Thrive Perspectives: How We Know

Show notes

On this episode DJ Paine and Matthew Jacoby sit down and get a bit philosophical....

Bertrand Russell

The New Atheists: These authors include Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Christopher Hitchens.

"Empirical" knowledge.

Scientism?

Hebrews 11:5-6 "It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Romans 1:18-20 "But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."

Alvin Plantinga and Reformed epistemology.
