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

As improbable as a snowball in hell

I've always been fascinated by mechanical watches. They measure time, the most intriguing aspect of creation for me. They also stand as mute testimony to ingenious creative skill of a watchmaker. They are neither the product of an explosion in a junkyard, nor the result of eons of sunlight operating on iron ore laying on the surface of the Earth. Anyone with common sense instinctively knows a watch simply cannot "evolve" through natural selection, random chance and time. The video above traces the development of the world's most complicated watch, the pinnacle of mechanical watch development. The cost of this watch? $2.6 million (see here). Watch it to appreciate what is required in terms of resources, skill, knowledge and power to create this incredibly complex mechanism.

But as stunning as this watch is, it pales in comparison to the simplest living cell. Watch this ...

Adherents of the theory of evolution practice a form of religion, taking on faith something which is as improbable as a snowball in hell.
