One day a court official who worked for the queen of Ethiopia (and who happened to be a eunuch) was on the road headed toward Gaza. The apostle Philip had been sent there to chat with him. When Philip got close, he heard the eunuch reading from the bible. Philip asked him a simple question:
Above, you see the beautiful window of York Minster; a style typical of many Christian churches. This particular window is over 500 years old. Who can deny the talent of the craftsman who created this work of art, especially with the tools available in his time! Continue Reading…
Check out this interview where an agnostic known as “The Infidel Guy” interviews well-known atheist Bart Ehrman.

You like apologetics? Me too. This is a big (early) weekend.
The big ticket is the 2011 Online Apologetics Conference. It starts at noon CST, Thursday April 7, and runs through Saturday evening. You can buy a pass to the whole weekend, or for a single day. It will also be recorded, so you don’t necessarily have to be online to watch it live.
Big deal number 2. Tonight, William Lane Craig debates Sam Harris on the topic, “Is Good from God?” It will be streamed live from 7-9pm EST at Notre Dame Television’s website.

There seemed to be a bit of confusion on the topic, and Dr. Krauss did not fare well, but it was well worth watching. If you missed it, audio and video of the event are available from Apologetics315.
