Answering Atheism

Monday, Oct 7, 2013 - 7pm ET

Trent’s main argument for God’s existence is that science can’t explain everything. But that’s presuming that our human logic can explain everything. So explain more how human thought is an accurate way to problem solve.

How do I deal with my sons who have left the Church and no longer believe in God?

I’m a good person. Is that not enough to make it to the afterlife? Why would I be punished if I’m a good person?

My 19 year old friend who was raised as a Methodist, has decided to become an atheist. How can I reach out to this boy yet still respect his right to question things?

Our morals come from God. But what about the psychoanalytic theory? Also, please comment on the new studies that protons can come into existence from nothing?

If God is going to have free-will Christians not sinning in heaven, why doesn’t he have that on earth also?

Does Trent know about the group Sunday Assembly (atheist group)?

Answering Atheism
Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries. We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
