Presented by Justin Schieber, Host, the Real Atheology YouTube Channel

Description

'An Atheist and a Christian Walk into a Bar' is a new book by atheist Justin Schieber and Christian theologian Randal Rauser. It's a friendly and philosophically deep dialogue on some interesting arguments surrounding theistic belief. Of what relevance to the question of the existence of God is massive theological disagreement? What about the hostility to life of the vast majority of our universe? These two questions - pulled directly from the book - are the focus of this interactive and exploratory presentation.
