I’m a researcher. It’s not my career in that I’m not paid to do it, but it is my passion. These days we are inundated with mountains of misinformation and agenda driven reporting. Checking sources, wading through sensationalism, identifying bias, and investigating all sides of a story in order to identify truth are a full time job that I enjoy. The goal of my blog is to help people form educated opinions on a myriad of topics including Christian apologetics, science, sociopolitical issues, vaccine safety/informed consent, current events, etc- based on extensive research rather than relying on our woefully deficient mainstream sources.

It is my firm belief that if your views don’t hold up to scrutiny, they aren’t worth having and I refuse to dogmatically hold a belief that I can’t present a case for.  I welcome and enjoy respectful debate, so don’t hesitate to comment!





First and foremost I am a Bible believing Christian. Next, I am a wife and mom of 3. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2002 with a Bachelor’s in Finance and a minor in Economics. Fresh out of college I worked for Merrill Lynch, but after our first son was born I leaped at the opportunity to be a stay at home mom.  Now that my children are all in school, I have the extra time to devote to my favorite pass time, which is research.

My political views can be described as conservative/libertarian.

Vaccination Views:

I believe in the unfettered right of the US citizen to true vaccine informed consent.

I believe that currently, vaccine risk information is censored from the public, while vaccine benefit is overstated.

I believe that mandatory vaccination laws violate the Nuremberg Code- the landmark document in medical and research ethics of 1947.

Doctrinal Views:

I believe in the inerrancy of the Bible in its original autographs.

I believe in the Trinity- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

I believe in the full deity of Jesus Christ who always was and still is, that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary and that He possesses both a divine and human nature both distinct and unmixed. I believe that Jesus died for the sins of all men, that He was buried, and that He rose on the 3rd day.

I am a creation literalist, meaning that I believe the earth and universe were created in 6 literal 24-hour days as described in Genesis.

I believe man was created in the image of God.

I believe that salvation is wholly a work of God’s free grace and that those who have received it will exhibit evidence of it by bearing “good fruit.”

I believe Israel are the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and that God will fulfill His promises to them in a literal way.

I believe the Church is the body and bride of Christ, composed of both Jewish and Gentile believers, that is separate from Israel.

I believe that marriage is defined exclusively as between one man and one woman.

Science Views:

I reject the theory of evolution.

I reject the theory of uniformitarianism.

I reject the theory of anthropogenic climate change.

I believe life begins at conception.

I believe in only two biological genders.






The Holy Bible- Tiffsnotes

This page is devoted to my personal in depth Bible study that my sister has sarcastically lovingly labeled “The Holy Bible- TiffsNotes”- as in the famous Cliffnotes. I’m reading the Bible straight through from Genesis to Revelation and summarizing each chapter in my own words. Every time I come across something that I need clarification on (which happens to be a lot) I stop, research it to death, and write up an explanation based on my various (also well researched) sources. If I can’t come to a definitive conclusion, I document the alternative views complete with the Biblical basis for each. I also try to throw in extras like illustrations maps, charts, tables- anything to help me see things more clearly. Scattered throughout are quotes from theologians I admire such as Charles Spurgeon, Patterson and Austel, Russell Dilday, and David Guzik to name a few. As we’re going along, if anyone has a question that I don’t single out and research, please feel free to contact me via the contact form or comments section and I’ll be happy to look into it.

Response to Mayo Clinic’s “Covid-19 vaccine myths debunked”

Earlier this month the prestigious Mayo Clinic featured an article on their website titled, “COVID-19 vaccine myths debunked” in an effort to “set the record straight on some of the myths” circulating about COVID-19 vaccines.” How well do their “facts” stand up against the “myths”? Well, let’s see. “Myth” 1: “COVID-19 vaccines are not safe …

William Lane Craig Takes the Wind from Old Earth Creationist Hermeneutical Sails

While I have a huge amount of respect for William Lane Craig, there was not much doubt in my mind that I’d be disappointed by his conclusions when he announced his intention to turn his attention to researching the most plausible way to interpret the text of Genesis 1-11. After all, one of his most …

Excerpts from the Transcript of the CDC’s Private Simpsonwood Meeting

First things first: What was the Simpsonwood Meeting and why should you care about reading excerpts from it? July 7, 1999, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Public Health Service issued a joint statement which provides the background for the private CDC meeting that would occur the next year. Keep these statements in mind …
