Nothing Should Exist – Gene Edward Veith says “I hadn’t realized that science, despite all of the claims that it has all the answers, remains stuck at a very basic conundrum.” Science is still stuck on the problem that nothing should exist and yet, well, obviously plenty does exist.

    Protecting the Family Name

    It is a conversation I had with my son-in-law while he was pursuing my daughter and expressing his interest in marrying her.
