There's contradictions in multiple historical texts, is this a problem?In this short clip, Zac and I discuss the issue of historical sources being inconsistent. While this is more focused on the resurrection, as the question was raised during a discussion about the resurrection, I felt it was greatly apropos to broader historical questions as well. Tying in knowledge from the Tet Offensive, Punic Wars, and more, when approaching it from a historical lens, note this video is about the historical lens and not the theological lens, it is apparent that a few inconsistencies is not a big problem at all. 
Responsibility is a theme found throughout history from existentialism to religion to Spiderman. In this video, we discuss the importance of responsibility and its implications in all of our lives. Through this discussion, I hope it would shed a new perspective on responsibility and its implications in how we act with others.

I recently came across a video named Why God Does Not Exist, today we check it out.I found this video greatly insightful as it approaches the topic from quite a unique angle. Most videos approach the topic of the existence of God from the problem of evil, or perhaps a direct critique of the Bible, but this turned to empiricism as well as some more psychological/ probabilistic claims.As such, I felt that it would be a good video to discuss.Video I respond to:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXiGll5Umjg--------------------------To check out more about my content feel free to go to my YouTube Channel Apologetics for All to access clips and extra discussions
