We also seek to know what is meaningful about our encounters with each other, our world and even ourselves. Religion and religious traditions provide us with frameworks to respond meaningfully to the mysteries before us.
what if we gave everyone's favorite tales a TV twist? How would the stories change if today's TV characters were in them? Don't get us wrong, the classics are great. But we find our versions a little more "Must See."
In a climate of increasing contempt for the intellectual, why bother? We bother because it is one of our most important obligations.
In its Thanksgiving episode "Big Bang" took a big swing with a high concept that didn't entirely work, and here they try to pull double duty with a serial story and an episodic one.
Christians have not always been such enemies of science. Aside from the occasional embarrassment, science often thrived in explicitly Christian settings. This is the heritage that Christians must reclaim and reassert.
Those advocating for the idea assert that some natural phenomena are so complex that they could not have developed naturally -- they must have been designed by a creator in exactly the form we find them.
In the landscape of television sitcoms, it appears that sweetness is winning out over cynicism. Where the jokey format was once overrun with cynical takes about everything from work to the human condition, now audiences are cheering on a more cheerful batch of comedies.
Is there a conflict between science and religion? The religious organizations representing most Americans clearly don't think so. Interestingly, the science organizations representing most American scientists don't think so either.
Cosmologists have used the Big Bang theory to examine how the large-scale structure of the universe emerged from tiny fluctuations in the density of cosmic matter -- but the original model left some perplexing cosmic properties to chance.
I'm convinced that most readers have at least heard that we believe our universe started with a "Big Bang" -- a very hot and dense state. Why do we think that?

True to form, Sheldon started off this week's episode, "The Friendship Contraction" with one of his well-known emergency preparedness drills. This, of...
Thursday's episode of The Big Bang Theory was the 100th episode for the series and I must say, it did not disappoint! First off, a classic Sheldon-and...
When Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik were cast as Bernadette and Amy, I didn't mind at first. It was about time Howard's desperate and borderline creepy attempts at love actually amounted to something. But now that they've been around for a while, I'm kind of sick of them.
The Big Bang is, without doubt, one of the greatest achievements of human civilization. So why then are so many scientists waiting so expectantly for its immanent demise?
Everyone knows that something is screwy with the way we visualize the cosmos. The failure of science to address the deep and basic questions of life plays a large role in why people continue to turn to religion for answers.
