Dude Perfect Jr.?

These kids are likely to inspire your own with all their ballon-popping trick shots.

The myth that sports stadiums create new jobs and tax revenue

The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly been thinking of moving. But why? Because another city is willing to give them more, under the presumption that having the Chiefs will help their city. But is that really so? There’s lots of reasons to think it isn’t.

“…people who go to home games are mostly people from in-town. Those people don’t spend additional money in town when they go to a sporting event. They spend money that they would have spent elsewhere in town. Instead of a nice lunch, people go to a ballgame and get a hotdog. In other words, this is substitutionary spending—not new spending. And what about out-of-town visitors? Well, given the data shows no impact, it must be the case that this spending just isn’t very significant. Perhaps it’s outweighed by die-hard Chiefs fans spending their money in other cities during away games.”

What lowering the voting age would do

There’s a push on in some countries to lower the voting age to 16, or even younger. That’s only natural in a culture that worships youth. But would a younger voting age actually help those it’s supposed to? No, as J. Budziszewski writes:

“It would only mean increasing the political clout of those who have influence through the young. Pop stars. Sports coaches. Schoolteachers. Writers and editors of media aimed at teens. Especially people in such groups who have no children of their own to take up their time and attention.”

Is the human shoulder badly designed?

Some folks will look at a brilliant diamond and search it out for a fault, no matter how imperceptible. So it is with our amazing design, and the way evolutionists assess it – they want to find fault, even if they have to get inventive to do it

Preach Christianity’s weird stuff

“…reimagining Jesus and Christianity to appeal to skeptics and unbelievers is nothing new. The result is always the same: We end up with a Jesus who looks nothing like the Jesus of history but looks an awful lot like the person doing the reinventing.”

Is secular education safe for Christian?

Is there anything “neutral” about public schools? Were a teacher to say anything about God, or about how God meant marriage for one man and one woman, we know that teacher would be fired in an instant. Yet the opposite view can be presented and promoted. As Shafer Parker explains, secular education has always been anti-Christian.
