Atheism, Truth, and Certitude: Jeff Hardin Weighs In

We should strive to be fully integrated coherent human beings and, as Christians, perhaps more than any other people, we should be wanting that. I think that’s something that our faith insists of us.

 

If God created the universe, what created God?

Many arguments claiming to prove the existence of God have been proposed throughout the centuries. A popular argument is that, since all effects come from causes, there must have been a “first cause” that is outside the material world—an “uncaused cause”.

Why should Christians consider evolutionary creation?

Evolution is a challenging subject to consider in light of biblical faith, so it is often easier to ignore or reject it than to engage in meaningful discussion about the topic.

Newton, Leibniz, and the Role of God in Planetary Orbits

In the early 1700s, Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz famously disagreed about whether God periodically "corrected" the orbits of the planets. Why their disagreement matters for today's debates about God and evolution.

 

From the Archives: Speciation and Macroevolution

A common challenge to evolutionary theory is that while life does indeed change over time (what is known as microevolution), no one has ever seen one species evolve into another species (macroevolution).

Originally posted in 2011: Reconciliation is a much more demanding task than integration because it means an ongoing conversation between us and the unpredictability of how that ongoing conversation may affect each of us and our view of things.

From the Archives: What Is Scientism?

Originally posted on June 11, 2012. Scientism is a rather strange word, but for reasons that we shall see, a useful one.

John Calvin on Nicolaus Copernicus and Heliocentrism

John Calvin really believed that the sun revolved around the earth, but we shouldn't dismiss the rest of his theology because of this error.

 

From The Archives: Where are the Transitional Fossils?

From the archives: A common argument leveled against the theory of evolution is that scientists have not been able to produce transitional fossils that show the change of one species into another. In this podcast, we address a common misconception about what transitional fossils actually are.
