A Rational Fideism; An Intuitive Extension

“To me, the paradox doesn’t make me sit back in awe of God’s mysterious ways, but rather, it makes me wonder, ‘how can people really believe this?’” –The Closet Atheist Previously, I refuted the notion that God simply wants us to sit back and read the Bible without an inch of thought, but there are other questions…

Twitter Friendly; a Man After My Own Heart

Earlier today I found this. It’s not an argument for God in any capacity, but simply important to the defence of my worldview. Dr. Tavis Dickenson can be found here.

A Rational Fideism; An Oxymoronic Refutation

“It’s your illusions, fatal contradiction / I need the action, premonition.” -Amaranthe, Drop Dead Cynical “Second,this position is fideistic and is self-defeating. For either it has a reason that we should not reason about God or it does not. If it does, then it defeats itself by using reason to say we should not use…

For the Heavy Skeptic Part 3

Last but not least: The Leibniz Cosmological Argument The following is William Lane Craig’s variant, found here. 1. Anything that exists has an explanation of its existence (either in the necessity of its own nature or in an external cause). 2. If the universe has an explanation of its existence, that explanation is God. 3….

“Logic of Love” Defended Part 1

Universalism has been at the top of my list of ponderings for quite a while, and since I still have no scriptural argument to defend it, there are some key points in my position that I want to defend and expound upon. I say “my position” even though I’m not sure exactly where the chips…

For the Heavy Skeptic Part 2.5

Why the 2.5 you ask? Because It’s much more asthetic to have 3 Reasons and not 4, and I have 4 that I think I ought to share. Argument From Reason I have seen multiple variants of this argument expounded on and defended by Victor Reppert in Dangerous Idea and Alvin Plantinga in Where the Conflict…

Short Story

One of my short stories: The Tale of Mr. Cato Aonman. A lot of the ideas I implemented can be found in “Miracles” by C S Lewis, “Warrant and Proper Function” and “Warrant and Christian Belief” by Alvin Plantinga. I also threw in Wormwood and Screwtape from Lewis’s “Screwtape Letters”. I’m not going to pretend…

For the Heavy Skeptic Part 2

2. Epistemic Possibility Every person perceives the world through a faculty, or a number of them, and as is also obvious, our worldviews are based intensively from these perceptions- and when i say perceptions, I include both reason and sensuous perceptions; Perception with reason is the Mind’s eye, and perception with the senses through the…

For the Heavy Sceptics Part 1

3 Reasons to believe in God that Can Be Proven from the Couch. You may think that rediculous because anthing can be proven from the Couch with a laptop, but my aim is much more extravagant; I’m claiming to put forth three reasons that don’t need a computer to be proven. Just a rational mind….

An interesting Find.

A good case for Universal Salvation can be found here. “1. The NATURE, CHARACTER and ATTRIBUTES of GOD. The nature of God is LOVE. This love is infinite in degree unlimited in extent, and endless in duration. It therefore extends to every sentient being that ever did, does now, or ever will, exist in the universe….

Freedom; Metaphysics of Libertarian Free Will

​”When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.” -Genesis 3:6 NIV Every time I’ve heard the word…

The Grand Contradiction; Questions Regarding Love and Justice

“There is no greater love than this; that a man would lay down his life for his friends.” -Jesus of Nazareth Perhaps some of you are already filled with rage at the entertaining of a Heretical notion ill defined but perceived- and rightfully perceived. I mean no disrespect, or sowing of discord; All I want…
