Opening for Dinner in Durham

As you may remember, I am hosting a dinner for a few members of the blog on my home turf, in Durham NC, on Monday Sept. 24.   One of the people who had originally planned on coming has had a conflict and has to back out.  So I have one more opening at the table.  If you are interested in coming — the first to respond gets the seat!  Please contact me not here on the blog, but via email at behrman@email.unc.edu    The only requirements are that you be a member of the blog, that you show up willing to talk, and that you pay for your own meal.

    Why don’t you think the prime mover or cosmological argument is a good proof for God?

      It has the same problems as any theory of origins: where did the origin or originator come from? So it doesn’t *solve* the problem but just asserts a different answer to it, and one that isn’t needed. (If you say, God was always there, then you’re saying you don’t need an originator, so the argument is self-defeating.)

        Professor, if the cosmos is assumed to be evidence of an originator, do you think it is evidence of exactly one originator, as opposed to a multiple, and if the evidence is for the existence of a creator(s) billions of earth years ago, is that evidence that the orginator(s) still exists?

          I don’t think it does provide evidence, by the fact of its existence, of some kind of originator (if you mean a personal force, who “created” it)

    Will Hurricane Florence postpone these dinner plans?

    I’ve just read page 121 of Triumph of Christianity – and I have to ask, Bart – will you be ordering Sea Bass for this dinner?! 🙂
