Divine Command Theory Explained

A popular argument for God’s existence is the moral argument. Here Christians have the advantage of grounding objective moral values, such as “good,” in God himself.

Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence – Debunked

Haven’t you heard that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence?  Isn’t that what Christians are constantly being told?  Well, I’m here to tell you . . . that’s demonstrably false, and here’s why.
