The Link: C.S. Lewis' Last Written Word, Darwin Apostasy, Pro Skater Story & More

"C. S. Lewis’ Last Written Word: We Have No Right to Happiness"The Gospel Coalition
"The last written work that C. S. Lewis delivered before his death in 1963 was an opinion piece for the Saturday Evening Post called 'We Have No Right to Happiness.' This brief essay lays out the problem of separating 'happiness' from obedience to the eternal law, and it shows tremendous foresight in how the right to 'sexual happiness' would inevitably alter our view of happiness in general until the very heart of civilization would be threatened. Below, I’ve published Lewis’ article in full."

"'The Lord Bless Thee:' Remembering Pastor Chuck" CalvaryChapel.com
"It was about a week later when my cousin approached me, saying, 'Do you realize we were the last people to hear your dad sing? Steph [his wife] and I talked about it on the way here. What a miracle! Think about it. He sang a blessing over us!' Then it hit me. I had wanted a blessing from my dad, but I chose to sing a blessing over him. Yes, Dad took over the song, just like he took over my wedding plans, but he gave the greater blessing. God’s grace is the greatest blessing we can give to anyone."

"Coyne, Bechly, Miller, Berlinski: Scientists Debate David Gelernter’s Darwin Apostasy"Evolution News
"This year when three scientists preemptively reviewed Michael Behe’s major book Darwin Devolves in the journal Science, Behe sought a chance to reply. The editor turned him down. So here’s some progress to report: Jerry Coyne 'reviewed' Yale polymath David Gelernter’s recent knockout essay confessing the gravest doubts about Darwinian theory. Coyne wrote for the online magazine Quillette. When three Discovery Institute scientists sought an opportunity to reply and defend Gelernter, they were granted the opportunity!"

"The Universe: Where Did It Come from, and Why are We Part of It?"Unbelievable?
"Celebrated mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose talks to renowned Christian philosopher William Lane Craig about God and the Universe. They discuss Penrose's '3 realms' view of reality and his Conformal Cyclical Cosmology. Could the fundamental nature of reality, the Big Bang and the fine tuning of the Universe point towards a creator God?"

"Undeceptions with John Dickson"God Science
"'I think some people can ... deceive themselves into thinking that science will keep them going, but they're usually people who are having a very good life and they're not hitting the big existential problems of existence where science doesn't really help very much.' That's John Lennox, one of Christianity's great 'Undeceivers.' He has debated Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Peter Singer on the question of 'Can science explain everything?' This episode, he sits down for tea with John Dickson in the gardens of Green Templeton College."
