This page in brief …. So far in this 6 Reasons to disbelieve in God series, we have looked at the problem of evil, and the so-called hiddenness of God (if he’s so hard to see, maybe he’s not there). This post we examine the thought that religion is the way a bygone age thought, […]
This page in brief …. For most people God isn’t evident in the world, but is hidden. But why would a loving God hide from us? Perhaps he’s not there after all? Or perhaps there is some reason why she’s hidden from most of us? This is the second post in our examination of possible […]
This page in brief …. I have written extensively on reasons to believe God exists. So I thought it only right to consider the counter arguments, reasons to disbelieve in God. This is the first and I believe strongest reason to doubt the existence of God – the evil and suffering in the world. Why […]
Not long ago I completed a series of posts on reasons to believe in God. The series started with 12 reasons to believe in God and finished with Why I believe in God. I cannot pretend to be objective, but I can try to be fair, so I am beginning a companion series, 6 reasons […]

This page in brief …. Christians believe that Jesus showed us what God is like. If that claim is true, we have a strong reason to believe God really exists. So in this page we look at three criteria that we might use to evaluate this claim – the historical evidence for Jesus’ life and […]
This page in brief …. Some people have deep spiritual, or mystical, experiences. Many of them believe they have experienced God. Psychologists have examined these experiences, which are very real, and can describe some of their common characteristics. Could this really be God communicating with people? Let’s look at the evidence that psychologists have uncovered.
The plot thickens! So far in this series, I have presented 6 reasons to believe that a theistic explanation of the universe and humanity makes more sense than a naturalistic explanation. Each reason increases the probability that there is a God. But is that God a personal being, as most of the world’s monotheistic religions […]
