Review: Spyro's Pancake House

I ate at Spyro's Pancake House on Friday, November 24th 2017. I was visiting Fort Wayne to meet my  girlfriend's grandparents, and we agreed to go to Spyro's. I have never been before, nor have I ever heard of this restaurant. Despite the restaurant being unknown to me, it did not disappoint.

When we arrived, there was a short wait. The restaurant was packed, and there were several families waiting to be seated. I fully expected a half-hour wait or longer. Despite this, it was not long before our party of 6 was seated at a clean table. When we were seated, I was expecting the service to be somewhat slow due to the crowd. I was pleasantly surprised when we received our drinks almost immediately, and our order was taken almost as soon as we sat down. The crowd also did not appear to slow the pace at which they made our food. We not only received prompt service, but also had fresh food in front of us far sooner than I expected.

I ordered a barbecue burger. I received it quickly, and was surprised at how large the burger was. It was difficult for me to finish the burger, and I am a heavy eater. The burger was very good overall. I was very pleased with how my burger turned out. The burger also came with a large order of fries. While the burger wowed me, the fries were okay. They were not bad, but they could have been better. Overall, the meal was great. The atmosphere was great. The service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who has the opportunity to eat here.

5 Things That Are Best Explained By Theism

When discussing my faith with non-believers, I find that the average person is oblivious to the explanatory scope of theism. That is, God's existence explains several things that would be difficult to explain in any other way. In this post, I am not presenting any formal arguments, but am just pointing out what these things are. Arguments will be addressed in subsequent posts.

1. The Origin of the Universe

Neither atheism, nor alternative views of God can adequately explain the origin of the universe. Modern science has lead us to the conclusion that the space-time universe that we inhabit had a definite beginning some 14 billion years ago (give or take a little). The problem for the atheist comes when we realize that any contingent thing has an explanation for its existence that is not found within itself, and that if something had a beginning or could have failed to exist (which describes the universe), it is by its very nature contingent. Neither do other views of God adequatel…

7 Problems With "Lack-Theism" Atheism

In recent years, atheists have increasingly attempted to redefine the words "atheism" and "atheist". Now, rather than being the negative position on the question of God's existence, many atheists have redefined atheism to be a mere "lack of belief" in God. They do not seem to care that there was already a term for this position ("non-theism"). This is often done in an attempt to avoid the burden of proof that comes from taking the negative position on God's existence. Yet, in attempting to eliminate this burden of proof, the one who redefines atheism in this manner has jumped from the frying pan into the fire. Here are 7 reasons why this definition of atheism is problematic for those who use this definition:

1. It Is Rooted In The Etymological Fallacy

In order to justify this redefinition, many atheists will appeal to the etymology of the word "atheist." The term "atheist" comes from two Greek roots, "a-" me…

Profile Of A Modern Pharisee

The Pharisees were one of the major Jewish sects in the days of Christ. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus consistently clashed wit h this religious group on multiple issues. Even though the Pharisees do not exist in the way they did in the 1st century, many religious leaders and laypeople today still fit the profile of a Pharisee. Here are some traits of the Pharisees, both ancient and modern:

1. The Pharisees cared more about their traditions than they did about obedience to God.
The Pharisees believed in the Law of Moses, and observed it strictly. They were so careful to observe the Law of Moses, in fact, that they observed additional guidelines that were meant to help them avoid violating the Law. The Pharisees ultimately observed these guidelines to the neglect of the finer parts of the Law, such as justice, mercy, and love. Jesus clashed with them and called them out on this point (see Matthew 23:23-24). Today, we call this practice "legalism". Legalism is a hallma…
