He believes in extraterrestrials and yet we have absolutely ZERO evidence of those. The fact that there is life on this planet does not qualify as evidence for life on other planets either. It's only evidence we exist. April 7, 2019 Reply The Socratic Atheist Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV)Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Kind of ruins your whole video. April 7, 2019 Reply Mr InvestiGator The faith you place in the Bible isn't blind, because it's based on evidence… that comes from the Bible itself. So the bible is true because it says it's true, and your faith isn't blind because you've already asserted that your belief is true, based on your belief. Which is somehow evidence.What?? I'm trying to rediscover faith for myself and thought this video might be helpful, but it's exactly this kind of pseudo-intellectualism that makes it hard for people to take Christians seriously.

I don't dissent from it, I don't retreat from it. You're just going to have to accept it. Now THAT is evil." That depends. Is the man of faith asking YOU to accept his faith and become a part of his religion? Or is he merely asking you to accept HIS right to believe? Is he just defending his own right to accept something without evidence? If he's holding a weapon on you and threatening to kill you if you don't accept his faith, then THAT is evil. If he's not…if you say no, and he shakes the dust off his feet and moves on…then there is nothing evil about that. I sincerely hope Mr. Dawkins is not saying that merely having faith is evil, regardless of what is done or not done in the name of that faith…but having heard him speak before, I could hardly be surprised if that were the case.

April 7, 2019 Reply zerrubabbel It seems your argument is based on two things… TLDR: The bible cannot be a valid starting point for philosophical discussion. 1. Admittedly conflating the ideas of Faith, Belief, and Trust. Tho they may have similar etymological roots, they do have different meanings in Modern English. You're right to examine the text based on the meanings of the original manuscripts, but this conflation cannot be valid when talking in terms of Modern English. 2. A lack of understanding of evidence, or at least "good evidence". If the bible were true, then it should be well supported by verifiable observations. There should be non biased evidence from outside the bible, and outside the church supporting things such as the resurrection, the flood, the Isrealite presence in Egypt, or any other hot apologetical topic. At the very least, the flood and the Isrealite presence in Egypt are not supported by Archaeology or forensic earth sciences. Stack this up against evidence that contradicts biblical claims such as– Observed speciation within the lifetime of [many] still living generations. Arguably the majority of all people on earth.– A proper understanding of Transitional species, and how the fossil record supports it. [Every organism that has ever lived, or is living, or that will live, was, is, and will be a transitional species]– Galactic red shifting and the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation– A precisely measured value for the speed of light, and parallax measurements of stars greater than a young-earth number of light-years away– Predictions of General Relativity made and verified. When Faith is defined as a belief without evidence, then perhaps there are situations where characters in the bible were not acting on faith when interacting with Jesus, but for me, as in the context of reality rather than a story, taking the bible for more than just a story in the first place is still an act of faith. April 7, 2019 Reply Christine Deepa Shut up. I don't know who we walk with and which idiot killed me. So, For me I don't care if evidence/ relationship with God is established by themselves to enjoy or deny it , because it's more reading the Bible and word becoming life. It's like creators love letter. I am bothered about the murderers who kill this beautiful life and act smart. Hell waits. God makes everything clear like crystal. If you don't see I don't care. I want hell for every abnormal life killiers. April 7, 2019 Reply j s I think most religions people would object to redefining faith as evidence based confidence.

It is a common deception atheists use to try to convince the unwary that faith is the same as blind faith and as usual they are false. April 7, 2019 Reply David Robertson I heard a lot of this proper understanding of faith when I read Karen Armstrong's "The Case for God" several years ago. I was an atheist at the time and this idea of faith as closer to trust in definition broke the spell the New Atheist outlook held over me. I realised that many of their talking points are faulty and misinformed and that scientists don't have all the answers. Love this video, this enormous misconception needs to be swept away.

Many people believe that he will come first. But what if he already came and is cheating the world, and we don't know? When the real Jesus comes he(as he is hidden his true identity) could claim (real) Jesus is antichrist as (real) Jesus came first?

Someone could claim to have faith without evidence or reason or someone could have a great deal of evidence. The evidence has to be examined independently of the the faith claim. April 8, 2019 Reply Gerald Koh Cheers for the vid IP!

Keep it up! It’s excellent work. April 8, 2019 Reply lockon Would we agree that, from a Christian point of view, an atheist is a religious person? That this person doesn't see God but if they did, it would be in the form of self righteousness. Then rejecting Christianity is leaving salvation on the table and there is no reason to reject it. Why does Christianity have the distinction of occupying this space? It seems ravening to impress judgment on one point rather than many. If you fail this one point, you lose everything, but if there are many questions you may be get a 90 or 70 on the test. Pretending skip the test does not stop human behavior, it just makes its precepts harder to question. Remember every old patch was once a new patch. I'm not arguing for law, I'm saying that Christianity is not a choice in practical reality, it's voluntold. It seems cruel when judgement does land home because salvation was so simple.

However, completely unrelated, I have noticed a new rift in theology that is arising, and it interests me as I am a pursuing a degree in atmospheric physics. A response would be preferred regarding the question of climate change. As you may know, the Earths climate is changing rapidly. If humans do not take take account for the long term climate patterns, the Earth will suffer from drastic effects, which, in very extreme terms, may result in extinction of the Homo Sapien species as is with the corresponding mass extinctions in Earths prior history. A very small percentage of theologians are concerned with this. If the human species goes extinct or severely impositioned , how does this line up with the return of Jesus? Creationists such as Ken Ham have simply denied climate change by deducing that god would not give humans “dominion” over Earth and that we are not in control of Earth’s fate. What is your stance on this? It is not a impediment right now, but I can see it encompassing farther as the Earth continues to change in its climate.

April 14, 2019 Reply Brotherhood Knight "Blessed are those who have not seen me, yet still believe" April 15, 2019 Reply Matt Holton How the word Pists (trust/faith) is used in the Bible does not define how people use the English word Faith when talking about religion. Most people I know when speaking about religious faith clearly discriminate that faith from the use of the word to mean trust or loyalty. Faith need not be blind, in my opinion. Blind faith needs the adjective to discriminate it. Someone who believes something without any reason or evidence, essentially believing without cause could be described as having blind faith. People espousing religious faith usually have a reason for their faith. If you talk to Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Jains etc, as well as Christians and ask them why they believe they will usually have a reason. Their faith is therefore not blind. It may be wrongly placed, their reasons may be bad reasons, but they do have reason for what they believe. To accuse someone of having faith, as if it were a kind of insult, is to miss the point. If you want to debate with someone about what they believe, ask them the reason why and engage with them about those reasons. Do not use 'faith' pejoratively, as if were a kind of debating weapon. However, if you ask someone why they believe something and they say 'because I have faith' then you need to ask more precise questions to find out if there is an underlying reason. If the only reason someone can give for their belief is 'faith', then I think you would be justified in describing their faith as blind. April 16, 2019 Reply Black Shark Hello, man.

April 27, 2019 Reply Uber Genie The Greek word for faith means trust and trust is not a way of knowing. By equivocating on the meaning of faith Dawkins sets up a strawman and then proceeds to attack his own misrepresentations of the concept. Intellectually and emotionally childish is no way to go through life! James 2 says that the demons believe and they shutter. The demons were formerly in God’s presence and know that God exists but they don’t have faith due to la k of trust not lack of knowledge. Jesus and his followers argue from premises their audiences knew to be true. Paul goes to the synagogues and argues based on evidence from scriptures. No other world religion is so anchored in facts easily debunked as false than Christianity. Time and time again followers engage audiences that don’t hold the same worldview, and the Christians refer to things their audiences have witnessed!

May 9, 2019 Reply RickinHKG First: I think that the creator behind InspiringPhilosopy is IMHO the best Christian apologist I have ever come across. I thoroughly enjoy his content. Second: That does not mean I will be changing my skeptical position anytime soon. Playing word games with the word faith does not change the intent behind the phrase. You could just as easily replace the word faith with Mr. IP’s preference of trust and/or loyalty and the intent behind the statement would be unchanged. Blind Faith is no difference to Blind Trust or Blind Loyalty. To claim that Faith is belief without evidence is not a strawman argument. To quote Bertrand Russell; "We may define "faith" as a firm belief in something for which there is no evidence. Where there is evidence, no one speaks of "faith". We do not speak of faith that two and two are four or that the earth is round. We only speak of faith when we wish to substitute emotion for evidence."After an interesting beginning, Mr. IP uses the bible to prove the bible which is obvious circular reasoning. He is normally better than that. In the interest of brevity, I will address just one analogy from the video, the one about the drink at the bar. Deciding to believe her friend is not a faith-based decision, it is one of risk vs reward. It is common sense weighted with previous experience of reliability. It is not faith. Peace.
