A friend asked me questions about the historical Jesus. Was he important? Is he still important? If so, why? I’ve written much about Jesus over the years. My emphasis is often on the importance of revering Jesus as an example, the principal...

<p>I often write on the intersection between technology and theology. Yet, sometimes, I veer off this framework when I believe there is some important that needs to be said. I do this sparingly because I want to honor the focus of this portal. It also...

A friend asked for my thoughts on &#x201c; The Spaceships of Ezekiel &#x201d; by Josef F. Blumrich in 1974. I hadn&#x2019;t heard of the book before. But the topic sounded fun, even if speculative in a way that warrants skepticism. So I decided to give it...
