WORLD VIEWS: Disproving Post Modernism in One Step

In modern times, the primary objection to Natural Law has come from a collection of parallel world views which -- collectively -- have come to be known as 'post-modernism.'  The 'post modern' world view grew out of the same philosophical thinking that motivated the Fabian Socialists, the Communists  and the Progressives.  Post modernism is merely … Continue reading WORLD VIEWS: Disproving Post Modernism in One Step

LESSONS IN LOGIC: The Importance of the ‘Definition’
