The problem of suffering, objectively speaking

“Let’s be objective,” is a recommendation a mediator might make to opposing parties, or a father to a child who feels she’s been wronged. Objectivity is the perspective which allows one to evaluate… Continue reading

Possibly, definitely, God exists

I didn’t argue much as a child. At least that’s what my (sometimes selective) memory tells me. Yeah, I’m pretty sure I almost always agreed with my siblings that it was in fact… Continue reading

The greatest miracle

It always strikes me as odd when skeptics or atheists dismiss the virgin conception of Jesus as a ridiculous impossibility. The late former atheist Christopher Hitchens – “former” because now he knows the… Continue reading

Explanation, please

Some things just seem to defy explanation. Like why over 400 whales recently beached themselves in New Zealand. Or why someone would pay almost $100,000 for a Cheeto. And how otherwise tenderhearted women… Continue reading

Oh, those crazy Christians

A year or so ago I was interacting with an atheist blogger, and after reading his list of objections to faith in God I boldly asserted my intention to answer each of them.… Continue reading

God as Master Puppeteer

  “I could never worship a God who pulls all the strings.” Next to “What about the unreached?”, this objection to the Christian worldview is perhaps the most commonly voiced by the skeptic.… Continue reading

What about the unreached? Part 3

This matter of how one is saved is like a priceless gem that must be handled very carefully, and that has made me a little hesitant to make truth claims about it. My… Continue reading

My apologist crush

When I set out almost four years ago to pursue an amateur vocation in apologetics by way of the blogosphere, arguing for the reasonableness of theism and Christianity in particular, I knew the… Continue reading

Does evil need God?

  “questions about values—about meaning, morality, and life’s larger purpose—are really questions about the well-being of conscious creatures.” – Sam Harris, The Moral Landscape         The moral argument for God’s… Continue reading

Kontemplation is King

(Don’t you hate it when people misspell just to be alliterative?) On the matter of God’s existence, theists and atheists would likely agree that if there is a supreme, supernatural creator, he is… Continue reading

Is it wise to deny what we intuitively perceive?

Isn’t it interesting how some truths are just intuitive and any attempt to deny them is easily and summarily rejected? Like the principle of causation…if we find a package on our doorstep we… Continue reading

Prepare to be amazed

Since mankind has existed, looking up was a humbling experience. Beholding the sun, moon, and stars suspended in space, even before we knew how vast the observable universe is, gave evidence that there… Continue reading

Hope for the hater

What is hatred? Is it similar to darkness being the absence of light, and cold the absence of heat? Is hatred just the absence of love? I’m sure I’ve been accused of hatred… Continue reading

Atheism can do better

Is it “intellectually lazy” to believe in God? Is religious faith in essence a “cop-out”, a means to avoid the hard work of investigation? That’s the claim of atheist and theoretical physicist Lawrence… Continue reading
