Welcome to Still Unbelievable!, where we examine Christianity. Sometimes we will discuss an episode of the Unbelievable? podcast, sometimes we will test how well Christian arguments stand up because, as sceptics, we think that all beliefs should be challenged.
In this episode physics professor Brian Blais joins Andrew and Matthew to discuss The Fine Tuning Argument, The Second Law of Thermodynamics, contingency, evidence for the Christian claim of a historical resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, and other topics found in Justin Brierley's book Unbelievable?: Why After Ten Years of Talking With Atheists, I'm Still a Christian. As you listen, you can decide for yourself whether Christian Apologetics draws appropriate conclusions from the best science of today. And, you will also have a meaningful guide if you read Justin's book.
Dr. Blais has a Ph. D. In physics that emphasized computational neuroscience and was the recipient of a three year NSF research grant to study computational neuroscience and the recipient of the Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN) grant. He is an active member of many professional organizations including The Geochemical Society and The American Statistical Association. He teaches undergraduate physics at Bryant University and is a research professor at The Institute for Brain and Neural Systems at Brown University. Brian has written extensively on Bayesian Probability and is currently writing a book about Bayesian Analysis that is geared toward readers with a less mathematical background but nevertheless have interest in understanding probability. He also listens to and regularly blogs concerning topics covered on Unbelievable?.
