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

The Never Ending Fantasy To Find Alien Life

Here's the latest in the never-ending quest to find alien life entitled "Life existed on Mars, shocking discovery suggests". See here. The discovery of the chemical element boron on Mars means life must have existed on Mars. Preposterous deductive reasoning. This shows how desperate naturalists are to confirm their delusional worldview. This false claim is now made so regularly that I'm getting tired of writing about it. As I wrote previously,

The existence of alien life would validate their cherished belief that life can (and did) arise spontaneously by itself here on Earth. And if it happened here, then it must have also happened elsewhere in this seemingly infinite universe given the 14 billion years they currently consign as the age of the cosmos.

But what if we are alone in the cosmos and there is no alien life elsewhere? It is the death knell for their theory of origins and leaves only one other option that is devastating to their worldview - special creation by an omnipotent Creator. Thus, the stampede with ever increasing urgency to find alien life which in their minds would finally vindicate their position and prove the fallacy of a creator God.

In a forlorn bid to cover all the bases, some nautralists are cautiously advocating that if alien life does exist, it might be "extremely rare". See here.
