There are a couple more discussions I had with Mike (my first co-host) that I don’t think are quite ready for prime time, but these are the ones which I feel best exemplify the type of discussion I want the show to be.
Free Will Part 1
We begin the discussion of whether God wanting people to have free will is a sufficient explanation for the problem of evil, and get into a debate about the Garden of Eden.[audio https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7fJFAWbzkK1LXVMTnc3V3liOUU/view?usp=sharing]
Free Will Part 2
We continue the discussion of free will, and Mike explains his view of the difference between loving God and obeying him. Near the end, I ask Mike why God doesn’t at least prevent natural disasters.[audio https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7fJFAWbzkK1UkxDbEs1eEpSQms/view?usp=sharing]
Free Will Part 3
I present a syllogism to argue that, by the Christian belief, God would actually be giving preference to the free will of evil people over innocent people, then we move on to a more philosophical discussion of whether free will even exists at all.[audio https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7fJFAWbzkK1RVpDdnFxcEE0Y0k/view?usp=sharing]
Mike and I both share some of the experiences that led us to the worldviews we have today, and I explain why I sometimes get a little riled in these discussions.[audio https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7fJFAWbzkK1T3BPMXpweThJQU0/view?usp=sharing]
