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....

Critical Questions

Dear Dr. Craig,

I am an atheist from, and living in, the United Kingdom, a place where Christianity is in pretty sharp decline at the moment. I have viewed some of your debates online with some curiosity. I would like to ask you some critical questions.

1) Don't you agree that the whole time-limit debate format is an extremely poor way of determining the truth? There are numerous flaws. For instance, the fact that a debate can be "won" by tactics and rhetoric alone does not make this seem like a very constructive use of time. Also, the fact that timing is such an important factor means that certain points raised aren't answered by one's opponent, not because they cannot answer them, but because they don't have time to, which gives the audience a misleading impression. Also, heck, anyone who thinks a question like the "existence of God" can be answered in just 2 hours seems pretty dashed overconfident to me!

Truth - Does it Exist?

Does Truth exist?  Even if it does, can we know it?  Are we in the dark like Kant said that we are?  Should we be absolutely skeptical as Hume told us we should be?

Here we will begin to discuss the all important question of truth, and whether it can be known at all.  We will be examining the claims of Relativism, Agnosticism, Skepticism, and Postmodernism, and see what they claim to be the truth about truth.

TRUTH: Does It Correspond To Reality? - Pt.4

"Reason To Believe" - Video Apologetics Class

Lesson #4

(pt.4 of 4)

 Does Truth exist?  Even if it does, can we know it?  Are we in the dark epistemologically like Immanuel Kant said that we are?  Should we be intellectual skeptics as David Hume told us we should be?

To address these and many other questions, here is Lesson #3 of our "Reason To Believe"  Video Apologetics Class.  

Here we will begin to discuss the all important question of truth, and whether it can be known at all.  We will be examining the claims of Relativism, Agnosticism, Skepticism, and Postmodernism, and see what they claim to be the truth about truth.

I encourage you to tune in for all four parts of this lesson, and see if the Theory of Truth that you believe is logically consistent and coherent, or if perhaps it should be exchanged in favor of another approach.
