Episode07 - The End of Atonement

Episode 7 – Show Notes Like the rest of the sceptical world in 2018 we had to indulge in a brief chat about Jordan Peterson. We complete our ‘Summer of Atonement’ this month. Andrew gives us an overview of the theories Christians use to try to make sense of it. Frances also gives some thoughts on the full set of philosophical problems with the doctrine. Ed tries to tie it all together to see how it counts as evidence in the assessment of whether Christianity can be true. Can we leave it as...


Episode06 - Atonement – it is quite a story

Episode 6 – Show Notes Ed and Andrew report to Frances on their experiences of the Book of Mormon Show in London.

Then we move to our section “Reason and God” and we respond to Chapter 6 of the Christian book “Evidence for God: 50 Arguments for Faith from the Bible, History, Philosophy...


Episode01- Resurrection on Trial & A Journey to Doubt

Episode 1 – Resurrection on Trial & A Journey to Doubt After introducing ourselves we use Frances’ expertise as a prosecution lawyer to mull over the claim that conflicting witnesses to an event help show its veracity. This claim lies behind some Christian approaches to demonstrate that the resurrection of Jesus must have been an actual physical event in history. We read the trial of Jesus in Mark to guide us (Mark 14 v55-59) and discuss Matthew’s use of prophecy to guide his apparent...
