Is Faith in God Reasonable?

faithThis past Friday, Purdue University hosted a debate as part of Symposium 2013: The Foolishness of Faith.  The debate, “Is Faith in God Reasonable?”, was held between Christian theologian Dr. William Craig and Atheist philosopher Alex Rosenberg.  The debate was sponsored by Purdue University, Biola University, and Craig’s apologetics ministry group Reasonable Faith.

During the debate, Rosenberg stated

In all honesty, if Dr. Craig could provide me with any kind of a logical, coherent account that could reconcile the evident fact of the horrors of human and infer human life on this planet over the last 3.5 billion years with the existence of a benevolent, omnipotent agent then I will turn Christian.

You can watch the debate here.
