Is Atheism Dead? And The Prager Project

One of the more fascinating op-eds appearing in the Wall Street Journal (12/25/2014) argued that science offers virtually ironclad proof that God exists. Here is that article, written by Eric Metaxas, and his companion You Tube video making the same points.

The video is part of an ongoing series of educational efforts produced by Dennis Prager. He calls his project Prager University and it features distinguished thinkers presenting their viewpoints on contentious topics. I've listed some of the more interesting of these below.

Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore discusses the pernicious effects of attacks on the genetically modified food industry -
and the silliness of "climate change" hysterics -

Speaking of Coolidge - Long before anyone had ever heard of Arthur Laffer, Coolidge's Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon understood that lower tax rates could actually result in higher revenues. The Coolidge administration put this theory into practice and proved it to be true. Here is an explanation of how The Laffer Curve works -

The truth about Hoover and the Great Depression -

Regarding taxes - how much is a "fair share"? -

Prager has also made a video denouncing the Iran nuclear deal -
It's good considering its brevity, but there are better, more detailed denunciations available, for example -
