Almost all the information we have about Carthage comes from its arch-enemies.

Tune in and find out! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-fil…
 
Our earlier plans for Carthage changed thanks to an article in The Skeptical Inquirer regarding the purported discovery of Sodom at Tall el-Hammam. Did they really discover a city struck down by God with fire? Or is something else going on here? Tune in and find out! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/message…

The man who codified the Arthurian Legend and brought the Round Table to vivid life was also a common criminal who spent a great deal of his life in and out of prison.

Despite tribulations, famines and wars the tales of King Arthur have survived and remain a potent portrait of the European oversoul. This episode examines the deep foundations upon which Camelot was built and points the way towards our own quest for the Grail.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/message…
 
Once there was a place called Camelot. Once there was a place called America. Both those places belong to the past now. Yet in Camelot's foundation there still can be found the seeds of renewal. In those stones there lies a sword which will save us and a grail which will renew our poisoned land.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-f…
 
The term "Cultural Marxism" is often bandied about as the Right's version of "Fascism" -- a slur that means little save "I don't like it." This episode compares and contrasts three of the largest influences on our current culture war -- Antonio Gramsci, Karl Popper and the Frankfurt School.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/…
 
In 1917 Tsar Nicholas II abdicated: a few months later the Romanovs were dead and Russia's Christians faced a campaign of persecution that would last for over seven decades and claim millions of lives. Today the Church is more powerful within the former Iron Curtain than it has been in centuries. Why did the Communists launch a war against God -- a…
 
After dethroning their King, the French revolutionaries set their sights on God. Hundreds of clergy and thousands of innocent believers perished during a "dechristianization" program intended to create a secular France. That program remains in progress today. What can we learn from how it triumphed in France -- and how France defeated it?--- Send i…
 
It's a crazy story: a man was born of a Virgin and rose from the dead. Yet that crazy story has been told and retold for over 2,000 years. And is the absurdity of Christ greater than the absurdity of our world and our human condition?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/messageDoor Kenaz Filan
 
Across times and cultures we find the idea of an afterlife where the just are rewarded after hard trials. Today we mock those ideas as "pie in the sky." But do those stories passed down through centuries point to a shared delusion -- or to a reality more glorious than we can imagine?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/message…
 
Hellfire. Damnation. Eternal separation from God. These are scary topics which are today generally treated as fairy tales good only for frightening children and credulous rubes. But what if there is a great and terrible Truth behind those unsettling legends?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/message…
 
According to most secular Americans religious morality is anti-sex, anti-pleasure and anti-fun. C.S. Lewis's views were considerably more nuanced. Our modern culture has built its towers on sand and now they are crumbling. Can we rebuild something better on the bedrock Lewis has laid bare for us?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-…
 
There are many Christian denominations; they have serious differences on important points of doctrine and are in some cases openly hostile to each other. But what common ground do they share? In his 1952 book *Mere Christianity* C.S. Lewis sought to discover a "mere Christianity" which was the true heart of the Faith. Can his wisdom inspire us to p…
 
Every day the edifice of the American Empire crumbles a little more. Soon the Tower will fall. Can a document written by Pope John XXIII in 1963 help us build something better out of the wreckage?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/messageDoor Kenaz Filan
 
In a world where “rebel” and “heretic” are terms of endearment, what use can there be in stale old dogmas and outworn creeds? G.K. Chesterson’s *Orthodoxy* offered a defense of Christianity’s continuing relevance amidst the science, progress and prosperity of Victorian England. Can the timeless truths he offered then help us find a way to clean up …
 
Welcome to the seventh episode of Notes From The End of Time: The Quotients of IntelligenceToday children around the world are ranked and measured by standardized intelligence tests: their data is weighed, sifted and measured by innumerable algorithms and parceled out into neat charts and reports. Yet over and over the computers keep repeating blas…
 
As our government teeters and our populace becomes increasingly polarized, many fear war is on the horizon. Some of us have realized it is already here. How can we wage a just war? How can we work for a just peace? And how can we fight monsters without becoming monsters ourselves?Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae (Prima Secundae Partis)https://www.n…
 
H.P. Lovecraft''s writings have become famous for their "cosmic horror." He showed us our place in the Universe: dust-specks living atop a bigger dust-speck for what barely counts as an Elder God's eye-blink. But were the vast empty demon-haunted vistas he created fiction -- or was he drawing from life?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm…
 
In September 1931 C.S. Lewis accepted Christ after a lengthy conversation with his friend and fellow Oxford don J.R.R. Tolkien. Both would go on to become two of the greatest Fantasy writers of the 20th century. Today their work is seen by many as quaint, outmoded, even reactionary. But can their halting voyage toward Truth help us set our course i…
 
Today many scientists are wondering if we are living inside a computer simulation: Elon Musk famously claimed that the odds we are living in "base reality" are a billion to one. But what does it mean to live in a simulation -- and where do we find that base reality?References:Nick Bostrom, "Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?"https://www.simul…
 
In 1240 King Louis IX (better known as St. Louis) ordered every Talmud in France burned. This episode explores why he made that decision, and what we can learn from that tragedy.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kenaz-filan/messageDoor Kenaz Filan
 
Pontius Pilate asked “What is Truth?” Today we are told that Truth is contextual, Truth is shifting, Truth is a tool used by the strong to hold power over the weak. Like Pilate, we have turned away from inconvenient Truths. And today our nation, and the Truths we once held to be self-evident, are burning. Our only hope is to return to the Truth whi…
