I have brought these posts together from the four corners of the earth in order to provide you, dear reader, with excellent resources on a number of issues. This week, we examine the show “Breaking Bad” and the series of books “The Maze Runner Triology”; we dive into the argument from undesigned coincidences, look at one possible solution to the problem of the Cambrian Explosion, examine some arguments against Christianity, and watch a video examining authority in marriage.
