Ep. 45 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.17 – Can God Ground Morality – Part 1

11/11/2019
More
We look at Dr. Stokes' take on the divine command theory to ground morality in an objective state. This, of course, brings up the infamous Euthyphro dilemma. The argument is one that many bring up when objecting to the claim that God can coherently be the source of morality. In this episode, we cover the introduction to the dilemma and next episode we'll cover the refutations of the objections.

Ep. 44 – Tulips & Honey Podcast Interview

11/4/2019
More
We talk about our salvation story, how we met, what our show is about, and how we picked the name "Cave To The Cross Apologetics". We also cover topics like why Christians should be readers, Christians need to learn from their history, Christian living, and what books we recommend and don't. We also engage in some tomfoolery that is completely to blame on Lauren & Becca. The post Ep. 44 – Tulips & Honey Podcast Interview appeared first on Cave To The Cross Apologetics.

Ep. 43 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.16 – Morality Is Personal – Part 2

10/28/2019
More
We finish up this chapter with the discussion of Dr. Stokes' critique of values when it comes to morality. If naturalism is true, there seems to be a lot of issues that result in understanding what values are and therefore what moral imperatives are. This is a lead up to his main argument of why the Christian God offers a better alternative to naturalism in making sense of moral reality.

We once again slow down to cover an important part of Dr. Mitch Stokes’ argument. We want to be clear in our presentation of his arguments. While a non-careful reader could see Stokes going down the route of making a post-modernist argument this chapter and the next really set up his entire point of the [...] The post Ep. 42 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.16 – Morality Is Personal – Part 1 appeared first on Cave To The Cross Apologetics.

Ep. 41 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.15 – Can Science Determine Human Values

10/14/2019
More
In Chapter 15 we go over Dr. Stoke's critique of Sam Harris' well-being theory for objective morality. It does appear that what Harris claims is objective is just another subjective standard.

In this second part of chapter 14, we continue to look at Sam Harris’ attempt to use well-being as an objective grounds for morality. We look at well-being from a standpoint of whether it’s a moral good or more of a prudential good (a good thing to do rather than being good in and of [...] The post Ep. 40 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.14 – An All-Natural Morality – Part 2 appeared first on Cave To The Cross Apologetics.

Ep. 38 – How To Be An Atheist – Ch.13 – Moral Mammals – The Evolution Of Ethics

9/23/2019
More
Ethics is the principles by which people act morally. If the world is guided by evolution, where does morality come from? How do we make sense of what seems to be a strong desire to understand right and wrong? Does science hold the key to living our best atheist life now?

We close the science section of the book with the discussion about whether or not science could even attempt to tell us whether or not God exists. But does the belief in God root itself scientifically and does it have an impact? We discuss!

Don’t worry – we start off explaining what metaphysics is and why it’s important. We then go in and discuss the failure of natural physicists to try and explain metaphysics using only a physics-based approach. We get partial and also discuss in what way people do come to their belief in God.

We take a look at the two most current theories of science, general relativity and quantum mechanics. Those have to be the ones that are revealing truth to us!

Alright, look! Science may be hard and it may not be as sterile as we think it is, but look at what science has given us! You can’t argue with success, right?

We finish up the chapter about the difficulty of true science. We look at just how hard scientists hold onto theories and that they aren’t just isolated from background beliefs. Christians don’t have to be skeptical of science but we must realize that worldviews play an undeclared, yet important, part of science.

We continue to look at what actually doing science is and how scientists actually do science. In this episode, we see that effects beliefs of scientists have when they do science. Not only do beliefs play a factor but we see that scientists actually rely on trusting authority and are trained to be indoctrinated.
