Choose Your Own Topic / Is revelation a greatness-making property?
« on: November 16, 2013, 08:29:15 am »
If you don't think the ontological argument is valid then this isn't really the thread for you, but if you do, hi, I had a thought.

Is a God who reveals himself greater than a God who does not? Is revelation even a property? Perhaps we could say 'is being communicative a GMP'? Because, if it is a GMP and the OA passes, then this would have two implications:

1 The OA would conclude with theism rather than deism

2. When using Bayes' theorem to assess the probability of the resurrection, the probability of ressurection on the background evidence (P(R|B)) would be a lot higher. Current appeals to prime movers and blasphemers are good enough, but I feel this would make it a lot more reasonable.

Any thoughts?

Choose Your Own Topic / Introducing myself
« on: September 29, 2013, 03:41:28 am »
Hi there,

This seems like a friendly place where the customary thing to do is to introduce oneself

I am an 18 year old male who starts a course in Economics at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom in a week's time.

I was raised in a liberal christian home, but through summer camp and christian friends was opened up to a much more rigorous conservative faith which I have been grabbed by and now seek to defend.

I have been a huge fan of Dr Craig for about 18 months now and finally feel like I know enough and have seen enough of his debates to answer pretty much everything I'm likely to come up against at university.

Personally, my favourite (I'm english, I spell it with a 'u') arguments are the argument for the resurrection of Jesus and I love how many atheists in Craig's debates assert all premises of the moral argument.

The debates I have most enjoyed are his ones with Ahmed and Millican, no one else I feel has really made him think.

I hope I will be welcomed here and look forward to interesting debates with people of all worldviews.

I'm not sure what else to say- I like sports, rap music (Christians check out Reach Records), reading and (surprise surprise) debates.

Grace and Peace
