Stealing From God

Stealing From God | BASIC Course (Self-Paced)

Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case

Course Description

What if your best reasons to doubt God show that He actually exists?  What if atheists, properly understood, are actually unwitting apologists for the God they reject?  That’s the case I make in the book and new online course called Stealing from God:  Why atheists need God to make their case. 


Stealing from God is organized around CRIMES, which highlights the intellectual CRIMES atheists are making.  “CRIMES” stands for Causality, Reason, Information, Morality, Evil and Science.  Those are aspects of reality that some atheists say disprove God, when, in fact, those things wouldn’t exist unless God existed.
