I want to thank of my regular readers and subscribers for the years you’ve followed me here, and I warmly invite you to continue the journey over at the new web site.

I’ll be making lots of new content, and in addition to regular articles, we’re switching our focus to short, educational videos hosted on our youtube channel. We’ll be making big theological issues easy and fun by stealing from the great minds of the past, including but not limited to C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, the Marx Brothers, Abbot and Costello, Monty Python’s Flying Circus and the Muppet Show.

I’m also going to be taking the show on the road as a traveling speaker/teacher, so if you want to invite me to your to your church, school, small group, pizza party, or chili cook off, just send an email to:

A list of the presentations I am prepared to deliver is on the new website. Check it out.

What’s with the name?
The phrase “A Bit of Orange” originates in the writings of C.S. Lewis (See below). In this opening section of Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis is arguing for the universal knowledge that objective morality is real, thereby make a case for the fact that we all know God is real. To prove that we all know this, he doesn’t dig through history into the philosophers of the past, nor scale the ivory towers of academia to quote the scholars of his own day. He shows us some ordinary people talking about something as ordinary as a bit of orange, and from there be builds his case.

This is the philosophy of A Bit of Orange: The average person doesn’t need a PhD in biochemistry, genetics, or Quantum Mechanics in order to understand why they can trust the Bible. If you can understand a rubber duck, or a toaster, or a bit of orange, you can be very confident that the Word of God is true, the Gospel is certain, and Jesus is Lord. We thank God for the men and women who do search the deep history of the church or scale the towers of academia in order to defend the Bible, but we find that most people, at least at the very start, just need a bit of orange.

The following is from Mere Christianity, By C.S. Lewis

The Law of Human Nature

EVERY ONE HAS HEARD people quarreling. Sometimes it sounds funny and sometimes it sounds merely unpleasant; but however it sounds, I believe we can learn something very important from listening to the kinds of things they say. They say things like this: “How’d you like it if anyone did the same to you?”–‘That’s my seat, I was there first”–“Leave him alone, he isn’t doing you any harm”–“Why should you shove in first?”–“Give me a bit of your orange, I gave you a bit of mine”–“Come on, you promised.” People say things like that every day, educated people as well as uneducated, and children as well as grown-ups.

Now what interests me about all these remarks is that the man who makes them is not merely saying that the other man’s behavior does not happen to please him. He is appealing to some kind of standard of behavior which he expects the other man to know about…

Theists, Agnostics, and Atheists, OH MY!

Your Rent-A-Friend starts a long walk through the Metaphysical Map starting with God. When it comes to God, there are only three positions anyone can take: They know He’s there, they don’t know, they pretend He isn’t. Every religion on earth, from Atheism to Zen fits in here somewhere. But your view of the world will remain cloudy, and your metaphysical map will lead you astray unless you begin with the true God, Jesus Christ.

Come Learn stuff, and get Smarter! And thanks for letting me be your Rent-A-Friend.

In the near future, I will be explaining each stop on the map one at a time, ultimately to show you why the Christian worldview is so rational and different from any other worldview.If you can understand a runner duck, you can understand all of this. So CHECK IT OUT!

Defining Evolution Ch 6 Summary: Creating New Genes

Recently I defined Evolution as

An unguided, Natural process which increases the genetic information in an organism; Creating new Genes which did not previously exist.

These new genes then cause an increase in physical complexity and associated behavior, Both of which increase the organism’s ability to survive and pass on these traits to offspring.

Now we must ask, “Why does there need to be NEW genetic information in every step?” The simple answer is, because you can’t add without adding. In this video your Rent-A-Friend will make clear why Darwinian Evolution has to add new genes at every new limb of the Tree of Life. Enjoy!
