Full Strength Christianity

Christianity is on the decline. A recent poll found the percentage of Americans professing to be Christians declined by 7. 8% between 2007 and 2014. I’m back from Europe, where I was able to visit churches and cathedrals. Some took a century or more to build; they represent the greatest architecture and art of the…

Breakfast with Mary

August 27, 2017 | Under Journey of Faith | Posted by | No Comments

I’m back from five wonderful days in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The scenery was spectacular, and the total eclipse inspiring. Maybe someday I’ll post on how perfectly right everything has to be to get a total eclipse, and the evidence for God in that. Today I’ll share another spiritual experience, breakfast with Mary Neal. Mary is…

The Astronomy of Jesus

Two years ago I posted an item on the Star of Bethlehem. I love evidence for the truth of the Gospels. This month I gave two talks at my church (Trinity Church, Vero Beach, Florida) on the Star of Bethlehem and the Astronomy of Jesus. Here is a video of the first, which focuses on…

This week I have another amazing animal story, this time about the Monarch butterfly. Monarchs are gorgeous, and found in most parts of the United States and Canada. Scientists didn’t know where Monarchs went in the winter. We now know Monarchs from the Eastern United States and Canada spend the winter in Mexico. They migrate…

Faith, Belief, and Facts

When it sticks to science, New Scientist magazine usually does a good job. It reports experimental results in a reasonably non-technical way. But when it touches on religion, it lapses into the usual blunders. A good example is a letter recently selected as the “editors pick.” The letter claims “Science is belief based on evidence;…

Holy Week

It’s been a few weeks since my last post; I’ve been speaking at conferences. Just two weeks ago, at the Westminster Conference on Science and Faith outside Philadelphia, I met John Lennox and Michael Denton, two published and well known scholars. If you go to my Facebook “author” page https://www.facebook.com/Douglas.Ell.Author you can see our smiling…

The Star of Bethlehem

December 25, 2014 | Under Journey of Faith, Science | Posted by | No Comments

Was the Star of Bethlehem myth or fact? I am greatly indebted to Wayne Taylor of Louisiana for pointing me to Rick Larson’s excellent video on this subject. It is yet another example of modern science supporting belief in God. Computers today can reproduce how the sky looked from any point on Earth at any…
