Is Religious Experience Evidence for God?
N.B. Clicking on further links within the Popup will stop the audio.
In his Premier Christian Radio programme Unbelievable?, transmitted on 27th March 2010, Justin Brierley and his guests discussed the question of whether Religious Experience can be evidence for belief in God.
Richard Morgan and Todd Pitner both experienced adult conversions from atheism to Christian Faith.
Richard Morgan, whose conversion story two years ago has been told before on 'Unbelievable?', questions whether atheists who rule out personal experience as evidence for God are acting consistently.
Todd Pitner, who was converted two and a half years ago, presents his own story and what he believes was a miraculous event. He now runs a website www.iloveatheists.com that seeks to answer the main challenges to Christian belief.
Atheist Gordon Livesey interacts with both stories as we ask questions such as – "Is a Christian's testimony their best evangelistic tool?" and "Is there more to evidence than a purely scientific approach?"
