Response to William Lane Craig – Part 12

Here is my main objection to William Craig's case for the resurrection of Jesus:It is not possible for a person to rise from the dead until AFTER that person has actually died. Thus, in order to prove that Jesus rose from the dead, one must first prove that Jesus died on the cross. But in most of William Craig's various books, articles, and debates, he simply ignores this issue. He makes no serious attempt to show that it is an historical fact that Jesus died on the cross.  For that reason, … [Read more...]

In Defense of Dwindling Probability – Part 4

Here is another objection to dwindling probabilities from Swinburne:"A defender of the argument from dwindling probabilities may...emphasize that all the same the longer the route of the argument (or the more conjuncts involved in the conclusion), the less probable is the conclusion; and so suggest that it is not plausible to suppose that an argument of any length would yield a very probable conclusion.

Christian Philosopher Says the Popularity of Apologetics Book Shows Christians Care about Evidence

Victor Reppert, a Christian philosopher who is a friend of this blog and who has his own blog at Dangerous Idea, argues that Christians really do care about basing their beliefs on the evidence.
