Reason or Logic as Applied to Science and Religion
REASON: a basis or cause, as for some belief, action, fact, event, etc.
LOGIC: the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference.
When it comes to science and religion, conventional wisdom seems to indicate that LOGIC is the sole domain of science and has no place in religion and Christianity in particular.
Some folks even feel that in order to proclaim yourself a follower of Christ, you must check your brain at the door of the church and suspend all reasoned and rational thought.
Has science finally succeeded in rendering God obsolete? As a follower of Christ, do you have to accept the Bible’s claims about God with blind faith alone? Can topics such as the existence of God or the bodily resurrection of Jesus be proven using REASON or LOGIC?
My challenge to you is that if you take the time to work your way through the videos on this site, you will arrive at the conclusion that it takes more faith to remain an agnostic or atheist than it does to accept the existence of a Christian God. However, if you are an anti-theist as Richard Dawkins claims to be, you will most likely remain so regardless of the evidence.
Biologist and author Richard Dawkins is convinced by the way, that the end of his life will amount to nothing more than a small pile of carbon and a bag of bones. In other words to paraphrase, your existence ends at the same point in time that your extinction begins – at dead.
WHO THIS SITE IS FOR
I put this site together for the sincerely seeking skeptic as well as the Christian who may feel doubts creeping in from time to time.

These doubts can be understood given the militant anti-theist, anti-Christian books hitting the stands today … books such as The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, The End of Faith by Sam Harris, or God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens.
Books such as these coupled with the anti-Christian sentiment that seems to pervade academia and the media today, tend to lead some of us not only to doubt, but to also feel a bit embarrassed in proclaiming ourselves followers of Christ for fear of being labeled.
Even Barak Obama made the off-handed comment during a campaign stop in San Francisco that there were still those of us in America that “… get bitter, they cling to guns or religion …” Cling? Tends to assume a sense of desperation coupled with a certain degree of intellectual deficiency spoken with a large dose of contempt.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND
This site is a compilation of videos starring the above-mentioned authors as well as other anti-theists engaging in debates with Christian apologists such as Dinesh D’Souza, William Lane Craig, Michael Licona, Gary Habermas and others.
HOW THE DEBATES ARE FRAMED
Using primarily LOGIC alone, these Christian apologist debaters will argue such issues as the existence of God, the possibility of morality without God, and the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ after 3 days in the grave. In other words the apologists will be debating these issues with their Bible tied behind their back.
The REASON for this is that the anti-theists reject the authority of the Bible. And by preeminently rejecting the authority of the Bible these anti-theists are attempting to frame the debate on their own terms using what they perceive to be REASON or LOGIC.
BRING IT ON!
These Christian apologists will no doubt prove to you once and for all that it is the anti-theists who are forced to make the leap of faith and suspend all LOGIC in order to hopelessly cling to their bankrupt worldviews.
The videos you will find in the left hand menu are embedded YouTube Videos. I like the YouTube format because of the 10 minute limit (in most cases) that YouTube imposes on its video uploads. Most of these debates exceed an hour, but are broken down into 10 minute segments which makes it easy to fit into a busy schedule by giving you discreet starting and stopping points.
For the followers of Christ, remember that we are to be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a REASON for the hope that is in you.
And to the sincerely seeking skeptic, question the LOGIC of your presently held worldview and ask yourself whether in the face of the evidence, your present worldview should be allowed to stand?
