UPDATE: “The Groaning of Creation” – Preface – Chapter 1-1.5: Part I:

 

We completed our first session of our new book last Sunday.

One of the takeaways of the session was the discovery that when dealing with issues in theodicy, it wasn’t necessarily that we had a problem with the horror of suffering, death, and randomness in the world, but rather the real issue was that we had an issue with God – namely the goodness with God that we were having a hard time with.

You can read our essays here.

The youtube clip above gives us an interesting overview of the moral issues we have over animals.  Why is it that we have no qualms eating a cow, but we are repulsed by the idea of eating a pet cat?  They are both animals right?  Why is one right and the other wrong?  Answer seems simple and obvious, but it’s interesting to think about at another level.

 

 

Update: New Menu and sub-menu topic added – Cognitive Neuroscience and Theology

Just created several new pages pertaining to current studies within Cognitive Neuroscience and Theology under the new menu category Science and Theology on top.

Some topics of interest include:

  • free will; how human emotions affect our decisions
  • biblical understanding of the afterlife
  • is there an intermediate state after death?
  • do our identities survive after death?  If so, then how?
  • what the Apostle Paul believed about the afterlife
  • eschatological ontology
  • role of genetics and environmental influences upon the brain in relation with human free will
  • consciousness and the soul; do we even have a soul?
  • the selective and fluid nature of memory; false memories
  • Why are there so many factual discrepancies in the gospel narratives and accounts in the New Testament?

Check out the new page here.
