing the commitment of the Founding Fathers to religion and morality as the indispensable supports to political prosperity.

... . Yet the "facts" themselves were but interpretations, based on such assumptions as that there are reliable accounts of real events at the bottom of myths, folklore, religious texts. Scientists, as a result of sometimes bitter experience, are wary even of facts obtained under strictly controlled conditions with inanimate objects of well-defined character; inevitably they ... scientist has put it [28: io8], science is irrelevant to "the underlying metaphysical and moral truths by which one lives The nineteenth-century belief that science could invalidate religion was as wrong as the earlier view that science could validate religion.

... is not this kind of theology which is criticised by the convinced atheists of today, but the older and more popular anthropomorphic type, and it is this latter kind of religious belief which has long been abandoned, presumably, by thinking Christians. (I am concerned here of course with the conceptual framework of religion, rather than with any ... of religious experience upon which a person's f aith as opposed to his F aith may be based, which is ultimately the only satisfactory basis for Christian belief, properly speaking.

... Subbas or Mandoyo, near Basrah, where Turkey joins Persia, those of Sliuslitar (the ancient Susa) are looked up to by the rest as being better educated in religious and other ways.

... two chronologically distinct parts. Bible research meanwhile holds that the complete Abraham-Isaac legend was "originally one myth against human sacrifice on Moriah,"12 an approach so bound to religious tradition it cannot take into consideration that Abraham's achievement is in completely overcoming such a tradition.

Eustasy and Impacts Scenarios involving ...
