About Modus Pownens

Just a blog attempting to promote and engage in meaningful, rational dialogue with the believer and atheist alike.  The blog is devoted to Christian apologetics, especially from a philosophical stance.  The mission of this blog is detailed more fully in its first post: https://moduspownens.wordpress.com/category/administrative/

Influences:

Jesus, Aristotle, Plato, St. Anselm, William of Occam, St. Thomas Aquinas, Rene Descartes, Gottfried Leibniz, David Hume, Immanuel Kant, Luis Molina, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Bertrand Russell, Robert Nozick, Alvin Plantinga, William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Richard Swinburne, TJ Mawson…

*More will be added as I’m still learning and being influenced by the premier thinkers in history.

Some profound stuff that has been said and that I like:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” ~ 1 Peter 3:15

“There is no wealth like knowledge, no poverty like ignorance.” ~ Ibn Shu’ba al-Harrani

“…I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason and intellect has intended to forgo their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them.” ~ Galileo Galilei

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” ~ Most likely Evelyn Beatrice Hall

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“Judging others makes us blind, whereas love is illuminating. By judging others we blind ourselves to our own evil and to the grace which others are just as entitled to as we are.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” ~ Robert Frost

“We’re not questioning God, just those He chose to carry on His Cross.  We’re no better.  You’ll see.  Just all of us, the lost causes.” ~ Stephen Christian

  1. Hello Modus

    A quick post to thank you for speaking up in defense of my argument on Katy Faust’s blog. I appreciate good argument, and it is so heartening to see that there are still reasonable people like you (and Katy, of course) who are ready to stand up for what is sensible and right. Please remain and do as you are – in my view the world really needs people like you to model an alternative to the crude, but pernicious and destructive politics of evil.

    Also, I am glad I discovered your blog, I shall have a bit of a read 🙂

    Once again: Thanks!
    Dania
