Examining Nature

Is Scientism Fundamentally Flawed? Part 2

The second in a three-part series in which we examine Scientism as a worldview.

Despite holding influence in today’s culture, scientism is deeply flawed as a worldview.
Dying rose

Thinking Critically About Euthanasia

Currently, society accepts that people who are sick, elderly, or disabled, need to be cared for until their natural death. Unfortunately, where assisted dying has become a choice, staying alive to be cared for becomes optional, not the default.

But how does Deism differ from Christianity? This article will walk you through a Deist’s position on important questions such as ‘what does it mean to be human’ and ‘what happens to a person at death’.
