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.

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!
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. I demonstrated that when interpreting Genesis within it’s proper historical context and within it’s original language, we get a pre-existing earth covered in water and God miraculously pulling forth dry land. This did two things. One, it showed God did not create something out of nothing and two, that this idea is patently absurd when it comes to modern scientific understanding. In this episode I will look at the second patently absurd notion contained within Genesis and prove once again the Genesis is not a scientifically accurate description of the origins of our world and that is the idea of a solid firmament surrounding earth.
