Over the last few years a storm has been brewing. This storm that rumbles throughout public forums of debate, social media, gymnasiums, church parking lots, school lunchrooms, and barber shops across the globe comes in the form of a question. One question has captivated the hearts and minds of the people—Who is the Greatest of … Continue reading Lebronogetics: Who is the GOAT?
Neil deGrasse Tyson is a world renowned astrophysicist and, in my opinion, the leading science popularizer in the world today. I greatly respect Tyson as a scientist, but he is not a good philosopher and a much worse theologian! In fact, Tyson’s philosophy is that philosophy is “useless” and that it “can really mess you up.” Be … Continue reading Neil deGrasse Tyson: Stick to Your Day Job
The Internet is not subtle. When people attack others’ beliefs and ideas, they don’t just refute them; they utterly obliterate them!!!!! Because who wants a boring headline? “Christian debates atheist.” Lame! “Christian completely owns atheist!!!” “Apologist embarrassed by scientist!!!” That’s exciting! I’ve challenged my colleague, The FreeThinking Theist himself, Tim Stratton, to respond to 12 arguments spread over three rounds that completely destroy … Continue reading Destroying the Kalam Cosmological Argument!!!!! – Round 1
I met Tim Stratton almost fifteen years ago, but have recently become friends with him when I developed an interest in philosophy. I attended the first semester of Reasonable Faith UNK and I have always been interested in science, mostly social science academically and philosophy recreationally. I believe my initial draw to Christian Apologetics came from … Continue reading A Skeptic’s Journey
Atheists love to label themselves as “freethinkers” because they claim to have no restraints to follow facts wherever they might lead. These so-called freethinkers state that a modern-day atheist is “someone who has heard the claims of various religions, has read the books on which those claims are based, and has found the claims to … Continue reading The Freethinking Argument in a Nutshell
It never ceases to amaze me how many internet atheists go to extreme, ignorant, and incoherent lengths to hold on to their faith in atheism. This is astonishing given all the evidence pointing out their worldview is probably false. Contrary to what you may read from atheists on social media today, we are living in … Continue reading Aron Ra & 10 Bad Arguments for Atheism
I love to spend my time thinking about time. That might sound rather odd to most people; however, I have come to the conclusion that if we understand time correctly, then the rest of reality starts to fall into place. My interest in time theory began to exist when I began examining the beginning of … Continue reading Time Proves God
Keith Thompson made a video taking Dr. William Lane Craig out of context. Sam Shamoun took the liberty of posting this video to Dr. Craig’s wall in an attempt to discredit him as an evangelical Christian apologist. In response to Thompson’s video (that Shamoun shared on Dr. Craig’s Facebook page), I said the following: “We must be … Continue reading Presuppositions vs. Logical Reasoning (A Debate on the Best Apologetic Method)
Am I responsible for my beliefs or does something else impose them upon me? What do you believe? How do you know those beliefs you hold are any good (let alone true)? Many philosophers, scientists, and theologians today reject the idea that humans can ever make genuine choices. I freely think they are wrong as it sure seems as … Continue reading Can We Choose Our Beliefs?
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)
