Lee Strobel, of The Case for Christ infamy, was asked a series of questions by Hemant Mehta and his friendly band. Will these answers change the arguments made by the likes of Strobel? Or be more insightful and inspiring that those of Greta and Ebon? No, I dont expect them to, thus the name of the post. While the fifth fact doesnt have quite the same virtual universal consensus, it nevertheless is conceded by 75 percent of the scholars and is well supported by the historical data if assessed without preconceptions. There is simply no reason for me to accept that eyewitness testimony of a stranger at face value, much less when they are making such outlandish claims with no corroborating evidence. So lets look instead at this moral plan. Second, if not the brain then where does the mind come from? The author would probably say a soul. As I said above we dont know how the big bang came about. The Teleological ArgumentGreg Koukl: Why is something here rather than nothing here? Clearly, the physical universe is not eternal (Second Law of Thermodynamics, Big Bang cosmology). Theres scientific speculation that the universe may well be infinite (only one specific reading of the second law says otherwise), that because all elements move from a less stable to more stable states existence is more stable than non-existence, the possibility of the big crunch, multiverse theory, quantum level creations of matter, and so many others. The limitations are well understood and the initial reasoning behind them is sound. Ive said it before and it remains true, you cannot answer a mystery with a greater mystery.
