The Danger of Trying On Atheism

A pastor decides to 'live as an atheist' for one year in the attempt to sort out anguishing questions. Dr. Craig has plenty to say about this methodology!

"I will live as if there is no God. I will not pray, read the Bible for inspiration . . . I will do whatever I can to enter the world of atheism and live, for a year, as an atheist. It's important to make the distinction that I am not an atheist. At least not yet. I am not sure what I am. That's part of what this year is about."

5 Reasons Why Atheism Fails Intellectually - Part 1

Though Atheism seems to be the intellectual fad of the day in many American and European academic circles, is it possible that this worldview is actually logically self-defeating?  Is it reasonable to think that this "Problematic Perspective" of Atheism is intellectually untenable?

Well, as we'll begin to see in this 3 part series investigating Atheism, this infamous worldview is full of contradictions, logical inconsistencies, and blind metaphysical assumptions.

Tune in, take notes, and learn the weaknesses of Atheism....

Where Does the Evidence for Intelligent Design Lead Us?

"Follow the evidence wherever it leads" is what science and genuine seekers of Truth should be all about.  As Sherlock Holmes often stated in his fictional adventures:

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains (no matter how unlikely), must be the truth."

We have seen that this is indeed the case for the scientific theory of Intelligent Design.  After examining the evidences of Astronomy, Physics, Biological Machines, and the Genetic Code of information of DNA....what are the implications of our search?

5 Reasons Why "Naturalism" Fails as a Worldview

Is Naturalism a self-defeating idea to hold onto? Is it possible that Naturalism is insufficient as a perspective on reality in the areas of science, philosophy, and liveability? 

As we discuss in this episode of "Intelligent Faith Radio" the worldview of Naturalism is fraught with intellectual problems and contradictions, and is a completely bankrupt and inconsistent view of reality.  Be sure to take note of the 5 ways in which Naturalism fails, and use it in your conversations and discussions about the Christian worldview.

The Four Miracles of Atheism

Richard Dawkins stated that “Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.” However, even naturalistic worldviews also take some things on faith.

 

 

For the purposes of this discussion, we will define a miracle as an event which occurs outside of the natural order and cannot be repeated or explained by the scientific process. Consider the following four miracles which must be accepted by the atheist in spite of scientific evidence to the contrary:

  1. Getting Something from Nothing. There has never been an observed example where something was created from nothing. No person would attempt to build something without materials, and there is no theory outside Big Bang cosmology which reaches this conclusion without ridicule from the scientific community
  2. Getting Life from Non-Life. Even if naturalistic causes could have created the universe, it would still be necessary for non-living material to become living. This is also an unproven (and impossible) feat which must be accepted when denying the existence of God.
  3. Getting Order from Chaos. Personal observation tells us that all things tend towards disorder, not order. Left to themselves buildings crumble, gardens are taken over by weeds, and living material decays. If unguided natural causes produced the universe (from nothing) and produced life (from non-life) these processes would necessarily go against observed scientific principles in order to produce the complexity, beauty, and order that we observe in the world around us.
  4. Getting the Immaterial from Physical Matter. If nothing was able to produce everything, non-life was able to produce life, and chaos was able to produce order the atheistic worldview would still encounter an insurmountable obstacle. No matter how organized, it is impossible for physical material to produce the immaterial realities of human consciousness. Our morality, beliefs, desires and preferences all exist outside of mere physical matter.

Each of these examples go against the natural order and could be labeled as miracles. Naturalistic worldviews such as atheism, evolution, and neo-Darwinism regard this evidence for God with what Dawkins would certainly consider an unscientific approach: each item must be taken on faith.
