Does consciousness point to God? Sharon Dirckx and Philip Goff

Does consciousness point to God? Sharon Dirckx and Philip Goff

November 1, 2019
The mystery of mind and consciousness are causing some philosophers to move away from physicalist explanations to theories such as ‘panpsychism’.

Philip Goff is a consciousness researcher whose new book ‘Galileo’s Error: Foundations for a new science of consciousness’ defends panpsychism. He engages with Christian thinker Sharon Dirckx who has a background in neuroscience. Her new book ‘Am I Just My Brain?’ aims to show why consciousness points towards God.

Does the story of evolution match the story of Genesis? Niamh Middleton and Andrew Parker

Does the story of evolution match the story of Genesis? Niamh Middleton and Andrew Parker

October 18, 2019

The first two chapters of Genesis are among the most contested in the Bible when it comes to evolution and faith. Justin is joined by a Christian and agnostic who both claim to show a significant overlap between the Genesis account and evolutionary history,

Theologian Niamh Middleton, author of ‘Homo Lapsus: Sin, evolution and the God who is love’, says that Biblical account of human creation and fall maps onto what we know of the evolutionary record.

Agnostic scientist Andrew Parker, author of ‘The Genesis Enigma: Why the Bible is scientifically accurate’ says that the stages of the 6-day creation account in Genesis also map onto the stages of development of life on the earth.

Has the church misunderstood St Paul? Steve Chalke vs Phil Moore

Has the church misunderstood St Paul? Steve Chalke vs Phil Moore

October 11, 2019

Church leader Steve Chalke isn’t afraid of causing controversy in the evangelical circles he once moved in. His new book ‘The Lost Message of Paul’ claims that the church has misunderstood the theology of St Paul when it comes to faith, hell and Christian universalism.

In a feisty exchange, pastor Phil Moore says that it’s Steve who has misinterpreted Paul’s thinking as they debate which books the apostle wrote, the nature of salvation and whether Steve accurately represents the views of scholars such as NT Wright.

Do we live on a young or an old earth? Ken Ham vs Jeff Zweerink

September 20, 2019

Ken Ham is the founder of Answers In Genesis. They promote a Young Earth Creation view of science and scripture, believing the earth is only 6000 years old. They also run the Ark Encounter attraction in Kentucky - a life-sized replica of Noah’s Ark.

Jeff Zweerink, a research scholar for Reasons To Believe, defends an Old Earth Creation viewpoint, arguing that the scientific evidence supports a universe that is millions of years old, but that it does not contradict Genesis chapter 1.
