Science and Religion (Creation, Evolution, Skepticism)

Reasons to Believe
Information about Hugh Ross's excellent work on science and religion. There are sound reasons to believe.
Affiliation of Christian Geologists
Their page provides useful links to topics of science and creation. One article I like, for example, is an article on the (old) age of the earth by C. Gordon Winder.
A great resource that sprang from the USENET group. Covers issues relating to evolution - mostly from the mainstream scientific view ("pro-evolution"). I believe God is the Creator - but open-minded Christians should have nothing to fear from genuine science. One interesting essay at is "Jury-rigged design in nature?" which shows interesting examples of "flaws" in the design of various species which are construed to argue against design. I disagree, however: see my comments on design flaws.
Science and Mormon Religion
My page, aimed at LDS people seeking to understand the relationship between science and faith.
American Scientific Affiliation
A fellowship of men and women in science and disciplines that relate to science who share a common fidelity to the Word of God and a commitment to integrity in the practice of science.

LDS Links ("Mormon")

Items relevant to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.See my more complete list of LDS Resources if you're interested in this sort of thing.

My pages:

Jeff's LDS Intro Page
Introduction to the Book of Mormon
Evidences for the Book of Mormon
One of my most important works, regularly updated and filled with heavy information (IMHO). A most amazing book - and an authentic ancient document that testifies of Christ.
Mormon Answers: LDS FAQ
Fairly extensive, with links to many "Mormon Answers (LDS FAQ)" pages. These pages give answers to frequently asked questions about Latter-day Saint beliefs. This is based on my e-mail correspondence with numerous inquirers (and critics). My own views - so beware! One of newest offerings there is 2 Nephi 12 and the Septuagint: Evidence for Fraud or Authenticity in the Book of Mormon?, which may be the first place where the issue of "paired tricola" in the Book of Mormon has been addressed.
Faith, Grace, and Works - my (LDS) perspective
The text of a rather heavy theological discourse I gave to a congregation in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1995. Includes a link to a separate page listing key scriptures for study on this topic.
Does DNA Evidence Refute the Book of Mormon?
A lengthy and heavily documented article (260 kB of text, about 80 pages or so) in my LDSFAQ area dealing with the bogus claim that DNA testing of Native Americans proves that the migrations described in the Book of Mormon did not occur. A PDF version of this article was once posted at the Church's Website in the newsroom section on DNA.
Ancient Records Offer New Support for the Book of Abraham
Surveys some of the vast body of ancient documents that confirm numerous details in the Book of Abraham that are not found in the Bible, and could not have been known to Joseph Smith. This is actually Part 3 of three pages dealing with common questions and objections to the Book of Abraham. Part 1 deals primarily with questions about the source of the Book of Abraham, including a discussion of the original scrolls and the existing papyrus fragments, as well as the Egyptian papers. Part 2 deals with the content of the book and Joseph Smith's comments on three Egyptian drawings that have been attached to the published Book of Abraham.
The Mormon Temple and Free Masonry: Is the LDS Temple Derived from the Masons?
An essay exploring the ancient nature of the restored and revealed modern LDS (Mormon) Temple concept.
LDS Articles of Faith
My Home Page

External links:
Detailed responses to many anti-Mormon criticisms. Rich, interesting material that will give you plenty to think about.
Online genealogy information - one of the greatest resources on the Web, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Maxwell Institute (formerly FARMS)
The Maxwell Institute (formerly the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies) is an excellent scholarly group that publishes and promotes serious studies related to the Book of Mormon, ancient Christianity, and ancient religion in general, with relevance to LDS issues. I am thrilled with the quality and scholarship of most The Maxwell Institute materials, including the works of Hugh Nibley, John Welch, and John Sorensen.
Condemnation of The God Makers
By Christian and Jewish leaders.

Other Christian Sources

Rich source of information about many religions, including but not limited to many branches of Christianity.

Thousands of articles..
Bible Gateway
Many translations of the Bible and additional study materials.

Other religion and philosophy sources

A great new way to explore the Quran (Koran).
Islamic Studies, Islam, Arabic, and Religion
This site from Dr. Alan Godlas, professor of religion at the University of Georgia, gives scholarly resources on Islam and related subjects. The main body of the site has twelve sections of annotated links, which span maps, art, women's rights, the Qur'an, history, and more.


The scariest site on the web: US National Debt Clock
Find out what you and your family owe! Watch it grow, watch spending spin out of control! Watch your hope for the future fade right before your eyes. Delightful. Hours, no decades of fun!
Shadow Government Statistics
Find out what is really happening to inflation, unemployment, GDP, and other areas where the government is motivated to manipulate the statistics.
Vote Smart
Info on Congressional voting records, grouped by state. Find out how different groups rate your Senator or Representative. Are they upholding the Constitution?

A libertarian think tank. This web site features the Institute's publications catalogue, articles from the Cato Policy Report and recent congressional testimony.
U.S. House of Representatives
Atomic Bomb: Decision (Hiroshima-Nagasaki)
A fascinating journey into the decisions that lead to use of the bomb against Japan. (Yet I'm disappointed that this site presents only a small part of the solid historical evidence showing that the use of atomic force on civilian targets was unnecessary.)

Social Issues

Is overpopulation really the problem? (My page.)
A.k.a. An excellent resource for pro-life people. Among other items of interest, one can find data on the relationship between breast cancer and abortion. Decent pro-lifers work to protect the most vulnerable humans in our midst. Abortion stops a beating heart and cancels active brainwaves, or, in other words:
"An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health."
--Planned Parenthood 'Plan Your Children' pamphlet, 1963
The Link Between Abortion and Cancer
By Dr. Joel Brind. Information on Breast Cancer
The lucrative abortion industry is working hard to hide the dangerous side effects of abortion from its customers. Read the extensive documention about these side effects.
Did yo know that 16 of 17 statistically significant studies report increased risk of breast cancer among women choosing an abortion? 7 studies report a more than 200% increased risk.
Dr. Frank Joseph on Abortion
The link between abortion and breast cancer, and more.
Family Research Council
A valuable non-profit organization with abundant research on vital social issues. See, for example, their article on the benefits of marriage.
The Textbook League
An excellent site by a good organization that reviews textbooks. They expose the bad science, bad history, new age falsehoods, and general silliness that contributes to the dumbing down of American schools.

This has excellent information on just about every country worth invading. Seriously, it's a valuable resource - especially for students. For some types of information, it beats any encyclopedia. For one thing, you can see for yourself if there is a relationship between population density and human well-being (life expectancy, income, etc.). (See my overpopulation page for sample data.)
Family Records in the UK
This British site, provided by the, aims to give you easy access to information and links to the main UK family history sites on the web.

A major cultural attraction in Hawaii (tied to Brigham Young University-Hawaii). Drop by on your next vacation.
"Broadway in the desert!" Set against stunning red bluffs of Navajo sandstone near Ivins, Utah (not far from St. George in the southwest corner of the state), the Tuacahn Center for the Arts offers one of the most spectacular outdoor settings for art and theatre that I have ever seen. Several years ago I saw their musical production "Utah!" and was very impressed (the special effects alone were worth seeing -- a flash flood was actually produced before our eyes on the outdoor stage).

Portals, springboards, and reference sources
