We commonly use a powerful and rational process to draw conclusions from evidence, and we can use this process to make a case for Christianity. Here’s how.
Materialists have long derided Christians for believing in miracles, but they need look no further than their own worldview to find miracle claims. These three miracles of materialism are more miraculous than any biblical story.
What happens when scientists discover evidence that undermines evolutionary theory? It’s disqualified by definition. It’s ruled inadmissible. Atheists have no choice but to accept Darwin’s account. It’s the only option they have.
Harvard researchers were able to cram 700 terabytes of data onto one gram of DNA. Here are two truths we can conclude from this—truths that point to a designer.
Atheists may not need to prove the absence of God, but their view entails a few other things that require a lot of explaining.
Alan's monthly letter for May 2014 Evolution can be overwhelming. It draws upon evidence from multiple disciplines: geology, paleontology, genetics, chemistry, and others. It’s hard to know where to begin. That’s why I suggest using an easy, yet powerful tactic to help handle this issue. Whenever you come across the topic of evolution, ask a simple question: What definition of evolution is being used? Since evolution has at least three different meanings, it’s essential to know which one is being invoked.
Alan's monthly letter for June 2011 Dear Friend, Atheists like to fancy themselves as rational people. They claim they aren’t encumbered by holy books or divine doctrine. They’re free from the shackles of religious belief so they can follow the evidence where it leads. When a new scientific discovery is made, atheists claim they can welcome it without passion or prejudice. The only problem with this self-assessment is that it’s not entirely true.
“It is not necessary to invoke God to…set the Universe going,” concludes Stephen Hawking in his latest book, The Grand Design. Denying God is old hat, but this comes from a world-class theoretical physicist. That’s why Christians are unnerved by his bold claim. A statement from a scientist of his caliber commands attention. But it turns out there is no reason for concern. Everything Hawking has written in his book can be dismissed as irrational. Everything. Let me tell you why.
Alan's monthly letter for August 2010 Dear Friend,
Alan's monthly letter for September 2009 Dear Friend, When I think of summer breaks, I think of the sun, the beach, the waves, and drinking fresh lemonade. I like to relax in a chair and think of absolutely nothing. But this summer I took a slightly different approach: I studied physics, quantum theory, relativity, cosmology, embryology, and genetics – all in ten days. Not necessarily a relaxing summer, but at least I had some lemonade.
