    Professor of Philosophy Antony Flew has been a renowned atheist for 50 years, travelling around universities, schools and elsewhere preaching his message. But this came to an abrupt end when he learnt about DNA. He’s not a Christian, but he has publicly repudiated his atheism. He said this: “What I ...read more

    I did a google image search for the “armour of God.” It’s extraordinary the number of diagrams and pictures devoted to this theme. For our instruction and entertainment (well, actually more for our entertainment), I’ll show you a selection. • They normally involve someone decked out somewhat like ...read more

    CHRISTMAS IN THE GREAT WAR A famous incident from WWI illustrates the nature of the Christmas season very well. It was December 1914, the first Christmas of the war.

    Dr Tim Keller is the senior minister in a church next to the world trade centre – the Redeemer Church. And he talks about a debate he was in with a Muslim scholar before a university audience.

    I’m writing school reports at the moment. It’s something I hate doing. We have a system where you’re expected to write 50-100 words per student so that in the end over all your reports you’ve written tens of thousands of words most of which begin or end with “Johhny needs to be more focused in ...read more

    The word “fool” doesn’t get as much use now as it once did. If one of my mates does something profoundly stupid I don’t usually cry out “you fool”. I might say “you are such an idiot” or “what a goose”. I’m sure many people you know would use much more colourful language than that. Fool is one of ...read more

    Just over a year ago, Kerry Packer died. You’ve probably all heard of him. Richest man in Australia, he was. When he died there were memorial services, TV specials, an outpouring of praise for this “Great Australian”. Now I’m not going to compare Packer to an Adolf Hitler, but he was like many ...read more

    It’s amazing how quickly a classroom can turn when a teacher walks out for a moment. Paper, hats, pens, shoes, glass bottles get thrown at fans. Bags get thrown out of windows. Furniture is mysteriously re-arranged so that all students are now sitting in the back corners of the room. Two of the ...read more

    Dead Poets Society is, I think, one of the best films of all time. In his first lesson with his senior class, the rather eccentric but very inspiring English teacher John Keating, played by Robin Williams, takes the boys into the foyer outside the classroom where he asks one lad by the name of ...read more

    Imagine a man standing in the middle of some train tracks, reading a newspaper. You’re standing to the side of the tracks, and you notice that he doesn’t seem to be getting off. In the distance behind him, you can see the train coming toward him, you can hear the noise it makes. Strangely, ...read more
