That's So Chratheist, Show #2 (Full Episode)

4y ago


Truman Ardent Smith (Secular Humanist and Atheist) has a discussion with Fazale Rana, Ph.D. (evangelical Christian apologist and author). In this episode they have a random discussion on these science/religion topics: "God of the gaps" arguments, methodological naturalism (vs. philosophical naturalism), DNA as evidence for/against the existence of God, Noah's ark, and freewill. (Feel free to leave a comment here, if it has content and no personal attacks.) More Info on Fazale Rana, and his ministry at "Reasons to Believe" ---------------------------------------- Ministry website: Fazale Rana's Bio: --------------------------- Fazale "Fuz" Rana discovered the fascinating world of cells while taking chemistry and biology courses for the premed program at West Virginia State College (now University). As a presidential scholar there, he earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry with highest honors. He completed a PhD in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry at Ohio University, where he twice won the Donald Clippinger Research Award. Postdoctoral studies took him to the Universities of Virginia and Georgia. Fuz then worked seven years as a senior scientist in product development for Procter & Gamble. Research in biochemistry provided Fuz with the initial evidence that life must have been created. Although he recognized the work of a designer, he did not know the designer's identity. An acquaintance's challenge to read the Bible led him to believe that the God of the Bible is that Designer. Eventually, concern for the supposed incompatibility of science and Scripture led Fuz to Reasons To Believe (RTB). Today Fuz travels widely, speaking on science-and-faith issues at churches, business firms, and universities. He also participates in RTB's podcasts and daily blog, Today's New Reason to Believe, and has made guest appearances on The John Ankerberg Show, The Harvest Show, and Newsmakers (hosted by Jerry Rose on Total Living Network). Fuz also lectures for the Master of Science and Religion program in Christian Apologetics at Biola University. Since joining RTB as Executive Vice President of Research and Apologetics, Fuz has authored and coauthored the books Origins of Life, Who Was Adam? and, most recently, The Cell's Design. Additionally, Fuz has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including Origins of Life and Evolution of Biospheres, Biochemistry, Applied Spectroscopy, FEBS Letters, Journal of Microbiological Methods, and Journal of Chemical Education. He has made presentations at numerous international scientific meetings, coauthored a chapter on antimicrobial peptides for Biological and Synthetic Membranes, and holds two patents. A native of West Virginia, Fuz loves blues and southern and country rock music, particularly Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Johnny Winter, and Blind Willie Johnson. He roots for the Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Bengals, enjoys playing fantasy football, baseball, and basketball with his RTB colleagues, and likes reading Shakespeare - especially the tragedies.
