137. Book Review | Villains of the Early Church by Mike Aquilina

Wonder how the Church has addressed issues as they arise? If you want to learn more about the early heretics and persecutors the early Christians faced, this is an easy book to read.

“Every revolutionary ends up either by becoming an oppressor or a heretic.”

Albert Camus

What I enjoy, besides learning the history, is to see how ideas are addressed over and over. We have a lot of interesting ideas popping up in our culture that challenge established truths. This book shows how to dissect why something is wrong, explain that, and show why the truth holds. I think we need more of this, and it offers many examples of this process while under duress.

In a world of Cancel Culture and a stomping out of ideas against leftist orthodoxy, it is important to realize the complex relationships heretics had. Often, we’re told they’re a victim, but many times throughout history they use untruths and force to push against those speaking hard-to-handle truths.

142. Don't Attribute To Stupidity That Which Is Proven To Be Malice Conversation of Our Generation

Stupidity doesn't explain everything. And, in our culture, it seems like too many sensible people deny evidence that points to malice in favor of the stupidity explanation. Listen below or subscribe to the podcast here. "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity" -Hanlon's razor I try to look at things in a charitable light and not assign motives. That said, eventually when evidence stacks up high enough, it's time to admit that what may appear accidental wasn't. And, to not allow people to simply ask questions, but insist that they're conspiracy theorists if they do, is wrong. That's why today we're going to take a look at real conspiracies that are known world-wide as well as weird occurrences that you aren't allowed to attribute malice to- or even ask about. A few examples of verified conspiracies: The 9/11 Attacks Lincoln assassination Crucifixion of Jesus Now, there are often events that are attributed to stupidity before even being evaluated: The Mandalay Bay shooting Explosion in Beirut The Epstein and Ghislane connections The new controversy over a Trolls doll Enjoy solving today's problems with the wisdom of the past?
