Understanding the mannishness of man provides a powerful technique to get someone thinking.
Atheists may not need to prove the absence of God, but their view entails a few other things that require a lot of explaining.
Many evolutionary naturalists attempt to ground morality in naturalistic evolution. This is fraught with serious difficulties that form an insurmountable case against evolution as the foundation of morality.
The goal of this essay is to present a comprehensive picture of the Transhumanist movement. We will examine the history of the assumptions and principles behind Transhumanist thought. Then we will analyze it within the standard framework of ideological thought. We will also discuss why it matters and see its growing influence in popular culture, politics, science, and even in big business. Finally, we will propose a balanced Christian response. Definition
The Scriptures seem to identify a God in time, yet a God that is somehow beyond time, not constrained by it the way we are (1 Peter 3). Put your thinking caps on today.

I have fielded some questions lately about whether a person with a modern worldview (STR types, presumably) can really connect with people in an emerging, postmodern culture. This also may be a concern of yours. I don’t think it’s anything you should lose any sleep over, though. Here’s why.

Is the doctrine of the Trinity an irrational idea? Does it discredit Christianity?
Are Jesus' human and divine natures compatible? Is this an impossibility that makes Christianity irrational?
