    I’m guessing that apologist and philosopher William Lane Craig would agree with this Townhall article. Here he argues for the meaninglessness of values and life in general without God (not, of course, an argument for the existence of God – which is another issue. Simply for what follows from the non-existence of God).

    James White has been saying that this current society is one of God’s lifting of His hand from us.

    • It’s astonishing. In the West we hire public workers paid by the taxpayer to tear down our traditional cultural/religious symbols. In the Islamic State the terrorists do the same thing but without taxpayer money. I guess ISIS isn’t unionized yet!

    It’s like Rome before the fall.

    And in today’s edition of the decline of the West, lets look at Toronto. The media is covering up the stabbing of a man in Toronto. They say its a religious argument, two people who know each other, or anything but islam. Downtown Toronto is shut down right now because of a demonstration by a motley crew of young leftists, blacks, and whiny indians that want pipelines shut down and hydro dams scrapped. Because we should all revert back to the superior indian culture of Disney like living with nature. Meanwhile one of the last mental hospitals in Ontario has admitted that 25 mentally ill inmates including violent offenders have escaped from the Toronto facility. They were just made to admit it now because they didn’t want people getting the wrong impression about the mentally ill.

    • These people are so stupid — there’s nothing romantic about traditional Indian culture. It’s an incredibly rough life.

      In my youth I actually hiked through the Central American jungles and spent time with an almost-extinct band called the “Sumo” (also known as Tawahka or Mayangna). They dressed in tree fibers (made from beating rocks on the bark of the “tuno” tree). Studied the language and the works. Poisonous snakes, disease-ridden bugs, venomous plants that if you inadvertently brushed against would leave you swollen for days. And God help you if you get a cut or a scrape — infections become gangrenous rapidly in the tropics.

      These whiners wouldn’t even survive the three-day trek through dense jungle to get there in the first place, much less the actual living conditions. You have to be in top physical condition and psychologically capable of enduring acute deprivation.

      That’s no reflection on the Indians themselves who are quite admirable, but if you’re a lazy-ass gringo accustomed to Disneyland the admiration will definitely not be reciprocated. It’s survival mode only, and you better be capable of lending a hand. Not a tourist destination. And no, it’s nothing like that show called “Survivor” — the stupidest facsimile I’ve ever seen.

        Heh. “Survivor” idiots couldn’t handle springtime in Muskoka outdoors. The bugs would carry them away.

        • Heck, I’m not sure I could handle Algonquin Park again — mosquitoes definitely worse than the tropics.

        I should add that one would be very hard pressed to find a “Native” any where in North America capable of living off the land without Western tools and equipment today, and North America includes Canada, the United States and Mexico.
