The Origin

I’ve been absent from the blog-o-sphere due to schooling and such. So I apologize to those who wish I were more active. In any case, here’s a great video my friend made that discusses the origin of the universe and why one ought to think that the universe was created not unintended. Check it out! […]

List Of 18 Arguments For God’s Existence And Christian Claims

As per the last post, the following list is a compilation of various types of arguments either directly for God’s existence or that implicitly support theism, and arguments for the truth of historic Christianity (not solely Philosophical ones though): Cosmological Argument: Argues from the world back to God as the ultimate cause of the world.

50 Important Philosophical Questions

I’d like to offer a very simple post here (something I can’t seem to do very often).

Moral vs Factual Distinctions Last time we looked at some distinctions found within moral discourse. As mentioned in the conclusion of the previous post, we’ll be turning to how basic moral arguments are formed and the distinction to be made between the two types of premises in such arguments. Later, we will apply this knowledge […]

Philosophy And Christianity (Part 4): Distinctions Within Moral Discourse Part 1

I am going to address some useful distinctions that arise in the field of ethics or moral discourse.

Theory Of Knowledge (Epistemology) And It’s Useful Distinctions It just so happens that the primary obstacles to belief in God, in our culture, are those which limit our knowledge. For example, if we are only able to gain knowledge about physical things, and not immaterial or non-physical things, then the question of God’s existence is […]
