PLOT SUMMARY Fourth-graders George Beard and Harold Hutchins aren’t bad boys, but they do like pulling pranks. They also enjoy hanging out in their tree house, creating a comic strip about a superhero in underwear. The boys regularly sneak into the school office to make copies of their Captain Underpants comics, which they sell on the playground for […]
Theistic evolutionists (TEs) believe that God created through evolution – natural selection. This means that sin and death were present almost from the advent of life. This implies several things:
According to Islamic scholars, Muslims worldwide ought to follow Sharia law. However, it is hard to understand what Sharia law is, and more importantly how to find a consensus. Many pro-Sharia writers are giving misinformed reasons for why the West should tolerate Sharia law. The Huffington Post states that “Asking a Muslim to stop believing […]
