A Choice Apart From Time

Question Dear Tim, I recently ran across a blog post by an atheist who is a physics major with a philosophy minor. In response to the Kalam Cosmological Argument, he contends that God could not have created the universe. His argument proceeds as follows: 1. The word “choice” must imply a progression from a state of multiple … Continue reading A Choice Apart From Time

The Image of God: The Kalam & Freethinking Arguments

The Freethinking Argument was first crafted at Biola University in Scott Smith’s philosophy classroom. I had been playing around with the idea for some time, but it was Dr. Smith’s teachings that provided the catalyst to complete the argument.[1] The Freethinking Argument (FTA) has received much attention ever since — especially since freethinkingministries.com was launched a little over a year … Continue reading The Image of God: The Kalam & Freethinking Arguments

The Kalam: An Overview & Defense

William Lane Craig is famous for resurrecting and defending the Kalam Cosmological Argument (KCA). The argument appeals to both philosophical and scientific evidence for the beginning of the universe. If the Kalam is sound, it seems to prove the existence of God. The question is raised: Is the argument sound given our modern, scientific understanding … Continue reading The Kalam: An Overview & Defense

The Ontologi-Kalam-alogical Argument

Is it logically possible that God exists? That is to say, is the concept of God logically incoherent or not? God is defined as “something which nothing greater can be conceived.” Or rather, in more idiomatic English: “God is the greatest conceivable being.” With this definition in mind, is there anything logically incoherent about the concept of … Continue reading The Ontologi-Kalam-alogical Argument

Jesus Validates the Bible (not the other way around)

Does God exist? Is Christianity true? Is the Bible reliable? These are three of the most important questions a person could ever ask. Even if a skeptic starts with the assumption that the Bible is not reliable, they would probably agree with the Apostle Paul that if Christ has not been raised, then our faith is … Continue reading Jesus Validates the Bible (not the other way around)

An Army of Straw Men

In December of 2014, after three years of hard work and long hours of study, my colleague, Timothy “Orthodox” Fox, and I finally graduated from Biola University with a couple of Master’s Degrees in Christian Apologetics (both of us graduated with highest honors)! This field of study focuses on logic, science, metaphysics, the historical method, philosophy, … Continue reading An Army of Straw Men

The B-Theory of Time, Rationality, & Knowledge

In my last article I demonstrated that if a committed atheist rejects the logical conclusion of the Kalam Cosmological Argument by appealing to the B-theory of time, then they must also reject Darwinian evolution as an explanation of primate biological complexity.[1] It follows that if one thinks evolution is true, they must reject the B-theory of … Continue reading The B-Theory of Time, Rationality, & Knowledge

The Kalam, Evolution, & The B-Theory of Time

In my last article I discussed and explained one of my favorite arguments for the existence of God known as, the Kalam Cosmological Argument.[1] This argument is based on logic and utilizes science to confirm what we can logically prove. From the deductive conclusions of the Kalam, we can rationally infer the existence of God. … Continue reading The Kalam, Evolution, & The B-Theory of Time

Logic, Science, & God: The Kalam Cosmological Argument

One of my favorite arguments for God’s existence is called the Kalam Cosmological Argument (KCA). It consists of two premises that lead to a logically deductive conclusion. The syllogism goes as follows: 1- Whatever begins to exist has a cause. 2- The universe began to exist. 3- Therefore, the universe had a cause. Premise One … Continue reading Logic, Science, & God: The Kalam Cosmological Argument
