Here is my interview with Alan Darley on his show “Good Reasons to Believe”.
My talk is called “Pragmatic Arguments for a Skeptical Age”. Enjoy!
I’m excited to announce that I will be on “Good Reasons to Believe” this Sunday 1/27 at 10am CST. The show’s host, Alan Darley, and I will be discussing skepticism and the so-called pragmatic arguments for belief in God (think Pascal and William James).
I met Alan through the Unbelievable? Group on Facebook. We share a passion for Thomism and debate. I thought it would be interesting to discuss James and Pascal since I think they are often misunderstood and have fallen into disfavor among apologists. Nonetheless, I think such arguments present a very powerful case against the Sagan-esque skepticism of the “New Atheist”, which is often expressed by the ECREE slogan (extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence).
Details: the show streams through Ustream live (Sunday 1/27 4pm UK time, 10 am CST, 11am EST). You should be able to find the show through this link NCG Studios: The Place. Hope you’ll tune in!
