Ep #84 - What Would YOU Do If GOD Commands R*PE?!

3/3/2024
"Do the gods love the pious because they are good or are they good because the gods love them?" This ancient Greek dilemma has implications for the moral argument even today. And what if God commands us to commit an evil? Does it cease to be evil? Or does it remain evil?

Ep #82 - Moral DUTIES: The Great Stumbling BLOCK for Atheism!

12/18/2023
It's one thing for you to say 'stealing is bad'. It's yet another thing for you to say that I shouldn't steal. What gives humans and the institutions that we made (police, judiciary, international tribunals etc.) power to mandate moral behaviour over other humans? Where's the overruling authority to base the idea of 'moral duty'? And why can't atheism ever answer this? Tune in to find out!

Ep #77 - God and Eastern Minds: Breaching Cultural Barriers (ft. Jacob Cheriyan)

12/25/2022
Is Christianity a white man's religion? If not, given the extensive depth of theological and philosophical exploration done in the West, how do we present God, Gospel and Christ to the Eastern mind? Is it an attempt that ends up in compromising Biblical truths? Or won't merely preaching the Gospel be enough?! What is the need for these cultural gymnastics?! Jacob Cheriyan has been pioneering the project God and Eastern Minds (GEM) to make culturally substantiated inroads in presenting the Gospel in India. What follows is one of the most fascinating and perspective orienting interactions on SAFT Podcast!

Ep #71 - What Does A SHEEP, Its MOTHER & The HERD Have To Do With The Big Bang Theory?!

10/2/2022
Just because a sheep has a mother it doesn't mean that the herd (collection of sheeps) would have a mother too. So likewise, just because the things within the universe have a cause/creator it doesn't mean that the universe (collection of all things) has a Cause/Creator. Is that a solid objection? Nope, not really (well the sheep and the herd both have a shepherd so....). Join us as we close down on the defense of part one of the argument for God from the universe's existence.

Ep #70 - God: Timeless, Outside Or At EVERY POINT In Time?

9/18/2022
If you say God always existed, why not say the same for the universe? If you say that God is 'timeless', what does that even mean? If there was no time prior to the Big Bang, how was God's relation to time? Is He still timeless now? In this episode we give you a sneak peek into the interesting area of God, time and eternity and conclude our look at the objections from one of atheism's most prolific thinkers to God creating the universe out of nothing.

Ep #69 - Something FROM NOTHING Reveals Intellectual BIAS Of A Great Philosopher?!

9/4/2022
Hypocrite! Biased! These are descriptions we don't want to hear. We sometimes assume that these don't apply to experts and the best minds out there. But it does apply to all. In continuation of our exploration of the creator behind the universe we take a pit stop to assess what and why one of the best atheist philosophers, J L Mackie, held out his objection against the cause of the universe. You'll be surprised to see how the commoner and the expert are often similar in intellectual inquiry. Chapter markers: 00:00- Intro 01:42- Recap of EP 68 03:51- Core of Mackie's objection to KCA 07:28- Number of objections by Mackie 08:48- Why talk of a not so well known philosopher as him? 11:29- The 3 objections 14:38- Why doesn't he deny Premise 1 of KCA? 20:45- Outro Links and citation: Watch the video podcast here (https://youtu.be/R2Tkn2t8L-g) Equipping the believer defend their faith anytime, anywhere.

Ep #68 - Do Atheists Think BEETHOVEN Could POP Out Of Thin Air In Your Room?

8/21/2022
The question remains: if the universe could really come from nothing, then why can't Beethoven or Bhagat Singh pop out of nowhere? If NOTHING created the universe, if really NO-THING created the universe then why the preference for universe(s) alone? Why can't anything and everything appear out of nowhere, from nowhere, and for no reason? How can the lack-of-anything (nothing) have any preference? What are the three solid reasons to say something cannot come from nothing (or that everything that begins to exist has a cause)? Join us to find out.

Ep #67 - Btw, DAVID HUME Is On OUR Side For Kalam Cosmological Argument

8/7/2022
Why does it look like philosophers get stuck in mundane and trivial details blowing it out of proportions? For instance, do you think that if you were to 'imagine/conceive' in your mind Dora the Explorer popping into existence from thin air in your room that she could actually appear out of thin air in your room? No right!? But philosopher J L Mackie thinks so. We look at Mackie's absurd position, miracle-denier philosopher David Hume's point of agreement on the Kalam and more in this latest episode.

Ep #66- Exploring Possible vs Probable vs Plausible

7/24/2022
‘It’s impossible that you win the lottery’. Or wait; is it ‘it’s improbable that you win the lottery’? Maybe the right way to say is ‘it’s implausible’. What do these words mean? And why is it important that we know the difference to better articulate our points? In this episode Ankit rejoins Jacob to unpack what is meant by the terms possibility, probability and plausibility. Join them as they continue exploring and explaining the Kalam Cosmological Argument in the Natural Theology series.
