3 Wise Men and Science

The 3 Wise Men who came to see Jesus bearing gifts of myrrh, gold and frankincense were men of science.  

Today, many atheists claim religion and science are incompatible. What are your thoughts on this?

Saint Miracles?

We often hear of miracles performed by saints.  They may entail the restoration of vision, hearing, limps and overall health.

  • Are these miracles real?  
  • Can they be explained with science?  
  • Are these miracles just stories made to inflate a particular saint?

David Viviano vs Sacerdotus

**UPDATE Oct 14, 2014**

It seems that David Viviano aka Gamma Atheist does not want to go through with his acceptance to debate me.  I have messaged him on Youtube's Google plus channel and he deleted the thread.  

See this video as proof that I tried to work with him, but he got scared to debate me and ran off:


Well it seems David Viviano aka "Gamma Atheist" has mustered up some courage to debate me and I would love to do it.  It would be an honor to engage him.  However, he needs to contact me via email to discuss the details and the logistics as I do represent an institution and am not at liberty to make my own schedule etc.  

Moreover, the debate was my idea and I had told him where the debate would be (here).  This is the purpose of this blog.  I want to keep a static log of the debate for all to view anytime.  However, this does not mean a future debate cannot happen elsewhere after this first one takes place on this blog.  So in the mean time, it would be logical to hold the debate here until the other details are worked out via email for a future debate on another forum.    

The rules and layout are found on this post below.  I will wait for David to email me. This should be fun.  I hope other atheists don't ruin it with their nonsense.  


Rules and Format for Debates:

  • Both sides should provide coherent reasons supported by evidence.
  • No ad hominem, vulgarity and the like.
  • Arguments should be stable and not wander around.
  • If an argument is not clear or is too complicated, questions can be posted within two asterisk (*) symbols. ie **What did you mean by....**
  • The winner will be the one who has provided the strongest arguments.
  • If any participant fails to continue, he/she will be disqualified and deemed the loser.
  • No one other than the opponent and Sacerdotus will be allowed to comment on debate posts.

Format for Debates:

Opening Speech - Opponent

Opening Speech - Sacerdotus

First Rebuttal - Opponent

First Rebuttal - Sacerdotus

Second Rebuttal - Opponent

Second Rebuttal - Sacerdotus

Closing Statement - Opponent

Closing Statement - Sacerdotus

We all have heard about this place in books, stories and even movies.  Recently, Hollywood has been producing movies on the topic based on supposed experiences some have had of this place.

  • Is Heaven Real?  
  • Can there be a place where only the good go?  
  • Is this place a 'place' or state of existence?  
  • Can Heaven produce boredom?  

Share your thoughts on Heaven in the comment box below the post.

Does the Soul Exist?

The Soul has been the topic of discussion since man learned to reason and think for himself.  He has wondered what he is and if the body he controls is all that exists.  Rene Descartes believed that the soul controlled the mind and body.  This soul was immaterial and self conscious.

Many religious faiths especially the Catholic Church, believe that this soul is immortal and that it is what brings life to a corpse.  However, today many philosophers, physicists, psychologists and neuroscientists believe the soul does not exist and the brain is responsible for cognitive functions including the sense of self.

  • What do you think?  
  • Does the soul exist?  
  • What evidence can be used to support the existence of a soul or non existence?  
  • How can science study the soul?

Universe From Nothing

From the Book of Genesis to Modern Physics, humanity has wondered what the universe is made out of and how it came to be.  Did it come from 'nothing' or from 'something?'  Today's physicists believe the former.  Does this prove or disprove God?

Evolution - Does it disprove God?

Since Charles Darwin proposed the idea that organisms have evolved from a common ancestry, the idea has been used by atheists as a declaration for "God is dead."  Evolution as a natural process is believed by atheists to refute the necessity of a creator or God.

  • Is this true?  
  • What makes the Theory of Evolution a victory for atheism?  
  • What makes the Theory of Evolution compatible with God as Creator?

Is the Bible a collection of 'Myths?'

The Bible is the world's most renown book.  It holds the record for being the top best selling book ever in human history and can be found nearly anywhere across the globe.  The Bible is also said to have been the first book ever printed by modern press technology.

Many atheists have questioned its authenticity and claim it to be nothing but a collection of myths - many which they claim were borrowed from other mythologies.

  • What do you think about the Bible?  
  • Is it truly the Word of God or just a hoax?  
  • Does it convey history or is it a collection of myth and/or a retelling of previous myths.  
Thank you for reading and for your comment. Please be patient if you posted a comment. Spammers and other people who hide under "anonymous" sometimes post vulgar or nonsensical comments that I cannot post for obvious reasons. If your comment pertains to the posting and is free of ad hominem and vulgarity, rest assured it will be posted.
