1] For the scientist and skeptic

David Berlinski (Who responded to Richard Dawkin’s book, The God Delusion, with his own book called, The Devil’s Delusion):

“Has anyone provided a proof of God’s inexistence?
Not even close.

Has quantum cosmology explained the emergence of the universe or why it is here?
Not even close.

Have the sciences explained why our universe seems to be fine-tuned to allow for the existence of life?
Not even close.

Are physicists and biologists willing to believe in anything so long as it is not religious thought?
Close enough.

Has rationalism in moral thought provided us with an understanding of what is good, what is right, and what is moral?
Not close enough.

Has secularism in the terrible twentieth century been a force for good?
Not even close to being close.

Is there a narrow and oppressive orthodoxy of thought and opinion within the sciences?
Close enough.

Does anything in the sciences or in their philosophy justify the claim that religious belief is irrational?
Not even ballpark.

Is scientific atheism a frivolous exercise in intellectual contempt?
Dead on.”

2] For the world thinker and philosopher

“And I promise you I say this to you very sincerely, the more I know of Him, the more I read the Gospels, the epistles and letters, the more I read in the scriptures, the more I understand that the other world views are not even close to being close. That in Christ you have this comprehensive explanation for the four deepest questions of life. Do you know what those four questions are? Origin, meaning, morality and destiny. How did I come to be? What point of reference  do I find for meaning? How do I differentiate between good and evil? What happens to a human being when he or she dies? He answers to those four questions, when you find answers that are correspondingly true to the individual questions; and when all of the questions are put together, you have a coherent set of answers.” -Thoughts from Ravi Zacharias, apologetic, evangelist and philosopher (Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, RZIM)

3] For the woman who needs relationship advice

Love Letters to Kellie-Kidd Kraddick in the Morning

This is what I have learned the older I get: I don’t want a man who I have to beg to go out with me, and be nice to me and call me. When a man wants you; a man lets you know he wants you. He pursues you, he chases you, and he buys you laptops. And that is what happens when a man likes you, so don’t try to make something happen when it’s not there.”-Kellie Rasberry
