Did God Create the Universe from Nothing?

Reading Time: 7 minutes This was the question I sought to answer in my book of the same name, with the subtitle of Countering William Lane Craig’s Kalam Cosmological Argument [UK].

Craig’s Reformulated Kalam & CosmicSkeptic: Free Will and Other Problems

Reading Time: < 1 minute Here is the third and final instalment of the critically acclaimed philosophical trilogy looking at criticising the Kalam Cosmological Argument. In this video, I look to continue my commentary and then go back to look at William Lane Craig’s pitiful defence of the idea that God could “choose to create”, “make a decision ” and […]

Act & Potency: Responding to a Critic

Reading Time: 6 minutes Some weeks back, I posted a short piece on act and potency, “Criticising the Idea of Potential and Actuality in Natural Law Philosophy” in which I quoted extensively from a book I am presently editing by Gunther Laird.

Defending the Kalam with the B-Theory of Time

Reading Time: 3 minutes This second video below looks to show, whilst taking the view that the A-Theory of time as being inconsistent with science and therefore the Kalam, that the B-Theory of time can be used to defend the Kalam.

Divine Foreknowledge, Time, Free Will and Thomism

Reading Time: 7 minutes This is effectively a guest post by Ficino, commenter and sometimes contributor here at ATP. Massive thanks to him as I need as much help as I can get these days! I and Ficino have written about this topic previously, linked below. These were long comments that originally appeared at Debunking Christianity: Here I try […]

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.
