Can Morality Be Based in Our “Selfish” Evolutionary Past?

There is No Truth

Some like to say that there is no absolute truth. It’s a fun mental exercise, but nobody – absolutely nobody – lives that way. We all act as though what we believe is true. You do, and so do I… all day, every day. Try a little experiment: when someone tells you that there is no absolute truth, ask them, “Is that absolutely true?”

A Tale of Two Worldviews

How Evangelism is Kind of Like Fishing

Death of Moses in Deut. 34 and Authorship

Moses is believed to have written the Pentateuch... that is, the first five books of the Old Testament. Would that include the account of his death and burial found in Deuteronomy 34? Some suggest that Moses prophesied his own death.

The Demise of the Artifact Hypothesis

A primary critique of Darwinian evolution is that there are large gaps in the fossil record. We don't see the transitional forms - animals in the middle of changing from one kind to another - that evolutionists claim to have existed.

Donall and Conall Learn that Jesus isn’t Divine

Jehovah's Witnesses teach that Jesus was God's first creation, and not God Himself. This is rightly considered heresy, of course... but can you explain why they're wrong about the interpretation of John 1:1, where - they claim - Jesus is "a" god and not "the" God? Video, 5:30

A Simple Explanation of Divine Simplicity

God is "simple." That is, He is not a combination of things that already existed, like a cabinet is made of wood. Instead, He existed before anything else existed. Because of this, anything true of God comes not from His parts, because He has no parts. All things true about God are completely true of Him, in totality.

The State of Theology 2020

Physics and Free Will

Do humans actually have free will, or is that an illusion created in our brains? It seems silly that anyone would argue that we don't have free will, since the claim implies that they MUST argue that way, rather than that they choose to. What are the implications, and what does the science say?
