Have you ever been chosen to sit on a jury? I have. Twice. I distinctly remember sorting through evidence as we inched toward a verdict. Linked here for your critical thinking is an outstanding blog written by physicist, Michael Strauss, for those skeptics who are truly honest in desiring to know if the Christian faith … Continue reading Evidence and the Christian Faith
Don't let skeptics confuse you. It's never "Science vs. Faith", rather it's "Science vs. Science." The Christian faith may go beyond science, but it never contradicts it. Note the following quote from former atheist, Alister McGrath; Oxford; Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics “Science is necessarily agnostic with respect to anything outside of the natural realm. It … Continue reading The Agnosticism of Science
"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge." Psalm 19:1-2 The biblical view of creation is not in conflict with science; rather, it is in conflict with any worldview that starts without a creator. Our vast galaxy, … Continue reading The Universe is Telling of God’s Glory
A person can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God. What a person with a biblical worldview can do is provide evidence for God’s existence. And there’s plenty of it. Cosmology, teleology, RNA/DNA, human consciousness, just to name a few, all provide hard scientific evidence for a Creator. Further, the historical reliability of the … Continue reading The Reason for God
The Christian graduate student organization I was a part of at Texas Tech University invited Dr. Michael Strauss to speak in 2015. I was given the privilege of sitting down with him over lunch and visiting with him personally. It was dialogue that strained my intellect, to say the least. I continue to correspond with … Continue reading Why is there Something Instead of Nothing?
The Multiverse Theory is the latest attempt by non-Christian physicists to eliminate God from being the “un-caused cause” (as Thomas Aquinas coined the phrase) i.e. the creator of the universe. Here, in this brief 5 minute video, astrophysicist, Brian Keating – University of California, San Diego – answers the question, “What’s the greater leap of … Continue reading Which Takes Greater Faith? God or Multiverse?
God or the Multiverse? Which one requires more faith? To all students having the multiverse presented to you as truth (or as the best option for the origination of life) I encourage you to watch this brief, 5 minute presentation by Brian Keating, Professor of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He poignantly … Continue reading God or the Multiverse?
Josh McDowell (left) is a former atheist and has been teaching the Biblical faith to teens and adults for decades. His son, Sean, has followed in his father's footsteps and is, himself, a gifted theologian and defender of the Christian faith. Sean presently serves on the faculty of Biola University in southern California. Below are … Continue reading A Legacy of Biblical Defense & Faith
In Conversations with Carl Sagan, Tom Head records Sagan (astronomer, astrophysicist, and ardent agnostic) as saying, "An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence." It is no secret that, despite the reasonable evidence, ultimately, … Continue reading The Faith of Atheism
As I study the biblical worldview of the afterlife (which I'm convicted is true) I'm always curious to see what mainstream culture thinks about it all. So, when I saw this tweeted article - Newsweek giving credence to the possibility of life-beyond-death - my interest was piqued. Most of the article cites what scientists are … Continue reading Newsweek: Where Do You Go When You Die?
