Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

New John Hopkins Report - No Scientific Evidence That People Are Born Gay or Transgender

Distinguished scholars from John Hopkins have released a new detailed report here entitled "Sexuality & Gender; Findings From the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences". They argue there is not enough definitive scientific evidence available to suggest that gay, lesbian and transgender individuals are born with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity. In the three-part report published by The New Atlantis, Lawrence Mayer, a scholar-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University's psychiatry department and a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University, and Paul McHugh, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins, take on prevailing claims that sexual orientation and gender dysphoria are caused by natural traits.
Additionally, the scholars challenge the claim that discrimination and social stigma is the sole reason why those with same-sex attractions or transgender identity suffer higher rates of mental health problems.

Of course, don't expect to hear anything about this in the mainstream media which has brought into the fantasy of "transgenderism" and "gender fluidity" lock, stock & barrel. Undoubtedly the political progressive elites who are firmly ensconced in their concocted worldview will also ignore it.

When one repeatedly and consciously rejects evidence that their worldview conclusions are wrong, common sense goes out the window. The door to insanity opens.
