What I like most about doing this podcast is the opportunity or excuse to look into a new topics. I’ve received several comments saying that they appreciate the fact that I try to provide a balanced look at both sides of a topic. This doesn’t come easy and I have to actively look for counter arguments and put myself in their shoes.. I had a recent conversation on a friends Facebook page about science, the age of the earth and Dinosaur bones. I’m no paleontologist and neither is my friend nor was the person I was arguing with but with a little research and some digging, I was able to familiarize myself with the topic and this is what I’m going to discuss in this episode of C-Webb’s Sunday School!
Evolution, it’s a hot button topic even when it shouldn’t be. Creationist fear it because it undermines their faith and belief in their Bible and thus their god. Secularist barely understand it and take it for granted as scientific fact. Evolution is a fascinating and complicated topic and from what I have read and study, I can empathize with creationist but that doesn’t mean I agree with their conclusions. In this episode, I am going to share some of my thoughts on evolution and a conversation I had with a creationist friend over twitter about evolution. I hope for this to be an enlightening topic of discussion. This is C-Webb’s Sunday School!
In this episode, I will continue examining William Lane Craig’s arguments for the empty tomb. In episode 41, I showed you how Craig’s first two arguments fall short when trying to explain the empty tomb using the Markan account. I also showed you that there is a perfectly good naturalistic explanation for the empty tomb, assuming a historical Jesus of course. I will now take you through four more of Craig’s arguments and show you once again how Craig falls short when arguing for a supernatural explanation for the empty tomb. This is C-Webb’s Sunday School!
I always enjoy a good debate between Christians and Atheist. After awhile though, I keep hearing the same arguments from Christians and it gets kind of old. So over the course of the next few episodes, I’m going to take a look at one of the fundamental arguments in the Christian apologist arsenal. The empty tomb of Jesus. If you listen to William Lane Craig debate, this is one of his most used “proofs” for the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. But, like most proofs used by Christian apologist, this one falls short when you examine the claims more closely and this is what we’re going to look at for this episode of C-Webb’s Sunday School!
