Reading Time: 2 minutes Thanks to “sam” for this guest post (reposted again) that he created based on one of his comments the other day: In Jonathan’s post titled, “Inter-Testamental Moral Relativism,” a hypothetical exchange between an atheist and an Xian highlights the morally relativistic nature of a fundamentalist worldview that defends the idea that executing a man for […]
The Kalam Cosmological Argument: Causality and Time
Reading Time: 4 minutes I am going to talk about another issue with the Kalam Cosmological Argument, as presented by apologist William Lane Craig. I will do this by quoting extensively from my recent book Did God Create the Universe from Nothing? Countering William Lane Craig’s Kalam Cosmological Argument.

Counter Apologist’s riposte to William Lane Craig on the Kalam
Reading Time: < 1 minute Counter Apologist has produced an awesome series detailing issues with William Lane Craig’s Kalam Cosmological Argument, which is a pet obsession of mine. This must have succeeded enough, since it warranted a response from Craig himself. Here is Counter’s response to Craig.
William Lane Craig Misrepresents and Strawmans CA on His Podcast, Denying Science
Reading Time: 2 minutes William Lane Craig and his obsequious co-host recently slammed Counter-Apologist and his criticisms of Craig’s use of time and the Kalam, in his recent podcast. Craig takes chap potshots at CA and is pretty disingenuous. I have red a transcript of CA’s upcoming reply, and he is spot on.
Check this video out as it will give you some background.
Guest Post by The Thinker – A Short Look At William Lane Craig’s “Refutations” Of The B-Theory Of Time
Reading Time: 6 minutes Over at the website Closer To Truth, which is a site about an agnostic who goes around interviewing philosophers and scientists to try to find answers to the biggest and deepest mysteries of the meaning of existence and the universe, there is a profile of William Lane Craig. In it, they summarize his arguments against the tenseless theory of time. I want to quickly address them here.
Craig’s done his homework to try to put this theory to rest, but I think he ultimately fails. I’m not going to go into detail here, but I will add a few thoughts how I think each of his refutations are ultimately baseless.

Time, Free Will and the Block Universe
Reading Time: 14 minutes So I came across this site on my internet travels (actually, through a naturalism group on facebook) and it provides a really good introduction to a number of difficult topics within the realms of physics and cosmology. In this piece, physicist Andrew Thomas elucidates on the topic of the reality of the universe, the nature […]
Argument Against a Perfect Being Creating the World
Reading Time: 2 minutes I was listening to a podcast by bloggers Reasonable Doubts recently whereby one of the contributors, Justin Schieber, formulated a logical argument showing the inconsistency of the classic understanding of God, particularly a God who moves from an eternal (a-temporal) existence, to creating time (and space) and living within the framework of such dimensions. This […]
