What On Earth Do We Know About HeavenWhat can we know about heaven? Randal talks with The Friendly Atheist (Hemant Mehta)

In this episode of the UK radio show “Unbelievable with Justin Brierley” (originally broadcast February 1, 2014) Randal discusses his book What on Earth do we Know About Heaven?

Hemant Mehta (The Friendly Atheist) provides his skeptical response. The result is an interesting exchange of perspectives regarding the afterlife.

 

Hallquist and RauserIs belief in God rational? The Reasonable Doubts Debate

In this debate, originally recorded in autumn, 2013 for the Reasonable Doubts Podcast, Randal squares off against atheist and blogger Chris Hallquist (aka The Uncredible Hallq) on the issue of whether belief in God is rational.

Hallquist argues that the defeaters for theism (of which he notes two: the problem of evil and Stephen Law’s evil God argument) are so substantial that nobody could rationally be a theist.

Randal offers the contrary view, arguing that one can believe in God as a properly basic belief (i.e. one accepted without evidence) or as a non-properly basic conclusion from evidence.
