Atheists love to label themselves as freethinkers, but as Tim Stratton argues, this is actually an oxymoron! In this episode, Tim and I discuss the Freethinking Argument Against Naturalism (affectionately abbreviated as FAAN). This argument was Tim’s first ever argument he crafted on his own, so it was interesting to get the backstory of how he came up with it.

Tim gives an overview and defense of the entire argument, which is quite a lot to undertake in one episode, which is why this is only part 1. If you need to re-listen a few times to make sure you’ve got it down, we encourage you to do so!

If you’re more of a visual learner, then I would like to point you to the Freethinking Ministries website in order to read some of the articles Tim has written about this argument (and boy has he written a lot). I’ll link to them here in the show notes page.

Remember to leave a rating & review, as that really helps us out in reaching more people with sound apologetics and theology. Stay tuned for part 2 coming next week!
