Ep #69 - Something FROM NOTHING Reveals Intellectual BIAS Of A Great Philosopher?!
Show Notes

Hypocrite! Biased! These are descriptions we don't want to hear. We sometimes assume that these don't apply to experts and the best minds out there. But it does apply to all. In continuation of our exploration of the creator behind the universe we take a pit stop to assess what and why one of the best atheist philosophers, J L Mackie, held out his objection against the cause of the universe. You'll be surprised to see how the commoner and the expert are often similar in intellectual inquiry.

SAFT Apologetics stands for Seeking Answers Finding Truth and was formed off inspiration from the late Nabeel Qureshi’s autobiography that captured his life journey where he followed truth where it led him. We too aim to be a beacon emulating his life’s commitment towards following truth wherever it leads us.
