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.

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....

Atheism's Achilles Heel: "Scientism"

Do most Atheists hold to a self-defeating view of Science?

Here we will examine the logically self-defeating claims of "Scientism", and how many of today's atheistic researchers subscribe to this erroneous view of science.  We will also go over more that  a dozen highly qualified modern scientists who hold very strongly to belief in a Creator God.

It is vital to have a good handle on this faulty concept of learning truth about reality.  Especially since it is endorsed today by many at the University.  Learn how to refute "Scientism".

Have an Intelligent Faith!

"Is Science The Ultimate Truth?" - Part 7

Can we learn truth about reality apart from empirical knowledge?

(pt.7)

In this seventh and final installment, we will examine Reason #5: That although the scientific disciplines are a good avenue to obtain certain truths about reality and the universe we, inhabit, they are by no means the only pathways to reliable knowledge about our world.  

There are many other forms of truth that are important and necessary for a fuller understanding of our human experience.

The goal of this series is to delineate at least 5 Reasons why science has NOT eliminated the classical and historical Christian concept of God:

1. Scientific Founding Fathers - These individuals were primarily Christian Theists. 

2. "Scientism" - This is a logically self-defeating and self-contradictory concept.

3. Simple Irrelevance - Approximately 95% of scientific knowledge has no bearing on the ideas and truth claims of the Christian Worldview.

4. Strong Support - Approximately 5% of scientific knowledge that does intersect with the Christian Worldview is strongly supportive of Christian Theism. 

5. Single Perspective - Scientific knowledge is only one of many reliable methods we can use to obtain solid understanding and knowledge about reality.

I hope that you will stay with us as we continue to investigate this important question in light of the scientific, historical, and logical evidence - "Has Science Eliminated The Need For God?".

"Atheistic Scientism is a SELF-DEFEATING Idea" - Part 5

Is it possible that many Atheists hold to a self-contradictory view of Science, called "Scientism"?

(pt.5) 

In this fifth installment, we will examine Reason #2: the logically self-defeating claims of "Scientism", and how many of today's atheistic researchers subscribe to this erroneous view of science.  We will also go over more that  a dozen highly qualified modern scientists who hold very strongly to belief in a Creator God.

Einstein Believed in GOD?!? - Part 4

The "Father of Modern Physics" was a believer in the Creator. 

"In the view of such harmony in the Cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, 
am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God.  
But what makes me angry is that they quote me in support of such views." 

- Albert Einstein

What can we learn as we look at the lives and scientific contributions of men such as Isaac NewtonMichael Faraday, Leonardo Da VinciFrancis Bacon, or Louis Pasteur?

  One of many things that we see is that the majority of the "Founding Fathers" of modern science were dedicated Christian Theists.  These men saw scientific investigation, in a great variety of fields, as a fascinating way to uncover the design and handiwork of their Creator.

In this fourth installment, we will finish our survey of some of the greatest scientific minds of the modern era, and their firm belief in a Creator.  The goal of this series is to delineate at least
