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....

The Laws of Logic

What exactly are the laws of logic? Do we use it on a daily basis? Can you use the laws of logic to see if a worldview is valid or not?

In this short video we will cover these and many more questions you may have regarding the laws of logic. Not only do we use them every single day, but is is also a great tool to analyze and ultimately reject a worldview that breaks any of the laws of logic.

A Powerful Apologetic Method: ABDUCTIVE Reasoning!

"What in the world is 'Abductive Reasoing'?" Well, abductive reasoning is employed by crime scene detectives, car mechanics, and your medical doctor.  Abductive reasoning is when you look at all the known facts, and seek to form the best explanation to explain the data.  Abductive reasoning seeks to find the "inference to the best explanation" for the known facts.   

This is a vital way of thinking and investigating that all serious Christians should be engaged in....

God and Infinity

Dear Dr Craig

I am a devout Christian and I read your Q&A every week. I have read Q#323 today and I was totally surprised by it because it is basically exactly what I have been thinking about for the last couple of days. Infinity is a concept that has been driving me nuts as I cannot completely fathom it. A few comments I want to make:

1. Is it possible that God could have counted the whole set of natural numbers? The answer according to me is no. Why? Because the set of natural numbers is infinite. You will never stop counting. So even though God is almighty, He cannot do things like these. It simply doesn't make sense. It's like saying God can create a rock that He cannot lift. It's a logical incoherent statement.

Is GOD a "Necessary Being", one that MUST exist?!?

Must GOD exist by 'Logical Necessity'?  

While most atheists would immediately cry "Ridculous! Absurd!", or even stronger expressions of disagreement, the question must be thought through philosophically.  

The question is this:

 Are there any arguments/lines of reasoning that are sound, and terminate with the conclusion that GOD must exist, as a logically Necessary Being, one that is the foundation for certain features of reality such as existence, morality, and necessary truths?

Listen, learn, and remember.... have an Intelligent Faith!
