A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to see...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and scientific...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim? I...

It’s Just Blind Faith

Some skeptics and atheists say that anyone who believes in God is exercising a purely blind faith.  They describe it as a faith without evidence or proper justification.  So, when you don’t know what the answer is or don’t have enough facts, just blindly insert “God” as the answer or cause and now you’re a theist.  But, is that what a theist is actually doing?

 

                                                                       So, Whattaya Do?

Ask a question: When doing scientific experiments, how do you know the scientific constants today will remain exactly the same tomorrow?

 

The answer is they don’t!  They take it on faith and presuppose that the constants will remain the same tomorrow as they are today.    There is no way to perform an experiment on tomorrow’s constants today, so scientists use inductive logic and predict that they will remain the same.  This principle is known as induction and it’s actually how all of science is done.

 

Hmmm… should we call that blind faith?  No!  Both scientists and theists can and do correctly use logic (inductive reasoning) to predict or forecast scientific conclusions.  But on an atheistic world view, why should anything remain constant in a spontaneous and randomly created universe? 

How is structure, order, and uniformity the result of a random and chaotic explosion?  Moreover, where do the immaterial laws of logic which govern all thought come from in a Godless universe?

 

You see the scientist presupposes all those things to be true, but doesn’t think beyond that.  The necessary preconditions of intelligibility render the atheistic view false.  On the other hand, the theist also presupposes and holds to induction and logic.  However, they go one step further and ask how can immaterial laws of logic exist, and how can the universe maintain uniformity out of unguided processes.  Seems like it would take a lot more “blind” faith to believe there is no force or law giver behind all this!

Without a God there are NO laws of logic, NOR any sustaining force keeping all things constant.

 

So now you know Whattaya Do.  Thanks for asking.
