  1. Hi, I’m 15 year old boy from India
    Do we have rational reasons to reject theory of evolution? I heard that we have found several transitional fossils establishing the authority of theory of evolution more firmly. I’m becoming an atheist because now it seems argument of God like Kalam’s argument, Contingency argument, etc. are with assumptions which they can’t themselves prove to be reliable like the assumption of Premise 1 of Kalam argument, and morals and design can be explained by evolution.

    • Hi Motti, Instead of leaving a comment on this video, I think you might be more likely to get a response if you click on the “Contact: Ask a Question” link to the upper right.I would like to mention that, though there are apologists who argue against evolution, there are plenty who have no problem with evolution. I’m pretty sure that includes Dr. Lennox. Also, there’s David Bentley Hart, Robert Spitzer, NT Wright, and John Polkinghorn, just to name a few. Had more to say but ran out of space.

    • I think that the fact evolution happened or not is irrelevant. There are ChristianScientists who believe Evolution happened and it doesn’t conflict with our faith (You can read more about this at Biologos).The center of our faith is not if evolution is true or not,its that Jesus rose from the death and the evidence for this is very strong (Read MikeLicona or GaryHabermas).For scientific evidence read/look in youtube:William Craig or Frank Turek.Debates are very useful.Watch John Lennox debates.

  2. I have been blessed by listening to many of Dr. Lennox lectures on YouTube
    I would love to make use of some of those videos in church, are they in the
    public domain? Can they be used?

  3. I’m struggling with stuff that God does in OT like Leviticus 26 and other. Killing of the innocents and sending sickness. I know Jesus said when you have seen me you have seen the Father. But I have a gap in the difference. I listened to you at the unbelievable conference and think you would be a good person to give me some insight into this. Iv looked on Google but with different perspectives and lots of comments that didn’t help me. Thankyou. I trust your insight having listened to you.

  4. I love this argument between you and Darwin you really opened my mind and eyes to some things I did not thing of concerning your answers to Darwin, but I want to know more of this debate between you and Darwin .

  5. John,
    I have just read your latest excellent book”Determined to Believe” and thoroughly enjoyed it. A young man that takes the view that election is to salvation is citing 2 Thess 2:13 in a discussion with me. I was wondering if you might have dealt with this passage in your book.The verse includes the idea of sanctification, is that the way you see it in the context?
    Will appreciate it if you have time to respond.

  6. What is the best way to approach your pastor who is more of a fundamentalist when it comes to creation and will not give the gap theory any kind of chance even when explained the way you explained it in your book, “Seven Days that Divide the World”. I am a youth teacher and do not want to go against my pastors wishes when teaching on creation but I also don’t know if I believe the fundamental Christian viewpoint when it comes to creation and your book made a lot of sense to me.

  7. Is evolution a religious myth? Darwin: “Why, if species have descended from other species in fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms?” Stephen Gould: ” The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology.” On natural selection he says, “You can’t fly with 2% of a wing.” Name one example of change of KIND (not within a species). Richard Dawkins says that DNA of an amoeba would fill 1,000 SETS of the “Encyclopedia Britannica”. Specified complexity by chance? Behe: molecular machines, like a, car are irreducibly complex. Name a chemical or mathematical formula or engineering principle that illustrates evolution.

  8. When Adam and Eve sinned, did god have to change every fundamental process of nature. To make it as we understand it today? Is fall and winter sinfull by definition? Was eden without seasons?

  9. Are seasons a result of sin? Did Adam and Eve bring upon this world our nature as we understand it? Or is evolution by Gods plan what we can understand today?
