In this first edition of Robert Interviews An Atheist, I have the pleasure of chatting with Ryan Price, a thoughtful skeptic I encountered through comments on my blog posts.

Peter Singer vs Andy Bannister on God, Atheism, and Morality

I recently watched the below excellent debate between Peter Singer and Andy Bannister on the question of objective morality, among other things. I was particularly surprised to hear Singer, who is a famous atheist utilitarian moral philosopher, admit that he now believes that objective moral values do exist, possibly as Platonic objects (similar to mathematical ...

Epistemology: 5 – From Engineer To Intuitionist 3

This will probably be the most important video in my series on epistemology. This is the one where I lay out in depth the core of my own personal epistemology. Also, if you happen to struggle with decision making, this video might help you with that too (or at least gain some clarity on how ...

After my debate with Manny, and subsequent reading of the book he recommended, Bart Ehrman’s How Jesus Became God, I’ve been on a bit of a theism vs atheism kick, and decided to read probably ...
