Have you heard these claims before?
- A good God would not allow innocents to suffer.
- Faith is purely subjective, like belief in Santa or the Tooth Fairy.
- Science has made faith obsolete.
- We don’t need to debate unbelievers; all we need to do is live exemplary lives.
- Faith is a blind leap in the dark.
- Religion is a private matter and shouldn’t be argued about.
The fact is, all of these claims are false and can be refuted.
In hisaudio presentation, How to Talk to Atheists— Patrick Coffin conducts captivating interviews with three of the best in their respective fields when it comes to refuting atheist claims.
Each interviewee tackles the challenge of atheism from his or her own expertise: Dr. William Lane Craig (philosophy), ex-atheist Jennifer Fulwiler (dealing with family members), and Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J. (the latest discoveries of modern physics).
