Featured Blog: Faithful Thinkers

Recently, I have been debating an atheist. Like most atheists, he believes in evolution. The trouble with discussing this topic with him is that he makes no distinction between micro-evolution and macro-evolution. Now, micro-evolution is small changes within species; there are variations within species (for example, dogs will always produce dogs -- from Great Dane to Chihuahua -- they will never produce cats or any other species). This is observable in nature. Macro-evolution is major changes, from one species to a completely different species, over long periods of time. An example would be a rat evolving into an ape (seriously, this atheist brought that up and admitted that he has no idea what transitional mammal would be in-between!). I think it's rather obvious that the two are not the same (and of course, macro-evolution has never been observed).

But you will recall that this atheist does not see a distinction between the two. His reasoning was that macro-evolution requires micro-evolution; that is, abrupt changes in species requires small changes over long periods of time. That was when I came across an excellent blog, which I am featuring this week: Faithful Thinkers. This blog is filled with articles and videos on apologetics from "faithful thinker" Luke Nix and contains recommended podcasts and books from prominent apologists.

I highly recommend Faithful Thinkers to anyone who is interested in learning more about Christian apologetics. Be sure to browse through this site and be prepared to learn how to defend your faith in the process.

As for that atheist, well, I am still debating him; but here is the link which helped me get through the micro/macro-evolution hurdle: http://lukenixblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/useful-or-useless-evolutionary-terms.html. I will let you all know how the debate goes down.

Be sure to check out other sites recommended by the DCF blog, and don't forget to enter my book giveaway which ends next week!
