Animal Instincts Could Be Inherited Expert Knowledge

November 25, 2020 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In addition to studying complex human reasoning, I have been observing complex instinctive reasoning in animals for many years.

Instinctive behavior is often very […]

Free Science Is Here And Growing Fast

November 11, 2020 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Most CFACT readers are interested in science. Many of the CFACT articles are scientific and these are often followed by lengthy technical discussions in the comments. Some of my scientific articles have had thousands of comments; one article was over 5,000 when comments were closed. And there are many other […]

Getting America Back To Work Must Come Sooner, Not Later

April 6, 2020 by


By Larry Bell ~ Everyone has an opinion about how best to deal with the COVID-19 coronavirus disaster and how effectively President Trump and his administration are addressing numerous aspects of this crisis. For whatever it’s worth, I have some thoughts about this too. From where my 82-year-old-high-risk-category body sits, I believe that the President, […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”–Mark Twain. I am happy to listen to the young, […]

Americans Have Almost Entirely Forgotten Their History

October 5, 2018 by


By Jarrett Stepman ~ In America, we celebrate democracy and are justifiably proud that this nation was founded on the idea that the people should rule. That’s why it is so important that Americans be informed about their government. They are partakers in it. In fact, they control it. Under tyrannical systems, it matters little […]

With “Thanks, Christian White Men!” Andrew Klavan once again hits the nail on the head.

The Right Side Of History

March 27, 2014 by


By David M. Huntwork ~ Time and time again I have been accused of being on the “wrong side of history” when it comes to the arguments over abortion and, especially, to so-called gay marriage.

THE FOUNDATION “[I]f the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted. … If a republican government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.” –Noah Webster TOP […]

Finding Balance

April 3, 2013 by


By Tom McLaughlin ~ There are ways of knowing beyond the logical and empirical. We can know things in our hearts with certainty.

How-to Books

November 10, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky It’s my belief that in the entire history of the world nobody has ever learned to play a game by reading the enclosed instructions. I have, on occasion, tried reading up on games that I had already mastered — and even then those confounded instructions made absolutely no sense to me. How, […]

A Capital Idea!

September 19, 2010 by


By Burt Prelutsky I would venture that the question over which Americans are most passionately divided isn’t abortions or even whether or not Julia Roberts has any sex appeal, but the issue of capital punishment. Frankly, I don’t understand the position of those who are opposed to ending a life for taking a life. I […]

That’s not to say that writers and directors in their 20s and 30s can’t be talented, but, […]
