The Kalam Cosmological Argument NOT Debunked

By Evan Minton I discovered a YouTuber called "Rationality Rules" very recently. One of his many videos is "The Kalam Cosmological Argument Debunked - (First Cause Argument Refuted)" which you can watch here. One of my patrons brought this video to my attention and requested that I respond to it, so here we go. For the uninitiated, The Kalam Cosmological Argument is formulated as follows: 1: Whatever begins to exist has a cause. 2: The universe began to exist. 3: Therefore,...

How Can God be Sovereign over Evil and not Morally Culpable for It

Transcending Spiritual Gymnastics

By Nathan Howe ‚ÄúSpiritual‚ÄĚ people, specifically non-believers, can have some pretty comical explanations of the supernatural as they come out of Atheism. Coming from a perspective that attributes no part of existence by any Spiritual guidance or conscious force, is a horrible building block to start learning about spirituality. Truly, the case consists of individuals who fight tooth and nail to believe that existence is a freak accident, then turn right around and contribute omnipotent characteristics to things like, Nature,...
