Description

Imagine you have multiple pieces of data or facts before you. How do you make sense of it? Well you could try and draw up a theory or explanation that best explains the facts at hand. Enter Inductive Arguments. For example the resurrection of Jesus Christ has many historical facts attached to it (like the empty tomb, the martyrdom of the disciples etc.) Did the disciples steal the body? Did they hallucinate? Maybe Jesus didn’t really die in the first place? Maybe He had an unknown twin? How do you pick one theory as the better fit? Join us to know more!
