Did The Historical Jesus Rise from The Dead

By Luke Nix Introduction - Why Is Jesus' Resurrection So Important? Those who have followed this blog know that I focus a lot of my writing on defending the compatibility of science with the Christian worldview and that I spend much energy addressing philosophical and logical challenges to some of the finer details of Christian theology that skeptics offer as defeaters for the Christian worldview.

16 Bad Atheist Arguments and How to Respond to Them

By Jeremy Linn With the NCAA Final Four coming to the Twin Cities this weekend, it seems appropriate to have our own little March Madness Tournament. Instead of college teams, we built a bracket with some of the ‚Äútop‚ÄĚ bad Atheist arguments. Below we list 16 of these bad arguments and list at least one problem with the argument for each. Much more could be said for each of these arguments, so we present this post with the risk of...
