Applying Homicide Investigation Techniques to the Case for God’s Existence (Video)

J. Warner Wallace previews the approach he’s taken in his latest book, God’s Crime Scene: A Cold Case Detective Examines the Evidence for A Divinely Created Universe ( How do detectives know when a murder has occurred? Every death investigation presents one of four possibilities; the victim died accidentally, died from natural causes, committed suicide or was murdered. Only one of these circumstances requires someone outside the room to enter the scene. Accidental deaths, natural deaths and suicides can occur without an intruder. Homicide detectives, therefore, are looking for evidence of outside involvement. One important question must be asked and answered: “Can the evidence ‘in the room’ be explained by staying ‘in the room’?” This question is key to determining whether a death scene is a crime scene. As we examine the universe around us, a similar opportunity awaits those who want to begin the most important of all investigations. Can everything we see in the universe be explained solely from causes found within the natural realm, or is there evidence of an outside “intruder”? Is the universe a “scene” that can be explained by natural “internal” forces, or is an external “intruder” a better explanation?
