America After 9/11: Is Religion Evil?

Attitude Adjustment How did 9/11 change America’s attitude toward religion? An interesting post on CNN’s Belief Blog says: “Before 9/11, many atheists kept a low profile. Something changed, though, after 9/11. They got loud… Criticism of all religion, not just fanatical cults, was no longer taboo after 9/11.” Indeed. Around the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, American Atheists […]

Video: Atheists Turned Apologists

Watch This Some Christians say, “people don’t come to faith through apologetics.” My guess is they just don’t know anybody who came to faith this way. But that doesn’t mean nobody does. For example, Paul’s efforts to persuade Jews and God-fearing Greeks resulted in “large numbers” coming to faith (Acts 17:2-4). We also know Augustine […]

A Simple Defense of Miracles

Are miracles really possible? I’m not talking about how some describe a baby being born as “the miracle of life.” I’m talking about biblical reports of Jesus walking on water, healing the blind, and physically rising from the dead. Atheists sometimes say miracles overturn the laws of nature—and that’s not possible. Before considering the evidence, however, many skeptics have already decided that naturalism is true.
