    Ep #61- Can Inductive Arguments Tell Us Whether Smoking Is Dangerous?

    Ep #61- Can Inductive Arguments Tell Us Whether Smoking Is Dangerous?

    Imagine you have multiple pieces of data or facts before you. How do you make sense of it? Well you could try and draw up a theory or explanation that best explains the facts at hand. Enter Inductive Arguments. For example the resurrection of Jesus Christ has many historical facts attached to it (like the empty tomb, the martyrdom of the disciples etc.) Did the disciples steal the body? Did they hallucinate? Maybe Jesus didn’t really die in the first place? Maybe He had an unknown twin? How do you pick one theory as the better fit? Join us to know more!

    Ep #59- Why & How Should I Show Christianity Is True?

    Ep #59- Why & How Should I Show Christianity Is True?

    In the previous episodes we concluded our section on 'knowing Christianity is true'. In this episode we begin our quest on 'showing Christianity is true'. Join us this time as we begin exploring the question of how to show Christianity is true. The central challenge is how can a Christian who may claim to have personal experience of God present to others that his/her experience is not delusional? What common grounds can be stood upon to disengage from this epistemic standoff? Let's find out!

    Ep #58- But What If I Don't Feel God's Presence?

    Last time we looked at the intriguing concept of ‘properly basic belief’ and what it means to us when we ask the question ‘how can I know that God exists’. In this episode we conclude the dialogue on how we can know Christianity is true by analyzing the role arguments play here. If I can know that God exists through the inner witness of the Holy Spirit then do I even need arguments? Aren’t they redundant? Well why don’t you tune in to know our thoughts!

    Ep #57- Can I Believe In God Despite The Objections?!

    Ep #57- Can I Believe In God Despite The Objections?!

    We are back with episode two of Natural Theology!! Throughout this series we explore in bite-sized format the question if there are any good arguments for the existence of God. Last time we discussed the self-authenticating inner witness of the Holy Spirit and the role it plays in our knowing that Christianity is true. But can it justify our belief in God even if there are arguments that counter it? Can our experience of God be something as fundamental to our knowledge in the face of objections and arguments as our knowledge of our innocence/guilt in a situation? Join us as we explore this most fascinating question!
