In my debate on the rationality of Christian belief, David C. Smalley asked for historical evidence that Jesus rose from the dead. I provided evidence. I noted that there is no […]
Over the years, I have seen Christians invest countless hours attempting to reason with atheists who are overtly contemptuous of their Christian and theistic beliefs.

In this video, I explain why I prefer to argue for properly basic belief in God by way of the more […]
This is a sermon I recorded for a local church in our time of coronavirus home-church.
