Reasons to Believe

  • Let me guess. You like science apologetics and you know it’s important, but responsibilities keep you from staying on top of the latest. And, if you’re like me, sometimes the technical nature of apologetics––and the smart people involved––makes it a little intimidating. In Cup of Joe on the Go, you’ll find brief summaries of recent RTB podcasts, articles, talks, books, and so on, in an effort to equip you. Also, this blog will engage you with a question-of-the-week. Thanks for stopping by for a cup of Joe on the go.

  • What is an impact event? It could refer to the cataclysmic events that played a critical role in preparing a place where life can thrive and flourish (the big bang or the formation of the moon, for instance). Or it could refer to an event that has left a lasting impression (a life-changing encounter or inspiring concert, for example). God uses these impact events to alter creation and, more importantly, the people he created. My hope is that this blog will help you see God’s work in creation and ultimately facilitate an impact event in your life.

  • As the only creatures made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26–27), humans alone pursue, discover, and reflect upon the truths of logic, mathematics, science, philosophy, religion, and the arts. Only human beings develop a comprehensive world-and-life view and philosophize about whether their belief systems best match reality. In the best sense, my hope is that this blog will help and challenge Christians to think carefully about the implications of their worldview.

  • After years of editing materials by RTB’s scholar team, we began toying around with the idea of taking the meaty evidence the scholar team discusses and breaking it up into fun-sized chunks. Though we’re not heavy into science or philosophy, we’ve discovered that without them we’re missing out on some important reasons to believe. (nudge nudge, wink wink).

  • When I started graduate school at Ohio University, I was an agnostic. But not for long. The elegant and ingenious designs of the cell's biochemical systems convinced me that a Creator must be responsible for the origin of life. That insight led me on a journey that culminated in my conversion to Christianity. Since then, I have come to appreciate the extensive scientific evidence for the Christian faith. The purpose of this blog is to describe and discuss some of this evidence, primarily focusing on the latest scientific insights into the origin and history of life and the remarkable designs found in biology.

  • I blog for two purposes: to spur on thinking and to pursue truth with others. Science and Scripture complement each other in the pursuit of truth. Science, rightly employed, informs us of how the physical world functions and helps us learn much about creation and our human physiology and well-being. Scripture informs us of the physical and supernatural realms, including the purpose and meaning of life as beings created by God and meant for relationship with God, each other, and all of creation. Science, limited to the material world, must be accompanied by theological inquiry that examines non-material realities if we are fully pursuing truth. I hope Theorems & Theology will be a dialogue (and not just a blog) on seeking truth in and through science and Scripture. I’m glad you’re here!

  • As an evangelist, I have found that the most effective way to engage nonbelievers is to use new scientific reasons for faith as a bridge to the traditional reasons. In this blog, I will describe and explain new scientific discoveries that offer more evidence for the God of the Bible, and I will show you how you can use these new discoveries as tools for evangelism. My goal is to interleave these articles with others that will equip readers to answer the latest challenges and questions from skeptics and seekers.
