Atheism, Truth, and Certitude: Jeff Hardin Weighs In

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”. The response to many of these arguments, however, is: “If God created the world, what created God?
Embracing Faith, Accepting Ambiguity
My journey has been gradual and halting, and I think that that is how it is for many people. It seems to me that it would be too cataclysmic to have all of our ideas shift at once. Our minds and hearts wouldn't be able to handle it.

How Old is the Earth?
A central feature of young earth creationism is the claim that the earth and universe were created no more than 10,000 years ago. At BioLogos, we believe that a serious and faithful reading of Scripture doesn’t call for such a recent origin, and we are persuaded that God has shown us through the natural world he created that his creative work began much earlier than that.
