An oldie but a goodie…
The video below was leaked from an elite Arminian think-tank hidden in an underground bunker buried deep beneath Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. It’s rumored that the release of this highly sensitive information may represent the death-blow for Calvinism, and many well known monergists are allegedly already heading for the hills for fear of facing off against this impregnable, irrefutable, and potent form of argumentation which has been secretly under development by the finest Arminian minds of the past several decades.
WARNING – if you are a committed Calvinist then watching this video may have unintended and unpredictable effects on your psychological, physiological, and theological wellbeing. Watch at your own risk!

No child, though, should have to go without an answer which is why I’ve decided to take the elements of materialism and shape them into an accurate, though mythic, narrative. This is what our culture has been missing for far too long — a creation story for young materialists.
