by Liam Scheff What we don’t understand (because we don’t see the road leading from antiquity to the present) is that what we call “Scientists” are actually priests to the god of petroleum. Everything we do, eat, touch, see, taste, have, wear, share and think we love...

But it’s Science!

“But it’s science!” “I don’t believe in myths! I believe in science!” go the common arguments against critics of science. But, what is science?

Conspiracy Realist – Video

Become a Conspiracy Realist by Liam Scheff We Americans aren’t terribly good students of history. We are, in fact, more enamored with the myth of our country, and now, with the digital and artificial worlds of internet, movies and television, than we are with the actual history...

Martin Luther, Part One

  • “Since we your Majesty and your lordships desire a simple reply, I will answer without distinctions…. Unless I am convicted by the testimony of Sacred Scripture or by evident Reason (I do not accept the authority of popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other), my conscience is captive to the word of God.”
  • I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against my conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.”

Show Mercy to the Slender Grass

Raphael and The School of Athens

There, on the wall directly facing the apotheosis of theology in the Disputa, is the glorification of philosophy: Plato of the Jovelike brow, deep eyes, flowing white hair and beard, with a finger pointing upward to his perfect state; Aristotle walking quietly beside him, thirty years younger, handsome and cheerful, holding out his hand with a downward palm, as if to bring his master’s soaring idealism back to earth and the possible;
