Are Miracles Real? Are They Logical? – Apologetics #11
What are miracles anyway? And isn’t it easier to just say that miracles are things that we don’t fully understand, and not the hand of God entering our life? That seems… not logical. And if miracles are real, then what is the point of them? How do we know that miracles are actually, miraculous? How do we know that things which are unexplained are actually miracles, and not just things we can’t explain? We’ll answer all these questions.

How the Old Testament Foretold Christ’s Divinity – Apologetics #10
Let’s look at the many prophecies about Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Old Testament. First, Fr. MacPherson will help us understand what a prophecy is, and how it’s different than a prediction. Then we’ll see how throughout the Old Testament, these prophecies get clearer and clearer about who Our Lord would be – yet even still, there was a lot of confusion. Why didn’t people at the time understand who Our Lord was?
The Theology of History: History & the Bible – Apologetics #9
Today we’ll look at two specific points: How are we supposed to interpret some of the more controversial points? Was the God of the Old Testament a God of wrath and jealousy? Also, why did God choose a specific group of people – single them out – as His chosen people? Is that fair?
How Do We Know The Old Testament Is True? – Apologetics #8
Can we trust scripture? How do we know that the Bible is true, much less divinely inspired? Can we really trust that this collection of books from hundreds, thousands of years ago is accurate? And how are we supposed to interpret it?
Did God Have To Give Man Revelation? – Apologetics #7
Did God have to give man revelation? Is revelation necessary for us to know who God is? Or can we know all about God just from our own reason and intellect?
Can God Speak To Us? – Apologetics #6
Today, we’ll investigate the obvious next question – how do we know what to do for this religion? Can we figure it out all on our own? Do we need God to tell us? And is it even possible for God to speak to humans? It initially seems beyond credibility…
Why Worship God? – Apologetics #5
So Far this Podcast has attempted to show why Catholics consider it reasonable to hold that there is a God, and to hold that human beings are distinct from the other animals, having a rational soul. Now the question presents itself: Do human beings have any duties towards God? In other words – is some practice of Religion demanded of one who would live a Reasonable life?
What Does it Mean to be a Man, Man? – Apologetics #4
Fr. Albert will join us to look at man himself. We’ve spent the last three episodes looking at the existence God, now we need to know about us. We know that we exist – that part is easy. But what are we made for? What is our purpose? Or in more apologetical terms – what is the nature of man? This is going to influence all the rest of the episodes, so Fr. Albert will help us get a good foundation today.
The Theory of Evolution: (Updated) Apologetics Series #3
Fr. Paul Robinson will look at the theory of evolution. Can a Catholic hold that evolution and creation are both consistent with each other? Can non-life turn into life? Can life turn into intelligent life? Is there room in the theory of evolution for God? We’ve already seen that God exists – so how did he bring about life on earth – are we able to know for sure?
Objections To God: How To Be An Atheist (Part 1) – Apologetics #2
Fr. Paul Robinson, the Publisher of Angelus Press, and Prior of St. Isidore’s in Denver Colorado, will take on the two most common objections to the existence of God. First, we’ll look at the problem of evil – how can a good God allow or permit evil to exist? Second, we’ll look at the argument that basically, nature, and the world, is simply self-explanatory. There just doesn’t need to be a God, or even any purpose to existence, the argument goes. How should we answer this?
