In this blast from the past, Jim introduces the Transcendental Argument for the existence of God, responds to email concerning objections to the Anthropic Principle and talks about the sometimes ‘hidden’ nature of God as he interacts with his children today.

For more information about the scientific and philosophical evidence pointing to a Divine Creator, please read God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe. This book employs a simple crime scene strategy to investigate eight pieces of evidence in the universe to determine the most reasonable explanation. The book is accompanied by an eight-session God’s Crime Scene DVD Set(and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.

    I just listened to the podcast, Introduction to the Transcendental Argument.
    Lately, I’ve come across other Christians who would like more miracles, ie. miracles in the Old Testament. To that I say, there are miracles all around us all the time. Though not split the sea size that I personally know about. They are everywhere if we stop doubting.
    Ex., My son was 5 yo, in the beginning of his kindergarten year. He was given a science project to bring in different colored leaves over the next weeks. We lived in MN. Normally we have all the colors of leaves he was to look for, without any difficulty, but for some reason we could not find any orange colored leaves that year. We even asked friends to look for orange leaves in their neighborhoods, but to no avail.
    This was unusual, but we weren’t worried at all because we were spending the weekend at a cabin in No. MN, where the leaves would be abundant. We went out the first morning up north to look for the leaves, before my husband was to take the kids and some relatives on a boat ride. Long story short, no leaves, boating accident, my husband and brother in law died, my two sons were on life support, and my sister in law was also hospitalized.
    ……The first morning back to school, no orange leaf (the least of our worries), but I didn’t want my son to worry about anything after what happened. I told him his teacher would not mind. As we walked out the door to the waiting bus, lo and behold a beautiful orange leaf blew across the driveway and landed right in front of us!
    Not a miracle to most, but absolutely a miracle to me. No doubt in my mind it was a God thing.
    This was 19 years ago and one of many miracles I won’t forget. We have so many miracles in front of us all the time if we would stop being so cynical and appreciate what’s in front of us. We have so much to be thankful for. ❤️
