Church shooting in Tennessee discussion/analysis

Another Church attacked, this time a shooting. Is there Atheist involvement? Muslim involvement? Pure mental illness and nothing else? We don’t know, but it’s all fair speculation. Join Max, Andrew, and Matt/Brandon in an informal stream!

Atheists Always Lie #03: Physics and Biochemistry and Evolution

Please support our work via Paypal or Bitcoin or Patreon. Atheists make a lot of claims on science, but what’s so funny about it is how few scientists will back up many of the claims they make, and how few scientists are actually Atheists.  Indeed, Atheists are a minority among scientists even in places like China, where Atheism is rigorously enforced by the government, and most Nobel laureates in fields like Physics are Christians even today, with a good representation from believing practicing Jews and some other religions. And that’s because belief in God is rational and useful in a field like Physics, and is well-evidenced!

Tune in for this off-the cuff discussion!

The Argument from Contingency: A Brief Synopsis

Stars and Universe GalaxyDefinitions:

Def 1: A contingent being is a being such that if it exists, could have not-existed or could cease to exist.
Def 2: A necessary being (or non-contingent being) is a being such that if it exists, cannot not-exist (and therefore could not not-have-existed and cannot cease to exist).

Note: I use ground-reason essentially to do the work of the German Grund, a word which neither the English “ground” nor “reason” sufficiently captures in meaning, since it unites the sides of being and knowing, the ontological and the epistemological, in one.

The Argument 

1. A contingent being C exists.
