Description




Mark Twain wrote ‘Faith is believing what you know ain’t so’. Travis Dickinson, co-author of ‘Stand Firm: Apologetics and the Brilliance of the Gospel’, says that both Christians and atheists often adopt a faulty definition of faith. It is less about beliefs, and more about ventured trust on the basis of evidence.



He engages with Brian Blais, an atheist computer scientist, who recently published a paper on faith, probability and evidence, arguing that faith is a bad epistemology (way of knowing things).



Later in the show Justin interviews ben Jacobs about Genexis, a series of talks at Coventry Cathedral from well known speakers on the big questions of life www.unbelievable.live
