Dr. Paul Kurtz, representing secular humanism, drafted the "Humanist Manifesto II," and is currently the editor of Free Inquiry, the main Secular Humanist magazine in America. Representing Christianity is Dr. Norman Geisler, Chair of Christian Apologetics at Veritas Evangelical Seminary in Murrieta, CA; author and co-author of over thirty books, including When Critics Ask, When Skeptics Ask, and Christian Apologetics.
About 400 years ago, philosopher David Hume declared that miracles are impossible. They simply do not happen. But according to a poll commissioned by our guest, Lee Strobel, 67% of Christians in America today believe that God still performs miracles today; 15% disagreed, saying God does not perform miracles today. But, surprisingly, 38% responded that they had personally experienced God’s miraculously working in their own lives. We will examine the evidence for miracles in this encouraging 3 program series.
The John Ankerberg Show is a daily half-hour radio program and a weekly half-hour internationally syndicated television program using informal debates between representatives of differing belief systems, and documentary-styled presentations on major issues in society to which the historic Christian faith has something of consequence to say. The programs are designed to appeal to a thinking audience of Christians and non-Christians alike.
