62 Uncle Andrew and The EE & F, Part 1

62 Uncle Andrew and The EE & F, Part 1

August 12, 2022

Uncle Andrew in The Magician's Nephew exemplifies in one brief vignette ALL that I have been attempting to say in our series, "The Evident, Evidence and Faith."

Here is presented in a pellucid literary picture the nature of faith, of the evident, and evidence.

William Blake wrote: “We are led to believe a lie/When we see not thro’ the eye.”

This couplet exemplifies how contemporary thinking (especially among the elite) is anti-empiricist, anti-science and anti-rational, and why Western society seems to be committing suicide.

No Compromise 7: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Part 1

No Compromise 7: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Part 1

August 11, 2022

No Compromise is a new feature designed to make the themes and ideas of The Christian Atheist more accessible through conversation. As usual, Jenny's instincts are dead on - my dry didacticism requires a more popular appeal. It is our prayer that you find our discussions on No Compromise enlightening, entertaining and, more importantly, valuable in your walk with our Great God!

 

Qu'ils sont beaux les pieds!

 

In this episode Jenny and I begin a discussion on C. S. Lewis's THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE.

61 The Evident, Evidence, and Faith, Conclusion

61 The Evident, Evidence, and Faith, Conclusion

July 25, 2022

This, our concluding episode to this series, will constitute two-weeks' worth of episodes. I did not have the heart to divide this episode into two, as it was written as an organic unit. Sorry for the length, but I could not wrap up the points more succinctly.

What is faith? From where does it originate? What does it mean to have evidence for what you believe? Is faith the foundation for knowledge, or knowledge the foundation for faith? Most atheists and theists have never thought systematically about these questions, but they are foundational for any rational conclusions we may draw about God's existence or non-existence.

We began our discussion by attempting to unravel the difficult issue of the evident, then we turned our attention to human rational freedom, the ideal and metaphysics. We conclude this week by discussing what I might term "fundamental faith," the often unspoken metaphysics that underlies what we believe and colors every aspect of our life and rational consideration. The scripture that grounds our discussion is the oft-repeated phrase in the Creation story of Genesis, "and God saw that it was good."

Join us as we try to make sense of where we all stand before the Looking glass.

No Compromise #4: The Magician’s Nephew, Part 1

July 23, 2022

No Compromise is an experimental new feature on The Christian Atheist. If you are a regular listener, you know my voice, AND you know our story, or as much of it as we’ve told on the Christian Atheist. My wife Jenny was the “looking-glass” through which I returned to Christ. I tell the story in episodes 2-8, “The Machinery of the Looking-Glass.”

Qu’ils sont beaux les pieds! Isaiah 52:7. (If you'd like to know the backstory on this, check out the Valentine's Day edition of our Simple Gifts podcast!)

On "No Compromise" we will discuss Christian Atheist themes – with each other, and, if you’ll join us, with you!

This week in an attempt to lighten the mood of the past few weeks, Jenny and I read and discuss C S Lewis's THE MAGIACIAN'S NEPHEW.

60 The Evident, Evidence, and Faith, Part 3

July 18, 2022

We resume our series examining the concepts of the evident, evidence and faith.

What is faith? From where does it originate? What does it mean to have evidence for what you believe? Is faith the foundation for knowledge, or knowledge the foundation for faith? Most atheists and theists have never thought systematically about these questions, but they are foundational for any rational conclusions we may draw about God's existence or non-existence. We begin our discussion by attempting to unravel the difficult issue of the evident, then we turn our attention to human rational freedom, the ideal and metaphysics. Join us as we try to make sense of where we all stand before the Looking glass.

Last episode we examined freedom and metaphysics in relation to the evident, and this week we explore the chosen and fundamental metaphysical stances that determine our rational approach to our world.

My wife Jenny was the “looking-glass” through which I returned to Christ. I tell the story in episodes 2-8, “The Machinery of the Looking-Glass.”

I am so excited today to introduce to you my Jenny, my Looking-glass! Qu’ils sont beaux les pieds! (If you'd like to know the backstory on this, check out the Valentines Day edition of our Simple Gifts podcast!)

On "No Compromise" we will discuss Christian Atheist themes – with each other, and, if you’ll join us, with you!

This week, Jenny and I read and comment on the article by Sophie Lewis, "Abortion Involves Killing - And That's OK!" by Sophie Lewis

The Dobbs Decision: Justice Kavanaugh’s Concurrence

July 11, 2022

We here at the Christian Atheist stand for Truth above all. The historic Dobbs decision overturning Roe vs. Wade is read here WITHOUT COMMENTARY.

This installment is the concurring opinion of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

If we are to meaningfully engage one another on this issue, we must do so by first INFORMING ourselves on the RULING itself. Please send friends and opponents HERE to ground the debate in THE FACTS of the ruling. IF YOU HAVEN'T "READ" THE RULING, WHY SHOULD WE TAKE YOUR OPINION ON IT SERIOUSLY?
