On Opposing Racism and Philosophical Self-Consciousness

Racism ought to be opposed, refuted, destroyed, eviscerated wherever it is encountered. Decent people everywhere must agree. But are decent people everywhere able to agree? Do all decent people hold to a philosophy strong enough to undergird their opposition to racism? Well, some do and, frankly, some do not. An important question to ask yourself... Continue Reading →

The Epistemological Spiral

Here's my research paper from Dr. Netland's Religious Epistemology course here at TEDS. My paper is a transcendental analysis of the necessary conditions of the possibility of the Inference to the Best Explanation. Inference to the Best Explanation is eminently important in our modern lives. We use it in our scientific investigations to decide between... Continue Reading →

Does Life Have a Purpose?
