Theism vs atheism

This week I’m speaking on theism vs atheism – not a particularly simple topic to cover in 30 minutes or so…but I’ll give it a shot. Dinesh D’souza’s book, What’s So Great About Christianity has helped inform some of my more recent thinking. Considering that 92% of Americans believe in God [according to the 2007 study by Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life], D’Souza says this about atheists…”Throw a stone in the faculty parking lot of an elite American or European university and you have a good chance of hittting an atheist. But throw a stone anywhere else and you really have to aim.”

Speaking of universities — check out this interesting clip from a student, faculty forum that took place at a University of Michigan with guest presenter Dr. Ravi Zacharias [scholar, author, Christian apologist] addressing not only the issue of atheism but various other topics posed by the audience.

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
