Transcript: Extrapolation of Atheism

  Today I wanted to take a look at a very heated debate about atheism, namely that whether anything can be extrapolated from Atheism, and if so, what logically follows from it.

The theist is right, in one sense, that the atheist necessarily falls into nihilism and absurdity; the theist is also wrong, in another sense, in that the … Continue reading Transcript: Extrapolation of Atheism

Icons and Idols: A Semiotic Theology

But a few shower thoughts (literally) have occurred to me, and which I think are nevertheless important, and which are too long for twitter.
