When atheist and theist get into arguments, the theist will eventually come out with this gem of a counter-argument “well, you can’t disprove God!” The typical atheist response is “you can’t prove a negative” or “you’re making the positive claim, so you have to provide the evidence for your god.” These are all well and good responses but what if… Read more »

      Comments Off on Episode 40 – Science and Genesis – Part 2

In the last episode I showed you how the first and second verses in Genesis are not only scientifically inaccurate but that they are so far removed from modern scientific thinking that anyone defending this position either does so out of ignorance or clever rationalization.
