The Mosque of Muhammad’s Night Journey

Whenever Mohammed was confronted by throngs of unbelievers who doubt his prophetic claims, he would say that he was just sent to warn the people and not to perform miracles. There were even times that he would ask the provocateurs to wait and yet nothing ever happens. One can’t blame the Jews and Christians especially in Yathrib (Medina) because they knew the fact that real prophets can really perform miracles as recorded in their writings and oral traditions.

Geometry and its Earthy Lessons

In recent years, the rise of the information age and the internet has brought forth renewed attention to a scientific hypothesis rooted in strict biblical fundamentalism from the early 19th century. The notion of a flat earth, fueled by the widespread use of social media, has gained immense popularity on platforms like Youtube, attracting hundreds of millions of views and giving rise to a fervent fascination with conspiracy theories. Although the concept of a flat earth may seem unfamiliar and peculiar to many, it originated in the 1830s as the brainchild of a quack doctor named Parallax.

The Great Inferior Primate

Juan Luna's magnificent masterpiece "Hymen, oh Hyménée!" has resurfaced to the public and is now being exhibited at the Ayala Museum after 132 years. Luna thrived during a golden period of artistic success from 1884 to 1889, a mere 25 years after the publication of Charles Darwin's groundbreaking scientific treatise "The Origin of Species" which postulated the theory of evolution by natural selection. Later, we will try to see how the concept of multiverse plays within the Mystery of God’s Creation.

Multiverse or God?

The reason why I chose the topic is that after watching the movie Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness by Marvel, I realized that it might be a good idea to discuss where all this madness is coming from. Obviously how it penetrated popular culture, film, comics, video games etc. Another interesting movie in a multiverse setting is Spiderman No Way Home also by Marvel, but for now we will focus on Dr. Strange. Later, we will try to see how the concept of multiverse plays within the Mystery of God’s Creation.

On the Fifth Century of Philippine Christianity

It was about five centuries ago when a sign of contradiction was transplanted in the islands. It was akin to the Byzantine sword brandished by Constantine the Great, whose cruel character as an emperor was transformed into a child Principe Constantino, to escort the representation of Santa Elena. At the same time if one holds the blade (kapit sa patalim), it was the cross of a faith that will triumph in the end.

The Five Ways of St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas’ best-known work is The Summa Theologica (Summary of Theology), a collection of all of the main theological teachings of the Catholic Church, intended to be an instructional guide for theology students. Quinque viæ, translated as Five Ways or Five Proofs, are five logical arguments regarding the existence of God can be found in this book.

No Salvation Outside the Church

The Latin phrase extra Ecclesiam nulla salus means "outside the Church there is no salvation". It is a Catholic Dogma adapted from the writings of San Cypriano of Carthage, bishop of the third century. This doctrine is very vital to human salvation and is based largely on the Gospel of Mark 16: 15-16: "He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned."

The Sanhedrin was the forum for the pharisees, who believed in the resurrection and in angels, and the saducees, who are akin to new theories and philosophies. All beliefs and philosophies concerning God and His creation are allowed to be expressed here.
