Where people come from

Over at Evangelical Realism, we’re discussing the presuppositional argument for where people come from. Persons, it seems have to come from a personal god. Bears, however, don’t need to come from a bear god, or trees from a tree god, so there may be a bit of bias behind the notion that persons have to …

“I have written a book”

Over at Evangelical Realism, it’s time for our weekly dose of presuppositional apologetics, about which Pastor Feinstein could write a book. I wish he’d just publish the one he’s already written, because based on the excerpt he provides, it sounds like he’s got a good start on disproving all the supernatural elements in the Judeo-Christian …

Enter the zingers

Christianity, atheism, and worldviews

Over at Evangelical Realism, we’re discussing Pastor Stephen Feinstein’s claims regarding Christianity, worldviews, and what he says are the inherent inconsistencies and irrationalities of the atheistic worldview (which according to Pastor Feinstein is a single, well-defined worldview with a distinct set of unique and identifiable properties). I expect some of you will enjoy that sort …

The Christian metaphysics of God

Over at Evangelical Realism, we’re looking at Pastor Stephen Feinstein’s presuppositional apologetic for God, as presented during his debate with Russell Glasser from The Atheist Experience. This week’s installment: the Christian “metaphysical” understanding of God. Stop by if you find that sort of discussion interesting.

Fallacies of a contingent God

Over at Evangelical Realism I’m taking a break from my usual book reviews to indulge in a post-mortem of Stephen Feinstein’s debate with fellow FtB-er Russell Glasser. It’s my chance to dig in and play with some of the presuppositional apologetics stuff that I’ve heard floating around, and a bit of fun besides. (With apologies …

Justin Martyr on the pagan roots of Christianity

In this week’s installment of Justin Martyr’s First Apology, Justin explains to us exactly why so many elements in the Christian faith have pagan antecedents. It’s an argument you may have heard before, but I bet at least some of you would be surprised to find that it goes all the way back to the …
