"Hi, I'm Ken Koskinen. Welcome to the world of Ants Publications. I hope you enjoy your visit!"

To celebrate the launching of my website I've posted my ebook "What I Told My Son About the Bible: Things the Clergy Doesn't Want You to Know." It's about 185 pages of entertaining and informative discussions between a scholarly  Father "Dad" and his intellectually gifted son, an early teen named "Charlie." When Charlie asks Dad about the Bible the fun begins.

Dad informs him of the opposite point-of-view of the modern clergy. You will encounter scriptural contradictions, failed prophecies, historic and archaeological evidence that doesn't support the Bible. You will also learn how the clergy tries to make their religions more believable by taking verses out-of-context, ignoring modern science & reforming the data to conform to their ideas about the Bible.

In the process readers will also learn about how the Bible came into being. The ebook is written from Dad's perceptive and he is a tenured professor, teaching Biblical studies from a rational and scientific perspective at "Forevermore College!" Downloaders be forewarned ... this  is a mind blower!

starGreetings friends, I have made a change in the Comments Page. Now you can email me directly via kenkoskinen@outlook.com.

I posted a new essay on June 18, 2017 on the Downloads page. It is entitled "Other Failed Biblical Prophecies".  There are also the three new articles I posted on June 16, 2017. You can read about them below. Stay tuned to this column for alerts about what's new and up and coming!

have posted two new essays on the Downloads page. The first one is a 54 page paper, "The Search for the Big TOE: What is the Theory of Everything?" It is about the search for the missing capstone theory of physics. It is the most exciting search in the history of science. It's a must read for those who like science!

The second essay is a 4 page shorty. "The Legend of Ubuntu". It's a fun fictional story about a very special monkey, named Ubuntu. This one is for the young at heart and great to read to young people. Check it out!

I also posted a new poem, "Pens in a Cup" in the Reading Room. You can read it on your screen. It's a fun, silly poem about pens that are simply sitting in a cup. You'll have to read it to appreciate it. Give it peak!

My most challenging essay is available as a Download. It is "What Resurrection?" and it is a critical look at the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Faith

There is also a new downloadable PDF file. It is "Comments on a Debate: Does God Exist?" In 2009 Dr. William Lane Craig debated noted atheist and writer Christopher Hitchens. The sparks were flying during the debate and I followed up with my commentary. Readers beware this one is a mind blower! Click on any Downloads button.

 Ants stands for (A)nswers (N)onsense (T)ruthfully and the "s" pluralize(s) and stands for repeatedly. Ken Koskinen is the founder of Ants  Publications and this website is a vehicle to post his writings. Ken writes academic essays, books, poetry and some short comedy pieces.  His writing is not well suited for certain individuals. He does not for example accept the teachings of any major world religion.There are  many myths and teachings that are nonsense and he writes factual rebuttals. He exercises the freedom of the press but it isn't  his intention to offend others. Please do not read his material if you are a faith reader.

 Ken primarily writes from a scientific mode of mind. This means his information processing leads with reason and observation but intuition  and emotion assist. When he writes serious essays and books he uses the persona, "Ken Koskinen." When he writes poetry he's "The  Naked Psalmist." When he writes comedy he takes on one of several personae such as "Ken the Wildman" or "SureFoot Helms."

 All downloads are free of charge. The plan is to make all such writings available to anyone who wants them. Even if some people  are short of cash they can still learn from and/or enjoy them. Hopefully those who can, will make donations. Keep in mind Ants  Publications isn't a registered charity and therefore cannot send receipts for tax deduction purposes.
About the Author
  I was born in Helsinki, Finland but immigrated with my family to Toronto, Canada when I was about 2 -1/3 years old. My Finnish given      name is "Jarmo Olavi Koskinen" but I use the English nickname "Ken" Koskinen. I'm a naturalized Canadian and have lived most of my life  in Ontario, Canada but now live in Illinois, USA. I studied at Centennial & Niagara Colleges in Ontario but earned my BSc. at Ambassador  College in Pasadena, California. I majored in psychology but also studied history and biblical subjects. 

 I love to write. As a writer my goals are to: inform/educate, stimulate/challenge and inspire/entertain readers. I write serious pieces as well  as some comedy. Over the last several years I have taken a great interest in science with an emphasis on physics & cosmology. I am  currently writing my first science book, "The Big Vibe: Steps Towards a Theory of Everything." In this work I hope to add to the quilt of  theoretical science. I do not currently plan to make it available on this site since I hope to publish with a scientific book publisher. However  you can learn more about current unsolved scientific mysteries by reading my posted essays.

 I enjoy working out with the 1/2" thick steel cable skipping rope I invented, "The Skip Walker/Jogger." I use it to skip walk; that is, I skip  rope while walking for several miles. You will be able to view a video of me skip walking after I shoot it and add videos to this site. I've also  written the lyrics to a country/lite rock song "The Unemployment Line" which you can now read via Reading Menus. I'm not a musician  or a good singer but also plan on creating a video of me singing the song, without accompaniment. I hope somebody with some real talent,  like Billy Ray Cyrus, contacts me and puts music to it and turns it into the next big hit! I've also invented a very good carpet cleaning  detergent, a general cleaner that is also very good on cleaning and polishing windows and mirrors and a skin cream that helps to clear up  blemishes and outbreaks. The cream is also a good topical dressing on burns. Most recently I also invented a deep cleaning hand, face &  body soap and a tooth cleansing, brightening and whitening foam. All of the above products are in the research and development stage.

 I also love nature, comedy, good food and beer. The Myers Brigg Personality Index (based on Jungian psychology) pegs me as an  intuitive thinking type. The shoe seems to fit since I love intellectual activities and learning. I also enjoy the mystical awareness and feeling  of being alive while exploring & experiencing life within "All That Is!" It is the everything in which we have our being! I hope you enjoy  your visit.
