Discourse Media is doing good work.
Some Christians are young earth creationists. They believe the earth is less than 10,000 years old. It’s not a small number of people. But how many? And how many in Canada? And how does this community continue to believe these things? What do their children think? How does belief correlate to age? Young earth creationism,…

This has led to a distinct rise…
American writer Ta-Nehisi Coates has compellingly described racism as “not merely a simplistic hatred. It is, more often, broad sympathy toward some and broader skepticism toward others.” We can extend this observation to patriarchy and classism. The Power of Being Preppy Original quote in The Atlantic, “Fear of a Black President”: Racism is not merely…
